    Northernlion is actually pretty decent at Isaac. Not the best player ever and he still makes some really bizarre (read: bad) choices, but compared to a lot of people I've seen, he's reasonably good at it.

    It does drive me up a wall how much he forgets what things do, though.

    he is good at a lot of technical stuff like dodging

    absolutely infuriating though when he does shit like leaving eternal hearts + forgetting about them, refusing to take 'self sacrifice' rooms, not knowing what items do when he's sunk maybe 300+ hours into isaac

    how does that go

    That within Isaac is a code engine that has the specific purpose of fucking with you, be it via items given out, or room/enemy layouts.

    Worst room layout for me is the mask dudes in the single wide corridor layouts.

    also it will only give you good items when you specifically do not need them

    Hey, just died to one of those earlier, thanks to a run where i think it was 1 key and 1 bomb that dropped, and obviously not enough hearts

    I ran into a room in the Womb that had three brain things and two of those blob guys that chase you and there were a lot of rocks

    it would have been mega easy with flying but I did not have

    the number of times I've gotten Transcendence in a secret room, directly after paying 2 or 3 hearts for flying from a devil room is infuriating.

    red mom is easy once you get the pattern down.

    just had a promising purist run that petered out in necropolis

    i got raw liver and bandage from the first floor

    then i got a bunch of tears down + range downs and not a single damage upgrade

    by the time i reached necropolis the extra time i spent on every room had caused me to lose all my health

    Roughly how many hours do people put into the game before managing to kill mom?

    27 hours of gametime and I've only actually reached her twice.

    I... can't recall how long it took me to finally get Mom.

    I do have about 162 hours sunk into this, however.

    Holy shit, I just beat mom the first time I got to her. I had a super sweet setup with 3 dollar bill, quad shot and something that made the shots homing, plus a bunch of pretty good other things (including the item magnet from the last run I did which carried over occaisionally into this one?) But yeah. 2 hours, mom beaten, time to do it again a bunch.

    $3 bill can sometimes give you magneto instead of a tear effect for some reason.

    Yeah. I'm pushing 250 hours of play, but there were at least three occasions where I paused the game to do something else and accidentally left it running overnight, so my play data is pretty skewed.

    what a weird run so far. With samson, the first treasure room had the D6. A good portion of the item drops were stuff I wanted rather than transmuting, and now here I am on a floor with a forget me now, and the crystal ball. What to do what to do.

    use the ball, get the drop, clear all the rooms then use the d6 on the ball then forget me now

    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
    What is this in reference to? And item levels?

    So other than having no real hearts, this seems a decent start.

    I just kinda wished there had been a purse in the shop instead of the map so I could pick this burnt penny back up.
