Ah, a new day and a new post.
Anyone else here play magicka? Awesome game I say. A bit boring alone but with up to 4 players co-op.... MMMmm tasty flashing spells of destruction everywhere! That spell mayhem is what I wanted to talk about here. And no, I'm not whining about it, dying is a solid part of the game, it's even said in-game.
While it may be hard to get used to the dying at 1st (you have to start waaaaay back from the game sometimes) you will soon realise how fun it sometimes is to actually die. Lols were flying around a group conversation in skype when someone accidentially shoots a water beam into a 3-man steam lightning beam. Or two people try to heal each other at the same time with heal beams and cross them :) ahh... good times.
The normal raging when someone wipes a party in a wow raid or a dungeon is turned into laughter and people try to desperately focus on what the enemies and their teammates are doing at the same time. I don't know how this will work with the random strangers of the interwebs but I think a rager is quickly kicked from the game -- that party pooper!
Definately not a game for humourless people, but I think Magicka has taken my 1st place as a awesome co-op experience. And it'll take some serious co-op fun to dethrone it.
Here's to hoping Magicka Vietnam will deliver the same, lan party on!
