It's definitely felt like a mad world around Azeroth for the last few months. Not only are we all busy jumping on Deathwing's back, fighting for the future of the world, but half our compatriots are visiting another universe as Jedi and Sith. Things have just felt odd. The Pandaclysm is coming so...

This isn't the first machinima for Boombox by Lonely Island; that was this version by Atraira. But funny songs will live on for ages. This version by Zervanity was created for a graphic design class. I think it's interesting that both videos primarily used draenei to tell the story. Are draenei t...

New folks are trying their hands at machinima all the time. A guildmate of WazopVids tipped us off to the Nagrand Arena Showdown. This is Wazop's first machinima, which makes it a particularly impressive achievement. There isn't much plot involved with Nagrand Arena Showdown. Let me summarize ...

This is Snikkle's first machinima, which makes it an astounding success both in terms of content and form. The video uses mostly in-game footage to tell its tale but it does so in a creative, animated way. It is definitely not just two people standing around. The story itself is sweet and effecti...

This will be our last holiday-themed video. Even the in-game version of the holiday is over at this point, but I wanted to squeeze this one last film into the rotation. Why? Check it out and you might see why. A guild got together to go caroling. While they presumably were completing the achie...

Have you ever wondered what John Lennon would look like as a WoW character? Well, wonder no more, my friends. Machinimist Eric Cartmans recreated the music video for Something in Azerothian glory. One of my favorite touches in this piece is the original video being simultaneously played in the...

We've seen a lot of landscape tours of Azeroth; it's a favorite subject for fans and machinimists alike. Beautiful Azeroth caught tipster Simon's eye when it appeared over at Kotaku Australia. With such a gorgeous video making the rounds, there's no way we could ignore it. Beautiful Azeroth is...

We're still in the grips of Winter Veil hysteria here, with the occasional shout-out to real-life Christmas. Today's video parody is titled Stoney Baby. It's an obvious parody of Santa Baby, aimed right down the barrel at Rich Maloy of Big Crits. Written and performed by Erin Campbell, Stoney Bab...

Winter Veil isn't quite over yet, which means we still have a little time to enjoy some WoW holiday carols. Arrowstorm put together this video celebrating a GM's gifts to guild members. 12 Days of Winter Veil is a nice review of what we can expect from WoW for the next year. While the song fee...

Some folks just want to spend a nice, relaxed Christmas weekend with friends -- or, alternatively, a pack of local critters. We all have our own tastes. But then a big, bad wolf comes along and makes that impossible. Don't worry, though. The protagonist is a clever target dummy and works out a pl...

The holiday season is in full swing, which makes it a great time to celebrate with some WoW-themed holiday music. This is Oxhorn's I Saw Three Rogues. This is a pretty distant parody video; while it's obviously evocative of the holiday season, none of the lyrics in the song directly reference Win...

A Warden's Demise is the second installment in Karash's series about Maiev Shadowsong. The movie involves some deviation from strict WoW lore, but a little deviation is good in the name of art. Now for the fair warning -- this movie is long. It is perhaps one of the single longest machinima video...

Finally, Wowcrendor has decided to lay down a parody to the hit YouTube series Epic Rap Battles of History. If you're not familiar with the series, Nice Peter grabs two pop culture icons and forces them to engage in comedy rap. The videos are well acted, clever, and a lot of fun. In Wowcrendor...

This song is one of our favorite ways to ring in the holidays. It's steeped in the holiday spirits, a healthy love of the game, and solid amounts of talent. It remains one of our most requested Christmas videos. It's kind of a shame that All I Want for Christmas is a Blue is starting to show i...

It doesn't take very long to find a Dragon Soul group using the Raid Finder. Certainly, you won't have time to read in-depth descriptions and watch complex videos before the queue pops. For those of you who need a quick run-down or just don't have the attention span for anything much longer, Fatb...

The Secret of the Crystal Eyes is the kind of machinima we regrettably don't see a lot nowadays. Essentially, it's a cinema-format movie. It runs about 22 minutes long and features characterization, plot, and world development. While the particulars of the movie may or may not appeal to you, I...
