It's the most wonderful time of the year
With kids trick-or-treating
And everyone scaring you; be full of fear
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
It's the hap, happiest season of all
With those costumes to try on and candy to gorge on
And Stream Team to watch
It's the hap, happiest season of all!
There'll be streamers all hosting
Many streams that are boasting
Halloween events for their shows
There'll be scary ghost stories
told in their full glory on
Massively TV (see below!)
1:00 p.m. EDT: DC Universe Online -- MJ
Fighting crime is a worthy endeavor, but MJ has slightly different plans this time around. Tune in as she grabs her cape and flies to the nearest holiday activities!
4:00 p.m. EDT: Path of Exile -- Beau
Path of Exile just launched last week, so Beau will be sitting down with some of the dev team members to talk about the game while playing through it. Have questions for the developers? Come ask in the chat room!
7:00 p.m. EDT: EVE Online -- Mike
Join Mike as he journeys to the EVE Gate, the now-sealed unstable wormhole that served as a point of entry for all New Eden citizens. Traveling to the gate is a rite of passage many EVE players attempt, and while the route is relatively safe, anything could happen.
3:00 p.m. EDT: Final Fantasy XIV -- Jasmine
Spoiler alerts for miles as Jasmine shows viewers the final eight-player dungeon in FFXIV's main storyline quest.
8:00 p.m. EDT: Vanguard -- Beau
Join Beau as he logs in his brand-new character to continue with the "watch as I level" experiment. Join his character Vrij on the Telon server!
9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II -- MJ
As promised, MJ is delving into the many tricks and treats of Nights of the Dead. Join her as she celebrates this annual holiday with quests and goodies galore.
10:00 a.m. EDT: Hearthstone -- Richie
Richie is back with another round of Blizzard's upcoming online CCG, Hearthstone -- or as the cool kids like to call it, Murlocs & Mana. All right, the cool kids don't really call it that. Only Richie does, but he's streaming it, so tune in!
7:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warplanes -- Mike
Mike storms into World of Warplanes with his eyes set firmly on victory. Or crashing. Mostly crashing.
8:00 p.m. EDT: Mabinogi -- Beau
Beau is not exactly the best-dressed man on the Massively staff, but he just might be in Mabinogi! Watch as he hangs out with players and developers alike in order to spruce up his in-game look.
9:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m. EDT: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Larry
Gearing up 16 people takes time, but the Raid Night crew should be ready to tackle the Dread Fortress soon. One more week of Scum and Villainy!
6:00 p.m. EDT: The Secret World -- MJ
What better way to spend All Hallow's Eve than with MJ in the spookiest MMO out there? Join her as she soaks up the holiday ambiance and completes a couple of themed quests.
8:00 p.m. EDT: SMITE -- Blake
It's the end of the line for the Lunchtime Livecast. Come say goodbye to Blake during one final show. Even though it's late, it is still lunchtime somewhere! As one god reenters the SMITE pantheon (Sun Wukong), Blake exits the Panathenaic Stadium in Lunchtime Livecast #84.
3:00 p.m. EDT: Aion -- MJ
With the kinks all worked out (barring any weird updates), MJ has a chance to unfold her wings again. This time she's heading into Nightmare Circus, the limited-time dungeon available for the holiday.
7:00 p.m. EDT: TERA -- Mike
Mike hunts for those elusive few levels that will take him into new dungeon territory. Tune in for a glimpse of what it's like to level in TERA.
9:00 p.m. EDT: Lord of the Rings Online -- MJ
There are more skirmishes to experience, and as MJ promised, she's going to take you through a couple more. Perhaps this time she'll defend Weathertop!
1:00 p.m. EDT: Neverwinter -- Larry
Ultimately, Larry will build a Foundry quest with you, the viewers, but before doing that, he would like to explore some of the good existing quests to get an idea of what available. Join the stream and choose his adventure.
If you are just steps away from a candy-induced coma, this might be a good day to take it easy, Just be careful finishing off the last of those treats!
Need a little break from all the holiday festivities? You can take a breather right here with this assortment of non-Halloween shows. We can't, however, promise no singing.
- Cube World: It may only be in alpha, but Mike was able to dive in and experience this new voxel-based world.

Since we're in a singing mood, I have another one for you. It may not quite be holiday related, but just try to not sing along with it: It's the final highlight! Do do do do, do do do do do... Need to get that tune out of your head now ? I know I do! Then see if this can help distract you (it even starts with a dance party!):
The results are in! Only four of you correctly pinned the quote on the correct streamer. The answer to who's taking lead vocals (by his own admission) is: Larry! This week's question is a little easier to answer; in fact, there's no wrong answer at all. We recently gave you a heads-up on many of the holiday festivities throughout the the MMOverse. So the question is, which game do you think has the best Halloween celebration?%Poll-85331%
