In retrospect, outer space was asking for it. It was giving all of us a cold shoulder, being very distant, and lording its size over us like it was King of Universetown. So can you blame us for grabbing the nearest weapons we could find to blast a hole in space’s ego?
Scott was on the front lines of this grim war: “Sorry, nothing unique here… just a Human with a VERY BIG GUN behind her from an urgent quest in Phantasy Star Online 2… IN SPAAAACCCCEEEEEEE!”
As if all of that wasn’t bad enough, outer space also has a ghost problem. Fortunately for all of us, a daring Massively OP ghostbuster was on the scene to rectify this with diplomacy and a soothing ritual. A soothing ritual of extreme firepower.
“Yapbe’chugh vay’ vIta’rup!” Hikari coughed at us from Star Trek Online. “Or for those not familiar with the original Klingon theatrical version, ‘I ain’t afraid of no ghost!'”
Over in Star Citizen, Natalyia is contributing to the cause by taking the fight to big rocks that think they can just float there with impunity: “Here I am mining an angry asteroid in the Aaron Halo at the fringes of the system.”
And why is that rock angry? PBS is running a telethon this week and interrupting normal programming.
All right, we’ll come back down to earth just in time for a farewell party.
“This is my last screenshot before leaving WoW and WoW Classic,” wrote Minimalistway. i collected some Coin of Ancestry and bought this teal suit, with me is my companion and my friend Steve. I may come back for Burning Crusade Classic.”
You know why I’d love to live in Elder Scrolls Online? Because no matter where you went, you’d encounter very normal-looking, well-adjusted souls who weren’t trying to freak you out with their adventurer’s apparel.
Also, there’s be SmiteDoctor lurking in Summerset, but we try not to let this grim visage get to us.
Flex those print screen-mashing fingers, because you’ve got a screenshot challenge ahead of you! I think it’s high time we had a look into your bedroom… er, I mean your virtual bedroom. Your player house. That’s what I mean. Take a picture of that and ignore my awkwardness.
