One of the most talked about web series, The Guild, has landed in the world of comic books! This internet sensation is a story about a group of online gamers who eventually meet in real life. “The Knights of Goodâ€, as they called themselves, found that although meeting in real life was awkward, they were still a strong team in game. This hilarious comedy series won numerous awards and has become a huge hit, gaining fans from all over the world.
Felicia Day, creator, writer, and star of “The Guild” now graces us with a graphic-novel prequel to the web series. The comic takes us back to the days before the “Knights of Good” and shows us how Cyd’s life was like before gaming, how she became Codex, and how her friendships with the guild members came to be.
In addition to the new graphic novel, the latest season of The Guild is now available on DVD and planning for Season 5 is in the works!
Purchase either The Guild graphic novel or Season 4 DVD (or both) at Barnes and Noble in LA at the Grove Mall and have them signed by the cast. Actors Felicia Day, Vincent Caso, Amy Okuda, Robin Thorsen will be at the event.
Be sure to get to Barnes and Noble early. Wristbands will be distributed today (Feb. 22, 2011) at 9am with purchase of ‘The Guild’ graphic novel or The Guild Season Four DVD. For more information on the event, see BarnesAndNoble.com.

Thanks for the link AJ!
I thought this iPhone wedding proposal was cute. :)
On October 24, 2010, Frank proposed to his girlfriend Kasey. He asked his geeky friends to help him pull off an elaborate surprise proposal in New York City’s Central Park. Hidden cameras were synced with special iPhone apps so the entire event could be watched from a safe distance. Kasey was lured to a specific location by a friend, who was in on the whole surprise. It was a totally awesome proposal and Kasey said “yes”. Thanks so much to everyone who helped out!!!

They played this really funny video at the Closing Keynote of Blogworld and New Media Expo 2010. I couldn’t stop laughing! I especially loved the part where Mark Malkoff was distracting Miss Destructo while she was blogging. How did she keep that straight face?! Watch and you’ll see! ;) Good times at Blogworld!

In October 2010, New York’s band, Atomic Tom had their instruments stolen. But fortunately, they knew how to improvise.
This is just an example of how bands are getting creative with their mobile devices. In the video, you can see “Atomic Tom” playing “Take Me Out” with only their iPhones! You may take away their instruments, but you can’t take away their heart and spirit!
Guitar iPhone app used in the video is iShred Guitar Effects (currently on sale for 99 cents this week only!)
I’m not sure how they did this video but it’s quite entertaining! Great move on Samsung for making this commercial. I really like the “amateur” video recording technique. :) Also, thanks to Leo Laporte for linking this video!
Working and watching the Apple Announcement on my iPad. :) Lots of new iPod models, iOS 4.2, iTunes 10 with PING, and Apple TV so far…
If Hollywood can make an overly dramatic film about the early years of Facebook, why can’t we make an overly dramatic movie about Twitter? Or at least the trailer to that movie! Check out the exclusive (parody) trailer for “The Twit Network” right here on Rated Awesome!
Huge thanks to the Gregory Brothers for creating the “I can Tweet” song that plays in the background. Check out more of their stuff and download the full song here.
I work in a library, so seeing this video inspired by an Old Spice commercial is amazingly hilarious to me!
To see how they made this video, see their blog.
Happy Starcraft II Day! Did you pick up your copy of Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty yet? If so, how long did you have to wait until you could install and start playing? I know some people were in a rush to leave work today to play. And some even called it a holiday altogether!
Enjoy, and remember to sleep tonight! Happy Starcraft II day!
