One Shots: Songs for a sinking ship


Maybe it’s just me, but whenever I see a screenshot with a Dutch angle, I naturally assume that either a ship or the entire world has started to sink and there are mere minutes left before all is lost. And if that’s the case, you best spend those final moments cranking out an amazing tune on whatever instrument is most handy!

Vincent has the right idea in Final Fantasy XIV: “Sing me a song of a lass that is gone…”

Speaking of MMORPGs that have sunk into the inky black depths, Utakata delivered a jaunty farewell to the late, crazy TERA. Rest in peace, all you big booty monsters. May you dream of stomping the little fluffy-eared heroes.

Minimalistway went on an odd expedition: “Going into the isometric world of Habbo Hotel, this is not a game, it’s a chat environment with games. I still need to explore it more.”

Even as both of its versions are in maintenance mode, The Secret World lured in the faithful with the siren song of its anniversary. Tyler got together with some friends to strut down the road with a golden golem. “Our album drops next month,” he said.

And yours truly jumped into Fallout 76 to do some of the Mothman Equinox events with the hopes of meeting the big guy. Good news! We’re now besties, Mothman and I, and in the talks to become a crime-fighting duo for the ages.

Shift gears from “passive reading” to “active posting,” and let’s see screenshots and stories of your adventures in MMOs as of late! Post away in the comments, and remember that anyone who is first gets an extra cookie from Mothman’s bakery (it’s his side gig).

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 with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!
