One Shots: My name is Captain Vanity
As I’m off on vacation this week, I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to cull through the previous One Shots comment section for great pics like I usually do. So I’m going to have to beg your forgiveness for a little indulgence here, because in this edition, I’ll be sharing nothing but my own screenshots. Feels like a cheat, because I do that all the time in normal news articles and columns, but why not?
First up is my tribute to the late, great Marvel Heroes. However sad it went out, I had some great times in that MMO and loved the crazy superhero encounters. Such as, in this instance, Captain Marvel giving Carnage a little something to think about before he swings that hand-axe around.
I’ve been part of a Dungeons and Dragons Online weekly group in which we all rolled up new characters and started going through all of the game’s missions. Such a blast, I highly recommend grouping for this game! Anyway, I thought it was both genius and a tease for the last mission of the newbie island to show off a dragon and get you this close… while NPCs fought it and you ran away. You’re only level 1, after all!
One of my screenshotting habits this past year is to try to get really good, up-close shots of enemy mobs. So much art and work goes into them, yet we actually see and recognize so little because they always are in motion and we’re trying to kill them. This tree-thing is from LOTRO, and I’m deeply impressed by how creepy the artists made it.
WildStar’s housing still takes my breath away, especially when I witnessed what far more skilled people could do with the system. A couple of years ago I toured around this absolutely amazing house that was built from scratch, and it’s become the standard of excellence for me ever since.
I haven’t been a human lowbie in World of Warcraft in ages, certainly not since Cataclysm, so I had some fun tooling around Elwynn Forest a few weeks ago. I definitely remember Princess the boar, although I don’t recall her being this big — or having that award pinned on her. Wait, HOW is it pinned on her?
Have you been out and about with friends or random strangers lately in MMOs? For this week’s screenshot challenge, post a picture or two of those grouping adventures and let us know how they went!
