Hey guys, it's been a while since I've last logged on and I will say this: I'm not really an avid Smasher, but I am an avid Gamer! That's right everyone; Regi is back with yet another strange game recommendation. Prepare to expand that little gaming library!
The strangest mixes for gaming usually come into the gaming universes and well, sometimes they work, sometimes they need a little tweak, sometimes they just don't mix well despite the effort, or the worst case scenario? They flat out suck.
So rogue likes for me are rather addicting, but I've never in my life have tried my hand at the bullet hell genre unless it's Undertale. Undertale's bullet hell is adorable and brisk in the pacifists route, but if you choose to, I dunno, be a dick to all the monsters and innocents in the game, then there are maybe one or two toughies which definitely undermine the cheerful, and somewhat easy gameplay people are so used to.
Aside the point, I introduce you a risky hybrid that, in my eyes, took me by storm. Get it? In my eyes? Okay, I'll stop now.

Enter the Gungeon is a rough-and-tough rouge and bullet hell hybrid that futures, you guessed it! Guns, Bullets, Guns, Bullets, and Guns, and also Bullets.
Each character in this little "gungeon" is cleverly named a "gungeoneer" in search of the gungeon's greatest and most powerful treasure... The gun that can kill the past. And they'll do anything to have another shot!
The Pilot, the Marine, the Hunter, the Convict. Each of these gungeoneers, though some noble, and perhaps undignified, have special quirks and attributes that give them a unique advantage against the gungeon's ever evolving layout.
The Pilot can earn free loot with his not-so-trusty lockpick and carry an extra active item for the journey and some additional overall ammo for the guns he gains upon pickup.
The Marine is a great beginner gungeoneer, blessed with better accuracy and faster reload as well as a starting armor piece, which is a boon needless to say.
The Hunter has a little puppy that has an extra chance to dig up additional goodies upon clearing a room and comes equipped with a cross bow, and it's your friend (trust me).
The Convict has an interesting ability to deal additional damage when you take damage, and comes with an extra fire arm as well as molotov, making her an offensive menace among the walls of the gungeon.
The Gungeon within the player's first attempts will be basically learning how all the enemies and the gungeon itself operates.
Along the way, all gungeoneers will find NPC's that can sell you unlockable guns and items that will give you an edge in the future endeavors. Not only that, they also appear in future runs when rescued, selling some sought out goodies that are huge blessing. Better be prepared, as unlocking most items will require Hegemony credits, which are gained by defeating bosses, while other guns will be unlocked by fulfilling specific request.
Ox and Cadence never appear in the Gungeon onward after rescuing them and will instead offer some notable guns and gadgets for a better survival rate. You'll need all you can get.
What I really love about the game itself is it's plethora of writing for each and every single gun in game. Not only that, there are so many references to all the incredible series of games and pop culture we all know and love. Trust me, there are so many different references in this game. It's disgusting how much pop culture is in the gungeon itself. The writing is humorous, and with so many guns and items in game, it's recommended you always check out your additional equipment in the Ammonomicon. You'll get a massive laugh, as I know I did. And the game has so many puns. Ah, and if you don't know me by now... I love puns. <3
This simple little book will always keep tabs of all the guns. And within much to say, perhaps you know what reference this gun holds?
All in all, think you can best all the secrets of the gungeon. Gotta keep trying right?
Fuck your sass Gungeon.
