As crazy good as the D6 may be, Cain will always be my default. Never having to worry about pills and almost always winning games of chance is matvelous.

Well, if I get an arcade my current run time will extend by 20 minutes.

I like Cain because while I like Isaac and Judas, Cain doesn't start with a really good spacebar item like those two do so I wind up with more varied runs.

Just in time for Rebirth, I have finally achieved Dark Boy! The game only thinks I've gotten 93/97 secrets, though, so no plat god yet. I know I've gotten those secrets before (I've been at 96/97) and I know why it's doing this (stupid flash and cookies affecting how the game works), so I'll just have to re-unlock the missing secrets to get plat god... I sure hope I don't need to find Ultra Pride again.

This happened to me too. I normally don't care about achievements in games, but I liked and played this game enough to get there only to be robbed.

One thing they really need to address in Rebirth is the D6. Unlocking it is a challenge but Isaac is just too loving good with it. I could see giving him the D20 to reroll hearts and keys and stuff to give him an advantage but turning The Poop into Mom's Knife (extreme example) is way, way too powerful.

Why does it matter if it's strong? You have to play the game on... 8 other characters now to 100% it? Let the Isaac and Cain be easy-mode. There's plenty of difficulty with other characters.

It does since this year. It started off kind of bad though. Aside from the wonderful expansion pack BoI isn't the kind of game to get bug fixes, let alone new features.

So do you think that means things like the pony exploit will still be in Rebirth? You know, where if you don't move or hit any of the arrow keys you're invincible, and you can still use the mouse to attack without activating the charge?

The game was rewritten from the ground up. There's no reason to suspect it will have the same glitches.

One more time:
IF you have a PS+ membership both the PS4 and PS Vita version of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will be included in your subscription

IF you donít have a PS+ membership. Each version is purchased separately.

Don't remember if it's been announced, but that list has an achievement for a Boss Rush mode, I wonder what it'll exactly be like

Well, just over two days left until the game unlocks on Steam, pretty excited.

At least there's no no-damage achievement for Sheol or the Cathedral!

Doesn't seem to be a "beat Blue Baby / mystery dark room boss" achievement for any chars either, though, except for the Lost Poster.

I'm super psyched about the psn thing. The origanal binding of issac was one of those games I though was pretty good but wasn't the type of game I wanted to get super into playing on the pc. With a brand new version coming on the vita it can be the new splunky for me.

I wish Vita actually had games so I could justify a purchase of one. BoI seems like a really good game to play on a Vita.

The no damage achievements were pretty easy tbh, just stop taking so much damage. Looks like Rebirth might be a bit harder difficulty wise in general though.

Basement and Caves were piss-easy until Wrath came out. Womb wasn't too bad either, probably third easiest.

Depths was always the hard one but the Wrath version made it incredibly difficult.

D6'd Isaac also makes the harder no damage achievements manageable, by making a flight item easier to get. In my opinion it was a good design choice to include a re-rolling item to balance the heavy RNG dependency of some parts the game.
