MV guide: May 9 - 15, 2011

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 games to take a look at. During Livestream events, you can participate in the live chat to learn about the game, ask questions, and spend some time with Massively staff and readers.

Follow along after the jump to see what's scheduled for this week!

Monday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Illyriad
Illyriad is a browser-based city builder that can be played in five-minute chunks. Of course, you could just forget playing yourself and just watch Beau as he takes you through some of the basics! Bring some tea!
Tuesday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Second Life
Since Beau decided to look into Second Life a bit more deeply for his Rise and Shiny column, he's going to stream it on his normal Rise and Shiny day! Watch as he builds stuff, interacts with odd people dressed in odd ways, and explores the world of Second Life!
Wednesday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- A Mystical Land
Curious about this new browser-based MMO? Good, because Beau is about to educate you. Watch him as he farms, crafts, and kills things -- you won't regret it.
Thursday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Justin -- Lord of the Rings Online
This week Justin is switching over to Lord of the Rings Online for a relaxing look at the Shire with his baby Hobbit Warden. Don't miss all the action! Adventure! Intrigue! Pie-running! Ghost-hunting! Gorging! Yelling! And bear attacks!
Thursday, 9:00 p.m. EDT: Rubi -- Guild Wars
Massively Overpowered is ready to give Abaddon a smackdown. The price for this privilege is bidding farewell to the lovely region of Vabbi. Join us as we say goodbye to this oasis and head ever closer to the vortex!
Friday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Myst Online: Uru Live
Despite all the bumps in the road, Myst Online: Uru Live is still kicking. Well, sort of. Follow Beau as he tries to figure out some basic puzzles and explores the world created by Cyan!
Friday, 8:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Runes of Magic
Jeremy is launching the Runes of Magic event-guild on Artemis. If you want to find out about it and possibly join, check out the thread on the Massively forum (voting for the name is still going on). Then join Jeremy in-game on Friday to be the first in the guild, run some Easter events, and discuss ground-rules and future ideas for the guild.
