This game is not that great.

I see it all over steam though... seems like everyone I game with has it.

It looks like a Zelda type game? I'll try the 360 version when it comes out.

It is a twin-stick shooter with roguelike elements. This should help you tell you about the game: http://fresh-pixel.b...n-of-isaac.html

Really loved this game when it came out. I'm happy to see it's going to get a second wind on consoles, especially after Nintendo nixed the 3DS port.

Edmund McMillen has put up a poll to seek players' thoughts on their platform of choice and the remake's look. This is your chance to make it known if you want the game to appear on 360, Wii U, and 3DS.

I could careless. I bought it on Steam back in the summer. I'm sorry, but if I have to screw around to Joy2Key or whatever the heck that program is, screw you

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

I'm pretty sure you had to use Joy2Key because it was a flash game, though I don't know enough about flash to know if you can implement gamepads.

Anywho, this is good news! Saw some screenshots and it looks great.

Poll results and new mock-up screens: http://edmundm.com/p...-results-are-in

Also, Edmund divulged new details in a recent interview:
-Nicalis will first remake the whole game (base Isaac plus Wrath of the Lamb) then Edmund will step in to add the new content.
-16-bit pixelated art style is here to stay. The old look will not be included.
-Isaac's pixel look currently a work in progress. His head size will actually be bigger because of the limited amount of detail the pixel look allows.
-Arcades will be made to be less of a time sink. Edmund is considering making slot machines explode more often.
-You will encounter new items that are sensitive to time, which will get players to finish a floor sooner.
-The new extra floor seems likely to appear after Sheol. The choice between going to Sheol or the Cathedral after The Womb/Utero will be made more interesting.
-There will not be "custom" challenge runs. However, there will be a character that touches on the concept of them.
-No in-game guide to tell you what items do.
-New ending.
-New secrets that will be hard to find.
-New "spider love" item that works similarly to the Skatole, only for, you know, spiders.
-Smooth, steady frame rate is a priority.
-Really crappy items like Lemon Mishap and Poop will be buffed. In the case of Lemon Mishap, its creep will stay onscreen longer.
-Very, very likely no new items that enable your character to fly. Edmund admits he overdid that with Wrath of the Lamb.

And in case you skimmed over it in the poll results post:
-The ability to save and resume your game will be in Rebirth.
-There might be a feature to screenshot your final look when you beat the game.
-Local co-op confirmed though there might be the possibility of drop-in support as well.
