"The Binding of Isaac" has an item called the "Notched Ax" too.

But it's one of the worst items in the game
#87 to #7 - vany (08/31/2013) [-]
Actually, the worst item in the game is Toothpicks, it's marked as a tears up, but it actually only gives a +16% shot increase.

#122 to #87 - captainwow (08/31/2013) [-]
And I always used to get so excited when I found Toothpicks...

It's on the same level of horrible as Kamikaze.

Except that you can exploit a glitch that makes Kamikaze way too overpowered.
User avatar #9 to #8 - captainwow (08/30/2013) [-]
I feel like even with the wall glitch Kamikaze is ******* terrible. Worst part is, it's almost always in one of my golden chests when I get to The Chest.

If they made Notched Ax work like Guppy's Paw, where it had unlimited item power, then it'd probably be one of the best items.

Lemon mishap is the worst, hands down guys
User avatar #19 to #18 - captainwow (08/30/2013) [-]
Lemon Mishap is bad, but at least when I'm playing as Blue Baby it replaces The Poop.

But seriously, **** Lemon Mishap. Nothing feels worse than seeing that ******* lemon in an item room.
#21 to #19 - easternigguh (08/30/2013) [-]
Are you calling the poop bad? I've found an eternal heart inside poop once No seriously
User avatar #22 to #21 - captainwow (08/30/2013) [-]
I WISH I were that lucky with poop. I think I've found an Eternal Heart ONCE in 600+ hours of Isaac, and Spirit Hearts like 2 or 3 times.

User avatar #23 to #22 - easternigguh (08/30/2013) [-]
600 hours and 3 spirit hearts, yeah nope. I've played the game for 130 hours and I've gotten spirit hearts off the screen almost every run
User avatar #24 to #23 - captainwow (08/30/2013) [-]
I mean the item the poop, not the poop that's laying around. Getting one turd each room never pays out for me, at most I'll get a penny a floor.
User avatar #34 to #24 - thatnerdyguy (08/30/2013) [-]
This is about the same luck I get with it. I've been trying to beat the game with the Blue Baby lately to get that damn d6.
User avatar #121 to #34 - captainwow (08/31/2013) [-]
The D6 is such a beautiful item. Makes Isaac hands down best character since he starts with it every time after unlocking it.
User avatar #210 to #121 - repitem (08/31/2013) [-]
Though Cains Lucky Foot is useful too,plus i think he has some additional base damage when you begin.Also Judas,which,i heard,has a 1,2x damage multiplier and the book of belial,so he can reach the highest damage possible in the game
User avatar #223 to #210 - captainwow (08/31/2013) [-]
Cain and Sampson are kind of unusual since they both have one eye. Notice when Cain fires, it's always in a straight line, unlike when anyone else fires and it's left, right, left, right. This puts him at a slight disadvantage, since if he picks up Technology (or was it technology 2?) his other eye will appear to fire, but do no damage. There are a few other item interactions but I can't remember. The Luck Foot is really just good for pills, plus is range is crap.

Isaac starts with all even stats, high health and the D6, which is infinitely more useful than the Luck Foot. I like playing as Judas because he's such a challenge; he starts with 4 damage, but with the right modifiers, can make the game really easy. Just don't lose that one heart of health is all..
User avatar #224 to #223 - repitem (08/31/2013) [-]
Cain and Samson may or may not fire like that,but the technology 2 thing is a myth bro.If you read that up on a wiki its simple ******** ,the wiki is mostly wrong.Also Judas has his own modifier of 1.2x
User avatar #167 to #18 - XAssassin (08/31/2013) [-]
if you combine it with other things like technology it is really useful
User avatar #35 to #18 - thatnerdyguy (08/30/2013) [-]
How about Holy Water? Not only does it suck, but you have to get hit to use it!
User avatar #39 to #35 - easternigguh (08/30/2013) [-]
But its a passive so you dont have to give up a potential blue candle or a tammy's head to use it
User avatar #130 to #39 - captainwow (08/31/2013) [-]
BUUUUT

Items like Robo Baby and Demon Baby are made worse when they touch Holy Water, it turns them into Brother Bobby

No offensives capability like in Fetus or Pyro, but I might actually BUY it from the shop rather than groan and move on.

I can't detect sarcasm over the internet, are you just stupid or are you trying to make a joke?
#221 to #173 - bloodharbringer (08/31/2013) [-]
Excuse me? I was being totally serious. also why all the hate, that was a normal comment haha. that thing -is- a v-tol from saint's row, is it not?

I'm confused now :/
User avatar #227 to #221 - notstill (09/01/2013) [-]
I suppose if you want to get technical it's classified as a VTOL but that's not the VTOL that's in the game.

This just in: CoD: Ghosts will feature reloading by removing and replacing the battery pack on the Xbox One controller.
User avatar #123 to #11 - snoopyshouse (08/31/2013) [-]

User avatar #126 to #123 - thepyras (08/31/2013) [-]
It still runs on AA batteries, they're just less protruding.
User avatar #128 to #126 - snoopyshouse (08/31/2013) [-]
oh **** , really? i thought i saw a video showing there being a charging cable now, brainfart
User avatar #131 to #128 - thepyras (08/31/2013) [-]
There is, but it's a kit kindof like the one 360 controllers have with a rechargable battery pack and a cable, but I don't think they come with it.

I can't vote either, and it pisses me off. I know for a fact that I didn't vote up any actual porn outside **** (I've actually flagged it on occasion), and if I did vote up anything borderline, it was BEFORE that message came out. And because of that, admin vote-bans me without so much as a warning first. If people continuously do it, then sure. But it's way too harsh to just ban them outright.

And because it's an IP ban, my flat mate can't vote either. Hell, thinking about it, it could've been either of us that voted on the wrong thing.

Thumbed up the content and this thread for you. :3

I feel like you shoulda mentioned that notch was the creator of minecraft. Hence the name "notch"ed pickaxe. not a big deal though

Notched pickaxe is also a reference to the pickaxe that I currently HAve outside in my shed that I once used for chipping rock away.

The "Notched Pickaxe" was a Minecraft reference, Bethesda themselves didn't care that Notch was applying to trademark the name "Scrolls", but their lawyers were the ones who took action regardless of this (lawyers will be lawyers, they'll do anything to curry favor and make more money). Once the incident was finally resolved, the developers decided to add the Notched Pickaxe into the game not only as a reference but as a gesture of goodwill and to reassure fans that Bethesda and Mojang were on good/friendly terms and the whole thing was a big misunderstanding and they weren't now enemies or anything.
User avatar #66 to #63 - yusay ONLINE (08/30/2013) [-]
Wasn't it Zenimax, not Bethesda?
User avatar #71 to #66 - thundagawd (08/30/2013) [-]
No, Elder scrolls is Developed and published by Bethesda, who own the rights to the Elder Scrolls franchise. Zenimax owns Bethesda, id Software, Arkane studios, Tango Gameworks, MachineGames, and Zenimax Online Studios, but each branch has its own team of lawyers, so the case was between Mojng and Bethesda rather than between Mojang and Zenimax.
User avatar #73 to #71 - yusay ONLINE (08/30/2013) [-]
Nah, I looked it up. It was Zenimax that filed the lawsuit. www.ign.com/articles/2012/03/12/mojang-and-zenimax-settle-scrolls-lawsuit
#77 to #73 - thundagawd (08/30/2013) [-]
Huh, that's odd, some sources say Zenimax filed the lawsuit, others say Bethesda did. I guess in the end it doesn't particularly matter since they're technically just different branches of the same company, but you get the idea.
User avatar #183 to #63 - TheGodamnBatman (08/31/2013) [-]
Didnt Mojang plan to sue Bethesda for having the pickaxe in the game? Could be wrong read that somewhere but it might of been a rumour
User avatar #189 to #183 - thundagawd (08/31/2013) [-]
No, as I said in my former comment, the pickaxe was added in afterwards as a gesture of goodwill, apologizing to Notch for the trouble their lawyers caused. It was to show fans there wasn't any bad blood between the two companies. That, and you can't really sue a game for containing references to another game, more often than not. having your game referenced is a good thing, it directs attention to whatever they're referencing. (Not to mention if you could sue developers for making a game full of references, Gearbox would have gone bankrupt with Borderlands 2)

I managed to get to Stockholm without noclipping once when I was replaying Fallout 3 for the billionth time. Before the Megaton gates open you can jump on the wings (Used as gates) and then just keep climbing up, it's hard but it was worth it.
