One Shots: Walk of shame

From Zulika Mi-Nam’s Adventures in Tale of Toast:

  1. Log into a game to do some play testing.
  2. “Hey, look at these cutsie graphics and those childlike animations!”
  3. Kill some level 1 and level 2 bunnies rabbits and some loot drops right on the ground from time to time.
  4. Find a treasure chest with a level 5 baddie guarding it.
  5. Make that baddie chase me around a tree and out run him back to that chest and loot it and get away: “Haha this is easy and I got a badass level 5 sword… gonna save that for later.”
  6. Go to town sell my trash loot and head back out.
  7. Take on a level 3 mushroom: “Pfft no problem.”
  8. Gonna go for this level 4 bat: “Woah this could go either way… depends on who lands the next hit….yah! Loot sound! Wait, he is bouncing away… I’m dead… then what was that loot?”
  9. Respawns and looks at inventory: “That… that was the sword I was saving, and it is just laying out there on the ground now.”
  10. Do the walk of shame to retrieve my sword and turn to shake my childlike fist at that bat. “I’ll be back! You… you fooled me with your cutsieness.”

I definitely love interesting and unusual NPC character models in MMOs, so I took a shine to this odd fellow in Black Desert Online.

“The best thing was how realistic his facial expressions and gestures were,” posted Koshelkin. “Sadly, that can’t be captured in a screencap.”

Last week I asked for some macabre screenshots, and honestly? I was a little let down how tame the responses were. I really thought we’d be swimming in bathtubs of viscera and skeletons, but I guess everyone has more propriety than I.

Toy Clown did intrigue me with this picture of a “pool of floaters” in Elder Scrolls Online. That’s unfortunate terminology, but what can you do?

“If you enjoy spelunking (i. e. caving), this one is worth a look,” mentions Miol.  “With all its nooks and crannies, it’s finally something for explorers again! At long last, it has given Anet’s awesome map artists a new chance to utilize Guild Wars 2’s abilities of verticality!”

Another good reminder that housing in World of Warcraft is for everyone other than world-saving heroes. But drug-addled Elves? Sure! Why not!

Minimalistway brought this pic to our attention: “In Suramar, a beautiful city which makes me wish Landmark or some other title could provide Minecraft-like gameplay. I want to build a house like the ones I see in Suramar, but Landmark is dead and Minecraft is… boxy.”

Now that June is in full swing, my mind has turned to summer. And what’s more summer than camping? So this week’s screenshot challenge is themed around camping in MMOs: Tents, summer camp-like areas, forested retreats, etc. Do you have any pictures of camps?

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!

Man I wish I had saved screenshots of my Master Ranger camp from SWG but that was many computers ago.

I don’t play WoW any longer and I don’t love the game, but I have to admit that walking into Elwynn Forest the first time was one of my peak MMO experiences. I still love the place.

Ah housing in WoW, they have so many 3D assests, furniture and all kind of objects, just take a look at the interior of any building in Broken Isle zones, you’ll see high quality items or stuff you can put in your house … if you have a house in WoW.

Housing in WoW will be a good reason to keep me in the game, they could make it like the transmog system, collection, achievements maybe even events or “micro-holiday”.

You can’t get lost while camping in the wild, if you have your tent made of maps, am I right?
But also, don’t forget to take some extra globes with you, to be sure! ;P

Alright. My fave camp scene at the moment. What could she possibly be thinking at this moment?

“More crappy camp food. Hmm… I bet I could find some pizza. Why not? I’m fighting mobs in this outfit. Pizza is not out of the picture.”

Here’s my latest update on my FFXIV adventures in monking, as well as my latest attempt to see if I can upload at least one pic to Lifefyre today. I may have to start Pateroning if it’ll afford y’all some better software, I couldn’t get any of my previous picture sets to upload. :(

“Do you have any pictures of camps?”

There’s no pretending TERA is an open-world sandbox. It is straight-up themepark. This means there are plenty of towns (large and small) along with various and sundry other quest hubs…cleverly disguised as…camps. I’m having good fun leveling the newest Valkyrie class, and here she is during a brief respite at the Desert Research Station in Val Aureum.

And the other thing TERA does really, really well? Mounts. Definitely.

That’s a nice mount. <3

The Regal Frostlion mount was part of the Founder’s package I bought 5 years ago. I’d completely forgotten about it when I picked up the game again at the beginning of the year. It’s a nice account-wide perk…although still not nearly as extravagant as some of the enormous flying dragons or the fun, but silly, police cars, (or flying pigs). The variety is staggering. ;)

That moment when you walk up a ramp and immediately stop and buff up ’cause you know there is a probably a big fight about to happen as soon as you walk in the middle of the area. -ESO

Yup. I’ve been there too — you enter certain areas in a game, and you just know by looking that things are going to get nasty quickly!
