Which MMO has aged the best in terms of its graphics? While some games have enjoyed the benefits of visual upgrades, I have to tip my hat to the original art design of Guild Wars. It may have some rough spots, but by and large, it’s still beautiful today.
And interesting to explore in 2018, apparently! Miol sent this one showing something that should have come to the sequel: “Since Anet obviously doesn’t have the budget and therefore needs to callously blame Joko, that around 250 years later the Sunspears aren’t using spears anymore (origin lore for the new warrior double-dagger elite spec), missing the best opportunity to finally repurpose all those barely used underwater-locked spear skins, I’m quite enjoying the original lore of the Sunspears firsthand in GW1 now (with a spear)!”
Some of our readers had fun with the challenge to share screenshots that didn’t quite come out right for one reason or another. Remember kids, when something goes wrong, it’s never your fault — it’s the game’s!
Hikari tried to bring stunning fashion to us from Secret World Legends: “The dress, the lighting, the rain of Seoul in the background, the pose… but what the heck is up with that arm?!?! Ouch.”
“This World of Warcraft screenshot always makes me giggle,” said Little Bugbear. “I was trying to get a shot of The Dark Lady singing and got photobombed.”
Beware: Sylvanas does not like giggling. Giggling is infectious, and if that banshee ever laughed in a non-sinister way, the whole world might know that she’s a softie with an extensive Hello Kitty bedroom collection.
Have to go to the bathroom? Getting ready to say “sorry” for your bad behavior? Skoryy has a Guild Wars 2 pose for these situations and more!
“Instead of the ‘almost great,’ I wound up with this ‘accidentally great’ [picture] from my Tempests. Here, Mirka quietly prays for all the stacks of eye bleed occurring behind him. Auramancers are hella fun, y’all.”
Capn Lan blasts off to the frontiers in No Man’s Sky: “This is from a planet with no atmosphere that I found. The problem with this one is that right behind the camera is a mountain that prevented me from pulling the view back. What I wanted was my ship and character to be smaller against the airless sky. Couldn’t do it though as that pesky mountain was in the way. Sigh.”
Hey, I still think it’s incredibly beautiful.
Now that Battle for Azeroth has been out for a couple of weeks, I bet that many of your screenshot folders are filling up with new pics! This week’s challenge calls for you to share one or two of your best from WoW’s latest frontier.
