Reader John sent in this inspiring screenshot of a new friend he made in Star Wars: The Old Republic: "While Alderaan may be long and perhaps arduous as a planet, it has some absolutely gorgeous sights, and flying on the strange manta-ray beasts that carry you from base to base can be a wonderful experience."
What other wonderful experiences exist after the jump? If you scroll past this post without clicking, you'll be driven mad with always wondering.
"I was doing the Winter's Day jumping puzzle inside the snow globe," Jaxom explains, "when I spotted a minipet in a funny place. Can you find it? Hint: It's in the pile of snow balls closest to the foreground. Cute to boot!"
Reader Brad stopped being freaked out long enough to capture this nightmare scene: "I took some time to enjoy the new storyline mission in The Secret World to find Tyler Freeborn. It was quite enjoyable and creepy, plus you get to learn a bit more about what's happening in with the filth and the fog. Mirinesse took a moment here to sit and relax and absorb the creepiness of the area. /me shivers."
"This planet photo was taken deep in low-sec Syndicate space from my pod," she says. "This one almost got me killed so many times."
In space, no one can hear you scream unless you have Vent open. Then they'll just mute ya.
