Action Henk!

    Okay for real this is the first time in a long time that all three games are great choices. If you’re looking trying to figure out what to vote for just pick two random ones cause these are all amazing games.

    My vote is for Broforce. I put countless hours into Broforce when it was still free on PC in around August of 2013. It is an incredible game and would be great to have on my PS4 to play with my Bros on the weekends.

    I like that playstation is giving away free games every month but they haven’t had any real good free games in a really long time, I guess it depends on what you think is good.

    whiteytokens said:

    February 22nd, 10:54 pm

    Broforce was a very bad pick and it wasn’t that great on steam either. There is an over abundance of side scrollers on ps4. This is 2016 not 1987 ok. I bet anyone that more people will buy the other two picks than play broforce once they tried it free. Same thing happened with grow home. Terrible game yet people voted for it like crazy.

T3DV0L70L1N4 said:

Broforce looks like the only slightly entertaining game in the bunch.

Freedom! USA! USA!

    FeistFan said:

    February 9th, 11:37 am

    It cracks me up that all the “USA!” and “AMERICA!” posts in this thread in support of Broforce are, in fact, supporting a South African company.

    I think it’s mildly interesting that all three games are from non-US companies. Don’t misunderstand – I have nothing against companies from anywhere in the world, and wish all three of these companies the best. The “chanting” just cracks me up.

    I’m probably voting for Assault Android Cactus, but I hope to enjoy whichever of these three we end up with. I do hope there’s a nice AAA title to go with them, though. Probably too much to hope for, but….

    podcast_lover said:

    February 9th, 3:39 pm

    My post was a joke, just like the humor of the game. I am also voting for AAC, because I am slightly interested in the game. I am getting Broforce (paid or ps plus) when it drops.

    WolfyHopeless said:

    February 22nd, 12:38 pm

    That WOULD be an astute observation, Feist, if the game itself wasn’t over saturated in satirical “MURICA!!” humor.

HollowPointSnipe said:

February 9th, 8:55 am

I’d rather have BROFORCE for free compared to these other games plus the game has local multiplayer as well which is a win in my books. AMERICA F***K YEAH! COMING IN TO SAVE THE MOTHERF**KING DAY YEAH! AMERICAAAA F**K YEAH! LOL

    Conall-Star said:

reson8er said:

February 9th, 8:59 am

I’m having a internal debate as to which I’m going to vote for between AAC & Bro Force. The debate is really which one I think will cost more since I’m going to get both regardless.

    ps_psychedelic said:

    February 9th, 9:50 pm

    Yup, same here. Though choice. But won’t they both be probably $19.99 at the end?
    In any case I may swing to which game would I gladly spend my money on, then get the other “free”, in which case I’d definitely buy Broforce.

sofakingkiller said:

February 9th, 8:59 am

i wish assault android cactus had online coop instead of the shareplay mode they mentioned, Broforce’s online coop is hard to beat.

KidCommando said:

February 9th, 8:59 am

Assault Android Cactus!!

Broforce reminds me too much of Mercenary Kings

Action Henk! reminds me too much of Joe Danger

I’m Voting for Assault Android Cactus because twin stick shooters are my jam, jelly, peanuts, and peanut butter.


February 9th, 9:02 am

Action Henk definitely looks like a good one.

sNsKid said:

February 9th, 9:03 am

How many people actually played Grow Home for more than 5 mins? Broforce is Grow Home Part 2.

Vote Assault Android Cactus!!

    Fin1drful said:

    February 9th, 9:45 am

    Grow home was absolute garbage!!!! Bro force is coop Gold!!! Please for the love of god don’t vote for anything else. Do your research people we definitely do not want another grow home.

Action henk looks like something I will be bored after 30 min. Broforce or assault android cactus looks much more entertaining than some time attack game.

Just saw videos for the 3 games and Assault Android Cactus looks so much fun. Twin stick shooters all the way :D

ChadPBererra said:

February 9th, 9:59 am

Cactus for me: I’ve heard so many awesome things about it.

I have Broforce on PC (I pre-ordered it, even!) but I didn’t really enjoy it after the first ten minutes of, “heh, that’s funny, good reference”: found the gameplay to be somewhat lacking.

    Alecj22 said:

    February 9th, 12:34 pm

    Thats the game in a nutshell.

    Its 10 minutes of “ha…i get that reference”. Then thats it.

    I see a lot of people praising it, but i bet most never spent more than a few minutes with it. I was bored very quickly.

    The gameplay is ok, i guess. I dealt with it to see the references, but its not deep or interesting.

    Plus Broforce has been around forever. I was playing it free, online, years ago.

    It will be another vote won by name recognition, and not gameplay.

    I really hate these votes.

veryhoudini11 said:

February 9th, 10:08 am

Downwell was announced by devolver digital to be coming to ps4 and vita so im gonna show them some love and vote for broforce. No matter who lll be picking up these games anyways. Cactus and broforce look amazing.

Mando44646 said:

gotta say, not interested even remotely in any of those. I’d kill to have a strategy title like Armello though

MauCamper said:

People that never played Broforce, please go watch some gameplay of it. You can play as Stalone, Chuck Norris, Will Smith, Snake, Blade and a lot more. It’s couch co-op is of the best that I played in the last years.

Vote for BroForce We need more Multiplayer friendly games besides it got the highest score from Meteoritic out of all the rest, 82/100 Critics, & 8.2/10 from players, the rest got Lower Scores. Be Smart gamers. Lets Go Rambo Together get to the Chopper Bro.

    VIDEOgameDROME said:

    February 10th, 12:34 am

    Agreed. It’s going to be a multiplayer/co-op game so we can actually put our PS+ to use! We can all dole out democracy with bullets together!

O1Kipper said:

Broforce is a very fun game (even though I don’t normally like the genre) and will get my vote for sure! GET TO THE CHOPPA :D!!

Alecj22 said:

February 9th, 12:26 pm

I cant believe we are doing this again.

These votes are dominated by the game with the most name recognition, regardless of quality, release details, or reviews

Im calling it now–

Broforce wins….betcha a million bucks.

Its been out forever on PC and the only one people have heard of….

I mean, its fun for about 10 minutes and you probably can still play it for free online somewhere, but we will waste a PS+ game on it.

I despise these votes.

    ps_psychedelic said:

    February 9th, 9:54 pm

    I’ve never heard of any of those before. And actually the gameplay as shown here is the only one I’ve seen so far.
    Obviously the Broforce video wins hands down but it actually looks kinda cool. I usually despise 2D games on the PS4 but this one looks fun.
    Now, AAC seems pretty decent too.
    Too bad no info on platinums.
    Also Broforce from what I read in the comments sports ONLINE co-op which I’m all down for. In this age the only co-op I play is FIFA when I have a friend over who doesn’t play games at all the rest well, we play online from our places.
