Beta Test My Beats

Astro A38 Beta Headphones Are a New Approach to a Crowded Market

Let's face it, if you're in the market for a gaming headset there are literally hundreds of choices. And in my personal opinion, there are very few "wrong" choices to make if you are willing to invest in a pair. Some folks will balk at $100 or $200 pair of headsets, but if you use them daily they are well worth the price you pay. We've been a longtime fan of Astro's headsets on this site, reviewing numerous pairs over the years. But their latest endeavor is a bit different than their last, and it might be an industry first.

Earth Defense Force 2017 Co-Op Review

The cult classic Earth Defense Force franchise has made its way to the PlayStation Vita. It's a re-release of the Xbox 360 Earth Defense Force 2017, but it's not a straight port. Instead we get added features like four player co-op, new characters, and a handful of new levels. Our latest review takes on the ravagers head on.

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable Out Now, Launch Trailer Looks Buggy

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is available now on the PlayStation Vita via the PlayStation Store. If you're not familiar with the series, I'll sum it up for you: You play as Storm 1, part of the Earth Defense Force. You forcibly defend the Earth from alien attacks. These aliens, called Ravagers, come in the form of giant bugs, hulking robots and menacing drop ships. You control a little dude with strangely animated hips and blast the bugs while gathering better weapons and armor. As an added bonus, the buildings which make up the cities you're supposed to be defending will crumble if you so much as look at them funny. There is no penalty for knocking over a skyscraper for the sake of a good explosion. It's simple, fun, and addictive.

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable Out Next Month

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable will be out early next year. How early? How about January 8th, which is just in time to catch the trade-in rush from all those single playthrough games you got for Christmas. This announcement literally doubles our title count for co-op games coming out in January. Hopefully some more games pop up, or it's going to be a long a winter.

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable Landing on Vita Soon

Earth Defense Forces 3: Portable is coming to the United States as Earth Defense Force 2017: Portable for the PlayStation Vita.  The four player co-op game is a remake of the original PlayStation and Xbox game.  Several features have been added for the release including much lauded four player online co-op, something that was limited to split screen co-op in the original.  Obviously, split screen doesn't fly on a 6 inch portable screen.

EDF 3: Portable Trailer is the Best Thing You'll See All Day

The EDF is back and better than ever! Earth Defense Forces 3: Portable launches for the Playstation Vita tomorrow. EDF3: Portable is a portable... port of the cult classic Earth Defense Force 2017. Now it features four player online co-op and the flying PaleWing character from Earth Defense Force 2, AKA Global Defense Force, which was never released in the US. The bad news is that this new iteration of the third person bug buster is only available in Japan (for now).

Earth Defense Forces 3: Portable Puts Bugs in Your Pocket

The Earth Defense Force series is one of those guilty pleasure type of experiences. These games are very similar to the shlocky 50s B-Movies that surely inspired them; full of sheer ridiculousness on a grand scale. The B-movies never won too many Oscars, and Earth Defense Force games don't get Game of the Year honors often, but that doesn't make them bad. Sometimes you just want to shoot giant bugs for a bit.

Earth Defense Forces 3: Portable Coming to the PS Vita: Featuring Four Player Co-Op and Jetpacks

I'm a big fan of the EDF frachise. The "so-bad-they're-good" titles have captivated me since Earth Defense Force 2017. I love taking on the alien Ravagers, easily mangling giant insects, crippling robot Hectors, and menacing drop ships. The sequel, EDF: Insect Armageddon, was a fair game, but lacked the unpolished charm (and the 52 stages with multiple difficulty levels) of 2017.
