Warcraft-Themed Episode of Family Guy Coming on April 1?

Recommended Posts

pBFyt8a.jpg

Family Guy on Twitter announced that the upcoming episode of the series might have some Warcraft references and you can watch it on Sunday, April 1.

Hopefully, this is not just an April Fools' joke. We'll need to wait and see!

The fourteenth episode of Season 16 is called "Veteran Guy".

After Peter and the guys get caught pretending to be military veterans and are found guilty of the Stolen Valor Act, a judge sentences them to join the U.S. Coast Guard in the all-new "Veteran Guy" episode of FAMILY GUY airing Sunday, April 1 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (Source)

Why? FG sucks balls and WoW isn't what it was during the South Park episode.

Well, at least it's possible to level up just by killing boars :D.

Completely agree that Family Guy is a terrible show, but it is a nice homage. I'd rather it was something by South Park again. Or even a Rick & Morty special.

This. Family Guy really isn’t funny at all. It gets old fast and has terrible jokes. At least shows like South Park are creative, innovative and unique, which is why I’ve continued to like it, even up to this very day. Same goes for Rick & Morty.

Sorry going to have to disagree here, as a one time big fan of South Park it got way to dumb and offensive to stay funny for me, how you can say its creative or unique is the real joke here, South Parks whole deal is to poke fun or bash political or pop culture events, if they started doing cutaways they would be just like family guy. Family Guy might not be the best show on TV or anything but it and American Dad are still way more funny then Rick and Morty, every time I see that shit I wanna puke at how disgustingly stupid it is, I mean does Rick HAVE to belch and puke slime on himself after literally EVERY fucking word he says or are the writers that lazy to come up with actual dialogue? Lets not kid our selves ether the whole show is nothing but a rip off of Back to the Future Characters perverted into a half hour of sarcastic rants, dick and fart jokes, and offensive shock humor, I watched a few episodes and slightly chuckled at maybe 1 or 2 out of 10 things they ever said or did, it could be better with some changes, Personally I think they need to revive the Futurama Series and have them all eat there dust, but that is just my opinion.

Rick & Morty is not a rip-off, but a parody to Back to the Future. It started as a pet project of Justin Roiland, one of the show creators, and later evolved into Rick & Morty we know today.

As for Rick belching constantly, that is because it is a literal belch, as Justin Roiland (who voices Rick, Morty and pretty much 70% of the cast) actually records his lines as Rick while drinking, to capture 100% of the character's personality. In fact, 90% of Rick's lines are improvised.

Yes, Rick and Morty has a very acid type of humor, but has clever references to sci-fi movies, shows and comic books. But I respect that it is not the kind of humor that suits you. What really gives Rick & Morty a bad name is the fandom, as usual; they ruin everything.

However, I can't find American Dad nor Family Guy funny whatsoever. Sure, I respect Seth MacFarlane because like Justin Roiland he voices half of the characters, and he is very good at it. But every joke feels extremely forced, cringey and most of the episodes is Peter saying "Hey, remember that time I did X in Y with Z?"

I mean, honestly, how is this funny?

I agree not everything they do is funny, and my rant wasn't so much to defend Family Guy as much as it was to just point at that saying it is worse then another show that does basically the same thing in a different context does not make it more or less a better show, making a broad statement that a show sucks simply because you don't like it doesn't make it a terrible show, same goes for me as I said I might actually like Rick and Morty if they would make a few changes here and there that rub me the wrong way. I guess I have to be in the right mood for that type of "humor"

I see where you getting, and I can say I agree.

To be fair, I didn't like Rick & Morty when I watched the first episode. The art looks ugly and weird and the excessive burping and drooling also bothered me. But something was catchy about it. As you progress in the series you see that Rick is basically the villain of the series, and that no one in their sanity should find him cool. Morty is the real star of the show, and it progresses with him being more confident in himself and speaking his mind as he learns all the boogaloos from Rick.

Rick & Morty is a good show because it acknowledges that Rick is a terrible human being, even though he is a super genius.

Yes that much of the show I got, Sometimes I can even relate to Rick in a way, he is fed up with the world and pretty much don't give a fuck no more while at the same time trying to find redemption teaching Morty not to be such a whiny little bitch all the time, and that is what got me interested in giving it a try. If they would stick with that moral high ground more and do less of "lets see how gross or weird we can get today" then I would enjoy it a lot more, because as you pointed out I do enjoy some of the movie,comic,ext. references that are for the most part funny

You got 1 thing right, would love another south park wow episode.

But Family guy is just as good as south park, and Rick and Morty, seriously?

Rick and morty is the worst show ever, first of all they dont have a single funny scene in ANY of the episodes.

It could be good if they told a good story however, yet they fail there aswell.

Maybe my sense of humor got destroyed by all the deep fried memes I have been inhaling, but I do find that video funny, though perhaps only if you view it as an ironic joke, rather than an actual one. As I do not watch the show, it is hard to say which it is. 

 

Anyway, what do you guys watch these days?

Have you ever hear about "the absurd"? It doesn't have anything to do with anithing, and had no sen whatsoever, and that's the fun. I can agree that they had a particular sense of humor, but i'll love to see a warchraft theme chapter... I may hate that chapter too, bcose that kind of thing can go terrible wrong...

Oh no. I'm not one of "those" Rick & Morty "fans". You don't have to "be smart" to "get the show". Sure, if you understand science stuff you probably get some extra chuckles and "OH I UNDERSTAND THE REFERENCE" moments, but man, it's just a show about a drunk grandpa and his bitchy lil grandson on space multi-verse adventures. The usual stuff.

I'm not one of these types of Rick & Morty "fans" either. In fact, "Pickle Rick" is my least favorite episode, ever.

As for shows, I'm not really watching anything. Been checking some old stuff on Netflix (Fullmetal Alchemist, Avatar), but nothing to really invest my time on. Although "Violet Evergarden" is one I'll bingewatch once all the episodes are out; the animation is gorgeous. I've recently finished watching "Devilman: Crybaby" and made me wanna kill myself.

Also, that's where your nick comes from?

Guess this thread goes to show that the only objective thing about humor is that my sense of it is better than yours.

This is what i thought too. There is no "this humor is better than another". If i think its funny, then it is. If someone else calls its stupid, it is. Look at me, i really like Family Guy, but i don't like South Park. Can't tell about Rick and Morty, never tried it. 

But well, its funny to read up how you're argueing why something sucks or it's the best thing in the world!

      Mythic Ny'alotha has arrived and the race starts today (for US and OC guilds at least), with two streaming events to watch! We'll also be doing our usual daily coverage in the form of summaries every morning (and more if something unusual happens) and this is the place for all those articles!
      The race should be a damn good one this time around, if the Eternal Palace is anything to go by, as Method and Limit were very close at the end there. As the final raid of the expansion, this one holds a bit more prestige then others, and with Method having taken 3 of the major races and only lost the smaller, Crucible one, the pressure will be even higher for them to maintain their throne.
      You can check out the streaming events which are already live right here (Limit not going for a slightly different name for their event is an interesting choice):
      Method's Race to World First Ny'alotha stream Complexity-Limit's Ny'alotha Race to World First stream The US/OC servers are scheduled to come up at 7 PM CET, under 3 hours from now, but might come up sooner as well. Meanwhile, you can check out all our previous coverage of the race, including the recent N'Zoth double-loot drama (which still hasn't been resolved) and the WF Heroic kill on him.

      We have another huge batch of 8.3 hotfixes before the weekly reset, with big changes to Corrupted items and the raid being the main focus. We also get a buff for lesser vision rewards, huge nerfs for Twilight Devastation and Echoing Void in PvP and a lot more. No word on the double-kill on the same reset and missing achievements for N'Zoth we talked about earlier today unfortunately.

      There's also a minor fix for Classic as quest credit for the Elune's Blessing quest should work better now.
      January 27 (source)
      Achievements
      Fixed a bug that prevented eligible players from receiving credit for It's Not A Cult if a raid member died during the N’Zoth the Corruptor encounter on Normal or Heroic difficulties. Creatures and NPCs
      Credit for rare creatures in the Vale of Eternal Twilight and Vision of the Twisting Sands is now shared. The Spirit Drinker creatures should no longer get stuck in an immune state. Dungeons and Raids
      Ny'alotha, the Waking City Corrected an issue that prevented Protection Paladins’ Blessed Hammer (Talent) from dealing damage to Wrathion, Drest'agath, and Il’gynoth. Wrathion Fixed a bug that prevented players from looting Wrathion if he was defeated while transitioning. Maut The amount of mana gained by Maut through Dark Offering has been increased on Normal difficulty. Mana gained by Maut through Devour Manifestation has been increased on Normal difficulty. N’Zoth the Corruptor Harvest Thoughts no longer counts player pets and guardians when dividing the damage and Sanity loss effect. Slightly expanded the distance at which melee characters can attack Exposed Synapses on Normal and Heroic difficulties. Horrific Visions
      Fixed an issue where Madness: Split Personality and Madness: Dark Delusions removed players from stealth. Lesser Visions
      Starting with this week’s resets, the first Lesser Vision daily quest of the week now gives 3000 Coalescing Visions (was 2000 Coalescing Visions). Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Gladiator's Spite ’s on-use ability cooldown has been reduced to 60 seconds (was 90 seconds). Humming Black Dragonscale ’s levitation effect no longer triggers if the player is affected by a Neural Silencer or Magical Intrusion Dampener . Writhing Segment of Drest'agath 's damage has been increased by 20%. Corrupted Items Echoing Void (Corrupted Effect) can now only trigger from abilities that are on the global cooldown. Echoing Void can now be removed by abilities that dispel Magic effects. Twisted Appendage ’s (Corrupted Effect) health has been reduced to 1% of the player’s maximum health (was 20%). The ground spell effect indicating Eye of Corruption 's (Corrupted Effect) radius of effect is now easier to see on sloped terrain. Lingering Psychic Shell Now applies an absorb shield that prevents 80% of incoming damage, up to the amount of damage indicated on the item. While inside Ny'alotha, the Waking City instance, the wearer’s Corruption Resistance increases the total amount of damage absorbed by up to 50%. Developers’ note: Due to several issues with this trinket, we have changed its functionality to be more intuitive. The tooltip will be updated in a future patch to more accurately reflect the trinket's functionality. Twisted Appendages (Corrupted Effect) can no longer be struck by area-of-effect attacks such as Mages’ Arcane Explosion. Killing Twisted Appendages no longer grant on-kill bonuses from Talents and abilities (e.g. Warriors’ Victory Rush ). Fixed a bug which prevented Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect) from triggering on some melee and ranged abilities. Heart of Azeroth Corrected an issue where The Crucible of Flame (Essence) sometimes incorrectly healed Wrathion during his encounter in the Nyalotha, the Waking City raid. Player versus Player
      Twilight Devastation (Corruption Effect) has a 12-second cooldown when engaged in combat with enemy players. Twilight Devastation now deals 50% reduced damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Echoing Void (Corruption Effect) now deals 50% reduced damage when engaged in combat with enemy players. Professions
      Players should be able to discover Cataclysm Engineering recipes again from crafting recipes on that list. Quests
      Players are now able to perform the Nordrassil ritual during “Lunar Preservation ” without breaking any rituals afterward. WoW Classic
      Quest credit for Elune's Blessing should now be granted more consistently.
      Previous hotfixes:
      January 24th January 23rd January 22nd January 21st January 17th

      We have a quick official reminder of what's changing with this week's reset, from the Mythic and LFR  raid additions to Mythic+, Corrupted item drop and item level changes. You can also check out the Season 4 survival guide and Conquest schedule here.
      Season 4 Weekly Reset (source)
      Here’s a reminder that tomorrow morning, we’re going to see some significant changes:
      Ny’alotha will open for Mythic difficulty and the first wing of Raid Finder difficulty. Mythic Keystone dungeons at +7 or higher, as well as PvP Rank 2 or higher, will now award end-of-run items that scale up to item level 465 (at Mythic +15 and Gladiator, respectively). Weekly chests for Mythic Keystone and PvP activities now contain Season 4 items, which are always Corrupted (if the item is eligible – trinkets cannot be Corrupted). Weekly chest rewards now scale up to item level 475, and do not Warforge/Titanforge.

      With N'Zoth's ending turning out to be a bit anti-climactic for some players, it seems the Old God might indeed have some tricks up his sleeve, and the pretend-N'Zoth "hacking" Blizzard have been incorporating into their tweets might be a bit more real. It seems killing the endboss of Ny'alotha doesn't register as a kill for some groups, meaning they'd get the loot from the boss (including the mount you'd get for Ahead of the Curve), but not the achievement or quest progress and, most importantly, the lockout. Some groups have re-killed him and received loot a second time.

      As you can see in the video below, the boss goes down to 2% and then proceeds to die, and even the logs have it marked as a 2% wipe, but the cutscene played, the boss was on the ground and the loot was given:
      And here's a second example:

      There's a reddit thread discussing it, with some players reluctant to re-kill the boss for fear of suspensions, but still needing the Ahead of the Curve achievement or quest progress, while some have already killed it twice, but also mention fearing bans. They've all submitted tickets, tweeted customer support etc, but still no word some 24 hours later. Hopefully it gets resolved soon and those anxiously waiting for a re-kill without the fear of repercussions can get their clear, or at leas their achievement and quest progress, before the reset. With the Mythic race coming up tomorrow, hopefully this has just affected a small amount of players.
      Huge thanks to Schneider on twitter for bringing this to our attention!

      Well, this one's "a bit" late, but we thought we'd take a look anyway since the Mythic progression race starts tomorrow, and we can still get a good feel for the fight and the goal all those guilds will be running towards. The kill was claimed on Wednesday, January 22nd by US guild Imperative, which means it took them a day to clear all of Heroic and down the final boss. The final pull took just over 10 minutes and we'll definitely be seeing that number go up for Mythic, with the unknown mechanics and possibly phase(es?) being added to it, as well as the big hope for an additional Mythic-only cutscene or dialogue snippet to give N'Zoth a bit of a better sendoff than we've seen so far.

      Imperative is one of the guilds that will be streaming their Mythic progress as well, and are featured on the Method stream event. They're a pretty new guild and haven't had any high-level success in the Mythic race so far, but as they're comprised of former Blood Legion, Wildcard Gaming and Vigil members, there's plenty of experience there and they seem to be pushing a bit more this time around so they're definitely one to keep an eye out in the US/OC scene.
      Here's their raid composition (not quite sure why there are 21 players listed, presumably a bug, or Imperative are getting REALLY creative with the game mechanics):

      And here's the (disappointing, as per general consensus of the community) final N'Zoth death cutscene after his defeat, which has many players hoping and praying for a new one after the Mythic kill:
      The Mythic progression race starts tomorrow and we'll be covering it here as well, with daily summaries of the events with plenty of clips and stats, and it's going to be a damn good one with two separate streaming events and the two top guilds, Method and Limit, being so close after the last race.
