I a little low on funds atm so I only have $10 to spare. The magicka game looks awesome but I cant decide whether I want to buy the stand-alone game for 3.99 and use the remaining $6 on another game. Or if I should get the whole damn pack for $10, I think the main question is, how essential are these DLC packs when it comes to online play?

They're not essential, but they are pretty awesome, and that's a pretty good deal if you get all of it.

Magicka DLC is mainly character models. If your main concern is online play, I'd say just get the base game.

The DLC packs are REALLY inconsequential, since they're mostly just alternate costumes, or maps for the challenge mode/versus mode (neither of which I personally find interesting). I'd suggest getting just the main game. If you really must, the important things are:

  • main game
  • Magicka: Vietnam
  • Magicka: The Stars Are Left

If you get those 3, it comes out as less than the $10 you would pay for the complete bundle.
