MV Guide is a weekly rundown of the MMO gaming events planned on Massively's Livestream channel.

Every week, the Massively staff logs in to play various MMOs live and in person, and we'd love for you to drop by the channel and visit. We have a combination of regular weekly games and new surprises, so you'll find a variety of titles to take a look at. During livestream events, you can participate in the live chat, ask questions to learn about the game, and simply spend some time with Massively staff and readers. (Of course, livestream events are subject to the whims of outside forces like server-side gremlins once in a while.)

Follow along after the jump to see what's on this week's schedule!

Monday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MagicDuel
Beau will be back to covering lots of games, and this week's Rise and Shiny stream will look at MagicDuel, a cool browser-based MUD. Well, sort of a MUD. A semi-graphical, semi-Flash-based, text-based, roleplay-heavy MMO. It's just... different. You'll have to watch and see!
Tuesday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MapleStory
Once again Beau is using his livestream schedule to catch up on games he has been meaning to get back to. (Shh! Don't tell Shawn!) This week he will be exploring MapleStory, an older but still very successful side-scroller from Nexon. He's going to start with a brand-new character and go through whatever adventures the newbie lands bring him!
Tuesday, 6:00 p.m. EDT: Patrick -- Champions Online
Patrick's livestream event last week fell victim to supervillain Comcast Outage, but he prevailed in the end and will rock into the first part of the Vibora Bay Crisis! The initial content of the Revelations expansion starts with a bang as our hero begins work for the mysterious Valerian Scarlet.
Tuesday, 10:00 p.m. EDT: Brandon -- Star Trek Online
Hang out with Brandon for an evening full of Star Trek Online as he shows off the revamped STFs on the Tribble test server. Also, feel free to join in on the chat through the Livestream site and give him requests on what you would like to see. If you happen to be around in-game and want to team up with him, send an invite to @bfelczer.
Wednesday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MapleStory
Let's do some more MapleStory! After all, it's a great game with tons and tons to do, so why not join Beau and yell at him in the chat room? Only yell nice things, though.
Thursday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Justin -- Lord of the Rings Online: Rise of Isengard
Last week Justin sang -- and he died, frequently. This week, will the bard of the bog survive long enough to make it out of Dunland and into history? Gather all your rotten vegetables together and prepare to hurl them at the dorkiest livestream you'll hear all week!
Thursday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MapleStory
MapleStory is good for a lot of things, but you know what it's the best at? Streaming for Beau. At this point in the week, Beau will be either very glad he tried a new character in the game or very upset. Join in to see which!
Thursday, 9:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy and Karen -- Alganon
Join Jeremy and Karen as they explore the world of Alganon. This free-to-play game from Quest Online got off to a controversial start back in 2009. Jeremy and Karen will check in to see how the game fares today.
Friday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MapleStory
Ah, the last day of Maplestory for this week! If you want, you can join Beau in game (you should know his in-game name by now) and come and give him a lot of free, cool stuff like chickens or monkeys. Feel free to!
Friday, 6:00 p.m. EDT: Brendan -- League of Legends
In this week's Not So Massively livestream, Brendan and a few friends take the plunge and give incredibly popular MOBA League of Legends a try. If you've ever played League of Legends, tune in to give Brendan your tips and support -- he's going to need them!
Friday, 9:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy and Karen -- Allods Online
Jeremy and Karen will celebrate the launch of Undaunted, the latest Allods Update. They'll roll up some characters and see what's new in-game!
Sunday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Brandon -- Magic: The Gathering Online
Tune in as we continue our journey through the Multiverse of Magic: The Gathering Online. Watch as Brandon PvPs against other players from around the world, all of whom unleash spells they have gathered along their journeys. Feel free to join in the chatroom to ask your questions about the game. And if you happen to have a MTGO account, email him for a friendly duel!
