One Shots: Christmas delivery

    
13

We all know that Amazon delivers pretty much everywhere with its crazy two-day shipping, but did you realize that the company could do so in space? We have actual photographic proof of this in Star Citizen, thanks to Deekay Zero.

“Few things are more festive than last minute Xmas shopping and rushing to catch the train at Lorville!” he said. “Many mmorpg’s have little girls with big guns as a trope, but does your MMO have NO girls and EVEN BIGGER guns? I DON”T THINK SO! (I’m really tired of playing male toons. Can first quarter 2019 get done already please?)”

So… what’s in the box? Is it a release date? ‘Cause that’d be tremendous.

“I don’t do Christmas cards,” Rafael posted. “I’m not against the practice. It’s just a pain to get the right photo. But Black Desert does make it easy, doesn’t it? I could take these caps to Kinko’s and walk out with all the cards I need right now. Now, if I could automate the rest of the process, I would definitely maybe do it.”

You really should — that’s a stunning pic!

Of course, Christmastime means different things for different people, especially if you’re a semi-rotting reanimated post-human trying to survive the holidays in the World of Warcraft.

Hirku’s got it made, though: “Here we see my Undead Priest gathering ingredients for the Christmas feast.”

Yum?

Lt. Cmdr. JonBuck send in this picture from Star Trek Online and Q’s Winter Wonderland. I’d say that this is far too unrealistic for Star Trek, but then again, have you actually watched the show? It’s a parade of zany non sequiturs sometimes! This would be downright normal.

“Getting a white tree in FFXIV was a big thing!” exclaimed Toy Clown. “Especially with how bad I am at conducting a choir!”

Any festival that you can walk away from with arms loaded full of cosmetics, toys, and home decor is a good festival. Merry Christmas!

As we prepare for our last One Shots of 2018, I have a special favor to ask of our readers for this week’s screenshot challenge. How about you go back through the 2018 archives of this column and pick one or two favorite submissions that someone else did — and then repost them telling us what you liked about them! Kind of a “reader’s favorite” award show thing!

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!

It was brutal trying to narrow all of my favorite shots down to one…dozen. And even worse picking one out of that, but in the end I’m going with Toy Clown’s BDO shot:

I like this shot of Wildstar by dthblayde. It’s a bittersweet shot. I also like the shot of an Ewok by — whoops! That’s a squirrel in Rift, isn’t it? It’s colorful and really pretty! That one’s by Lucky Jinx. There’s many more I loved, but didn’t want to make a post with 30 pics. >>

Happy Holidays to everyone and to my favorite columnist here at Massively!

Fav shot is a tuff one. I like so many of them especially those from Blade & Soul, Elder Scrolls, FFXIV, & Black Desert.

The ones from the older MMOs really bring the member berries too. One shots and WRUP send me back to revisit games throughout each year.

It has been a while since I have been in BDO and it has been on my mind lately. I love the landscapes and weather there, so these are currently standing out to me.

Got to be this Shlag special of an already popular scene. And really liked this shot of flying in the Blasted Lands taken by Hirku. Looking forward to stepping back into WoW Classic next Summer.

Ok! Found one that had me perplexed. Skoryy posted this gem.

It has been a while since I played FFXIV, so I’m not sure, but this is from the Manderville story line?

Anyway, great timing on the cap, Skoryy. Or is this one of those MMO clipping issues? Heh.

I’ll see what else I can find a bit later because there have been some great caps.

Yeap, part of the Hildibrand questline.

Ok. I’m digging through the archive. It will take a little time as the egg nog is kicking in and it looks like it had a bit of rum in it.

“I don’t do Christmas cards,” Rafael posted. “I’m not against the practice.”

I am! Occasion cards of all kinds are an abominable waste of money. Don’t support the Hallmark-Industrial Complex!

Lol! I am an occasion card influencer.

This shot from Kawaii Five-O is my pick. In a word, flawless.

It is a great cap, no question.
