One Shots: Beautiful balloon


Massively logically selects for readers who aren't necessarily playing World of Warcraft -- if you were, you'd probably be reading our sister site WoW Insider, not this column. But I am still a WoW fan, as is this week's One Shots submitter, William. He sent in a freshly snapped pic from Mists of Pandaria with this note:
This screenshot is a little bit of a spoiler, so I won't actually say much about what's in it, but needless to say, this is one of my favourite scenes from the Pandaren starting area. The art design is fantastic in Blizzard's new expansion!
Also, panda in a balloon! William's color image is tucked after the break along with a few more of your One Shots-worthy images.

Staff-favorite browser MMO Glitch features a world-class camera tool, no doubt inspired by its founder's other famous project. In fact, the game has just kicked off a contest that will reward players with cash-shop credit for their images. Alas, Massively is awarding submitter soundersfc.tid only five seconds of fame for this pic. "I decided to add some atmospherics for the upcoming Halloween festivities," he wrote us.

Massively reader Will swears this is a shot of Guild Wars 2, not Skyrim. "I just love the snow in this game," he says. "The detail and the sound are amazing. If you listen carefully, you can hear the trees cracking from the cold. I'm from the north and now live in Texas, so I don't get to see or hear this in real life anymore."

"Who doesn't love a good late-night gaming marathon?" asks this week's final contributor, Joshua. He sent us this pic of TERA's Lake of Tears, which he encountered after a long session with a pick-up group fending off BAMs (big-ass monsters, of course).

MechWarrior Online's NDA dropped last week; I'm thinking it's ripe for One Shotting. Who's with me?

Want to be featured in a future edition of One Shots? Send your favorite MMO screenshots to, and don't forget to include your name, the name of the game, and a description of the scene. Large, colorful, UI-free shots that tell a story and really show off the game make for the best images. Look ma, we brought back One Shots!
