One Shots: Pointy things in space

    
47

Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of a multi-trillion credit starship that’s in absolute mint condition! As you drive it off the lot, please remember that you need to take the best possible care of it by changing the oil every 3,000 space miles and… wait, why are you going there? Toward that giant, razor-sharp pointy thing? You know it’s going to scratch up your paint job, don’t you? Your warranty does not cover that.

Well, Captain Chris in Star Trek Online is such a hotshot seat jockey that he does not care. “Here is a picture I took with my newly opened Discovery Constitution Class defeating the Crystalline Entity!”

Your dealer is not going to cover that damage. Just saying.

One burning question that I’ve had for the upcoming Star Citizen is… will there be coffee? I mean, I’m not playing it if we lack strong caffeination in the dark void of the night.

Fortunately, Dirty Klingon has photographic proof that in Squadron 42, at least, we’ll be able to get a cup of joe before our fleshy bodies are evacuated to the cold vacuum of space. It’ll keep you alive and warm for that extra 10 seconds!

Our own Tyler is having fun with filters, it seems: “Wanting to learn about the game after our stream, I made a villain alt in City of Heroes. Since elf ears were an option, of course I made an Elf character. Imprisoned for centuries, she has re-emerged to wreak vengeance on the humans who stole her people’s world. I am impressed by how well CoH holds up as a new player joining in 2019. I’m still not sure it’s 100% the game for me, but I definitely see the appeal.

What does Bree do when she’s not trying to wrangle the MOP staff like the cranky toddlers that we are? She’s zooming around in Star Wars Galaxies making serious bank with her greatest weapon: a spreadsheet.

“Here’s my SWG Legends Chef vrooming her way across Tatooine,” she said. “You hear the music in your head, don’t you? You know you do.”

And I’ll share one of my recent adventures in Lord of the Rings Online’s Mirkwood, where I got to tangle with a spider big enough to give those kids from Stranger Things nightmares for life. I’ll be honest, I kind of feel bad for the spider. He had big spider dreams, dreams of spinning a web so big that he’d catch one of those juicy giant eagles, and now those dreams come crashing down because he’s been kneecapped by a Hobbit.

Feel free to post whatever screenshots you’d like from your recent adventures in the comments below, but if you’d like an additional challenge, comb through your folders and see if you can’t find an example of Big vs. Small (or small vs. big) to share with us!

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!

I have too many shots of Shadowbringers that I’m dying to share so instead have a shot of Coerthas

Another dapper miqo’te pic. This time in the Scion Adventurer’s gear. I’ve started to do healing with White Mage. Healers are in demand right now so queues are instant.

the 300i series is a touring dream come true for certain. a325a specifically good in a pinch if some combat breaks out on a prohibited goods run ;)

thx for the feature!

You see a lot of big monsters in MMOs, but occasionally, you get something more epic. Or in the case of SWTOR, to be something more epic. :)

Plus, some more Star Trek, because STO does pretty spaceships.

This is why I didn’t post the ancient relic picture from BDO. I knew Natalyia had a better shot. That ultra wide monitor and BDO combined with skill make for amazing panoramic shots.

Back into BDO. I have missed the landscape and looking far off into the distance.

Remember when one of the people involved with the release of The Division 2 game insisted that their game was “not political” and most of us laughed?

Well, I guess what he really meant was that Div 2 doesn’t explicitly talk about politics, but if you’ve ever seen a symbol, or met a metaphor, it’s there.

Two of these pics were taken in the ruins of a museum, and what you can’t see from the still pics is that, not only are the displays damaged, but they spark, and flicker, and show other signs of clear dysfunction. The symbolism is fairly strong.

Cheers, friends!

Romulans are by no means a short people, but Star Trek Online’s playable Gorn can absolutely break rendered cutscenes. My eyes are UP HERE, buddy.

New Romulus is a gold mine for screenshots like this.

My cat would say hi, Uta, but she’s too busy sleeping in a sunbeam in this very recent picture. Yes, she looks different here — sometimes, she looks small and sleek, other times, she’s a shaggy fursplosion.

Thanks for the pic!

Hee hee! I tried to ask her about that, but all she would say was that “unit operational security would not allow her to confirm or deny”. And then she went back to sleep. Of course. :-D

Cheers!

Where are you at Metrica Province, that zone with Skrittsburg, or that zone with the volcano and 2 World Bosses?

Reader
Utakata

That picture was about year or so ago. One can tell as I am sans-Poharan extensions on the pigtails…

…but too answer your question, I think it’s Lycandi Foothills in Moonwater Plains. o.O

I thought that was GW2.

Oh…that’s a Lyn picted (Blade & Soul). Where many of their ears are upright…unlike the Asura, whose ears flop down. /Bookah
