Will Earth Defense Force sequel be buggy enough? Publisher D3 announced some pre-order doo-dads for Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon today, along with new screenshots of the game to supposedly get you excited. However, none of the screenshots shows more than ten bugs onscreen at a time. What kind of Earth Defense Force fights fewer than a dozen bugs? That would hardly be worth their time. Your local mall security or neighborhood watch should be able to handle that just fine. The above screenshot was the most crowded. Let’s take a closer look: I count six. Maybe seven. At least the price of gas is suitably nightmarish. Remember the gas station in the original Deus Ex? In that version of dystopia, gas cost $4 a gallon! Fortunately, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armaggedon doesn’t come out until July 5th. Hopefully, they’ll add more bugs by then.
