One Shots: The Mo Army marches on

    
37

Has there ever been a figure as majestic, as inspiring, as armor-plated as Massively OP mascot Mo? Probably, but that didn’t stop our antsy readers from spreading the visage of Mo into online games far and wide.

Amorey got a great perspective with this one: “Well what a coincidence — as you were posting One Shots this week, I was retaking Weathertop in Lord of the Rings Online with my little Guardian who looks remarkably like Mo.”

Sometimes, Mo may appear in spirit rather than form. Or so claims Minimalistway, who I suspect wanted an excuse to screencap this Final Fantasy XIV moment.

“I think Mo will be a Manderville … eh .. person?! I’m both happy and sad that I did all Hildy quests in A Realm Reborn. Now I have to reach next expansion for more silliness.”

Meanwhile, Bryan did a pretty great job creating a “Mo-ish” outfit in Elder Scrolls Online. What lies behind the helmet? That’s a question that will never be answered, at least until MOP’s Larry draws it and triggers the apocalypse.

IronSalamander8 is here, and you know that means we’re in for some Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. He does Mo justice here, especially with all of those ’80s lasers!

Hikari calls this one “Mo-inspired,” which is a definition that I’m sure means “whatever I want, doesn’t this Star Trek Online pic look pretty?”

“Be it jet setting around exotic planets or making it rain on the golden yacht, everyone’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed Mo.”

And that brings us to our weekly screenshot challenge, which is to take a picture of your favorite public transportation in an MMO — whether form that might take!

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 Dont really have any public transportation pics. Instead here are my favorite pics I’ve taken this week

I love the second shot.

I love all the Mo pics! Really fun stuff, folks, Thank you! :-)

I don’t have any interesting MMORPG screenshots this week (does anybody need still more Star Trek Online shots from me? Didn’t think so).

Instead, I figured I’d post a screen from the mobile game I’ve been playing on my PC, thanks to the free Bluestacks program you can download, if you so desire.

So, here’s my favorite team of personally-chosen Light Side Star Wars characters in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, ready to do battle with some pesky droids run by the game.

Sharp-eyed fans of the Star Wars franchise can likely identify all my characters here: Chirrut Imwe, from Rogue One; Clone Wars Chewbacca; Scarif Rebel Pathfinder (again, Rogue One); Bastila Shan from the original Knights of the Old Republic single-player rpg; and Visas Marr from the Knights of the Old Republic II sequel rpg.

Yes, Visas’ lightsaber is red, but she’s on the right team here, is all I can say without overtly plot spoilering KotOR II. :-)

And Qui-Gon Jinn? Well, he’s not my character.

The game has a feature where you can temporarily borrow a copy of someone else’s character to use in a battle, and the available choices seem to be drawn from a pool of level-appropriate past and present players’ rosters — as well as the character rosters of any in-game friends you may have.

My handle in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is Dismas Vex, if you’d like to get temporary access to some of my characters as backup.

Lastly I purposely left the UI visible in this screenshot, in case any of you might be curious as to what the Bluestacks program looks like when you use it to play mobile games on your PC.

The right-most vertical tab? It shows the game’s in-game setting options, so how much is listed there will depend on what individual games offer.

Be well, everybody!

Really beautiful. Thank you!

Makes me wish I were there, instead of enduring the cold of winter here! :-)

Thank you for the feature Justin :)

Lotro’s form of transport is not as shiny and as fun as in other MMOs. A good old trusted horse will take you everywhere in Middle-earth and you’ll learn how to deal with a very sore bottom :p

But the landscapes in the game can be so vast, I found I really started to love the horses. I can stand a little sore bottom instead of constant sore feet. :-)

Thanks for the pics!

The big question now is do I have the fortitude to do it on my alt, which is on a different datacenter? At this point I don’t think so.

Reader
Vincent Clark

Oh wow, yeah…best of luck on that one! I don’t have the fortitude to do it on one character, let alone two :)

If at all it’s a “before the next expansion” goal. I plan to focus on just one healer (WHM), the tanks, and the DPS Jobs I enjoy.

As above, I’d say no. For me. at least, the fastest way to get dead-sick of a game I actually like is to over-grind.

If it starts to feel like work, you’re doin’ it wrong my friend! :-)

The alt will keep — that’s why they’re alts, after all.

My opinions, anyway,

I mean, if you enjoy grinding levels – you can do so. If not – I would not push yourself to do that. You can just do other things, like help others do stuff or just hang around in Limsa or FC house or at Quicksand tavern in Ul’dah if you can visit Balmung.

Indeed! Now, go do something as fun as possible in the game for at least a week. Doctor’s orders, Jon! :-)

Here’s a pic of my Arrow. It’s pretty dope, you know, when the game is actually working well and the dudes that have invested thousands of dollars in this game are being logical and reasonable about there being issues in the game they spent thousands on for fake spaceships.

The ships are generally so gorgeous, even in the Alpha game state — i Just wish that there was more game currently in place for me to play, is all. Thanks for this!

Get up, (get on up), stay on the scene, (get on up), like a Dragon Pulse machine…

They are ultra rare 3D printed models. We got them from watching streams here. :)

Favorite mode of public transportation…Aetheryte, of course :)
Favorite mode of personal transportation (this week)…a flying chair, naturally

It’s a great pic, as ever, Vincent, but I must confess that the character of Metron in the legendary Jack Kirby’s seminal New Gods comic book series, remains my favorite character with a flying chair. :-)

All apologies to your well-coiffed friend in the lovely screenshot!.

You get bonus points for the Jack Kirby mention. :)

This flying chair is still my most favorite mount in game, partially because it is a chair and not some generic glowy horse or dragon and partially because it was gifted to me by a random player long time ago.
