I'm new to posting deals here, and I don't think I seen someone else post this here. Sorry if this is old.

Normal price is $40, might be worth preordering as I don't think many retail stores will carry this game.

Unusual releases for the Vita... first Spyhunter and then this?

I did enjoy the 360 version though. Like limelight said - goofy but entertaining.

How similar is this game to EDF: Insect Armageddon?

While the mechanics are fairly similar, most seem to consider 2017 to be a much better game than EDF:IA.

THIS game is freaking awesome, those of you that slept on it for the Xbox need to check it out. It's a blast. Millions times better than Insect A. I also can't wait for a proper sequel to roll out for this too.

+1 on another game that will help me convince me to buy a Vita.

I'd rather wait for the (inevitable) $10 off coupon codes and decide from there. Those are still coming sometime in the future... right?

At check out it shows Super Egg Saver 4-7 day free shipping? What happened to the 3 day for free? I'd rather pay $10 more and just get it when/if I want.

People who played IA first might find the gameplay mechanics and graphics too simplistic, but i agree with pretty much everyone who has said that it's the better game. It's also HARD AS HELL on the higher difficulties. IA was a breeze compared to its predecessor.

February 2013 release date, which is roughly two months from now. I just can't see them canceling a project that close to release.

Definitely agree 2017 is the better game.

I was pretty disappointed personally with IA. It was alright, but it somehow wasn't as fun and didn't feel as epic/cheesy as 2017.

I'll probably grab this when it comes out. Any word on online co-op by chance?

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

You might already be aware but lot of that has to do with IA being made by a western developer instead of the usual Japanese one (Sandlot).

Also edf:2017:port has palewing in it, which just ups the level of awesome.

Did the double pack not make it stateside?(2x copies of the game at a lower price than 2 individual copies because everyone knows edf is better co-op)
