I was finally able to play some WAR Sunday night. I totally forgot about the Oh, Shiny setting until one of my alliance members mentioned it.
It is quite shiny, really.
Sometimes though, it can be a bit too shiny. Especially in Elf lands, where apparently everything glows, when you get a large group of people together.
We all started looking like a bunch of “vampires” from Twilight. I wish I had thought to take screenshots.
Overall, I like the new setting and it didn’t slow my computer down. It’s a nice touch and adds a good amount of depth to the art.
To be honest though, one of the alliance girls and I just like taking any opportunity to legitimately talk about sparkly, shiny things without causing awkward silences in Vent.
