The Earth Defense Force Wiki


The ending kind left me annoyed. Do they intend to make more chapters as DLC?Icon and libary 06:09, July 9, 2011 (UTC)Icon and libary


And here I thought I was the only one out there who liked EDF well enough to consider making a wikia for it! Good to know that I am not alone. -- Somarinoa 23:52, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

Rule 2: No articles on individual weapons

Does this include pages for weapon classes, eg. edf 2025 - range - rockets --- and what about the different vehicle-types? Nobodx (talk) 17:29, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure either.JIGSAW 4 (talk) 23:00, March 16, 2014 (UTC)

I have been the primary contributor on this wiki for some time now, and as the major admin hasn't been around since October I would be the best person to answer this question. Weapon pages ought to be lists of the various subclasses of weapons, such as sniper rifles, plasma weapons, special, etc., with any classes that wield the same named (such as if two armor classes used items listed as "missiles", both would have their own separate subsection in the missiles page. At the same time, different weapons within these subclasses do not get their own pages - for instance, both the Rapiers and Lances for the Wing Diver class would be listed under... uh... whatever that subclass of weapons is called (Short Range or something like that, I am not anywhere near my console to double check).
Vehicles are all listed under the Vehicles article. Until 2025 there hasn't been a need for more in-depth articles, but I would say you could probably make smaller subsections for each specific vehicle type, like the Vegalta Gold (===Like this, of course===).
I would personally enjoy seeing some specific strategies for weapons seen, giving at least some weapons their own separate pages, but I am no admin. I do however plan on adding mentioned characters and maybe even weapon-making companies described as pages myself, with lists of their specific weapons here, whenever I get to town and buy myself a new computer. -- Somarinoa (talk) 01:05, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
I thought of something like a weapon class-page with a basic description of the weapon type (there are something around 30 in 2025) some basic strategies and maybe a (complete) list of all the weapons in this class. Nobodx (talk) 23:28, March 17, 2014 (UTC)

Cleaning Stuff

I'm rebuilding the Category-Pages -> every page with the EDF-Series-Template is automatically added to the Games and "PAGENAME"-Category (eg. the "Monster Attack"-Page is in "Games" and "Monster Attack" -- every Template-Page is added to the Templates-Category -- every playable class with the SoldierClasses-Template is added to the Classes-Category -- every Enemy with the Enemies-Template is added to the Enemies-Category Nobodx (talk) 01:09, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

--> Done, but i must clean up the old category-pages and move the corresponding pages to their new Category -- Nobodx (talk) 01:09, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
--> Added a Cleanup-Template that adds a infobox on pages and add them to the Marked for Removal-Category -- Nobodx (talk) 02:21, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

New EDF next year

Sort of .. EDF 4.1 was anounced on the Tokyo Game show for PS4 - an upgraded EDF2025 with additional Monsters and at least a new (giant) Mech - Nobodx (talk) 11:31, October 4, 2014 (UTC)


EDF 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair - TGS 2014 Game Trailer (PS4)-0

Oh, good god YES. ...assuming we get it here in North America. >.> -- Somarinoa (talk) 12:30, October 4, 2014 (UTC)
I hope they'll release it on the xBone as well ... don't want to buy a PS4 for a single game =X Nobodx (talk) 18:20, October 5, 2014 (UTC)
Man, I wish I had got the *coughcough720coughcoughsputter*. They announced all those cruddy security issues for the system and so I begrudgingly went and fully paid for a reservation on the PS4. Literally, the next day, they rescinded all of the things that they had stated which people had a problem with. I don't even know of any series on the PS series that probably still exist. I last touched a Sony console at the end of the PlayStation 2 era. XO -- Somarinoa (talk) 09:47, October 8, 2014 (UTC)
Imho the xbox360 was way better than the ps3 but i got one some days ago for a few bucks to play some of the exclusive games (eg. last of us). I guess it will be the same with the current gen consoles for me ;) -  Nobodx (talk) 16:44, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I boycotted the PS3 due to Sony's PS2 HDD fiasco that occurred, screwed a lot of people out of money. I swore I would buy it last out of that gen consoles, and I guess I technically did so since I have yet to buy one yet own the 360 and Wii haha. I really didn't like the trigger buttons on it though, they felt far too counterintuitive to me, folding in instead of just pulling back. Really, I should just spend this next paycheck on a 720 as well, since I have my permanent fund dividend as well lol... I already miss Halo. Even though there isn't a new one yet. -- Somarinoa (talk) 08:48, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Just found the longer trailer (With the new monster and the new mech)
