Honest about the fact that I haven’t paid as much attention to posting screenshots on this blog as I should have. But I hate to break promises, even if no one really cares. So I’m going to cram 28 screenshots in here before the end of the month. To do so, they’re just going to be fairly random with no explanations or cute stories and unfortunately, I don’t even have time to make them pretty because I’m totally going out of town in the morning. But hopefully you’ll enjoy them anyways.
There are a lot of gorgeous cut scenes in this game and I take a whole lot of screenshots of them. As I was looking through my folders working on pulling out images for IntPiPoMo, it amused me greatly to notice some of my shots looked very similar. My main toon, Jedi Master Kristalys Greyson, loves using the force.
IntPiPoMo is an alternative to NaNoWriMo for people who want to challenge themselves but do not have the time, inspiration, desire, whatever, to write a novel. People who participate have a goal of posting 50 screenshots during the month of November. It began last year and I had a lot of fun contributing on my WoW blog and seeing the screenshots posted by the other bloggers who participated. I am gladly doing it again this year over on Elfi’s World with the additional challenge of making myself post every day of the month. But I still play SWTOR and it’s a beautiful game, so it totally deserves to get some screenshot love. I won’t be attempting to post daily here (I’m getting a late start as it is) but I will make sure to get 50 screenshots in here for the month.
We’ll start with some screenshots from the newest Operation in the game, Terror From Beyond. My guild has been farming this in story mode for weeks now so we can gear up some of our alts and new recruits. Everything in SWTOR is pretty. Everything. So I don’t really have anything special to say about these screenshots. It’s not like “this is the prettiest raid” or “this boss is the coolest” because the entire game is full of awesome. Aesthetically speaking, of course. That being said, I do love bright colors so the 3rd boss fight, Operator IX, is one of my all time faves. I call him the “disco boss”. All of the colors, they please me. Even if you’re not familiar with TFB, you should have no problem figuring out which screenshot below is the disco boss.
I do apologize that some of these screenshots show my UI and my guildies. When you’re in a serious business raid you really don’t have the option of saying “everyone stand back and give me 2 minutes to take some screenshots” every 5 minutes. You work with what you get.
