[QUOTE=bunnyspy1;35059400]how about a spacebar item that spawns a clone that the enemies attack but the clone does no damage and only has the equivalent of two hearts[/QUOTE] Edmund did say that he had added a bunch of items that trade hearts for upgrades. The move Substitute from the Pokemon series sounds exactly like how an item like that would work: deal self-damage and you spawn a dummy that enemies will attack instead of you. I would imagine that passive upgrades are passed onto the dummy as well. Imagine spawning a dummy with Poison Touch only for all the baddies to go suck on some DoT :v: [editline]asdfsdf[/editline] Also I [url=http://www.formspring.me/EdmundM/q/302345963979158078]asked Edmund[/url] about that on his formspring. He said he added one like that, nice prediction.
holy shit, had two bs playthroughs in one sitting killed the devil with Cain, unlocking ??? then going through again with ??? killing the devil once more
Just beat mom for the first time. Now. Let's do it again.
I recently found out a good combination of items that would usually be considered "crappy" or "decent" my reflection + the parasite works pretty well, I've killed mom's heart and satan with that combo
My reflection + Tammy's Head= Amazing It clears almost any room of enemies, and it takes 1 room to recharge.
[QUOTE=iLife_Aftermath;35067575]My reflection + Tammy's Head= Amazing It clears almost any room of enemies, and it takes 1 room to recharge.[/QUOTE] If you pair it with piercing shots and spectral tears, there's nothing that can avoid the shots unless you just flat-out miss.
add a parasite, and every room is a piece of cake
[QUOTE=iLife_Aftermath;35067759]add a parasite, and every room is a piece of cake[/QUOTE] add common cold + charm of vampire + inner eye and you're unstoppable
[QUOTE=DerpVII;35073550]add common cold + charm of vampire + inner eye and you're unstoppable[/QUOTE] reflection + tammy's head is feasible add piercing and spectral shots and that starts crossing the line into hypothetical add those and you have a near impossible build
[QUOTE=wlzshroom;35073762]reflection + tammy's head is feasible add piercing and spectral shots and that starts crossing the line into hypothetical add those and you have a near impossible build[/QUOTE] With the D6 farming technique discussed yesterday, it's actually possible if you are very very patient.
[QUOTE=Psychopath12;35073782]With the D6 farming technique discussed yesterday, it's actually possible if you are very very patient.[/QUOTE] well yeah but not all of us have the d6 i just got money=power though, also picked up the wafer along the way saved my ass in the womb!
All I'm missing is Mama's Boy and no matter how hard I try I can't do it arghhh For some reason it already gave me Golden God.
YES YES YES! First Satan kill! [img]http://s.horsedrowner.net/NANO/Isaac/201203100918253866-1024x800.png[/img]
Can't wait till the new expansion comes out. I need a good reason to Play this game again seeing I already got it 100% cleared.
[QUOTE=Heroms;35074768]All I'm missing is Mama's Boy and no matter how hard I try I can't do it arghhh For some reason it already gave me Golden God.[/QUOTE] Since christmas, the golden god can be obtained by collecting every item but one and the additional coal from crampus. Still, you are going to need this for the platinum god achievement which will be added in "wrath of the lamb"
Fuck yeah, just got the last "no damage" achievement I needed, Dark Boy. I'm waiting for Edmund to add a no damage run for Sheol so I can finally have an achievement to prove that I've done it so I can show my friends :v: Also, on the final shop I visited, I was expecting to run into Greed. Instead I found a Quarter in there. Rest assured, I bought myself some more money.
my god this game is fucked up. i got an upgrade that was a coathanger sticking out of my head. that's some heavy shit implied right there
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;35075140]my god this game is fucked up. i got an upgrade that was a coathanger sticking out of my head. that's some heavy shit implied right there[/QUOTE] You haven't seen everything yet...
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;35075140]my god this game is fucked up. i got an upgrade that was a coathanger sticking out of my head. that's some heavy shit implied right there[/QUOTE] Oh boy, that's nothing.
Oh god, did that one simple black fly just turn into one of those flies that shoot?
i just love how fucked up this game is. same with limbo. the fucked upness alone makes the game worth it
Why yes indeed; there's plenty of items and things that help tell the story of Isaac's trials and tribulations prior to his "dark descent" into the basement. Like the HP-Up items being rather unsavoury things that likely comprised Isaac's diet, or the Wooden Spoon that increases his speed with implications of him running from the "punishment". You know it's fucked-up at the first glance; you ain't seen NOTHING until you think of the meanings behind the items. Then it becomes a case of fridge horror that makes that week-old curry look like a cartoonish Hallowen decoration. Another example is how some of the Range-Up items seem to have a theme of secret shame, like Mom's Lipstick and Heels for instance. Quite a cool form of storytelling if you ask me; telling the story visually and using Fridge Horror to slowly realise that Isaac has had a horrible horrible life even BEFORE jumping into the Basement. Also, does anyone know what the alternate chapters are?
On the 5th first run and the first successful run with ??? I got Brimstone and a shitload of Soul Hearts. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/9BR8j.png[/IMG] :v:
[QUOTE=horsedrowner;35075209]Oh god, did that one simple black fly just turn into one of those flies that shoot?[/QUOTE] If a black fly hovers around a pile of poop for so long, it turns into a shooting fly that has the same hp as the black fly.

Hinting that she actually wanted a girl all along and has made Isaac crossdress, regardless of his peers' ridicule. The Wooden Spoon and Belt are old-school forms of punishment, as such he would run faster to avoid it. The food-based HP ups are all spoiled or dogfood (one of them is even served in Max's bowl, but Isaac later finds that his dog was decapitated). Isaac's life is a tragedy in itself, a wonder he hasn't attempted suicide before his mother locked him in his room, although the ending in Sheol combined with one of the chapter preludes and Blue Baby's existence shows that he decided to suffocate himself. Still, I'm looking forward to the expansion. I'm curious to see what Edmund has come up with.
Didn't Edmund say that Isaac is basically doomed? As in, it doesn't matter what he does, he'll die anyway. Either by Mom, the basement or he'll commit suicide in the chest?

Made it to sheol for the first time [img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/ScreenCap_2012-03-10_a_16.32_.15_.png[/img] Fuck you Satan.
