One Shots: Dancing in the dark

When the lights go down, the party animals come out, dancing to their dark gods and eating all of the really good snacks before I even get there. What is this, off-brand ginger ale? It’s Canada Dry or I am out of here, and you can just sacrifice whatever to whomever without me!

Hikari took this really striking picture from Conan Exiles: “Dark isn’t usually my thing (with a name like Hikari, did you think it would be?), but sometimes… Praise Set, Praise Yog!”

If Yog had a pet, would that be a Yog dog?

“This screenshot is from a RIFT quest called The Center of Oblivion which leads you into
a nightmare version of Port Scion and you meet up with the lovely Regulos,” sent in BalsBigBrother. “He kindly posed for a selfie with me before beating the snot out of me for the next hour and a half. This is by far the hardest fight I have done while questing through the story. It didn’t help that I was DC’ed a couple of times, one of which was while the boss was at 3% health just to really ramp up the frustration factor. I did have to step away at that point, make myself a cup of tea and then go back at it. The power of tea must have been too much for Regulos as I beat him shortly after that and I might have cheered quite loudly at that point.”

Way to go! [Achievement received: Snot Beater]

Rees Racer got sucked back in to Neverwinter thanks to a Twitch Prime promotion: “I’ve had a very nice week levelling my Trickster Rogue. It’s a lovely visceral experience in contrast to the ranged magic-based classes. I’ve now found myself in the Pirate’s Skyhold, which is home to a floating swamp at Mire’s Edge. One thing to be admired (but rarely mentioned) is the practical armour for each class, and its appearance. It is completely appropriate, and I can appreciate that. My companion War Dog doesn’t seem to mind the swamp at all, either.”

“After a number of weeks of not having any screenshots to offer here on The Justin Show, I’ve finally got some pics which might entertain,” said Mysecretid.

About time! I’ve been waiting weeks for this! This had better be something really amazing, because if I get one more butterfly picture…

No Man’s Sky Lead Developer Sean Murray has said that he and Hello Games received death threats because alien butterflies shown in the promo materials did not appear in the game at launch (!!!). The alien butterflies exist now, crazy people. Here’s one example.”

…CURSE YOU!

I love this mysterious and Dutch angle shot from Black Desert, courtesy of Toy Clown.

“This particular dark and gloomy road outside of Glish was one my character contemplated if she should travel down,” he said.

Well. Never going to know if the new Arby’s opened or not unless you go down there, man.

Very late to the party, but my friends and fellow Secret World Legends players were busy hosting a benefit for Lupus Awareness this weekend.

As for dark gods, we must harken back to Ren & Stimpy days. “It’s Yog, Yog, It’s big, it’s heavy it’s… um… hey… this tastes just like Powdered Toast…”

Thanks for the feature, Justin! I got the memo: no more butterflies! :-D

All I’ve got this week is a couple of screens from Destiny 2.

As usual, you’ll have to play match-the-captions, because the Skynet A.I. that runs the MOp servers likes to randomize things.

1 of 2: One of the Guardian bosses, Zavala, (he of the blue hue) chews out NPC Ana Bray and my character, because we went off and did something reckless and heroic without his permission.

Listen, Zavala, I must’ve watched the original Lethal Weapon movie twenty times or so when I was growing up (this was back before actor Mel Gibson turned out to be a massive dickhead), so I know all about being a renegade cop in the name of justice! I’m still not too old for this shit!!!

2 of 2: My character, NPC Ana Bray, and Zavala have a sad moment when we suddenly realize that she and I will probably never be invited to one of Zavala’s famous fondue parties ever again because of our behavior. Sigh.

3: Ever have one of those days? It’s okay, even heroic types in Destiny 2 have bad days. You’re not alone, my friend.

4: Flying my spaceship over post- Golden Age Mars in Destiny 2. This one’s my favorite.

Cheers, all. Thanks for sharing your pics!

*rolls in*
So I finally decided to check out Warframe but I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how not to get motion sick while sliding/bullet jumping/etc through the levels to an objective?

Nice picture. Looks like you’re having fun!
Thanks for sharing!

Any MOP commenters on the image (other than yourself)?

a couple of them read massively for my comments sometimes but they’ve posted maybe a handful of times in the past 6 years total.

Nah, just kidding, of course. Have a good time, y’all!!

Thanks for the feature and achievement award. I will make a badge that says [Achievement received: Snot Beater] and wear it proudly for all to see. If anyone asks me about it I will say “well it was a trial of tea and visceral combat with the forces of evil”, smile enigmatically and then walk away leaving them is a state of confusion :p

I am sure you are going to get a lot of No Mans Sky pictures but I am just going to stick with the one for now. I am not really sure how to describe this so I hope its a case of a picture is worth a thousand words. Found him on the first planet I was initially stranded on, he seems a happy enough fellow though not much of a conversationalist it has to be said.

This was um…err…a bachelor/stag party we threw for one of our FC members not too long ago. The less said about the half-naked lalafell the better. :)

P.S. Whatever you do, don’t stare directly into the eyes of the Roe in the back with the pig mask…resist!

Naked lalafells — yeesh.

Vincent, brother, I’m pretty sure that’s a felony in most states. It better not be your character! :-D

Cheers, pal,
