Sometimes it's not about where you go or what you encounter; it's about what you own. Reader and captain Zyrusticae took untold pleasure from looking at his acquisition in EVE Online
: "This is just from me taking shots of my favorite mission ship, the Kronos. It's quite a beautiful ship, and the lighting in the revised hangar does a great job of accentuating its lovely curves."
If you change just a couple of those words, Zyrusticae, you could make a fortune in the Valentine's Day card industry. Don't you all agree?
Reader Tony has a hilarious perspective shot that mind remind you of a certain cartoon dog. No, not Heathcliff. Not Snoopy. The other
dog. No, not Garfield; that's not even a dog. You know what? Stop guessing. Yeah.
"Heya, my in-game name is Poika Pureda and I took this little shot without really knowing it. It seems my Guild Wars 2
Ranger's bloodhound was shocked to his very core about something. Either that or he wants some Scooby Snacks."
Speaking of good-looking games, TERA's
one of those titles that keeps getting a lot of attention in this column due to its jazzy visuals. Hey, when you look this good, you might as well flaunt it, right?
"Since this MMO's transition to F2P, I haven't been able to put it down," reader Justin writes, "and I just had to capture this moment as we were waiting for a boss to spawn in a mid-game dungeon. It's a beautiful game with great atmosphere and because of that even the most simplistic of architecture can evoke a sense of awe in me. Or maybe it's because said architecture is floating thousands of miles above ground."
With the Ultimate One Shot in her 54-slot backpack, Desiree dashed out of the canyon as if hell were hot on her heels. Well, hellhound
, but it still was terrifying, on fire, and quite slobbery. Hearing the growls from behind her, she tried to push the fear away.
"Fear is the mind-killer," she muttered. "Fear is the... ooh! Rare ore node!" She skidded to a halt and took out her pickaxe. "It's worth a corpse run."
