One Shots: Day one of the conquest


There’s nothing like that heady feel of stepping out into the game world for the first time, taking in the sights of the newbie zone, and thinking, “I’m going to subjugate all of this with my mighty whacking stick until it serves me as the supreme emperor of all!”

What, it’s just me? Nevermind then.

I’m sure Minimalistway has much better intentions at this fresh start: “This is from Aion Classic. It’s a beautiful starting zone and great music, a nice game to walk around and take screenshots.”

What was that pink blur that shot across the road? Oh, it’s just Utakata on the highway to hell in Tower of Fantasy! That motorcycle is powered by brimstone, marshmallow fluff, and sheer spunky attitude.


Let’s all welcome Power_Reaper_5000 (one better than Power_Reaper_4999, who was looking a little creaky as last year’s model) and this look at a low-key Guild Wars 2 character.

“I changed my main to an Engineer Scrapper named Bob (the Incinerator),” said PR5K.

“At least someone looks happy to be here,” Vincent said.

And it’s true. We are all happy to be here to witness these glorious Final Fantasy XIV pecs. Make them dance, dance, dance for us!

To take us home is IronSalamander8: “I think Garden Warfare 2 is a virtually limitless resource for attractive and at least slightly silly screen shots. Here is the view of the Zomboss Academy courtyard capture point from my mob cob (kernel corn variant). Note that he’s sporting the neopolitan ice cream legendary hat (it spits cherries when you get vanquishes), but not sure where that bucket is from.”

You’ve seen the sights. You’ve bathed in the colors. Now it’s your turn to flip-turn us upside-down with your stellar screenshots! We’ll see you all in the comments!
