Terraria Journal

June 27, 2011 5 comments


I have decided to keep a journal of my journeys, perhaps it will help me stay sane. I have no idea how I got here, or if I will ever leave, but if I don’t this journal will help people understand who I am.

I awoke to find myself on a cliff, overlooking a small pool of water. A man was hovering over me, he smiled when I awoke. “Oh good, I was worried you weren’t going to make it. Welcome to Terraria!”

The man said he was my “Guide”. He wasn’t able to do too much guiding though, as he told me nightfall would come soon, and when it did, we would be in a bad way if we didn’t have shelter. I decided not to ask, and instead went to go find some wood. Searching my bag I discovered I had an axe. Where this came from, I have no idea, but it helped me collect enough wood to slap together a house. While gathering I was assaulted by strange, jelly monsters. My new axe made short work of them, as did a pickaxe I found. Returning to the cliff where I awoke, I got to work on our simple shelter. I got the roof over our heads just as night fell. My Guide told me to seal us in, it would be safer that way.

I was about to find out what he meant.

Just a warning for you guys, this is going to be the first time this is really “poor-man’s gaming” and not “totally-free gaming”.  I will start by saying this game is €14.95, which google tells me is a little over $20.00 Canadian. I will also say that this game has, in my case, paid for itself a million times over.

What game could this possibly be that I want to talk about it this much? I bet I have you on the edge of your seat just wo-…oh. I put it in the title. Damn.

Yeah its Minecraft.

This game involves crafting, and possibly some mining.

Poor-Man’s Gaming: League Of Legends

League of Legends is considered to be one of the hardest games to get into, and its pretty easy to see why. It’s a game that requires split second reaction time, incredible awareness, and knowledge of all of its characters, and every move they have.

76 characters in total, and still they add more.

If you can get past all of that though? Totally worth it.

This is the start of an ongoing thing I will be doing on this blog: telling you how to have an awesome time gaming for, if not free, then really cheap.

Today I am going to be talking about Alien Swarm.

If you are guessing this game involves Aliens, and the swarming of them. YOU ARE RIGHT.
