You heard her edition
Last thread: >>121361352
Adds new content, breaks old content, buffs and nerfs items.
Patch notes never
Azazel nerf is BUGGED, supposedly.
>What does "item" do?
>What's that HUD that people are using?
>What is "thing" on the post-it note?
Top row: Mom's Heart/It Lives, Isaac, Boss Rush
Middle row: Satan, ???, The Lamb
Bottom row: Mega Satan, Greed Mode, Hush
>What is Hush/Blue Womb?
New boss in a new area that opens when you beat Mom's Heart before the 30th minute.
>How to unlock The Lost?
Please note that the seeds are from Rebirth, and don't work in Afterbirth anymore.
1. Isaac must die to a Mulliboom in one of the Basement floors. Mulliboom seed: FHRD S1N1 (Go into the large room above the starting room. You can easily die from full health in here to them.) Or if not: JTMD EZPF (one is directly below - Normal difficulty)
2. Magdalene must die to her own bomb in one of the Caves floors. (Pyro Seed: ALFA 0NTZ)
3. Judas must die to Mom's Foot as Judas in one of the Depths or Necropolis floors. Good Seed: 8LDE 8XDX (Wait on using the Joker till the 3rd floor and avoid the devil rooms and you'll get the sacred heart. You also get the Sad Onion on the first floor.
4. Azazel must die to Satan in Sheol (his blood/laser form or hooves, NOT leeches or The Fallen). You must NOT use a seed.
Every post below, it is trolled.
Man this item is cool and fun
next patch removes it completely
Anybody else getting Isaac'd out? Most of the new items aren't doing much for me.
I finished everything in Greed Mode but the donations, which I refuse to do until there's a mod to fix that fucking nonsense in that makes it so you can only donate 1-5 coins a run.
Lilith got obliterated. She was OP in greed, doesn't mean you should fuck her life up in the base game.
Mega Satan's unlocks are the biggest slap in the face since Isaac's Heart being a Lost unlock. Especially since there's still no online co-op.
Hush was interesting once or twice. After that, the Armor mechanic feels too overtuned, making him a chore to fight.
I was really hoping for an actual new path, with a new Mega Boss. Now it's looking like the most we might get is a new hidden character. And we might not even get that, since it's got no sprites.
Nah. Never ruin good tears with Brimstone.
>Super excited, finally about to get bandage girl
blank card consumes diplopia Fuck you ed, I carried this card and spacebar item forever
>pay to play
>tfw forgot blood
I always forget something important when I'm done drawing. Goddamn it
Yeah, we already know it. As you donate with a character, it increases the likelihood of the machine blowing up by 1% per coin. So after you donate 50 coins with a character, the machine has a 50% chance of blowing up each time you donate a coin. The only way to keep donating more is to switch to a new character.
BUT THE COUNTER DOESN'T RESET, SO YOU STILL HAVE A CHARACTER WHO HAS A 50% CHANCE OF ONLY DONATING A SINGLE COIN AT THE END OF A GREED RUN.
This means if you switch every single time you get to that 50% roadblock, you will have only made it to 600 coins donated. Which means you have to get another 399 coins in with absolutely shit odds. Hence why that one autist had to gamebreak for 700 runs straight.
That's not the whole story. Every time you donate with one character, it lowers the chance to jam with the others.
I guess it's to stop you from playing one character exclusively, like Lilith.
Little Horn is so cute an innocent, you can see it in the excitement on it's face when you enter the room.
Bouncing around with it's toys everywhere and giggling at the sight of a new friend, it even sends a portal your way where you can play too!
Do you think Lil' Horn realized -- right before you banished it from existence -- how much their only friend in the world hated them?
Guys what does Pandora's box do in the Blue Womb?
>Wow it's fucking nothing.jpg
>Greed Mode with Samson
>Bloody Lust + Soy Milk + Death's Touch
That was fun.
is there some trick I'm not aware of to getting decent items
I swear it's like 95% of the items I get are complete trash and I'm resetting 2 or 3 floors in almost every time because it takes me 2 minutes to kill the fucking boss
>kill Monstro only with tears
>Literally use The Pinking Shear 7 times with Double Charge (thus spawning 14 bodies) on Greed
>Somehow his health still dropped extremely slowly
What the fuck, surely my Monstro DPS wasn't nearly as high as the one of FOURTEEN bodies.
If you're having trouble in Onan's slow down and take your time setting up your shots. With decent aim and knowledge of enemies' movement patterns you should be ok. Be sure to avoid items like double shot, cricket's body, piercing effects, as any tear that doesn't break on an enemy will count as a miss.
how I would fix the donation machine
200 coins: samson now holds the blind rage
300 coins: eve now holds the black feather
400 coins: judas now holds the judas' tongue
500 coins: XXX now holds the petrified poop
600 coins: lazarus now holds the suicide king
700 coins: azazel now holds the left hand
800 coins: eden now holds the 404
900 coins: maggy now holds the immaculate conception
999 coins: unlock the keeper
Who the fuck thought pixelshit was better than nice smooth graphics like we had before? And the filter sucks horse cock for trying to make the game look any better than the pixelated dog turn it is now.
Lazzy already starts with a pill, but that would be interesting
Actually that would be the best fucking shit. Congrats on being a better designer than Nicalis
>Get Poly first floor on Onan's Streak
>It kills me because it hits the wall after it goes through the enemies
I don't know what I expected.
>Half a heart in Onan's Streak
>Fire in my way
>It passes right through the fire
What I don't get is why they had only Cain get something for putting shit into the Greed machine and then 890 coins are useless and do absolutely nothing
I don't get it
I really really don't fucking understand
Especially since you put more shit into the donation box and you get stuff
What the fuck

>Spastic little retard punching bag walks into a red shit

I still revived with Guppy's Collar but I am so fucking buttdevestated right now
Why can't I open the blue womb? I seen it open before the patch but now it won't show up.
I'd like to thank Chaos for giving me a discount holy mantle and blue baby's only friend in the shop. This win wouldn't have been possible without him
Yeah, the Mega Satan rewards are retarded. No one plays 2 player Isaac. It's a one player game, and it's on the PC. I'm pretty sure Northern Lion is the only person ever to play it legitly
>Double fire rate against bigger targets
Wait, what? How does shooting in 45 degree angles double your fire rate when shooting forward and hitting with all shots does the same damage? It's not like this is Soy Milk where there's a damage decrease or anything, your power's still the same
What the fuck are you gonna need a huge ass enemy to shoot at? Gurdy?

Well I guess I could have a worse start.
You've got to randomly unlock it now like the rest of us. Don't worry, during your run when you're shooting poop you'll just get "You unlocked the Blue Womb" out of nowhere
Either that or unlock It Lives

THERE. NOW IT'S A TRANSFORMATION THAT, WHILE NOT AS POWERFUL AS GUPPY, IT'S PRETTY DAMN NIFTY.
FUCK, I SHOULD BE THE FUCKING IDEAS GUY AT NICALIS, MAYBE I COULD FIX THE OTHER SHITTY GODDAMN TRANSFORMATIONS AS WELL
>died in the chest during the BRAINS challenge

I had the stop watch so it was unbearable slow but it was going good until The Bloat fucked my shit up. It seems like BFF and some sort of bomb synergies would make things easier but I couldn't find any.
>first floor curse of the blind
>pick up Dunce Cap
Did I have my expectations set too high for this expansion? day 6 and I am already bored of it.
Greed mode is a one time adventure which Ed tried too hard to make unfun.
Azazel and Judas nerfed for no fucking reason.
No new combos or interactions except with OP items that did not need them. BOI Technology could be upgraded after WotL to Brimstone levels, in here it remains as pathetic as ever.
No reason to touch Maggie, ??? or Lazarus, ever.
New rooms are bullshit.
Item pools are too full of items, new items almost seem exclusive to greed mode.
I wanted a combo system, fuck you Nicalis, having all items interact with brimstone and epic fetus IS NOT A COMBO SYSTEM. Transformations are ass.
Lilith is almost certainly no fun to play outside greed mode.
Oh boy... Fruit Cake... It's the Daily Run and I have Fetus Bomb Tears. Do I see what the fuck happens or roll it for something good?
You know the real problem with Afterbirth?
Edmund had too much faith in Nicalis.
He saw that Florian did a good job with both vanilla and Wrath, and that Nicalis did a great job with Rebirth, so I'm just assuming that he left them to development for Afterbirth.
They probably gave him a date, thinking they could get shit done by Halloween, and completely shat the bed when they realized that they couldn't. And instead of asking Ed for a time extension, which he probably would've been fine with, they shoved it out the door and said "eh we'll give you patches at a later date"
I'm still having fun with the xpac, and I like some of the cool new shit added,
including greed mode for fun runs, but I'm going to be wary for the next xpac and I'm hoping Ed will keep a closer eye on them as well.
This, and the new transformations are all awful
>You can fly and have two black hearts, even though you could already fly before!
>You can have a free heart container!
>You can have permanantly fucked up shots!
I'm mainly skeptical about Nicalis as a developer. I remember people on /v/ being extremely fucking worried about the game since Nicalis has a reputation for ruining amazing games. They need to get their shit together after this or they're going to lose a lot of fans.
>Edmund McMillen defense crew
That said, honestly I'd like to believe you. I just wish he were honest with this and whip them in shape or something
And remove all the God-awful tiny rooms, holy shit they suck so much

>Drugs is literally just a free pill and that's it
>Poop is extremely specific in its uses and will likely require Blank Card + Card Against Humanity to truly abuse
What the fuck were they even doing?
I actually came here to post something like this.
I really enjoyed Lilith at the start, but the nerf made her really un-fun to play.
That, in combination with all the bad items in the item pool and changes to existing rooms like spiked item rooms and all the fucking useless ass switches, now makes me feel like this expansion was only a cash grab.
Why even nerf things that have been around for so long? It's not like the game is harder, it's just that none of the new items are fun to pick up and use.
>>Bob is unbelievably specific and your only reward is a fucking poison creep that Anemic or Aquarius could already do
Or several buddies even, and with BFF they do it better
>Tumor fucking punishes you for collecting Familiars by giving you permanent The Wiz instead of a triple shot like its appearance would imply
Would be fucking fine if you could still shoot forward, but no that would be too fun.
Welp, first attempt. Was really lucky to get Prayer Card on the first floor and then 1 + 1 in the shop there. Made it so I literally swam in items and batteries. Didn't even need any Damage up or anything. Also Revenge Fly to kill everything safely.
Pick one thing to delete from Rebirth (Afterbirth included, of course)
Can be as narrow as a single room or as broad as an entire game mode
Don't be the faggot who thinks he's funny for saying the entire game or the stats screen or whatever
You are a literal fucking retard that didn't even think about looking up what the "whore of babylon" was in the bible you fucking dipshit
here's a hint
eve was from genesis, the first book, the beginning. the whore of babylon is mentioned in revelations, the final book foretelling the future
There's a lot of shit in Afterbirth I'd get rid of but first are the small fucking rooms
I'd also love to get rid of bad game design like enemies in safe rooms, but small rooms need to fucking die
>The simply ebin steak arg hit a new breakthrough
>Involves x number of players hitting 999 in the greed machine
Haha, that's so epic, having x amount of players grind in an overhyped gamemode that gets old fast!
I actually had a very fun day playing co-op Isaac with a friend. It can be a good time. Unfortunately the situation we did that in was pretty unusual and I doubt it'll ever happen again, so yeah.
Also having to use a controller sucked.
THOSE FUCKING ROOMS THAT ARE JUST TNT BARRELS WITH A BUTTON AND YOU LITERALLY HAVE TO TAKE THE HIT NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, YOU CAN'T EVEN BOMB THE FUCKING DOOR
WHAT KIND OF RETARD THINKS THAT SHIT IS OK
Greed got his shit wrecked.
He's actually not that hard if you have enough Dakka.
I dedicate this run to satan who gave me 4 black hearts in a row. Also to Daddy Long Legs who told more than a few bosses to go fuck themselves.
>Upon picking up enough heart pickups, Isaac gains a permanent angelic familiar. Possible familiars include:
>The first and second familiars will spawn after picking up 15 heart pickups each. The third, fourth, and fifth familiars will spawn after picking up 30 heart pickups each. No further familiars will spawn.
Ed, half of these aren't even fucking babies
well that was quick. took me longer to post this than the actual fight did. I even had a 2 of hearts that I didn't use.
>playing nerfed Az because I didn't get Lilith yet
>get tech X from key room

Only works if you have flying/speed/small hitbox but you have to run to the bottom middle of the map where the gap is and you'll be fine.
>mind you, having one or more of those are pretty unlikely, fucking thanks Edmund
Source? Also, as in just hearts in healing or +health items?
Pls tell me this isn't real I love his music
>start Greed Mode with Cain
>get Godhead in my first item room
Welp, that was pretty fucking easy. Was trying to maximize damage, but I think I did alright.
6VCS 0G00is the seed if you want to try.
I wouldn't know, it's rare as fuck. When I read Sword Protector I thought it meant the Attack Fly. Basically all of them are angel fetus and then Holy Water or a Relic bursting out of your womb to say hello
Maggy would benefit the fuck out of this

I picked the jumpers because of that one bug which still hasn't been patched where they fly across the room to fuck your ass, it makes me angry just writing it down.
pic related, something else that makes me angry
Yay. It's more items, more combos, another game mode, and another character. How is that not worth 11?
Unless of course you're like this guy and you get buttmad over balance changes.
Most of the music I ported to Rebirth because its 10/10 and I prefer MOST of DB music over the new one.
Wait till content is finished up and released. He's deliberately holding back items etc.
why do these rooms exist
they make me want to break things
Pride has shitty attacks because he believes too highly in himself to win to actually try. He fucks around and doesn't even deliberately attack you in belief he'll win
Super Pride is a homosexual
You can continue to love Danny B's music, because it's great stuff. Just don't get confused and think he's a good person. Ed/Tommy let him retain the rights to his music AND gave him sales royalties, and he repaid them by not relicensing his music for the PS ports, just because he decided he didn't like Ed anymore.
The SJW stuff is true, during the Ferguson race riots he was tweeting 24/7 about how the cops getting injured had it coming to them and how the rioting/looting going on was karma
someone help me I literally can't see shit
>get one of these as the lost
>it's the poop use item
this is why this shit is still broken, he pays people like me off with sacred heart in the next room

Consider this XXXXXXXXL Challenge DONE
What a goddamn shame
Starting to? At least the Nazis would let you join 'em. SJWs will shitpost at you forever like the one-track robots they are if you say anything even remotely "offensive".
>buggy and broken as shit
I know this is hard to understand, but you only see a lot of buggy shit because people are going to post it online when it happens. I've played Afterbirth for like 80 hours so far and ran into like 2 bugs, one of them being Azazel being nerfed into the ground on accident.
I swear to god if Jake Kaufman turns out to be some super asshole piece of shit I'm going to swear off supporting people who make great music for indie games
Jake is still a good guy, r-right?
It's because brimstone counts as a stupidly fast rate of fire while charging while tech is much slower.
Tech 1 and 2 needs a buff since it's almost always a large decrease in damage per second versus regular tears.
>trying to unlock the lost
>actually manage to get brimstone as azazel
>have next to no health, but feels incredible having a strong attack again
>die because I fucked up
Brimstone + Anti-gravity + Spoon Bender is pretty wacky.
Not the tiny spiders. The spiders that shit sacks or shit bullets everywhere.
They just skitter around running away from you, OCCASIONALLY running into you, and once they get low on health, they just do whatever the FUCK they want.
Pattern is "movement in a random direction, stop, movement in a random direction"
If you are within a certain distance to a spider, the spider will move in your direction instead of randomly
Just got back.
>Credit card immediately purchases all items.

I.E. Credit Card actually deletes the item being sold and spawns an exact copy of it as a pickup/pedestal item
It almost looks like he rushed a bit to get it out on halloween, I'm a little curious how something could be so cleanly missing from the game.
Also fuck all the anti-datamining whines about, Does Edmund store his porn in the datafiles or something?

Ultra Greed and Hush both scale with your damage output.
So when do you think Ed will arbitrarily unlock the next set of content?
Unless you have the spider mod. It's basically the same thing.
This is the dark side of difficulty scaling. Clearly shows that Whilst making difficult levels is easy for mcmullen, he can't design a properly difficult boss to save his life.
okay, edmund, look
you need to pay the slightest bit of attention to your champ bosses when designing rooms
i literally lost five precious cat lives to fucking monstro, because i'm pretty sure that the gray champ version that doesn't do the high-jump is exactly half the width of the room, and since he wouldn't high-jump, i spent most of the fight just hoping he didn't decide to vomit in my face (which he did, five times)
this is not skill-based gameplay, here; this victory was due to luck, and the fact that he spent the whole attempt doing his little short hops instead of vomiting.
pride seems to be a graven image/scribble of isaac himself, he looks so out of place compared to everything else
His X attack just seems to be a continuation of a childs shitty scribble of themselves.
No idea about the bombs though

This expansion feels so lame. Like everything feels so lacking. The new enemies just have ai thats just slightly modified pre-existing patterns, some are even just recolors of old enemies. The majority of the new items is more useless shit. The synergies they advertised on the blog were literally only the new ones added. There's no new chest like area, hush is just thrown in after it lives for no reason. The button areas just serve to waste time or frustrate. Overall it just feels like im playing a slightly more frustrating version of rebirth. Greed mode was alright for a short time but now I'm done with it. Compared to WoTL or Rebirth release there is just a complete lack of a sense of discovery because theres really nothing to discover. Unless he's holding back a massive amount of content for no reason I have no desire to play further.
I'm with you there, lad. There was no sense of "I can't put this shit down" that I got from Afterbirth that WotL and Rebirth gave me.
>Unless he's holding back a massive amount of content for no reason
He is, because muh ebin ARG.
Why does my game crashes after i use a pill? There's no way for me to know what pill this is too, because it crashes every time
Why is ed still holding the new character Keeper hostage? Is it just not finished or is he being a faggot again?
I was playing release before this and I only noticed one bug and it was the crash bug after you beat mom's heart
now it's like I can't go a single room without finding some new bug
Tbh I haven't encountered any bugs, albeit I play pretty casually. But they said the greed machine (109) was a bug, the items not being in the game were a bug, now Azazel nerf. Sounds like bullshit to me.

Need I go on? If you want more just go look at the bullshit that is tiny boss/miniboss room and some of the near unavoidable damage puzzle rooms.
>Not every item is polyphemus-tier, boohoo
Most of the items you posted are neutral at worst
Mega Bean is a solid active item that freezes and damages enemies all at once
Minecrafter essentially gives you near-infinite amounts of bombs to use for secret room/tinted rock bombing
The Wiz is a tears up and anyone who can't aim diagonally is a bitch
GB Bug demolishes bosses since it applies a different status effect every frame
Milk isn't a holy water reskin you retard, do you even know what you're complaining about
He starts with a key, like how Isaac starts with a bomb and Judas starts with 3 cents.
With Cain, you can walk right, check your good item room, and restart if you don't like it. Repeat til you get a good item.
Fruit cake almost fucked me. Don't take it with fetus
>implying fruit cake, missingno and chaos isn't the best combo in the game
If you go for angel rooms on current daily you'll get holy mantle. Not like you particularly need it to win, daily is piss easy with quad shot, cricket's head, synthoil, lots of black and soul hearts and you only need to beat heart anyway.

Everyone's starting with like two items now, buff these characters
I think it's a complete diversion from the main story that has nothing to do with 'Isaac's mother' and explains how Greed/Keepers/etc. are just Isaac. It's a new spin off timeline like how the Cathedral timeline is Isaac coming to terms with his sins and the Sheol timeline is Isaac losing himself in his imagination
Lust Mode: Ultra Lust is pregnant and has her own Conception ability
Edited the Guardian challenge run to see if a character who could only use the Spear of Destiny would be viable.
Explosive enemies are pretty much undodgable, you'd need a longer range. A Mom's Knife with low range would work better.
The Guardian challenge also has a bunch of hard-coded stuff surrounding it. The character is an obvious one. If you try to blindfold Isaac and give him Spear of Destiny in another challenge slot, he won'r get the spear. Nice that they decided to make this challenge unique with this stuff.
Hardmode doesn't affect as much as you think
It lowers the drop rate of hearts, makes large rooms more common, increases the chance for curse floors, and makes champion enemies more common.
Do you ever wish you were a pizza being eaten by a cute boy having a wank?
No, people unpacked the files and the Challenges can be easily edited through a xml file.
The hard coded shit is probably in the EXE, so that ain't changing unless someone digs in there.
>He's deliberately holding back items etc.
Is he? He said there were 120 new items being added in Afterbirth.. There are exactly 120 new things, if you include the new Trinkets.
