Work Warning: There's some allusions and innuendo in this video. Welcome to another exciting round of Staff Picks in Moviewatch. This week, we'll be reviewing Hard Like Heroic by Nyhm, a particular favorite of Daniel Whitcomb. Why Hard Like Heroic? Nhym's still one of my favorite WoW machinimists...

Work Warning: Cursing, mature themes, and more. Be forewarned. There's sexism and racism, intended in a critical way. The first If Women Ruled WoW was mostly played for laughs. And while there are plenty of jokes in this sequel, the overall tone is much different. It feels a little more thoughtf...

Work warning: This video is pretty much one, long innuendo. After a crazy week of non-WoW machinima, let's get back to our wheelhouse with one of the first machinima I got into. While the majority of machinima upbringing was at the supple hand of Myndflame, my formative listening experience enjo...

Work warning: Some adult language and mature scenery in this video. The video is one big innuendo. It's been ages since we've taken another look a Hard Like Heroic by Nyhm. This video is about four years old but still retains its place as an iconic parody video. For better or for worse, Nyhm was...

In reviewing classic, favorite machinima, Joe Perez stepped up and proposed Pretty Fly (For a Draenei). I don't know what it is about the draenei, but they absolutely seem to inspire the very best music videos. Of course, in a lot of ways, Nyhm invented the WoW parody music video, so it's appropri...

The Molten Chorus is actually a very old video created by Nyhm. Back when the video was contemporary, Nyhm was wondering what the old vanilla, level 60 raid bosses were up to now that everyone was storming level 70 raids like Karazhan. As a result, he created this short, nostalgic treat. As I've...

We don't know about you, but seeing WoW machinima in this clip instead of R.E.M.'s lead singer Michael Stipe is totally fine. And the song -- a rendition of "It's the End of the World" by Nyhm & Sharm -- could be more gracefully sung, sure, but it's really the heart coming through that counts.

Nyhm originally released Nerf You in December 2009. This video is a proud continuation of his work through the years. However, I feel like Nyhm's really nailed down a particular dynamic in the lifestyle of playing WoW. Getting nerfed sucks, there's no doubt about it. But for every person who fee...

Warning: This video involves some not-safe-for-work imagery. That includes a scantily clad female, as well as more artistic nudity near the end. In order to really "get" this piece, you're probably going to need a little back story. First, there's this wonderful IRC channel where many of the su...

It's been a little while since we've heard from Nyhm and Summergale, especially as a duo act. That made the tip that they've released a new video an incredibly exciting bit of news. The bonus to this news is that the video isn't just a song, but also includes a brief mock-commercial as the opening...

I'll admit that I got to preview some of this new video, courtesy of Gigi. Long story short, the Hall of Fame of Belf Rap have come together to form a machinima rap supergroup called A6. (That's for Azerothian 6, you see.) Backed up by the awesome machinimator Red Eye Lobine, A6 has now released th...

This has been a week with lots of collaborative videos released. A new collaboration just hit the streets, and it's one that I was excited about the second I got the email from Cranius. Yeah, that Cranius. You know, Cranius of the Big Blue Dress? He's gotten together with Summergale and Legs to is...
