The Stream Team: No more Landmark tour deaths!

Betas, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Video, Free-to-Play, Giveaways, Livestream, The Stream Team, Player-Generated Content, Landmark

Thanks to the disabling of fall damage, Massively's MJ is able to take a tour of more Landmark builds without the fear of imminent death! Even without mobs, travel in-game has been dangerous for her; MJ's died many a time just trying to visit cool spots from the gallery. But that's all changed (at least for now), and not a moment too soon: She's seen plenty of impressive possibilities to check out this week. There are Egyptian builds, Orc builds, tree houses and ruins galore... even pinball machines! Pretty much anything you can imagine is being built somewhere in game. Join us live at 3:00 p.m. to check out some of the latest in Landmark creativity. Then grab a beta code and try it out for yourself!

If you're a fan of Star Wars: The Old Republic, you likely already know about the 12x story line experience boost that subscribers who preorder the Shadow of Revan expansion get.

You seriously have to see it to believe it! And to spice things up a bit, MJ will also try to fall to the Dark Side. Can she manage to channel some evil? Join us live at 8:00 p.m. to clock how fast this little force user blasts through her early levels.

The Stream Team: Poking around in ArcheAge's PvP lands

Fantasy, Video, Aion, PvP, Free-to-Play, Livestream, Sandbox, The Stream Team

ArcheAge has had a rough week, and some players are already crying the game is dead. Is it, though? Massively's MJ still sees plenty of signs of life; her adventurous activities have not been curtailed. Since players seem to be drawn to red names like a moth to the flame, what better way to go and scout out the population than poking around in PvP-enabled lands? It may not be the most accurate of testing methodologies, but it's bound to be fun. Will she stay on the Haranya continent or venture deep into Nuian territory? And what about Auroria? Survival is definitely not assured, so join us live at 9:00 p.m. to see just how long she makes it!

World of Warcraft
Massively's Mike Foster started his MMO career with World of Warcraft, cruising the hills of Stranglethorn on a completely incompetent priest. Later he became a Mage, Death Knight, a Rogue, a Shaman, and... everything but Paladin, basically. Thus, it's only fitting that he dive immediately into Warlords of Draenor, WoW's most recent expansion, to see what's new. Tune in tonight to watch Mike as he investigates some Warlords of Draenor content and attempts to re-learn his PvP-centric hotkeys.

The action starts at 7:00 p.m. EST, as long as the queue gods treat him right.

Fantasy, Video, Free-to-Play, Livestream, ArcheAge, Crafting, The Stream Team

After a lot of work saving (and then unexpectedly having to build a farm cart), Massively's MJ is just about ready to build her farm wagon in ArcheAge. She only needs a couple more ingredients -- and both require venturing into hostile lands. It's definitely worth the risk; a wagon can start quite literally hauling in the moolah. Will she survive long enough to procure her goods and finish her favorite vehicle? Join us live at 3:00 p.m. to see!

It's here! EverQuest II's Altar of Malice expansion is live for All Access members, and Massively's MJ can't wait to get inside and return to her roots on the Isle of Refuge. However, this homecoming won't be all rainbows and unicorns (or even goblins and sharks, for that matter); it will be bittersweet as the beloved starting zone has been blasted by some magical calamity. There is plenty of new stuff to see and do, so join us live at 8:00 p.m. for this first romp through AoM.

The Stream Team: Whiling away my Monday in WildStar

Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Video, Livestream, WildStar, The Stream Team

It's the continuing adventures of Emy Fluffybutt! Last episode Massively's MJ took on a group boss in WildStar with the unexpected help of a passerby who jumped into the fray. (See, there are other low-level players in the game!) But even with that accomplishment, she's far from her goal of retiring comfortably in her very little handcrafted housing hideout. That means there's plenty places to see and mobs to kill -- and hopefully housing items to plunder! What better way to while away a Monday than collecting loot? Join us live at 3:00 p.m. to continue the bouncy Aurin's adventures on Nexus.

The Stream Team: Lollygagging in Landmark's Whispering Wind Academy

Betas, Video, Free-to-Play, Livestream, The Stream Team, Player-Generated Content, Landmark

Every time Massively's MJ gets the urge to flex her building skills in Landmark, she's distracted by shiny resources and the amazing builds of others. Yes, she's a certified lollygagger. But that can have its advantages when she finds amazing things to share. And find something she did! Always a fan of castles, MJ's been really sidetracked by the Whispering Willow Academy. It's a fully functioning estate with eight levels (fully furnished!) "featuring a guild hall, mystical garden, building lab, academy tavern, cell blocks, stations, [and] weapons training." There are also fountains, swings, a magical wishing well, and housing. Want to see what this massive claim has to offer? Join us live at 3:00 p.m. for a tour and for a few codes.

The Stream Team: Finally taking the first on ArcheAge's Auroria
Auroria is here, and that means there are fresh new lands to explore in ArcheAge -- if you are lucky enough to be able to log in! Massively's MJ can finally log in, so what more of an invitation does she need to explore? Sure, death may really be waiting around every corner, but that won't stop MJ from prowling around the new continent and poking into everything interesting she can find. With any luck she can dodge enough PvP to check out where the new castles will soon go. Join us live at 3:00 p.m. for this peek at the new shinies of Auroria.
