For those few of you who don't have Terraria already, go get it for 2 and a half bucks.

No really. Do it.

I approve of this message.

I also discovered that my Genuine Tyrant's Helm (TF2 Item) I got with my Soldier Action figure is worth 5 dollars, I could get two copies of Terraria!

Super Amazing Wagon Adventure, which I streamed once or twice, is now on Steam for a similar price for a little while.

RANDOM WORMS 3 THING THAT IS FEATURED ON FRONT PAGE OF TERRARIA ONLINE

I mean yeah, you guys added Terraria hats, but seriously? You just ripped the art from the game which happens to totally clash with Worms 3's art style. Doesn't really merit being on the front page.

Somebody tell me this is a joke.

Plus I wouldn't really consider the Terraria art style distinctive enough that anyone will "get it". And:
Super cool customization items from the best-selling game Terraria. Including: Molten Helmet, Hallowed Mask, Mythril Hood, Mining Helmet, Top Hat, Archaeologist’s Hat, 5 Terraria themed gravestones and a Terraria speechbank
What on earth could that be? Quips about Terraria?

It's the third smartphone game. Not to be confused with the third mobile game. Or the third Worms game. Or the formerly-known-as-Worms-3 game (that's some forward planning there).

It's actually Worms Revolution. But on iOS. Obviously.

Hey, remember how you all sat around me in a big circle, mouths agape, absolutely enthralled and completely 100% invested in everything I was saying as I talked about Soldat and all the things I was doing in that? Well its maker just released his new game, King Arthur's Gold. Looks pretty interesting. Like Terraria with war and physics and stuff. In truth I don't know much about it, but it's gotten a pretty fair amount of attention and looks pretty noteworthy.

Phy-phy-physics? In a sandbox game? That's pretty awesome.

I've heard about KAG before, but all I knew about it is that it's 2D sandbox like Terraria. But the trailer looks pretty awesome and I may have to check it out.

By the way damn

e: A series of events which may or may not be related to events or products referenced elsewhere in this post has also left me with a spare Scribblenauts Unlimited key, if anybody's missing that and doesn't feel like buying it for three cents or whatever.

Been playing some Minecraft recently on a friend's new server (for the 1.7.2 update with the new biomes). It's reeeally hard to find jungle in the latest update, but one brave adventured more than +Z 7000 on our map before he found any. Crazy. But this is not a post about jungles, no! It's a post about the dry harsh deserts of the blocklands.

Before we started playing I knew I wanted to make a more serious attempt than before to organize a nice village. I wanted to make some kind of pyramid structure that would be at the centre, and everything important would be outside in one of four directions of city zones. While it's still to early to tell if that's how things will turn out, I did get to build a huge pyramid!

I would take all the credit for this, but my slaves friends did play a vital role in removing the mountains that were in the pyramids way and supplying me with a constant stream of sandstone (the fools!), which let me build at a very nice pace without having to stop to mine. Forgot to take screenshots of the very early stages, but it would have mostly been pictures of how small the initial base was. I haven't checked the height, but the base is 73x73 blocks (steps are 9 blocks wide, and each corner piece has a length of 32 blocks)

I just realized that this does not have enough views.

Haha! Cool link, Zeor. Hey, did I ever brag about my NetHack high scores?

Remember NetHack? I think we had a thread about it on the old forum and that our collective highest score was somewhere in the 50k range. I blew that out of the water a few times, but note that most of those runs still ended in crap. I am still literally the only player in alt.org history to die of "Killed by Medusa, while sleeping." The game went really, really far out of its own way to screw me on that one. Still cool though.

All I see is a dude who's died over and over in different horrible ways. It's like some cruel god keeps reviving him just so he can go get killed by some fucking turtle monkey ten minutes later.
I may just be bitter that I never got as far as level 2 in nethack. I've tried it several times, but it's rare that I can even get out of the first set of rooms.

That's a pretty effective and concise description of NetHack, yeah.

Currently playing Pinball Arcade. Downloaded via Steam, just playing the free Arabian Nights table at this stage. Awesome stuff, but I think I'll wait for the packs to go on sale before I get more.

I just realized I actually managed to have a lower-scoring run than from just immediately leaving the dungeon.

A Link Between Worlds seems pretty cool so far. It makes good use of the 3D.

I also ordered Skyward Sword so I'm gonna be up to my eyeballs in Zelda for weeks which is cool.
