Mana Reservoir Dogs: Magicka’s Other Side Of The Coin

By Richard Cobbett on July 13th, 2012 at 7:00 pm.

Necromancers leave the worst hickies.

While it’s definitely about time to bid a fond farewell to Magicka’s colourful mages and their crazy spell-slinging ways, we can always find a moment for one of Paradox/Arrowhead’s live-action trailers. In The Other Side Of The Coin, you’re evil. Things are about to get… darkly.

Cthulhu to the left of me, Vietnam to the right, here I am, stuck into co-op with you…

Ahem. The Other Side Of The Coin is all about switching to the dark side, swapping the mostly-noble wizards of old for the vampire Alucart (It’s Tracula backwards) and his army of necromancers. It came out last month, but is inevitably part of the Steam Sale – on its own for £2.39, or as part of the complete Magicka Collection for £14.39.

    Goodness Richard, take a break! Have a cup of tea!

    I buy these just because of the live action trailers. I never actually played magicka in multiplayer.

  3. says:

    I’m guessing they put this out late to be there for the Steam sale. Maybe.

    Either way, Magicka is one of my favorite titles of the last year… and a half. I still pick it up occasionally.

    So, the safe-word isn’t ‘banana’?

  5. Tacroy says:

    I’m waiting for them to make a Magicka roguelike, it should be red-themed and called Going Rouge.

    I love Paradox/Arrowhead.

    Strangely erotic.

    This makes me think of this video.
