MV Guide: September 24 - 30, 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 -- Ultima Online
It's time to look back on Ultima Online again, this time in celebration of its anniversary! Beau jumps back in with his old character -- his very first MMO character ever -- along with some of the developer team. What will he find? Open-world adventure probably!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- EVE Online
It's time to suit up and head out for battle with Mike as he fits and loads a new ship and jumps into the black with his Blue Republic corpmates. Explosions will abound and Mike may indeed lose a ship (or three), but that's what PvP in EVE is all about. Well, that and jumping defenseless miners.


9:00am EDT: David "Psykopig" -- Guild Wars 2
Psykopig is joining the masses! Guild Wars 2! Join in as Psykopig takes us through character creation and the starter areas and he gives you his impressions, the only way he knows how! SQUEEE!

3:00 p.m. EDT: Dylan "GGraves" -- Torchlight II
Take an in-depth look at Torchlight II from Runic Games with a two-hour stream! This hack n' slash title features great combat and randomization that makes the genre so fun! Come join Massively in the chat room and discuss Torchlight II from the perspective of an ice-focused Embermage!

4:00 p.m. EDT: Dylan "GGraves" -- Torchlight II
Continuation of previous stream

5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Wurm Online
Join Beau and his buddy Brian as they show you how to build on a deed. They'll cover terraforming, basic project layout, and other building basics!

9:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- EverQuest II
Last week, Sleeper's Tomb was introduced as the first chapter of the upcoming Chains of Eternity expansion. Join MJ as she begins this new adventure. And because SOEmote was so much fun last week, MJ is going to employ it again this week!


5:00 p.m. Elisabeth -- Guild Wars 2
Having hit level 80, Elisabeth continues her quest for map completion. This time, we'll be checking out some of the goings-on in the Sylvari and Asura areas. Can she make it through Mad Goemm's Lab without embarrassing herself? Will she find some Quaggan? Will she give up her dreams of adventure and exploration in order to live with the Quaggan forever and ever?

7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- Torchlight II
Fireballs. Staves. Giant monsters. Mana. It's all here tonight as Mike charges through brand new action-MMO Torchlight II. Tune in and see what Runic Games has been cooking up, and to get an idea of how this title stacks up to Diablo III (you know you're curious!).

8:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Aion
With the anniversary celebration in full swing, MJ is going to jump in and experience some of the festivities. Perhaps an XP buff will actually motivate her to finally level some more as well!


9:00am EDT: David "Psykopig" -- Guild Wars 2
The Guild Wars 2 adventure continues! Tune in to watch Psykopig slash his way through this new, yet classic MMO that has the style of a Guild... at War... See what we did there? It's a special two-hour episode, so join in the fun!

10:00am EDT: David "Psykopig" -- Guild Wars 2
Continuation of previous stream

5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Allods Online
Beau is back again, this time with a new PC, to stream goblinball for all of those who have no idea what goblinball is. Join Beau, members of the dev team and some star players as they kick around a goblin. Ball. Thing.

8:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- The Secret World
MJ needs to earn all the AP and SP she can in order to start building up those mad rifle and blade skillz. So in between all the Kingsmouth missions she can handle, she's going to try her hand at some Fusang! Wait, PvP zone before skills? This ought to be interesting...

9:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Vanguard
This is IT! This is the dungeon crawl MJ has been warning you about. You know you want to come, so join up with her as she finds some like-minded compatriots to visit some tucked-away nest of evil. Want to influence the dungeon choice? Well shout out your favorite in the comments below!


10:00 a.m. EDT: Richie -- Guild Wars 2
Richie is back for more Guild Wars 2 action in this two-hour livestream show. He will continue to level up his norn in his quest to save Tyria from the elder dragons. He's on the Blackgate server and if you find him in-game you can join him on his perilous mission!

11:00 a.m. EDT: Richie -- Guild Wars 2
Continuation of the previous stream.

6:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- Guild Wars 2
In a continuation of the impromptu Guild Wars 2 Day on Massively TV, MJ makes good on her pledge to start an alt Asura. Will this introductory zone be able to entice her away from her Sylvari? And more importantly, will there be a jumping puzzle she can actually complete?!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike - Tribes: Ascend
Mike jetpacks face-first into the hectic action of free-to-play shooter Tribes: Ascend. We can't promise that he's good, we can't promise that he'll win, but we can promise mortar shells by the dozen. Check out the stream and get a glimpse of this awesome MMOFPS in action.


9:00am EDT: David "Psykopig" -- The Secret World
The Massively Dragon adventure continues! The Secret World is a big place and Psykopig is here to explore it all! Tune in to see all the slashing action you can handle! Or all the slashing action you CAN'T handle! We are yet to decide.
