The Guild

The Guild

I discovered the webseries the Guild, this week on Netflix. Created and written by Felicia Day who also plays the lead character ‘Codex’. It’s a mildly amusing and quirky show that started as a series of youtube webisodes. Each webisode (I just like writing the word webisode), is about a group of MMORPG players and their game play thwarting ‘real life’ distractions.

Each webisode is about five to ten minutes long, with an entire season lasting a bit over an hour. I just finished season three, last night. Plenty of amusing bits but no real laugh out loud moments, that is until Wil Wheaton joins the series as the villainous leader of a rival guild. I’m still smiling just thinking about it . . . check it out . . .

    I’ve heard good things about this, but haven’t gotten around to watching it yet. Did you know Felicia Day has a cameo in the Dragon Age 2 DLC? I know, I know, compared to Dragon Age Origins DA2 was a bit of a let down, but I still enjoyed it and you should definitely play it before you pick up DA: Inquisition later this year. (Which is going to be epic!)

    Steampunks, although the ‘punk’ part might not make it seem so, are, lets face it,
    just a geek of a different colour (as in TWoO’s ‘a horse of a different colour’, and no, I am not calling SPs horses, or Pony People or Furries or anything like that.)
    Just as there are uber geeks who take things way to seriously, there are likewise SPs that do as well.
    It’s all play, pretend, dress-up and lots of fun.

    I started watching it and just finished watching series 5 last night. Highly amusing! I’m surprised they managed to get so many star guests.
