The Stream Team: Seis de Mayo edition, May 6 - 12, 2013

MJ Guthrie

You have to agree, May is one month that's full of holidays. The first week alone contains May Day, (unofficial) Star Wars Day, and Cinco de Mayo. But the party doesn't stop there! Following quickly on the heels of these is perhaps one you are less familiar with: Seis de Mayo.

Not unlike its cousin the day before, Seis de Mayo is a day of celebration; however, this celebration centers on freedom from boredom via visual entertainment. No, really! And to commemorate the day, we're releasing an all-new Massively TV schedule, giving you the means to celebrate the whole week through with The Stream Team. If you can't celebrate live, just tune into a rerun and party whenever.

Well, even if you don't believe us, you can still commemorate the occasion with us. Just check out the past the cut for a heaping helping of daily festivities.

3:00 p.m. EDT: Guild Wars -- Lis
It's time to get to Lion's Arch! Join Elisabeth as she and Glyph of Nostalgia (and friends) push on through the gates of Kryta.

5:00 p.m. EDT: Mabinogi -- Beau
Mabinogi is a game that keeps changing. Want to catch up on the latest details? Beau's on it. He'll be doing his yearly revisit to the game and hopes to turn some new players on to this great sandbox!

7:00 p.m. EDT: EVE Online -- Mike
The weekly EVE stream returns with -- what else -- a cannonball run into deep, dark space. Explosions ahoy!

9:00 a.m. EDT: Defiance -- Psykopig
The adventure is back on! Tune in as Psykopig ventures into Defiance again and shows you some sweet action MMO action!

5:00 p.m. EDT: Age of Conan -- Beau
It's been a long time since Beau has slung a sword in Age of Conan, so there's no better time than now to try again. What do you think -- can he survive?

8:00 p.m. EDT: DC Universe Online -- Larry
How many kids does Larry have? Three, actually. The oldest one is usually caged in the attic, but he and his eldest son are going to spend the evening playing DC Universe Online for tonight's family MMO night.

9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II -- MJ
It's the triumphant return of EverQuest Two-sday! (OK, it really didn't go anywhere, but it has been a whole week!) That means MJ will be getting into more trouble. She'll be trying to run Deathfist Citadel the right way, from bottom to top. Join her for some Orcish memories.

9:00 a.m. EDT: Defiance -- Psykopig
It's time for the second night of the Defiance week! Have you watched the show and kept up with the haps? Join in with the Pig as he kicks some hellbug butt!

5:00 p.m. EDT: MechWarrior Online -- Beau
Join Beau and members of the developer team from Piranha Games to talk -- and battle -- in MechWarrior Online!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Defiance -- Mike
Mike delves deeper into the world of Defiance. Is this another brainless shooty-MMO, or is there some meat to be plucked from its bones?

8:00 p.m. EDT: Darkfall -- MJ
It's time again for Choose My Adventure Live! This season features MJ heading into the world of Agon for the first time. What adventures (and deaths) await? Tune in to see.

9:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m. EDT: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Larry
The raid night crew is farming for gear. The Scum and Villainy bosses gave the DPS too much trouble last time, but Terror From Beyond is quite doable. Can they complete it without dying? (Probably not.)

Is Jasmine's Great Weapon Fighter actually great at fighting with weapons? Find out during this hour of Neverwinter! No spoilers.

9:00 p.m. EDT: Aion -- MJ

Richie is jumping back into Neverwinter again this week as he continues his journey to max level with his Devoted Cleric. Watch him dispatch orcs, ogres, and other monsters from the manual in this two-hour show.

7:00 p.m. EDT: Dota 2 -- Mike
Mike has never played Dota 2, so he's taking his first few matches live in the hopes of learning some tips from viewers. Get ready for disaster!

12:00 p.m. EDT: SMITE -- Blake
Join Blake on Lunchtime Livecast #53 as he reviews the latest patch for everybody's favorite third-person online brawling MOBA hybrid, SMITE.

We totally understand that you've got things to do -- mobs to slay, loot to hoard. So we know that sometimes you just can't celebrate on someone else's schedule. That's why we bring you plenty of parties that you can join whenever is best for you. Just pick one and join the festivities-on-demand.
