Video: MAG PlayStation 3 Developer Tips: Direct Action 50°
263w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has posted yet another installment in their MAG PlayStation 3 developer tips series, with today's video dubbed Direct Action.

To quote: For today's Zip-Tips, Lead Tester and owner of the world's largest video game t-shirt collection, Jay Embry, walks us through the popular Direct Action class in MAG.

If you're the visual type we have this nifty Direct Action video narrated by Jay himself, followed by his handy tips. Enjoy!

The game may be all homage, but it's certainly not out to limit anyone's homagination! *crickets chirp*

Err... Let's dive into the all-powerful, easy-to-use editor, shall we? One of the custom characters that comes included on the disc. I'll call him... Monkey Kong?

Creating a custom character in 3DDGH (my fingers thank me for the abbreviation, so please note it) is more than just figuring out what it will be and look like; you have to animate it, too.

264w ago - Zipper Interactive's Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has shared the fifth installment video in their MAG PlayStation 3 developer tips series today dubbed The Skill Tree.

To quote: The weekend is almost here and we're closing our first week of Zip-Tips out with help from our resident "designer in rock," Jason Olander - better known to frequent MAG.com forum visitors as BenjaminBreegg.

Today, Jason drops the knowledge on MAG's skill tree system to teach you how to make a better character. As always, we'll begin with a prep video followed by Jason's words of wisdom:
