MV Guide: February 27 - March 4, 2012

Shawn Schuster

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 to see what's on this week's schedule!

Monday, 1:00 p.m. EST: Karen and Jeremy -- Allods Online
Karen and Jeremy return to the Astral for a tour with the Allods team. If you've never seen Astral ships or travel, you'll definitely want to check this out!
Monday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Seven Souls Online
Rise and Shiny this week will feature Seven Souls Online, a new action MMO brought to us by NEOWIZ Games. Will Beau get his lights punched out as he ventures into the game for the first time? Probably. But then again, that's what he gets paid for.
Monday, 8:00 p.m. EST: Mike -- EVE Online
Mike is back in EVE Online again with Spaceguy Rotsuda, the crowd-sourced character built by the Massively audience. Tune in as he uses absurdly expensive ammunition to down low-level foes and completes a few agent missions along the way.
Tuesday, 2:00 p.m. EST: Larry -- Star Wars: The Old Republic
First Risha has us running errands on Nar Shaddaa, and now we are running errands for a Hutt, too. When did we turn into a messenger boy? Follow Topper's adventures on the gangster moon this Tuesday. Maybe we will find out more about the Wookiee Bowdaar.
Tuesday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Glitch
Check out this Glitch Tuesday as Beau shows off everything about gardening. It is spring, after all, so why not do a full week of gardening tips? Glitch features a robust farming system, so let's check it out!

Last week, Richie successfully thwarted the Great Destroyer and finished the Eye of the North expansion. This week he endeavors to take on part three of the Winds of Change content. Will he finally expose the Ministry of Purity for the self-righteous scumbags they are? Watch the show to find out!

Wednesday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Second Life
This week on Second Life Wednesday, Beau will be looking into creating and maintaining a garden. He'll be constructing a garden spot and laying down flowers and maybe a tree or two. Join him and give him some advice!
Wednesday, 7:00pm EST: Mike --RIFT

Friday, 3:00 p.m. EST: Jeremy -- Fallen Earth

Friday, 5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Free Realms
Grab Bag Friday is all about spring farming! What better game to pull up some weeds in than Free Realms? Join Beau as he spends the hour planting, pulling, cropping and selling goods. Careful, you might get your hands dirty.

Saturday, 10:00 p.m. EST: James "Adventure Mike" -- Guild Wars
Mike and Shannon will be continuing their two-hour Guild Wars extravaganza. At this point, the second half of this special Guild Wars event finds Mike and Shannon struggling to get ahead and finish off the Prophecies campaign. Can they succeed? Or will Mike continue to hide into a corner while Shannon does all of the heavy lifting (literally)? Check out both halves of this special event and bring your adult beverages. It's Saturday night, after all!
Sunday, 1:00 p.m. EST: Blake -- Global Agenda
Blake is back after a one-week hiatus! Lunchtime Livecast #10 is better than ever, as Blake heads into a PvE mission for the first time on his new Robotic. Is he doomed to fail, or can he master his new abilities and support his team to victory?
