Game On, cast of The Guild. Game On.
The hit MMOG IRL web series The Guild today released another music video to keep the gaming masses enthralled. This time, the Bollywood style, dance-tacular tune deals with some of the same themes which Felicia Day’s character, Codex, is battling in Season 4 of the series.
Gaming versus real life, and how to balance the two, takes center stage. So does Zaboo, aka Sandeep Parikh, who shares singing duties with Day.
Some of my favorite moments — Bladezz (played by Vincent Caso) doing the Orc/ Hammer dance, Tinkerballa (Amy Okuda) dancing like a pro, Vork (Jeff Lewis) donning 8 arms, Clara (Robin Thorsen) eyeballing the man-candy.
And, of course, the witty banter that includes lines like, “I’ll press your hot keys” and “Never g-quit on me, we’ve got keyboard chemistry.”
The video premiered at San Diego Comic-Con and also coincides with the airing of Season 4 of the show, currently up to episode 2. Coincidentally, today also happens to be the three year anniversary of the show’s launch.
Anyhow, enough babbling about what’s inside — let’s get to the video, already!
I’m not sure if it quite competes with Do You Wanna Date My Avatar, but that opinion is likely to change after I’ve heard it a few dozen more times :D. Plus, DYWDMA is a HUGE hit to try to pull off a 2nd time. But I wish them luck and success. The show and video are live on MSN, Xbox Live and Zune — and the song will apparently be for sale on iTunes next week.
Can’t get enough of Felicia Day’s singing antics? Click through for a look back at The Guild’s first music video, Do You Wanna Date My Avatar, plus the first two episodes of Season 4 of The Guild — all behind the cut.
