You ready bro? Broforce, probably my all time favourite platformer (yes really) is now available DRM free on GOG.

I was actually writing this up the other day, until I realised it was Windows only. Shortly after the Linux version was put up, so that's awesome news.

It has a mixture of brutal destruction, even more brutal deaths, tons of playable characters that each behave differently with their weapons and it's just amazing.

One not to miss. I don't often get to 100% games, but I totally did with Broforce.

Find Broforce on GOG now. It's also on a cracking sale. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Hey Liam,

Thanks for the write-up Sorry about the delay with the Linux version but rest assured, we did not want to delay it but we wanted to make sure everyone would get a good and playable game in their hands

GOG is really trying to empty everyone's wallet before Steam. I like this competition.

Sadly I've actually held off buying some things because of convenience: I prefer DRM-free, but GOG hasn't released Galaxy for GNU/Linux. Real competition might start (for GNU/Linux) if GOG would actually do that.

I do have to echo this, it's one reason I've been looking at itch a lot more recently, their client is really slick and it's getting a major update soon too. Still, the itch client won't be at the level of GOG Galaxy when it releases I'm sure.

No worries, I do appreciate that GOG make sure the Linux releases actually work properly, it's a major point in the stores favour.

Agreed. The primary benefit of Steam is that it updates my games and manages installing them all from one centralized location.

This is why I keep paying into Steam, plus their Linux support obviously.

If Gog got their Gog Galaxy client rolling I might register a gog account.

Origin on the other hand, there's no way in hell I'm investing into their abusive content distribution, after loosing $120 to Star Wars The Old Republic Online only to be hassled for a credit card and $20 for first month to get 30 days free - EA can rot in hell.

Eh, I'm still buying games from GOG first despite the Galaxy delay. I value DRM-free way above convenience.

I already picked up my DRM free copy from Humble Store but it's still awesome to see it on GOG.

Well, I don't buy the game at all if it's not also convenient for me to do so. With everyone relying on digital distribution to add features, patches, stability, etc, some form of management is pretty important (to me), and GOG are failing GNU/Linux users in that regard. I would otherwise buy from GOG where possible.

Have they fixed the horrid sync issues when playing alongside somebody on Windows? We kept seeing completely different game with enemies that are long dead for one still out there killing the other and other fun stuff like that.

It made the game pretty much pointless for me.
