Moviewatch Smackdown: Tales of a Death Knight

(Warning: If you do not want your Wrath of the Lich King gameplay experience ruined, do not watch this video. It contains spoiler commentary, as well as footage from the beta.)

Today I've featured movies in the action-storyline and PvP genres, but I'm curious to see if it's all about the WotLK beta. Nobunaga has created three movies so far in his Tales of a Death Knight series, which takes a deeper look at the Death Knight class. He uses commentary to describe what is going on, which isn't always clear in some of the other videos out there.

Episode 1 touches upon character creation, Episode 2 deals with the starting quest, and Episode 3 discusses the last scenario of the starting quest. I chose to feature the last of them because I feel that it's his best. By the third video, he drops the creepy voice and offers some interesting insight. I think that once he finds his format, his series will find success.

That's it for today's Moviewatch Smackdown! Would you like to see more videos like Trollbane, Tosan 4, or Tales of a Death Knight? Furthermore, why do you think that they all (unintentionally) start with a T?

Moviewatch Smackdown: Tosan 4, or Trying Too Hard

Earlier today, Moviewatch Smackdown looked at a story-related action flick, but some of you may be up for some pure action. Despite its title, as well as over 230,000 downloads and a 4.94 rating on Warcraftmovies, this Rogue PvP movie, Tosan 4 - Trying Too Hard, doesn't take itself too seriously. With a typical soundtrack involving Linkin Park, as well as some humorous dialogue peppered in between the fight scenes, Tosan seems to have scored himself a crowd favorite. While it's not my particular cup of tea, I can definitely see why it received so many views -- he had fun with it!

How does Tosan 4 fare against Trollbane? Is this preferrable to storyline or music videos?

Moviewatch Smackdown: Trollbane

We all know that I've been more than a little harsh on certain genres of WoW videos. Unless it's a storyline machinima or music video, you're not likely to see it on Moviewatch. However, I'm open to a little experimentation, so I bring you Moviewatch Smackdown. Today, I'm going to pit multiple genres against each other in a battle to the death.

Our first movie, Trollbane, is an action flick, but not in the hardcore sense. We previously wrote about DTB's beginning effort, Assassine, which some felt followed too typical of a storyline. This time, he's back with a story that's not too heavy on the dialogue, instead focusing on the battle. While the editing was good, the voice acting left something to be desired and the sound levels were a bit off. He seems to improve his skills with each new attempt, though!
