With friends like these…. [meme taggery]
So my Good Twin Liore, because she enjoys tormenting me, said that she wanted to see what I came up with re: Gnomageddon‘s Sixth Screenshot meme, because I have this thing about screenshots, and that thing is that I take A LOT of them.
The conversation in IRC when she mentioned this to me went like so:
<Aro_> … oh god WHICH SIXTH? How do I sort them? Like sixth ALPHABETICALLY or BY DATE or FILE SIZE or oh god oh god oh god
<Liore-at-work> Yeah, that’s about what I was expecting.
So there are actually a lot of images here, because I went a little crazy.
But I am not one to deny Liore’s schadenfreudic torment, and two images is not enough. Seriously. My screenshot collections are insane. But since I did a WoW-trospective in the last post, I need to break out the big guns, and those guns are the terrifying depths of my SWTOR screenshot gallery.Technically the sixth subfolder in my SWTOR directory is Rari’s, my Operative main on Giradda the Hutt. Playing an Operative healer is like being a tree druid with a rifle and a backstab, and I love it SO MUCH I need new pants. I also love Rari desperately; she falls under the Jason Bourne spectrum of the JB Trinity of Espionage Asskickery and is SO TIRED of the Sith, you guys. SO TIRED. In the giant, 3100-image strong unsorted directory, this is the sixth (by most recent date): Dennast, the arrestingly handsome Commando. Green dudes are hot, yo. Commando healing is pretty interesting because even at level 14 I am almost impossible to kill even without all of Rari’s evasion and stealth tricks, and that is NUTS. Sixth image sorted by oldest date is my ex-Consular Yarriq, who was retired at level 16 because I could not cope with Nolan North’s voice coming out of a character who did not look like a huge douchey dudebro. I like his voice work a lot, it’s just … his vocal style represents a particular archetype, and a distinguished Zabrak Jedi … was not it. Just to keep the theme going, the sixth image in this post is my current favorite (not-spoilery) screenshot. There are a lot of people who criticize TOR’s graphics and insist that it is an ugly game, and I wonder if they’ve maybe just spent too much time on Hutta (which is hideous, likely by design). Everything about this setpiece, from the sunset clouds to the matte with the distant background to the detailing on the capital ship makes me happy in my heart. SO PRETTY.
I know tagging is how memes get around, but I think I’m probably the last person this has come to so — if you have interesting images to share, share them! I LOVE pretty pictures of paper dolls, it’s kind of my weakness.
