MV Guide: October 3-9, 2011

Rubi Bayer, @@rubi_

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 on this week's schedule!

Monday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Glitch
Beau has been waiting for a long time to finally do an official write-up of Glitch, and here comes the opportunity! Watch him as he explores the world of giants on today's livestream. Monday is the day he streams his Rise and Shiny game, so expect him to be playing all week. You can add him in game; his name is Beau!
Tuesday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MilMo
It's about time that Beau sat down and showed off many of the zany features of MilMo, one of his favorite browser-based games. Honestly, this is just a great chance for him to get caught up on his collections and quests; the rest of the week he will be exploring and platforming his way straight into your heart!
Tuesday, 6:30 p.m. EDT: Patrick -- Champions Online
King of the Hill! Patrick goes back into PvP, focusing this week on the new King of the Hill gametype. Level 40 PvP with a level 36 character and level 20 gear? No problem!
Tuesday, 10 p.m. EDT: Brandon -- Star Trek Online
Hang out with Brandon for an evening full of Star Trek Online as he shows off the new F2P test server. Also, feel free to join in on the chat through the Livestream site and give him requests on what you would like to see. If you happen to be around in-game and want to team up with him, send an invite to @bfelczer.
Wednesday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MilMo
More MilMo? Why, yes! Today Beau is going to be taking a deeper look into customization, so bring plenty of cash and join him in game or just sit back and watch him blow a bunch of money in the cash shop! Woot, going broke!
Thursday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Justin -- Lord of the Rings Online: Rise of Isengard
Join Justin on his quest to die painfully, memorably, and often as he explores the virgin territories of Rise of Isengard. Warning: Singing can and most definitely will happen. Justin takes requests, including "Oh for the love of all that is holy, please shut up!"
Thursday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MilMo
Today in MilMo Beau will be bashing the heck out of monsters in the hopes of destroying them all! (He will also settle for some nice loot.) Watch as he chooses his weapon and destroys everything in his path!
Friday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Brendan -- Heroes of Newerth
In his first Not So Massively livestream, Brendan will play a few games of Heroes of Newerth, one of the first DotA remakes to succeed in the newly emerging MOBA genre. Tune in to laugh as he fails at last-hitting, loses his lane, buys the wrong items, and gets repeatedly killed for an hour of almost sadistic entertainment.
Friday, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- MilMo
To close out the week, Beau is going to try his hardest to find every single last coin on the entire face of the planet that MilMo resides upon. If not, he'll be OK with finishing one or two collections while you watch!
Saturday, 6:00 p.m. EDT: Brendan -- RIFT (NSFW)
Brendan will be joined by his two Irish housemates, a few of their co-workers from gaming website GamerGaia, and some of the Massively crew for Massively's first after-hours livestream. Expect copious amounts of swearing and funny accents as Brendan and friends battle their way through the early levels of RIFT.
Sunday, noon EDT: Brandon -- Magic: The Gathering Online
Tune in as we continue our journey through The Multiverse of Magic: The Gathering Online. Watch as Brandon continues PvPing against other players from around the world who unleash their own spells they have gathered along their journey. Feel free to join in the chatroom to ask your questions about the game. And if you happen to have a MTGO account, email him for a friendly duel!
