One Shots: Lights, camera, frogs!
Just because you happen to be a humanoid frog doesn’t mean that you’ve lost at the lottery of life. On the contrary, you have all sorts of advantages, such as being able to install and replace light fixtures very high in your underground cavern. Also, you can eat flies.
Reader Finyar starts us out this week with a stunning interior location from a fan-favorite MMO: “I’m currently playing Guild Wars 2 again and I’m always impressed with how beautifully crafted the game world is.”
Art matters, people. Also, why can’t we play more frogs in online games?
“I don’t make the laws. But I WILL enforce them. Innocents die when when order breaks. I don’t blink when I need to space a thief, don’t balk when I slave a man who skips a contract. I might lose sleep, but stave the tears. The Empire needs strength. And I’ll be here.” (Inspector Sykes, Imperial Intelligence)
Brandon, I know this was unintentional with your SWTOR description there, but now I have the Friends theme playing in my head. “I’ll be there for you when the Force starts to fall…”
Today we’ve got yet another Boom-approved Age of Conan picture, this one featuring oneof the more detailed portals in the game. What lies beyond it? There’s only one way to find out! That’s right: Tie a string to a penniless street urchin and tell them to go through it for a sandwhich. One way or the other, you’ll find out what lies beyond.
Last week’s screenshot challenge was to share “non-photogenic” pictures of your avatars, and this sparked a few captivating posts. Rafael12104 decided to play around with the theme in Blade and Soul.
“There is this beauty. I wouldn’t call him photogenic, but I’m sure his screen cap count is way up there. Don’t ask me about the outfit. This game prides itself in adding anything and everything to outfits.”
Everyone’s playing around with the new Elite Dangerous avatar creator, and here we have examples of it from BalsBigBrother (left) and Koshelkin (right).
“I took a look at the HoloMe commander creator and it really is very good when it comes to the faces,” BalsBigBrother said. “I really appreciate that you can make older faces that actually look old. Sadly it falls down in the body part of the equation. You are limited to one size fits all with no body sliders to adjust anything. So when you create an older face it is put on the pert body of a 20-something, it looks a bit odd to say the least.”
With LOTRO’s anniversary in swing, I was reminded of how often MMO birthdays tend to feature a crapton of fireworks. Bet you’ve fired off a few — and maybe taken screenshots of the light shows to boot! This week’s screenshot challenge is to show off your best fireworks display from an MMO.
