No, I killed the fallen before I got here, it seems Satan spawned them? or he's the fallen here, idk.
Yes, Satan's first battle phase is spawning The Fallen.
[QUOTE=iLife_Aftermath;35085021]that's the fallen though[/QUOTE] I can tell you've never fought Satan.
[QUOTE=Spearman;35089398]I can tell you've never fought Satan.[/QUOTE] I can tell that you're the one who has not. That's the Fallen, as evidenced by the image. Satan's drawing on the death screen is much larger and more menacing. It actually exceeds the size of the rectangle that is there to contain the picture of what killed Isaac. As said earlier, Satan's first phase of the fight isn't with him at all: he spawns the Fallen and 2 exploding leeches.
[QUOTE=Psychopath12;35089471]As said earlier, Satan's first phase of the fight isn't with him at all: he spawns the Fallen and 2 exploding leeches.[/QUOTE] But that's what he implied?
[QUOTE=Psychopath12;35079754]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.[/QUOTE] The item Transcendance also seems to allude to this, since it's essentially a noose that makes him float (they all float down there). Not to mention that the cinematic in which Transcendance is unlocked ends with Isaac hanging himself. I remember from a screenshot that one of the new chapters, likely alternate, that the area was kind of like wooden planks. Dunno what name it has, but it might be an alternate Chapter 2-3, since the Alternate final stage may probably be more fucked-up than the Womb. Also would it even be possible for Ed McMillen to top the fucked-up nature of Binding of Isaac with his next project?
[QUOTE=iLife_Aftermath;35023248]"No item run" No items of powerups spawn. Blue baby only.[/QUOTE] Hi there. [url]http://facepunch.com/threads/1128659?p=32823751&viewfull=1#post32823751[/url] Kbye.
no satan fight not impressed kbye

The theme of the Cellar is spider-based enemies. Gonna be a fun playthrough for those with arachnophobia.
Huh, upon retrospect it does seem like the levels have specific themes. Obviously the Womb has a very organic theme, and the Cellar is allegedly spidery, but what are the themes of the other levels? Also, do you think the developer's going to make it so that the Spider enemies attack the fly enemies, since spiders eat flies in nature?

I would personally like to see some of the enemy AI to interact with one another, even if non-damaging. I have fond memories of playing the Spyro the Dragon trilogy on the Playstation and seeing enemies beating the crap out of one another in the distance and then they turn their focus on the player when they get close. It gives them some more personality. Granted, this is a per-room based game, so enemies doing that at range is impossible without them already being visible to the player. I could imagine there being a spider-based enemies that destroys poops and fires, like like the spiders from Centipede that destroyed the mushrooms. We already have Larry Jr., why not add more of the Centipede cast? v:v:v
-SNIP JUSTINTV DOESN'T WORK FOR GAMING FUCK IT-
The basement makes it look like you're not the first kid to go down there. Most of the enemies there look like you. Except they're all dead/aborted
[QUOTE=Scarabix;35094377]The basement makes it look like you're not the first kid to go down there. Most of the enemies there look like you. Except they're all dead/aborted[/QUOTE] Edmund has hinted that all of the human-like enemies are really Isaac. Consider what was discussed earlier and also hinted by Edmund, that the events in the basement are mere fantasy, and it makes more sense that most that Isaac is "fighting" is himself or projections of what haunts him. A rather traumatic hallucination before he is killed.
[QUOTE=Psychopath12;35094072]So far he's not revealed any other information about the other stages and their themes other than the final area being "light side" to contrast the darkness of Sheol.[/QUOTE] A "light-side" alternate final chapter, eh? Sounds like once Isaac reaches that stage he'll be ready to rage against the heavens for what God did to him (whispering stuff to Mom that wrecked Isaac's life), and thus the "angels" would tremble before the Wrath of the Lamb. The notion of the Wrath of the Lamb, and the possibility that Isaac is the Lamb (he was gonna be sacrificed by Mom, after all), kinda gives off vibes of Isaac getting even like how Kratos did. That'd actually be cool, to see Isaac rip God's head off with Kratos' war paint on him, eyes ablaze with rage.

I'm still looking forward to it, he said that it's going to be more challenging than the Satan fight, which is good since I can clear Sheol without taking a single hit, it's hardly a challenge to me anymore.

I pretty sure Edmund said that the game wouldn't be any longer, and that Sheol would be the last level. I'm not sure about the last part though, an alternative to Sheol is possible. He didn't want to make it longer because he thought that 30-45 minutes of gameplay each playtrough was enough. All of this is based on what he said in NorthernLions interview.
I always thought mom wasn't hearing god, she was just batshit fucking insane and hearing voices.
[QUOTE=Psychopath12;35060565]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.[/QUOTE] I've got about 15 ideas for items that I feel would fit nicely with the gameplay and the theme of the game. Maybe I should tweet/formspring Edmund my [sp]probably shitty[/sp] ideas?
[QUOTE=bunnyspy1;35095366]I always thought mom wasn't hearing god, she was just batshit fucking insane and hearing voices.[/QUOTE] Isn't that the case with everyone who claims god spoke to them?
[QUOTE=Vaeh;35096506]Isn't that the case with everyone who claims god spoke to them?[/QUOTE] Not in a universe where god exists. Well, probably, if satan exists.
Maybe Mom's Brain? Or something? The "Voice" that she heard could be a light-themed enemy without being God or anything...
Just got dark boy, I had Chocolate Milk + Max's Head + Money = Power and about 50 coins. Depths 1 used shovel, and depths 2 used an emperor card. (I received both of these in Caves 2)
First time getting brimstone and oh my god is this thing powerful. Beat moms heart for the first time too

[QUOTE=smug.gif;35098932][url]http://bindingofisaac.wikia.com/wiki/Collection[/url][/QUOTE] This helped me realize I only have to get 3 items before I get golden god :D
You guys are complete wizards, beating Sheol and such without getting tapped once. I must suck major dick at this game.
