This looks so awesome. Unfortunately, it will probably be a year after its release in Japan until we see it here. If at all. Not sure how the last games performed saleswise, last time out. I love them though, they mix that 80s arcade feel with modern tech. This looks like the engine finally got updated with new lighting, speedtree and possibly physically based rendering.

Looking at other videos on the site, it seems that it will release in Japan with English subtitles. This may be the first game Ive ever imported(at least, via the Japanese Playstation Store).

I don't think they announced English subtitles. The trailers are often subtitled because that's just something D3Publisher likes to do with most of it games.

Game looks like a free to play game.

Salty because it's not on the Xbox one

Just buy a PS4 Slim, you won't regret it!

Also, to quote yourself: you want it otherwise you wouldn't be reading the article!

I would've liked some graphical updates by now, this looks like the very first game that game out 10 years ago. Still looks fun though.


Earth Defense Force 5 Is Stupid Fun

ESTNN Writes: "“EDF! EDF!”, my friend and I cheer into the microphones late at night as hordes of ants, wasps, and frogs with laserguns threaten to overrun our position. The screen is littered with the remains of their comrades, making it hard to see how many they are.

In moments like these, I remember why I love video games, when a friend and I have at it with the same glee we had before we became bitter adults. Even if those games are just about shooting bugs with bigger and bigger guns.

In short: Earth Defense Force 5 is excellent, and you should grab someone dear to you to shoot some bugs."

I plan on playing this and EDF6 soon.

It really is. The dialog is complete hilarity. Every person is just so dumb and nonsensical. 5/5

Satisfying visual feedback, so many games have lost this principle and it's sad. Almost everything you do has an interesting and Satisfying reaction, making everything physics based is the key to that, watching everything fly, crumble, and react to your weapons, and slowly increasing you weapons capabilities to do so to an absurd degree, just keeps ramping up the satisfaction of how good it feels to play this game.

Games are great, they may not be the greatest visually, but man do they really push the hardware they’re on cpu wise

I'm a big fan of how you can blow buildings apart with no consequence. :D
