One Shots: Flying lessons
Massively OP Readers, you are clear for take-off. Please cross-check the cabin, assume flight positions, and break out the best aerial screenshots you have. Fair flying and Godspeed!
Rafael zooms into view for our headlining picture today from a game that he has only recently discovered: Blade and Soul. Oh, I josh, I josh. Rafael’s the site’s premiere B&S evangelist, so beware if he corners you in a crowded tavern!
“It wouldn’t be Blade and Soul if it didn’t have interesting outfits and Wushu gliding,” he said. “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.'”
But if we want a really great aerial shot, we’re going to have to rise out of the atmosphere. Cap’n Logan Darklighter is our tour guide for this next one.
“I have some interesting shots recently snapped in Elite: Dangerous. Here I am high above a world I NEVER want to land on. But it’s beautiful in it’s own way. From a distance,” he said.
Always like to see first-timers join us for the One Shots party, so let’s welcome Goom!
If you can’t have a hoverbike in real life, you might get something similar in an MMORPG. Goom shared this one: “I love taking screenshots in MMOs, and FFXIV is probably my favorite to do so in. Such a beautiful game!”
If you can’t get a hoverbike, what about a magic flying disc? Utakata appeared in this picture which, as you may note, has nary a shade of pink in it to be seen. What happened to you, girl, and where are the pigtails?
Here Utakata is flying her Goblin priest in the “hallowed” halls of World of Warcraft’s Undercity. It still ranks as one of my all-time favorite towns in that game.
High praise goes to Kawaii Five-O for this Black Desert picture. It’s so stunning that it reminds me all over again how incredibly beautiful this game can be.
“Not an aerial shot, but here’s one traversing the desert during a freak snowstorm,” he said.
What NPC do you love to hate? Have you ever taken a screenshot despite that fact, perhaps for use on a dart board later? Share a pic of a character you loathe and tell us why for this week’s screenshot challenge!
