First up is reader Duncan, who wins the internet (for a minute at least) with this picture: "Hey Massively! Here is a snapshot of my Chua character BuzzCracker in WildStar taking time off from his adventures on Nexus to get down and funky on the dance floor at 'Wild William's Tiki Bar' in the tree tops of Wilderrun. Don't ask me why the Mechari and the two Loppi are dancing with no clothes behind Buzz; it must be something in the drinks being served by old Bill at the bar. Next stop for BuzzCracker is a spring break beach party ongoing in Malgrave!"
Really, this should go to show that the world is primed and ready for an all-dancing MMO. Let's shake our groove thang with the rest of this week's entries! Lord of the Rings Online has fairly conservative dance emotes compared to other games, but even these can be put to good use in the right situations. Reader Chaira is tap dancing across a pond in this one: "The emote itself (dance_elf2) is nothing remarkable, but it's fun to use near a body of water."
Let's not kid ourselves; Elves are nothing remarkable. But we'll permit one for the sake of a pretty screenshot!
"So here's a shot I managed to snag of my ultra-fab Pinkest Aurin Ever, Dashwind, dancing happily in the grass just seconds before a member of the Darkspur Cartel decided to show his disapproval with a big sword. Everybody's a critic," Chris moaned.
"Some friends and I guested over to Tarnished Coast to have a little fun," Salt wrote. "I'm already missing my town clothes."
