Even fans of Nadeo's legendary TrackMania racing series (which, even if you haven't played, you might remember from the wild 1k Project videos) might be forgiven for thinking they've been abandoned.

Today's overkilliest video: Nerf Druid

Finally, some hard video evidence that druids are a bit too overpowered in World of Warcraft. You can't really argue after seeing this video.
