Meat, Death, Mega Fetus!

Little stumpy head scribble by Edmund McMillen!

Totally got my Meat Boy figure in the post today, he is awesome. Totally got an extra Team Meat sticker and a phone charm thingy. (?) Man, I <3 Team Meat!

Getting the D6 re-roll item upgrade changed everything.

Finally got all the endings of The Binding of Isaac. I kept getting to Satan only to be murdered by his goat leg form. If I have a little complaint about the difficulty in that game it is definitely that boss. It's not the easiest thing to get to him and he has four forms, and learning his attacks the first few times you get to him will most likely get you murdered.

I had the luckiest run last night though, Rage, rainbow baby, little chad, rock, triple shot, blessed, big bullets, coal and Mom's pearl which meant I was constantly getting hearts in Sheol which is a rarity... in the final room a slot machine dropped The Tick and that drops bosses health by 15%. It is almost like the game knew to give me a break ( I highly doubt it was anything but luck) as I was one step away from giving up trying to beat Satan.

Beating Isaac in the cathedral was kinda easy, I did it first time.

I've had the opposite experience. Isaac = hard, Satan = easy. After finally getting the dlc yesterday, I've only made it to the cathedral once and only managed to get Isaac down to 50% health. I've had half as many deaths as you and at least twice as many mom kills, however all the new enemies seem to be kicking my behind. Hopefully I'll get a lucky run like you soon.

@DrFlapjack: I've only beaten Isaac once or twice since then, I think I just got really lucky that first time. I've not managed to kill Satan again. I've found that I have had far more successful runs since getting the DLC. I held out for so long because I didn't want to make the base game unchangeably harder. The biggest difference since getting it is that you're either ridiculously powerful for most of the game or just have the worst luck imaginable.
