Watch The Guild

I've been a big fan of Youtube for a long time now, and this will likely be a frequent topic of (one-way) discussion here at Heretic Machine. I'm particularly fond of shows that people put together for the 'tube, like The Angry Video Game Nerd, or The Spoony Experiment. One that I have taken interest in recently goes by the name of The Guild.

The focus of The Guild is placed on a "guild" (MMO speak for a group of people allied with eachother), The Knights of Good, playing in the ever-popular World of Warcraft. The Knights stand for good, and all things... good. Unfortunetely, not all is good with one of their members, Codex. Slowly growing less and less attached with the real world, even her therapist has given up hope of helping Codex lead a normal life. On top of that, online flurtation has lead to one of her guild mates taking their relationship a step further than she'd like.

Anyone who has played an MMO will be able to identify with the cast of characters: The sweet girl, the ultra gamer, the mega nerd, the omni mother, the dewd, and the weirdo. Personally, I've never been in a guild without each of these stereotypes running about, which makes the show all the more comical. I can't recommend this enough to fans of MMOs, especially WoW players. There are four episodes up, as of this posting, and they seem fairly dedicated to producing more. The star of the show, Codex, is played by none other than Felicia Day (who some may recognize as the potential slayer Vi from the last season of Buffy), so there is at least some proffessionalism involved with the project. It certainly shows, so check it out!
