“Archet is small and Lord of the Rings Online is old,” Minimalistway noted, “Still I find this game can be beautiful. “In this screenshot is a Hobbit hunter starting his big adventure.”
Lucky Jinx took me up on last week’s screenshot challenge to show a “lonely” setting, saying, “Netherstorm in World of Warcraft has always had that depressing feeling of loneliness. Hated questing there, hated going back for this shot, but it was something I instantly thought of when I read the weekly challenge.”
