Did the increase the chance of money dropping? I feel like I'm getting more than I used to.
Haven't made much progress on the alternate paths yet. Still working at it.
Also I rediscovered how bullshit Greedier mode is. God I hate it.

I died to one of satan's leeches exploding just as he died lol. Was playing as Bethany and didn't get the unlock. She's a cool character though.

I got the psychic tears one and a battery that charged every time I damaged something. Was pretty good until I got killed by the invisible exploding leech after doing everything correct

Some bad items have really good wisps. I think my first win was her with Dead Sea Scrolls and I pwned everything. Guppy's Head is also easy mode, you get so many orbitals

She's got a couple good ones. Spin to Win is pretty fun.

Also well done on that lost run, that rules!

i managed to finish a run with herr and the only activated item i saw was d7 which you SHOULD NOT pick up as bethany since the orbiters will activate the d7 effect if they come into contact with anything and port you out of boss rooms. epic!

man I am SO loving TRASH at this game now dude lmfao. I used to be able to beat the game w/lost any time I wanted.. hell, he even became my favorite character to play due to the free devil deals! even over Judas! but now, I'm dying constantly on lovely rear end early rooms. So shameful

The remote detonated tears on her is epic. Though I just died to the lamb this time due to not knowing any of the enemies anymore and getting there with half a heart.

if you're doing the alt path its intended to be much harder than the regular floors and i ate poo poo a lot when i started (I still get sniped in gehenna every now and then)

Man I had an insane run going the first time I tried going for the knife pieces...got hosed down to 1 heart heading out of the knife piece 2 area since it's so weird and then died to one of the new bosses on the same floor

Mines thabkfully doesnt have too many rough bosses. I dont like the one that uses spikeballs to attack thabkfully the rest arent anything crazy
Gehenna though has a mask of infamy reskin that was a run ender on my lost playthroughs gently caress that thing

I don't find Downpour bad at all and if I have a spare key I'll almost always pop in for the extra loot from doing the mirror map in Downpour 2 even if I'm not doing the Mother path. Also if you're playing as Isaac with D6 you can reroll the first knife piece into something useful. but Mines are definitely harder than Cave and Gehenna is a real liability, I never gently caress with those unless I'm going for Mother.

edit: The big mindblowing thing to me, which I don't think was really newly buffed in Repentance but I just never noticed in Afterbirth+, is how good the sacrifice rooms can be if you have a lot of health sources. Using them increases your angel room chance, has pretty good odds of teleporting you to the Angel Room or or giving you items from it, it can give you a ton of coins, etc etc. If I'm playing a red heart character and I have a bunch of spare hearts laying around the map and a sacrifice room I'm always excited to hit it up. And once again if you're playing Isaac with D6 you can reroll the key pieces that the angel bosses drop into useful items.

edit edit: They're also one of a very small number of ways to give you a chance of encountering an angel room on floor 2

I've always completely ignored sac rooms. Maybe I'll give them a shot now.

they changed hush and while the slowed down continuum tears are easier, the endgame does delirium style bullshit where he shifts through attacks really fast making it so they can overlap in bad ways and hard to get a shot in when he summons the fifth mob in a row. not a fan

a lot of the newer endgame stuff is crap and greedier mode is still unplayable but regular Greed Mode is still sick.

The mother fight barring two things is very good and dogma is cool, but its telling that none of them have the armor hush or ultra greed do.

The jam percentage in greedier is so small its alnost nonexistant but youd have to play greedier mode. Also each character has tgeir own jam percent, rotate chars!!

Greed Mode and Shop donation machines are the only things I cheated on PC. Did that on Switch and don't want to do that ever again, lol (even though I feel like jam % is down from the original release) -- if anyone else wants to do it through cheatengine it's super easy

Got the coveted ludovico + brimstone + gnawed leaf combo. Got the first Delirium kill of my new file. Even with the nigh unbeatable combo Delirium is such a poo poo boss. His behavior is so erratic it's hard to tell what's a glitch and what's not.

goferchan
Feb 8, 2004



The concept and all the different sprites and the way it cycles through the specific bosses you fought during your run are all so cool but yeah that fight sucks poo poo lol. Even when I handily win it doesn't feel good, it's way too unfocused. The Void kind of sucks too, I like all the false boss rooms but it would be neat to have a real floor

I get absolutely destroyed any time I go in large rooms on the alternative path, I'm just focusing on other unlocks I missed from Afterbirth+ for now...
