One Shots: Welcome to your adorable nightmare


So where do you come down on the subject of Final Fantasy XIV’s Lalafells? There’s no middle ground here; either you’re in love with these pint-sized potatoes or you think that they’re an insidious evil that’s coming for your organs while you sleep.

Let’s check in and see how Vincent rates this race. “Demons. Every last one of them.”


“I suck at screenshots still, but here’s my guardian leaving after a successful Svanir Shaman world boss kill in Guild Wars 2,” said Greaterdivinity. “Mostly, I just like how happy my character looks whenever flying around on the magic broom.”

Lotta seat belts and airbags on flying brooms. Their safety rating must be through the roof. No, wait, that’s “you’ll be going through a roof.”

And who’s ready to leave Oz and return to Kansas? It must be Utakata, who is on a farewell tour in Blade and Soul before finding another home to conquer. “Then close your eyes, and tap your heels together three times.”

Over in World of Warcraft, TexyFX is singing “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” while leaping higher than the highest peaks of Azeroth. Presumably, every descent is accompanied with an appropriate, “WHEEEEEEEEEEE.”

Welcome to MMOs, where you encounter strange and exciting people… and then try to kill them so you can legally claim their stuff. Just hope that your doorway is never graced by Katriana, because you’ll find your corpse looted and your home plundered within minutes.

“Met this dwarf dude again in Neverwinter this week — and killed him.”

You know the drill: Get to screenshottin’, get to postin’, throw up some braggin’, and feel like you’ve done something with your life!

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!
