The Binding of Isaac:Afterbirth+

以撒的结合:胎衣+

《Game List for Nintendo Switch(二)》

以撒的结合,最早在ps4上的游戏,后来移植到了PC和Switch上。那到底谁是以撒呢?

Isaac /ˈaɪzək/

  • N an Old Testament patriarch, the son of Abraham and Sarah and father of Jacob and Esau (Genesis 17; 21–27) 以撒; 《旧约全书》中一长者,亚伯拉罕和撒拉之子,雅各布和以扫之父

    patriarch = patri + arch ==> patri-为父系的前缀,古时主要由男人统治,而arch本意为弓形,做后缀-arch表示领导统治的意思,所以理所应当这个词表示有地位,也就是长者。

patriarch /ˈpeɪtrɪˌɑːk/ TEM8

  • N-COUNT A patriarch is the male head of a family or tribe. (男性)家长; 族长; 酋长

    例:

    The patriarch of the house, Mr. Jawad, rules it with a ferocity renowned throughout the neighbourhood.

    那户人家的家长贾瓦德先生治家严苛,名闻乡里。

  • N-COUNT/N-TITLE A patriarch is the head of one of a number of Eastern Christian Churches. (基督教东派教会的)大牧首

再来说一下binding,bind作为名词是结合、捆绑的意思,而binding作为名词则是捆绑物,结合物。以撒的结合就是和以撒意识在一块的邪恶生物(evil creatures),游戏中我们需要面对并消灭它们。
