The Stream Team: Spring or else edition, January 27 - February 2, 2014

MJ Guthrie

After a month that involved a polar vortices and a polar plunge (I'm surprised we didn't end up with polar bears!), I know a number of people who are threatening to carry out bodily harm to a certain weather-forecasting critter if he deigns to suggest that winter will be extended. Spring or the groundhog gets it! That's the cry I hear around these parts. Hopefully it doesn't come to that, but if you have any furry friends show up on your doorstep this week asking for asylum, you just might want to grant it. Invite them in to watch some Stream Team adventures on Massively TV. And whatever you do, keep them out of the sun on February 2nd!

4:00 p.m. EST: Alganon -- Beau
Join Beau and members of the Alganon team as they explore some of the features of the brand-new and long-awaited expansion. Come ask questions, or if you've never seen it before, check out the gameplay!

7:00 p.m. EST: EVE Online -- Mike
It's been a long while since our last Monday night EVE stream. This week, Mike aims to misbehave by running some Tier II missions in his trusty Drake. Will he live to tell his war stories, or will his ship end up a pile of trash? Follow him into the black to find out.

3:00 p.m. EST: Final Fantasy XIV -- Jasmine
This week Jasmine heads into the first installment of the Crystal Tower, Labyrinth of the Ancients, hoping for sweet loot and a decent PuG. Come see Final Fantasy XIV's first 24-player raid!

9:00 p.m. EST: EverQuest II -- MJ
MJ promised to show off the hardest Skyshrine solo dungeons, so she'll go there first. Then if time permits, maybe she'll hit up a new fabled dungeon.

7:00 p.m. EST: The Secret World -- MJ
Only one things stands in MJ's way of the Nightmare Mode dungeons, and now it's time to overcome that obstacle. It's time to face the Gatekeeper. And she's going to show off all three versions: tank, dps, and healer. If you had to pick one show not to miss, this is it!

9:00 p.m. EST: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Larry
With the Rakghoul plague defeated for good (yeah, right), Larry and the Nefarious crew of misfits head back into the Dread Fortress. It's time to kill us some droids.

8:00 p.m. EST: Vanguard -- MJ
It is Vanguard's anniversary -- a time that should be joyous but is somber in light of the recent closure announcement. Come celebrate all that is great about the game with MJ. With luck, a special guest dev or two will come commiserate with everyone.

10:00 a.m. EST: WildStar -- Richie
Sneak. Slink. Stab. Scavenge. That's the way of the WildStar Stalker. Join Richie as he continues to level up his Draken in Deradune!

7:00 p.m. EST: StarCraft II -- Mike
Mike's adventures in StarCraft II continue, this time with a little 1v1 matchmaking. Will he finally hit a rhythm and become the powerful Terran commander we know he can be?

8:30 p.m. EST: TERA -- Mike
Mike has more questing, grinding, and BAM-hunting to do in TERA this week as he continues to push his Lancer through the dungeon dead zone. Tune in to see this beautiful, combat-focused MMORPG in action.

1:00 p.m. EST: WildStar -- MJ
Welcome to a WildStar Weekend! MJ dives back into the life of an Exile and is bringing you all along for the ride. Will there be laughs? Definitely. Will there be housing? We shall see.

You can't be distracted by streams! You must protect that poor groundhog at all costs today!

What better way to keep your house-guest groundhog occupied than with copious amounts of Stream Team reruns? And it's so easy: They're only a click away!

So now you have to wonder, will the groundhog see his shadow (and portend an additional six weeks of wintery bluster) or will the cloudy skies herald the quick return of spring? Cast your predictions!%Poll-86787%
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.
