You know what, John? It really will be. Heaven knows it's been kicked around enough in the larger MMO community, but people doing that oh-so-conveniently forget the great times that were had. In a sea of fantasy games, it's still hard to find Witch Hunters battling mutated madmen or suicidal punk Dwarves getting swallowed by a giant squig. Except for here, of course.
So take in that lightning and be kind to those who will go through the grieving process this month when WAR is shuttered. Do it for me, will ya? The Gipper. And as you're doing that, also check out our other player screenshots from this past week!
But don't let that discourage you from checking out this awesome pic sent by my good friend Roger. I don't know Roger, but I'm just assuming we'd be good friends. He sets the scene: "I was running around in Antonica in EverQuest II and had jumped up to the top of the mountain range and happened to look at Qeynos to see the dragon attack and thought it would make a great screenshot. Hope you guys like it."
"Here is a shot from RIFT with the odd angle, which you requested of readers," he wrote. "The rather angry-looking monster is the result of drinking a holiday vial from the Halloween celebration."
Uncanny. It's like looking into a mirror.
"So, I just started Final Fantasy XIV, and while I was running around La Noscea doing my newbie quests and such when I saw a glowing blue tower in the distance."
No way! That's so groovy!
"Seems perfectly harmless, right?"
Word, JMadFour. Word.
"Attached is a screenshot of my level 8-ish Marauder, looking at the tower."
I couldn't be more proud of you than if you were my very own Marauder offspring.
