Who says you need a cutting-edge rig to play the latest MMOs? Wynchester Black sure doesn't. Here's a pic of his from The Secret World
, one he says proves the game "looks good even on lower graphic settings," and I think you'll agree. As a bonus, he sent us a snippet of some spooky but lovely quest text related to the area:

Move over, sparkle ponies! I'm a big fan of realistic-looking mounts in games, and Lord of the Rings Online
delivers. Reader Carol sent us this screenshot of a Mearas that appeared in Bree-land thanks to the preview deed that accompanied her expansion pre-purchase.
Our last shot of the week is in honor of the Mists of Pandaria
launch date announcement. "Let me introduce HoneyLove, my level 25 Hunter in World of Warcraft
," says contributor Johanis. "She's just arrived in Duskwood and decided to choose a black widow named Charlotte as a new pet. Duskwood can be spooky, but I have a feeling Charlotte will keep her safe. Wish her luck!"
