MV Guide: October 10-16, 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, 1:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Lord of the Rings Online
Jeremy hasn't gotten very far in Lord of the Rings Online, but he likes what he's been seeing. Join (help) him as he does some good old-fashioned questing.
Tuesday, 5:30 p.m. EDT: Patrick -- Champions Online
Patrick rocks into the first part of the Vibora Bay Crisis! The initial content of the Revelations expansion starts with a bang as our hero begins work for the mysterious Valerian Scarlet.
Tuesday, 7:00 p.m. EDT: Brandon -- Star Trek Online
Hang out with Brandon for an afternoon full of Star Trek Online as he continues showing off the new F2P test server. 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.
Tuesday, 9:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Tales of Fantasy
Jeremy found Tales of Fantasy on one of his regular excursions to dig up new MMOs. Join him as he takes a look at some of the oddly familiar features this distinctively Asian F2P MMO has.
Wednesday, 1:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Perfect World International
Jeremy will be diving into another F2P in order to critique features and gameplay. Perfect World International is a beautiful game, and Jeremy will show you what he likes.
Thursday, 3:00 p.m. EDT: Justin -- Lord of the Rings Online: Rise of Isengard
Justin's adventures through Rise of Isengard continue. What will happen this week? What cliffs will he fall off of? What killer platypi will he face? Will he finally give Saruman the wedgie he oh-so-deserves? Find out! (Special Live Musical Edition)
Thursday, 8:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- EVE Online
Jeremy can't promise you fireworks in space as multitudes of ships wage interstellar war, but he can bring you a fairly newbish experience to those who've never played EVE Online before.
Friday, 6:00 p.m. EDT: Brendan -- Path of Exile (NSFW)
In the second Not So Massively livestream, Brendan is joined by Matt Daniel and Patrick Mackey to play Path of Exile, an upcoming Diablo-style dungeon crawler that's still in beta. Grinding Gear Games has graciously given Brendan permission to stream the beta, so if you've been following Path of Exile or you're a fan of Diablo-style games, tune in to see what the game is all about.
Friday, 8:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Runes of Magic
Jeremy really, really, really wants to continue streaming Runes of Magic, despite its recent bout of instability. Join him as he tries to keep you in the game and kill lots of stuff -- preferably in a dungeon.
Sunday, 3:00 p.m. 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. And feel free to join in the chatroom to ask your questions about the game. If you happen to have a MTGO account, email him for a friendly duel!
