Do you miss Vanguard? It’s been a while now since that particular fantasy world closed its doors to players, but warm memories of the game continue to persist among former fans. Reader PJ sent in several screenshots of Vanguard, although he says that he unfortunately lost most of his pictures.
I like this one because of the perspective. It’s not only pretty, but when you see the tiny character on the right, you develop a whole new appreciation of the scope of this area.
We’ve got a great tour of the sights of MMOs for you today, so let’s get this party started!
“I’m willing to bet that many of you, like I, take screenshots of odd little details that you happen to notice in the game,” Reader Kaaz said. “While exploring through Issue 7 in The Secret World there are some crates you can jump to the other side of, and this picture is what you find on the other side.
“It’s a slice of summer in the middle of an Orochi Facility, not to mention a person who couldn’t deal with the experiments that went on there and committed suicide in a corner. It added a bit of a face and a conscience to the Orochi Corporation for me, that the people on the field didn’t necessarily agree with the orders from above.”
You all sure love your Final Fantasy XIV. Worn out those screenshot keys yet? I don’t blame you, I took a lot myself when I was trying out the game. Really pretty stuff — and weird stuff, too.
Reader UpfrontSalmon posits this aerial mystery: “No one knows what it is. No one knows who is flying it. If you’re trawling around the new zones you can occasionally spot this lonely, ominous vessel half-hidden by the clouds slowly passing through on its way to who-knows-where. Future content? Mysterious flavor? TUNE IN NEXT TIME TO FIND OUT.”
Do you ever try to emulate something old in a newer game? Reader Faction 3 did by decking out his character in Guild Wars 2 to look like a class from the first game.
“Here’s a ‘present’ from the past (see what I did there?),” he writes. “It’s my newly minted Mesmer rocking the look of the old Guild Wars Mesmers, only in a more updated way. All I need is a Rogue Bull and a Cane.”
For this week’s It Came from the Comments! pick, how could I not feature the Hot Dog King from Trove? I love this so much, it might just become my new avatar.
“I do have to post this one of a club world I came across yesterday in Trove,” Reader Siphaed said. “The whole thing is pretty advanced as there are two more giant wieners about half that size forming a dueling arch behind me (out of screen). Under the wiener there are four underground levels, including one giant soccer stadium as well. That club is very, very cool.”
