One Shots: The weather never cooperates with photography


Do you ever experience that frustrating feeling of knowing that your game is all sorts of beautiful — yet it never cooperates when you try to get take a screenshot as proof? Then you’ll commiserate well with Minimalistway today.

“In FFXIV’s Sharlayan, the weather was sunny and beautiful. Yet the moment I wanted to take a screenshot, the fog covered everything.”

The fog’s the real end boss to every game. Just ask John Carpenter.

“Been around revisiting Bless Unleashed these days,” Lethia wrote. “Just a hit of nostalgia and I’m enjoying my time grinding through the story and doing every side stuff I see. I think it’s quite entertaining, but i feel it never took out much as a game but i appreciate it at the moment for what it is.”

Hey, who’s ready to be smacked around by claws, pyrotechnics, ice blasts, and fists witht he force of six hulks? These poor schmoes, that’s who.

“Another happy day for a Powerhouse training dummy in Champions Online,” said Hirku Two.

And speaking of superhero MMOs, Utakata is exploring what looks like a hallway from Star Wars in City of Heroes. It’s the future sound of London, I guess!

And Hikari is sending out 2021 with an epic dance party on Risa: “2021 wrapped up the Year of the Klingon in Star Trek Online and also marked the debut of gear for the Lower Decks, the essential workers of the 25th century.”
