So, during my visits to the Underworld, I noticed Shadow Chests, which require a key to open. I looked on the Wiki and found out that those keys are in the Dungeon. I tried to get into the Dungeon, but was killed by the Dungeon Guardian. I, again, looked on the Wiki and... Read All Having a gaming blog is now my new "thing." I've always considered myself a writer and one of the things I want to do with my gaming blog is to write about my experiences in the games I play (basic and "goes without saying," I know). That said, you can expect to see lots about Terraria as I've been playing it lately. I also intend to write about Pokemon X, which I've been playing and enjoying as well.

I tried to get into the Dungeon, but was killed by the Dungeon Guardian. I, again, looked on the Wiki and found out that you have to speak to the Old Man at the entrance at night about his curse and defeat him once he turns into Skeletron. So, I decided to do that today.
Skeletron was easy! Maybe it's because I'm using Molten Armor and a Firery Great Sword, but I didn't have any trouble defeating him. However, once I got into the Dungeon, things quickly changed. The Dungeon is crawling with enemies, traps, and spikes! If you go deep enough, the rate at which monsters will spawn will increase. The Dungeon has lots of chests, some of which require a key to open. Shadow Keys are used for Shadow Chests located in the Underworld. One Shadow Key will open all Shadow Chests. However, Golden Keys can only unlock one Golden Chest. These keys are dropped by some of the monsters.
I found out on the Wiki that the Dungeon is created to the far left or right of the world that was created, opposite of the Jungle. Apparently the color of the interior is random. I'm happy because my Dungeon is made of Blue Bricks. Blue is my favorite color!
As you can see, I finally have an Avatar! I signed up with Word Press and created a Gravatar. I took a screen shot of my character, Blue. Unfortunately, you can't tell that he's standing on water. For a better view, see this link: http://imgur.com/ipJvTAN
A couple of notes..I haven't found the Goblin Tinkerer yet since the first time when I met him and he died in lava. In the Dungeon, I found a Mechanic (and wish I bought the Wire Cutters from him), but he didn't survive very long. Yesterday, I counted my NPCs and chairs and tables and I should have one or two openings. I'm not sure why those two NPCs have not yet respawned in my house. I may add more to my house to make sure that they come back, eventually I suppose. I'm thinking that in order to get the Goblin Tinkerer back, I'm going to have to defeat the Goblin Army again. They have not shown up for a second time yet, but today I did run into a Goblin Scout.
Oh! Last night I found out that Minecraft is now on the PS3! I downloaded and played the (timed) demo. Unfortunately, one of my biggest gripes about the game, Creepers blowing up structures and other useful things such as farms, happened again. I was delighted that the game contains the same music as the PC version (I really love the music of Minecraft). As for the controls, I think it would just take a little time to get used to, but I think they're ok, maybe even better than the controls for the console version of Terraria. I'm not sure if I will buy the game as I can play it for free on the PC and I think I prefer the controls (for both games) on the PC. If you're a fan of the game, I recommend watching the documentary, which is almost two hours long. I watched it last night. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySRgVo1X_18
