Welcome back to the Weekly Co-op!
Competitive local multiplayer not your thing? That’s okay! Every week there will be one game focusing on beating your friends, and one focusing on working with your friends!
This week’s Co-op game will be Broforce!
Player count: 1-4
Platform: PC, PS4
Do you love classic 70s/80s action stars? Do you love awesome rock music? How about gratuitous gore? Well this is the game for you! Borforce is a crazy, fast-paced 2-D side scroller meant to test the bonds of anyone who plays it.
Broforce is all about killing stuff with cool action heroes to get to the end of the map. From parody characters of The Terminator to Indiana Jones, this game has all the different kinds of actions heroes you can think of. All of the characters have ‘bro’ somewhere in the name , and the game really tries to emphasize that. Shoot, explode, and slash your way through each level so you can progress all the way to hell where you and your bros get to kill the devil.

The reason this game tests the relationships of anyone who plays it is because this is not an easy game. Each player can only get hit once before they die, and you can only respawn if you freed other bros somewhere on the map. Otherwise, you have to go back to a checkpoint every time you die, and the checkpoints become less and less forgiving the farther into the game you go.
While it is a hard game, this game is loads of fun. Goofy deaths, lots of communication, and plenty of ‘MERICA to go around, this game is wild, and I love it.
That’s all for this week! I’ll be back soon with more recommendations! Have a great week!
