      ...and after putting 100 hours into the original Isaac and 100 into Rebirth, you can bet your ass that I will be buying this!

      If only they removed the obnoxious sounds from the rebirth version i would be soo happy...
      Why change the sounds from the original when they were so well done.
      And... sometimes i think the new sounds from the fly kids are from a son of one of the developers that wanted to be ingame...
