Magicka has been patched, correcting a number of small issues and prepping the magical blast-a-thon for the most recent DLC release. But mainly why I’m telling you this is because the patch notes are significantly less boring than the usual title update run down, and act as an excellent advertisement for the game and its community. You can read them in full on Steam.
Thanks, PC Gamer.

Paradox Interactive and Arrowhead Game Studios have released another live-action video for The Other Side of the Coin, the expansion to Magicka. Apparently, the magicians got themselves “stuck in the middle of an incident with an overzealous member of Alucart’s necromancers.” You can figure out what that is below. The Other Side of the Coin will allow players to don the robes of the bad guys Alucart the Vampire and his necromancer henchmen, and slap around the goodie-two-shoes of the Magicka world. The Other Side of the Coin is available through Steam and GamersGate, and other digital retailers. Play it.
