The Warcraft movie’s first trailer had some pretty amazing sound design, even slyly including a cameo from Blizzard fans, but YouTuber Robert Mermet decided to take a more authentic approach, editing in sounds from the original source material, specifically 1995’s Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness.
The video uses both sound effects and music from Warcraft II to replace the entire audio track from the trailer. It’s worth watching if only to see some impressive lip syncing between the new characters and the original voice clips. Well, that and the zug-zugs. You can never get enough zug-zug.
The real version of Warcraft, which may or may not include zugs, is scheduled for theatrical release on June 10th, 2016.

Speed-runner Sean “Gladd” Gallagher achieved the first sub-nine minute run of Destiny’s second raid, Crota’s End.
Achieving a total time of 8:59, Gladd beat the previous record by two seconds. His 313 light-level Hunter, possessed an impressive loadout—a 316 attack power Raze-Lighter Exotic sword and Bones of Eao boots—which helped him slice and jump his way quickly through the raid.
Throughout the run, Gladd swapped between the various Hunter subclasses in order to stay best equipped for each section. Nightstalker allowed Gladd to quickly dispose of the Knights that surround Ir Yut with its tether, while Bladedancer granted invisibility that made it easy for his character to sneak past the mobs leading up Crota.
Crota has been a popular boss for the Destiny community to challenge, with Gladd even defeating the boss last October using only a Rock Band Drum kit as a controller.
