@beachthunder: I feel your pain. Unfortunately there is a lot of luck involved. I just beat boss rush mode with him- I was guppy and only had two damage upgrades, but that was enough. There were nights where I was 50+ runs in, I would get mom's knife on the first floor, then die before I got to the first boss because my brain was fried. I even managed to mess up a Relic Shield + Stop Watch run...

Every single Lost run I won was due to guppy so don't be afraid of those curse rooms and don't pass up on items that allow you to teleport out of them (tarrot cards, teleporter) or items that can get you out of them for free (book of shadows, unicorn stump, etc.)

Can someone confirm- I can't seem to be able to bomb into special rooms (item, mob trap, curse room, etc.) from the secret room anymore. Was this changed in the last patch?

Ludovico Technique + Azazel is even more messed up than orbiting tears + Azazel. It basically reduces all rooms to sit in the corner and melt everything with one gigantic never-ending circular brimstone.

Ha, I just got that for the first time today! Also finally beat Blue Baby with The Lost, all you need is a little help from Guppy. I can't wait until I never have to play The Lost again...

How has nobody mentioned Mom's Knife + Brimstone? Unless I missed it... Shooting a stream of knives! So awesome.

"The team has been steadily growing..." What? I thought they just laid of a bunch of people a few weeks ago. Unless they are shifting people from other projects.

If anyone is interested, NL did a stream with Edmund, Tyrone, and Matthias about the expansion expected to come out some time next year.

@beachthunder Did you have a strategy to donating the 999 coins? I'm sitting around 350, and it seems like it's going to take a whole lot of time to hit the final goal.

You guys are both absurd. As for getting to 999 coins, if I entered a shop and there was nothing I wanted, I would put money in the donation machine instead. Sure it may keep me from getting an item on the next floor, but who knows if you'll see a donation machine later in the run.

There are a lot more items that generate money so that helps- PHD + Blood Bank + Life Savings + Contract from Below or Humbling Bundle = lots of money. Lucky rock is good too.

After about an hour of waiting a match finally started, 7/10 people for Slayer. When the loading screen popped up it was for a campaign mission for Halo 2... which it was stuck on indefinitely so I had to restart my Xbox. After I tried loading Halo again it hard locked before it even got to the main menu.

This is a bit absurd, I'm a huge Halo fan and this is a disappointment to say the least.

Before the patch I could get into games, now after about 40 minutes of waiting, nothing. So sad.

It was a great feeling getting to jump between the four Halo's in matchmaking, it kept things fresh. That being said, it was not worth the 20 minute wait times. Unfortunately I'll probably move on to other things at least until I go home for the holidays.
