Andrew "Cubninja" Gaskill:
I'm a big fan of the EDF frachise. The "so-bad-they're-good& quot; titles have captivated me since Earth Defense Force 2017. I love taking on the alien Ravagers, easily mangling giant insects, crippling robot Hectors, and menacing drop ships. The sequel, EDF: Insect Armageddon, was a fair game, but lacked the unpolished charm (and the 52 stages with multiple difficulty levels) of 2017.
PS Vita owners will be delighted to know that Earth Defense Forces 3: Portable is launching next month in Japan. (Yeah, this time the "force" is plural. Go figure.) It's not a new game, but a port of the superior EDF 2017, with some added extra co-op love. The title will support four player online co-op, and huge upgrade from the two player local co-op that was available on the console version. Check out the video and bask in the glory of low polygon count models, weird swivel hips, and the panicked screams of a million Japanese citizens:
