Apr 6th 2008 3:04PM Apparently, Hell hath no fury than a sin'dorei woman in perpetual slow motion.
I came away from this thinking that it was better than I thought it was going to be (and I remember commenting that it was going to be lame half-baked crap, so there you go). I also came away wondering what this guy could do with something approximating an actual story. Here, there's just not enough, at least not enough to believe that this woman as the elite assassin she turns out to be--even with the "one year later" tag hand-waving the obligatory training scenes away. Give me a reason to believe in your assassin; don't just slap the "revenge" tag on her and expect me to root for her just because she kills stuff in extreme slo-mo.
So in other words, it's a good start; now start storytelling.

Mar 14th 2008 1:43PM Okay. While I agree with you that this video sucks, I think we all agree that you'd be better off not posting about it after that 15th cup of coffee. It makes you come off just as childish or mouth-foaming crazy as the original video.
Mar 11th 2008 12:53PM And I didn't see TB's post when I wrote this one, honest. I just type slow...
Mar 11th 2008 12:51PM After looking at the second Fury trailer, I'd say Assassine is only trying to emulate Seksi's visual style. The two seem to be leagues apart when it comes to story (i.e., we have some idea what Fury is going to be about by looking at the trailers; Assassine, not so much).
And what's with all the Media Ventures-style music popping up in these drama/action machinima these days? I understand that original music is hard to come by, given the nonexistent budgets of these things, but not every machinima needs to sound like a Bruckheimer film.
Mar 7th 2008 4:48AM I just checked it out in WoW Map Viewer, and there's nothing there, sadly.
Oct 26th 2007 10:13AM Somehow, the fact that it's presided over by a character named Barrywhite seems appropriate.
Oct 8th 2007 11:30PM Great! Now when I take the tram to Ironforge, I get to see the Children of the C--er--the gnomish high council all begging me to go save their capital city all over again.
Seriously though, this is a great idea, and should really have happened when Blizzard decided to no longer diminish rep rewards for quests.
Jul 23rd 2007 11:50PM So, let me get this straight, since I tend not to visit the official forums. This instance has been in the works and talked about--as a raid instance--since the expansion's launch, and these people are just *now* getting around to griping that it'll take them more than five minutes to get there?
Jul 20th 2007 9:01PM The character I'm working on currently is a Blood Elf rogue (for public ridi--er, disclosure's sake, Celosia @ Cenarion Circle-US), so I've come to understand the harsh reality of someone inadvertantly swiping my target because I was sleathed and working my way towards my opener. I've gotten to the point that I will wake my non-combat pet if I'm soloing in an area where other players are grinding or questing. Besides, I've discovered that everyone loves Mr. Wiggles. Don't look at me like that, they do...
Anyway, there I was, on one of the islands in Marshlight Lake in Zangarmarsh. I had cleared off one end of the island and was preparing to take on Terrorclaw. I figured that I wanted to bring the fight to me instead of dropping in on TC and aggroing the entire rest of the island. So I figured I would haul out my "trusty" gun and fire (where "trusty" equals a gun skill in the 200s...in Zanga...which means I only use it for ranged pulls. And stats).
So I fire. And I *hit*. And on the left hand side of the screen materializes a Night Elf druid in cat form. She engaged Terrorclaw, but it was too late; my little peashooter has marked him as my kill.
She seemed to have some understandably ugly words for me afterward and sure, I left a little sheepish about it, but only a little, since she got a bitter taste of what I had to deal with in my earliest levels with the character.
