COMPETITION | Win Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable!

We got a big kick out of  EDF 2017 Portable's pick-up-and-play brilliance, our sides are aching from the hilariously awful B-movie elements, and it's a game that's perfectly suited to the Vita. Unfortunately, though, Namco decided to stick up a bit of a barrier between the unabashed bug-squishing romp and our fun receptors in the form of a big, fat, full-retail RRP...which it doesn't really deserve.

However, we've got a way around that for one of you lucky people...we've got a free download code for the game ready to be snapped up.

Here's what Jon said about the game in his review:

Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is as terrible and brilliant as it ever was, and feels more at home on the Vita than it did on the Xbox 360. Insane pick up and play action makes it a perfect fit for bug hunting on the move, while the new guns, (inexplicably locked) Pale Wing and solid multiplayer will delight existing fans.

Here's how you enter:

All you have to do is post a comment in the box below telling us how you'd prepare Earth's defences for an insectoid alien invasion. The entry window for this one will close on Thursday 24th January at 23:59 GMT.

A few things to bear in mind:

  • One entry per user (you can comment more than once, but we'll only count your entry the first time)
  • Please use a real email address in case you prove victorious.

Good luck!

I'd build giant cans of bug repellent and for those who survive that, a giant motorised fly swatter! And just like that, the earth is saved.

Giant jam jars full of sweet smelling sticky stuff doted around the world....DONE!

I'd construct one of those giant electrical swatters that look a bit like tennis rackets crossed with an electrical fence. Deploy it as a shield...of curse, you'd need somewhere to put the corpses.

1 x Giant Doc Martens Boot
1 x Enormous Rocket Powered Pogo Stick
Lots of squishy fun times

Cover myself in ant powder and bug spray then wrestle each insect to death one by one.

zoaly  Jan. 21, 2013 at 21:32

I'd get Bruce Campbell with a space rocket powered chainsaw and a black star sawn off shotgun and say to the insect invaders queen Yo, she-bitch! Let's go!

I'd just put a 1 by 1 meter square pane of reinforced glass into geostationary orbit. Every time I open the window insects still just fly into the glass, no matter what its size. Silly billys.

Every young psychopath knows the effect of a magnifying glass along with sunlight on an ant. I'd suggest harnessing that effect on a larger scale, with the lens of the Hubble space telescope.

I would stock up Golden Delicous, Bramley's, Granny Smiths. Cox's and every other variant of apple...

practice my pitching skills until they are lethal...then face the invading forces with Storm 1 and the rallying battle cry of 'how do you like them apples!!!!'

The best way to prepare Earth's Defence Force against an insect invasion is to get them to play Body Harvest on the N64.

pete_21  Jan. 22, 2013 at 08:22

I'd simply inform Chuck Norris...

danny686  Jan. 22, 2013 at 08:31

Build a GIANT magnifying glass on the moon and use it to aim concentrated "LAZOR" sun rays at the invading bugs to burn them all to a crisp!

kid_jump  Jan. 22, 2013 at 08:49

use my 360 to burn them due to how freaking hot it can get! >.<

Rike  Jan. 22, 2013 at 09:52

I would lower the rrp of assualt rifles thus allowing pocket money purchases, so the kids can do their part for the federation and our future.
Would you like to know more?

screally  Jan. 22, 2013 at 10:28

I would cover everything in the packaging scissors and the like come in, best of luck penetrating that in any way.

broken2007  Jan. 22, 2013 at 10:36

I would use my white materia to summon the "Ultimate White Magic," Holy, which summons the full power of the Planet to protect the continuation and harmony of life.

Aeschylus  Jan. 22, 2013 at 13:08

I would drive around the country collecting all the pesky headmasters who insist on shutting schools at the first sign of a snowflake...

I would then force said headmasters to build a 30 foot wall made out of Jaffa Cakes (what insect does not like the delicious gooey jelly in a JC) as punishment for their "fear of litigation" nonsense excuses.

I would then take the 4000 earing clad HMV staff who all seem to be under 20 and set them lose to attack insects on the promise of a proper job for any that survive...

And if all that fails simply feed them the blockbuster staff, as they are even worse...

Job done

Crieff  Jan. 22, 2013 at 16:34

Inform Cpl. Dwayne Hicks, he knows all about bug hunts and with him and his squad of ultimate bad-asses protecting us via all manner of differing weapons (I wont list them, you all know the ones) we'd be fine.

Cwiiis  Jan. 23, 2013 at 11:14

I'd build the infrastructure to disable all lights on Earth, causing the insects to fly away towards the sun.

Boomboomoo  Jan. 27, 2013 at 21:51

Id put bug repellet in atomic bombs
