    Yeh they toned down the voids. Overall it's still a great game and I'm happy AB+ let me return to it.

    Done everything with most of the characters but not looking forward to the keeper and the lost!

    @addyb

    Same, although I'm just buying it off US eShop.

    Only a few more days now. A brilliant accompaniment to Zelda, which I suspect I'll be playing for.........a very long time.

    @yegon

    I was going to do the same but the physical launch edition looks pretty cool so went for that.

    Think you need a US account to buy from it. I created one myself today. Will test it out on Friday with BoI.
  • Deleted user 15 March 2017 00:34:57
    Yeah you will. I've got 4 accounts now for different regions and it will just change region for each accounts eshop. Buy credit and get game :)

    Getting so close to 1000000%
    Just a few things left to mop up, the Ultra Hard challenge and then Delerium with Lost and Keeper. Got verry close with The Lost earlier got him down to about a quarter health before getting telefragged.

    As per the Switch thread, US version is out.

    Had a couple of runs, early thoughts;

    -there's no filter option for the graphics. Looks very pixellated on massive tv, I can't recall if it looks the same as the PS4 or PC version without the filter on as I always left it on, on those versions. Doesn't bother me particularly, I don't play it for the graphics, ha.

    -Only played it on tv with Pro controller so far. Find it quite difficult using the left stick for movement, struggle to run in exactly straight lines. Never had this problem with the DS4 stick. Happy to use the d-pad though, so not a big deal.

    Not played undocked yet, which is odd given I expect to play it predominantly in handheld mode.

    Anyway, in my book Afterbirth+ on a handheld = win.

    Vita version was previously the best handheld BoI imo, but that's obviously stuck at Rebirth.

    3DS version was the worst for me, pretty low average framerate, and they never fixed the bug where the whole system would freeze if you slept the 3DS for a long time in game.

    iOS version is great, and very smooth...but stuck at Rebirth and is touch controls, eek!(unless you want to use a mifi controller).

    /bought too many versions

    Thanks for the impressions! I'll be getting it today too.

    Any idea on how co-op works? Does it work with the 2 joy cons and you use the face buttons to shoot, no need for extra controllers?

    Managed Delirium with the Lost on my 8th or 9th run, got lucky with an OP run.

    Keeper is taking me a while though. Still got 13 secrets though, 2 are challenges, 2 are probably completion, so I wonder what the rest are.

    Edit: Oh yeah, 1 for 30 daily challenges.

    @GarlVinland

    Not sure.

    Re: handheld mode, I believe it doesn't look nearly as pixelated on the Switch screen (unsurprisingly). Will try it later, but back to Zelda on the tv for now, ha!

    Also, it does feel like a solid 60fps so far, but my runs have been incredibly tame in terms of enemies/action.

    It'll be great having portable Greed and Greedier mode :-)

    Edit: played in handheld mode now. Looks far better on the handheld, much less pixelated. A nice touch is that you configure the controls independently of the pro controller and incorporate the touch if you want to. Oh maaaan, I'm going to plough some hours into this while I'm watching tv, ha!

    @L0cky worth noting you need to do Greed mode with appolyon, just doing Greedier doesn't count for the achievement for some reason. This may have been patched by now though.

    I thought the "it's the key" achievement would've been trickier but I lucked out on an Azazel run there.

    The one I had the most trouble with the was the ReRun one, finishing a 3rd rerun is actually really tricky as although you're op by that point you automatically respawn as the lost on the 3rd run.

    @Gartt Did Rerun with my gf's save when I was just trying to unlock the Lost for her, oops. I was really OP that time, will see on mine. Anyway that's one more to get :)

    I'm good with greed mode, thought about that the first time i saw the completion marks. They should make the mark hollow. Apparently it's the same problem for Delirium if you never completed everything on Rebirth (easy looks the same as hard but doesn't count).

    It's the key sounds tough and frustrating!

    I feel the need to boast about getting through the void on my second go of the switch version (it was the daily challenge) got lucky using the money thing to recycle items until I got the one that does the white beam of light, it was instakilling enemies after I'd used the d10 a few times.

    Most of the daily challenges carry you. Everyone who did the challenge walked it.
  • Deleted user 17 March 2017 19:27:54
    Switching between accounts now on the eshop is great. I half expected for it to be impossible with this being Nintendo. It works a treat.

    Worth noting that it asks for your zip code when you purchase on US store. In my haste to play it I entered the only one I know - 90210, thanks Brandon and Brenda XD

    I was lucky, some zip codes make you pay more due to sales tax apparently! News to me.

    Yeah I did anchorage alaska as it doesnt add any then.
  • Deleted user 17 March 2017 20:07:40
    Great to have this on the switch. Never played it on Vita but it's a lovely fit for the switch in handheld mode. I find it controls well with the joycon sticks. I've yet to try the dpad buttons.

    Actually managed to beat Waka Waka and get death's touch on my first go. Without needing to get Brimstone or any massively gamechanging items. Found that one a bit of an arse on PC.
  • Deleted user 18 March 2017 11:22:50
    I'll keep saying it but it feels great to have this on the switch. Played TV mode last night then decided to have an hour in bed so undocked and upstairs i trotted :)

    Game is awesome. Still not really touched the surface of it as i only played around 8 hours of rebirth on the ps4. It's always got that one more run hook in me.
  • Deleted user 19 March 2017 10:22:25
    A recap needed chaps. I finished a run last night and I've unlocked a few characters.

    Do i just keep going with Isaac until i unlock more or move onto the other characters for their runs?

    Do what you like, you have to complete the game multiple times before new stuff opens up, but it doesn't matter which characters you do it with. However, you get more items unlocked by completing with other characters. The idea is to fill out the post it notes 9 icons. Including hard mode, there are 18 required completions for each character.

    Actually, there are 19 now. Forgot one that doesn't have an icon.

    Or is it 20?

    So that's a lot of runs then lol :)
    All the challenges as well. Jeez this is going to run me over the 100 hour playtime barrier isn't it? My plan was to have half an hour on it last night before Zelda and i ended up sodding Zelda off and kept on this for a few hours.
