[QUOTE=gazzy_GUI;35069335]Sounds like Fighting games health system.[/QUOTE] Indeed; it's like recovery, whereby if you avoid being hit you can recover some of the lost health. Interesting kind of health regen, IMO. But one thing i'm hoping is that they have "special abilities", possibly item-based. but I guess we'll find out about that in the next blog posts.
i wanna be able to construct sentries for defense.

Beat me too it, still it looks fucking amazing.
I can just imagine walking through a deep, dark cave and shedding light on some underground monstrosity

that lighting was incredible, loved how it looked
And with the new vid, interest skyrockets. Kinda cool with their new lighting engine. Plus it looks like the blocks are a quarter of the player's size, as opposed to the third-of-player size that Terraria had. Loving the slope mechanics, much smoother than Terraria. As you can see, I do view this as a spiritual successor to Terraria, which is kind of what it is.
This will be tons better than Terraria, simply because of the randomness in it. Terraria was all set in stone, pretty much.
How so? I thought the terrain was pretty random, as was ore distribution and the events, but I suppose you're talking about the gear progression curve or whatever. Plus there weren't that many biomes to enter, and you always started in the forests. What're your claims of Terraria being set in stone, anyways?
The only things randomized in Terraria is the biome, and even then it's just what the layout is. In Starbound, the planets are randomized, the biomes on the planets are randomizd (Snow biomes, desert, tropical forest, etc). Even the mobs are randomized. Terraria is set in stone because there is truly nothing random about it, you KNOW the dungeon is on one side or the other. You KNOW there are islands in the sky around X Z-level. If you do it in Terraria once, you've done it all.

The more I see of this game, the more hyped I get. I've got a feeling that many sleepless nights will be spent playing this.
Seems like a real Terraria sequel with 10 times more content and more depth

Oh man, I'm so damn hyped for this.

Starbound and Terraria do look a bit alike to be fair. But this feels like it will surpass terraria.
[QUOTE=mchapra;35161653]But this feels like it will surpass terraria.[/QUOTE] From what we've heard so far, I think it has already lapped Terraria in respect to the gameplay as a whole. The art is sweet, the lighting amazing and the variety endless. I believe we have a big winner coming up here. Also, quit the bickering with the "Hurr, this looks like Terraria / Minecraft / anything with blocks", we've had this several times before, there's no need for it.

Terraria is the obvious choice to compare this game to so way not do it?
[QUOTE=Fisk;35165620]Terraria is the obvious choice to compare this game to so way not do it?[/QUOTE] I'm not trying to say that they shouldn't be compared, as they quite obviously have a lot of similarities, but there's no point in doing the whole back-and-forth about it.
[QUOTE=Fisk;35165620]Terraria is the obvious choice to compare this game to so way not do it?[/QUOTE] Just because they're similar in appearance though doesn't mean they're going to be the same. Starbound sounds to be at least as different from Terraria as Terraria was from Minecraft.

[QUOTE=Onyx3173;35166062]Just because they're similar in appearance though doesn't mean they're going to be the same. Starbound sounds to be at least as different from Terraria as Terraria was from Minecraft.[/QUOTE] The difference between those comparisons, and what makes comparing Terraria to Starbound a valid comparison, is that those two are made by the same studio.
