Put mildly, orange is not exactly my favourite colour. Once upon a time, when the internet was young, I even initiated the "Orange club", a website dedicated to loathing oranges and everything that shared the same colour. Every once in a while an orange lover would accidentally join and be hugely disappointed.
So you can see that I truly love you guys, because I decided to endure the pain and stomach finding six suitable pictures for this month's issue of 6 on 6 gamer style!
Six times orange
SWTOR: Despite my detest for said colour, I cannot deny that Voss is one of the prettiest-looking planets out there. This picture was taken as part of my SWTOR aerial photography project.
2) Kayleen Hawkins
Guild Wars 2: Conrad's main character in Guild Wars 2, elementalist Kayleen Hawkins, is pretty crazy about a certain colour, as you can see in the picture. I must (grudgingly) admit that it looks good on her and I consider the above screenie to be among the best character shots I made in the game.
3) Major Hailey
SWTOR: Another one of CONRAD's characters (noticing a trend here?) with a love for orange. Major Hailey is doing some ground training on Ord Mantell and I'm pretending to be a visiting war journalist taking pictures. I love the Republic vanilla armour for trooper characters and would totally wear this one if it wasn't so... orange.
4) Seed protagonist
Botanicula: It's been a while since I completed the game, but Botanicula still ranks among my favourite games ever. Yes, even though its protagonist is an orange seed!
5) Ravenwyn's New Year's outfit
LOTRO: Behold, my only character with an orange outfit. The chest piece is one of those easily-overlooked random world drops, which I tend to collect for creating unique-looking outfits. Then the pants and the awesome fireworks horse fitted perfectly (there's fireworks randomly detonating from it's saddle, how cool is that!) and I could no longer ignore the signs - an outfit was born.
SWTOR: Ashara, the inquisitor's companion, is one of my favourite companions in Star Wars: the Old Republic. What can I say, I'm a sucker for cute companions! I do feel there's a lot of missed potential in her character, though, because there's not much progression. Ashara more or less keeps being the same, regardless of how the player's character acts. I enjoy the character development of Jaesa Williams, the sith warrior companion, a lot more in that regard. Ashara is also notoriously hard to gain affection with for female player characters (and guess what gender all my characters are...). Needless to say, in my opinion Ashara needs a bit more love!
