Aug 1st 2011 3:43PM Anyone else think 'Duran Duran' when they saw the title?
Jun 16th 2011 5:15AM Thrall isn't part of the Horde anymore. He's a neutral character.
QQ for everything and anything aside, this trailer was fantastic. I literally slid my chair back in shock when Ragnaros burst out in front of Thrall. I was not expecting anything that intense whatsoever.
Jun 11th 2011 3:11AM The sheer amount of quality trailer PMVs out there is staggering. Eventually I took, like, the best seven I kept coming back to and just downloaded them and put them on my iPod. I've always really, really liked a good trailer.
From there it was a logical leap to trying my hand at my own. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4nlafKkcoQ
May 19th 2011 4:19PM I was leveling my first Goblin -- on the Lost Isles, I decided to rocket-jump off a tall cliff I found. Was just planning to go WHEEEEEEEEEEE, then SPLAT, then laugh about it over my corpse run.
So I leapt. WHEEEEEEEEE! I soared through the air. Must have gone a few hundred feet forward. As I started to descend, I noticed a naga right around where it looked like I was going to land. I decided to Earth Shock it before I hit the ground. Confuse the hell out of it, you know? A little green guy comes out of the sky, zaps you, and turns into a puddle of goo on the ground, that's gonna bug ya all day. So I zapped him.
But I didn't die. I hit the ground, went down to 1% health, and got the achievement. I stood there, dazed. "What just happened?"
Then the naga smacked me with his trident.
I did indeed have a laugh over the corpse run.

Oct 17th 2010 11:36PM It seems like Rev thinks it can't be a lore event if it's ALSO mind-blowingly cool and would not be out of place in an action movie. The two CAN mix.
Seriously, if the trailer showed Grom shooing Trolls and Blood Elves out of Orgrimmar, you would agree that is lore, right? But it's no less significant an event than Thousand Needles getting utterly flooded, or Auberdine being razed to the ground. These are also events which have long-term ramifications -- they just happen to be particularly flashy, as well.
The Cataclysm itself will be in the history books just as the Troll Wars, the Birth of the Lich King, the War of the Three Hammers are. And we just watched a cinematic detailing it -- one of the single most monumental events in the past five years.
I would agree with you on the zeppelin being tossed into a nearby building. That's not anything except a flashy explosion. Pretty much everything else is an event, something which matters and killed tons of people, or altered the face of the planet forever.
Oct 17th 2010 11:21PM Speaking as someone who has a taste of how hard and difficult a process 3D animation is, holy crap this was a lot. That they animated not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR scenes which featured incredibly-difficult-to-animate WATER to show the destruction was amazing. That couldn't have been easy.
Nov 3rd 2009 3:20AM Eugh, I would have hated it if they were in suits. That ain't WoW. They're being asked about how to make a fictional universe full of orcs and short people fun, not about the education budget for 2010.
Nov 3rd 2009 3:09AM I actually prefer this style of interviewing. Like the interviewer's actually interested in what the interviewee has to say, and not just parroting questions. I find it gets a little boring when there are two people talking, and yet one could just be replaced by a slip of paper.
