Starbound sucks because it took more than six seconds to download.

If I had a computer that could play it, I'd probably play it.

Okay what the hell. I was going to at least get a character made before going to bed but it has been stuck at 100% downloaded for 7 minutes now.

Steam is probably taxed pretty hard right now. Starbound's server crashed when the beta opened ~3 hours ago.

It was rather odd though, it hit 100% and just sat there for ten minutes before it finally finished. Definitely not disappointed with the game so far. Meant to only play 20 minutes or so before going to sleep and played double that without even realizing it.

I don't know what Starbound is. It kind of looks like Space Terraria: The RPG or something I guess? It costs money though so I won't be playing it for a long time.
That penguin is cute though.

It feels a bit different than Terraria. It doesn't feel quite as grindy and it feels like the devs were actually competent too. There's less of a focus on mining than in Terraria and in fact the basic mining tool can mine up to four blocks at once. (With each block potentially giving up to two blocks itself too since ores can spawn in stone/dirt blocks.) Though if you didn't like Terraria then there's a fair chance you won't like it either since they are reasonably similar.

Huh, neat! Last I heard about Starbound was like a year ago when they abandoned Terraria. It looks pretty neat!

I'm kind of surprised the same team is able to balance updating Terraria while working on the Starbound beta while also developing Terraria 2.

Starbound is on my wishlist; I'll probably wait 'til the Christmas sale and see if it gets discounted

It's not at all the same team. The only person who worked on Terraria that worked on Starbound is Tiy who did sprites for Terraria. I'm not sure why everyone seems to think they're the same people.

I don't get why people still think they "abandoned" Terraria. He had a kid which is a bit more important.

Well, there's a difference between "abandoning" and "unreasonably abandoning," which in this case was the former

All that does is make me want to play more Terraria. It doesn't look as good as Terraria.

The game is fun so far. Though there's some things that feel a bit unbalanced at the moment and they need to flesh out the beginning of the game to clear things up. A few things such as figuring out how to refuel my ship or repair my pickaxe took me awhile to figure out and boss summon tokens really need to make it more clear what they do considering the amount of resources they require.

They should also add in some sort of intro quest to get you on the right track for advancing and the first boss needs to be changed up a bit. If you don't reach it with something like a doublejump tech or (if it's even possible) a gun it's really hard to actually win. I had to take it down using a standard hunting bow and when it tried to slam down on top of me a reasonably powerful spear I had. And this took nearly a full in-game day and a good 40-50 bandages to accomplish.

Edit: Oh right, that's what I was forgetting when I posted this. The heat gauge (which has been changed now actually) was confusingly marked playing as a floran. Made me think that it was a lack of sunlight killing me and not me freezing to death.

I'm really not sure why but this is an absurdly common misconception for some reason.

It is now, so I am interested for the next 15 minutes, probably. After that I get bored, possibly.

Three hours into the game and I am dying of happiness.

This game does not disappoint!

I'm stuck near the end of the second tier. I have great weapons that can kill the toughest enemies (excluding bosses and minibosses) in a max of 3-4 hits but I can't find any armor to stop me being killed in one hit by anything above level 16 or 17.
