WoW Moviewatch: Hearthstone: The Ultimate Expansion

You haven't lived until you've seen the most recent threat to Azeroth: a Pandaren Lich King. The newest machinima from AFK Players portrays the final experience in our beloved game: Hearthstone: The Ultimate Expansion. Make sure you stay through the credits to hear the very special music mix.

It's hard to compare to AFK Players. They consistently knock it out of the park in terms of content, humor, and sheer animation. And now that they've tackled Hearthstone for real, I feel like we can all relax and build our new decks together.

WoW Moviewatch: Just Another Morning

I don't envy the BlizzCon movie judges. Faced with the array of videos submitted this year, choosing between them must have been incredibly difficult. Just Another Morning by AFK Players puts Garrosh in a whole new light, one that none of us could have expected. This was truly an outstanding video. While it may not have won, I can confidently say this is one of the best machinima I have ever seen. Take the time watch it. This is simply brilliant stuff.

WoW Moviewatch: Quest Busters Episode 2 - Those Bears Up There

AFK Players have returned with a sequel to Quest Busters. It's hard to find the words to properly describe Quest Busters Episode 2 - Those Bears Up There. With mindblowingly good animation, astounding flow, and a hilariously engaging script, this machinima will easily be one of the best WoW videos of the year.

Don't let yourself miss out on the astounding appearance of Thor Ultralisk of Void Ray EX. It is one and a half minutes of pure joy, all wrapped up in a clever parody song. Of course, Thor Ultralisk isn't the only in-joke in the video, but you can spot plenty of your own.

Thanks to the AFK Players for an unbelievably good video. Here's hoping you find a tree of your own, one day in the near future.

WoW Moviewatch: Anton Pourqoi No Rerolls: Pandaria, ep. 3

Well, this is it. AFK Players have released the third episode of Anton Pourqoi No Rerolls: Pandaria. In a word, it's absolutely amazing. Including mind-blowing animation, pop culture references, and a wicked sense of humor, the Anton Pourqoi series might be the finest machinima we've seen in 2012.

I'm really sad to see the series end. Hopefully, the AFK Players will stay around for a while longer and we'll get the chance to see more panda shenanigans. I think the Street Fighter bit was my favorite, though the Bruce Lee references totally win.

WoW Moviewatch: Anton Pourquoi - No Rerolls

With the Mists of Pandaria rolling into town within weeks, the machinima scene is finally picking up its own steam again. Few new releases are as exciting as the newest video from AFK Players.

Anton Pourqoi - No Rerolls is a travelogue through the beer-soaked island of Pandaria. Featuring plenty of commentary about the alcohol, meals, and essential pandarian characteristics, Anton tells you what you need to know about our new panda allies. The Dranei bits were a tiny bit disconcerting but I think the comedy worked out well.

Two more episodes will be released; the next one is expected in about 10 days.

WoW Moviewatch: Major League Azeroth

It's been a while since we've taken another look at Major League Azeroth, by AFK Players. If you want to talk about a unique, amazing vision for WoW machinima, you don't need to go any further than here.

I'm blown away by how contemporary the video still looks. Granted, part of that is probably that WoW's graphics haven't been massively updated; the game looks a little better, but we still have basically the same visual elements. So when we look at a video from 2009, we don't instantly think, "OMG, what was this drawn in MS Paint or something?"

I'm not really a huge baseball fan, but not much about Major League Azeroth is really about baseball per se. Take the time to check it out and let us know what you think.

WoW Moviewatch: Quest Busters, Episode 1 - Even Thieves Get Hungry

We've featured the AFK Players previously, but it's been a while since we've heard from them. The AFK Players are well known for amazing graphics, a catchy sense of humor, and witty, strong narratives.

They've now released what may be one of the finest machinima videos ever created, ranking up right up there with BLIND. Does that sound like big praise? It's meant to be. Even Mat McCurley said "Like, this is too good." Quest Busters has it all; absolutely astounding graphics, great pacing, and powerful characters. The animation in the video is unbelievably good.

Tanx and Wiki instantly won my heart. The characterization and design of each character was pitch-perfect, and the animation tells you everything you need to know about their relation. The story is fun and includes one hell of a twist ending.

I fervently hope we see future episodes.

WoW Moviewatch: Wrath of a Couch Potato

AFK Pl@yers over at Myndflame have created Wrath of a Couch Potato, inspired by Seth Green's acclaimed "Robot Chicken" series. The movie runs a little over 8 minutes in its entirety, and the experience is kind of intense. I suggest watching it somewhere you can really pay attention.

I hate to gush, but I really loved this movie. It's packed with laugh-out-loud moments, and each segment lasts only long enough to deliver a solid joke. The production values are through the roof. Each scene is well framed, and put together with an eye for detail. There's more than a few quotes in here that you can expect to permeat the Trade channel's zeitgeist for the next few months. So, to be fair, if you get annoyed by people endlessly quoting good machinima films, you might get annoyed from what comes out of "Wrath of a Couch Potato."

Click here now to check out Wrath of a Couch Potato.

WoW Moviewatch: The Patchie Chronicles

When an enterprising goblin miner, Patchie, accidentally releases an orc that has been frozen for years, they have a lot of catching up to do. Starting at patch 1.05, they take us on a storytelling journey, seen through the eyes of the major characters. Along the way, there are epic battles, potion selling, and a friend using his fortune to open a ... zoo?

As Patchie and the orc arrive at their destination, with golden piggy in hand, the orc has an opportunity to meet his hero, Thrall. After becoming disillusioned and temporarily losing his way, he sets off to be a hero in his own right. However, everything is not as it seems!

The AFK PL@YERS, a Taiwanese machinima team, created The Patchie Chronicles to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of WoW launching in Taiwan. Most viewers will have to pay close attention, as it is narrated in Chinese, but subtitled in English.
