Creepy crawlies give me the heebie-jeebies, I’m man enough to admit that. Cockroaches are irrevocably linked to nuclear weapons, which bum me out. I’m still a little worried that Earwigs will one day crawl into my head when I’m asleep and eat my brains. And Spiders?
Being the kind of goody two-shoes pacifist that – literally – wouldn’t hurt a Fly, I’ve always felt frustrated at my inability to express my dislike of these anthropods. But not any more! Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon looks, if the trailer is anything to go by, to be the perfect solution to my peculiar predicament, with a veritable army of the blighters in digital format to destroy with high powered weaponry. This particular video shows off the Pesticide Gun which features what must surely be the largest explosion in gaming since the BFG 9000.
The game will see release later this year, visit the official website for more info.
