Lamp: Okay, basically everyone focuses on the fact that the story is about a pair of alien bugs that ask two intrepid and super-lame Japanese kids to help them battle a colony of evil bugs for control of their planet which is populated by similar bugs to our world except that THOSE bugs have cannons and guns and metal carapaces and OUR bugs are just bugs and never propose galactic warfare at all, at least not in my experience. My argument is that worrying about things like plot and character in a SRPG is basically retarded on the same level that the characters in this game appear to be. Like any great strategy game, Drone Tactics has a simple premise that belies a lot of flexibility and complexity. There are a wide variety of units and the game offers tremendous levels of customization. Any map can be replayed with a different army for an entirely new challenge and the game allows the player to choose how easy or difficult the battles should be.

And if none of that seems cool, just think about the giant mecha insects machine-gunning each other.
