    I'm on the list to recieve the MAG Beta codes. I might get into the private Beta but i doubt it because Nick is only recieving 30-40 private Beta codes. And when the public beta starts I will be definitley in and I'll comment on the game in a later topic that Nick posts...so keep reading THE GAMER ACCESS posts to see if I have anything to say towards the game.

    i just received code for MAG, it's December 2nd. Stupid update took 6 hours to download. amazing gameplay. S.V.E.R is just sick to play with. i'm really liking how the spawn system works, it's nice not being the only schmuck movin threw the map after spawning trying to reach the objective.
