Reader Chiara gets props for coming through on a lot of my wacky weekly screenshot challenges, including one recently to send in a shot of her worst in-game costume. This is what she came up with.
"After getting spammed with creepy rabbit festival masks by a secret NPC admirer in Lord of the Rings Online
, one of my characters became an Awesome Bunny Superhero," Chiara writes. "I swear she just acted on her own; I had no say in it. Thankfully she-it retired."
Anyone here a fan of Napoleon Dynamite? That was the movie that was cool to like for a while, then cool to hate, then... I guess most everyone forgot about it. Everyone except the makers of RIFT
, who threw in this funny little homage.
Reader Kim was on the scene for this one: "Running around in-game, I found two brothers in a battle to the death. Don't they know they are supposed to break the wrist and walk away?"
Never having been an EverQuest
player, I find that being a virtual tourist to the Olden Days is an enjoyable way of getting to know the game. Reader Ben continues his streak of sending in interesting moments in the game with this particular hang-out.
"Here's a goblin tavern within a goblin dungeon," Ben writes. "Unfortunately, I can't remember which one anymore!"
The Napoleon Dynamite picture inspired me for this week's screenshot challenge. I want you all to take pictures of your favorite (or groan-worthy) pop culture reference in your MMO. C'mon, you can think of at least one or two!
