Publishers worldwide take note, bros can be discerning customers. They showed enough class and social refinement to stay away from BMX XXX, Acclaim’s attempt at hawking a sub-par extreme sports title by way of breasts and boner jokes. OK, maybe we’re giving bros a little too much credit here, all the “avoid this game” warning signs were there. First, putting multiple X’s in a title to signify edginess is never a good sign. Second, when the celebrity endorser sues to have his name removed, in this case Mr. Dave Mirra, you’ve probably made a misstep.
Also, are bros really that into extreme sports? Sure they like Monster energy drinks and yelling, but helmets? Ramps? Riding bikes? Sounds like a sure fire way to mess up your neatly spiked frosted tips, bro.
Bro-tastrophe we dodged: Rude and crude versions of every extreme sports fad. Sexy wakeboarding, naked hang gliding, and SSX XXX.
