MJ Guthrie

Community Manager

When not immersed in her favorite virtual worlds, MJ can be found hanging out with her family, reading, coaching/playing sports, writing fiction, singing, and dabbling in graphic design (in random order, depending on mood and season). Her favorite part of MMOs? Observing the dynamics of virtual communities. That psychology degree has to come in handy somewhere, doesn't it?

MJ's Massively Overpowered adventures can be found many places: She investigates Secret World Legends/The Secret World's conspiracies in Chaos Theory, chronicles the EverQuest franchise in EverQuesting, practices survival in many sandboxes with The Survivalist, and livestreams for the Stream Team.

The Stream Team: Teamwork and pteras in PixARK

Massively OP’s MJ didn’t get very far solo in her first look at PixARK, but now she’s going to team up so she can experience more of the land of voxel dinos. Can she successfully tame a ptera? MJ certainly hopes so! Walking everywhere means too many opportunities to fall down deep holes and die. Tune in live at 9:00 p.m. as MJ dives deeper into this early access.

The Survivalist: Four hopes for the future of ARK Survival Evolved

As we explored last week, game development isn’t always an upward trajectory. Some things soar, and some things crash. Our last Survivalist conversation was about four ways that the ARK: Survival Evolved that launched was better than the early early access build and four ways that it was worse. Since launch, development has continued, some on the base game and quite a bit on expansions. Whether the overall game as it stands right now is better or worse depends in part on what aspects are more important to you and likely which expansion you play. (Let’s hear it for Aberration!)

Even with improvements made to the game since launch, there are areas that could really use some attention. Today, I’d like to focus on four things that I really want for the future of ARK!

While Massively OP’s MJ is in California, we thought it would be fun to join her for a bit on her adventures.

How radical is Radical Heights? That’s the question Massively OP’s MJ aims to answer as she pokes her head in this new game for the very first time.

The Stream Team: A big boss beat down in ARK

Just because there are no pillars to enter the lairs of the spider, ape, or dragon bosses on ARK’s Aberration doesn’t mean that Massively OP’s MJ can’t fight them! That’s one of the benefits of being a server admin. Since the team didn’t transfer to this server, many of the tech recipes are unavailable without fighting these bosses, so those monsters will be called forth to face the MJ and the gang. Can they devise winning strategies using the aberrant animals? Tune in live at 2:00 p.m. to see.
