One Shots: Zen and the art of motorcycle flying


As we all well know, motorcycles are among the safest forms of transportation ever devised. This is especially true if you careen off-road without a helmet. But only one thing could increase the safety rating: the ability to fly. Fortunately, the ultra-responsible Final Fantasy XIV is all over that.

“I’m a little slower than some, but by the gods, I have managed to save up enough Seafarer’s Cowpies to purchase the latest hotness… the new motorcycle in FFXIV,” reported Scott. Next up? Let’s take that motorcycle into space and zip across the sun!

“While waiting for the boss event in Guild Wars 2, someone arrived riding a plushie raptor,” said Minimalistway. “Now this is FOMO! I want it… but I have my own 8-bit raptor and I will not change it.”

Meanwhile, Vincent is bringing over some of that Middle-earth spirit by creating a “Lady of the Golden Wood” in Eorzea. Sure, she looks good with makeup on, but if you saw her vegging out on the couch in pajama pants, you’d see that she’s just like any of us.

And Hurbster is being very dignified in FFXIV: “Here we are, back where I was on my White Mage before my op, now much happier as a Paladin. And a quick go at /gpose as well.”

Provide your own voice caption for this shot. In my mind, he’s shouting, “Hi-keeba!”

And finally, Bree takes us to lands much less traveled: “I wanted to love Book of Travels so much. Even just looking at screenshots of this game does something to my heart; the art style just evokes an incredibly sense of longing for the game I wish this one were.”
