Happy thanksgiving everyone!!!! It was a great holiday weekend- I ate 2 thanksgiving dinners this year and played more video games then you can shake a turducken drumstick at!! The PS4 was cranking and the PC was heating up like sausage stuffing inside roasting poultry! But the big winner for me this weekend was a game that I never thought I would like. I know I am very late to the party, but some new interest was stirred after a big update to the game and the release of the IOS and Android versions. The game is Terraria and man, do the hours fly by when you're playing this game!
So this beast of a game is pretty much 2D Minecraft. That means you start with almost nothing and are forced to create a rude hovel of dirt to protect you on the ground whilst you dig deep in the earth like the dwarves of old to find precious metals and construct your invincible empire. What sets the game apart is it as much about developing your character as it is building a great castle. You have to craft armor for yourself like in Minecraft but deep in the earth are treasures you can find that give you superpowers and make you a bad ass! However you will need all the badassery in the world to combat the bosses you can summon and battle the massive random hordes of zombies that spawn on the blood moon.
