WoW Moviewatch: Malfurion and Sylvanas: Episode 3

If you haven't been keeping up with Malfurion and Sylvanas, the series explores what it would be like if major lore characters Malfurion and Sylvanas were married ... And in a sitcom. This latest episode explores how Malfurion and Sylvanas first met, and also explains what happened with Tyrande.

Personally, I think this is the best episode so far. I've always thought the set-up of this machinima series was pretty cute, but I'm now really looking forward to the next one because Slightly Impressive just keeps nailing it. Michael Gray mention that the voice acting and machinima had really started to come together in Malfurion and Sylvanas: Episode 2, and I would say that's still happening. At no point while watching this did I feel like the voices were off.

The only problem with this episode is that I don't have any cookies in the house, which will make more sense to you after you've watched the episode. Seriously ... I think I need to bake cookies now.

WoW Moviewatch: The Other Sha

Mr. Gray is out for the day, but he left this new machinima from Slightly Impressive for us to watch. The short, 2-minute video presents us with some of the other Sha players can find in Pandaria, such as the Sha of Fanboyism and the Sha of Elitism. Oddly, none of these other Sha have been incorporated into the game lore yet, possibly because they afflict players more than NPCs.

The production of the video is pretty simple overall, but it seems like it was a lot of fun to make for Griffter and his ensemble of voice actors. Each cycle of the joke gives an opportunity for more humor and I'd say, for the most part, the script and the actors deliver. The light and amusing commentary on the player base is nothing new of course, but I always appreciate a new take on it.

My favorite Sha is the last one -- I won't say what it is so I don't spoil the joke, but what's yours?

WoW Moviewatch: Malfurion and Sylvanas: Episode 2

Who's the most compelling sitcom married couple of Azeroth? Slightly Impressive's Malfurion and Sylvanas. Without a doubt, Slightly Impressive has nailed his ouevre with this machinima sitcom. I love it.

The voice acting could use some tightening up and the pace kicked up a little faster. There are a few awkward pauses played for laughs, but I wasn't certain it was a purposeful awkward pause or just an honest-to-Elune awkward pause. Still, that kind of feedback is almost universal; faster pace, tighter soundtrack. The same could be said for nearly every movie ever made, so Griffter's on the right track.

WoW Moviewatch: Azeroth Nature Network: Pandaren Special

Spoiler Warning: There be spoilers in this video. Not so much the review, but there's spoilers around. They're not big spoilers, really, and certainly no more spoilerish than the promotional material. But technically, spoilers so be warned.

Slighty Impressive's review of the panda storylines in Azeroth Nature Network: Pandaren Special does a pretty good job of summing up What You Need To Know. Especially if you've not spent much time with a new character, you'll get a decent idea of what's going on.

I like this style but Griffter could have picked up the pace a tiny bit. While I certainly think of the Pandaren as laconic critters, the narrator would benefit from a shot of sugary speed.

WoW Moviewatch: Other MMOs


While some games might feel like wholesale copies of World of Warcraft, it's not like Blizzard is immune to the notion that good ideas should be incorporated into WoW. But what if Blizzard went crazy with that practice?

Slightly Impressive's Other MMOs tackles the idea of Blizzard replacing pandas with aspects of other games. It's a good original idea from the machinima maker. While it'll take a keen eye to spot all the references, Other MMOs is clearly Griffter's best work yet.
