One Shots: What am I looking at here?


Sometimes a screenshot ends up in my lap that I stare at for a long time and still have no idea what’s going on in it. Then again, I failed modern art in college, so my brain might not be wired to understand abstract beauty. This is all to say that while I don’t quite get today’s headlining pic, it sure is something. A lot of something.

“In Guild Wars 2, my character had a little chat with Aurene this week before heading off to investigate the disappearance of the Wizard Tower in Kessex Hills, which eventually led to getting transported off to the starting zone for Secrets of the Obscure,” posted Katriana.

Nothing to see here, just a cat exploring an asteroid in space. A felinaut! I mean, you never know in World of Warcraft. That place is zany, yo.

Lucky Jinx provides the context: “Meeting the Void Elves on my feral Druid. It was a short, but quite enjoyable little adventure.”

And speaking of WoW, Minimalistway was impressed with this panda scene, saying, “No matter how much I think I know the game, there is always something I’ve never seen before. Even simple scene like this is delightful to discover.”

“I got my SWTOR character to level cap and made it the new zone in Ord Mantell,” said Vincent. “While not the largest zone per se, the attention to detail in that place–specifically the ‘town’ area, is off the chain (IMHO). I was quite impressed.”

I want to know the story of the workers who got assigned the arduous task of installing massive decorative bits of technology alongside an outdoors staircase.

And finally, I’ll share this picture from an alleyway in Lord of the Rings Online’s Umbar. It’s such an incredible warren of a city that has a design flavor all its own.
