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 Ma...

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 so...

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,...

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 sto...

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 ...

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...

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 i...

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 stil...

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, th...

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 thi...

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 i...

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 dis...

As a lore columnist, I'm terribly familiar with the story of Arthas and the fall of Lordaeron. But hey, I've never heard the story from Arthas' side. So what's a bitter, mostly dead former Lich King to do? Slightly Impressive tackles the subject with the Lore According to Arthas, in which the form...

You could probably take a successful stab at the premise behind Slightly Impressive's new video, Disney in Azeroth, just from the name. On the surface, it's another quick-take, short scene video with a huge collection of punch lines. Loaded with dozens of little jokes, DIsney in Azeroth is one of m...

Horde Propaganda is a little bit of a diversion from Slightly Impressive's usual style, but it's one that I enjoy. Taking a page from those old timey propaganda films, Griff commits a solid send up of both the Garrosh loyalists and the all over war effort. I also think this is one of Griff's mos...

Slightly Impressive tackles the long, slow evolution of WoW with a brief reminder of what the game used to be like. Remember the long haul from Deadmines every time you needed a new PUG? The pain of learning your way around a new zone? The heartfelt despair trying to find a new group? WoW Then a...

Ever had that feeling that your boss is secretly an ancient scion of evil, ready to destroy the world? Or that your supervisor would take an entire raid to defeat? It seems Slightly Impressive has had that feel because WoW Bosses as Actual Bosses is some hilarious stuff. Whether you're being rem...

I think it's a watershed for most parody writers to tackle the various categories of trolls. It's just something you have to do, whether you like it or not. Write about online culture long enough, and you eventually have to tackle the troll issue. I guess it's Slightly Impressive's turn, because ...

Game of Gnomes is a pretty good send-up of HBO's massive epic series based on the books of the same name. Slightly Impressive obviously couldn't feature some of the naughtier aspect of the show, but he definitely pointed out some of the more absurd ones. That throne of swords is pretty amazing...
