The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

A look into how Monster Hunter Generations monster designs evolved


- began as lumbering fortress
- its castle-like shell had points that would bare a resemblance to cannons
- these would begin to fire projectiles as you got closer
- the player would climb Osutogaroa’s shell and break these cannons
- two Hydra heads would pop out of the water and surprise the player
- later designs focused on Osutogaroa’s deceptive tentacles and super-predator status
- It would lift its head-like tentacle above the water’s surface and launch itself out of the water to attack flying wyverns
- it would then bring these wyverns back to its den where it would dispose of its remains
- in some of the sketches for Osutogaroa’s habitat, the player is supposed to run through the different areas and slowly piece together the identity of the mysterious Elder Dragon
- this would happen by first seeing the giant fungus, then the bones, then the cave filled with water, then a small patch of land littered with bones and populated by fungus
- the monster was supposed to puzzle the Hunter’s Guild, with people unsure if it was real or legend

Hangin' with Mr. Koopman - NintenDaan Wednesday

Rainy week here, making it a rather gloomy time. That's alright though, because I can see a break in the clouds. That break Wednesday evening off! Of course, it's all thanks to the ray of sunshine himself, NintenDaan. He'll be here from now until around 10 PM ET. That's when I settle back in at GN headquarters and pick up where he leaves off.

Hope you all are having a splendid week so far. Enjoy your evening with Daan! I'll see you later tonight.
