Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ starts weeping January 3rd

The second The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site] expansion, Afterbirth+, now has a release date: January 3rd. It'll give the roguelikelike dungeon crawler a new chapter, a new character, new items, new enemies, and that other typical expansion stuff, but also bring official mod support. Afterbirth+ was expected to launch by the end of this year but hey, I'm sure the holiday season can…

Super Isaac Meatman McMillen Explains Øuroboros

For months, Isaac-Binding Super Meatman Edmund McMillen has been slowly revealing progress on his next games: a puzzle-RPG Isaac spin-off named The Legend of Bum-bo, made with James Id; and some sort of shooty platformer, made with Tyler Glaiel, by the name of... er... oh! That second game now has a name, Øuroboros, which will make it a lot easier to talk about [though that…

Isaac Expansion Brings Inventory-Munching Locust King

Receiving unwanted items is always a bummer in a roguelikelike where every drop counts, so I'm glad to hear that my favourite roguelikelike is getting a powerful new solution to that. The second expansion to The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site], Afterbirth †, will add a new character with the power to receive powerful bonuses for destroying items. His name's Apollyon (or Abaddon, as…

Binding Of Isaac Mod Tools Coming In Afterbirth † DLC

Ace roguelikelike cry 'em up The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site] expanded only last month with Afterbirth (it's fab!), but word's already arrived of another add-on in the works. This will be a small affair in some ways, with new bosses and items and transformations and all that, but also a whole lot bigger: it'll add mod tools. Tentatively named Afterbirth †, the DLC…

Burials And Bubblewrap: The Binding Of Isaac ARG

In the week or so after the release of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth [official site], many members of the Isaac community were up in arms. Datamining - digging through the code for behind the scenes information - had revealed less new content than the pre-release build-up and Steam store page seemed to promise. There was talk of gated content that would only release when…

The Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth review

Four years after its original release, The Binding of Isaac [official site] is still one of the games I'm most likely to turn to given a spare fifteen minutes (or couple of hours). The recent release of Afterbirth, a DLC/expansion/semi-sequel has rekindled my love, and I've spent most evenings since locked in a basement of shit, blood and tears. Whether you want to classify it…

No More Tears – The Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth Is Out

I quit. For the next three or so months, I have better things to do than write about video games: I shall be playing the one and only game, the game of games, the game's game, The Binding of Issac: Rebirth [official site]. The roguelikelike shooter's expansion 'Afterbirth' has just come out on Steam, adding a new character, hundreds of new items, enemies, bosses, areas,…

I had expected this week would bring a trailer announcing a release date for the Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site] expansion Afterbirth but no, sadly not.Instead, co-creator Edmund McMillen has finally revealed the mysterious new mode he's been teasing. Named Greed Mode, it's a mob/boss rush-ish survival challenge mode which relies heavily on shops to give lots of options in how you build your…

Guess Who With The Electric Chair: Fingered Released

Guess Who? may not have the awe and admiration of the tabletop gaming world, but I maintain that the clacking of a card being ruled out and flipped down is one of gaming's most delightful sounds and sensations. Fingered [official site] is also about peering at suspects and whittling them down based on their appearance, though given that it's about police ID lineups and Edmund…

Bouncing Bloodlasers In Binding Of Isaac Expansion

Part of the torment of tracking the upcoming 'Afterbirth' expansion for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site] is seeing its changes and additions and crying "I DIED SO MANY TIMES BECAUSE I NEEDED THAT." I get bitter about Isaac losses. Case in point: the shot-bouncifying Rubber Cement will combo with beam weapons like Brimstone and Technology to reflect shots everywhere, and I can think…

Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth Expansion Adding Daily Runs

Remember that time I said "if The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth adds daily challenges, I will ditch every commitment short of a funeral to hit the day's run." Well! To my friends, my family, lovers, acquaintances, colleagues, rivals, and enemies, I apologise. I shall bail on you all soon.The 'Afterbirth' expansion for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will add daily runs with leaderboards, co-creator Edmund…

Binding Of Isaac Double Newsblast: Eternal And Afterbirth

But here I mean The Binding of Isaac [official site], which has exciting new things going on with both its original Flash version and the fancy remake Rebirth.BoI's ultra-difficult 'Eternal' update is now out, introducing a new difficulty mode full of ridiculous bullet-spewing variants of enemies. It's somewhere…

Afterbirth – Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth Expansion Info

I'm still making steady progress through The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site], with 111 of 178 secrets unlocked. Not shooting for specific goals, I'm slowing down, and suspect I'll still have a fair few to go when the expansion hits. That'll "hopefully" arrive around the middle of this year, Edmund McMillen has said in a nice big blog post with more details on what…

Over To You! Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth Expansion Plans

You probably could fill a notebook with all the ideas you've had for improving video games over the years, and I rather wish you had. I'm curious, is all. But if you've had an idea for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Edmund McMillen wants to hear it. He and the Nicalis gang are starting to stretch, think about having a wee, fetching a glass of…

Wot I Think- The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth

2011's The Binding Of Isaac was the evil, twisted twin to Spelunky - both perma-death, procedurally-generated games with superficial accessibility masking extreme precision of design and a long path to mastery. Isaac, though, went for an over-caffeinated shmup angle rather than measured puzzle-platforming. A tale of a young boy descending into a hellish world of blood, faeces and religious perversion in search of some kind…

Untied: The Binding Of Isaac Rebirth Released

It's healthy to cry, They say. Better out than in, They tell me. I firmly believe that no one should cry any more than four times per year, and should carefully ration their tears lest they find themselves amidst tragedy but over quota, forced to grind their teeth and dig their nails into their palms to keep the blubbing in. This is perhaps not wholly…

Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth Dated, Discounted, And Danced

Firstly, you can watch people nude but for the sacks over their heads stumble around accompanied musically by a warbling hymn. Secondly, the expanded remake now has a confirmed release date: November 4th. And a release date naturally means pre-orders are open too, on Steam. The discount promised…
