I know I know, I never post. That is how important I felt it was to warn everyone: Magicka is NOT a game for Couples. I also REFUSE to endorse this game, unless you actually were already thinking of stabbing your husband, or sending bombs to friends, or think you should send your child to bed without dinner. DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME WITH ANYONE YOU WANT TO KEEP A RELATIONSHIP WITH!
Are we clear on this?
Now, if for some reason you’re still determined to play this game with friends, I understand. It’s an AWESOME game, and for about $5 on steam, TOTALLY worth it. It has like a bazillion levels (), a great storyline, and so many possibilities!
For those that don’t know – this is a wonderful game. It’s a top-down dungeon crawler, essentially. You are given 8 types of spells, and you can combine these 8 in almost endless (Okay, a little less than 8^5) combinations to create spells. Protection spells, healing spells, resurrection spells, torando spells, rain spells, and, of course, damage spells. Its Endless hours of fun to play on your own, exploding trolls and freezing then electrocuting fantastic germanic folklore myths. The writing is hilarious, and the controls, after some getting used to, are well thought out. It is just simply _FUN_.
But, it comes with a multiplayer option.
And here is where I tell you: Don’t Give In.
And if you do give in, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, STOP CASTING WATER, FIRE, OR ELECTRICITY!!
If you do Electricity, WE ALL GET SHOCKED.
If you do Fire, WE ARE ALL ON FIRE.
And if, heaven forbid, I _AM_ on fire, DO NOT put me out by getting me wet over & over again Because… If I’m WET, I CAN’T REZ YOU & JUST END UP SHOCKING MYSELF OVER & OVER AGAIN!
Seriously. I Swear to Odin, if one more person electrifies me, I WILL be sending them pre-electrified forks. I’m looking at you, @Chiaslut.
