I hit the same wall in Magicka as the Quick Look - not sure if I want to go back to be honest.

Still no news on the XBLA release. :(

It really looks like the Warlock mod from Warcraft III, fun times.

Nice, glad to see them going back to something that worked well. Thought that as crazy as the Vietnam expansion was in idea, playing it wasn't that much fun with all the guns & getting shot across the screen all the time. Think if they do more fantasy themed expansions it might be a good expansion for lots of their humor & crazy battles that come from that system of magicka.

I still have no clue how you could possibly balance this game for PvP.  There is no mana, no cooldowns and many of the spells straight up incapacitate anyone hit by em.    First person to macro spam thunderbolt wins?

I love Conan, and the references to it make this trailer cool.

I don't much care for the game, but I love the campiness of it and the trailers.

Majicka is great.

Anyone with a g15 type keyboard will murder everyone though.

I'm f**cked up and that s**t looks like wizards...

@Wandrecanada:  I assume it'll work like the arenas, where you wont start with any of the special spells but can have them randomly drop in. Then, even if your opponent does manage to grab thunderbolt, throw up a quick lightning shield- odds are they wont also have nullify.
