One Shots: Selfish selfies


Hey! Hey man, what do you think you’re doing? You’re a bleeding Division agent, all right? You’re the thin line that holds back anarchistic chaos while gluing back together society! This isn’t the time to go all tourist on us and start taking your picture with astronaut mannequins!

Or maybe it is. If you find yourself in The Division 2 like Ryuen here, you might fall prey to temptation when you visit a museum in Washington D.C. Just make sure to keep the selfies to a minimum, especially while the soon-to-be corpses around you are gasping their last.

Then again, if you happen across any giant floating islands in the sky, as Utakata does in what I presume is Blade and Soul, then this is a perfect time for a selfie. Slap a treacle quote about believing in yourself on it and you have the best Facebook cover photo ever. It is sure to make all of your friends and family feel inferior, as was your intent.

“I am pretty sure archaeologist would have a field day here,” Utakata.

I’m not exactly sure what is going on in this next picture other than to say that Warframe needs a lot of warm lighting in its ships and perhaps some comforting rainbows dashing out of the walls.

“Kitty made her way into the secret room of my ship in Warframe and the wouldn’t come out,” said Hugmonster.

I am afraid that Kitty got ate. Kibbles and Kittybits.

“I also like how SWTOR blends holidays into the world, since there has never, ever, ever been anything Christmas-related in Star Wars,” said Hikari. “Never.”

Um, “Life Day” would like a word with you on this. They shoe-horn that bizarre holiday in right on top of Christmas like it’s the Wookiee yuletide.

Does size matter? When you’re picking a race, absolutely!

“I’ll post up a quickie I took with a guildie some weeks back, which shows just how big Guild Wars 2’s Norn are compared to your smaller-than-average human,” sent in Skorry.

On one hand, bigger races have more real estate to show off outfits, which I love. On the other hand, bigger races obscure things in front of them and are more easily targetable in PvP. So it’s a draw.
