The Stream Team: Accessing Albion Online's winter alpha test

Betas, Fantasy, Video, Livestream, Sandbox, The Stream Team

It's back to bunny butchering for Massively's MJ -- if she can manage to do it! Albion Online has started its winter alpha test, and MJ excitedly jumped in to explore more of this game. And then she remembered: In order to make armor and weapons so she can explore, she's faced with having to participate in a few rounds of bunny punching. (Let's not even remind her of the skinning sounds!) Can she do it? Or can she find something a little less cuddly that will work? Or maybe she won't even worry about new clothes and just become a farmer instead! Join us live at 8:00 p.m. for a look at how far Albion has come since its summer test.

The Stream Team: This Marvel Heroes event is for the cows

Super-hero, Video, Events (In-Game), Free-to-Play, Marvel Heroes, Livestream, The Stream Team

Anyone who has played Marvel Heroes for more than 30 minutes knows that this game is big on events because there is always an event going on! And the latest event has really gone to the cows. That's right, cows: many, many cows. Having never been to Bovenheim before, Massively's MJ ventured forth this weekend with other Minions to see what all the heifer hoopla was about. It's no joke when the first explamation heard upon entering was, 'Holy cow!" You seriously have to see this place to believe it. So join MJ and the Minions at 8:00 p.m. for their second trip into the land of moo, moo, quack?

The Stream Team: Analyzing ArcheAge's latest update

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

ArcheAge just introduced a new gift event meant to help the economy in a controlled way (according to the latest producer's letter, at least). Another anticipated change ushered in with this update was the gazebo farm, the largest single farm plot a player can own. It's a beaut, but it costs an awful lot -- especially in labor points! That means Massively's MJ needs to earn gold while simultaneously conserving her labor. Can she manage that? Only if she finds plenty of trouble to get into! Join us live at 3:00 p.m. for a chat about the latest updates (including the recent sloth addition) while MJ tries to make progress on her plans to acquire this fancy new real estate.

When the servers were finally sorted last weekend, Massively's MJ was able to bring you a first look at H1Z1's early access on one of the many PvP servers. But folks have been asking to see the world on the PvE server, so she's diving back into the sandbox and facing death at the hands of zombies, bears, wolves, and any really peeved deer. Oh, and let's not forget starvation! Will MJ find friends as she did in the first part of her PvP journey, or will folks be more like those near the end? Join us live at 1:00 p.m. to see.

The Stream Team:  Returning for round two of The Repopulation
Last time, Massively's MJ showed the very beginnings of life in The Repopulation, including character creation and the newbie trainers. This time she's diving head-first into the fray, practicing some combat on the training grounds before heading out into the open world. Since the game's a sandbox, there is no prescribed path for her to follow, so who knows which direction her adventures will take? Will she come across hostile fauna and friendly players or the reverse? Maybe she'll discover some hidden gem, or maybe just gems in general. Join us live at 12:00 p.m. for this second look into the early access.

The Stream Team: Prowling ArcheAge's Perinoor Ruins

Thanks to the sandboxy nature of ArcheAge, there are still plenty of things Massively's MJ has never done. And one of those things is explore the wilds of Perinoor Ruins. Depending on the time and the threat level, the zone could be a hotbed of war activity or it could be a quiet stroll through a tropical park. Which will it be this time?
