    So, I'm finally getting round to playing this after getting it in the summer sale. I am not super good. But one learns in time.

    a pad + joy2key is the best way to play, hands down

    i have technology 2 and polyphemus right now and i really like it

    I was doing pretty garbage damage with Technology 2. Then I enter the chest, and the first gold chest I open gives me polyphemus. I had never had both at once before, that's so much damage without any damage buffs :O

    yes I do

    use the ??? invincibility glitch they patched out months ago

    that's how I did it
    something like brimstone or doctor fetus is probably your best bet

    long range multiple target kills so nothing gets in close

    I like the keyboard controls a lot. Doesn't really warrant a gamepad imo

    keyboard works fine, but gamepad just makes it smoother for me... to each their own on it though

    I got the rare dr fetus in the first treasure room.

    next room, I died to flies.

    putting this game down for a while.

    Ugh

    Ugh

    I did that recently, had Dr. Fetus and Homing Bombs, and died in the Necropolis to bullshit enemies. The game seems a lot harder after Wrath of the Lamb.

    Do you for sure get the cathedral if youve beaten Satan with a charecter or is somthing else required?

    you just need to have beaten it lives and have Wrath installed


    that's it
    What I mean is that if I play with Isaac and Ive already beaten satan with him do I definetly get the cathedral instead of sheol or is it 50/50?

    I got the cathedral only once so far and died on the first guy :S

    I love

    the d6

    first floor polyphemus and brimstone in a self sacrifice room
    next floor tech 2 and money=power
    floor after that? the nail

    got guppy's paw on womb 1 with 7 heart containers

    first cathedral kill was the easiest run I've ever had

    I have to admit I never got dark of legitimately. Mamas boy was much easier. With a decent load out, like fetus or brimstone, and flying, you avoid a lot of damage. If you have the compass and map, you can know directly where to go. An emperor card, or shovel for womb 1 will really help as well. I managed it in a pretty silly way actually. I had an emperor card and a teleported. I used the teleported right off on the first womb, and it gave me the error room so I skipped that whole thing, then I emperored to moms heart, which is easier to avoid damage than any of the trash rooms.

    Earlier today, I was playing eve. I got tech2, quad shot, a bunch of damage upgrades and the candle. It was great.

    Unfortunately, I got piss-all for health, speed and tears upgrades so I died somewhere on the necropolis.

    Possibly my most hated room type ever, the little maze rooms with no space for avoidance and full of the suicide bombing enemies.

    Completely fucks me up every time I run into it.

    yup

    unless you have flying you can't avoid a hit

    and that really, really sucks

    I swear I've never seen that combo when I have any form of flight.

    The game knows.

    It knows, and it hates.

    I think it's more likely that you're just too caught up in the moment of "HAHAHAHAAAAA! Can't touch me, motherfuckers!" to take notice.

    no, no...sentient and evil game intent on the destruction of my soul makes far more sense to me.

    I had a great run going as Cain last night, up until I started getting tired and my dodging turned to shit, ended up dying on mom of all bosses.... is it just me or is there different faster versions now? I could have sworn she was colored red and stomped a lot faster.

    yeah, but it's generally not worth it because doing so resets your item levels.

    you don't wanna be on the depths 2 and only have, like, a level 1 book of revelations

    And I even had the Candle, I think it's my favorite activate item now.
