'Tis the season to be jolly!
Regardless of Typhoon Nona (who rudely decided to crash for a while in the Philippines), I still believe we have reason to stay positive. So far, things are still quite calm and everybody is hoping it'll stay that way until it leaves the PAR (soon, I hope). My internet is "turbulent", and I'm desperately trying to get back to work and all. But still. Let's me joyful! Think positive! Pray! Relax!
Speaking of relaxing, I've been playing the Steam release of Pewdiepie's
"Legend of the Brofist" on co-op with my brother, and we've been having too much fun with it. Too much. The iOS version (priced $4.99) was great, but it had no co-op mode and I'm not really comfortable playing on a small screen, so the Steam version was a real treat.
As my first Steam purchase (I usually just play F2P's and free games on there), I feel like I was under an obligation to enjoy this game. Thankfully, I didn't have to force myself at all.
I LOVE THE GAME! I'd been waiting for a new release on a different platform since the original iOS version came out, and watching Pewdiepie and other Youtubers play the game got me all hyped for a PC/Mac release. It's just SO fun! It's one of those rare games that I wouldn't mind raging over ('cause of me dying a lot and being stupid in-game) and doing over and over again.
With co-op mode available, you can use two controllers or have one use the keyboard instead. Using the controller is easier for me though, but my brother says it's easier on the keyboard. It really doesn't matter as long as I get to play. Haha.
More stills for you, 'cause you know, I couldn't take enough. ;)
Like I said, I love the co-op feature on this release as I get to play with my brother (who's also a fan of all the Youtubers mentioned in the game). It took me a while to memorize certain buttons (uhuh, definitely slow) but that's just me. The games quite easy to play with someone else, but solo? I tried playing on the hard level and I was a noob. Pretty embarrassing for an FPS gamer like myself. I should be used to arcade games by now. (I played as Pewdie and my brother played as Markiplier. Above screenshot shows my brother has died two times already. No worries, I probably died more times than he did.)
Anyway, I'm really excited for the updates they'll be rolling out (hopefully soon!). The Christmas and Halloween maps were pretty cool as well and I can't wait to play more. I especially loved their Halloween costumes. Haha! Pewdie-chan! :D
Of course, a Pewdiepie game wouldn't be complete without Stefano, Jennifer, Shannen, and FalconLover.
Regardless of whether you're a fan or not of any of these Youtubers, the gameplay itself is really great. There's still room for improvement with the controls and the actual physics of the game, but it's too early to complain. The game IS new, so I doubt the developers will stop working on this any time soon. I just hope the next updates are free, though I wouldn't mind otherwise. I support games like these, especially if it involves people I like.
Apologies if this post is a bit all over the place - the Typhoon's getting stronger by the hour and I'm thinking about the internet stability and current, among other things.
If you haven't purchased Pewdiepie: Legend of the Brofist yet, I highly recommend it for people who just want to play pixel games, who are a fan of it, or those who just want something to play with. It's really cheap, so it's not a big deal if for some reason you realize it's not for you.
