Skyforge is becoming a hot property for bored summer gamers looking for something new to explore. Reader Tyler reports in from the recent closed beta, saying that the game is “incredibly gorgeous” to behold.
“I’ve mainly been playing the Alchemist, which is very fun and unusual,” he sent in. “Basically a lot of using the mobs as guinea pigs in various chemical experiments that usually end with things exploding and/or melting. I can’t stop singing ‘She blinded me with science!’ the whole time I’m playing it.”
I’m all for irresponsible science in video games and any dinosaur-related sectors of the private industry. Speaking of which, we’ve got Cretaceous visitors, demon girls, and more for you in this week’s round-up of player-submitted screenshots!
Reader Ekphrasis sets up this next chilling tableau: “One of my absolute favourite missions in The Secret World comes from one of the main story quests courtesy of Imbeda. He’s a demon who not so subtly suggests getting naked and taking a dip in his bathhouse. He even offers to scrub your back, which is pretty tempting! What? Have you seen how much Filth there is in Tokyo? We need all the help we can get to be rid of it!
“Anyway, on to one of my favourite missions — finding Imbeda’s missing mercenary squad in the carpark. It’s dark, spooky and creates that feeling of apprehension when you just know something is going to happen, soon. Like a very good thriller movie but with you as the star. Why is it spooky? Creepy little demon girls! Getting away from these touch of death monsters can be quite the undertaking if you watch where you’re going!”
I’ll admit that I’m really horrible in getting my characters to emote before taking their pictures. I have way too many stock-standing-still poses as a result. So kudos to Enikuo for getting this high-energy WildStar pic!
“We decided to use the the mentoring feature to help my sister quest in the starting area,” Enikuo wrote. “But we ended up dancing instead.”
Nothing wrong with that at all.Final Fantasy XIV’s Hyperion server to play with some friends from work,” reader Duane submitted. “This lass is kind of a first for me. I have always either played a character based off of me, a bestial character (or as close as I can get), or a female character based on one of my sisters. It got me thinking: Would I be able to relate to a human character of a different ethnicity than me? Well, I don’t know about relating to her, but I think I’m in love!”
It seems that just about everyone is playing the dino-tastic ARK: Survival Evolved lately except for me. I need to pony up and get a copy, I guess, because my life isn’t complete until I get to make dinosaurs poop on command.
Anyway, the winner of this column’s It Came from the Comments Section! is SkipE’s hilarious screen capture of an intrusive T. Rex. “Here’s Johnny! This was right before it ate me Jurassic Park-style,” SkipE said.
