I tried this a while back and had a blast. I'd love a chance to play it again, without it being a trial or anything.
From what I've seen/heard/played of Terraria, it seems like a pretty fun game. Just haven't gotten around to picking it up since I have a backlog of games I am working through.
Man I was surprised how much I loved Terraria. I even enjoyed it more than Minecraft! It's such an addictive game, always just need to complete one more task before taking a break, then one more, then one more.
I love how the bosses worked, how you could summon them when you were ready to fight them (though I'd usually get demolished my first time against them.)
That collectors edition looks awesome, it would be an awesome thing to have on my shelf as a tribute to one of the best games I've played in years.
its so much more than a 2d minecraft. The levels of creativity in that game go beyond just building houses. One of my favorite parts of the game was the ability to build navigational tools like the claw, or find things like grav potions. It was little things like that which made the game so enjoyable. And co-op was ridiculously fun, especially because there's lots of customization options for your character. Heavily under-rated and and much more than poor-man's minecraft
I allways wanted a pixeled 2D sprite with a lightsaber, where is my copy now?
Never tried it, but looking to get into it.
Ummmmmmm... Dan is awesome? (Does that count as bribery...?)
I've never played Terraria before but the game does look excellent and thoroughly enjoyed Toby Turner videos of it.
Would like to try it out on the PSN
Have to say the game looks interesting and I think it's fun if you play together or something.
Well.. i own the game on PC. The 360 version seems pretty good but if i wanna play with my wife..i got to pay for 2 copies so i'll give it a better try later this year :)
I have the same feeling as I did about minecraft when it first came out. Not sure if I would enjoy it but eventually I just dove in and loved it. I suspect this game may end up doing the same thing!
Wish i could play this so bad! I have a PS3 and loved Minecraft but it was always missing a little something that I couldn't put my finger on. Terraria looks like it would scratch that unknown itch for me! Hopefully I will be able to scrounge some change together after rent and bills are payed :(
This game has always peaked my interest, but never took a try. "Sandcastle" games like this generally provide endless amounts of fun and I wonder how fun and elaborate of a Halloween-themed level or Martian World I could create. Everybody seems to praise it and hopefully I can redeem a copy to share the same enjoyment and experience!
I have yet to play Terraria, although I've always heard great things about it. I've somewhat attempted Minecraft which was difficult for me to get used to, maybe because 3D games on a smartphone just don't work. When my friends told me about a 2D game that had basically the same day/night cycle and crafting options, I was immediately on board. Except I'm broke. As a college student with a part-time/minimum-wage job trying to support himself and his family, I don't have a lot of cash to spare on my gaming addiction. I'd love a free copy so I can finally get in on the crafting craze that's captured the crowds of crazy crustaceans!
Terraria is an absolutely wonderful game. Combining the best of random generation, exploration, building, crafting, and combat, it is entertaining from the first slime kill to the tenth time you kill the Twins. It has my favorite progression system out of all the games I've played in the last 5 years, and things get even more wild when you add in a few friends.
One of the best memories I have was when I had 4 friends with me, farming out the wall of flesh. Summoning the Wall of Flesh requires sacrificing the guide, the NPC who introduces you to the mechanics of the game, by cruelly throwing his voodoo doll into the lava.
This game is incredibly vast, and can simply eat up your time like no other. If you have never played it, I strongly recommend you try it out for yourself! Watching videos and hearing about it just is not the same. Just remember, the night is dark and full of terrors.
