MV Guide: January 2-8, 2012

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.)

Follow along after the jump for the latest edition of MV Guide!

Monday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Kingdom of Loathing
Beau finally gets a chance to sit down and play through the beginning levels of Kingdom of Loathing. Check out this stream as he wanders around the world of... whatever the world is called in Kingdom of Loathing. He'll be making a brand-new character and taking his first steps in the world!
Monday, 8:00 p.m. EST: Mike -- EVE Online
After being embarrassingly podded in last week's stream, Mike sets out to teach NPC rats a thing or two about space combat. Also on the menu: agent missions, mining, crafting and just a bit of exploration.
Monday, 9:00 p.m. EST: Dylan -- Star Wars: The Old Republic
Revisit Star Wars: The Old Republic with high-definition coverage of PvP, crafting, flashpoints and more! See the voice-acted quests from the view of a Jedi Guardian and join us for conversation in chat!
Tuesday, 2:00 p.m. EST: Larry -- Star Wars: The Old Republic
Our Smuggler Topper (that's his name, not a description) has spent the better part of a week on Ord Mantell. It's time to get him off of this rock and finally find out what happened to Skavak and his ship. Follow us this week as we continue the adventures of our wily scoundrel and best-looking Twi'lek in the galaxy.
Tuesday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Glitch
Join Beau as he tries to complete at least some of the many quests he has to do in the world of giants! While he loves to explore and craft, questing is one of his passions. Also, they give him experience, and that's just awesome.
Wednesday, 11:00 a.m. EST: Richie -- Star Wars: The Old Republic
The Sith Empire has enlisted the help of an extremely skilled (and impressively large) Imperial Agent to infiltrate the palace of Nem'ro the Hutt. Tune in to watch Kil'bassa (and Richie) in action as they explore the dangerous planet of Hutta.
Wednesday, 1:00 p.m. EST: Blake -- Global Agenda
It's Lunchtime Livecast #3 as Blake talks more about PvP in Global Agenda. Today, he'll focus a little more on medic equipment choices. Does using Regeneration make you a total noob? Find out today!
Wednesday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Second Life
Join Beau as he explores the massive, beautiful mess that is Second Life. He'll be taking a tour of all of the official Linden areas on this day, but he'll be touring player-made areas soon after!
Wednesday, 8:00 p.m. EST: Adventure Mike -- Vanguard: Saga of Heroes
You requested it, and you shall receive. Adventure Mike will tackle Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. In the shadowy basement of SOE's archives sits a game that until just recently seemed to be all-but-forgotten. Tune in for an hour of discovery, excitement and exploration as we put Vanguard back into the spotlight.
Thursday, 5:00 a.m. EST: Dave "Psykopig" Desi -- DC Universe Online
Its time to jump back into the DC Universe with Psykopig. This week he will continue to level Dr. Drain and continue his conquest over Metropolis!
Thursday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- RuneScape
Watch Beau as he runs away from spiders, scorpions and skeletons and tries to complete the Lumbridge quest, set in this wonderful browser-based MMO! If you're lucky, you'll get to see him make much more progress than he's made in a while.
Thursday, 7:00 p.m. EST: Taryn -- All Points Bulletin: Reloaded
Join Taryn for her usual "Tboo Thursday" as she entices you with some enforcer-eliminating missions in APB's Financial District. Follow along as she levels up some contacts, runs over a few dirty cops, and tries to avoid getting arrested (/tempter tantrum) by her crime-fighting opponents. Also promised? Some self-inflicted grenade damage, exploding cars, and play-by-play commentary from Taryn and her fellow ruthless Crims.
Thursday, 9:00 p.m. EST: Karen and Jeremy -- EverQuest II
Join Karen and Jeremy as they search for more danger through EQII's player-generated content tool, the dungeon maker!
Friday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Milmo
Join Beau as he jumps, bounces and launches his way through some of the marvelous levels of Milmo, an action-based Unity MMO from Junebed. He's started a new character, so now is a great time to check out how the game plays as a newbie!
Friday, 9:00 p.m. EST: Karen and Jeremy -- EverQuest II
Help Jeremy and Karen decide what to do in EQII. Run some player-made dungeons? Level up their Beastlords? Check out Freeport? It's up to you!
