    Who plays Terraria?

    *Raises hand* I've been playing since day one and have basically 'beaten' it. I agree that they need more updates but remember the game is still in its infancy. If you're on the fence its definitely worth it for the price you pay for the level of depth you get.

    Shouldn't Anonymous hit back at LulzSec?

    For something like The Escapes I don't think Anon would bother too much; I don't think were worth the attention... The best thing that can be done to deal with Lulzsec is to ignore them - they work off the reaction they get.

    What's the story behind your username?

    From an episode of How I Met Your Mother. Yah, sue me, I like the show. The only problem is people are quick to assume it's the other kind of Blitz, then wonder why I'm proud of using it as my name, being British and all.

    The most disturbing thing you've seen in gaming.

    Probably the opening scene of Homefront. That kids mother getting shot in front of him is just... chilling.

    An Egyptian Man Plans to Fight, and Maybe Kill, a Lion

    http://www.almasryalyoum.com/en/node/465580 This site is apparently his Q&A session. Looks like it's down right now, may be worth keeping an eye on it.

    Re-Imagine a Game

    Some sort of Zelda/Minecraft crossover. Minecraft in as much as the gathering and building lifestyle, but set in Hyrule, with towns, NPCs and everything. You start of en par with regular Minecraft, work your way up, get some contracts from the towns to go smash up the bosses, that unlocks...

    Best video game music?

    Just about anything from Dynasty Warriors. What can I say, I'm a sucker for speed metal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlS7MH_Xs8c Edit: Anything from 1:00 just gets me every time.

    Recommend me some music!

    If you get the chance, try and listen to some of their live work. Their command of the crowd is completely natural and just has this awesome feel to it.

    Recommend me some music!

    These guys are a little more folky, but man I love them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNy8llTLvuA Also, if you're in to them then go for Dropkick Murphys(probably my all time favourite band), they're folky but a lot heavier than Mumford and Sons. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzF0hHb7xMc

    Pirates accidentally preserving gaming history?

    I'm sure if any of the big 3 allowed this then they'd find a way to charge you for it (we're talking in the 20 years or so you're talking about.) That said I agree that piracy should, hopefully, keep these all alive in the future, much akin to how you can still play games from the NES/PSX and...

    I want to build a game!

    I don't know how helpful you'll find it, but seriously, watch the Extra Credits videos here on the Escapist. The writers of that have some really, really good ideas to share, and they seem to target indie developers when offering advice on how to better the video gaming industry.

    Will the Wii ever catch the PS2?

    Honestly, probably not. In context, at the time, the PS2 was a much bigger deal. For a while it dominated the market, until the Xbox was released, and even then it was a much more familiar, and therefore more likely to sell, image, capitalizing on the PS1's success, whereas the Xbox didn't have...
