Bro, Do You Even Tank?

This brings back so much WoW nostalgia for me because it shows just how absurd epic gear gets. (Except I'm a girl. And every time I played as a female, my toon would somehow get progressively more naked. But that's a card for another day.)
Does anyone still play? Did anyone used to? Are you guys excited for the new WoW movie? I've got to admit that the trailer looked all sorts of boss.

@ButterflyBlu Nothing at all. I logged off. Went to log in a week later, and I couldn't. I contacted Blizzard, and they say that I was banned for leveling up too fast. And to get me reinstated, I would have to have supplied them with a copy of my driver's license and birth certificate. I said fuck that. I wasn't giving them all of that info for a video game.
@Danse At like the 1:30ish mark, it shows Lothar being all into this orc chick and I was like OoOoO scandal.
I know I'm curious about it( the movie, not the game), but my son is definitely on the WoW bandwagon. O_O
@ThePervySage really?! A birth certificate?!! Dude, that blows. :( That's really too bad. We could have had so much fun and become best frie- wait. That depends. Important question. Alliance or horde? -_-
@ButterflyBlu Do you play? I used to until I was banned.

The Warcraft Movie set the Internet on Fire
Zug-Zug! At last week's San Diego Comic Con, Blizzard stoked the fan fires surrounding the immenent release of the Warcraft film with the unveiling of the trailer for the attending crowd. In cooperation with Legendary Pictures, the film was first announced back in 2006, though filming did not begin until 2014. Based on the games, the movie will take place around the first meeting between the Orcs and the Humans, as the Orcs desperately seek to escape Draenor, their crumbling homeworld. Making use of demonic energies, a portal is opened between Draenor and Azeroth, where the humans reside. Not keen on the invading Orc Horde, the Humans engage in battle to drive them out, beginning a long history of hatred between the two races. Fans of the games will have a lot to be excited about, with characters like Medivh and Durotar taking the stage. Though people who have never been exposed to Warcraft will also enjoy the film as an epic fantasy adventure movie. The trailer footage quickly found its way online vis a vis audience members who filmed it on their phones, and just as quickly it was taken down from all hosting sites by Blizzard, who intend to release the full trailer sometime in November of this year. Despite not being able to see the leaked trailer, however, there is still a lot of details to read about and watch regarding the film. The film had a panel at SDCC where the director Duncan Jones and the cast came to answer questions about the film. The film was originally slated for a summer 2015 release, though it has been pushed back to 2016, so as to fine-tune the effects and make the film as close to perfect as they can. The film will feature heavy use of CGI to render the Orcs and other fell creatures, and painstaking efforts have been taken to ensure that it is as beautiful as possible. Until the trailer is officially released, ease your anticipation (or grow it) by checking out the film's panel discussion:
Disney Princesses Singing In Their Native Languages
English is not the native tongue of Disney Princesses. Everyone has grown up with Disney Princesses because they are the most innocent form of childhood entertainment. With the fantastic movies comes even better songs which make them so appealing. Your infatuation with them carries on into adulthood and before you know it, you're sitting in your living room watching the movies singing along with your own children. Crazy right? Well, here's the thing, English is the default language, not the native one. All Disney Princesses have come from other countries other than Pocahontas who was a Native American in North America (present day USA). It brings up a really interesting change because when you watch the Disney movies in their native languages, it has an entirely new meaning because it's authentically and historically correct. Disney Americanizes our movies through using English and we forget that languages play a huge role in presenting emotions, interactions, conversations, and without a doubt, our singing. One of the biggest trends on the internet is hearing a Disney Princess sing her hit song with her own native finesse instead of a defaulted English one. Enjoy and really take notice on the differences in emphasis and fluidity of the lyrics. Because of changed language, the songs also have different lyrics to fit the melody which slightly alters the song even if it has a similar universal meaning. Disney is genius. What do you think?
Ever Get Chased Down By An Orc Before?
I know we've got quite a few other people into MMORPGs around here, so when I saw the new collaboration commercial the Blizzard animation team released with Intel, I was like "VINGLE. THIS NEEDS TO BE ON VINGLE." So it's safe to say the Warcraft movie was kind of a dud, right? But it's also safe to say it was HUGE in mainland China, which a lot of movie critics say is due to the saturation of regional film promotion. (Plus, China loves its MMOs. But that's besides the point.) But I feel like if this commercial was a full-length film, Warcraft would have been SO much bigger in America. You guys know that part in Jumanji where all the animals are just bursting through the wall and spilling out onto the street? Yeah, just imagine that with an aggressive-looking 8-foot orc, and you've got this crazy new commercial. You guys, I'm pretty sure if I saw an orc bust through a building, land right in front of me, and let out some crazy orcish battle roar, I would probably pee my pants. At least. Anyway, the commercial is an amazing example of the skills of Blizzard's CGI animation team, and if you didn't really LOVE the Warcraft movie, the least that you could give it was that the visuals themselves were at least 10,000% super sick to see in action. Check out the full commercial above and then let me know: How would YOU react to being hunted down by an orc? Do you think you could avoid him? (Also, admit it: How many of you guys have played WoW before?)
