One Shots: Hail to the victor!
Have you ever been able to capture a truly victorious moment in your MMORPG journeys? Rees Racer did, and he is not above showing off (fortunately for us!).
“No spoilers, so I’ll just pass along a TERA cutscene shot from a meeting with Priestess Ciebel after the defeat of a traitorous threat to the Alliance,” Rees writes. “Of course, my Gunner is issued new orders almost immediately as there are seemingly always other harbingers of doom to confront…”
You save the world once, everyone wants you to keep on doing it, over and over again. My advice? Start charging per apocalypse and put aside a portion for retirement in another dimension.
It never fails to make me weirdly happy when people email One Shots submissions. You go to the front of the line, Bobuliss, and you don’t mind the looks that the other kids are giving you!
“Here’s my character Khorghast’s latest victorious moment from EVE Online,” Bobuliss writes. “I finally bought my first capital ship, a Ninazu-class Force Auxiliary Ship. Here it is pictured here floating majestically just in front of my alliance’s logo with one of the towers of our fully armed and operational Keepstar in the background. Also, check out that sweet nebula back there!”
So, so many Secret World Legends screenshots this past week! Makes me think that I’m not the only one playing this rebooted game lately.
If you’re ever wondering who broke the world, blame Thickenergy: “Here I am, surveying the scene and calculating the amount of duct tape I need, after defeating the last boss in a dungeon.”
Anima duct tape can hold anything. Anything.
“I can’t wait for the next episode of Guild Wars 2, where we’ll finally be able to visit Orr in its current state after Zhaitan’s influence has dissipated so many years ago, even if the rest of Orr will stay suspended in time, now just like any other themepark,” said Miol. “So here you are: The entrance to the ruins of the Cathedral of Silence, the first temple of Grenth, the human god of death and judgement!”
Yes, let’s go back to the island of resurrected death and decay. Right after we detour through New Jersey.
Another guilty pleasure of mine in this column is to highlight anyone who brings us some classic screenshots from the MMOs of yore.
Jon Sleeper brings us back to the era of City of Heroes and its infamous sewer system: “Here’s an ancient shot of my Blaster taking down Dr. Vahzilok.”
I still can’t poop without fear of puking zombies coming out of my toilet because of that game, but I don’t mind. It was a great ride.
As this is National Zombie Week (newly created by yours truly), I want to see the best and most eww-inducing undead screenshots from MMOs in the comments. Zombie everything, people! Leave no species behind!
