The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth  



Binding of Isaac: Rebirth's Jar lets you capture hearts like Link does fairies

Some 150 new items are being added to Binding of Isaac for Rebirth, and as the game inches toward completion, Edmund McMillan is dutifully trotting several of them out one at a time to let us know what we can expect. The most recent item shown is the Jar, and it's for the player that follows the Scout's Motto -- be prepared.

With the Jar equipped in the item slot, players can collect up to four additional hearts in it once their life is completely full. Once they run into a particularly dangerous snafu, the Jar can be used to drop the hearts on the ground, essentially acting as portable health. Maybe it conjures thoughts of how Link traps fairies in bottles in the Zelda games until he needs to unleash them for some much-needed healing.

McMillen says that while the Jar isn't game-breaking, he's excited to see what scenarios players can concoct to take full advantage of it. It probably won't be long before that's a reality, as he also said that Rebirth is in the "heavy tuning/polish phase," and is "nearing completion." Let's go ahead and get this in our lives as quickly as possible, okay?

The Jar has appeared in the basement! [Binding of Isaac]

We played Binding of Isaac: Rebirth because we haven't had a good cry in a while

Max and I started playing The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth because it's a good-ass game, and we like to do gaming. Max has actually never played any iteration of Binding of Isaac before, so I let him go first, knowing that I'd only have to wait a few minutes before my turn.more

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth teased for Wii U

Fans of The Binding of Isaac have long wanted the game on 3DS and while that'd be great to see one day, I'd be just as happy to to have it on Wii U. Which might actually happen! I know! Nicalis uploaded this video yesterday and that blip at the beginning sure is a Wii U overlay. There's also this Twitter exchange between designer Edmund McMillen and Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez.
