After playing Binding of Isaac for countless hours, I have to say I really enjoy it. Edmund McMillen never runs short on his imagination. However, I can't help but feel that it could use a multiplayer option, particularly if there ever happens to be Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of it.

Here's the ideas:

1. Multiplayer modes: These could range from typical deathmatchs where players try to kill each other in various dungeons as well as coin battles where everyone tries to get the most coins. There could even be a mode where you can only harm other players with a brimstone power-up that you and the other players try to reach for.
2.Co-op: Basically, you and another player have an attempted story mode run. Since you have a second player, assistant upgrades such as Meat Boy and Rainbow Baby would have to be disabled. Also, both players would have to exit a room at the same time to move on.

Thoughts?

Binding of Isaac: Multiplayer Idea


New Design and everything

So the website apparently got redesigned. I must say this is quite convenient. Honestly, I think the new format makes it a lot more user-friendly.

Who knows, I might just upload a flash or something.


My thoughts on Egoraptor

2011-05-01 22:11:48 by xboxbob11

I don't mean to sound cynical or anything but I honestly feel that Egoraptor's influence has worn thin on me at this point. I like to watch his flash movies for the sake of entertainment and all, but I don't want to feel like I'm pressured to watch them. There's so many ways that people can make fun of you and all.

I mean, what if Lady Gaga caught him parodying her work? Or Ke$ha, Kanye West, or any famous person for that matter of fact.

What I truly feel is that fame these days is not something to be bullied over. Besides, Egoraptor is already talented enough as it is.

It truly amazes me how influential Jimi Hendrix is to this day. I have been so engrossed with his music over the past few days that I practically think about each and every one of his songs from time to time.

Also, it might sound weird, but listening to the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience has helped me to tremendously improve my guitar playing. I now fully understand why Jimi Hendrix has been hailed by Rolling Stone magazine as the greatest guitarist of all time. It is because Jimi was so gifted when it came to expressing himself through guitar playing.

So, here's to Jimi Hendrix: a truly legendary musician that continues to inspire us all.

Kurt Cobain's suicide could have been prevented

2010-10-09 09:49:34 by xboxbob11
Updated

After all the time I have had in my life to analyze the whole band career of Nirvana and whatnot, I have come to this conclusion based on my knowledge of the band that once was as well as what I have learned in life so far.

We all know that Kurt Cobain killed himself with a shotgun, thus negatively affecting an entire generation of musicians and music listeners alike. But what about what led him to commit this unnecessary act? Well, turns out Kurt had the pressures of fame wearing down on him from time to time. The problem was not that he did not care; rather, he was too hard on himself.

Given my experiences, I can safely say that a heinous act like suicide is pointless to any truly influential individual, just as masturbation is pointless to anyone who prefers actual sex. Sure, Michael Jackson had the pressures of fame get to him from time to time, but Michael also persevered these fame-involved pressures long enough to accomplish some unbelievably amazing things before he died unexpectedly. Who knows what Kurt Cobain could have gone on to accomplish if he had lived.

Thoughts about the whole Justin Bieber situation

I will say this as honest and openly as I can. I have nothing against Justin Bieber at all. As hard as that is to believe for a lot of people out there, I have found that Justin Bieber is really nothing more than just an innocent teenage celebrity with serious star power.

I'm sure a lot of you out there would probably be infuriated with jealousy upon seeing this music video and realizing how annoyingly popular Justin Bieber truly is. For the most part, I don't blame people for giving in to those feelings of hatred, but ask yourselves this: didn't beloved performers such as Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder receive a lot of attention during the years of their youth?(I certainly know that was the case for Michael) Perhaps what I am really suggesting is that this whole "Bieber Fever" thing has been nothing more than a major trend that we have found ourselves caught up in.

Personally, I do not prefer to listen to Justin Beiber's music. Maybe the kid does have remarkable talent, or perhaps he is just trying too hard.

Also, if it helps, here's a link to a review for a song involving Justin Bieber, carried out by pop song reviewer ToddintheShadows: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/video links/teamt/tis/tpsr/23999-ep-06-eenie -meenie


All about 'The Room'

2010-09-09 13:01:05 by xboxbob11
Updated

By this point I have pretty much caught on with the current popularity of 'The Room', also known as Tommy Wiseau's "masterpiece". Apart from the awesome flash game based on it here on Newgrounds, I also noticed the Nostalgia Critic had reviewed the actual movie as well.

What do people find fascinating about this movie exactly? Perhaps it is because 'The Room' is so hilariously bad as a standalone movie that we can't help but have a blast making fun of it.

Besides who can forget the line of "You're tearing me apart, Lisa!!!!!"?

Fear of a Furry Takeover

2010-09-05 12:28:59 by xboxbob11

If you mention the term "furry" to any typical individual on the internet, chances are that they will be either (a)confused, (b)disgusted, or (c)horrified. This begs the question: "Why have people made such a big deal out of this whole "furry" thing?"

My Thoughts:
I believe that there are people who are bound to be uncomfortable with furries simply because of the various perversions associated with them. However, no one is forcing you to look at any of their artwork and/or animations.

Besides, I have found, through my experiences, that not all furry artists are exactly the same. Some might specialize in inflation pics while others happen to be dedicated animators with actual purposes in mind.

Perhaps what drives certain individuals to become furries is a unique means of expression. What are the odds that someone who personifies themselves as a fox or a wolf believe that what they are doing is not strange at all?

In conclusion, if you do not like furries at all then I would just advise you to stay away from them. Otherwise, encounter them at your own risk.

The only real way I can get myself to listen to their music is by laughing at how hilariously horrible it is. Their song "House Party" pretty much sums up how much they are willing to irritate music listeners.

Thankfully, for us sane individuals, there's the Black Eyed peas.

Thoughts on 3OH!3



Anyone who has recently searched 'We Are the World' on Youtube has probably come across the modern rendition of it that was created to support Haiti.

To me this modern rendition represents a coming-together moment of some of the most well-known artists of today. Despite any use of auto-tune or the rap segment, it is really nothing more than people united for a common cause just as it was for the original version.
