MV Guide: September 17 - 23, 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 -- IMVU
Beau's always yapping his jaws about exploring new and interesting games, so this time he's going to put his money where his mouth is and try out IMVU, a social game that looks... interesting. Join him!

6:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- The Secret World
You spoke, MJ listened. So now she is making an Illuminati -- the one faction she has never touched or even looked sideways at! Since we have seen the opening sequence of every other class, join MJ as she starts right from the beginning with that first knock on the door. Then it becomes a fast and furious run through the streets of New York! And so the Choose My Adventure Live saga begins...

7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- EVE Online
It's been 100-some-odd days since Mike started training to mine ice, and tonight is finally the night it all comes together. Join Mike as he takes his Mackinaw out on its cardinal voyage to harvest some delicious high-sec resources, and hopes desperately to avoid being destroyed by angry pirates. Mellow playlists encouraged.


9:00 a.m. EDT: David "Psykopig" -- Fallen Earth
After many weeks of playing games and searching, Psykopig is finally returning to one of his favourites! Fallen Earth is back this Tuesday and it's going to be full of dance-tastic action! Check it out!

9:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- EverQuest II
Wonder what all the hoopla is about SOEmote? Well, come take a look as MJ demonstrates this feature on EverQuest Two-sday. In between winks and growls, she'll even dive into more Splitpaw Saga. Maybe this time she will actually finish that heroic arena!


10:00 a.m. EDT: Richie -- Guild Wars 2
The internet is for norn! If you're a Guild Wars 2 fan (or curious about the game) check out Richie's show as he continues to level up his warrior in an attempt to save Tyria from the clutches of the elder dragons.

5:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Guild Wars 2
OK, OK, so blasting things with the four elements is a great and wonderful thing! But it's now or never -- MJ is going to succumb to the pressure and check out an alt before she's totally sucked into the Elementalist. Wonders never cease, right? This time she's going to take on the form of an Asura. But will she choose Mesmer? Thief? Ranger? You'll have to watch and see.

7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- Drakensang Online
Drakensang Online! It's back! On the stream, that is. And Mike's ready to head back into the swamp, toss off a few lightning bolts, and cause as much trouble as possible. Tune in and see what he can do with a free-to-play, browser-based game.


9:00 a.m. EDT: David "Psykopig" -- Global Agenda
The agenda is clear! Psykopig is here to shoot things and globalise the agenda! That's not even a thing, but Psykopig is gonna MAKE it a thing! Played the game before? Tune in and help Psykopig understand the game as he tries it out for the first time! This is the 2-hour special this week so get locked in!

10:00 a.m. EDT: David "Psykopig" -- Global Agenda
Continuation of previous stream.

8:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Vanguard
It's time for a rematch! Thanks to the amazing sleuthing abilities of folks last week, MJ learned enough about that mysterious level 10 dungeon that she is confident she will win this time. *flex* So come join her and take on The Arks of Harmony together!

9:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- City of Heroes
Fans gather to continue to show solidarity and support for City of Heroes, this time with a mass Positron's Task Force run. Join MJ as she chronicles this coordinated effort.


10:00 a.m. EDT: Richie -- Guild Wars 2
There once was a norn from Hoelbrak.
Who was hungry and searched for a snack.
He found some beef stew.
That he helped himself to,
Until the chef caught him and gave him a smack!
Join Richie for his Guild Wars 2 show and more non-dirty limericks.

5:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Aion
Last week, MJ scoured the upper and lower decks of Steel Rake. This time, she wants to check out how different the mid level is now that it's a solo zone. And if that gets done lickity-split, there will be time to poke around and see if NCsoft has anything planned for the anniversary this week!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- World of Tanks
Explosions! Treads! Turrets! More things of that nature! It's World of Tanks, it's free-to-play, and it's awesome. But you don't have to take our word for it -- tune in and see it first hand as Mike dishes out some armor-plated justice.


9:00 a.m. EDT: David "Psykopig" -- The Secret World
The Massively Dragon is back again this Saturday! The Savage Coast is a nasty place with heaps more to discover. Tune in this Saturday to see all the chaos flinging, wolverine-like slashing action!

11:00 a.m. EDT: Blake Cripps -- Star Wars: The Old Republic
Blake brings the galaxy far, far away right into your living room on Saturday... and just in time for lunch! Blake continues PvP and PvE action on the Jedi Consular... plus a little space combat! It's all coming up in this week's Lunchtime Livecast!
