Monday, 1:00 p.m. EST: Shawn -- Wurm Online
Join Massively's Editor-in-Chief, Shawn Schuster, as he takes you through his favorite MMOs of each week. Considering the fact that he can't seem to stick with one game for long, you're bound to see a variety of titles, including betas, new releases and old favorites. In this introductory episode, Shawn's going to show us around the Massively village in Wurm Online. Why is he so in love with this game? How many Massively readers have joined up so far? How many tries does it to take to make that stupid mallet in the tutorial? Tune in and find out!
Tuesday, 6:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Star Trek Online
This week on Rise and Shiny, Beau will be streaming some Star Trek Online! While we have covered it for a while, Beau hasn't given it the full newbie once-over since, well, beta. This is his chance to walk through the game from the very beginning. Join him in game, his character's name is Beau Hindman.
Wednesday, 2:00 p.m. EST: Krystalle -- DC Universe Online
This week Krystalle will be streaming the villain side of DC Universe Online as her final hurrah before next week's release. The adventures will continue from where Freezer Queen last left off, stirring up the HIVE members who are stealing Lex's nanobytes for Queen Bee. Two Queens enter; one Queen leaves in a baddie battle royale! Or, you know, she'll just die a whole lot, and it will be an hour of schadenfreude. Either way, should be fun!
Wednesday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Larry -- DC Universe Online
The adventures of Massively Man and Massively Woman continue. Now that Bane's supply of Venom has been cut off, Batman has asked our intrepid heroes to take on the Man Who Broke The Bat.

With the NDA lifted, Massively has the amazing opportunity to give you a weekly sneak peek into the one-of-a-kind MMO DC Universe Online before it is released. Our heroes' journey began on Brainiac's ship, where we were rescued by Superman then taken to Gotham City to be mentored by Batman himself. Each week, we take you through each step of the becoming a legend in the DC Universe.

Saturday, 9:00 p.m. EST: Karen -- RIFT
