One Shots: Gassy and bloated


I do think that we, as a culture, have become disturbingly obsessed with selfies, but I will always make an exception for anyone who finds himself standing in front of an enormous gas giant.

“I wanted to share my screenshot for One Shots for the first time,” sent in Stormheim. “The screenshot is from Destiny 2. I don’t still have cool stuff and gear, but its kinda awesome to take a selfie with Jupiter behind you.”

If nothing else, Jupiter has the effect of making the subject look thin and light in comparison. Kind of like standing next to Jabba the Hutt or a YouTube content creator’s ego.

If your MMO has neat camera tools, don’t neglect them! I wish more games would have screenshotting features like Final Fantasy XIV.

FFXIV has the /gpose feature and mid-fight I had the inspiration to use it. And yes, my character was dead coming out of /gpose, but the screenie was worth it!” said Toy Clown.

As a side note, is that a robot tree? Because the eyes.

“I was in a family-friendly, casual guild in World of Warcraft, so for me the most ‘harrowing moment’ was trying to form a group for an instance,” writes Camelotcrusade. “Here I am in 2005 waiting for such a group. The other two gave up, but I’m sticking with it, and thanks to my regenerative troll blood I think I’m going to make it. (Some say she’s still there.)”

Everyone keeps raving about these Guild Wars 2 mounts, and darn it if Skoryy doesn’t show up other games with this sweet ride. As much as I applaud MMO artists for creating these living, breathing beasts of burden, it disappoints me that there is not maintenance involved. No giant poop scooping, no feeding it covertly underneath the dinner table, and no walks outside at 10:00 p.m. at night while your toes slowly freeze as your animal attempts to find that one square inch of the yard that she hasn’t peed on yet.

“The maps I always liked to play the least in Diablo 3 were the ones located in heaven,” Zulika Mi-Nam said. “However playing them in 3rd person sneaky bow mode is fun in Warframe.”

I really like the dreamy white look of this one. It looks like the future co-opted by Apple.

It’s time for your weekly screenshot challenge! The theme this week is “weird technology.” Whether it’s scifi, steampunk, or a gerbil powering a tank, let’s see pictures from MMOs that have some odd tech or equipment at play.

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 with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!
