    An email from PS Plus reminded me about BoI - apparently it's my most played game with 442 hours logged.

    It inspired me to get the Rebirth DLC at the weekend.

    Bloody hell, I'd forgotten how much I love this game, and how deeply it gets its claws into me. All other games have been indefinitely put on hold.

    I think the 1000000% achievement might be the only thing that can make me stop, but I'm not entirely sure what I need to do now to get it.

    Pretty sure what stopped me last time was trying to do the Boss Rush with the Lost. I suppose I'll just sharpen my skills on Greed mode for a few weeks until I'm ready to have another crack at it.

    I don't see it mentioned as much as bloat, but does anyone else fucking hate Mask of Infamy? God it's fucking boring when it's just the mask left and you only have normal tears. Enjoy landing one shot every time he zooms across the screen because he moves faster than your tears unless you're running at top speed.

    Finally unlocked It Lives! Now to just smash it in, then ??? my way into fighting Isaac and punch his stupid face in.

    D6, YOU WILL BE MINE.

    Also, 8 Inch Nails / Jacobs Ladder / Quad Shot / Soy Tears is my most fun run ever. LIGHTNING, EVERYWHERE.

    Nice one! Almost polished off the first 20 challenges now, think I'm at 40 hours or so.

    @yegon It was nigh on impossible to control him, having the buddies helped to give me a rough idea but even getting through a door was a chore

    I bet yeah. I've had him pretty small and it gets very tricky, especially picking up items etc.

    Loving this on Switch. Amazing after soooo many hours across multiple formats I STILL pick up the odd item I've never seen before. Not AB+ items either, items that my BoI app tells me arrived with Rebirth. Crazy.

    75 hours on this in about two and a half weeks.

    Is this how addiction starts?

    Yup.

    It's just the beginning.

    Really not sure how much I've put into it across several formats, must be about 400+ at least. It's a perfect podcast game, it's great for relaxing with, hypnotic at times, and the fact you can have a satisfying start, middle and end in a reasonable amount of time means it's brilliant for squeezing into 40 minutes here or there when you're back from work or something.

    It amuses me that for a long time I dismissed it immediately on the basis of the graphics. Not simply that they're relatively basic, but I originally hated the art style. Sat unloved in my Steam library for months after getting it for pennies in a sale on a mates recommendation. Little did I know.

    Not if you continue being that casual

    heh, I got the Ipecac/Libra combo for the first time today. Figured I might as well take on the Bloat while I was at it. Still took ages! It seems there's no point though unless you go to the Void? Still need one more run to get the Negative unlocked.

    Right, i need an unlock guide or something. I've got the Chest unlocked and I've been smashing blue dead babies like they're going out of fashion, but what else?

    Your best best is to focus on filling in each character's post it note on the character select screen. I'm guessing you have both the polaroid and the negative unlocked now?

    Dad's Key is probably one to aim for if you have. You'll need to get 2 key pieces by bombing the angel statues in the angel rooms once you've beaten the Lamb. 2 in one run will do it.. Incidentally that will let you get in to the big key door in Dark Room/The Chest. So you'll want to do both of those bosses.

    There's also the Bloat, which is accessible if you beat It Lives in under 30 minutes. Beating that unlocks the Void, which is another route.

    Challenges, as well.

    Plus there's the Lost.

    Only the Polaroid at the moment.

    I keep wasting time with casual Lilith greed runs. Four streak so far, just too fun.

    Cool, get the Negative unlocked by beating Sheol a few times then.

    I just got Libra again, this time with Taurus. That's a fun combo.

    @Duffking You mean Hush, the Bloat is a normal boss (though one of the more annoying ones).

    Oh yeah, the Hush. Duh.

    I keep fucking up runs at the end now. Grr.

    My biggest issue mid run is that I get kind of bored in large rooms if I don't have a lot of extra damage and end up taking stupid hits.

    Are damage ups less common due to the new items? I did have an amusing moment yesterday though where I had the curse that hides what items you have, went into a devil room, saw 2 1-heart items, rerolled them, saw a 2-heart item hoping for Death's Touch and it was.

    And yeah, fuck the Bloat too. Stupid bastard no-windup brimstone lasers.

    When did Krampus become seemingly bullshit? I can't see any way of telling whether his lasers are going to go diagonally or not.

    OK seriously, Krampus is fucking bullshit now. Just playing Greed mode for the first time and he's fucking ruined it twice in a row with his bullshit brimstone laser spin that you can't tell if it's coming diagonally or not or if it's going to spin or not. Lame as fuck.

    Binding of Isaac coming to EU Q2 2017.

    Vague date and awful new artwork! Glad I plumped for US digital....though I might buy the physical release if it comes with stickers and other tat.

    I created an American account last night to downloaded it. $40 - no chance. In total I paid less for the base game and all expansions on release day on Steam. I'll wait to see if it is ever discounted.

    Pound for pound, I've got more value out of Isaac than any other game ever I think, despite buying it multiple times.

    In fairness, the original was $14.99 at launch, Afterbirth was $10.99 and Afterbirth+ was $6.66 if you got it in the first week, otherwise it's $9.99, so it's not that much of an increase - $36 on Steam or $40 on Switch.

    Yeah but this was when it was brand new on Steam. I'm not going to pay Ł40 for FIFA 14 in 2017. IIRC Steam offers a discount on Afterbirth if you owned Rebirth.
