One Shots: Beauty in profile

    
31

Let me be clear on this: You guys always post absolutely amazing pictures. One of the toughest tasks I have every week is picking just five of them to highlight for this column. But every so often someone submits a screenshot that is above and beyond even the normal excellence, and this week’s example of that comes from Vunak.

This is such a striking profile picture that uses the sun and shadow to great effect — I absolutely love this!

“This one I enjoyed so much I am using it as my avatar now in various places,” Vunak wrote. “Black Desert definitely has amazing scenery and graphics. Word on the street is they are working on a new engine as well, so maybe BDO starts looking even better if they deploy it for BDO as well as their new games.”

Now that Star Citizen has female characters, it’s time to send them out into the cosmos to explore! Deekay Zero was inspired from Captain Marvel’s “higher, further, faster” mantra when he whipped up these two examples.

Or if you’re in the mood to get quirky and goofy, head on over to Vincent’s Final Fantasy XIV account, where his Scholar is not taking life that seriously. Well, at least until he’s attacked by a bad guy and then has to beat said bad guy down with a giant book. A face smacked with pressed paper pulp never feels good.

Next on your tour of striking profiles is Xijit, who has something fascinating happening off the port bow in Elite: Dangerous if anyone would care to glance over to see it. Nah. Better stuff’s on Netflix anyway.

You’d think I would have grouped the profile pics and goofy gags together, but I do not have that kind of foresight, apparently! So we’re back into the realm of the whimsical, with Hikari’s adventures in Guild Wars 2’s Super Adventure Box. Anyone want a free killer bunny?

Have you taken any great screenshots this past week and would like to be featured in this column? Post them in the comments below along with the name of the game and a story or some thoughts about your marvelous photograph!

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!

Most of my screenshot-taking recently has been in Star Citizen 3.5’s test build. It’s pretty :)

I love the shot of the Dragonfly where it totally should NOT be.

“Drake Interplanetary does not endorse or condone landing in ArcCorp and jumping from roof to roof.”

aren’t the new armours and skinsuits just so fantastic? and soooo many of them (i mean somewhat ish beyond he different colours, some of which are very very nice)

and arc corp? just all around future af. i flew around looking for people to fight, found no one and wasn’t even mad.

i’ve done a bit of melting and what not and now have a tana a mako. trying to test the passenger gunner seat on the tana leads to the old ship power off bug and unresponsiveness. hoping it’ll get better by live. the mako i’ve had my eye on since i got eye balls on that lol ac player blockade. i also wanted to play around with the reliant having skin functionality a little bit.

super hyped for the new drug labs, need to read up on teh lore for the proper rp when playing both sides of the drug trade. lol

Don’t bring a giant space sword to a capital ship cannon fight.

Ugh. Looking at them again those screenshots don’t look as good as I thought.

Not a lot of photos this week as I’ve been playing a load of single player games and TD2 (which I posted some of last week.)

I did get my Reliant Mako news van in Star Citizen though. The camera turret UI isn’t as clean as I would like it to be (heck, they just got the 3rd person camera to my liking), but it still takes some nice shots.

And played AQW with MJ briefly.

I have a few other shots, but honestly, Natalyia got better versions with the widescreen so I’ll wait on those. :)

Okay, looking back I actually played a lot of MMOs this week… but I already posted those on Twitter.

Which game are these cityscapes from?

Reader
Hikari Kenzaki

Star Citizen. ArcCorp is a City-Planet. I took them with the Reliant Mako’s news turret. Seriously, a ship that flies around and takes photos was tailor-made for me.

i need to know EVERYTHING about the mako news turret functionality! YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS TELL ME

Reader

So far, it’s basically just a remote turret that hangs on the bottom of the Mako. The broadcast center doesn’t work yet except as an additional station.

My hope is that they will someday have some Lumberyard/Twitch magic that allows it to stream in and out of the Verse.

Our in-character Org concept partially involves the StarLight News network :)

i think i’m going to go live at arccorp depending on what mission content is there. maybe explore those twitch missions and collect some prison pocket collectables.

I almost cried when i went to SAB realm? place? whatever they call it, it’s a nostalgia heaven, reminds me of old Sega games, for first time players SAB itself is the best reward.

Is this column for screenshots or artwork/fanart? Just curious. I have been doing sketching lately (well, started almost a year ago, still very much amateur). I post it a lot on BlizzardWatch and my own Facebook, and I’m always looking for new groups willing to provide advice.

If this is a screenshot-based thread though then no worries, figured i’d ask :)

Reader
Hikari Kenzaki

The article features screenshots taken in MMOs. Some of us consider that our art. :)

You could probably post art here, but we might not have the most expert opinions to offer.

Nah that’s ok. If it’s for screenshots, that’s fine. I get the theme :) They are very good shots. I’m not a good photographer virtually or with the camera heh
