Let's play: The Binding of Isaac

You're all alone in the basement, naked, crying and surrounded by ungodly creatures and maybe a couple of flies. It shouldn't be fun but it is.

Someone help this poor child.

The Binding of Isaac is a an action-packed dungeon crawler roguelike, courtesy of the great Edmund McMillen.

You should know Edmund already.

Wikipedia says:
"The Binding of Isaac is a top-down 2D action-adventure game in which the player controls Isaac or one of six other unlockable characters as he explores the dungeons located in Isaac's room's basement. The game's mechanics and presentation is similar to the dungeons of The Legend of Zelda, while incorporating random, procedurally-generated levels in a manner similar to many Roguelike games."

It has tons of items and possible combinations, you may be a winged Isaac shooting bloody tears to your enemies or you can be a demon shooting blood lasers (really, they're blood lasers HOW COOL IS THAT).
Not everything is grim for you, some of the items can heal you back up or even spawn a couple of hearts, kind of like a health insurance.

But rejoice! You're not alone in your quest for survival. Well... you kind of are so let's say they'll avenge you when you die:

Oh come on, it's just Isaac with a hat.

Mom is some kind of sicko so she wants to kill you to prove her faith to God. That's why you go all over your basement escaping and, eventually, fighting against her (you also seem to have a gargantuan basement).
Thankfully your basement has all kinds of trinkets, tarot cards, items and monsters to set you up before you have to face Mom.

If you're new to the game or if you're not 100% familiar with the items yet I recommend having a BoI wiki open at all times so you don't ruin your own run since, of course, there are negative items that will set you down or even mess up the entire run.

Someone please explain me how did I end up in my mothers womb.

Isaac has been in more than one Humble Indie Bundle and can also be acquired via Steam of whatever you use for video games. If you haven't played it, please, give it a shot. It's worth.

If you're not convinced yet or if you want to see the game in action I advise you to check out Northernlion in Youtube. He has a incredibly large Binding of Isaac Let's Play series. And I meant it, he's close to 600 episodes.

There, there, Isaac, I'm sure Northernlion will stop torturing you eventually.

Alive and kicking

It's been a bit longer than a year but HEY CALM DOWN, I'M BACK.

I have some delicious video game reviews in the grill.

Including but not limited to: Binding of Isaac, Dungeons of Dredmor, League of Legends, some random shitty tower defense, etc.

Get hype.
