One Shots: Fantasy splash pad


I’m oddly fascinated with water effects and physics (what little there is) in MMOs, especially when games try to portray large lakes or oceans. So often it feels very fakey when you really examine it, but some games — like Elder Scrolls Online — get passing grades in this area.

Water’s probably not what Lethia is contemplating here but rather the choice of traveling companion: “I wanna present you the most monstrous of monsters, my pet that basically ruins every good picture with his distorted figure.”

Every family has a member like that when it comes to photo shoots, right?

Meanwhile, a chunk of the One Shots crew was hanging out in Secret World Legends’ Agartha, perhaps playing baseball or practicing to become a gangster.

“Where is the pinata?” Minimalistway says. “Years after not playing SWL, I’m back and I feel rusty. I wish there is a way to restart the whole story, as I forgot how to play the game. I think it’s better to start a new character then go back to my main when I catch up with the story.”

But when there’s one bee with a bat, you always know… there will be many, many more.

“The Beehemoth with the powers of transformation, transfiguration, and dispensing candy to all the little girls, boys, and enbies of Secret World Legends,” Hikari posted.

Vincent continues to have a lot of fun with filters and Final Fantasy XIV pictures. Would we all look so majestic… so angelic… so powerful on our way to finding the nearest litter box. Kitty really, really has to go potty.

Don’t cry for Utakata, because this seemingly innocent and pitiable Blade and Soul character is harboring… “the monster within!” It’s probably just going to unleash a craving for Taco Bell chalupas or something, but there’s an off-chance it’ll take your head off.
