@ TB Too Long Didn't Read.I rarely if ever watch Machinima. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. i enjoyed EFO. Sure I would have liked to see more. But the fact that it's even out at all is what I'm pleased with.They did do some jumps that I wish they wouldn't have. Or done some stuff that isn't possible in WoW (WTB Flight form in Ironforge) But if they did that then there wouldn't be the giant robots, OR the danish.I have to agree with Velaegis. Out of a 12 paragraph post you did 1 1/2 paragraphs on EFO, I skipped the stuff about myndflame and just read your EFO 'review'. I don't care if they didn't some 'questionable' stuff. I ENJOY there movies. It's all I care about.

I'm not honestly concerned if people don't have the necessary attention span to read what I have to say about the whole thing, and can't see that the context of EFO's development and history is rather important in judging it. Those who don't listen to much music, may believe that Britney Spears as a fantastic artist. Does that make her a fantastic artist? I somebody released a movie with a few fancy effects and 'borrowed' jokes, and didn't tie up any of the plot-elements, simply sliding clumsily from one unrelated scene to the next, would you praise it? That's what this movie is, just because it's a machinima doesn't mean you can be merciful to it and treat it as if it didn't know any better and needs to be petted and positively reinforced like some errant child. I'd challenge anyone in this thread, to name some meaningful things that IDEFO did better than either Super Snacks or Zinwrath. I'd also like you to watch the movie again, and count the number of plot-threads that end in no resolution what so ever. There's a lot of them, so it could take you a while.I'll admit to getting a few laughs out of it, and I have to admire some of the production work, but that's not what a review is about, it's about pointing out what it does right, and what it does wrong. Whether you personally like it, really has nothing to do with it at all.
