The Stream Team: The longest day edition, June 24 - 30, 2013

MJ Guthrie

Recently we experienced the the longest day of the year, seasonally speaking. The fact that it happens in the middle of the night for us North American folks does not diminish the day's grandeur.

But beyond this scientifically proven date, there are other days that totally should be in the running for longest day ever. Like that day where you last in line at the DMV. Or that last day of work before your first vacation in forever, during which you get to see that one concert you've been waiting to see half your life. These have surely earned their space in the annals of longest days. Chances are you've got a few ideas yourself of days that just seem to drag on and on and on, as if time is being stretched infinitely just to taunt you.

We can empathize. So to help that slow-as-molasses time pass by a bit faster, The Stream Team has plenty of live shows on Massively TV to entertain you throughout the week. Feel free to take us along and watch reruns while you are forced to endure never-ending waits; you'll be the envy of the DMV line!

5:00 p.m. EDT: Farm Fortress -- Beau
Beau is jumping into Farm Fortress this week for Rise and Shiny. It's a very unique-looking MMO that promises to surprise. Will it? Join Beau as he explores this game for the very first time and see!

7:00 p.m. EDT: EVE Online -- Mike
It's a very special stream this time around, as Mike tries to organize a group cannonball run. Create a new Caldari character and join Mike for a disastrous trip into nullsec!

9:00 a.m. EDT: Guild Wars 2 -- Psykopig
Psykopig is taking a quick trip into Tyria. Massively has some GW2 trial codes to give out, and Psykopig is the one to give 'em. Tune in and find out how you can win them!

7:00 p.m. EDT: Dragon's Prophet -- MJ
Open beta has a few more patches under its belt, so MJ heads back in to check out more in the world of Auratia.

8:00 p.m. EDT: Free Realms -- Larry
Larry's youngest padawan has been begging to stream Free Realms together. This week, they are going house hopping, exploring some of the game's player-generated content.

9:00 p.m. EDT: EverQuest II -- MJ
That boss may have walked away from MJ last week, but she still lived to tell about it... and even return! Maybe she'll take another crack at that massive walrus -- if she can snag another hand or two. Then again, maybe she'll nab viewers for a random mid-level dungeon.

5:00 p.m. EDT: PlanetSide 2 -- Beau
Join Beau and Maggie from SOE as they destroy Vanu (or play as Vanu; we're not sure yet) in this exciting PlanetSide 2 stream. Jump in the chat room to ask Maggie all things PS2!

6:00 p.m. EDT: The Secret World -- MJ
After a side trip to acquire a chainsaw, MJ heads back to Blue Mountain to continue the ominous adventures there.

7:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m. EDT: Aion -- MJ & Mike
Is MJ going to be jumping in as soon as 4.0 servers are up to live out her dreams of being a Songweaver? You better believe it! And she won't be alone, either; Mike is also getting in on the Dark Betrayal action. Join the duo in a two-hour launch day event (which may or may not have other special guests as well!).

9:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m. EDT: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Larry
It might be time for the raid team to move on to harder content: Nearly everyone is fully geared and ready to tackle hard-mode Terror from Beyond. Operator IX gave them trouble last time, and they want revenge!

9:00 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. EDT: RIFT -- Psykopig
He tried to stay away, but its just not happening. Another week of RIFT with Psykopig is coming to your internet!

3:00 p.m. EDT: World of Warcraft -- Jasmine
It's Shadow Priest time in the World of Warcraft. Mind flay, dungeons, pet battles, oh my!

5:00 p.m. EDT: Mabinogi -- Beau
Join Beau and members of the Mabinogi team as they show you exclusive, early new content before it goes live! What will happen in this first of several chapters? Tune in and see.

7:00 p.m. EDT: Firefall -- Mike
Mike's Firefall adventures continue in Choose My Adventure Live. The community selected PvE in last week's poll, so tune in for some Ares missions, dynamic events, and of course, thumping.

Rumor has it there are MMOs to be played -- so get out there and play them!

Nothing to see here, move along....

Nothing makes time drag out longer than having nothing to do. So when you find yourself in that position, check out some of these reruns from last week's shows! Or, check out any of the other shows in our library of reruns. We promise, time really will pass by quicker.

Highlight Reel
Time going slow and you don't know what to do? How about have other people tell you what to do! That's what Choose My Adventure is all about:

In his first CMA Live, this streamer dived into the world with a character created by the community.

Have you ever experienced a day that you'd swear defied the laws of nature and went longer than 24 hours? One where you are forced to live that song that gets stuck in your head: It is the day that never ends... it just goes on and on my friends. Well, tell us about it in the comments below.%Poll-83145%
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.
