The Binding of Isaac Not Bound for 3DS
Posted 29 February 2012 - 04:32 PM
As some know, the story behind Binding of Isaac is a young boy is locked in a basement by his mother who feels she has been instructed by God. Of course, the game draws upon the religious story of the same name. I'm sure many are aware of the story of Abraham being commanded by God to kill his son Isaac. Same thing except with a mother.
If you want to play The Binding of Isaac then you might as well play it on your PC. You won't be getting it on your 3DS anytime soon, if ever.
Does this affect your views on Nintendo in any way?

Nintendo has simply passed on this but no doubt many other games have been passed on in the past that were about the same level as Binding of Isaac, or even for smaller reasons. Hopefully as the industry continues to grow it will also mature to allow a fuller freedom of expression.

Now they are looking to bring the game to 1-2 Sony platforms!
This doesn't change my view of Nintendo at all. I mean, having a religious controversy with a story like this would be such a drag (Westboro Baptist Church, anyone?). Considering Nintendo is so family-friendly, this type of story would have had God-fearing parents everywhere fighting to get Nintendo banned forever :/
