The Stream Team: October 29 - November 4, 2012

MJ Guthrie

Ahhh, nothing like coming home after a long stay in Vegas. No, really! At home, there is nothing to keep you from watching all of your favorite streamed games on Massively TV. In Vegas, all those crazy lights and karaoke bars are quite the distraction! And don't forget imbibing dwarves.

So now that the latest gaming convention is over, you should all be settled at home, ready for the next week of streams. And here is what The Stream Team has lined up for you, live and in virtual person this week! Mark your calendars, and don't forget to offer your two cents (if you have any left after Vegas) in the poll at the end.

5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Asheron's Call
It looks like this old-school MMO is having an anniversary, so what better way to celebrate it than by taking a fresh look at the game? Join Beau and members of the Asheron's Call dev team as they explore the game once more!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- EVE Online

It's back to PvP this week as Mike hops into his snipe-fitted frigate and sets out with his Blue Republic buddies in the hopes of squashing a few Red Federation ships. Can Mike hold his own in intense space combat, or will he be reduced to smoldering scrap metal?

3:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- EverQuest II
EverQuest Two-sday returns, but at a special new time! Come listen to MJ's recounting of the SOE Live experience as she tries to catch up on Night of the Dead events in Norrath.

5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Wurm Online
Beau is back in Wurm on the Deliverance server to hang out with his buddy Faeran of the Puzzles deed. This time around they are looking at farming, planting, and all things croppy. If you've ever wondered how to get a green thumb in this massive sandbox MMO, watch and learn.

1:00 p.m. & 2:00 p.m. EDT: MJ -- The Secret World
Who could miss Halloween in the most Halloween of games? Not MJ! Prowl around with her and help her solve the special Halloween investigation mission in just two-hours.

7:00 p.m. EDT: Mike -- Pirate101
Mike switches from space piracy to actual piracy when he hops into Pirate101, the family-friendly MMO from KingsIsle Entertainment. Tune in to see what the game has to offer grown-ups and kids alike.

8:00 a.m. EDT: David "Psykopig" Desi -- Guild Wars 2
It's Pig Wars 2... We mean Guild Wars 2 time again this Thursday! Can Psykopig overcome his failures at the Engineer class? Join in the fun as Pig dives deep into the missions of the Sylvari and finds out what really makes a tree tick, this week IN THE STY!

2:15 p.m. EDT: Blake -- SMITE
The Lunchtime Livecast is back for its 39th edition, and Blake is back in Hi-Rez's third-person MOBA SMITE. He'll cover the latest news, notes, and updates on the game and even play a few matches! Maybe he'll even figure out a way to not lose on camera this week.

5:00 p.m. EDT: Beau -- Allods Online

There's a brand-new skirmish coming to Allods Online: Summerhold. Join Beau and members of the Allods dev team as they work their way through this epic new vehicle-based challenge. Feel free to hoot and holler from the chat room, Beau could use the encouragement!

10:00 a.m. & 11 a.m. EDT: Richie -- Guild Wars 2
Once again Richie will be heading to Tyria to do battle with the evil forces of Zhaitan. Will he continue to explore the high-level zones of Orr? Will he finish up his personal story? Will he engage other server populations in world vs. world? Or will he run a dungeon with some of the viewers? You'll have to tune into the two-hour show to find out because it's so secret that even Richie doesn't know yet!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Vanguard
It's still grim in Vanguard and the ghouls are still about, but Jeremy wants to do some good, old-fashioned questing. His trusty dwarf Rogue, Abernacky Anvilslayer, is ready to start trying out some cash-shop items, too.

8:00 a.m. EDT: David "Psykopig" Desi -- The Secret World
How secret is secret? This secret! Psykopig's Saturday Secret World Show is back this week and he aims to blow your mind! Tune in to see all the slashing, all the questing, and all the Savage Coast you can handle!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Jeremy -- Ryzom
Jeremy journeys to a world where resource collection requires prospecting before you can harvest. Take a trip with him to an MMO that emphasizes the RPG and a place where the virtual world is alive.

Having some Vegas withdrawals? Take a chance on a new game today! MMO gambling might just pay off big. You will never know unless you try.

Anyone in Vegas would agree that a live performance is the best, but that can't always happen. So for those who couldn't make these livestream debuts, we have archived versions of all your favorite Stream Team episodes ready when you are.

Slot machines. Roulette. Poker. You can't seem to visit a hotel, airport, or even a gas station without some form of gambling when visiting Las Vegas. You might even find a slot machine in the loo! And one look at the crowds and tour buses will tell you -- plenty of people find gambling fun. But you can't stay in Vegas indefinitely, so here's your question this week: Should what's in Vegas stay in Vegas (except for your money, of course!), or would you like to see some games of chance in your favorite MMO? And if you could have Vegas-style gaming, which would you prefer?%Poll-78557%
Watching the Massively Stream Team play video games is the next best thing to playing them yourself! Join us every Monday morning for MJ's guide to this week's livestream schedule, classic stream reruns from last week, and all the best outtakes and ephemera.
