Raven (and I) Need You!

Illustration for article titled Raven (and I) Need You!

Tomorrow I'm writing up my review of Playstation 3's MAG. But today, today I need to earn my command stripes and spend an inordinate amount of time playing the game.


Unlike our typical reviews, games with heavy multiplayer aspects, like massively multiplayer online titles and online-only games, get a bit of a different approach. We revisit the game after our review, but most noticeably, we hold off on reviewing the game the day it hits, instead giving it a bit of time to breath, and more importantly, more time for us to test out all of the modes, all of the skills, all of the onlininess of the game.

With MAG, that means hitting level 15 so you can unlock the ability to command squads. So today, I'll be playing MAG for most of the afternoon, telling people what to do and hoping that, unlike at Kotaku Tower, they listen.


Jump on and join me (KotakuCrecente) if you have time. If you're not in Raven (because you're a big fat baby who doesn't like Edgar Allan Poe and the color purple) feel free to whine tell me about your personal choice for PMC and what you love or hate about MAG.

Off to yell at people but, hopefully, not shoot or run them over.

Oh, that's pretty neat.

You guys should do this again when Battlefield Bad Company 2 hits.

In fact, it would be kind of cool if this sort of thing went down every time there was a major multiplayer release.

Now, I know the editors are too busy to spend a lot of time on one game far past the release date, but a Knights of the Old Republic Online Kotaku Clan?

I would be so in.

Seems like it would be a good way to spark up small pockets of Kotaku gaming communities. Hop in with an editor at release, and long after the editor has left for other games, you'll have a group of players keeping up the community in that game, on that platform.

Maybe it's just me, but these sort of games are a heck of a lot more fun with a group of like minded players - and that's not something that's easy to find, sometimes.
