Buy Terraria! Also Steam Giveaways
Alright people, this better be the last time I tell you to buy Terraria. Today on Steam the game is only $2.50, and being December 1st the game has nearly doubled in size thanks to the 1.1 patch dropping. I can’t heap enough praise on this game, and to have content added frequently and of this staggering size, it just won’t stop. Can’t stop.
I’ll refresh your memory on the content of the patch that just dropped, for those who forgot or skipped over my needlessly wordy Steam Autumn Sale coverage. It will have 222 new items, 39 monsters, female characters, new ores to make new armor/weapons/items with, the ability to make traps, pumps, and other contraptions, a new lighting system and new bosses. Also more end game content, which when completed turns your world into a hard mode version. All that, piled onto the several smaller updates these past many months and you have one meaty package for a mere $2.50.
Why, that’s cheap enough that you can buy more of the upcoming daily deals during the Daily Wishlist Giveaway Event. Yes, Steam’s war against my wallet continues, but this time with a twist. Everyday 10 people will win 10 games from their wishlist. Entering each day is as simple as logging in, having at least 10 items in your wishlist, and visiting the daily deal page. If I keep covering Steam sales, maybe they will fast track me to finally winning one of these things. I had so many tickets during the summer scavenger hunt, statistics or black magic or something has to swing in my favor now.
Notice how I didn’t mention buying the daily deal. No purchase is necessary for entering everyday, you just need to press your face up against the proverbial glass and drool at the sale. Restraining yourself from buying any of those super cheap games until the inevitable holiday sale/event. Those stronger then I will succeed at entering for free everyday.
So go forth and avoid logging into Steam, because I want to win, you get this one free pass to login so you can buy Terraria. After that stay away and increase my odds of winning games my computer can’t even run.
