I'm not sure how I managed to miss this, but there's a new game coming out soon which I think I may want. Mongoose Publishing's Flaming Cobra imprint presents Cthulhutech.

From the webpage:

2085. Humanity faces extinction. Alien insects from the edge of our solar system, long hidden behind the façade of reality, descend to enslave us. Hordes of unspeakable horrors roll out from Central Asia, laying waste to anything in their path. The church of the fish-god scours the world for lost occult secrets to unleash terrible forces. Dead gods awaken and turn their dreadful eyes toward the Earth. And within hides a cancer, eating away at the very heart of the New Earth Government.

This is the Aeon War. This is the time of CthulhuTech.

Climb inside a thirty-foot tall war machine and rain down hell on the unwavering Migou. Fight tooth and nail on the front lines against the horrific beasts of the Rapine Storm. Seek out the disgusting corruption of the insidious Esoteric Order of Dagon. Explore the dark world of the malignant Chrysalis Corporation and their unseen monstrous agents. Sift through secrets long thought lost and bend the power of the cosmos to your will. Join in symbiosis with something beyond time and space and become a shape-shifting bringer of wrath.

I'm a fan of fusion settings at the worst of times, and something that combines Neon Genesis Evangelion style mecha and Cthulhuoid monstrosities simply cannot go wrong.

As an aside, the NGE re-imagining Children of an Elder God, similarly themed, is well worth a look.
