Reader Jeremy submitted this haunting picture that works on a couple of different levels in light of the recent announcement. "Kids," he warns, "this is a warning of the harmful effects of No-No Powder. One day, you're sitting in your pleasant home street, admiring the view. Next, you're waking up naked in a tundra with nothing but your quickly diminishing dignity."
Let's go on a cold, naked adventure together through the rest of this week's player-submitted pictures!
"Hey guys, here's my character from DCUO," Michael writes. "This game has so many different evil clown costumes and styles, but this is one of my favorite. Enjoy!"
William sets the scene: "After my warband and I successfully fended off the Mad King, trapping him in his realm, I walked back into Lion's Arch and beheld this sight. The corrupted moon loomed even nearer than before, as if watching over the Mad King's ultimate failure in our land. It remains ever-smiling though, almost as if to say that more awaits us. What that is, I cannot say, but plastic spiders and glow-in-the-dark skeletons are the playthings of humans, not Charr! The Mad King was but a baby Moa compared to this atrocity, and I will travel to the ends of Tyria to remove this plight once and for all!"
Whoa nelly, there, William! The Mad King just wants to have a good time, y'know?
