  1. One of the common complaints I heard about the original game was that, because of Wrath of the Lamb+other content updates, the game was much harder that it was on launch. New players who bought the game+expansion were having a really hard time, since expansion content was active immediately and couldn't be turned off. So in Rebirth some of the more difficult room/enemy layouts don't appear right away. Chris was asking on the cast what the benefit of it being a new game was. As far as I know, the things that are different and wouldn't have been possible in flash are: 1) 60 fps (flash caps at 30), 2) reduced lag in crowded rooms (the flash version would lag even on fast machines), and 3) supposedly, as much new content as WotL (Edmund claimed the flash file wouldn't compile if they made it any larger than it already was). Another change that is really interesting to me is that items that effect your projectiles (like dr. fetus or brimstone) now stack in interesting ways rather than mostly overriding each other.
  2. Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    When I play this with my xbox controller it seems like I'm moving slower on diagonals vs when I use the keyboard. Is anybody else experiencing this?
  3. Cyberpunk Cop Killah (aka The Last Night)

    I always assumes "butthurt" came from the same place as "pain in the butt" but I just realized I don't know where that phrase comes from either. Wait, what is this thread about?
  4. HOWL O'WEEN (Halloween)

    I finally got around to carving a pumpkin for this year: It turned out ok. I still haven't quite figured out the best way to take pictures of jack-o-lanterns.
  5. Waggle Defense Force 3D!

    I thought of No More Heroes as soon as I read the thread title. That game was Wii only for a while, and I assume that's partly because the waggle was practically a core feature.
  6. The Black Glove kickstarter

    It seems like they've gone out of their way to make sure people realize the space minotaur thing is an actual game with depth to it and not just a weird pac-man clone, but eehhhhh, it's still kind of off-putting to me? The thing that really irks me about it isn't so much how it'll play, but the fact that it seems really thematically incongruous with everything else they've shown. Like, I kinda feel like the only reason it's an 80's arcade cabinet (as opposed to a magical closet or whatever) is because the devs grew up in the 80's and think 80's games are cool?
  7. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    I feel like this runs into the criticism=censorship thing that seems so common among #gameboys. Anita isn't arguing for sexist games to be banned or whatever, she's just expressing that they are lame. I mean, I'm sure you already know that, but it's frustrating that they don't seem to. Yesssss.
  8. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    This opinion is so insane to me I am having a hard time accepting it. I guess they believe there are a fixed number of games that can exist? And so every time someone makes a game they don't want that's one fewer game for them? How does one arrive at this opinion?
  9. I want to clarify that, as far as I know, he will be free if you own both versions, not that he will be a free character that will be available on both versions.
  10. I like how when Cooper comments on the donuts by saying something like "you guys are 3 for 3" to Truman, Truman looks confused for half a second and then the scene moves on without comment.
  11. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    It does seem like if you were committed to not talking about a person you wouldn't need a nickname to obfuscate the fact that you are still talking about them.
  12. The Flame in the Flood Kickstarter

    I'm curious to see what the final product ends up looking like. I've probably watched the kickstarter trailer ten times already, so I'll be surprised if it dosen't end up having something I'll find engaging. I noticed in the video one of the locations is "Weaver's homestead" and I wonder if that's supposed to be a not to Kentucky Route Zero or if I'm just looking for things that aren't there because KR0 is The Best (seriously you guys, it's so good). The games don't seem to have a ton in common, but it looks like there are some stylistic similarities between them (again though, maybe that's just my KR0-colored glasses)
  13. HOWL O'WEEN (Halloween)

    It's haunted by zombies which people shoot with paintballs (paint space balls?), it's actually pretty rad.
  14. HOWL O'WEEN (Halloween)

    Over the weekend I started work at a haunted corn maze. On the one hand, I have to work on Halloween night, but on the other hand, spooky corn maze.
  15. Good News Everyone

  16. Cartoons!

    I started watching Steven Universe because of you guys and now I'm mad at myself for waiting this long. It's a really good show! Why have I not been watching it this whole time?
  17. The Flame in the Flood Kickstarter

    I'm in the same boat as Murdoc, survival games are eh, and I think crafting systems are kinda dumb, but the entire rest of the video was aesthetic choices I am powerless to resist.
  18. Cartoons!

    I agree with tberton, Korra seasons 1 and 2 weren't very good, and absolutely had tons of arbitrary "drama". If season 4 had coma after those, I would agree that it would look like it was shaping up to be more of the same. But with season 3 they demonstrated they remembered how to make a good show again, so I'm cautiously optimistic about this season.
  19. I don't own a 3DS, so I haven't played this yet, but can someone explain to me why Dark Pit is a character? Is that something anyone wanted?
  20. Other podcasts

    Yep, same here.I guess I'll go listen to it now.
  21. emote me

    Fuck it so did I.
  22. emote me

    Ok but you didn't answer my question
  23. emote me

    What emotion is even supposed to be communicated by a smurf cosplaying as a rubik's cube?
  24. "Ethics and Journalistic Integrity"

    I made a mistake. I read some posts on r/kotakuinaction and now I can't look away and I want to die.
