So Broforce looks great. Shooting, killing, pixel art, tons of bad-ass characters to play as. What's not to love? Honestly the game looks really awesome and I want to pick it up, I just have this new aversion to games on Steam Greenlight. That said, I played a few minutes of Broforce at a friends house and it was fun for the few minutes I played. My friend mentioned that the game needed more Bros as well as levels which fits a common complaint on Steam in the game is too short. This update adds 3 new bros as well as new game mechanics, levels and an update to Indiana Brones. Oh and the new mech? Awesome.

I'll echo your new aversion. Greenlight and Early Access are showing their flaws lately.

More to the point, this game looks awesome. Like Metal Slug with more action and worse/better graphics. Depending on how you feel about graphics.

I really like the Broforce graphics quite a bit. People said they need an update but I don't see it, I like the chunky pixels.

Travis   Admin   Member wrote on 05/31/2014 at 05:04am

I agree. I think it's charming as hell. Which may be an odd adjective to use with this kind of game, but there you go.

jdodson   Admin   Member   Post Author wrote on 05/31/2014 at 04:51pm

Yeah, that sounds right. I wonder what the people that don't like the graphics would replace them with?

Travis   Admin   Member wrote on 06/01/2014 at 03:45am

Gritty, brown realism?

jdodson   Admin   Member   Post Author wrote on 06/01/2014 at 05:47am

Huh. I think the comical nature and simplicity of the graphics plays into the bro-nature of the game.

But yeah, more realistic and gritty would be pretty interesting!

Travis   Admin   Member wrote on 06/01/2014 at 05:55am

I mean I don't agree with wanting gritty, brown realism. I was making a tongue-in-cheek jab at the modern realistic shooters.

Hahaha yeah. That genre is pretty well served.

What are the flaws with greenlight and early access?

jdodson   Admin   Member   Post Author wrote on 06/03/2014 at 09:36pm

Basically that the game I bought is really disappointing. Some games are so bad it's frankly disturbing they want to sell it. Some are just at the state where you get a bad dose of what the promise of the game is.

When I started with early access I thought it was a bunch of games mostly finished with some cleanup to do. Yeah, not really.

jdodson   Admin   Member   Post Author wrote on 06/03/2014 at 09:36pm

So it's cool it exists for the people that love it, but I haven't bought an early access game since a few big dissapointments I had.
