G4: "In our first-look at Earth Defense Forces 4 we hit a bug-infested city equipped with our trusty weapons and set about fighting spiders the size of a Cadillac."
Seems like a franchise with a lot of fan base surprisingly, but I do wonder why they don't step it up a bit. Obvious improvements could fix a lot of issues gamers have with this game and open it up to new players...
I don't think this is ever going to be a mainstream game, it is too niche to me, it might not have the finances(sales) to invest in a new engine/more developers ect. Problem is if your not a big name game like borderlands ect, you fall through the cracks and are overlooked by a vast majority of the gaming population.
True, but I'm sure they could modify the engine slightly, unless like you said its strictly finances that are holding it back. These games usually retail for $40-50 before dropping down to a fraction of that, so I wouldn't be surprised if they do make their money back one way or the other. Releasing it as an XBL/PSN download would be smart too.
It is also a budget game, they may not have the time or personal to do any substantial tweaking. I thought they retailed for $39.99.
The first game was still the best in my opinion, but its a solid series overall.
