Previously on MV TV: The week of July 28th


You know what time it is? That's right: It's time for me to heckle you for missing out on some of our awesome streams! Sure, you might have been at work, or perhaps you visited that strange, outer world people call "real life," but that's no excuse! Still, I've got your back. I gathered some of the best moments from the past week of livestreaming, tied them up with a bow, and set them under that little line down there. All you have to do is click the "continue reading" and BAM! All of the presents are yours. Share with your sister. Oh, and bookmark the livestream guide on your little browser there so you won't ever miss a stream again.

What went on this week? Well, we started off with Richie doing some sort of multi-armed attack in SMITE and then switching to a character who shares my name. (That must have given him extra points.) Next up we had MJ with all of her streaming glory. She dived into some Xsyon, the indie post-apocalyptic world where giant dogs tend to bite your ears off. Next she visited Tinkerfest in EverQuest II, escorted somebody's trunk into a toilet (don't ask me) in The Secret World, and rounded her week off with a bit of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. Speaking of Vanguard, I wonder if you heard about the free-to-play release date. No? Well then click here and read all about it. I finished things off with a Rise and Shiny revisit to good old Face of Mankind. Yes, I get shot.

Read that Vanguard article after you watch these videos. Your Aunt Beau went through all that trouble to put them together for you, so go upstairs right now and try them on!

This week, Richie played two thrilling matches of SMITE. During the first game, he played as four-armed Kali and did some jungling, then switched to the master of water, He Bo, for match number two. He tried to reel in his aggressiveness for these matches and had a much more disciplined playstyle. Did the cautiousness pay off, or did he end up with more embarrassing, publicly broadcast losses? Watch the shows to find out.

So what do revenants have that MJ doesn't? Pants! That's right: In the battle of MJ vs. the undead, MJ scored a big fat goose egg and lost her shoes and pants in the process. How did she fare against the pack of wild dogs? Let's just say it's a good thing the critters didn't have good fashion sense. Hearing a rustle in the grass has never been so intense as when wandering around abandoned tribal lands in Xsyon.

Shinies, shinies, everywhere! MJ almost needed an intervention to move on from showing off Tinkerfest with all its shiny cogs glowing so seductively on the ground! But move on she did, to tour the beaches of Sinking Sands and mingle a bit with the wildlife (meaning chop up those spiders, of course!). And what desert adventure is complete without a magic carpet ride to the genies?

If you found some floating thing stuck in a toilet, would you reach in and help it get free? MJ did it for the AP! And that's not all; she also handled someone's trunk! And check out her short career as an escort. Now, now, don't give us that look. MJ just toured some lesser-known quests in Kingsmouth and showed off the new one added with update #1. And if you haven't had the chance to check out The Secret World's free weekend yet, go ahead and get a peek while you download the client to try it for yourself! Despite visiting Kingsmouth right at the height of free-mania, MJ wasn't tripping over newbs and found the game still running smooth.

You might not technically need a key to visit Lord Tsang's Tomb, but it sure beats knocking! This week, MJ and group tackled the first part of the access quest for this lower-level dungeon on the isle of Kojan. Watch as the tank openly admits to learning to pull from MJ's streams! Oh, the horror!

Face of Mankind banner
I had so much fun streaming Face of Mankind last week that I decided to give it a third, charming Rise and Shiny treatment. On my first day back in the game, I found myself surrounded by players and stunned by police with warrants issued on my name. In other words, a typical day in Face of Mankind.

Did you miss Massively TV last week? Are you too busy to dig through a week's worth of video to get to the highlights? Never fear! We've done the work for you right here in Previously on MV TV, a roundup of epic battles, tragic deaths, and juicy outtakes from last week's livestreams.
