One Shots: Sky control to Major Tom


I have to imagine that there’s no more stressful job in a galaxy far, far away than being an air traffic controller for Coruscant. That’s like playing three-dimensional Pac-Man with thousands of users who may not have gotten a full night’s sleep.

Vincent is keeping feet on the ground on this planet, though: “With the content drought in FFXIV in full effect, I dipped my toes back into SWTOR. Smuggler is now level 37, and I feel like I’ve finally found the class, playstyle, and story that might actually make this game stick for me.”

“For once I’m on the popular train!” Greaterdivinity crowed. “Friend got a key for Enshrouded and gifted it to me so I’m seeing what it’s about. So far it seems better than expected in terms of being up my alley. Just barely began, but found a little side path and it got dark FAST as I was going down it. Unsure if that’s just a quirk of the area/for mood or if night/day transitions this quick, but it is a nice little vista of the world I have ahead of me to explore.”

“I’m still stuck in Star Trek Online this week, and still surprised at how good it looks for an ageing game. I just wish you could do more with the camera than spin it around your ship,” said Sleepy.

Beautiful pic!

We’ll end with a couple of humorous screenshots, starting with Minimalistway trying hard not to poke the bear in Final Fantasy XIV: “I wasn’t going to comment on his apron. I think it’s nice.”

And Katriana is taking an unscheduled space walk: “I’ve also been puttering around a bit in Star Trek Online this week for the anniversary. Made a new character and while taking her through the tutorial questline I zoned into one area to discover that she’d decided to dispense with the spaceship and just take on the Borg fighters herself while she took a nice little stroll in space.”

Sorry we missed a week there — vacations and all that! — but hopefully that means you are bursting to the seams with extra screenshots from MMOs. Let’s see ’em in the comments!

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!
