And in keeping with the important spirit of the week, don't forget to do your Massively duty and visit the polls! We have one for you after the break.
5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Runes of Magic
Sure, Massively can brag about having the world's best Runes of Magic expert with Jeremy Stratton, but it's been a while since we took a look at it from a brand-newbie's point of view. So Beau is going to jump in from the beginning and you can watch. Have some advice? Join him in the chat room. If he's lucky, he'll snag Jeremy along for the ride! Watch for his write up in his Sunday Rise and Shiny column.
7:00 p.m. EST: Mike -- EVE Online
It's that time again, EVE fans: time for a cannonball run. Join Mike as he loads up lowbie character Cannonball Rum, drops her in a rookie ship with no fittings, and heads out into the black to taunt pirates and steal ore. Can she survive the depths of null-sec?
9:00 p.m. EST: Dylan "GGraves" -- DayZ
Massively TV covers the emerging Arma II mod: DayZ! There is a lot of depth to this popular, zombie-based title, and GGraves is excited to share his journey through Chernarus! The predators are dangerous in this zombie-infested scene, but with enough endurance, stealth and patience, Dylan may live longer than an hour.
5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Fleck
It's been one million years since Beau has heard anything from this indie, location-based title, but it looks as if there has been a lot going on during that time! During this hour, he and a member of the developer team will check out some of the new features, explain many of the old features, and kill a few dozen zombies along the way. Don't worry; it will make sense when you see it.
7:00 p.m. EST: Mike -- Rose Online
Rose Online is a free-to-play, anime-style MMO that Mike knows absolutely nothing about. So tune in as he creates a character and walks through the beginning areas of the title in the hopes of learning more about this interstellar universe.
8:00 p.m. EST: MJ -- The Secret World
Halloween may be over in date, but it is never over in spirit! Join MJ as she prowls around the island where Halloween never ends. Who knows -- maybe she will find a few compadres willing to brave the zombies and bugs with her.
5:00 p.m. EST: Beau -- Wakfu
There's a new character in town, the Foggernaut, and Beau's going to attempt to play with him during this stream. If you're curious about Wakfu or even more curious about this new character, check this stream out. There's no guarantee about how much damage he'll do, but it'll be worth it just to see the mechanics!
6:00 p.m. EST: MJ -- Aion
Looking forward to playing two of the three new classes, MJ is finding it hard to choose which class to play now! Can she continue with the Spirit Master, knowing that Troubadour is on the way? What about her Cleric, who has stalwartly stood by her through many a battle? Come help MJ choose which class to play as she dives into the beauty that is Atreia.
3:00 p.m. EST: Elisabeth -- Guild Wars 2
What's a Charr Necromancer to do in the world of Guild Wars 2? Save the world, of course! Join Elisabeth as she seeks to raise an army against the dragons, one minion at a time!
7:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m. EST: Mike -- World of Tanks Two-Hour Smash'em Up
World of Tanks makes its triumphant return to the stream this week with more explosions, more embarrassing deaths, and more last-minute victories. Hang out with Mike for two whole hours while he pancakes cars, knocks down houses, and laughs gleefully as his tank is turned into a smoldering heap. Remember, World of Tanks is free-to-play, so you can always download the game and play along!
7:00 a.m. EST: David "Psykopig" Desi -- The Secret World
Can you unravel a mystery? Psykopig wants to try! Join in as he digs deep into all the ins and outs of this sadistically sweet MMO filled with all the unraveling you can handle!
10:00 p.m. EST: Dylan "GGraves" -- Heroes of Newerth
Join GGraves in one our favorite Not So Massively titles: Heroes of Newerth! Dylan will queue up for some fast-paced 5v5 Mid Wars matches! This game mode was made popular by HoN, and it remains one of the more unique styles of play for lane pushing MOBAs. Queueing for "All Random" mode, there is a very unlikely chance of balanced play, but chances are high that everyone will have a lot of fun!
Doing our civic duties (as well as all those other real life duties) can take us away from our favorite livestreams. But don't worry -- you can go ahead and fulfill those important obligations knowing that last week's streams are linked here for your viewing pleasure.
