It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like This Raid Isn't Going to Happen is the newest release in Oxhorn's shorts series. It's obviously based off the song of the same name, from Oxhorn's Christmas for Geeks album. At the time that collection was released, I was curious whether any of the new music would make it to video form. I'm pretty glad this song was the one to make the cut.
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like This Raid Isn't Going To Happen features a lot of the pitfalls, troubles, and failures that can keep a raid from getting started. Whether you're accustomed to PUGging your raids or simply going with your own guild, there's probably at least a few of these anecdotes that will be familiar to you. I admit that the surprise-pulling-rogue bit made me laugh and weep at the same time.
I especially liked that Oxhorn used in-game footage in this video. It's been a while since we've seen much of that from him, so it's a nice reminded that Oxhorn truly is firmly rooted in the community we all love.
