Murf’s Screenshot Safari has ended, and there were a few things I took note of from the post. First of all, wow, what a great turnout for a great event. The Safari was the heart and soul of this year’s NBI and it shows. Kudos Murf, for a great idea done right. Murf also encouraged us to make more screenshot posts, and to recap our own entries from the event. This is a combination of all that.
My entries into the Safari:
- Landscapes (H1Z1 + Bonus)
- Going For Gold (Titanfall)
- Selfie of the Dead (H1Z1)
If you haven’t noticed a theme yet, it’s H1Z1. Yeah, I think the game is rather pretty, and was almost the only submission from the game, so I rolled with it. Plus, it’s the only MMO like game I’m really playing outside of toying with others.
Here’s another H1Z1 shot I took the other day while I was recording. I was playing the Battle Royale mode, and it’s a blast! I think they’ve made some improvements to the lighting systems, because the way the sun actually darkens your perception of objects around you feels very realistic. You’ll see what I mean more when I get around to posting a video I’m working on. That’s also why it’s been quiet around here as of late. I’ve been testing out streaming programs and websites, along with doing some recording and video editing. I have stuff in the works, I promise!
I didn’t do a third entry into the #NBI2015Safari last week, and really hadn’t planned on doing another one but as Murf is now collating lists of the entries for the month, I started thinking I should do another. Murf expressed some surprise when I used a shot from H1Z1 for the Landscapes category, and to this point it seems I’m the only one who has made an H1Z1 submission. As such, I found another suitable screenshot from the game that can land in a different category: the Selfie.
Unlike WoW, there isn’t a selfie feature in the game, and technically this isn’t my avatar. But with my clever play on words in the title of this post, this is now a selfie of Mr. Zombie there. Isn’t he cute?
Oh, you got some red on you!

For my second entry into the #NBI2015Safari aka Murf’s Screenshot Safari, I am going with the “Epic Achievement” category.
I’ve been playing Titanfall for, oh I don’t know, a little over a month now? At some point (I think it was upon reaching level 30) I was prompted to optionally turn on my “ranked chip” which is a fancy way of saying my kills/deaths/points will attribute to something else aside from merely leveling my account. It doesn’t seem as big of a deal as ranked play can be in other games; there doesn’t seem to be a leaderboard so it’s hard to tell where you stack up against other players. It should also be noted that each ranked “season” is only a month long, so it’s not as if this ranking will go down in the annals of time for all to see. No, at the end of the month things will reset and this achievement will cease to be, outside of that link above that says “season history.” Still, it is a recent accomplishment that I’m proud of, and I’m not stopping, no. I might be able to get even higher before the month is out, and I’ll let you know if I do.
If you play Titanfall on the PC, my Origin account is Built4Sin82. Hit me up if you want to get a game in!
