I was particularly drawn to Callie's photo from Dark Age of Camelot circa 2003 this past week: "My fiance and I loved going into the dungeon of Darkness Falls so much that we would frequently go down and fight the Prince, just the two of us, on our Warrior duo. I know newer games have come and gone, but nothing beats dungeon exploring and fighting a difficult boss with the one you love. Still one of my favorite MMO memories."
One can only assume that your characters discovered the lavatory behind the boss room and took many, many pictures as well. Speaking of tawdry screenshots, we've got a few more for you behind the break!
"Bait. That's what it was: bait," he writes. "I'm just strolling through the Super Adventure Box's new worlds, see a bauble on the path and head to it. What do I find? My first arrow trap. In the screenie you can barely make out the arrows still firing, although my corpse is well on its way to rigor mortis. And here I thought that the Ninja Assassins were painful by themselves..."
Anyway, Kirk's bringing us this towering monstrosity today: "I was browsing through old screenshots from my TERA folder and found this pic of my Castanic Priest, Yage, confronting a particularly menacing BAM."
Personally, I hope that the new graphic engine helps the game experience a second renaissance! Can't wait to return, myself.
