The Stream Team: Stuffed to the gills edition, December 2 - 8, 2013

MJ Guthrie

If you partook in Thanksgiving activities over the weekend, chances are you enjoyed a tasty morsel or twenty (thousand)... and that's not even counting leftovers! As much as I love the holiday, I am often glad it's only a single day because there is always just way too much food. It's certainly not uncommon for people to end the day feeling like Violet Beauregard after her brush with an Everlasting Gobstopper. And instead of a juice press, we have to settle for a bench press.

Luckily, overindulging in Massively TV does not have any of those pesky side effects the holiday dinner has; you can watch The Stream Team as much as you like and never feel as if you have to roll out of the room. Why, you can even watch while using the bench press if you want. If, however, you'd rather not mix the two activities, use the schedule below to sort out when to do each.

4:00 p.m. EST: Zombie Pandemic -- Beau
Zombie Pandemic is a bit like a browser-based board game. It's a bleak game that features quests, an unusual combat style, and many different stories to follow. Join Beau and hope he survives!

7:00 p.m. EST: EVE Online -- Mike
Mike returns to New Eden to catch up on his favorite hobby: mining space rocks.

7:30 p.m. EST: The Secret World -- MJ
MJ stumbled into the last part of the first story mission without you, and now she refuses to continue until you can share that fun with her! Watch as she faces an ultimate choice during her escape from the Dreaming Prison.

9:00 p.m. EST: EverQuest II -- MJ
For someone who isn't big on alts, MJ now has a Paladin and a Channeler -- and neither gets the love and attention it deserves! To help remedy that, MJ is jumping in to work her Channeler up to at least the Paly's level... because no one wants to see those beginning zones yet again!

7:00 p.m. EST: TERA -- Mike
Mike returns to the world of TERA to smash through some dungeons and gather all the aggros.

8:30 p.m. EST: DotA 2 -- Mike
Mike once again leaps into the DotA 2 fray, this time playing a support character and helping to shove his team into victory.

3:00 p.m. EST: Final Fantasy XIV -- MJ
Are you feeling the urge for a nice dive into a deep dark dungeon? MJ is! She's looking to experience Haukke Manor and wants you to join her.

9:00 p.m. EST: The Secret World -- MJ
This is the dungeon run you have all been waiting for! There's no more putting it off -- it's Slaughterhouse time. Join MJ as she tackles the last of her Elite dungeon requirements to qualify to face the Gatekeeper. If this run is a success, then she can earn the ability to have some nightmares... Nightmare dungeons, that is.

10:00 a.m. EST: Hearthstone -- Richie
The Hearthstone open beta is set to begin this month, though in Blizzard time, that could be January or February! Before you drop 150 gold on the arena, watch Richie draft a deck from scratch and guide you through his selections.

4:00 p.m. EST: Trove -- Beau
Beau is checking out the strangely attractive Trove, a new open-world builder and adventure simulator from Trion Worlds. It's only in alpha but already looks super fun!

1:00 p.m. EST: Vanguard -- MJ
SOE servers didn't allow for the dungeon run last week, so MJ is heading back into Telon for another go. Join the group for some great adventures, fame and fortune, and possibly death.

Kick back, relax, and fill your days with reruns!

Still haven't had your fill of Stream Team antics? Who can blame you -- there can never enough crazy antics in the world. And we know The Stream team is a good source of that, like the sun is for vitamin D. So here's some more for you. Feel free to stuff yourself silly on them.

Tell us true -- did you eat too much this holiday? Did you wish for some Oompa Loompas to come along and help you away from the feasting table, or did you spend so much time gaming that you forgot about the whole big dinner thing?%Poll-85956%
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.
