One Shots: Poppin’ some bubbly

We are going to kick off this week’s exhibition of player screenshots with a few email submissions (yes, some of you still email them in, and bless you for it!).

It doesn’t take much of an excuse for a celebration to break out in Final Fantasy XIV, as Souseiseki notes: “A certain Miqo’te had a little too much fun celebrating Heavensturn (and too much to drink!). Although, I think she had more fun opening the bottles than actually drinking them! Fortunately, I had the foresight to hide the good stuff. Don’t worry, her chocobo was parked safe in the stables and we confiscated her saddle.”

Postscript: That chocobo was later seen perched high on top of a temple summit, wrapped in toilet paper and spray painted with an incomprehensible slogan.

“Here is a picture of Ul’dah as seen when traveling there aboard an airship,” François said. “I know it’s not for you, but I just love how peaceful the game world feels, despite the murderous beasts all over the place. The people, the vistas, and the music make it a serene experience.”

Actually, I did appreciate how relaxing, detailed, and beautiful the world was, and the music does a great job to seal the experience. Could’ve done without the moogles, though.

Bullwraith is on a fashion tear: “We have been giving RIFT a lot of grief lately for good reason, but the fact is that the dye and wardrobe system is so flexible that creativity reins free. I am frequently blown away by the beautiful creations that players weave together. And of course RIFT has the best-looking Elves in any video game!”

Weirdly enough, we had a LOT of RIFT submissions this past week. Guess y’all are going back to the game?

“This one is one of the more amusing images I still have archived from the late, great City of Heroes,” writes Logan. “I hated Crey Snipers. Even on a character who could really no longer be hit by them, such as my main hero Cyberman 8 in the following shot. ‘BOOT TO THE HEAD *SH-BOOMF!*'”

So, so many great city submissions last week, but I’m going to give this last spot to Skoryy for a unique view from Guild Wars 2. Anytime I get up this high in-game, I feel like Batman. Then I usually plummet to my death, unlike Batman.

“The neatest thing about mounts is how much of the map they’ve opened up to access. Here’s my little thief now taking in an incredible view of Divinity’s Reach,” Skoryy said.

Whenever I’m taking a long automated flight from point A to B in an MMO, I find myself looking for cool aerial pictures to take of the landscape below. Bar that, I take a picture of myself flying, because I am that vain. If you’ve done this too, well, wing ’em our way for this week’s screenshot challenge!

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!

Aerial shots – I suppose that could include space as long as it’s fairly close to a world. And I have some interesting shots recently snapped in Elite Dangerous.

1) This one’s a true “close to the ground” shot. Here – I’m practicing for a Canyon Race in my Eagle II. It’s fast and dangerous, but that’s why you use a cheap ship – there will be rebuy costs. Especially when you’re learning!

2) A sedate exit from a Starport by the Azhanti High Lightning.

3 High above a world I NEVER want to land on… But it’s beautiful in it’s own way. From a distance.

4) Later on, I’m doing some exploring in my old reliable Cobra III Blue Hayabusa and getting as close to a water world as we can currently get in-game.

5) If your jump point is at the right angle relative to the surface of a planet you are flying above, you can jump straight to hyperspace as long as you are not mass-locked. This can be as low as 3 or 4 KM up. And that’s where I was above the starport I had just left. I am amused by the notification in the lower right that I’m SPEEDING. Well YEAH I’m speeding! I’m jumping to light-speed less than 4 KM above your starport! Heh.

Aerial shots?

Well, I finally got my Suraku the Azure Netherwing Drake flying mount in World of Warcraft, so yep, I can offer a pic.

Was the hideous grind to acquire the mount worth it? Ugh. No! (I hate grind in games, and rarely do it)

Am I very happy to have my Netherwing Drake mount? Yes!

Go figure.

Cheers, all

I chose one with the pink nubs on its head…

“I think those are horns, Uta.”

Playing around in the opening moments of Blade & Soul. Still trying to get a hang of how to take a decent action screen shot! So nothing much for the challenge this week, but here are 3 that I liked.

Second Life is best if you want to have many options for traveling. Every vehicle you can imagine, or can build yourself. Or you can just fly like Superman using pageup/pagedown keys. or teleport. anywhere. anytime.

I don’t have any screenshots, but I do have my first ever Widowmaker Play of the Game. It’s not even a great PotG, but I’ve actually been trying to play her lately, and sometimes I even hit what I’m aiming at.

Ok. So for this week’s screenshot challenge:

It wouldn’t be Blade and Soul if it didn’t have interesting outfits and Wushu gliding. Case in point? My Gunner, Haliee, gliding around in her Jammies. Yup. She can fly around in her cute night shirt complete with little cat patterns.

Here she is as she approaches her landing. “The runway is clear zero-niner”.

Thank you both :) I love taking screenshots in MMO’s and FFXIV is probably my favorite to do so in. Such a beautiful game!
