Reader Chiara came across our first screenshot of the week here in Elder Scrolls Online, and it brought out strong emotions: "I don't really know what this man's story is -- but I can't help but wonder about it since I've first seen him. Did he die there? Did someone arrange his skeleton? I've no idea, but the scene just struck me as incredibly sad."
Maybe he was keeping a vigil for a loved one. Maybe that vigil is not yet over. Who knows?
There's just nothing scarier than grown men and women playing virtual dollhouse and paying money for the privilege. Although, to be fair, it's not that much different from your 50-year-old uncle who builds elaborate model train landscapes in his basement. Sometimes we just want a little slice of the world to fully control.
"I'm enjoying ArcheAge," JohnD wrote. "The joy of finally having a donkey!"
"This pic of from the first day my wife and I entered Aion," reader Justin submitted. "She really thought this emote was cute and demanded I take a pic at once."
