One Shots: Head of the class

What do you do if you’re a sentient stone head who has been tasked with centuries of guard duty? You probably do a lot of lounging around on a cushy chair, waiting for some Dudley Do Right to wander your way and agree to do your job for you.

Miol sends in this odd Guild Wars 2 shot from the Living Story Season 3 in response to my call for goofy screenshots: “How about a literal talking head? Silly enough?” Well, it’s noggin I like, but noggin I hate, either.

Yeah, I’ll just show myself out. Sorry about that.

 

Sometimes you do the silly, sometimes the silly does you. Robert’s embarrassment in RIFT ends up being your Sunday afternoon amusement.

“Because sometimes you end up sticking your bear into a building face first. No, seriously, bear faces can penetrate solid material without damaging either the bear or the material! For proof see this bear stuck quite firmly into a porticulum!”

“I’m getting fairly excited for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk to be seen in an IMAX cinema next month,” wrote Rees Racer. “In War Thunder, I tried to recreate what might have been a scene during Operation Dynamo as my Spitfire Mk II (along with support from the Royal Navy) covers the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force during morning hours in late May/early June 1940.”

Can’t say that I’ve ever seen or even thought about Asta Online much, but if ButterPanda’s screenshot here is any indication, it’s a very pretty game that has a terminal case of the pinks.

“Here is a pic of my Yayo Mage in the beautiful world of Asta Online,” ButterPanda writes.

Some strikingly gorgeous pictures this week, including this one of Black Desert’s Valencia from Koshelkin. And if this is from before the promised graphical upgrade, I don’t know if my eyeballs will be able to handle the after!

You need a good screenshot challenge, don’t you! Well then, let’s make this week all about fighting, since that’s what we end up doing most of the time in MMOs anyway. Do you have any good shots of your characters in mid-combat? Let’s see them!

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

Orr’s architecture with its arches keeps me in awe and mesmerized!

Orr is one of my favorite areas. It has a desolate look with an ancient splendor in ruins to compliment it. I wish there was some way that they could create Orr back in its prime and allow us to play there.

Kinda reminds me of Ego’s “building project” from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 I saw this past Friday. That is, it was a little hard to look at times. O.o

Oh it does look like Ego’s building project. Guardians of the Galaxy was a good movie little sad though.

Coincidentally(really) I took this one today while fighting “scroll bosses”. It came out quite ok considering it’s hard to make good combat screenshots, at least outside of filming others from 1st person. One Addendum where I tested the new 8k function for BDO, 25mb of png Tamer awesomeness. /o

I really want to play this game, still IP blocked, not even the character creator is downloadable, instead i bought GW2, i know it’s all about legal issues … sigh, nothing i can do, and i promise, this is the last time i’ll complain about this :-)

I hardly ever take screenshots in combat. Usually too busy being distracted by actually playing the game.

But Warframe’s Captura tool certainly changes things in that regard. Wish all games had something on this level. I need to jump in and take more screenshots!

…good shots of your characters in mid-combat?

I’m not sure any MMO does combat better than TERA. It’s a constant visceral thrill. I think my favourite character is still my perfectly coiffed, blue-hair High Elf Gunner. In my mind, occasionally, she seemingly has a female version of Tony Montana’s Cuban accent: “Say hello to my little friend!”

My screenshot made the cut! Awesome! And ASTA is lots of fun. The translations are pretty bad, but the controls work and the classes/race are fun. And that was just one aspect of the world. There are different starting areas for the different races and this is the Yayo starting area. The rest of the world isn’t as pink but still beautiful.

Sorceress is a lot of fun to play. I have my main done up to look like the titular character of Battle Angel: Alita, perpetually pursed lips an all. The way she fights just matched the character. I don’ have any good screenshots of her and I am taking a break from the game at the moment, but I will post this as a “good enough” representation of what she looks like in combat.

Since we’re on this off-topic, when is James Cameron going to gives us our live action Gunnm? (And please, not another Terminator…that’s been done to death, IMO. )

And keeping with the theme here, one of my favs: <3

I fight for you all so the Shapers and their so-called “enlightened” sheeple won’t enslave you. This weekend I completed the MAGNUS builder task.

Back to WoW and this time good old Pandaria, this place is beautiful, Mogu’shan Palace alone is worthy of a tourist tour, but first clean it from mobs, and in Pandaria itself, try to find the Golden Panda door, what’s behind it? to this day i still find new details i never noticed before, is it wrong to feel nostalgic for something i experienced in 2014? seems a short time for nostalgia.

I wish Pandaria wouldn’t had introduced a harsh dumbing down of the skill trees. I might play WoW now if that wouldn’t be the case.

thanks to my youtuber buddy allyghost, i discovered the skyline gtr inspired elegc classic retro in gtao this week, and immidiately logged in to purchase (base car is free even!) and outfit in bennys (conversion to teh retro costs a meaty 900k, but fully modded cost was a total of 1.4m!). she’s a bit slower than my other tuners but has incredible sttreeet control that i fear if i get used to it i’ll drive even worse with my other faves.

we jokingly selected 4 d.vas pregame this week. we didn’t actually play a 4 d/va game tho. which is a damn shame becuase that sounds like it’d be pretty bad ass XD

i also discovered the secret to getting MVP is to do lots of damage to buildings. which d.va’s self destruct ability is quite good at doing! i even got a kill with it one time! :O

jose built a rail gun in minecraft this week. it’s not a very effective weapon as it needs to be charged with electricity and the ammo is quite pricey. but damned if it doesn’t look cool amirite?

how did you add a mini-map in Minecraft? while i love the game i think it needs few tools to help players navigate the world, getting lost then giving up a world is a repeated story for me.
