SOUTH PARK MEETS MACHINIMA

Talk about good timing! Yesterday I blogged about my introduction to Machinima. I find out today that tonight's South Park episode has a large portion of it shot in Machinima!

The town of South Park gets addicted to the online game World of Warcraft. Part of the episode will take place inside the Warcraft game and you will see the characters of Warcraft with the South Park voices as the kids play the game. Here is the trailer for tonight's episode:



As you know, if anything is featured or made fun of on South Park you know it is either really popular or a hot topic. I know that this episode is making fun of the game and those who play it but it is also showing the popularity of Machinima.

That looks pretty cool! My coworker says he saw it and was hilarious. I'm going to read up on that Machima. (or however you spell it)

Aw, I'm sad I missed it. I should ask my dad how it was. Maybe he tivo-d it!

It looks hilarious.

Your dad did ti-vo it. I saw it a few nights ago and thought it was awesome. It made me want to play some online Splinter Cell. (If anyone here plays Chaos Theory shoot me a message at my blog)

One of the funniest parts of episode (in my sick opinion) is when Cartman's mom brings him a bedpan because he can't leave the game for even a moment.

I don't think it really makes fun of the game or people who play it, but rather the geeks who do nothing BUT play it all day and become so good at playing it that it's unfair for other average players. I'm assuming its probably on iTunes if you really want to check it out.

That was a good episode. I'm sure dad will show you it when you come home, katie.
