I tweeted about this earlier in the week (via GamingAngels), but I just had to post it on the blog because it’s that awesome. Still not a soda drinker, but this has great animation, great girl power.
I know, I know, this doesn’t have anything to do with WoW or video games. But DJ and The Fro is the reason I’ve been able to play so little these past three months. I’ve been in LA since March, animation directing for this show, which is airing for the first time ever tonight right after the MTV Movie awards at 11pm ET/PT. The writing is pretty hilarious and I’m very excited to be a part of it. Hopefully the youtube clips aren’t too mean. The good news is that we contacted the people who made each and every clip and got permission to air them. And by ‘we’ I mean the hardworking producers and not me. I embedded the above trailer directly from the MTV site, so sorry for the ads at the front.
Tonight’s airing is a ‘sneak peak’ – It will air regularly starting June 15.
I have a problem with buying too many DS games and then not playing them all. Currently still working on Professor Layton.
EDIT: Wow, a lot of people find this site for the first time through this post. Hi there. If you’re wondering what the heck this is, it’s a web comic about a gamer girl and her friends and cats. (And this is the blog part underneath it.) You can see new comics M-W-F on the home page and start going through the archives there. You might also find the about page useful.
A lot has been going on in the gaming website world! Or maybe a lot is always going on, and I’m just noticing it this week.
Crispy Gamer’s Editor-in-Chief John Keefer recently started a biweekly column about his experiences in World of Warcraft. It’s good to see an overall game site cover WoW. Would love to see more MMO coverage from them in the future. They’re a great site – they don’t take any advertising dollars from game publishers, and a lot of their articles have a very personal feel. You can check out John’s first two columns here and here.
In other news, Gaming Angels just relaunched with a great new design. Not just a game site, GA is a place where women can go for all kinds of geek culture – and not say ‘Huh, everything here is written by a guy.” – an all too often occurrence when visiting most gaming sites these days. I’m looking forward to visiting GA regularly.
And lastly, as I’m sure anyone who reads my comic already knows, WoW Insider is now WoW.com! Not only did they acquire the coveted domain and redesign their site, they also added a social networking feature that’s supposed to integrate with the Armory and even WoW itself with an addon! From the looks of it they have a lot to work on (it’s in Beta and they want our feedback), but I’m excited and I hope it takes off. One thing I’m wondering is how many people are going to use their real name as their profile name? I’ll probably use mine, because I’m all about being out in the open. I just hope I’m not the only one. Love to hear your thoughts.
