The term has gotten a lot more generalized over the past few years. Bro's have always been around, it's just that they never had a blanket term to cover the whole thing.

Now a days, a bro is a 16-28 year old male who usually indulges in fake tanning, iced hair, wears baseball caps to the side and considers wine coolers to be "a fine beverage". Keep in mind, not all bro's look like this, but that image seems to have become to poster child for the "bro" revolution.

Also, shit was so cash.

Well, this is certainly off-topic. So.. kinda been fooling around with Arkham Asylum a bit. It is quite fun. I am glad a good comic-book game is finally out there for the first time in many years. I hope to see indie comics maybe get into the 'video game arena.' Dredd's been through a few times but never properly. There's been one Hellboy game, too, and it's decent but nowhere near great. The Spawn games have been hit-and-miss, mostly miss. Ugh, Wanted. My dream is a Savage Dragon game, where you'll get to beat the sh*t out of all his baddies, maybe almost arcade-style. "Dragon, X badguy is on the streets, take him out." Maybe even a battle with Superpatriot or two.

I think the main issue with bad comic-book games is that video games suck when it comes to flight controls. There's no right answer in how to properly design flying controls, or at least for a flying individual. That's why no Superman game will ever be good.

Playing Uncharted: Drake versus the dozens of henchmen. When I'm done with that I'll jump back to either Batman or Brutal Legend.

I know it was simple, but I thought the way Marvel: Ultimate Alliance handled flight was adequate, at least for the team gameplay it presented. Maybe developers need to take a few cards from games like Ace Combat. The flying problem could also easily be solved by predisposing the flying characters. "Storm is... sick. Yeah, that's it, she's sick." This of course exposes the possible problem: DC's good-guy roster does indeed have non-flyers, but very few are flagship characters recognizable to the average Joe. You could have a really 'mindf*ck' Flash game with universe-switching and time travel, lol.

Batman doesn't fly! From what I understand he sits back and drinks coffee while viewing a monitor or screen of sorts.

Having achieved 100% completion on TWEwY, I've now started Dragon Age as a dwarf commoner. People be annoying. The available responses usually aren't adequate. Most of the time what I want to say is STFU followed by a whack with my sword. But I love my dog. His name is Pumpkin.
