I have to do you a favor. You need to konw about the latest Humble Indie Bundle 7. The latest Bundle is mind blowing and wraps up these awesome games:

  • Snapshot

  • The Binding of Isaac + Wrath of Lamb DLC

  • Closure

  • Indie Game: The Movie

  • Shank 2

Oh right and if you pay above the average you get Dungeon Defenders + DLC and Legend of Grimrock. Oh right and all the soundtracks in MP3 + FLAC + Steam Keys and all that works on Win, Mac & Linux.

The only of the above games I have is Isaac and this adds the Wrath of the Lamb DLC, something I have wanted to get, so ... awesome bonus!

Isaac, Indie Game the Movie and Legend of Grimrock are all great. Dungeon Defenders is sort of fun. Well worth it, regardless.

Haven't tried Grimrock yet but it looks really fun. Wanted the Isaac DLC so this is a good place to nab it.

Wrath of the Lamb is great but it does make the game harder. Gotta man up, Dodson!

I have been playing Isaac a bit here and there. I tried some after I refreshed my copy with the Lamb DLC and it didn't seem much harder but there were more items showing up than I remember. I made it a few levels before I was killed.

I also just checked out Legend of Grimrock. The game takes an old mechanic and dials is up significantly. Fun.

The way you advance in Isaac is unlocking characters and knowledge. Work on getting 4 health upgrades in one playthrough to unlock a character that is sort of a beginner mode. Then work on getting 70 cents in one play through to unlock another easy mode character.

During break I'm going to try to record some LPs or guides for Isaac. I figure I should use my 300 hours for something.

You should.

So far I have unlocked Magdeline. She is pretty useful actually. I got so many items last game I needed to hit up the wiki to see what did what.

Don't use the wiki! It's much more fun to experiment.

Roll with Maggie for a while and try to unlock Cain. He's the next tier. All other characters are actually much more difficult and are akin to challenge modes.

That makes sense, thanks. I got "The Tick" and yeah, that sucked. Didn't kill me but took up an item area, so yeah ill try and avoid that next time :D

Not too used to anti-items but Isaac has quite a few :D

Gary_Butterfield wrote on 12/20/2012 at 08:13pm

The Tick is only a problem if you're going for the Chest, which is waaaay in your future. Until then, it life drains each boss when you meet them so it's not too bad!

Whoa, I didn't know it did that, thats awesome. I thought it just hurt me. Cool.
