The Stream Team: MLT edition, May 13 - 19, 2013

MJ Guthrie

Nothing beats an MLT, especially when the tomato is nice and ripe! Except maybe Massively TV. MMmm mmmm. Now there's something you can really sink your teeth into -- the wild and crazy antics of your favorite Stream Team hosts! And they've got a menu for all tastes this week, from space adventures to dragons to WWII planes. Of course, it all comes with a side of reruns and a dessert highlight to complete your meal.

So pull up a chair and grab yourself a helping or two... or 10. Hey, there's no limit here; enjoy as much as you like! While you're enjoying the spread, be sure to join in the after-dinner chat in Outtakes.

3:00 p.m. EDT: Neverwinter -- Jasmine
It's PvP hour as Jasmine grabs her Great Weapon Fighter and slashes and dashes her way through the standings on internet video game nodes for points.

5:00 p.m. EDT: DragonRealms -- Beau
Beau is checking out DragonRealms, another MUD made by one of his favorite MUD developers, If you have never watched a MUD in action, this is a great place to start!

9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II -- MJ
Although a full Deathfist Citadel run has so far eluded MJ, it's going to happen this time. Really! So join in the group and make the whole thing go smoother... and quicker.

10:00 p.m. EDT: The Secret World -- MJ
Energized by her success finding Tyler Freeborn, MJ takes on even more Blue Mountain adventures. Grab your favorite weapons and join in the fun and the fright of this spooky, spine-tingling game.

7:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warplanes -- Mike & MJ
Mike leaps into the cockpit again to bash up some enemy planes and do aileron rolls all over everyone's faces -- possibly even MJ's! That's right; this time, he won't be alone. You've been waiting for the duo to team up again, so here's your chance to see who dies the most in one hour.

9:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. EDT: The Secret World -- Psykopig

4:00 p.m. EDT: Darkfall - Dylan
Life is a beach, and Massively is playing in the sand this weekend! Or is that the sandbox? Either way, join us as we mine, chop, and fish our way to glory in this epic online RPG. While streaming this game may be risky, the fear of death around every corner fuels us even more to carry around expensive items and take the road more traveled by!

6:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warcraft - Dylan
Alliance vs. Horde is getting hot as we enter the last levels of 1-60 experience in Mists of Pandaria. Join Dylan in this conclusion of his World of Warcraft series and discuss the latest themepark MMO trends. We'll even discuss a little BlizzCon hype.

Sometimes things are so good you have to go back for more! So here are some additional servings of your favorites from last week. Feel free to gorge on them as often as you like.

Highlight Reel
Although testing out new goodies is all fine and well, sometimes you just want to settle in with old familiar tastes. That's where we shine this week's spotlight: an old standby.

Watch as this livestreamer serves up some undead destruction with a golem in her group.

Movies are universally known for some iconic lines. But we're gamers, and we know that there are some pretty memorable zingers in the MMOverse as well. One (among so many) that I will never forget is "I smell Daeva!" from Stormwing in Aion -- probably because he'd say it 350 times during each fight! Bree's favorite is: "What a terrible miscarriage of justice! If I'd been running that trial, it would have been one of the best miscarriages of justice of all time. OF ALL TIME!" from Councilor Lumpys in GW. Matt had trouble deciding but shared this from a Bounty Hunter in SWTOR: "I love assassinating assassins. They always look so... surprised."

So what has stuck in your head? I know there are a ton of lines out there, so toss your favorite quotes from your online adventures in the comments below. And I'll be back!

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.
