The Stream Team: Day off edition, May 27 - June 2, 2013

MJ Guthrie

Oh, glorious day! With the exception of those chaps (and chapettes) working in emergency services and the like, many folks all over the U.S. get the chance this week to experience that all-too-rare phenomenon: the Extra Day Off. And all I can say is Hallelujah!

Extra days off are free time to sit back and do nothing without a care in the world... oh, whom are we kidding? They are often filled with all those chores and tasks you just don't have time to get to during the work week and are too exhausted to deal with during the weekend. And in the case of holidays with special meaning, perhaps your thoughts and activities are turned toward some type of special observance.

Whether your day is filled with frolicking and festivities, food and family, some combination thereof, or even none of the above, Massively TV will be right here when you have a spare moment. With plenty of live shows and lively reruns, The Stream Team will help you make the most of your day off, not to mention help you get through the rest of the week as well!

7:00 p.m. EDT: EVE Online - Mike
It's time again for some low-sec mining! Join Mike as he ventures in his Venture to find the hottest, rarest ores in space's most dangerous locales.

10:00 p.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 - Dylan
Good Graves returns to the sPvP bloodbath as we cover the latest updates to Guild Wars 2. You can knock us down, but you can't keep us out of the action-based PvP action!

9:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. EDT: The Secret World - Psykopig
Even though Psykopig's old characters didn't work out, this new Illuminati bad-boy is giving the Solomon Islands a run for their money! Tune in as the Pig dives further into the secretive world of The Secret World.

8:00 p.m. EDT: Free Realms - Larry
Maybe this week SOE won't decide to do maintenance during the stream so that Larry and his daughter can get some fun on in Free Realms. Join them tonight for Family MMO night!

9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II - MJ
There's so much to see and do in Cobalt Scar; MJ's just barely getting started. This trip she dives deeper in (and we hopefully don't mean the grave!) to bring you a look at the goodies of EQII's walrus- and siren-filled update.

10:00 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 - Richie
The Last Stand at Southsun patch has landed for Guild Wars 2, and Richie is going to be checking out the latest content on the karka-infested island. Join him for this crabtacular two-hour livestream show!

5:00 p.m. EDT: PlanetSide 2 - Beau
Join Beau as he blasts his way into your heart when he plays PlanetSide 2. Seriously, if you're Vanu, he aims for the heart.

6:00 p.m. EDT: Aion - MJ
Can luck strike twice? Watch as MJ delves back into the Shugo Kingdom Adventure in an attempt to gain more wealth untold. Who knows, maybe this time she'll have room in her cube for it!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Defiance - Mike
Mike continues his Defiance adventures with more shooting, more driving, and more looking extremely confused over what's happening on-screen. In other words, the usual.

8:00 p.m. EDT: The Secret World - MJ
There's nothing like a trip to the mountains to get away from hustle and bustle of everyday life, so MJ is packing up and heading deeper into Blue Mountain, where she can commune with nature. And ghosts. And other-worldly things, like cats!

9:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m. EDT: Star Wars: The Old Republic - Larry
Larry and the gang aren't quite ready for hard mode operations, but maybe soon. This week, it's Scum and Villainy again!

3:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warcraft - Jasmine
The doctor is in! Jasmine picks up her long-neglected Priest and sets off to heal her way to level 90! Or, depending on PuG quality, shadow her way to level 90.

4:00 p.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 - Jasmine
It's lowbie, newbie time! Jasmine dusts off her low-level Warrior for a GW2 fun day on Yak's Bend. As always, guests welcome.

9:00 p.m. EDT: Darkfall Unholy Wars - MJ
This may be the final CMA live, but it certainly isn't the last of MJ's Darkfall Adventures. Join in to see more of the adventures you voted on!

7:00 p.m. EDT: AQ Worlds - Mike
Mike hops into the flash-based and enormously popular AQ Worlds to see just what it is that keeps so many people playing this relatively simple title.

3:00 p.m. EDT: SMITE - Blake
Lunchtime Livecast #66 comes to you on your day off! And if you're one of the unlucky few who do have to work at a regular job today, just sneak your laptop into the break room for today's episode.

8:00 p.m. EDT: Darkfall - Dylan
Dylan returns to the hardcore PvP enjoyment that is Darkfall Unholy Wars! He may gain prowess and strength, or he might just die and lose everything he was carrying. Join us for a relaxing hour of fishing and bloodshed.

This week, many folks will reflect on the sacrifices others make so we can enjoy our freedoms. Included in those freedoms is the ability to immerse ourselves in our favorite MMOs. And thanks to reruns, you also have the freedom to watch shows of your favorite games any time you like!

Highlight Reel
Memorial Day can bring back memories of youth for many folks, from BBQs to parades to haunted houses. No, really! In my youth, one of my most cherished memories involved exploring an honest-to-goodness haunted house. If you missed out on such an experience yourself, this week's spotlight gives you the opportunity to do so now:

Join our Stream Teamer from Down Under as he takes you through a genuine haunted abode -- complete with a killer bathroom!

With so many possibilities, what do you do on your extra days off (besides enjoy The Stream Team, of course!)? Do you participate in a time-honored family tradition? Do you devote yourself to home-improvement projects? Or do you hunker down for a marathon MMO gaming session? Tell us in the comments below.

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.
