MV Guide: July 30 - August 5, 2012

Shawn Schuster

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

Every week, the Massively Stream Team 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 each week, so you'll find a variety of titles to watch. During our streamed events, you can participate in the live chat, ask questions to learn about the game, or 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, and let us know if there's a specific game you'd like to see streamed next week!


5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Face of Mankind
Beau's returning back to Face of Mankind to check out what has changed over the last two years. Here's hoping that he doesn't get killed that much. Check it out if you've never seen this game before!

6:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Xsyon
Refusing to be deterred by the very ill-timed tornadoes last week, MJ will check out the undead-infested landscape of Lake Tahoe this week even if it kills her! And, it most likely will (in game, at least). Hopefully not too many manage to take a bite out of her while she checks out some abandoned areas and sees what she can grab from random baskets.

8:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- EVE Online
Mike returns to the stream this week with more low-sec carnage. Or maybe a mining op? Who knows!? Join Mike as he storms into EVE's inky black space and looks for fame, fights and fortune amid the smoldering wrecks of noob ships. Or, you know, mines or whatever. The only promise is that there will be explosions!

9:00 p.m. EDT: Richie -- SMITE
Richie is getting better at SMITE and the regular viewers have seen the progress. He's gone from being a complete drain on his teammates to a moderate drain on his teammates. He's even seen a reduction in the number of four letter words aimed at his direction in chat. The internet is so kind. Join Richie for some more hot deity on deity combat!


9:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- EverQuest II
Needing some fresh air after being cooped up in the tomb for the Bloodline Chronicles so long, this week's EverQuest Two-sday will find MJ prowling the desert sands in search of treasure and glory! Come join her for this beach excursion. Of course, this beach is littered with enormous spiders...


7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- World of Tanks
Mike is getting better at World of Tanks, which means he's only slightly capable of not getting blown up seconds into a match. He's also getting better tanks, which means his successes are more interesting and his failures much more expensive. Such is the life of a tank captain. Commander? Anyway, tune in and check out what this cool armor-based F2P MMO has to offer (hint: it's tanks).


5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Glitch
It's time to check back in on Glitch. Want a tour of Beau's new home? Haven't gotten into the beta and need to see what's been happening? This is the perfect stream for you!

7:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- The Secret World
Being a completionist in The Secret World is not as much about OCD taking over as it is about not missing out on bits of the world! As much as some people like to race through, MJ is seriously taking her time and enjoying each tiny bit of story she comes across. Did you know there are 59 quests to complete in Kingsmouth, including one in an old toilet? Join in as MJ covers some of the lesser known quests that tend to be missed.

8:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Vanguard
MJ finally renamed her disciple that has been locked away since the last server merge (you know how she is about decisions!), so she's excited to jump in and shake the dust off a slightly higher-level kung-fu healer. And a few more levels means a few more skills to show off! Join up with MJ as she starts the adventure to obtaining a key to Lord Tsang's Tomb.


5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Ryzom
Beau continues working his way off of the newbie island of Silan. Will he make it to the mainland? Let's hope so. If not, he'll probably just jump over there anyway!

7:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Fallen Earth
Start the work week with one apocalypse, end the work week with another -- sounds fitting doesn't it? By request, MJ is heading back into the ravaged wilds of the Grand Canyon where mutant chickens roam free. Join her as she hoofs it across the barren land to explore new areas likely to lead to her death. Repeatedly.

9:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Vanguard
Another day, another class, race and starting zone. The SOE team are slowly changing and adding things to the world and starting areas. Whether you're new or a veteran, you can watch Jeremy play the newbie experience and look for any changes.


9:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Everquest II
Qeynos Rises is live and ready to be explored. Jeremy's going to run around the newly revamped city of Qeynos as well as check out the new level-agnostics for player-made dungeons. Level-agnostics allow you to take your main character into player dungeons, whether solo or with a team.
