Blazing Beaks is Out Now and Looks Like Nuclear Throne With Birds

Blazing Beaks is the latest roguelite for Nintendo Switch and PC. At first glance, the game looks a lot like Nuclear Throne or Enter the Gungeon. However, developer Applava has added a few things to switch it up. Check out the Switch launch trailer below.

Blazing Beaks is a game of volatile mayhem as you try to shoot your way through an onslaught of enemies. The game sets its focus squarely on local multiplayer, offering both cooperative and competitive modes for players to enjoy.

The game supports two players in a cooperative story mode. This sees you and a buddy fighting off an endless horde of enemies as you try to discover the “origin of evil”. You’ll pick up new guns and risk grabbing game-changing artefacts that will improve some of your abilities while hindering others. Finding that perfect build will be a challenge, especially when you and friend both take a liking to the same weapons.

Blazing Beaks also has a tournament mode that supports up to four players locally. This is the competitive mode and gives players a number of different ways to test their skills against each other. The game features standard Deathmatch but also changes it up with a host of various game types. You can play Hunting mode where each player only has a throwable spear to fight with or One Gun mode where you all start with the same randomly chosen weapon each round. And those are just two of the many options at your disposal. It can quickly get gleefully chaotic, which should make it a hit in the right circles.

Blazing Beaks is out now for Nintendo Switch and PC. Grab a friend or three and get busy dying.

Enter the Gungeon Last Update Adds Mode and Lets You Pet the Dog

The Enter the Gungeon unique brand of bullet hell shooting might be finishing up its post-launch updates, but it is going out with a bang. Developer Dodge Roll and publisher Devolver Digital released their final content update, “Farewell to Arms” and it is an explosive way to end an indie darling’s life.

The update packs quite the punch of new features and gameplay improvements. Obviously, they’re bringing out a number of new guns and items. The new synergies these bring should keep players busy for quite a while.

Dodge Roll has also added two new playable characters and a new secret floor with a new boss. They’ve also given players Rainbow Mode. This community-inspired mode sees you start each floor with a Rainbow chest. You can take one item from the chest and that is your only source for items during your entire run. Every other chest is locked off by an NPC named Bowler.

Veteran players are likely happy to see that Dodge Roll has increased the DPS cap on bosses slightly. Previously, if you had a gun synergy that could chunk a boss down quickly, the game wouldn’t let you. A synergy that could knock off 50% of the bosses health in a short burst would be capped to something like 5%, inflating the bosses difficulty. Now that cap is raised and your OP combo will more appropriately shred Enter the Gungeon’s bosses.

The most important addition though? You can finally pet the dog!

Enter the Gungeon and its “Farewell to Arms” update is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. If you were hoping to jump in, you can grab the game now on Amazon.

Enter the Gungeon Pays Homage to Metroid With Updated Weapon

With the release of Enter the Gungeon‘s new Advanced Gungeons & Draguns update right around the corner, developer Dodge Roll Games took to Twitter to show off a sneak preview of one of the game’s updated weapons. Fans of a certain space bounty hunter may find this weapon familiar, as the updated weapon pays homage to Metroid‘s Samus Aran.

Aptly titled The Heroine, the weapon showed off in Dodge Roll Games’ Twitter post is not entirely new to Enter the Gungeon. Described by the game’s Ammonomicon as “the arm of a famous bounty hunter,” The Heroine was available in earlier versions of Enter the Gungeon, however, its previous incarnation didn’t include the Plasma Beam, Wave Beam, or Ice Beam.

New weapons are just one of the additions that Dodge Roll has promised with its upcoming Advanced Gungeons & Draguns update. The developer stated that the forthcoming update will also include new items, enemies, synergies, rooms, and more.

As Metroid Prime 4 was notoriously absent from Nintendo’s E3 Direct, Enter the Gungeon‘s forthcoming update seems to be the only way players will be able to use Samus’ arm cannon for the foreseeable future. For those interested in a tough roguelike with a loveable cast of characters, Enter the Gungeon is now available on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. The game’s Advanced Gungeons & Draguns update is scheduled to be released on July 19th.

Developer Dodge Roll took to Twitter to announce that their bullet hell title Enter the Gungeon has sold over 75,000 copies in two weeks on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

It’s great to hear another indie success story on the Nintendo Switch, especially considering Enter the Gungeon is an excellent title as well. I was disappointed that it never made its way onto the PS Vita back when it first released in 2016 on the PS4.

If you’re not familiar with the gameit’s an overhead roguelike bullet hell shooter where you play as one of four characters, each with their own unique abilities, as they descend into the Gungeon.The title borrows a lot of mechanics that have been around for some time while incorporating its own blend of different weapons, bosses, and aesthetically pleasing areas to explore. Not to mention it can be pretty brutal at times so players looking for a challenge should have a lot of fun. There’s also a ton of things to find and do in Enter the Gungeon so players will have plenty of reasons to go back and find check every nook and cranny.

Enter the Gungeon is available right now on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux.
