Leeroy Jenkins Can Still Be Funny

First, I’m sure there are plenty of non-World of Warcraft players who haven’t heard of the legend of Leeroy Jenkins – if you fall in that category then read the background here. Otherwise enjoy Leeroy in some American Civil War action (click on image for full size):

Death Star: Blame The Contractors!

I’m a bit of a Reddit junkie, and I stumbled across this little gem of a discussion about the Death Star’s destruction as revenge for the annihilation of Alderaan:

If Disney Made The Original Star Wars Trilogy

So, we all know that Disney is going to be the Force behind Episodes 7-9 of Star Wars, but what would it have been like back in the 1970s and 1980s if they’d been behind Episodes 4 to 6? This video provides one possibility of what could have occurred:

So maybe George Lucas’ stewardship looks a little better now?

SWTOR Patch 1.4: Having Fun With The New Moods

G’day gamers. Recently BioWare released patch 1.4. Unfortunately for me it had no new story content to consume –
so what new content could a bored player like myself do to have some fun with in patch 1.4? Simply put, I went around being a pervert while using the new mood selections for a laugh.

At first it started out as just a normal day on the fleet with the usual peak time of 40 players online. I started by surveying the area using /binoculars with my mood set to Eager:

SWTOR Patch 1.4

After surveying the area for victims of the new mood system, and my eagerness to try them out on some people, I decided I should probably get down from my top secret lookout and get to work:

Once I had climbed down from my top secret hiding spot in the Combat section, I proceeded to drive to the centre of the fleet around the bank area looking for my first victim:

And within mere seconds I was checking out some fine looking Imperial ladies:

The first victim was a Twi’lek female:

The second victim a Human female:

The third a Zabrak female:

And finally a Chiss female.

After only a matter of minutes I had been from one person to the next staring at them with the Astounded mood switched on, but little did I know that looking at them in this way was earning myself dark side points and within a couple of minutes I was dark side rank 5 as seen in this picture:

I quickly blamed the closest weird looking guy I could find of being a pervert and then proceeded to hide as quickly as possible:

After blending in with my fellow Imperial Storm Troopers for a few minutes thinking all is well:

I was discovered by a female bounty hunter!

…who then proceeded to shoot a green sticky substance into my face from her two pistols for the next seven minutes.

After an awkward seven minutes she then helped clean my leg armour and I returned the favour:

She even helped repair my neglected speeder, which didn’t even have a roadworthy.

After thanking the Bounty Hunter for not turning me into the authorities, I left the fleet in my personal spaceship, set my crew skills up and then proceeded to log off for the night.

So: what do you guys think of the new Moods added in patch 1.4? Did you have as much fun as I did with them?

Leave your interesting tales below 😀

Gizmo and Socks: You Bastards!

Gizmo and Socks: You Bastards!Ok, I have to admit WoW can still make me laugh. I’m early days in my levelling up in Mists of Pandaria, and have just completed the quests of which the title of this post comes from.

I won’t spoil anything by detailing who Gizmo and Socks are, but well done Blizzard on an amusing quest line combined with some slightly different gameplay to boot. I particularly liked the sniper work required.

Over to you fellow MoP’ers – did you enjoy these quests?

The Best Darksiders 2 Trailer Ever

Update: this time we’ve embedded the RIGHT video…

Sunday is gaming humour day here at The Oceanic Gamer, and the humour doesn’t get any better than this one dug up by Aaron R on the Gamers of Oceania Facebook group.

It’s a literal interpretation of Darksiders 2 and it’s an understatement to say it’s funny:

Is there anyone that didn’t laugh a bunch of times? Reveal yourself!

One Gamer Unimpressed With Blizzard’s Security Breach

I am red-faced at YOU, Blizzard!

Ok, that one gamer is Francis, serial purveyor of parody on YouTube, which makes it even more fun. If you haven’t seen Francis’ videos before, he lets fly with opinions on a whole range of gaming topics (here’s his great effort on SWTOR early access last year).

This time he’s got some thoughts on Blizzard’s most recent security breach and as always it makes for some great entertainment.

It’s expletive filled entertainment to be sure, so consider this not safe for work or kids:

I think he was pretty frank with his feedback to Blizzard?

Star Wars – Call Me Maybe?

There’s not a huge amount to say about this video except to marvel at how long this would have taken to put together. To enjoy it fully, here’s the original song this one is parodying. Then enjoy this beauty:

Anyone want to guess how many hours that took to put together??

Stormtrooper and Blaster Fire Equals Mess

No wonder those Stormtroopers fell like sacks of potatoes in the movies!
