I couldn't see one in the catalog when I searched for it, so I made one, EDF 5 PC release when?
>EDF 5 for pc
I NEED IT
I hear the VA work isnt as good though. 4 was really campy it was perfect. I hope we get it sometime this year.
An EDF thread would be nice. Maybe you should actually put in some fucking effort into making one.
Its edf. Just fucking post what you like.
To defend our mother Earth from any niggerly attack!
How do you effectively play as Fencer in 4.1? I got an okay melee lance, and I used the reflector shield to zip around. In the higher levels, the damage isn't cutting it, and the reflector capacity is too low to properly zip around. Also, whats a good difficulty to play at solo?
once you get some goodweapons and armor you can manage most levels. Just know at some point you are going to be swarmed so try to make sure you for a good spear.
How does the weapon spawn system work? Can I get any weapon at any mission level, or is the weapon level tied to the mission level?
Tied to mission level. Better weapons spawn at higher levels, but some will only start spawning past a certain mission.
>the reflector capacity is too low to properly zip around.
The reflector capacity is never too low, you can use it all the way until the end of the game, in fact, you should be. You may want to get a better blasthole spear if you're not one-shotting ants and spiders though, I remember the start of inferno being kind of a pain because it takes a while to get a decent spear.
>end of the game
Just to clarify, I mean the end of Inferno
Fencer overall is arguably the worst class in game. I'd say it belongs in the trash.
Anyway time to dump some pics I have been meaning to dump for a while.
>Fencer overall is arguably the worst class in game. I'd say it belongs in the trash.
Fencer has better survivability than any other class, can 1v1 the big nigs (queen ants, bees, king spiders, etc) and has the tools to deal with most threats pretty easily. I hate playing fencer because it's so boring, but it's far from trash.
>Fencer has better survivability than any other class
In what world? Fencer armour counts for squat on high difficulties.
Ranger can bring more direct firepower to the table and keep NPC's alive longer. The Stringer alone proves his worth being able to obliterate anything in a few shots from across the map even on Inferno.
Wing Diver can just kite most things and saturate most of the map with mind bullets. While she does not have the range of the Ranger she does carry the firepower at close range.
Air Raider - Now have you heard from our Lord and Saviour the Whale?
I could go on about the even greater things the other classes do like the Ranger being able to bring a one man Exterminatus with him that wipes out half the map in one salvo even on Inferno. If you think the Fencer is really any good you need to git gud with the other classes as there is nothing the Fencer brings to the table that the other classes don't do better. It's why they actually had to buff him considerably in EDF5.
>In what world? Fencer armour counts for squat on high difficulties.
In the world where you can move around at high speeds deflecting projectiles from any enemies that attack you, as long as you have decent spacial awareness you can repeat that for as long as you want. Ranger is objectively the best class, so i'll ignore him. Kiting with Wing Diver is good in theory but very difficult to actually do in a lot of situations, and she can't do much against when stunlocked by blue drones or deroys. Air Raider is too reliant on his vehicles to absorb damage and gets fucked once he runs out of credits. Whenever I play with friends, the Fencer is almost always the last one alive, and with good reason.
> If you think the Fencer is really any good you need to git gud with the other classes as there is nothing the Fencer brings to the table that the other classes don't do better.
Fencer is probably my worst class, because I so rarely play as him. As I said, he's boring.
Stand aside you fucking wimp, because the lord of motherfucking war is coming through.
You want to snipe some retard with a cannon you stole from a battleship? We got you. Want to move faster than any other class? That's right, this mean son of a bitch can outrun any enemy in the game with the miracle that's the javelin launcher. Want to spear as may enemies as you want for an illegal amount of damage? Those lances have a range of 270 meters and you better use them to spear spaceships. Want to fling enemies' attacks right back in their stupid fucking faces? Just bring a shield. You want dakka? We got dakka, as well as an array of highly explosive DEATH.
All this is amplified in 5 where you get the ability to fucking fly. Sit down you shitass wing diver, we have a real fucking MAN here. Not only do you have more armor that a goddamn tank, you are also never getting hit in the first place. Those coward aliens should have never come to earth in their stupid fucking spaceships, because fencer is going to send them all home in a fucking casket.
>You want to snipe some retard with a cannon you stole from a battleship?
Then you're probably playing Air Raider.
>We got dakka, as well as an array of highly explosive DEATH.
The best weapons require an Air Raider to use, the rest are simply comparable to other weapons for other classes
>All this is amplified in 5 where you get the ability to fucking fly.
Fencers cannot fly; That is an outright lie. Did you mean "Jump Good"?
>you are also never getting hit in the first place
If you're using anything but melee you are for sure getting hit. Fencer weapons fire and recover slower than a railgun turret rotates (and that's very slow).
Now that I've said all kinds of bad words to you, I'll say some nice ones. You're absolutely right, they have excellent land mobility with obviously unintentional deflector/dash combo. They also have high health, a fact that matters sometimes. They also can reflect webs and other horrific projectiles, this is extremely useful.
I find fencers when playing with others to be great at a shitload of fire to help out with and to kite. Where the range and air raider are the rock depending on whats going on. Fencer can hold its own for sure though.
All I want is mod support for EDF.
Iron Rain also is getting it's OST released on same day as the game on April 11th. http://archive.fo/N8458
>All I want is mod support for EDF.
If you're extremely patient you can do it in the PC release of 4.1, there's already a handful of custom weapons (custom behavior not model) on top of the stuff that seems useful like free use of the Air Raider slots, online mission through the regular campaign menu and the hidden weapons.
Wasnt there some madlad jap modder who did shit like give hectors wings and other crazy shit?
Yeah, but the way he achieved it is private.
I bet he had access to dev tools or something. It was some neat stuff he did.
>Inb4 he is EDF dev in secret.

linking video being discussed, I'm assuming this is the one you're talking about :^)
Thats the one I"ve seen. Shame we can't do that crap.
The Nips and their own crazy little world.
Yea the VA and song are sub-par compared to 4.1, though some voice lines made me laugh with a buddy for sounding so bad it was funny. Not the same bad as 4.1 more like "did they just pull randoms off the street for this?" bad
I do like how Journalists are shilling EDF for retards that got boned by Anthem. http://archive.fo/vpahk
In other news, Iron Rain preview of it's vehicles. I can't really share the pics properly so I'll share the article http://archive.fo/BE8lu
It wasn't that hard anon?
Apparently EDF IR is being considered an esport with a 2vs2 mode.
I feel like iron rain is going to be a blacksheep but we will see.
It will unless if it can come to PC
If it is a blacksheep I could see a port to PC in an attempt to recoup losses.
>Loli in charge of the giant incests
If they made this canon I would be pleased.

Can't webm this but can tell you where gameplay is. Skip to about just after 22:11 in.
Okay I am just going to say it. Looks not too bad
Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.
New trailer for Iron Rain.
Is anyone excited for it though overall?
Whole shitload of Iron Rain screenies. Too many to post.
might be okay if it doesn't end abruptly like Insect Armageddon.
Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.
EDF Iron Rain comes with a weeb shop I see.
I get the feeling anons on /vg/ don't bother to look past the index page to see if there is activity.
This game is going to fail I bet but I think it might be a lot of fun.
Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.
Probably. I have noticed whenever I do a news dump it seems to be whatever last threads I post in are the ones that are set for discussion in the day.
Anyway EDF6 Rap. It's an April Fools but kind of good shitpost material
Ah Japan, such a crazy insane nation. Sure wish I knew what the fuck they were saying though?
An interview pretty much confirmed PC ports of the games.
<Recent games have been released for PlayStation 4. But is there any possibility these games will come to other platforms?
>Okajima: “Like PC?”
<Well I know you guys usually eventually port to PC, so I mean like Xbox One or Switch.
>Okajima: “If there is a huge demand from the users, then of course we’re going to think about it.”
This one from 2 months ago pretty much confirms it.
<My last question: Is there a possibility that Earth Defense Force 5 will be released for PC?
>Okajima: "Maybe you remember Earth Defense Force 4.1. After the launch, there was a PC release on Steam. I think that [Earth Defense Force 5] will have one as well, but I do not know when."
So maybe then is best we'll get?
Is /strek/ behind EDF advertisement campaign?
/monster/ and class pics http://archive.fo/AH35t
>That giant spider
Don't know what it is about it but I just can't help but laugh at how comical it looks.
Probably cause the eyes make it look retarded.
So Iron Rain is releasing. Anyone importing it at all?
Its got this weird "we want the western market" sort of appeal and the game is probably going to suffer for it. But who knows, maybe the blend between the edf formula and that might work out. prob not tho
This is what sweet dreams are made of.
I really want that EDF sports bra to wear
>that blatant fanservice
It doesn't take much to be a slut in japan, does it? At least the guys are buff enough.
Well she is using a G36 so clearly not trying hard enough.
A G36 with a picatinny rail handle rail and not the handle with the integrated scope no less
It's a G36C
Also known as the G36Cuck.
>every class can use every weapon
How crazy does it get?
Wait so I can be a Wing Diver with a minigun?
>Can be a literal rocket angel
Shame no footage TORpedo
What is customization like? Missions? Enemies? Looked very bullet spongey in vids.
>then there's spiders that poop out mini spiders
Are you scared of the miracle of birth anon?
I guess I was the only one that played Insect Armageddon. They had massive spiders that would drop smaller exploding ticks.
>Friend says I should try EDF
>Here anon you watch me play for a while
>He proceeds to stand on a tree and farm ants on the same mission for two hours
Luckily I did end up trying it for myself and had a blast, but really that must've been the worst way to try and sell someone on the series.
>He played Insect Armageddon
Please tell me you didn't buy it at least?
Is your friend literally that guy?
I did actually pay for it, I'd just come off of 2017 and EDF 2025 was just a twinkle in its developers eye. Game's alright if you can deal with the lower difficulty, though most of that is due to the AI companions you get that can revive you in lieu of having friends. Glad to see some of the good things from it are making their way into Iron Rain, the way you unlock weapons is similar as well as the Heavy Striker has the same ability as the battle armor in IA. Looking forward to being able to use it to fire grenade launchers at point blank without being knocked down again.
Seems to be that Iron Rain is the top seller in Nippon last week http://archive.fo/RTG0o
But not sure how those units compare to EDF4 and 5.
Typically 300k overall is an insanely good amount for this game series. If it sells at least 200k then it's a tremendous success.
But what about you know, initial week sales? I have been searching for that and found nothing.
Looks like EDF:IR is a modest success. http://archive.fo/DOsgQ
i bought it too thinking "oh look another edf game"
iron rain just looks like another attempt at an IA game tbh.
I think they are looking at a Starship Troopers license and going for a Starship Troopers game. They keep doing crossover promotions in nippon all the time.
>iron rain just looks like another attempt at an IA game tbh.
I feel everyone thinks the same but from reactions to the game it supposedly good.
Well we won't know until it really comes West or PC
Polite sage as nothing really contributed to topic.
So good in depth Slav review for anons interested:
<Bad late game missions and enemies
I am more disturbed by Slav choice of waifu more than anything from that.
Well it's interesting how their reviews compare to these fags. Like completely different tastes: http://archive.fo/u9NcK
But anon denim shorts
the lewdest fabric
I hope you immediately fug the cuckchan out of your waifu if you ever catch her visiting that site
I didn't even notice that because I was looking at her denim. Let me fix that real quick
Do Slavs have better taste though?
She needs stockings
>Do Slavs have better taste though?
Compared to americans everyone has a better taste tbh
>ass: niggers, spics, sandniggers and americans
>boobs: the rest of the world
really makes you think
The real question though is who is footfetish?
A fetish we deserve but don't need right now
You call those feet?
This thread is going places.
>his feet take barely 1/5th of the pic
Is this an armpit thread now?
While normalfags fight the Ass vs Boobs skirmish, the real war of Armpits vs Feet is going on
Which one of you fags wrote this?
>In short, yes. It's weird and it would put me off altogether
No one is ever going to use the overdrive of the prowl rider when this is its normal ability.
Picked 4.1 up a few weeks back when it was on sale. Buddy and I had no idea what the fuck we were getting ourselves into, very quickly decided it was so stupid it wrapped back around to being amazing.
It's called fun anon. You'll get used to it.
Just kill bugs anon. You in the MI now.
