Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out now and we kind of think this version of the turtles has a dirty little secret.

We’re talkin’ ’bout steroids everybody.

Broforce – The Expendabros Launch Trailer (The Expendables 3)
The Expendabros have assembled and set their sights on the forces of ruthless arms dealer Conrad Stonebanks in the forests of Eastern Europe. Battle in a flurry of bullets and non-stop action through ten full-throttle missions set amongst the picturesque tree tops and the absurdly dangerous lumber mills teeming with enemy soldiers, excessive artillery, and inconveniently placed circular saws. Rescue your brothers in arms and play as seven different legendary soldiers – each with their own unique weapons and special attacks – with up to four players at once in local multiplayer co-op mode.
The Expendabros was created by Broforce developer Free Lives in partnership with The Expendables 3 and will be available for download until December 31, 2014.
