MAG is here! MAG is here! Run screaming from your houses, for MAG is here!

If you haven’t heard, MAG is here. To be specific, the MAG beta, putting upwards of 16,000 players in a 256-man battlefield, has gone live. Not one of those lucky 16,000? We’ve got a treat for you…

We have a MAG Beta key to give away. It’s all we could grab from the clutches of a dying Zipper employee as we escaped their top secret compound, but that’s enough to get you in the game. It’s a dog eat dog world.

Assassin’s Creed II Sex Scene Detailed

Posted in Official PlayStation Magazine, PlayStation 3, Ubisoft, Xbox 360 with tags , on October 2, 2009 by Chris Hawke

Assassins Creed 2

No, wait, that came out wrong.

Yesterday, news broke that Assassin’s Creed II would have a sex scene. Of course, we didn’t know if this would be a little bit of camara shake, a PG-13 Mass Effect homage, or a full on Hot Coffee scandal. Well, now we have our answer, straight from the 3rd Official Playstation Magazine Podcast.

It seems like sex will only be controllable once, when you take control of a teenage Ezio, and must climb the wall to your girlfriend’s window, where you sneak in and…Y’know. Do that. We don’t know where the camara will be pointed while the rumpy-pumpy goes on, but some say you’ll interact with the scene some sort of QTE. Disturbing.

Game’s out on the 20th November. Jack Thompson lawsuit probably a few days after.

Dragon Rising

Oh, aren’t you lucky people?

Along with the new ‘Look And Feel’ video, new eye-candy has emerged; ‘Community Sniper’. There’s not much else to say about it other than, as expected, the blend of bullet drop, thermal vision, massive terrain and hardcore warfare makes for one awesome montage.

As you well know, the game can be bought/stolen on the 9th, and the video is right after the jump.

Dragon Rising

A dude gets his head blown off.

Yep. The new Developer Diary for Operation Flashpoint, or OpFlash to its friends, may have some interesting facts, some great footage and one or two gory scenes, but it’s around the middle of this video when a dude gets his head blown off. By a sniper round. His helmet flies off, he stumbles, the top half of his skull missing, before falling to the wall beside him. A must-buy, then.

Game’s out on the 9th, video after the jump
