Yes but I don't think anyone would know a robot did it until after it won awards/gained acclaim. I think it will be revealed as a big shocker after.

Art critiquing is bullshit though.

No. Give it about 2 yrs and it might be playable to people who've never touched an X game before.

If you are a fan of any of the previous games in the series, just forget this ever happened or wait until it's on sale for <$5.

Haha, brilliant I'm liking the place already! When does the talking about games happen though?

Talk about what? Video games? Take that crap elsewhere, we have no place for it here...

Or you can go check out the rest of the forums, they're pretty up to date and active and it's a great community who love to have a laugh and joke whilst talking about the latest news...if that's what you're into...sicko.

I spent so much time with Terraria that I don't see myself getting that into a super similar game but I'm still ready to jump into the beta.

Maybe it'll grow on me, but I can't help but feel they stopped halfway with the animations. Terraria was charming in its own way with everything being so rigid, here some of the character animations just look off to me, things bolted onto unmoving torsos. Soldat got it right in 2002.

Yeah the animations are a bit funky. With this being early access though hopefully they'll improve over time. Failing that they're putting out deep modding tools which allows tweaking of animations so maybe some modders will sort it out.

Beta trailer!

Loading Video...

Looks like it's shaping up to be pretty good.

At first I thought the terrain didn't look too great, but after getting used to it I think it looks amazing, especially lighting is great compared to Terraria. My only gripe is the lack of gore, as it seems everything dies in a puff of smoke, though I think they might add a gore option at some point. The gore in Terraia was more cartoony than anything else and I don't see why we couldn't have a bit of that in Starbound.

I'm with you on this. I'm not going to be able to help my self though and I'm slowly coming to terms with ruining the game by playing the beta to excess. Though the beta only has tier 1-3 content and with 10 tiers set to be in the game, you could see it as doing the early stuff, having a break and then doing the later stuff as it all gets added.

Yeah all the preview stuff has said really positive things. Look forward to trying it later.

Edit: Nevermind that, this is really stupid, you clearly aren't interested in either so why even ask. This is a really stupid question.

I remember this exact same question being asked at the start of the previous generation. The term "Next Gen" was used for the PS3/360 for years, so I'd say we've got it until 2015 at least.

I loved the old Broken Sword games (even though after playing them again recently, I realised they aren't all that great) but this has largely flown under my radar. I will certainly check it out when it launches.

I am very exited for this, I loved the old 2D games (apart from that goat in the first, that took me ages to get past without internet etc.) . They are still great today. I need to finish the last Deponia game, I will definitely get this.

Oh God that goat!

@samstrife: Definitely something to try, would be pretty nuts if this turned out to be the issue, since the pc had been working for some time up untill this happened.

Well if it is a case related issue along those lines, it may have only taken a small bump or knock (from say a 2 year old child who likes to touch things) to trigger. Considering he's changed every part, it pretty much has to be an issue with the case...right?
