One Shots: Something’s fishy here…

    
19

At first glance, it looks as though Vincent has been treed by a giant floating koi and an armored chicken. If we’re honest, this would be enough to tree most anyone if caught in this peculiar situation.

Then again, this is standard happenings for the adventurers of One Shots.

“That moment you realize that fish is back on the menu in Final Fantasy XIV,” said Vincent. “You in danger, girl.”

Last week we asked for cool shots that took advantage of lighting in MMORPGs, and I think that this campfire pic from FFXIV is a terrific example of what can be done with fire, shadow, and the faces between.

“I really like the contrast of this one from a crossover event that got me a sweet flying car as a reward,” said Bereman.

Here’s a picture from Ichi Sakari that makes a strong case for character collision. I’m not sure what’s happening here in Star Citizen’s break room, but it’s freaking me out the longer I look at it. Maybe the bottom guy’s about to give the top two a piggy-back ride?

GOD RAYS. Developers love god rays. If the lens isn’t flaring in your face at a sunrise, sunset, or winsome smile, then that’s a wasted opportunity. Here, Hurbster is taking in the view of Davon’s Watch in Elder Scrolls Online.

The lighting at this time of day in Kamasylvia was excellent and made it hard to resist creating a Forest Witch pose in Black Desert,” said Toy Clown.

Forest witches may seem scary, boys and girls, but remember that they’re usually desperate to use proper facilities that have actual toilet paper instead of scratchy leaves and non-flushing plumbing.

You need a challenge and I need pictures. For this week’s screenshot challenge, give me something about love — whether it be from a recent Valentine’s Day event, a guild get-together, or a star-crossed romance. As always, you can just post whatever you like as well!

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!

Something about love, huh? How about some love from one of the best written characters in game? From inspector Hildibrand, XOXO ;-)

I had to make it a gif instead of screenshot because no screenshot can express that much love ;-)

Sheogorath is like Star Trek’s Q character on really, really bad drugs (or really, really good drugs, depending on your perspective!).

The character is a total hoot, and always hilarious, but you can never stop wondering when he’s suddenly gonna turn on you, and you’ll be running for your life.

The voice actor for Sheo must go all-out when voicing the character. It certainly sounds like he’s having a great time! :-)

Thanks for the pics!

…sometime it’s about those quiet moments…where all the world seems to have gone wrong, while you still have something precious and hopeful to sit or stand by and protect.

Love? Well, you know what I’m going to post.

Or do you?

Let’s take this one to focus on my favorite kind of love. Love of chosen family.

Be it the wonderful people at Happy Tentacle Radio, all the people in Shiny Land and MOP or the person who sits around playing video games and watching TV with you all the time.

We’ll even throw in a video for fun.

With Liz, it’s a possibility. Her hero name is Spectra-Lass and her powers are Green Lantern/Rainbow Girl inspired. :)

What game is the gladiator looking picture from? It says BnS when I hover over it, is it really Blade and Souls? I don’t remember that aesthetic when I played it. Anyway, cool pic. I have a soft spot for Ancient Roman era style aesthetics.

It’s from Conan Exiles: Blood and Sand cosmetic DLC.
The stream for this DLC is below. It’s a fun set.

A bit of contest : the year was 2014 , the occasion was a musical play me and my kin wrote and performed just outside Bag End to celebrate Bilbo’s Birthday. The play was called There And Back Again. Awesome memories not much of love but of friendship.

Also bonus pic are two NPCs from Gondor , just to stay on the topic of ‘Love’

A moment of peace and reflection…before the chaos of patch 5.2 hits.

P.S. Thanks for the feature @Justin

In some way, that’s a very “rock star on stage” pose, Vincent. It looks like she’s about to start into the next song :-)

Thanks for the pic!

SWGL: Happiness is finding a friend you lost contact with for nearly 10 years and picking right back up in the friendship where you left off. Groovy!

I enjoyed the character of Visas Marr so much from my recent time playing the patched and restored version of Knights of The Old Republic II on Steam, that I was inspired to create her “descendant” as a character in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Here, the visually-impaired (but Force-sighted) Miralukan Jedi poses — but her companion, HK-55, hardly seems impressed.
