Also, on the note of videos of the game:

It's not an LP, but it is unique.  I certainly didn't expect it.  I'm not actually sure how I found it.

Huh.  I've never seen that happen before.  A bug of some sort, is it?  Or an oversight in the way the things work?

You tell me.

Every hit (except one) I took during a teleport.  Took under 3 minutes to kill myself.

His health is stupid high at spawn (40+) and it regenerates when he enters a new room. Is that actually a feature somewhere? I could have sword Very Easy was not that trivial.

Health isn't supposed to regenerate, no. Perhaps they're using mods.

Later it didn't seem to be regenerating, but I swear, those first couple of rooms he was regenerating hp.

My overall impression of the guy is that he does speed runs of games because he can. He'd never played SR before that video and likely hasn't played since.

Oh, and 45 minutes for 5 floors is super standard. I did it last night. I had a few pauses (responding to IMs) and did some optimization back-tracking, but total run time was still about 48 minutes.

If only I had recorded the run.
Speedrunning SR actually sounds like a lot of fun, and I have some ideas for categories and whatnot.

Yeah, there's definitely some speedrunning possibilities.
I'd say that any real run would have to be done on Normal. V.Easy gives you too many hitpoints to spend on sac items.

I was thinking each difficulty could be it's own category, and then there could be a differentiation between any% and 100% in that floor skips, if they even exist anymore, wouldn't be allowed in the latter.

And now I'm just imagining a Misery Mode run and tearing up a little.

edit: what am I thinking, 100% would obviously be full clearing all floors

Here's 2 LPs I watched recently:

Ethervil is back with 3 more episodes. This time he decided to try his luck with my Roulette mech. (The torpedo cannon kinda stole the show on that one though. :P)

And there's 2 episodes from a brand new player. Discovery and wonder is the theme as this Isaac player explores the confines of the Megalith.

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't had much time for watching videos lately, but I checked out that new player. He seems to be really enjoying the game, which is good to see. I might try and check out those Ethervil videos some time too. At least the ones featuring the mechs that are going into the next build. I might get some useful feedback there.

I finally found time to check out one of Ethervil's runs...yay!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9xGltg8W1w

This run features one of Logorouge's mech mods, The Behemoth. Looks like a powerful run so far, with a combination of The One and AllInTheWrist proving super strong -- although AllInTheWrist is pretty broken for an early game perk, it's been moved to a much later perk tier for the next build. I believe that The Behemoth starts the game by giving you -1 to damage taken, so it's kind of like the upcoming Warhog expansion mech. I'm expecting this to be a pretty successful run based on how things are going so far.

I'm slightly unhappy that The One drained most of the challenge away from the run, but he still had fun at least. I'm just getting worried that the transition to Hard mode will be brutal.
