Our next image, from Andrew, shows off what you can accomplish with DC Universe Online's
impressive character customization. "This is a shot one of my hero characters, Highwire, doing his best impression of an evil supervillain," he says. Looks more like a certain vigilante to me!
This Star Wars: The Old Republic
screenshot popped out at me because of its lovely, watercolory depth. It hardly looks like a game at all. Reader Cimeas tells us it was taken on Quesh, his favorite planet in the game. Why? "This vista, with its harsh, orange sunset at the edge of a blackened sky, reminds me why I find the world so appealing."
Rounding out this week's submitters is Siby, who says he snapped this pic while he was doing missions in Egypt in The Secret World
. "I know Guild Wars 2
is the wonder child of the MMO world at the moment," he writes, "and I have a copy to play myself. But people need to support TSW
if they want to see different types of games in the genre."
We're always looking for screenshots, especially those from obscure games or new releases. Why not send us some ancient pics from games long gone
or games soon to sunset
Want to be featured in a future edition of One Shots? Send your favorite MMO screenshots to firstname.lastname@example.org, and don't forget to include your name, the name of the game, and a description of the scene. Large, colorful, UI-free shots that tell a story and really show off the game make for the best images. Look ma, we brought back One Shots!
