One Shots: What am I looking at here, exactly?

    
24

I guess I was asking for pure nightmare fuel when I issued a challenge last week to create the most disturbing and deformed avatars possible in MMO character creators. I thought they’d be bad, but… egads. Not this bad. I mean, It Chapter 2 looks scary, but I would rather have Pennywise visit in the night than this abomination.

“I’m glad I have Revelation Online installed, because WoW does not provide a good character creator,” said Minimalistway. “Revelation provides sliders, and sliders mean you can create horrors, like this fine fellow. Meet Henry!”

BACK TO THE ABYSS WITH YOU, HENRY.

Then, we got this Guild Wars 2 abomination that makes me crack up every time I look upon this Charr’s tortured visage. I mean, it’s Charr, it’s not going to win any beauty contests, but this poor guy’s going to get picked last to every ball.

Miol posted this after having some fun with the makeup screen: “‘No, please! Please, don’t do this to me!’ Sorry, in the end I didn’t have the heart to impose those changes on that Charr. It’s an exclusive hairstyle, mind you!”

Exclusive to Hell, you mean.

“Out in what No Man’s Sky calls an uncharted system (i.e. a system with no starbase belonging to one of the game’s three major races), I found this unusual-looking world, half of which was submerged in water,” said Mysecretid. “I figured these pics, taken from a tiny island, might be worthwhile; meanwhile, I’m working on building my underwater base. If it works out, I’ll post pics of it at a later date.”

Back to disturbing tableaus, the appropriately named Murderhobo gave us the dubious honor of creating a Massively OP billboard. With nude, angry clowns.

“I’ve already inflicted this upon the staff, but does it count as character creation if you skin your own corpses, stuff them and make a diorama? Because you can do that in ARK.”

Good to know. Good to know.

And if you weren’t blind yet, you’re about to feel your retinas explode with color overload, thanks to City of Heroes’ revival.

“Well, I don’t really do ugly screenshots, so I’ll have to give you a shot or two of Acid Rainbow, Praetorian Spectra-Lass, who can sometimes be difficult to look at for too long,” posted Hikari.

I thought that for the weekly screenshot challenges going forward, I’d give you an example from my own library as inspiration. So this week’s challenge is to show off something really dorky, either that the game did or you did while in the game. Here’s an eye-rolling moment from Blade and Soul:

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!

Dorky? Moi? Um… yes. Two examples – Conan Exiles announces “The Riddle of Steel”, and I immediately re-watch Conan the Barbarian, and build this set from the movie…

Or I then read that Disney+’s “What If?” animated series’ only announced episode is “What if Peggy Carter was given the SuperSoldier serum instead of Steve Rodgers?”, which resulted in “Captain Carter” in City of Heroes shortly thereafter.

Since I couldn’t pick which was a better (worse? :) ) example, you get both!

Is it dorky to still wish to be able to throw spears in GW2, after all those missed opportunities!
But watching these Sunspears practicing, is just rubbing salt into old wounds, Anet!
I don’t know, why I can’t let it go… :/

But at least I’m glad, that I could be of service and make Justin crack up (and maybe others not sleep) through last week’s challenge! /bow

also offtopic, nvidia users should update to the latest drivers to fix three major now disclosed sec vulnerabilities.

if you haven’t updated in a while you also get swanky massive performance boosts to your nvenc encoder so if you record or stream say hello to sexxxytime.

Not an MMO, but those faces…

…some regular here used to post screens of a DBZ based online game. Don’t know what it was called or if it’s still around. Or even accessible from our jurisdiction. But it was interesting none of the less. O.o

It was probably Xenoverse or its sequel, which are MMO-lite in that you can team up with other players to take on a series of battles. This is from the recent fighting game, FighterZ.

DBO is(was?) actually a thing. Complete with naked baby Goku.

Once Upon A Time, the bedrooms in Tabula Rasa leaped 30 feet simultaneously to the left in accordance with the theory of indeterminacy.

Many respectable parkgoers said they weren’t going to stand for that sort of thing, partly because it was a debasement of The Secret World, but mostly because there was no one in the rooms at the time.
