Skelly Selest looks like Enter the Gungeon by way of Devil Daggers

I'd never heard of developer Caiysware until today, when I happened to catch their latest game, Skelly Selest, in the Steam new releases page. It's an 8-bit bullet hell roguelike about dismembering ghouls in the pits of Hell, specifically in such scenic locales as the Bone Plains, Flesh Gardens, and Soul Necropolis. You can get it on Steam for $3 (or $2.24 if you buy before May 8), which looks like a bargain for the amount of game on offer. Apart from a standard dungeon-crawl mode where you unlo

Pato Box is a boxing game with a noir comic art-style where you’re a duck for some reason

A clever piece of misdirection at the beginning of Pato Box sums up the experience perfectly. Pato Box isn't going to be just a Punch-Out!! In Pato Box, you play an anthropomorphic boxing duck who must use his fists to defeat Deathflock, an evil corporation who lost you an important match and left you for dead. Despite being a fairly ridiculous premise for a game, the team behind Pato Box wanted to play the story straight. Pato Box also has some fantastic animations, which mirror the exaggerated

Scythe is a great board game, but the PC version needs sharpening

Scythe was one of the real standout board games of 2016, marrying a strong strategy game engine with Jakub Rozalski’s beautiful and fascinating world of 1920+ . It’s the kind of strategy game you can get wargamers and more abstract strategists to play, with an emphasis on not just map control and conflict, but also on strategic economics. The bones of tabletop Scythe are here in full. Right now, the best way to learn to play this version of Scythe is to read the tabletop rulebook. I can happily

X-Wing Miniatures Game 2nd edition is coming this fall

One of tabletop’s biggest miniatures games has a big shakeup today as Fantasy Flight Games announced a new edition that will tweak the core rules and add new force powers to the game’s pool of strategic options. The most major change to the game’s rules seems to be the addition of Force powers, allowing force-sensitive pilots to alter the battlefield with new abilities. Fantasy Flight Games also cites numerous refinements to the game’s “flow” aimed at “refocusing on the physical act of flying st

Ooblets developer update shows off adorable little houses and new characters

I'm starting to hope Ooblets, developer Glumberland's creature collecting farm sim (which Double Fine is publishing), comes with a glossary. In the new April developer update alone, we've got terms like followbabies, oobcoops, and some alien horror called 'taxes.' In the update, programmer and artist Rebecca Cordingley shares a critical oobcoop feature: you can peek inside and play with your followbabies. For less angry new characters, we've got Churles, the clothing designer and clothing shop o

Destiny 2 ‘Developer Insights’ video promises no nerf for Vigilance Wing

(As we can see in the video, it's also getting a swanky new ornament in the next season.) "We're going to see a lot more weapons that are capable of pulling off shenanigans the way that Vigilance Wing currently is," Hamrick says. The Warmind expansion will bring a lot of changes to Destiny 2 on both the PvP and PvE fronts, and I'm really looking forward to diving into it. And based on Reddit threads like this one, this is the direction that a lot of players want to go. Destiny 2: Warmind goes li
