Nice Starship Troopers reference there, Jeff.

Do they still like the taste of my bullets?

EDF! EDF!

I really enjoyed the one that came out not long after the 360 launch. I haven't been able to capture the magic since that, even if the newer games are technically better.

Oh yes, to the beginning stains strains of Koi Weekend. It's like I never left yesterday at this time..

EDF is still a thing...

I haven't played the newer two (yet) so I hope that isn't the case for me because oh wow, that first one at launch. The fun times I had.

Super pumped about this QL

"Hell... It's about time"

EDF! EDF!

@brad: Picking up Armor increases your overall armor level and hitpoints. You to gather as much as possible so you can take on harder difficulty levels to get more powerful weapons to take on even harder levels.

You can destroy all buildings.

The Wing Meter needs to be recharged before you shoot your energy weapons again.

Also, I am surprised that you all hate fun.

I will never understand the appeal of this franchise.

Posted by KenpachiRamaSama

Man the final boss of the first EDF was one of the most intense things in games ever.

EDF! EDF!

Posted by Abendlaender

Oh man, at this rate somebody's aunt will make 75$ per hour very soon!

This game looks well....like EDF I guess. Never really got the appeal

Posted by Adaptor

This looks like a really advanced Dreamcast game... I'm kinda diggin' it!

Posted by Village_Guy

Man, I always these games were dumb - but right now I really want to play it -.-'

Edited by RobertOrri

Didn't this game come out last year?

Anyway, you can tell this is a new EDF game because the pickups are actually 3D objects with physics this time around, not sprites.

I wouldn't call these great games or anything but they can be fun. There is a grind since you have to farm armor and weapon pickups for higher difficulty levels.

These games scratch the same kind of itch as Dynasty Warriors games for me, just with more ranged combat and explosions. Yeah, they're not super deep. But sometimes you just want videogame catharsis, and flying over a bunch of giant insects dropping plasma bombs on them delivers.

Woah. I just watched Starship Troopers for the first time in like 15 years yesterday and then Jeff pulls out that Buenos Aires reference. =)

Giant insects?

because Insect Armageddon was a terrible EDF game.

I don't believe that's true. If it was or not doesn't equal not being recalled as part of the series and completely overlooked by saying the "last one was 2017" "the last one was 7/8 years ago".

I'm 28 minutes into the quick look. Does Brad ever realize there's a setting for camera rotation speed? What about fencer controls? Or does he just ignore everyone who tells him to check things that might be important?

Edited by 71Ranchero

Brads tunnel vision can be a bit much at times.

Posted by jagehtso

P.S. Brad is bad at games.

"I really dont think theres anything else"

"whats that change fencer controllers, is that like, re-map it for this dude"

"maybe"

MAYBE

The Grape and "Map of a mountain 2" had me in tears. I live for QLs like these.

Posted by Seroth

Man, this was hard to watch, which is a shame, because the game looks like a lot of fun.

Edited by goreyfantod

@everettescott: I wish they had brought Kessler back to do a guest Quick Look. His QL of EDF:IA with Ryan & Patrick was high-larious.

Posted by jbuchan76

I've played the first 3 matches / what ever they're called in the first chapter. I have to say thus far i liked the other EDF's better :(

Here's hoping they'll introduce something cool later in the game..

EDF! EDF! EDF!

Posted by crusader8463

Wish this was on PC. Looks like a fun mindless co-op game. Makes me wish some one would make a good Starship troopers game.

Posted by KenpachiRamaSama

These guys do not understand the modern art that is EDF

Posted by Benmo316

This is the best kind of awful.

Posted by DannyHibiki

The gundam ladies' beam twintails are radical! A+++ would play again

Posted by SharkMan

one the best quicklooks of 2014 so far

Edited by Overbite

EDF! EDF!

I really wanna get this, maybe after Dark Souls 2.

Unfortunately, Brad is playing pretty badly. He'll complain about the Fencer's vertical jump but never leverages it to set himself up on a perch. He'll try to spin up his minigun when he doesn't have distance. He doesn't check his back. He doesn't level buildings to get at what's behind them. Doesn't use the dodge-roll very much.

Regarding the slowness of the reload, these are starting weapons. The more drops you get, the more options you have. Variants of the same weapons will have trade-offs:

-faster reload /smaller clip or lower stopping power

-smaller clip + stronger hitting power

-rebounding bullets etc

-some rifles will have shotgun-like properties, or be like elephant guns.

You start off with basic stuff. Part of the fun/challenge is getting those upgrades and dealing with their quirkiness until you get ones that are straight upgrades instead of trade-offs.

how is there not a quick look for earth defense force 2017??? shame on you giant bomb

Edited by PimblyCharles

This is probably a real dumb question since it is an Earth Defense Force game, but are there spiders in this? (Haven't watched yet)

I wish Sandlot would make another Gigantic Drive(R.A.D.) game.
