One Shots: Music lovers are everywhere

MMO gamers tend to be split on pop-culture references. Some people really enjoy finding little nods here and there to things they enjoy. Others seriously dislike it due to the fact that it can break immersion. Today's contributor Jordan T. is definitely the former of the two, as he was amused to...

One Shots: So intense

If there's one thing we geeks know and love, it's pop culture viral internet memes. From jokes about lolcats to autotuned news and Sesame Street doing Old Spice, we geeks love all manner of silliness. And while I'm also likely to try to inject that into One Shots, every so often someone does it for...

The Daily Grind: What's your favorite MMO Easter egg?

Easter eggs have always struck me as weird. On one hand, the bunny keeps hiding them, so I guess he doesn't want you to find them. But then he makes them brilliantly colored, which blends in with nature not at all. So which is it, Easter bunny? Do you want us to find your eggs or not? In a...

They feel it all around, and feel it in their bones -- their lives are on the line when they're away from home. Of course, that's all one can really expect when living in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, fraught with danger and crazed, mutated beings. Today's great screenshot from inside the lands of...

The Daily Grind: Your favorite MMO pop culture reference?

It seems like no matter which way you turn in many MMOs, you'll eventually find a pop-culture reference nestled in there somewhere. While World of Warcraft may be perhaps the most blunt about using them with quests named after things as varied as a Peter Murphy song and a Kevin Smith movie, we...

One Shots: You gots ta pay da toll

One of the myriad lines that sticks with me after seeing Robin Hood: Men in Tights about a bazillion times is the line "Sorry, but a toll is a toll, and a roll is a roll, and if we don't get no tolls, then we don't eat no rolls." So when this Warhammer Online screenshot rolled into the One Shots...

One Shots: The truth is out there

People just love those pop-culture references in World of Warcraft! We've seen a bunch of them come in since we opened, but this is probably one of my favorites from Wrath. The above NPC is Agent Skully (obvious reference to the X-Files) sent in to us by Johanis. He added the following tale about...

One Shots: We will drink your essence, Gelfling

Okay, so maybe we're the only ones who saw this and thought "Skeksis!" But we wouldn't be surprised if he were to demand the essence of fallen enemies to drink. Today's Warhammer Online screenshot comes in to us from Daegallus of the guild Manus Mutati from the Red Eye Mountain server. He writes...

One Shots: I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

If your head explodes with dark forbodings too -- well that's just Chaos. Or more properly, it's an easter egg area found by adventurous Chaos players who fully explore Warhammer Online's Inevitable City. Today's dark screenshot comes to us from Vayn of the guild Tzeentch Hates Standoffs on the...
