No lie, when I had pulled up this screenshot from reader Vincent, I happened to be listening to “Big Ape City” from Donkey Kong Land. That seals it: Today is going to be nothing but apes, all the way down. I’m fine with that.
I’m also fine with everyone taking a break from killing the local wildlife and just hanging out together. “My favorite social gathering spot is Fanow in the Rak’tika Greatwood in FFXIV,” Vincent said. “Side note: We all have that special friend who insists on being a bit…extra.”
Hey. I’m right here.
Frank will go to great lengths to clear out a pub for friends and cohorts: “We may or may not have killed some Grim Guzzler patrons to enjoy a bit of ‘camping’ in World of Warcraft.”
And is there any MMORPG hangout spot more iconic than Atlas Plaza in City of Heroes? I’m still waiting for a Marvel or Justice League movie where all of the superheroes line up for a costume contest while letting crime run rampant all around them.
At least Skoryy, Avenger of the Night, has priorities set straight.
Hikari takes downtime very seriously: “A handful of people meeting up anywhere in Secret World is grounds for a party. We’ll forego the usual grousing about losing many of the great places we used to gather for parties due to zone caps and show off some of the fun places that remain in SWL. The Albion is another great place to hang out and throw a party, though lighting there can also be problematic. In short, all of Secret World is a great place to gather, relax with old friends, and meet some new ones.”
But if the /sit emote is more your style, then pull up a chair and hang out with Rafael in Elder Scrolls Online.
“This picture nothing special but I do love hanging out in the Rosy Lion in Daggerfall,” said Rafael. “Stay there long enough and an adventure will follow. What does that mean? Well, for one, marks are easy to come by and two, well let’s just say it is profitable, OK?”
For this week’s screenshot challenge, we want to see some bloodthirsty, no-holds-barred combat… against a completely weak and pathetic foe! Take a picture of your character whaling away on a vastly inferior opponent and then post it so you can be ashamed for all time!
