Coming out in spring 2011 for both the Xbox360 and PS3. Will have online co-op (can’t find any info about whether or not split-screen is still supported). It’s being made by Vicious Cycle instead of Sandlot. Not sure what to expect, but the video has me excited.
Ouch Vicious Circle made Matt Hazard… Boy did that game suck… It wasn’t totally unplayable, but was one of the blandest game I ever played (for a couple of hours before I remembered I had other things to play…)
This is my big worry. EDF was a barely competent videogame, by today’s full-price standards, but it won you over with its sheer charm. What I want is that charm again, with the technological improvements that come to the team through the practice of having done it once already.
I’m kind of sad that it isn’t Sandlot doing this. Their latest Wii game, which was basically Norse Defense Force, was pretty much an improved and more interesting version of EDF and actually had pretty good online play… on the damn Wii! Vicious Cycle is a bit more of an unknown quantity when it comes to this kinda stuff.
Those are really awful screens and I almost felt bad posting them. The short gameplay videos aren’t much better. I can only hope that sometime between now and next spring, they manage to raise their bug count by a factor of at least ten.
