We're less than a week away from the alien insect carnage of Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In order to best prepare, be sure to consult this handy field guide to see what killer bugs you'll need to kill dead.

Vicious Cycle Software and D3Publisher unleash Insect Armageddon on July 5, just as those of us in the U.S.A. are recovering from celebrating our independence from other governments in favor of dependence on our own. Seems like the perfect time for a horde of alien insects and arachnids to me. Are you prepared?
