One Shots: Granny Freedom


It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a super-powered senior citizen with slight incontinence and a grappling hook!

Well, there's something you don't see every day.

Reader Dynatos brings this gripping image from Champions Online to our attention: "A superhero that has come back out of retirement, Granny Freedom grapples across Millennium City's skies on the lookout for both evil-doers and heroes who need a little help with their moral compass!"

She's also never late for Denny's early bird specials. So what other visual treats do we have in store for you whippersnappers this week? Oh, wouldn't you like to know!

Frequent submitter JohnD is ready to party it up with the Irish in a fantasy world where the Irish don't exist. Wait, how does that work?

"Here is Kamren, my level 36 Shadowknight in EverQuest II, enjoying some Brewday festivities -- otherwise known as St. Patricks Day! Drink up!" he sent in.

Massively wants to remind you all to virtually drink responsibly.

Here's a screenshot that also doubles as a game. Can you find the stealthy ninja hidden inside of it?

"Here is my camouflage outfit in Lord of the Rings Online," reader Chiara submitted. "I came up with it for a kinship hide-and-seek event."

I found her! Drat, no, that's just another leaf. Why are you so good?

Finally -- drumroll please -- it's our Guild Wars 2 picked pic of the week! This one is courtesy of reader Sandra.

"This is my mesmer Yvaine De Winter, enjoying a nice view of the upper city of Divinity's Reach," she wrote. "This game might already be one-and-a-half years old, but this plant-lined display of stars, sun, planets, and moons, honeycombed with sunrays, never ceased to amaze and fascinate me."

Ready for another awesome screenshot challenge? This week I want you to visit your favorite beginner zone that means a lot to you, screenshot the heck out of it, and send your shots in along with your strongest memories of that area.
