PSN Today: Remember Me, EDF: Insect Armageddon, Limbo Vita, more


You’ll never forget today’s PlayStation Store update… and that’s not just a play on Capcom’s Remember Me! But yes, Capcom’s noirish third-person action game has been added to the PlayStation Store today alongside two fantastic games now available to download for the first time.

D3’s Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon was released for the PS3 in 2011 and a downloadable version is now available on the PlayStation Network. Shooting armored alien ants was fun two years ago and it’s still fun today.

Also available today is Playdead’s Limbo. The moody platformer was also originally released for the PS3 in 2011, but today’s re-release is for the Vita. Best of all, it’s a Cross-Buy game with the PS3 version.

More details about the above titles and a few other new releases (including Class of Heroes 2 for the PSP) can be found after the break. And the complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Review: The Only Good Bug is a Dead Bug

In certain corners of the Internet, you’ll find a group of gamers who are very enthusiastic about Earth Defense Force 2017, a budget third-person shooter released in the early days of the Xbox 360. The game featured poor graphics and some absolutely baffling gameplay choices, including several mazelike underground levels and terrible vehicle control. But it has also developed a cult following due to its insane enemy count and the awesomely arcadey “kill ’em all” vibe that runs through the action. Four years later, D3 Publisher has finally seen fit to release a sequel, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. Can they catch lightning in a bottle twice? Well, they did name the main character Lightning Alpha… (more…)

New Releases: Earth Defense Force Insect Armageddon, More

The Summer slowdown is here. Just five games are scheduled to be released this week. But as a wise (and animated) man once said: “Celebrate your country’s independence by blowing up a small part of it.” And that’s just what I plan on doing with D3 Publisher’s Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon (PS3, Xbox 360), the closest thing we’ll ever get to a Starship Troopers video game.

Also available this week is a quartet of games that couldn’t be more diverse:

D3’s E3 lineup is Ben 10 kart game, EDF: Insect Armageddon, White Knight II

D3 Publisher – known for their hilarious tongue twisters (D3’s Dream Trigger 3D for the 3DS, anyone?) – has a short but powerful E3 lineup.

Ben 10 Galactic Racing is a kart game in the Ben 10 universe, featuring tracks on five planets and “four-player multiplayer mayhem.” Earth Defense Force: Insect Armaggedon brings giant insects and aliens to Earth once again, calling on the EDF to stop them. And White Knight Chronicles II is the long-awaited (at least, for Mike Gutierrez) sequel by Level-5 that is finally coming to America.

More information can be found at D3 Publisher’s website. Check out full details of their lineup after the jump. (more…)

Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon buzzes into stores July 5

15 years ago Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum used a Mac to take down an alien invasion in Independence Day. This year, D3 Publisher will be asking gamers to take down another extraterrestrial threat during our nation’s birthday as Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon has been given a July 5th release date on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

While that doesn’t quite fall within the previously announced “Spring 2011” release window, gamers in the Boston area will get to take up arms with the EDF very soon. D3 Publisher is bringing a playable demo of the game to PAX East, which is scheduled for March 11th through the 13th.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to stock up on Raid.
