One Shots: Postcards from the galactic rim


While most of you toil and adventure away in the gravity well of a single planet, some daring MMOstronauts (is that a term? It is now!) blast off into deep space to see what else lies out there. Spoiler: It’s a gigantic ship-eating squid named Percy.

Minimalistway is the captain on deck at this moment: “I’m having a new adventure in a new game. So far I’m confused by EVE Online, but I’m having fun.”

Next up may well be a game debut for this column, bringing us into a long-running (yet often-rebooting) horror MMO.

Requiem: Desiderium Mortis is set in a dark, nightmarish world,” says Sixuality, “a world of bleak landscapes, hideous monsters and… teddy bears?”

“May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out,” Vincent posted. “This was crafted, in part, with a gossamer fae wing that was liberated from its owner in the Dancing Plague.”

“Well, I was gonna show you my motorcycle on the moon, but I decided to take my brand new Hippo Cart there instead! Hippo Power!”

Finally, Hurbster dug up some old World of Warcraft screenshots and shared this picture of a pretty — but probably mosquito-infested — swamp from the good ol’ days.
