  1. Yeah, I’m one of the people who bought that game and boosted it to the top 10 list. I must say, it was one of the best 7.50 I ever spent.

    The game is like a cross between Minecraft and Metroidvania. They took everything that Minecraft lacked (better combat, progression, bosses) and threw it in along with the things Minecraft did well anyway such as cave exploration and crafting weapons and armor. It’s a really fun game (especially in multiplayer), and I strongly encourage anyone to check it out.

    As a side note, to be fair, it’s not that similar to Minecraft, but the comparison is too easy to make.

  2. I’ve not actually tried Terraria, but RPS have put up a few nice articles about it and it seems to be generating a lot of love, so it’s only a matter of time before I take the plunge.

    Sadly, with the package deals on sale on Steam I seem to have hit a tipping point where I won’t even pick up excellent super cheap/free games (Proun would be a perfect example) as I just don’t have the time to play everything worth playing. Like Bill said in his piece on plowing through games for reviews, I hardly ever play the same game twice any more because that would mean that I’m missing out on some other ‘must play’ title – thank god I don’t like sports games so I can at least cross that entire genre off my list!

    I remember when I was younger spending hundreds of hours with FF VII, Baldur’s Gate 2 and Counter Strike – now it’s rare that a game gets more than a few hours playtime and there are still dozens of games in my steam list that have never even been installed and in all truth probably never will I guess I should enjoy one or two great games at a time and just accept that I’ll never try the majority but then I feel like I’m missing out and god forbid you should miss a Zeitgeist game like Minecraft (which I totally did miss) or you feel like a gaming pariah.
