Are You Sure You Want Me To Die?

Postby zaratustra » Tue Nov 11, 2014 1:11 pm

So Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is out. http://store.steampowered.com/app/250900/

It's pretty good. Treasure rooms have better items, secret rooms have worse items. The new characters are a second-rate Isaac and a short-range powerhouse. Some rooms repeat themselves a bit too often but not as often as they did in the original.

Ah, and there is a super-secret character that was going to require some ARG-like effort to unlock, but someone just hacked the game and found out how to do it. McMillen was pissed.

Some people go into gaming because they shouldn't be trusted anywhere near a secure system, yeah.

Also, adding the super-secrets as achievements might not have been a good idea.

But, but, without cheevos how will I enjoy the game? I need to be able to make fun of my friends for not having as many cheevos as me.

The community had basically found it all out anyway a day or so after release. You had to die a certain way and you'd get one of ~200 puzzle pieces that spelled out the final solution. They had reached that part and were already assembling them when someone went "found it" via datamining.

So at best the ARG would have lasted one more day.
