MAG 2.10 Patch Brings Picture Taking and Multitasking

If you thought we were done talking about MAG, boy were you wrong. It seems the developers continue to support their game long after release with patch 2.10, which brings in-game screenshots and a multi-queue feature. This feature  allows you to queue up for several game modes at once while also getting an XP bonus for doing so.

The full list of changes can be found after the break, but I have to hand it to Zipper Interactive. Many games start to see a decline in support around the one year mark, but they keep chugging along. Now, if only they added nukes. What a sight that would be.

An avid gamer since birth, I consider myself a new-age gamer. My first system was the N64, but the first system I really cared about was my Xbox Original. I'm a computer science major in college, and spend all my money on games, and stuff I don't need. I've never played Zelda or many Mario games in my youth. I'm also a huge sports fan, and a chick flick lover. My favorite games include Gears of War, Halo, Fallout, GTA, Mass Effect, and Metal Gear Solid.
