Available at the lowest, truly pay-what-you-want level are a few single player games along with Magicka, which comes with The Other Side of the Coin expansion and the Horror Props item pack. There's also a platypus robe for Magicka: Wizard Wars. Yes, platypus robe. Like you don't have one hanging on your bathroom door right now.

Magicka and all DLC on Sale for $5Taylor Killian

If you haven't heard of Magicka until now (hence why you never bought it), prepare to enter the perpetual circle of Friendly-Fire. Sure, it all starts out innocently enough, with your party banding together to waste fools with otherworldly powers. Of course, you might get caught up in all the action and accidentally fling a lightning blast where your buddy is running, only to watch in horror as his teeny wizard head pop like a juice-filled balloon. He respawns and everybody has a good chuckle. Only to find him "accidentally" turning your guy to ash. Thus the cycle begins: finding creative ways to "accidentally" waste each other before it turns into a real blood bath.

Our abilities in Magicka are unmatched, we flawlessly remembered every spell in the book. Casting the likes of healing shields, flaming rock walls, and beams filled with lightning and dark magic - we rampaged through fields and forests destroying every orc and goblin in our path.

Magicka: Dungeons & Gargoyles continues and concludes the Dungeons & Daemons expansion with more of what's made the game so great these past few years. Stuck in the all-new city of Old Aldrheim, the wizards are desperately searching for a way home, all while new enemies keep attacking them and stuff. It isn't very polite, but the wizards with all their elemental mixings aren't very polite, either.

It's kind of hard for me to believe it, but Magicka (the quirky, and hilarious, craft-your-own-spell RPG) turns two next week. Time certainly flies. To celebrate, Paradox is offering not only a free weekend for gamers, but also free DLC for players who already own the game. During this weekend, you'll be able to download and play the game for absolutely free. It's currently available on Steam, and the free play will extend until Sunday 1pm PDT. The game is also discounted down to $2.49 from $10 until Monday.

Magicka was released almost two years ago and despite a troubled launch the game got solid reviews and then a steady stream of both free and premium DLC.  Today the game continues to get content to keep folks coming back for the four player co-op spell weaving mayhem.  The new content is called Dungeons & Daemons and looks to be themed in the realm of dungeon crawlers with plenty of dark underground passages and of course...barrels.  Also included with the content are new monsters and obstacles.

  The robed wizards of Magicka will not be attending San Diego Comic Con. They had a run in with a Necromancer from their "Other Side of the Coin" DLC. The following video may be the last we see of the mustard wizard. As you can see from the images above and below, the video is not lacking in the ball-gag and gold-trimmed...

This evil expansion allows you to play as Alucart and his Necromancer lackeys. Your mission is to make life miserable for humans, dwarves, and elves. Sounds simple enough. Watch the evil-doers in the following video.

Are you sick of playing as a good guy wizard who is constantly  killing his own friends (accidentally)? Why not play as a bad guy vampire and kill everything, including your own Necromancers (sort-of accidentally)? A new Magicka content pack will give you that opportunity. "The Other Side of the Coin" will let you turn your deadly magic upon puny humans, repugnant dwarves, and tree-hugging elves. Bring a friend or three and set the world on fire. Or freeze it. Or whatever. It's your choice.

While people could have stuck around a bit longer during our recent Co-Op Night (bunch of sleepy heads!), Magicka continues to be one of the more popular games on Steam. The DLC alone has sold over 4 million pieces on top of the main game's 1.3 million sales (I'm sure the Steam holiday sale prices didn't hurt). Naturally, Swedish fish developer Paradox Inreractive is following up with another expansion: 'The Other Side of the Coin.' The twist: it lets players take on the role of the bad guys for a change. That's all I need to know - I've been wanting to beat up on the robed do-gooders for a while now.
