    Interesting times in the 360 scene. We got a new dash update that broke AP2.5 titles and caused a few changes- <a href="" target="_blank"></a>
    Alongside this various slim drives now have custom firmwares and tools to flash it (although this last update changed things a bit) and some other tools becoming more viable.

    Other releases are Japanese region dupes for the most part

    An XBLA release
    Wombo combo just started a discussion on it <a href="" target="_blank"></a> , it is getting very good reviews though. Gamespot gameplay/playthrough <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    Some DLC

    Another of the new character DLC packages <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    Some are calling it one of the best fallout DLC releases. <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    Unleashed dropped a couple of guides for Brink and Homefront for those that follow that sort of thing.

    Region locked PAL only by the looks of things. We already saw the NTSC release <a href="" target="_blank"></a> and Japanese in <b>Earth_Defense_Force_Insect_Armageddon_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b>

    Being out in the US already some reviews have appeared. They are very mixed even among the "big" reviewers with most negatives being compared to the other shooting games available and the predecessor it is not as strong but fun if you like that sort of thing.

    Amazon UK description
    The bugs are back in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, the most concentrated insect invasion the world has yet to encounter. Mankind faces the end of human civilization at the hands (or claws) of thousands of gigantic bugs unless the elite Earth Defense Force can stop them!

    Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a completely new video game developed by Vicious Cycle that expands the Earth Defense Force 2017 universe (Japanese Title "Earth Defense Force 3" developed by SANDLOT) and continues to follow the rich history of fun and addictive gameplay that makes the franchise a cult classic. Insect Armageddon is set in New Detroit and features a Campaign mode that lets up to three players team up online to battle the insects and aliens across the completely destructible city.

    The nonstop action gameplay in Insect Armageddon is the fastest and deadliest in the series. To arm their EDF soldiers, players must cash in points to collect over 150 unique weapons and four upgradeable armor sets. In addition, the game also features a six-player Survival mode that pits a human squad against a nonstop onslaught of the largest enemies the aliens have to offer. New Detroit's giant bug problem is unavoidable, and mankind's last hope lies with the Earth Defense Force to defend the world from the insect swarm, even if it means blowing up the entire city as part of the extermination process.

    Epic Battles Against Hordes of Insect and Giant Alien Robot Invaders - Players will face-off against non-stop swarms of attackers ranging from giant ants and spiders to robots standing more than 100 meters tall for the most outrageously destructive battles ever seen before.

    Three-Player Online Co-op Campaign Mode - Play online as a co-op squadron and work together to battle through the alien and insect swarms for world supremacy!
