    Does it really matter? the game is on Pc so why do you need it on 3ds?

    Though I do agree if people don't like it there is parental locks and stuff for that.

    Well that wouldn't be much use to me seeing I don't get out much but meh

    Also the fact that it would only be put on 3DS makes it less useful to me cause I don't have one nor plan to get one.

    Perfectly fine with my Ds Lite.

    I hate reading articles about this game on other gaming websites, simply because of the hate from the comments. Hasn't Edmund said himself somewhere that the game is not mocking religion, but referencing it? And then people have to go make claims about the game compared to the religious story, and interpret it all wrong.

    And, most importantly, why does this make me so mad?!

    I was very much looking forward to being able to play isaac on the go. Don't see why they couldn't just put a warning on it or something.

    It would have been a PR nightmare for Nintendo if someone got hold of the issue and refused to let go. There's room for misinformation.

    I don't blame them, but it's a shame.

    What you're gonna want to do is obtain spirit hearts and sacrifice all your heart containers as deals with the devil.

    That way you'll get a constant whore of babylon and a devil room item, at the cost of becoming a watered down blue baby.

    Also use blood donation machines to take your hearts away but keep your soul hearts intact.
    On the early levels, I like to intentionally not pick up soul hearts until I'm on the final room/boss, then damage myself down to 1/2 heart and pick them all up. That way I have 2 or 3 hearts with Whore of Babylon active

    Be absolutely sure you have at least 3 spirit hearts remaining when you do that or the deal you make with the devil will be fatal.

    After the deal is made, you can go below 3 spirit hearts no problem, but at the time of the "transaction", if you have too few, you will die. I believe this also holds true for blood donation machines, I haven't bothered to check.

    Wow, I just had my best moment as ??? AND easily one of the most fun runs I've ever had, even though there wasn't much I picked up.



    By the point I had the steam sale ticket, I knew this would be the run. I got all that stuff, finally got the D6 and Forget Me Now, got Spelunker Boy!    I'm SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS   , and got this kind of nice picture to boot.



    I'd say this run took me about 45 minutes. And it. Was. Worth. It.

    I wonder if it was Nintendo of America that decided that. Because I don't think japan would give a shit.

    There was a bunch of Christian imagery in some of the old Castlevania games that was present in the Japanese version, but got cut out in the American release... Which seems weird to me in the first place. It was just little graphical things, like crosses on gravestones.

    I bothered to check. It instead starts taking away your spirit hearts. A Bad Trip pill will not turn into a Full Health pill if you have more than 3 spirit hearts even if you have 1 half heart remaining.

    I found it by accident because I found a Bad Trip and I wanted to get a shitton of tries at a blood donation machine and then refill my health again (I had Money = Power, so I wanted to see if I couldn't get a nickle or two), but instead I got hurt. Rest assured, I was killed by 2 Greeds and a Fistula in the next room. I was so close to Satan's room too.

    Okay, how rare are Mom's Knife and encountering the Headless Horseman supposed to be? I had 3 runs in a row as Blue Baby, Isaac, and Eve where I got those two items and cleaned house, it's ridiculous

    I am really liking that loadout, it reminds me of jousting.

    I guess no automerge for me.

    I'm an Atheist and I play games with religious references all the time. I don't get angry over that. It makes the story deeper and more unique, not to mention entrenched with our culture. Why does making a religious reference (even if it's implying God's bad/non-existing, which Isaac isn't) determine how a game is? Hell, I played this the other day at my friend's house and I liked the little storyline to it.

    One thing I wonder is this; would a multiplayer version of Isaac be in any way fun and balanced, or would it be a clusterfuck? More to the point, would it even be possible, since I dunno if Flash has any real "online capabilities" to speak of.

    This has entered my mind so often. I don't see any real problems with a "co-op" mode, unless flash doesn't support it. a real simple co-op mode two. Like dead risings. Just two characters. Each player can select their own characters and items like in item rooms and boss rooms either drop twice or have two different drops (two different drops would be funner imo). Bosses would have slight buffs and youd both have to stay in the same rooms. Obviously wouldnt be fun for random online play but rather chaotic and fun with people you know, running to get the best items before the other person or trying to optmize eachothers load outs. I dunno, I just think itll be cool.

    I think 2 players co-op would work, but only if dungeons were a lot bigger, and each player was able to take his own path.

    Aye, that'd work. Being able to screw over your friends like that worked in Magicka, but then again you could easily revive one-another in that game, and I don't think easy revival would work in Binding of Isaac; maybe if your ally revived at the end of a boss fight, or if there was a rare spacebar item/pill/card that could bring them back, but otherwise an easy revive would probably make things a bit too easy.

    I like the pill/card idea, but after a boss fight would be too easy.
    Clearing the floor (ie: caves 1+2) would be much more fun imho

    I dunno, considering the type of game BoI is, and thinking about how co-op would work, I think co-op would be made to be a much easier, more chaotic mode, so I reckon reviving after each boss, perhaps with just a vanilla load out (would really fuck you up in anything past the caves) would be better than no revival at all.

    I wasn't bashing anyone in particular. All I'm saying is if all you're going to say about the game is that it's blasphemy, and not properly review it over gameplay, etc. then why would you post anything at all? All it does is serve as rage fuel. Sorry if I offended you, I didn't mean anything by it.

    So according to Edmund, if they go through with creating a version for Sony consoles, they'll do a full-rewrite in a different language like how Terry Cavanah rewrote VVVVVV in C++ instead of Flash.

    Neat.

    Makes sense; Flash isn't exactly a console kinda platform.

    Also, is there any more intel concerning Wrath of the Lamb? The Patches look like a new kind of passive that don't stack and can be swapped for different Patches, so they're probably powerful mechanic-changing items that work in different ways.

    What sick irony this came can bring. I picked up the Wafer on Basement 1 but I didn't get hit at all in the Womb and Sheol. A waste of an item, but at least I got the Mama's Boy achievement now.

    Sounds pretty ironic to me; you picked up an item that reduced the damage you took, but when you entered the truly dangerous places you didn't even need it. Helps you feel good about yourself at least, what with the whole not-getting hit thing an' all.

    Also, after Wrath of the Lamb comes out, and the developer calls it a job-well-done, what would come next from Ed McMillan?

    He said it would be both the console and pc versions that would get the rewrite. The console requires the rewrite, the pc version pretty much just gets optimized big time by shifting away from flash

    Something really strange just happened.

    The game literally gave me a heart container for no reason.

    I'm playing as Judas, who starts with 1 heart. As you can see I got a single health up item. Spawned in basement 2 with 3 hearts.

    What.
