I'm very pleased with my newest acquisition - Terraria! My friend and I were playing Minecraft the other day and got inscrutably bored (Minecraft, after a while, has a way of doing that) so he decided to buy me Terraria. It was quite a pleasant suprise to be honest. We proceeded to start playing. I've noted the inherent similarities with Minecraft, but I actually may prefer Terraria more due to the 8 bit, cooler armors, bosses, more combat, etc. It really is a fun game.
I find myself really enjoying it, though probably because we cheated pretty bad. My friend gave me full shadow armor, a Muramasa, and a ton of great accessories. After we went on a rampage and killed the Eye of Cthulu (mostly him, I just stood there stuck in a hole, trying to lob shurikens) and the Devourer of Worlds (I actually did help that time) he bought me a minishark, so I began stockpiling musket balls for no real reason. ("You've got over 6000 shots and you call ME a HAXX0R?")
We managed to take out Skeletron pretty easily, but we messed up the Wall of Flesh - I accidentally shot a monster carrying the guide doll and spawned him (soooo...). I got ahold of some necro armor, and we found the guy who reforges gear (so I got some rocket boots!). My friend spent over 700 gold reforging his accessories while I only reforged my Minishark and Cloud in a Bottle (Now it's a "Demonic Minishark" because I got the random bonus on top of the reforge, pretty cool). So, I'm really enjoying it and I've already played about 15 hours in the few days I've had it. I'm looking forward to killing more bosses here shortly. Thanks for reading!
