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, 1:00 p.m. EDT: Shawn -- A Tale in the Desert
Join Massively's Editor-in-Chief Shawn Schuster as he takes you through his favorite MMOs. 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 episode, Shawn will explore eGenesis' A Tale in the Desert V. As a sandbox and crafting enthusiast, Shawn has been meaning to check this game out for years, as recommended by so many readers. Now you get to go along for the ride as he starts his journey!
Monday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Pocket Legends
You've heard about this "World of Warcraft in your pocket" for a while. Now watch as Beau plays it for you on camera! Wish him luck and be sure to comment on how clean his fingernails are while he plays.
Tuesday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Ashen Empires
Since Beau will be jamming on this old-school MMO, he will be streaming it on the usual Rise and Shiny day. He has no idea what he is getting into, so maybe you can join him in the chat and give him some pointers!
Wednesday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Atmosphir
Sure, it's not a "true" MMO yet, but it does have multiplayer and some of the coolest tools for creating your own levels and adventures. Come watch as Beau guides you through some basics of building. Then, if you're lucky, you can join him in his brand-new adventure -- and maybe shoot him in the process!
Friday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Aerrevan
Aerrevan has officially launched, so check out Beau's stream as he explores this very indie fantasy world. Take it easy on him, and the game, because it is not only fresh out of beta but also made by a small team.
Friday, 8:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Runes of Magic
Jeremy returns to the frozen landscape of Ystra Highlands to adventure through Mystic Altar. The last livestream was a bit rocky and turned into "how to get attuned for Mystic Altar," but this time around Jeremy actually goes inside!
