Everybody's favorite rogue-like bullet hell that makes you want to stick your fist through the screen faster than a Saturn V, now has its own thread!



Me and a couple of guys from the Gaming thread were talking and figured we'd try this out. Have one place to share strategies, screen shots, brag about how far we've gotten, cry about how hard this game is, and just in general talk about Isaac.

For those of you who don't know, it's basically Zelda from hell, with a naked little boy trying to escape from his psychotic mother who is trying to kill -- ahhh, forget it, just watch this.

I hate the greed heads, who steal your money and have stupid ammounts of HP

Greed heads are the bane of my existance.

A room with a shitload of them and those stupid hanging guys with those stupid invincible flies = a seriously bad time.

Best game. Don't think that I've ever rage quit though - maybe because I don't have the temperament of a five year old gamer.

Worst thing I've encountered. Had Dr. Fetus. Had Mr. Mega. Got into a room with Super Pride. Couldn't hurt him.

I used to love this game and play it constantly but now whenever I play it I always get really bored by the time I hit depths/womb 1. I've played it too much haha. Still a fantastic game though.

Glad to see the sex king getting some action I think it might be time for me to pull him out again tonight and take him for a spin around the rift.

Question. Do I need a mouse to play this game? I only use a laptop with the stock pad and I was wondering if that would hinder my gaming experience.

Only thing that the mouse is useful for is Epic Fetus. Other than that, gamepad always and forever.

This is the game that made me stop playing Dark Souls. I think you'll like it.

By the way, it looks so weird to see you not blue. It's like you're bald.




I think im going to check this game out.

I don't consider this game a bullet hell game by any means. I mean if a Touhou game is bullet hell, how is this? Regardless though, I do love this game and when I finished Wrath of the Lamb had all of the achievements besides one due to a bug in the game.

*double-take* Say WHAT? Did you at least get Platinum God?

I wouldn't know how else to describe it other than bullet hell. You run around, dodging projectiles and lasers and monsters, and sometimes you have SO MUCH SHIT coming at you it takes damned good reflexes to dodge it all.

People still play this game?

Yup. A LOT.
#24
I love this game so much. Made it through Mom's Heart 3 times so far, one of which landed me in Sheol (which I managed to survive).
#25
I got this game in one of the Indie Bundles a while ago and have yet to play that.

Oh well, playing Earthbound right now and Animal Crossing is in the mail. No time.

Fast approaching the 70 hour mark for this badboy! Finally beat "secret" boss and Satan yesterday!

Greed heads are the worst, but the big green dude from Ultra-Pride is a pain as well - for such a big dude he's got a tiny hitbox.

Worst boss for me is the Headless Horseman - I always seem to encounter him really early on before I've had a chance to power up

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

I really like this game but I unfortunately suck at all video games.
I have never made it past 3 bosses in one play-through.

How the heck do I get better at Isaac?

(thread needs poll for favorite playable character btw)


Honestly? Grind.

Once you learn what all the items/trinkets/tarot cards do, and how the enemies move and attack, it becomes easier. Still hard, but doable.

You could always keep the wiki open in the background to check what tarot cards do what as well I suppose.

It also becomes more enjoyable the more items that you unlock.

Yeah, you get it after completing the game 6 times times.

Your reward? It makes the game harder.



Thanks, Team Meat.

Team Meat.

Team Meat is Ed and Tommy Refenes, who work on things as a team. Ed basically made and designed everything in Binding of Isaac by himself, and hired a programmer to code it for him.
#39
I just think Ed McMillen = Team Meat. It's easy to forget it's not actually Team Meat as well, given all the references to SMB!

I still remember when Ed was a lowly little animator bumming around on Newgrounds.
