Broforce comes to Steam with first female bro

How much do you even lift?

Macho 80s-inspired shooter Broforce is now doing chin-ups and bench presses on Steam, as developer Free Lives had made the game available as part of the Steam Early Access program.

The full version of the game is due to be released in summer for PC and console, with the latest update--going live with the Steam Early Access release--including Ripbro, the first female bro in the game. There's also a sweet new backflip move, incendiary poultry, and 'hot brotato' grenade throwing.

Broforce is a co-op shooter where you play as various supermacho Bros, each modelled after an action hero star. My favourite is Brobocop.

The game is available for $15/£11.99.

As part of the update, publisher Devolver Digital released a new trailer for Broforce:

Ripley from the later Alien films? XD

I think that the game's creators should have picked a parody of Charlie's Angels instead.

Or one of the dudettes from the later Contra games.

Thank god for feminists, that's all I gotta say. Obviously the devs were woman haters, but they fixed it now, so it's ok.

Who is Ripbro then? Im guessing its Sigourney Weaver (Ripley)?

What would you call a female bro? A bra, I guess.

So Expendables the video game?  Could be interesting.

@bluefox755 they don't hate women, they hate feminine crap, and off hand Ripley is the only one I can think of that is badass enough to be in the game.

@Butt_Chunx You're an embarrassment to the universe. Go make your own game and play the same as how you will die, which is alone.

@MattPeters @Butt_Chunx Your face is an embarrassment to the multiverse. I won't die alone but I am sure that a sexist man-pig scum douchebag like yourself will.

"How does Anita's c*ck taste?"

Comments like yours are why Anita Sarkesian does what she does. Nice job.

I don't have to justify my views like equality for women as I am on the good side but since you are the one spouting hate, I think it is you that needs to explain your statements or be called a sexist and don't just spew the same old meaningless complaints about her kickstarter campaign or videos. People can donate to whatever cause they want and Anita's videos were informative and well made with NO hateful remarks towards men.


If you hate Anita Sarkeesian or what she does then you must be a sexist, there is no other reasonable explanation. I will put it another way, if you were against Martin Luther King Jr. or the civil rights movement then you must be a racist.

@john_matrix_007 And what exactly does she do? Steals artwork and Let's Play footage. Refuse to engage anyone in a thoughtful discussion on what she says. Refuse to say what she actually spent the $160k on. Publicly endorse fanfics where she tortures and kills Randy Pitchford. Promise to have her 15-part series done by the end of 2012 and only release 4 videos 2 years after the fact. Have insufferable tumblrettes and beta white knights like yourself come to her aid by any means while completely ignoring everything I just listed. She claims to be about equality but all she has done is bitterly divided the gaming community even further. 


But then again, I'll just be dismissed as a sexist pig. Because that's all you people can do when you don't have anything to say to the contrary. Have fun not playing potentially games because Saint Sarkeesian told you not to.

@Butt_Chunx @dkunitSure, dismiss me as a sexist. That's all you people can do when you can't justify your stance. Have fun worshiping Saint Sarkeesian.
