WoW Moviewatch: Gilnean Like Me

WoW Moviewatch Gilnean Like Me
Today in WoW Moviewatch: Staff Picks, we look at that which remains the favorite machinima of Mr. Rossi. Gilnean Like Me is not only an overwhelmingly stylistic feast for the eyes but a sort of escapist machinima for those Gilneaophile who felt done wrong by the game's storyline. Why would we feel that way? I'll let Mr. Rossi explain:

The lyrics work perfectly - it's exactly what SHOULD have happened in Gilneas. Forsaken show up, Forsaken die again.

It's not that we dislike the Forsaken. They're the nicest bunch of cannibalistic undead you could ever hope to meet. It's just... the Gilneans wouldn't have just rolled the tummies over. Thanks to Gnomechewer for keeping the dream alive! Click here to see it yourself.

WoW Moviewatch: Gilnean Like Me

This one's for Mr. Rossi, who says that Gilnean Like Me is still one of his favorite machinimas. And what's not to love about Gnomechewer's celebration of the Gilneas story? It's got angst, beauty, story, and some of the most mind-blowing visuals you could hope to see.

I'll admit, I'm almost disappointed we haven't seen something like this to celebrate Pandaria. There's certainly the official cinematic and that's awesome. But it doesn't have the pop culture appeal and gut-punch story we see in this piece. But, hey, there's still plenty of time to rectify that!

WoW Moviewatch: Gilnean Like Me

If you asked me to boil down a single thing that really excited me about being Gilnean, I would have to answer: Gilnean Like Me by Gnomechewer. We've featured this video before, of course, but I felt like it was time for a rerun.

We see a lot of Horde anthems around here. But it's relatively rare a video comes along that captures the zeitgeist of the Gilnean experience and really gets you pumped to wolf out. Gilnean Like Me feels like it answers every Horde anthem without trying. It's less a battle song than chants about how awesome Gilneans are. It bites into the experience with tooth and claw -- just like a Gilnean damn well should.

WoW Moviewatch: Gilnean Like Me

With Cataclysm slowly approaching, now's a good time to take another look at this worgen masterpiece by Gnomechewer. Gilnean Like Me tells the story of the Gilnean people against the backdrop of the Forsaken invasion. As a group of undead sets foot in town to follow up after a brutal bombardment, the group discovers the terrible curse that has been levied on Greymane's people.

This video is probably one of the most beautiful and stunning portrayals of Gilneas and its wolven fate. I like the sense of horror and stoic resolve portrayed by the narration, as well as the dark sense of inevitability. The moment when the protagonist "wolfs out" is incredibly satisfying; it's a suitable crescendo to the story's build-up. That kind of execution is rare, and my hat is off to Gnomechewer.

WoW Moviewatch: Gilnean Like Me

Gilnean Like Me is the newest movie by legendary machinima creator Gnomechewer. It is the story of an army of Forsaken who seek to raze Gilneas, only to discover something far more vicious than they were expecting. This video is absolutely astounding and is a lot of fun to watch. The visual work by Gnomechewer is riveting, and the way he lets his story unfold is clever and perfectly paced.

I think this kind of story is going to be more common when Cataclysm is released, but I'm glad Gnomechewer is helping to lead the charge. His instinct for visual techniques brings a lot of moodiness and horror to the tale of Gilneas, and helps frame the story of Greymane for new-to-lore audiences. If you have a friend who asks about the story of Gilneas, I think this movie is a great place to get them started. It not only shares bits of the story, but it communicates the genre of the lore.

Check out Gilnean Like Me, and let us know what you think!
