MV Guide: November 14-20, 2011

Rubi Bayer, @@rubi_

MV Guide is a weekly rundown of the MMO gaming events planned on Massively TV.

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 our streamed 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, streaming is subject to the whims of outside forces like server-side gremlins once in a while.)

We've got some exciting MV TV news this week: We're changing the channel! We've moved to Twitch TV, and we think you're going to love the new look. You can still access the old livestream archives at our channel, but beginning today, everything new will be shown and saved on our Twitch TV channel.

Ready to see what's on MV TV this week? Follow along after the jump and take a look!

Monday, 1:00 p.m. EST: Karen -- Project Exonaut
Join Karen as she showcases this fast-paced kids game from Cartoon Network. If you're looking for a family-friendly game that has the feel of Global Agenda or Firefall (minus the harsh chat), you'll want to check this one out. She'll provide a more in-depth write up as part of her MMO Family column this week.
Monday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Evony
Beau figured it was time someone actually discussed the gameplay of this browser-based MMORTS. Luckily for the viewers, he is not taking a tour of the marketing department and is instead attempting to conquer the entire world while sipping hot tea. It's time for him to take a second look at the game. (It's sort of his job.) Come check it out, my lord!
Tuesday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- EverQuest
What's that sound? The familiar song from so many years ago? Yep, Beau is going to switch out his Tuesday through Friday adventures and try something old occasionally. (Don't worry; next week he'll be back to playing something you've never heard of.) It's time to make a new EverQuest character and see how the newbie experience plays.
Tuesday, 6:30 p.m. EST: Patrick -- Champions Online
Patrick explores a new character concept and explains freeform character customization. If you've ever wanted an in-depth tutorial on freeform character creation, tune in and ask questions!
Tuesday, 8:30 p.m. EST: Jeremy - Runes of Magic
Watch Jeremy kill stuff in new super-ultra-mega strat-o-color. Jeremy will be showing off Tempest Heights and Dreamland. Both of these instanced areas throw waves of increasingly tougher mobs at you. The longer you can hold out, the more shinies you can collect. Tempest is a shared instance, but Dreamland needs a party. If you'd like to team with Jeremy, join him on Artemis at Forsaken Abbey.
Wednesday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- EverQuest
So by this point Beau has rolled his new toon and is rolling around Norrath. Don't let him down; come join him in the chat room and call him a noob! If you're lucky, he'll roll on his original character from the year 2000! If you're unlucky, he'll just ask a lot of questions.
Thursday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- EverQuest
Ouch, that DING sound is painful. Of course, it is very possible that at this point in the week Beau has not even leveled a single time while streaming. Maybe if you join him in the chatroom and tell him how handsome he is?
Thursday, 9:00 p.m. EST: Karen and Jeremy -- Global Agenda
Jeremy and Karen have been on a shooter binge of late, and they continue the streak this week by checking out Global Agenda. Last week, they survived the apocaplyse, but have they finally met their match? Tune in to see if Jeremy and Karen can blast their way out of trouble, and avoid flying into cliffs.
Friday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- EverQuest
Beau finishes up his newbie streaming week with EverQuest on this day. If he's lucky, he'll have made a great character to keep for all of time. If he's feeling pretty much the same as always, he'll just pop back into the game occasionally to count his vet rewards. Which will it be? Tune in to find out!
Friday 7:00 p.m. EST: Brendan -- League of Legends (NSFW)
n this week's Not So Massively livestream, Brendan takes a second stab at League of Legends' Dominion game mode and shows off adorable damage-dealing champion Annie.
Friday, 9:00 p.m. EST: Jeremy and Karen -- Vanguard
Karen returns to Telon after a long hiatus and takes Jeremy on a tour of her favorite stomping grounds. By sea or by air, they'll tour Telon, and Karen will share some of her best (and worst) memories of a game that's still dear to her heart.
Saturday 6:00 p.m. EST: Brendan -- RIFT
As a follow-up to Brendan's first look at the Guardian starting area in RIFT, this week he's joined by Tina Lauro from Gamergaia to explore the city and low-level areas after the tutorial.
