One Shots: Kneel before Zod

    
65

As if MMOs didn’t already give us big enough heads, what with everyone treating us as if we were the saviors of the world and the only hero (along with a million others), now we have games literally bowing down before us.

Reader John got his ego fix from Star Wars: The Old Republic: “At some point in the Sith story I had my own group of cultists, and I miraculously had the wherewithal to hit print screen just as they were all beginning to worship me. I thought it captured the essence of the Sith story well: It’s all about YOU, man.”

Here’s another look at the late lamented Stargate Worlds’ beta from Commander Hicks. Hicks shows us what looks to be a female character doing something suspicious to a shuttle. Maybe blowing up the beta so the rest of us can’t get in?

Nothing like playing a Lalafell in Final Fantasy XIV to give you perspective on what size really is. Reader Roger (Roger) took this picture of a skygazer as he sailed off to meet the ambassador of Ul’dah.

He was never heard from again.

“There’s no special story behind this screenshot, just that The Secret World’s Jake Hama reminds me of Frank in Donnie Darko!” reader Ekphrasis submitted.

It’s such a sad image, too. If I was meeting the end of the world, I wouldn’t be cosplaying as Roger Rabbit.

There were just tons of great pictures from which to choose for this week’s It Came from the Comments!, but for some reason I really latched on to this shot from JudgeDavid in World of Warcraft. I think it’s how he’s taking a picture through something that gives it an interesting quality.

“So my main and alts have retired from their garrison’s to various parts of Azeroth, in this case the farm home in Pandaria at Halfhill, near the market. It’s a nice view and all of the freedoms that the pretty landscape provides is there whenever wanted. I always liked that view from the farm.”

Got to admit that while the comments section is always hopping in One Shots, you all have started to ignore the email side of this column. I’ve been getting very few submissions as of late and would really appreciate some more. So send them in with your stories, please!

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

11 it was. :)
Either way, thanks for hooking up with me. The company was still very much appreciated.

Meta/Note: Sorry Bree ‘n Company, we had to use your comment section as a temporary party chat channel for B&S for the reasons above. I hope you don’t mind. If you do, please send the bill to NCSoft for the inconvenience. Either way, my apologies for this. :(

ManastuUtakata Ekphrasis I think I read restrictions are until Level 11?

Could be wrong, thanks so much for following me around and dealing with the charades… I’m going to try hit 11 and then hopefully we can actually chat. I have my main on Mushin but cross server chat doesn’t work.

ManastuUtakata Ekphrasis Yar – you just entered my instance – thank you for figuring it out. Chat restrictions suck!!

I can read what you type though – so we’ll try charades. I’ll jump for yes, sit for no. lol

Okays…that what was going on. I thought you where being funny. So you’ll have to hurry up to lv 10…and hope I’ll have a sleepless night because I have the flu sometime in the near future again. :(
…btw, that does absolutely nothing to evade the spam which is not coming through on any private channel or communication I am aware of.
Anywhoose…we’ll talk hopefully soon. And thanks for trying. :)

Hey – saw you online but I *think* the chat restrictions are in effect as my characters on your server were under level 10 ?

I could see your messages but mine weren’t coming up – and I couldn’t invite you to party.

Way to go NCSoft… block legitimate users but do nothing to stop the chat spam…

Great, I’ll check it out. Yep. Friends list can also be expanded if you hover over the name and find the drop down button – You can see all the characters and which server they reside on. (Kinda handy!)
I’m on during evenings (Australian eastern time) from about 8pm, which I think works out to your mornings? So that might make weeknights difficult but weekends we should be able to cross paths!
You can email me btw – if that makes it easier. Gmail. “DynatosEkphrasis”

Either Utakata, Otogi or Ichigo (Jiwan) are my 3 mains and currently play them the most. And I am usually on around 8:00 pm ST hour to the wee hours. I am not sure what your Friend’s list tells you about me, but it appears I have your account name, and can tell if you are on region wide by hitting F4. Or least I think that’s how it works….unless that’s specifically server related.
…anyroads, thanks for looking out for me. And I can arrange to come on at alternate times too just to touch base. let me know what works best for you. :)

We will catch each other, I promise – and I’ll be happy to help wherever I can. :)

Which character do you play the most and on what server?

My main is on Mushin but I’ve rolled a couple on Jiwan to experiment with other classes. (Still love Destroyer the most though – so I might re-roll another Destroyer to join you. If you give me a main character you play, I can focus on matching up to your level)

God yes! Typically I go in one of two directions. Giant women or tiny dudes. I made a lyn today. Bed adorable.
