I'm a bit weak-willed sometimes. This can be bad, but not always. Personally, I'm chalking this one up to "not a bad thing" for this specific instance.
I wanted to be excited for Terraria on Vita, so I was! And then it took forever to hear anything about it and other versions were announced and released so I sort of lost faith in it because it seemed like a lost cause. Knowing that the release date was not only soon, but in fact next week shocked the hell out of me and inspired a bit of hope, but I wasn't about to let myself get too into it. Maybe the port was shoddy. Maybe it was lacking content. Maybe -something-. I didn't expect my opinion to sway back towards hopeful, really. Though I could see ways that it -could- happen. Seeing a Vita with a Terraria scene made -in- Terraria -on- a Vita was not one of those things, but goddamnit if it's not what pushed me back over the edge here.
Of course, seeing this Playstation (Europe) blog post for Terraria helps. It mentions how the controls have been mapped and tweaked to make sense for the Vita's control scheme, re-iterates that it's cross-play with the PS3 version and notes that -some- of the 1.2 patch content is in the game along with -all- of the original game's content. So I'm not expecting a slouch port. I haven't heard any rumblings of problems of the technical side yet either. What this means is that, well, I do believe I am allowing myself to hope again. And I am going to be buying this ASAP on Tuesday, provided I'm able to do so. And that....that's just awesome.
