Reader John will be your friend if you're a jumper, however. He's mastered one tricky hoppery-doo in Guild Wars 2 and lived to tell the tale. "This is the view from one of the high points in the Hidden Garden. It's a jumping puzzle you reach by killing one of the four keepers in Mount Maelstrom, opening a portal. I always enjoy the landscapes of this game."
I enjoy the landscapes too, John. From ground-level. I wonder what other landscapes we'll be seeing in this week's collection of player-submitted screenshots?
I always thought that this big hand was remarkably tacky, but in a way that told me the Orcs probably thought it was the height of exterior decor. I bet they think that going to T.G.I. Friday's is fancy dining, too.

"This one is from about six to nine months before the combat upgrade hit in Star Wars Galaxies," Brian writes. "Nothing fancy here, just a nostalgic screenshot of grinding out packs of Huurtons in Pre-CU SWG. Many of the older players will be familiar with this scene of a giant pack of mobs being taken down while grinding out a new skill box. This was my first real computer game and played on a computer with terrible internet and 64 megs of on-board video! Ah, how times have changed!"
That's just what the innocent Huurtons needed: for you to upgrade your combat potential. No wonder every mob from this game is permanently extinct.
Well, there was nothing to be done by sulking, she thought. She stood up, stretched, and made a vow that day to repay Carth a hundred times over the misery that he brought upon her. She would not only get back the Ultimate One Shot but make that thief /beg like the little coward she knew him to be. A thin smile crossed her face at the thought...
