MV Guide: August 15-21, 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 titles to take a look at. During livestream events, you can participate in the live chat, ask questions to learn about the game, and simply spend some time with Massively staff and readers. (Of course, livestream events are subject to the whims of outside forces like server-side gremlins once in a while.)

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

Monday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Gunshine
Ah, what a game. Join Beau as he blasts and splats his way through the seedy underbelly of this great Flash-based game. Want to see a lot of bullets flying? You got it.
Tuesday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Nadirim
How Beau missed Nadirim's entry to open beta, he'll never know. Join him as he explores this brand-new browser-based MMO set in a sandy, exotic world for this week's Rise and Shiny.
Tuesday, 6:30 p.m. EDT: Patrick -- Champions Online
After defeating Demoiselle Nocturne in Issue 4, our intrepid hero braves the forgotten tower of the Kings of Edom in order to rescue the UNTIL survivors. However, an unseen force has dark plans for our hero. Join Patrick as he explores the final chapters of Champions Online's Aftershock.
Wednesday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Order and Chaos Online
Now that Order and Chaos Online is playable through the browser, Beau has decided to give it a second look. Join him as he explores the lands of Azero... I mean, the lands of Order and Chaos Online.
Thursday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Drakensang Online
What a beauty this one is! Check out this livestream of the brand-new browser-based action game. Beau promises a lot of chopping, murdering, killing and looting. Yes, he said looting!
Thursday, 8:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- World of Warcraft
One of Jeremy's favorite things to do in MMOs is explore. He'll be trekking across the vast expanse of Azeroth, past friend and foe alike, to discover the lonely, forgotten, and far-away lands that get no love but should. So mount up! If you're on Gnomeregan, join Jeremy in-game and on the livestream as he sets off for forgotten shores.
Friday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Dark Orbit
If you took EVE Online and mated it with Asteroids, you'd get Dark Orbit. Check out Beau's killer instincts as he flies his Goliath around, pelting people and NPCs with laser bolts! PEW PEW!
