Watch The Guild

My copy of 'The Guild'

The Guild has been around for some time now and I’ve enjoyed watching it many times over. It’s about the woes of RL existence for a group of gamer geeks.

I first noticed the main drive behind The Guild, Felicia Day, from another similarly awesome project – Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog. Aside from that, I’m also a casual but frequent World of Warcraft player. Thus, when I encountered The Guild I was absolutely trilled as it does a great job of illustrating the tone of some of the weird social stuff that comes out of leading a dominant online life.

The Guild has gone on in to a third season and I see no end in sight. I’m loving the third season and finding the earlier times remain well worth watching. I’ve also found the DVD is cool as they’ve tossed in the various little extras one might expect from a DVD (commentary, etc).

Check it out some time if you are willing to have a good giggle..

For the lazy, I’ve embedded the first episode below / after the break and if you like it, I’d suggest you toss a few bucks their way as this isn’t some lameo cash grab, but rather sincerely creative people producing something of real value and substance. You can also watch The Guild on youtube of from www.watchtheguild.com.

Wow 14 day trial disc!

So I was chillin at London Drugs, picking up some random cable when I noticed a little DVD package for sale for $2. I simply had to get one. It’s a World of Warcraft Trial DVD. As such, it must contain all the game files needed, which makes the $2 worth it (they actually gave it to me for free). See, those of us who play this game find that an installation of it kinda sucks. This is due to the multiple CDs needed to provide the ~6gb of content that needs to be installed. Well, anyway, I figure this will come in handy for my “Warcrack” pushing hobby.

The point here is go get one if you’re a Warcraft addict.
