One Shots: Starlight, starbright

As someone very much on the outside of this whole Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire thing, my observations is that this is some sort of night sky simulator coupled with a public transportation PSA. It does look very pretty, though.

“I’ve been having an absolute blast with Path of Fire so far,” writes Xephyr. “The maps are HUGE and insanely detailed, there’s stuff to do everywhere! And mounts, omg, THE MOUNTS! Joy of movement indeed. Anyways, here’s me and my griffin bro doing some exploring.”

In Mother Russia, mount rides you to work!

Back on planet Earth, albeit one in an alternate dimension, Melissa trots down the early access streets of Wild West Online. But where are the shadows? Why doesn’t this universe process shadows?!?

“Graphics seem much improved in Wild West Online,” she notes. “LOD details far more…uh.. detailed.”

Did I ask for prison pics? I must have, because here comes Camelotcrusade with one of the oddest penitentiaries in the galaxy.

“There are lots of prisons in SWTOR. For example, here I am in Belsavis, where the whole planet is a prison. How did I escape? Well, here you can see my character pondering how turn on the console, which as you may note, has a single, centrally located button larger than his head. You might think the answer is ‘Push the button, Frank’ (especially if you are a fan of MST3K). But as it turns out, though, you need to clear four antipodean hallways which contain more computers, push those buttons, and then push this button. Of course!”

Can we go back to Path of Fire’s night sky? Because it’s hard to stop with just one screencap, really. Thank goodness the Hugmonster ran up, gave us a tight squeeze, and pronounced the following “gorgeous!”

What is up in those stars? Why, it’s Deekay_plus, zooming around in a galaxy far, far away!

“Next up is a screenshot of Star Wars Galaxies — just prior to the sunset — that came up on my Facebook app this past week. I do miss that very nicely customizable UI, even if there was some need of tinkering in client files to get started.”

Where is your character in his or her natural element? Ponder that question for a few and then find or take a screenshot to show a perfect combination of environment and personality for this week’s challenge!

I’m going to stretch the definition a bit. I may have posted this one before, but I love how it turned out. Galaxy-Class approaching Spacedock. The next, just the most recent pic of my Engi Caitian in the Discovery uniform.

I’m jumping around MMOs right now, looking for my next extended stay. Currently checking out all the changes in ArcheAge and made a Warborn. I really like them and the half-demon race fits well in desert environments.

Yes! haha Good thing she can encase herself in demonic armor as a race ability and avoid that! I think!

My “main” for nearly two decades, from Butcherblock to Ironforge. I think this shot was made while waiting for a Tempest Keep raid to assemble. The goggles helped me not stand in the fire (Or maybe it was the belt). That was such a weird place for an old dwarf healer. Very much out of his element.

It’s totally worth it ’cause then you can count them all to fall asleep. I guess this qualifies as being “in my element” too: surrounded by fluffy cuteness.

I’ve been having a blast with the griffon races! They are so much fun. My guildies and I have spent a bunch of time trying to best each other’s times and talking a ton of smack and generally just enjoying the heck out of it.

If you have mastered all your griffon masteries you unlock the challenges. There are two in each map I believe. There may be more but I havent found them yet. SO much fun!

Thanks for the feature. ^-^

For my character’s “natural element” I had a lot of good choices but I kept going back to this one. Proud, plotting and king of his castle. It’s a re-post for me, but one of my all-time faves of this character.

Runner up from 10 years ago.

Corwynn wanted everything to be just right in his little love nest, and hoped the addition of heart candles would lighten the fact he’d used skulls to hang his curtains. As for why the headboard had three chains… well… Corwynn was a lover, not a crafter.

Natural element? Hmm… well, I could post a serene and beautiful pic of my new gunner with flowers in her hair and a hint of her wilder side as a barely visible tattoo. In fact I’ll do that.

BUT, my gunners real element? “Once more unto the breach, dear friends. Cry havoc! And let slip the dogs of war!!!”

I enjoyed that game a lot. Probably even a little more than Uncharted 4.

albion is pure hax in 21:9 with the extra gameplay area. although i didn’t actually do any gameplay of albion this week lol

i went shopping for my character in pubg this week. most of the hat economy items are rather cheap making it far more cost effective to just buy what you want rather than waste money on the rng lockboxes it all comes from.

i took a minute to take some selfies when we took a stop to exchange ammo in a pubg session this past week.

which the pubg qq storm seems to be rather odd in that most of the people qqing don’t seem to have much actual facts about the game. or the designer behind it. or who said what. or the difference between a concept and design. and ofc there’s the sudden outrage about cosmetics being sold which is surprising to me given how the venue in question tends to defend valve’s steam hat economy in valve’s games even when it’s used for gambling purposes and promoted to minors.

for my part i don’t much care and i’m just enjoying the game for what it is while i wait for destiny 2, but really questioning where these people are coming from in their qq about it and what their motivations are. if nothing but hot air they are certainly loud and persistent in their qq about the game in the odd ways they choose to shout at people about it.

A couple shots from Hob a new platformer that rolled out this week from Runic Games (Torchlight series). It’s almost become cliche to say this of lower budget platformers these days, but this has personality despite the complete lack of dialogue. I recommend for anyone who enjoys rewarding exploration and environmental puzzles.

So is mine: like I said in WRUP yesterday, both my gaming money and time for October are already spent and it’s only the first of the month.
