Terraria

Ohh nice, you're further along than I figured. Remember to buy something from the dryad before going to the corruption. I don't think a gold pickaxe will cut it.

Remember this about the corruption, shadow orbs repeat, 1, 2, 3 then back to 1.

Spoiler:

1 - Shadow orb destroyed - calls forth a meteor (appears with 1-2 days I think not always immediate)
2 - Shadow orb destroyed - nothing
3 - Shadow orb destroyed - summons Eater of the world. (Boss #2)

If you want to prepare for the endgame, use signs to mark the locations of all of the evil altars.

Anyone still playing this? Or have a server up somewhere? Just curious, I recently started dabbing in it again and was just curious if anyone was still out there playing.

I haven't played it in a long time...but after re reading some things on the thread it has inspired me to go back to it. Made a hardcore character (mostly because I never had before) While looking for a decent place to set on some kind of hut I fell and died...that poor character only lasted 3 minutes. I made a graveyard/shrine just for him.

LOL! I tried that once too, and lasted about as long as you did. I couldn't imagine building a character up really big and then losing him. I'd probably cry. lol.

I might be interested in playing online a bit. Shoot me a msg sometime. Also, are you in the Terraria group?

As far as I can remember I am. Is there a server that GWJ uses or does someone usually just set one up and invite?

Several of us have run servers in the past. I don't believe there are any active ones right now. I am happy to get a new one going if you're interested though.

I still jump on little bit here and there, so if you ever do start up a server, I'll hop on from time to time. I'm more of a digger/builder/organizer when it comes to Terraria. I like to explore too, but I have this strange addiction to digging/clearing and organizing stuff. I know, I'm weird. It would be pretty cool if a few of us would be able to contribute to building/exploring a brand new map.

I would love to start from scratch too, but my only thing is that I would totally have to bring my nightmare picaxe over. It's taken me like a month to collect enough demonite ore for that thing! lol.

I got this during the last steam sale and put a couple hours into it. Mostly digging and building a sweet castle. Then I found out I could turn stone into bricks. Crap. Time to rebuild my castle.

Last night I read the starter guide on the wiki, got frustrated with my current game and decided to restart with a new character and world. For about 10 minutes I regretted it, until I found this sweet cave system. I spent about 2 ho... OMG KILLER WORMS... urs exploring.

So easy to get lost in this game and lose so many hours. So crazy.

I stopped playing a while ago because I hit a wall with bosses. I can't play online anyway, because I'm playing on the mac...

Tried hosting a server again for old times sake... Can't remember how to do it. [le sigh]

Going to necro this thread for a bit for the console release. http://www.giantbomb.com/the-makers-of-terraria-have-added-quite-a-few-things-for-its-upcoming-console-release/17-6981/

Definitely a fun game to figure out and I hope some of these changes come back to the PC. The developer said he'd stop development of it, but obviously that didn't really happen, so *fingers crossed*

Okay, let me pose a hypothetical. Say I am considering doing an update for the PC version of Terraria... In the event that such a thing were to take place, what would be some things that you would be interested in seeing?

I'll buy this the day it hits the 360; considering how much fun my kids have had with split-screen Minecraft, the release of Terraria should occupy months of their time.

My daughter's going to flip. Split screen Terraria with daddy on the xbox 360? I must get this. Anyone see anything like realistic release date?

I play with her now sometimes with her on my wife's laptop, but i know my daughter can much more easily handle the xbox controller.

Damn, I'm looking forward to this alot.

I saw the game on Ps3. But there wasn't any price, or anyway to get the game.

Was there a release day ?

February looks to be the month to lol forward to. There is mention that there will be a final update for pc'rs around the same time (sorry no link). I intend to pick this up for x box, I'm more than happy to friend everyone interested in 8 man co op.

The pc dev said he was "considering" doing another update, but I don't think there are any hard plans yet. The console versions are coming from a different studio, though, so even if there is another pc update it may not necessarily have all the new goodies from the console versions.

Terraira has now come out for the PS3 and Xbox for $15. Currently it is on sale for 75% on Steam, but normally it's $10. A Vita version is also coming, but no release date is yet set.

Has anyone bought the console versions, and if so how does it play?

I heard they supported 4 player split screen. I will add the demo to my download queue.

It does have 4 player split screen and up to 8 players in mp.

I like playing it with a controller tbh. All I did was the tutorial to get familiar with the controls, but I can see myself putting in more time with the controller than the m&k. And a Vita version? Sweeeeet.

Currently on vacation, but will buy this on 360 as soon as I get home and suspect I will burn many hours on this with the kids.

This. My daughter is going to go nuts. Greek Easter is late this year, probably smart if I wait til end of April to download this, when we get 2 weeks off....

Thanks VERY much for posting that this is out.

I assume it will split for just 2 players as well? (xbox 360)

Yup. Or three. Or four.

So my cousin has been trying to get me to play this with him on PC for a while now. But I'm kind of confused as to how this is going to work. I'm assuming that this is only a split screen on-the-couch multi-player game? Or are there servers?

Servers and you can take any one of your characters on and offline across any number of worlds you choose to bring that character to.

They go over what I think is the most important parts of the controls in the beginning of the video.

Those controls look super awkward to me. I really like the "overland map" though. I try to put signs everywhere to remind myself and I still get lost all the time.
