    I just hope it feels more arcadey like 2017 than the tone it took for Insect Armageddon. 2017 was superior to IA simply because 2017 didn’t seem to take itself seriously. Being able to shoot a rocket into an ant’s corpse and watch it bounce around the walls of a cave or a bunch of building’s is why I like 2017 a whole lot more.

  • More like 2017, less like IA….  IA just wasn’t fun.

    Also they should tell us already if they are going to localize the Vita Portable 3 release in NA…

  • Is this a Sandlot title? IA wasn’t bad but lacked both the charm and the sense of scale of 2017 (Plus 2017’s fabulously chrome space ships). Classes were interesting, but I won’t be disappointed if they don’t carry that mechanic over.

    If you own a 360, you must own EDF 2017. I’m pretty sure it’s some sort of law.

  • …said chrome space ships:

  • This one’s by Sandlot, so yeah, it’s going to be more like 2017. It’s probably the first EDF that isn’t developed on a tight budget too. Reginleiv was great, so I’m really looking forward to this.

      It probably will still be on a budget, to at least some degree. But to say EDF’s come a long way from its Simple 2000 beginnings is an understatement.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I am hyped up!

    Oh and. I hope the dubbing will be just as awesome:

    omg yes!

    IA was a goddamn disappointment. The game was building up then BAM, that’s the end, that was the last mission. What?
