Did you get a PlayStation Move setup? I'm just now getting into mine, but I'm impressed with it so far and I'm looking forward to more series gaming experiences with it. Maybe this new MAG "2.0" patch is the ticket. The patch...

M.A.G. playable with Move and DualShock at the same time

So we knew that M.A.G. would be getting move support, and an easy to develop assumption from that fact is that people playing with Move would be at an advantage over those playing with a DualShock. The precision (or lack ther...

Details emerge on MAG patch 1.07

Returning to MAG with Interdiction DLC photo
Returning to MAG with Interdiction DLC
by Ben Perlee

When MAG launched this year, players were impressed with large 256 player battles and the epic scale of the factions at play. Sure, the game was criticized for some stiff animations and whether or not the game could live up to it's ambitious nature. However, Zipper Interactive has been proactive with updates to the title, and while many PS3 owners complain that the console and games are too quick to force updates upon them the game has seen some solid improvements over time. With two free DLC packs, it's hard to complain too much.

One thing that Zipper has not done is release is a full on paid DLC. Coming out on June 22, players will be able to drop $9.99 on the first full major expansion pack for the game. Hamza and I had the opportunity for some hands-on with the new content, so follow the jump to see if what is here is worth your cash.

These overhead map views for MAG could come in handy

Taking a look at MAG's maps from a bird's-eye view shouldn't be this interesting. But here we are! Much like sticking your face against a long-uncleaned airplane window to gaze down upon the world, there's something about the...
