Gun Control

Today’s WoW raid had to be cancelled due to “technical issues” on Blizzard’s side. However, with everyone gathered up on Mumble we had the opportunity to just kill time talking about whatever that happened to came up. Including gun control, which marked the appearance of this video. That’s how I learned about a new stand-up comedian I have to follow.

A pack of pandas

Nice bug in the Mists of Pandaria beta caused a bit of a commotion on the test realm:

The Raid

“You know that day-dream you had as a little kid? The one where you and your friends got together to battle the evil dragon? Well, these guys are kind of doing that. Every night.”

The Raid looks like a really interesting project I just found out about: filmmaker Kevin Michael Johnson teamed up with some people from TankSpot to produce a full-length documentary on raiding in World of Warcraft.

The film is aimed at the general public to let them share – and maybe understand more – the excitement and feeling of this kind of experience. Hopefully it would even help with improving the general image of people who play MMORPGs.

The filming was done in 2010 so the newest expansion, Cataclysm, is not included. The footage has scenes from Icecrown Citadel from back when The Lich King was boss.

For starters I recommend reading through the project’s initial Kickstarter page. There is also a trailer for the documentary that will premier streamed on 6 August.

pvc – return

One of the guild members in pvc is studying films. He set out to make a movie, and just recently shared this teaser with us. I think it’s quite epic. Only if I was his editor I’d change the taglines a bit. Nevertheless, pjn‘s pvc – return (teaser):

Sidenotes: That Patchwerk kill was quite epic, half the raid dead and Alice, our healer, moonfiring PW to death. And we worked quite hard to finally see Malygos drop to the void like that.
