Elegy is the newest machinima by PallyPowerXIX, who coincidentally is a regular on this site. It's a moody retelling of some of WoW's greatest moments, though it helps to know the lore behind Jaina and Arthas to really get it. I think that would be the most notable criticism of the movie: you need ...

No sooner had the lyrics left Elsa's lips than this video (and variants of it) demanded to be made. Even if you're not an Adele Dazeem fan, you've probably heard the song a few dozen times now. Arthas Lets It Go is well done in a few ways that would be easy to miss. The creator put a great deal of ...

Some of us who are perhaps more deeply invested in particular game worlds and lore tend to have a strong reaction when meeting the more famous members of the NPC cast. Perhaps it's a big name from another game in the series, a character that was prominently featured on the box art, or even a person...

When Nixxiom and Mooclucking tackle The Culling of Arthas, you can bet you're in for a good time. Of course, my mere Arthas can't possible do full Arthas to this Arthas, so I'd invite you to read their words about the video: Hello, Arthas. It's been a long Arthas but at last I'm here with a brand...

In 1999, Blizzard Entertainment was well on its way to becoming something of a titan in the PC gaming space. Riding high on hits like Diablo, Warcraft II, and the barely-a-year-old StarCraft, Blizzard had established itself as a purveyor of quirky, well-made, and entertaining games mostly of the RT...

In his original appearance, the Joker was a homicidal madman who used complicated toxins to murder people as part of a crime wave that only he really understood. In his original appearances...

Stepping off your flying mount into the streets of Dalaran you look around at the empty city, noticing only a few Horde and Alliance members running by as the skrit off on quests far and wide. The city itself is warm and inviting, contrasting nicely to the bitter cold of Northrend. Wandering in...

Don't call them "LEGOs" or "Blocks," although we would forgive you if you did make one of these common mistakes when dealing with Mega Bloks. The definitely-not-LEGO toymaker is releasing a series of World of Warcraft sets and now has the commercial to prove it. The 30-second spot shows the cr...
