WoW Moviewatch: Azeroth News Network: Love Is In The Air Special

The Azeroth News Network: Love Is In The Air Special by Slightly Impressive spells out the inconsistencies and oddities involved in this February holiday. While the video is a tiny bit late for the real life Valentine's Day, there's still plenty of comedic value left for it in Azeroth.

I've always wondered if it made me a creeper, sitting lonely in Dalaran and desperately begging strangers to have a picnic. But, hey, it's just an achievement. What's love got to do with it?

WoW Moviewatch: Lowbies: The Great Boost

It's hard to believe that Slightly Impressive is already up to episode 5 of Lowbies. When the guild master gets distracted by pet battles, the group of Lowbies need to tackle the decision whether to boost themselves up to level 90. As you might expect from a comedy series, all does not go according to plan.

I think it's interesting that Griffter uses this video as a way to highlight some unexpected drawbacks to boosting a character. Presented with dozens of new buttons and skills, an eternal lowbie might not even know what to do at max level! Also, training can be problematic. And fishing. Fishing is always a problem.

WoW Moviewatch: Winds of Murlockia

Slightly Impressive steps forward in time to brings us a vision of the next expansion (after that warlord one), named Winds of Murlockia. And while we've seen plenty of expansion parodies in the past, Impressive's nod to the soul-crushing history of raids gone by is appreciated. Oh, sure, rose colored glasses help us reminisce about week-long rep grinds, but I think we're better off these days. So kick back, snort some soda, and enjoy the future playable races we all really want.

WoW Moviewatch: The Raid Boss

Every wondered what's going through that raid boss's mind? I mean, here's a pack of Alliance or Horde heroes who comes storming into your bedroom, shouting and screaming and generally making a mess of things. It's no wonder the odd raid boss gets cranky about the whole thing. After all, what was Marrowgar doing that was so bad? He was standing there. Chilling.

Well, Slightly Impressive is giving a voice to the unheard in The Raid Boss. As a bonus, it features the cutest raid boss to ever murglglglgle. Perhaps Garrosh will learn a little something.

WoW Moviewatch: Lore According to Garrosh

We all know that Garrosh has a trial going, even if someone's going to let the ex-warchief somehow slip through their fingers. But every story has two sides, and you'll be shocked when you view the Lore According to Garrosh.

I loved the trial format of this video, which is a perfect setup for some one-liners and amusing anecdotes. Slightly Impressive's animation and vocal guns have really focused over the years, and I'm constantly more than just slightly impressed by the produce. Bonus points for using old models in flashbacks; that feels incredibly appropriate to us old timers.

WoW Moviewatch: A Brief History of WoW: Mists of Pandaria 2

A Brief History of WoW: Mists of Pandaria 2 continues the story of the latest expansion, as summarized by Slightly Impressive. It's actually a pretty good summary of MoP, if you weren't able to follow the story for some reason. I was impressed by how non-partisan Griff's explanation ended up being, even if Garrosh's escape got pinned on the pandas. This is a completely fair characterization of Jaina, though, and exactly the woman we've all come to know and love.

WoW Moviewatch: Brief History of WoW

While it's not quite a brief history of time in WoW, Slightly Impressive's tour of the most recent expansion in A Brief History of WoW. Pointing out the little giggles and cognitive dissonances of Mists, the Slightly Impressive team sums up all the moments that made us ready to move on with the story. This video pretty much sums up exactly what I'm going to remember about our panda-heavy days.

WoW Moviewatch: ANN: Winter Veil Special

You can always trust Slightly Impressive to tackle the hard issues in the World of Warcraft, like the looming threat to toy-openers everywhere. In the Azeroth News Network: Winter Veil Special, the team brings a little yuletide cheer and parody to our favorite fake holiday.

Bonus points for the shout-out of stranger danger at the end. And look, I don't care how tough you are, talking snowmen are scary.

WoW Moviewatch: Operation MMORPG

The World (of Warcraft) was riveted when we found out that the NSA lurked in the hidden spaces of Azeroth watching us kill internet dragons. (I fully expect an official document that says, "repeatedly stood in fire: no threat.") But can you imagine what it must have been like behind the scenes? Did they use game cards? What was it called?

Slightly Impressive tackled the shocking news with the new video Operation MMORPG. While the subject of privacy is obviously controversial, I think you'll find SI handled it with all the grace and composure you could expect.

WoW Moviewatch: Returning WoW Players

If you've been gone from WoW for a while, jumping back into the game can be like diving into a shockingly cold pool. There's the shock at new races, the shock at talent changes, and plenty of other shock. It's shocking, is what I'm trying to say.

Slightly Impressive has captured the experience in Returning WoW Players, a sort of ode to the staggered veteran coming back to Azeroth. It's the kind of commentary that Slightly Impressive is really good at, so take the time to kick back and wonder just what's up with all these pandas.

WoW Moviewatch: Colonel Azeroth and the Planeteers

The Earthen Ring gather five players to form Colonel Azeroth and the Planeteers in order to protect Azeroth from bad stuff and destruction. While the video spends some time providing critique about the old Captain Planet cartoon -- a little odd, considering how old that cartoon is -- the video still delivers plenty of laughs based in modern day WoW. This video works especially well for me because Captain Planet never made sense to me for exactly the reasons Slightly Impressive points out.

WoW Moviewatch: Lore According to Deathwing

We all know that history is written by the victors. That approach makes Slightly Impressive's new video about lore particularly interesting. All the stories get a little more interesting when you review the Lore According to Deathwing.

This is some of Griff's best work yet. I loved the angle, the acting, and even the way he put the visuals together. I really hope he keeps pursuing this angle with other villains; it would make for a great series. Isn't it time Hogger had his say?

WoW Moviewatch: Unsung Heroes of Azeroth

Not every hero destroy dragons, fights gods, and lays down ancient heroes. Some of the most impressive feats in the world are performed by the Unsung Heroes of Azeroth. Whether we're talking about the postal service worker or the auctioneer, these are the true pillars of our society.

I think this is easily Slightly Impressive's best video yet. It's an original concept, contains plenty of subtle commentary about the game, and it's flawlessly performed. Very well done! I've really grown into quite the fan.

WoW Moviewatch: Toxic Players

The subject of toxic players is near and dear to many of our hearts. A few bad apples can turn a fun-filled night of enjoyment and relaxation into a real drag, not to mention the havoc a troll can cause in the forums. So it makes sense that Blizzard might try to eradicate their very-real negative impact on the game.

Slightly Impressive's cautionary video warns us, though, that the attempt to remove the Toxic Players could go a little too far. Bonus points for this dazzling use of animation to represent the talking... icons... of Blizzard. Really nicely done.

WoW Moviewatch: MoP Redubbed 2

WoW Moviewatch MoP Redubbed 2
SPOILER ALERT: This is a redubbed video of the cinematic end of the expansion.

Behind the cut is the latest Slightly Impressive video, portraying an alternate version of what those characters might have been saying. I imagine some of us might actually prefer this version, especially since we discover the real reason Thrall and Varian just can't get along.

It's a solid video and a great redubbing. You'll find plenty of jokes through the entire video, and the final point about gnomes... well. It's a thing gnome players notice at this point. You can't miss it. It's funny because it's true.
