“You have to love randomly running across a band when you enter a building in Bree,” reader Yrys said in conjunction with this picture from Lord of the Rings Online.
I have to agree. Players congregating to perform music, put on plays, referee games, or otherwise doing mass social activities that aren’t revolving around murdering giant beasts always brings me to a screeching halt in MMOs, for these are almost always worth checking out.
It’s a virtual party today in One Shots! Grab some of those delectable colors, take a tall drink of perspective, and party like it’s 1999 and there are only three MMOs on the market!
“Um, you might want to turn around!” reader Siphaed warns. That’s how I live my life, honestly. I never turn around. Gets me into a lot of accidents.
A while back I issued a screenshot challenge to show your character performing emotes, and reader François stepped up to meet that exhoration with this Final Fantasy XIV picture.
“Here is a screen for the weird emote challenge,” he writes. “Is my Arcanist playing mime? Of course not; he’s picking apples. Clearly.”
“Here is a shot from EverQuest 2,” reader Rozyn submitted. “Sorry it’s just a boring character shots, but it’s the only time I think to take any! This is my little Fae Warden getting her groove on in Qeynos’ Elder Grove.”
I don’t think it’s boring at all — quite beautiful, really. Do you agree?
I got a kick out of reader ManastuUtakata’s rant about so-called “nightmare” creatures in the comments a couple of weeks ago and chose this picture of some scary moppets as our It Came from the Comments! winner this time around.
“While creatures walking around with their innards on the outside is certainly dinner inducing upchucking…they don’t have the creep factor my sample of TERA mobs do. Brought to you by the Elin Geographic Society, this is the stuff that will haunt you in your sleep.”
While I’d like to be able to issue a new screenshot challenge this week, it’s my sad duty to report that the queue of submissions is… completely empty. Seriously. Like bone dry. So if everyone reading this can submit at least one screenshot and a story, you would collectively fill my inbox to overflowing! Follow the directions below.
