A game about love. [updated]
There are no regrets about love. You can't buy love. But you can buy Iron Brigade.
Where there is love, there is always something to hate too. Here it is gfwl.
But love is bigger than hate. Iron Brigade is bigger than gfwl.
While this gem has it's flaws, it's a most enjoyable experience.
If you aren't burned by the hate of a thousand suns, when you
hear the acronym gfwl, you will find something unique here.
There are also a bunch of decent folks around the forums,
looking to form a merry suicidal squad for coop games.
Addendum: Concerning variety
With every battle you do, you'll gain experience, access to new equipment, different
weapons, which can be used in different variations, different chassis, depending on
your personal prefered playing style. There's always the possibility to make the
game harder on yourself, not every choice of loadout will work in every situation.
Like in every game that offers a variety of choices, the changing of patterns leads
to success. A boss that seemed to be near invincible is suddenly a piece of cake,
because of a change of strategy and tactics you deployed.
A mistake many people make, is just going for the dps, or a singular strategy.
Spamming towers and not upgrading them doesn't seem to die out too.
There are vast possibilities, choosing a heavy trench, only relying on turrets
for basic support, choosing an engineer trench, having lower turret prices,
supporting your high powered turrets with close range weaponry for example.
Or the assault trench, with a loadout, balanced between turrets and weapons.
You can decide if you'll go up front with close range weapons, rain down death
from a above with artillery, or be the designated sniper. Or choose speed legs
for your trench, and be a close combat artillery kamikaze trench. It's up to you.
You can go crazy in Iron Brigade, and still be successful, as Iron Brigade
embraces craziness. :-D
