Every once in a while I receive a One Shots email that makes one of my eyebrows climb super-high while the other one dives down my forehead. Then I have to go lie down for a while and call a loved one to talk through the confusing image that I saw. This is one such screenshot.
“One of the features in Trove I was really excited to discover was a slash command for time-lapsed screenshots,” reader James explains. “However, in practice I’ve found that the end result isn’t always the action shots during boss fights or shadow arenas that I was looking for. Instead, I often get these abstract images of particle affects. Most of them aren’t worth saving but every now and again I get a screenshot like this one, which I think is quite beautiful.”
Pretty lights. Swirly colors. You like? Be nice. Read on!
Apart from abstract art particle effects, I continue to be barraged by The Secret World players sending me pictures of their new hogs. I don’t blame them for their enthusiasm; we’ve been waiting a long time to get mounts in this game after all.
This motorcycle pic is from reader Estranged, who sets it against the backdrop of the lighthouse on the Savage Coast.
It’s kind of a war between The Secret World and Final Fantasy XIV in my inbox as of late, and I’m genuinely curious to see which faction will end up barraging me the most. No, that’s not an invit… nevermind, you’re already sending more in. Oh, go ahead.
Anyway, here’s reader Frank winging us a quality Heavensward shot: “This is my character, Axelay, enjoying a brief respite from the rigors of duty.”
Hey folks? Never, ever hesitate to send me in screenshots of your personal housing. The rest of the game is the same for everyone, but your house is where your tastes and creativity can be expressed. I love seeing that!
This one is from reader Melissa, who writes, “I really enjoy the strongholds in SWTOR and started dumping money into my new Nar Shaddaa palace. I excitedly opened up a staircase to a small vestibule, then read the two-plus-million credits price tag on the large main room and balcony and began to despair. But hey, my Imperial Agent has never been one to obsess over money! So here she is kicking back and enjoying her new vestibule-turned-bedroom. It ended up looking way better than I had anticipated!”
This week’s winner of It Came from the Comments! is BalsBigBrother’s colorful pose of his new TERA Gunner. I found his description amusing: “Something something horny girl something big guns something.”
