I appreciate it, but before I even think about killing it I need to figure out why I can't get more NPCs to move in...

No problem I'm down for anything I just converted my hill side varied houses into a 5 story Sliver/Copper Brick and Wooden structure, and if you don't mind I've got plenty of extra materials for summoning another Eater of Worlds and other various goodies and 3 Life Hearts(That I recently picked up)I can't use any way if your gauge isn't full yet. I'm free anytime Monday or Sunday the 10th after

Edit: 5pm EST if Monday isn't good though later on can be arranged as well of course.

ive been watching the cynical brit's lets play of this and it looks fun but the reason i never played minecraft is because i felt that running around digging and building stuff would get boring for me without a set objective in mind. is there an actual goal in this game or is it one of those things where you make your own goal?

Sure, Monday at five's good. I use xfire if you have it and the user name is the same there. Maybe if you see the place first hand you can see what's wrong with it. Have to warn you though, I'm forced to use a wireless internet connection without a wireless card so the internet spazzes out sporadically. Also, I already have full hearts, but I could use more mana crystals, and if you have any obsidion skulls, space guns, molten armor and the like I wouldn't complain.

Well so far the In-game world doesn't really push you to do anything If you don't push yourself a little too but you can make multiple characters or just main one and you can do the same for the worlds you can create multiple randomly generated worlds to explore them all with the same character or any other characters too.Story wise if you can call it that it's do what ever you want but after several in game days some events are forced apawn you if you don't trigger them once before or it's just a timed event pop-up like blood moons where a lot more creatures come out during the night for the whole night and can even broke through(just unlock not destroying )doors and some bosses will appear as well if after a period of time has passed if you haven't defeated them yet. but other than that up to Version 1.0.5. doesn't have a real reason for you do anything in game other than just for the sake of exploring.

The world only changes(mostly) when you make it so a patch or silver ore won't regrow or be there for a different character but grass and other plants can grow over time making that a nice way to harvest cash making gardens of certain plants either for potions or for selling to get coins

yeah i wasnt expecting a story or anything but boss fights are sort of what im talking about. like just building a massive house is something the probably wouldnt hold me attention long, but things like building up my health and gear so i could survive boss fights would probably hold my interest longer. im still not sure if this will be my kind of game, but its $5 at the moment so what do i have to lose.

i do have two more questions though, if you dont mind. 1.)i heard online is tricky. can you connect with random people online or do you have to know their information? 2.)how is the modding community for the game?

For multi-player yeah you basically have to know each other the Host is the player who made the world but like I said before you can travel to multiple worlds so you could switch between hosts with their own worlds and such but Terraria only has 4 Bosses so far but I guess the maker isn't done yet either and they can reappear/be resummoned.

Don't take it as trolling, but rather as constructive criticism, but what's the point in having a video review and a written review if they contain almost the same information, word to word.

Terraria: one of the best purchases I've ever made.

I dont get why every reviewer I've seen is just doing the review now.. Its been out for months..

But whatever, its a awesome game..

Lol its because they have been too busy playing the game ^_^.

On topic the game is awesome and I myself have spent MANY hours playing it.

Side note: How many people do you have playing on that server and how long did it take to build all of that?

Probably 8-10 people, with maybe half of those on regularly during the construction process. Hard to give an exact time it took to build all the various things, as it was constantly renovated. The apartment tower is over 700ft tall now, and construction was done in 5 stages over about 3 weeks. We had 3 people dig a 5000ft long tunnel at 490ft depth (I-490) to connect the hell shaft 'rest area' (seen partway through the fall at the end of the video) to the jungle. It also connects with the corruption zone and the local base there with the Nymph. Construction of that was rather quick, even with only one of the three having a pick that could go through ebonstone (gold picks for the other two).

Mushroom farm construction was a 3-person project and took very little time. Hell shaft appeared pretty quick (wasn't part of the original dig), was upgraded with platforms and properly lit by a couple people over the course of a day. Later expanded to 3-wide and repaired after a lava accident at the reactor leaked down the shaft.

Latest projects include: Roman-style highway east (2 layers of dirt, 2 of stone, 2 of grey brick, and the top paved in gold brick) to the dungeon 6000ft away, which has some anti-meteor towers slowly sprouting over it; and a combat arena to the west, complete with spikes looted from that dungeon.

ThatGuyWithTheShotty:
Anyone notice the Kiershar obsidian farm?

After a slight containment accident caused the collapse of the mushroom farm, and destroyed all the platforms in the hell shaft, we named ours the Fukushima Obsidian Reactor.[1]
