Cheer up, grumpy! It's time for another Massively TV recap! Look, if you promise to smile, I'll throw in an extra stream or two... but only this once. Wait, you don't have any idea what I am talking about? This is the first time you have taken a moment to check out this wonderful series? Allow me to explain: Each week I take some of the best and brightest livestreams from our famed livestream channel, package them up after the cut below, and serve them to you hot and fresh. All you have to do is promise to bookmark our Massively TV guide so you won't miss another stream! Got it? OK, so let's check out what I have for you this week.

Richie killed a bunch of people in SMITE, Blake killed a bunch of people in Star Wars: The Old Republic PvP, Mike killed himself in EVE Online and World of Tanks, MJ killed a bunch of NPCs in The Secret World, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes and EverQuest II, and I blew through a series of dungeons while gathering massive amounts of loot in Darkblood Online. If killing and looting is your business, this week's recap could serve as your newsletter.

SMITE banner
Richie was all set to play some RaiderZ this week, but access to the closed beta was restricted during his timeslot. So he pulled an audible and loaded up some SMITE. The devs have added some new gods in this third-person MOBA, but did Richie choose any of them? Nah, he stuck to what he knows best: ganking people from the jungle with the four-armed Kali. Did he help propel his team to victory, or was he a drain on his mates' momentum by feeding the other team? Watch the show to find out.

SWTOR banner
Blake got down to business this week in Lunchtime Livecast #27 with max-level PvP on a character you've never seen before... his Trooper! He gives you the ins and outs on PvP from the perspective of a DPS Vanguard, including tips on how you can win Huttball in a pick-up group.

EVE Online banner
This week on the EVE Online stream, Mike took no-skill character Cannonball Rum into the depths of low-sec space to see how long she could last before being blown to smithereens by pirates. Since he went to Delve, where thousands of ships are currently exploding each week, things got ugly, fast. BOOM!

World of Tanks banner
Mike once again loaded up his artillery shells and stormed the battlefields of World of Tanks' 7.5 patch. The result? Explosions, chaos, embarrassing defeats, and triumphant victories. Tune in to see how one man can triumph despite a complete lack of video game skill or intuition.

The Secret World banner
Traveling with a teenaged ticking timebomb is definitely an experience, and MJ is all about new experiences. So escorting Carter down into the basement of Innsmouth Academy would be a blast, right? Oh, and a blast it was! Forget about the familiars; can MJ survive the girl's powers? Watch and see.

Vanguard banner
Celebrating the official free-to-play-launch day, MJ jumped into the world of Telon to show off the new Station Cash store and poke around a bit. What she found was a very lively and helpful region chat welcoming and assisting all the new folks who were giving Vanguard a spin. The stream ended with MJ discovering a set of beautiful floating islands that are apparently home to level 10 content and a dungeon of some kind. Too bad she couldn't figure out a way inside... this time!

EverQuest II banner
At viewers' requests, MJ opted not to mentor down for the next steps in The Bloodline Chronicles questline in order to blow through the-dungeon-we-have-already-seen-a-bunch! The good news is The Tombs of Night was at least filled with some different mobs this time, allowing MJ to electrocute vampires instead of Grinnin. After all, who doesn't like torching a few vampires?

Darkblood Online banner
Last and certainly not least, I jumped into Darkblood Online, a fantastic side-scroller from Outspark. If you like massive explosions, tons of enemies, dungeon crawling, and loot, then Darkblood Online might be a great game for you. If you're too scared to download a free title before seeing it in action, watch this stream. Then download the game.
