    The Buggiest Game of 2011 was...

    EARTH DEFENCE FORCE: INSECT ARMAGEDDON!

    And why are there no topics about this excellent budget title on the first page?

    Was 25% off in the Steam sale not enough for you cheap bastards?

    After a recent viewing of Starship Troopers on Bluray (A great film that I wish had gotten a sequel) and too much time spent at work over December, it proved to be the perfect game to relax with in which I could blow some filthy rotten bugs to smithereens with rocket launchers, laser beams, plasma cannons, miniguns, sentry turrets and all sorts of other fun weapons, a lot of which I've yet to even see.

    I knew what the game was about but I never suspected it would be quite so fun, and outside of the Binding of Isaac has proved to be one of the most entertaining games I've picked up this winter.

    So, who else is playing this awesome game? I've only tried single player so far but I'm ready for some multi-player I think.

    Also, If any of you out in RPS land want in on some down and dirty bug hunting action I've posted a topic in the social section of the forum.

    Oh word? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367093/ Cough. And let's not forget http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0844760/

    But seriously, EDF was pretty fun.

    I don't think http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120201/ was all that great.
    Why are you wearing that stupid human suit?

    As a satire of propaganda and military rah-rah-ism it was pretty great.

    Just because SMiD didn't make it clear, for Christ's sake don't watch that film.

    I was honestly going to buy it (2 copies for coop goodness no less) but I read somewhere on here that it was yet another piss-poor port. So no sale.

    Which is a pity but there's plenty of other games for me to play, been a good few months for coop (Serious Sam, Dungeon Defenders, Saints Row 3).

    How is this game for people terrified of insects? I've been tempted to snap it up, but if spiders are popping up and getting all in my face constantly , I may have to pass. XD

    Spiders aren't insects. Same Phylum, different Class.

    Is it bad that I just got the pun?

    *hangs head in shame*

    In my defence, I did work 12+ hours today and I've been...

    No? Ok, I'll just leave now.

    *slinks away*

    Is it bad that I came into this thread intending to spoil the discussion of buggy games by thinking of a game about insects, only to be IMMEDIATELY disappointed by BOLD text?

    (Also is it bad that I will write a long parenthetical description about why I didn't put the word BOLD in bold; rather than my move hands off this comfy keyboard all the way over to the mouse or indeed even to the square brackets that would be necessary to bold the text?)

    Ctrl-B works fine.

    The EDF game could have been way better with 60 FPS and high res textures. Just that could have ben a neat begin. Then make the difference from players to bot more apparent, and the different unlockables, possibly a slighty better font at the menus.

    But not, we got a game that looks like a poor "PS2" title in 2011.

    Is not even buggier, is just ugly and not very fun.
