EDF: Insect Armageddon's mechs look competent enough

Let's hope I'm not being overly optimistic here. Based on this new trailer for Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, the mechs look fairly useful. Huge improvement over the previous game. Did anyone use the mechs -- or any...

New Destructoid Episode: Duke Nukem, Catherine, and Wii U

Hey gang, long time no typing. In the wake of E3, I am suffering from what the experts are referring to as "nerd flu," but which is more likely a hybrid of the T-Virus, Captain Trips, and the Legacy Virus. In spite of Kinect...

Hands-on: Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

Earth Defense Force is a very beloved series here at Destructoid. Various members on the team, especially Colette Bennett, adore this franchise to death. I've never played any of the games before so I've never quite understood the appeal.

After checking out Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon though, I totally get it. I now see why this franchise is so loved and fans are going to really dig the new improvements and changes. Better graphics, online co-op, Horde mode and more are all detailed below.

Rumor: New Earth Defense Force coming in 2011 photo
Rumor: New Earth Defense Force coming in 2011
by Matthew Razak

Ummmm... F*CK YES!

Someone over at NeoGAF posted an image of a banner at a GameStop convention touting a new Earth Defense Force game coming out in 2011. Strangely there was nothing else except the banner at the conference and no consoles were listed on it, so we're still running this one under the rumor header.

However, there is still more proof out there that this is real. Not only do we have a fancy place holder site for the game at edfia.com, which gives the sequel the name Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon (greatest name ever), but there's also this story over at Cheap Ass Gamer showing a tweet about the game being listed for release by a distributor. We've gotten in touch with D3 to see if we can get confirmation.

Seriously, if this is true it means that both Duke Nukem Forever and a new Earth Defense Force game have been revealed within two days of each other. How is the earth still in one piece?
