WoW Moviewatch: Fireside Guild Rap

Yesterday, we showed off one guild recruitment video by Nimii. Today's another (the last of Nimii-week here on Wow Insider). There's a lot happening in this video, so let's just dive right in.

First, I get asked occasionally whether or not anyone's created an Alliance-pride video. For one reason or another, most of the machinima world seems to play Horde, so there's few videos that scream, "Woo! Alliance!" Well, here you go.

Second, the lyrics and performance are awesome. If more WoW raps had this kind of flow, cleverness, and cohesiveness, I think people would be more interested. This is very nicely done.

Lastly, the picture and graphics were awesome. The video made use of necessary content without resorting to over-the-top graphics or raw filler. The in-game graphics weren't a limitation; those graphics are exactly what this video needed.

Really great stuff. Clearly, I hope Nimii does more.

WoW Moviewatch: What is a guild to you?

What is a guild to you? is another machinima from Nimii. In terms of recruitment videos, this quickly became an absolute favorite of mine. Not only does it do a good job of highlighting the guild as a unit, but the video itself is creative a fun.

And while I'm definitely a fan of the animation, that's not what makes this video amazing to me. It's the voice. That's one of the best Freeman impressions I've ever heard in my life. I actually wondered, briefly, if this was some cut up and remix of his voice from other works. All in all, this ends up being an astoundingly good recruitment video.

WoW Moviewatch: Thriftshop

I've got 20 gold in my pocket but need to be stylish. The auction house isn't going to help me. What do I do? Well, if this video is to be believed, it's time to hit the Thriftshop. With some dazzling visuals and a great sense of fun, this WoW-styled video for the hit song will help lift you into a new fashion culture.

One of three videos by Nimii we'll be featuring this week, this video is a breath of fresh air into the machinima scene. We desperately need more new artists. And it absolutely helps that Nimii's videos overflow with joy for the game and fun with the creative process. Keep checking back this week for more.
