WoW Moviewatch: Worgen of Stormwind

Baka Savant and Wicked Wood created Worgen of Stormwind long before the Gilneans all went fuzzy. It's an older video, but it still retains its charm. Even though the video uses the old mob model for worgen, it's still a whole lot of fun.

I like the music, love the vocals, and I'm still enamored with this video. I wouldn't hate seeing an update to it, since we now have worgen as a playable race. That probably wouldn't be worth the effort, though, considering how pitch-perfect the rest of the video is. We can just use our mind's eye to sub in the player models for werewolves instead.

WoW Moviewatch: Chronicle of the Annoying Quest Ep 32


This post is running a little behind the times, as Chronicle of the Annoying Quest: Ep 32 has actually been out for a little while. This is the beginning of the final season for the Chronicle, a final send-off of the plots, characters, and gags that have been running for 31 previous videos.

I want to take a moment and point out the immense amount of time, consistency, and effort displayed by the crew of the Chronicle of the Annoying Quest. The dedication they've shown to this series has been absolutely amazing. It can be incredibly difficult creating and authoring with Chronicle's consistency, not to mention the amount of work and organization that must go into keeping track of this much video inventory. The team are probably very proud, and they absolutely should be.

My favorite bit of this video is, as usual, the characterization of the Blood Elf. I know, it's shallow, but they nail it exactly on the head. Every time I see a belf do that hip-cock head-tilt thing, that's pretty much exactly the voice I hear in my head.

WoW Moviewatch: Worgen of Stormwind


One of my joys about this job is that I get to watch machinima and WoW movies alongside my beloved Draenei fiancee. It's part of our daily routine, and it's a great thing to do together. It definitely helps supplement my machinima knowledge, though, because she's much more a music geek than I am.

When I played Baka Savant and Wicked Wood's Worgen of Stormwind for the first time, she completely and utterly fell in love with it. She kept saying how musically intelligent it was, and how smart the creator was in handling the complexities of the original song.

Me? I just totally geeked out to the idea of Worgen running rampant in the Alliance capital city. The video and the song are both incredibly fun, and I think the clean, sharp animation style lets you enjoy the music even while geeking out to the Worgen.

Of course, we're all hoping that the video gets updated when playable Worgen hit the scene. But until then, aaaawooooooo! Worgen in Stormwind!
