This week we have some Guild Wars developer fun with Richie and then again with Adventure Mike, a bit of Wurm Online exploration and construction with Jeremy and the creator of the game, the first stages of owning land and building a house in Second Life with yours truly, some MOBA action in Heroes of Newerth with Dylan, and the usual Star Wars: The Old Republic goodness with Larry.
So what are you waiting for? Click past the cut to catch up on the streams you might have missed. While you're at it, bookmark our Massively TV guide so you won't miss any more! In a special livestream event, the ArenaNet staff joined Richie to play the new Guild Wars Beyond content: the third part of Winds of Change. After Richie was slaughtered multiple times by the Ministry of Purity, ArenaNet's Andrew Patrick, the self-proclaimed best Monk in Guild Wars, jumped in to assist. Did their combined strength win the day or will the Ministry of Purity take over Cantha? Watch the show and find out!
I hosted an hour-long housing session to answer some of your basic questions. I rented some land, laid a foundation, and started erecting walls. Soon I'll be hosting a house decoration stream, but until then, you can catch up on the basics by checking out this video!
Jeremy Stratton was happy to be joined by Rolf Jansson, creator of the sandboxy staff favorite Wurm Online, as he explored mine shafts, mountain tops, and the PvP server. If you've ever wondered about just how massive, open-world, and customizable the experience is in Wurm Online, this video is a perfect introduction. Building a home and terraforming the land can be a bit much, especially for those who might be new to the game or to building in general. Thankfully, Jeremy co-hosted this stream with someone who knows more about the game than almost anyone, so consider yourself clued-in. The duo go through the process of flattening the ground, building a house, and even claiming a deed.
On last week's stream, Adventure Mike didn't have much luck in terms of avoiding eating dirt and kissing the mat in Guild Wars. This stream will be an extreme education in why you should never run directly into battle when you are not the tank and why thorn elementals are not your friends. Despite a few noticeable... set backs, Mike and the illustrious Shannon were able to complete the Bloodstone Fen mission as well as a few subsequent quests to get them prepared for the next. Stay abreast of their progress through the Prophecies campaign as they work toward their ultimate goal of Hall of Monuments treasures!
Not So Massively games are quickly becoming one of the most popular topics on Massively, so it should be no surprise that we often stream MOBAs as well! Last week Dylan sat down for a game of non-stop combat in Heroes of Newerth, a fancy MOBA that's proving to be one of the more successful titles. He walked through the very beginnings of a match, and we even got to listen in on the chatter between him and his teammates. If MOBAs have previously scared you just a bit, this stream might help alleviate some of the tension. Maybe.
Larry Everett sat down for his weekly stream of Star Wars: the Old Republic to not only stream the game but cover some of the recent news coming from the far side of the universe. He also spends time fielding questions from the audience, but be warned: Larry might just answer some spoiler questions about the end of the game. Don't worry; you'll be there soon enough. As an additional treat Larry plays music from the collector's edition of the game during the entire stream!
