One Shots: Getting all down and cozy

    
15

I love a good cozy place in an MMO, moreso if it’s got a fully stocked snack bar and some of my all-time favorite heroes willing to hang out with me. So how about finding a place to settle down in Lord of the Rings Online?

“In a game full of cozy places, Tom Bombadil’s house was a memorable one for me because of the frustrating maze I had to navigate to get there,” shared Hirku. “It was a genuine relief to see Tom skipping about and be greeted with that joyous theme when I entered.”

I’ve always wished that this house layout would be available as a player housing option!

Elder Scrolls Online may just be the most visually stunning MMORPG behind Black Desert Online,” said Godnaz.

I picked this lush vista from a whole album of equally lovely (and occasionally horrifying) pictures. It’s exactly the kind of place that draws you right into a fantasy realm.

Since World of Warcraft (still) doesn’t have player housing, Utakata has to take shelter at the local Comfort Inn. Ever notice that none of these inns have any doors? Guess there’s no such thing as privacy or sound sleep in Azeroth…

“I just noticed while playing Star Trek Online today that, during the most-recent game maintenance, the developers swapped in black Starfleet banners on the side of the Deep Space Nine space station which houses Quark’s bar,” Mysecretid said. “The banners are, no doubt, meant to honor actor Aron Eisenberg — who played Quark’s nephew Nog on DS9 — as the actor recently passed away far too young after a lifetime of serious kidney-related health issues. The banners seem to exist to honor both Eisenberg and the in-universe character he portrayed — a classy, subtle tribute by the developers, in my opinion.”

Hey guys! JonBuck is inviting us back to a free company apartment in Final Fantasy XIV! Feel free to walk around with muddy shoes and root through drawers all willy-nilly. It looks too nice otherwise.

Something annoying, you say?

Try getting an earfull from a relentless priest, every time when you just want to conduct your business or make a visit at the local bank, for s e v e n y e a r s!
-“Please go away, old man! I really don’t care about your Six Gods! I even killed one of them recently! Actually, most of the players you see here did the same to your god as well!”

There’s a similar NPC near the bank in Divinity’s Reach, giving thanks to Dwayna because everything’s going so well. That’s one long run of good fortune at this stage.

Things that annoy me…being indecisive about my choice of drink at the bar…and people who wear Halloween outfits in the first week of October :)

Since I don’t take pics of things that really annoy me – save that one poop quest shot from WoW Retail that was already featured here. So how about some shopping?

First up, is of Pottery Barn…where my Lyn Summoner and her ninja cat companion goes to select her latest dinner wear. And then it’s off to Whole Foods Market to fetch some groceries…

…though I am told, shopping is annoying to some. >.<

PS: Thanks the pic plug again, Mr. Justin! /bows

I don’t see pigtails… So I assume the nine-tails on you there are similar and numerous enough to make up for that.

Also is it rude to look at a stranger’s tail(s)? There aren’t a lot of fluffy-tailed folks in my neck of the woods, so I’ve never really had to think about this before. Can a person compliment someone for their bushy rear protuberance like one might compliment another’s outfit? Y’know, without it being… weird…

Please forgive my social ignorance 😳

Not all my characters are pink or have pigtails. That would become very boring and monochromatic. And since I believe in spice being the variety of life, my characters are of multiple colors, pigtails and tails…or lack there of.

Further more, it’s not rude to look at one’s tail. However, my Gnome Rogue has been told by the Draenei community that it’s very rude to sneak behind them and yank on their tails. I suspect this universal across all races and species. >.<

Ah, well. There are definitely things that annoy me. And I will get to that when I can pull away from Destiny 2. It will be a while though. A good long while.

In the meantime, how about a quick cap of what I’m looking at right now in D2?

F2P is looking pretty good right now, wouldn’t you say?

It would have to be a gif – the Circle Jumper. The inevitable individual who can’t seem to stand still for more than two seconds or they’ll explode. So they’re the one who’s jumping, non-stop, in a huge circle around whatever the most populated hub in the game is.

These organic perpetual motion machines are a worse immersion breaker than just about anything I can think of.
