Look, I don't know how to say this: someone has made an advergame for a movie and it feels... not awful? Not something made to fund other games its developers actually care about? Perhaps its creators' wildest dreams come true? I don't know what to make of this topsy-turvy world any more. See, Broforce is a game all about nostalgia for action movie heroes of…
