    This game sounds like it would be perfect for a dual monitor set up with a browser window open with the spell list up.

    I like that you can combine a bunch of spells together to make new ones. Oh, and you can set yourself on fire and electrocute yourself (electrocuting yourself requires that you went in water first). I will pick this up eventually so I can mess around with the magic and kill things. Reminds me a whole lot of Gauntlet with 4 player combat and more focus on the combat rather than loot gathering.

    The spider in the otherwise humorous “why Magicka got delayed” video scared me away but the promise that combining 8 magics (sans oppositions and whatnot) is pretty alluring.

    I just bought this game, only to have it not run on my laptop!!! This is rediculous. My laptop is very powerful, and can run most games on high settings at 50 fps, but noooooo, can’t run Magika because they didn’t optimize!

    This game has alot of bugs and issues but the devs are constantly working on it and releasing patches and fixes. Despite these technical issues the game is incredibly fun to play , especially with a group of friends over skype or team speak
