    @3 Have you met Vlad? He is NOT a vampire.

    Really, Magicka is one of the most witty games out there. I rescued a village, and for my heroic actions the villagers gave me an M-60 machinegun (up until then it had been a fantasy game).

    Naturally, I killed all the villagers with said M-60, and the game gave me an achievement for it.
