Facing the Gold Warden on Hard difficulty, the patterns reverted to the regular non-gold Warden attacks. That was weird.

All (non-keycard) containers have contained only health shards.
Which has lead to some silliness (I have 26 health on Easy and two or three sac items and haven't picked up any +hp perks).

Without any incredibility involved?

Oh is that what Life Harvester does. Wow.
Ok.
I picked it up because I didn't like the other two (I rarely play with incredibilities, because I forget they exist a lot) and the description did not tell me a whole lot :D

Neat, I didn't know about that Incredibility. A small mechanical change makes for a very different game.

Its base, there's an achievement for it.
But it sure did make things different.

Now that I think about it, combined with the Healing Shard Refiner it would mean healing pickups galore!

But what about 50% more shards that also heal you? :)

Bahahaha. Yeah, I didn't need it :D
I had the zombie sac item and it never came up.

Mental images of a player carving through the whole run with a rusty butterknife while wearing cement overshoes, just because the mech had way too much health to ever die.

Haha.
Now we need a Rusy Butterknife weapon.

Damage ##
Speed #####
XFactor ##########
+1 health restored on kill
Short dash (like Penumbra's secondary, only half as far).

Fixed that for you.

(after I fixed my knuckle-headed edit-instead-of-quote of your post; been a while since I made that slip)

While I'm not a tester, this seems to be the place for feedback so...

Does anyone else feel like the Banshee challenge room (I think that's what it's called) is absolutely absurdly broken?  Within a couple seconds of entering, literally the entire room is filled with projectiles to a density that's impossible to avoid, the game framerate absolutely tanks, and it's nearly a guaranteed death - I've only made it out of there alive once.

No worries, I've done that before on another forum. I wrote some custom CSS on my end to outline the "edit" button in red so I wouldn't be so quick to click it.

Edit:
I took a stab at doing it, but making it a primary weapon is beyond my capabilities, as the main weapon system needs to be "always active" in order to aim (otherwise you can only aim in the direction you're walking) but the dash effect needs to be "only when you fire" or you constantly dash (into the nearest wall) and I don't know how to reconcile that.

Aside from that, it's freaking hilarious.
