I'll be the first to admit that this game is structurally super interesting, but I probably shouldn't watch any more because of my religitude, unfortunately.

Do what you will duder, but I think it is quite silly to not watch something you enjoy because it vaguely references Christianity, I missed the Thou Shalt not consume media of a certain type in the commandments. The mother is crazy and the game is about SPOILERS about Isaac dealing with his own guilt for things he felt like he did the only references to Christianity are "Voice from above" and a few items "The Mark" "The Halo" "Book of Rev" and the deals with the devil, but I don't see how references to your beliefs would make it where you need to stop watching your just seeing them in a negative light because you don't know how the story is finished it actually is about Redemption that seems like something you could get behind.

Really enjoying this. I think my lack of knowledge of how to play the game correctly is why I never got farther than I did. I plan to learn more by watching and, ultimately, jump back in the BOI to dominate that sick fucking mother. :)

@herbiebug: I love how Patrick was talking a year back about broadening his horizon by playing games he wouldn't usually touch and he brought us tons of his own content by doing that!

People weren't kidding when they said Wrath of the Lamb makes this game a lot harder. I started playing BoI when this feature began and put about 10 hours into it without even making it to Mom. Today, however, I downloaded a mod which would disable Wrath of the Lamb and promptly beat Mom in under an hour. Can't wait to see Patrick's reaction when he decides to activate the expansion for himself.

Yeah, we weren't fucking around, Wrath of the Lamb really changes the balance of the game. Like, those asshole spiders in the Cellar have movement patterns that are about as challenging as some of the rooms you face in the Depths.

It seems like development for Binding of Isaac has ceased at this point (a couple trinkets in Wrath of the Lamb are bugged, and some of the Steam achievements are mixed up, there hasn't been a patch for months and months), but I wish they would've changed the game so that even if you own the Wrath of the Lamb, its content doesn't unlock until you beat the game like 5 times or something.

Anybody who just buys this game on sale and gets a bundle with the base game and the expansion is in for a frustrating experience because Wrath of the Lamb content is immediately incorporated into the game, even though frankly pretty much ALL of it is only appropriate for experienced players with like dozens of hours logged.

You should definitely charge up Brimstone completely instead of spamming... it does a lot more damage (usually takes out an enemy in one hit)

I actually yelled when Patrick died with 53 cents. Not sure if I'll ever get Cane myself.

I cannot get the PS4 controller to work with Isaac. Any help? I have tried Joy2key and DS4 wrapper. I must be missing something. Running windows 8.

Cool intro music Patrick! I really like the ambiance, would love to hear something like this as an intro to the 'Dump Truck' again.

It's the Binding of Isaac theme song.

@patrickklepek Have you beaten FTL? If not, you should make that the next feature!

Really loving this almost as much as Spelunky; I played a fair bit of Binding of Isaac a while back and this just makes me want to go back to it.

I'm really enjoying the feature, @patrickklepek. My one wish once you complete these games is to do an interview with a developer. It would've been awesome to do a dumptruck with Derek Yu after you got that deep into Spelunky, or talking to Edmund after finishing this series.

At that point, you're in a position to really know what you're talking about. It'd be a rare opportunity to interview someone about some deep cuts. The aesthetic, the enemy design, the bosses, the music, etc. Just a thought, keep up the good work.

I think he mentioned during one of the Spelunkin' with Scoops streams that he had an interview scheduled with Derek Yu. It was either that or during one of his evening twitch Streams. He might have done that interview last week, actually!

Lolz, I'm surprised Steam Sale doesn't instantly empty your wallet and make every item $.01

I really hope Patrick hasn't actually given up on Eve for good

getting all of the game's best items requires using all of the characters

Let's be real here, there's no way Patrick wants to keep this feature going long enough to 100% the game. Most of the items you unlock through Eve are garbage anyways. Demon Baby is ok, and Sacrificial Knife/Dagger does good damage but is really situational and not really worth it. The rest are bad items/trinkets.

So, I didn't hear it if Patrick found out what the shovel (in-game, it's called "We Need To Go Deeper") did, but it's one of the best items in the game.

It's a spacebar item like the Yum Heart, and when used it spawns a trapdoor that will take you to the next level when you enter it (like the trapdoor that opens after you kill a boss). You can do this in any room, even if you haven't beaten the boss of that level yet. It's got a long recharge though, but it's possible to get through the whole game like this, fighting very few bosses.

I think the shovel is kind of useless unless you're going for the "don't take damage" achievements (where skipping a whole floor is nice). Otherwise, you're just robbing yourself of item pickups whenever you use the shovel. Bosses tend to yield stat boosting items (except all the crappy new boss items in Wrath of the Lamb). If you dig past a floor you miss its treasure room and shop (unless it's the Womb or later, where that is irrelevant).

I mean, sure you could just burrow down through a multiple levels if you're impatient to fight the final boss, but if you've been shoveling all game, you're probably so underpowered that The Womb II (or later levels) would annihilate you.

Why did you buy the two items from the shop BEFORE getting the 50% off item? That seems silly :/

Oh man, I just remembered that and realized that had he bought the Steam Sale first, he would have accumulated 55 cents and unlocked Cain.

Oh well! Live and learn, right?

Fun to play Isaac on my main screen, and see if I beat your run. Beat the second boss with Cane, so suck it Patrick! Ready to play more tomorrow :)

@patrickklepek After you've mastered all the roguelike like like's have you thought about moving on to metroidvanias? I'd love to see you try and master games like Symphony of the Night and Super Metroid

Yes, Cain is OP, you weren't being trolled Patrick.

On top of high damage and a key, he starts with a Lucky Foot which gives you high luck, and removes negative pills (tears/speed/life down etc).

He is by far the easiest character to beat the game with until you can unlock Isaac's D6. The D6 is where the game starts getting super crazy.

I skipped to the end of this one because I didn't have time to watch it, and I immediately regretted it. He had brimstone, book of revelations and super meat boy, and died??? What the heck?

Enjoying the series thus far! Played the game myself when it came out for a few days but never got into it. Seems I like watching it played rather than doing so myself!

This is a good feature, but it'd be great if you got the Wrath of the Lamb DLC soon.

Patrick's had some insane luck with the pills so far. So much so that Cain will probably seem just average at this point.

My favorite feature by far! Keep it up Patrick. I really wish more of the Bomb Crew would take on this type of daily show. Just a quick 30 minute show of whatever they feel like showing off, or are playing.

Patrick, you need to use the charge more. Walking into a room and immediately killing whatever's in front of you is pretty useful, as is popping from cover and taking something out in one hit.

The game really opens up once you get Wrath of the lamb! Angle hearts, super secret rooms, more rooms!

This is seriously a great feature.

Also, it's good to finally get some good-old-fashioned angry swearing. That's what The Binding of Isaac is to me, anyway.

Awww yeah, just finished beating the super secret final stage using Samson in combination with Chocolate Milk. Now all that's left for me to do is beat the super secret final stage with Eve and Blue Baby.
