Procrastination Amplification: Punditry on MMOs and games in general.

Quickie: Magicka: Vietnam

So today was meant to be “Ten bad things about Rift”-day, but this announcement is just too odd (Should I say awesome? I don’t really know.)  to not post about it. As the title of the post suggests, the first Magicka expansion is going to be Magicka: Vietnam. Yeah, that’s right – the cute (and pathologically destructive) wizards from Magicka will be transported to “modern day” (you know, sometime in the 60s or so) Vietnam in order to blow stuff up. Complete with machine guns and napalm. Yeah that could be considered “a bit daring“.

I’m not going to pass judgement on whether this whole thing is politically correct (hell, who am I kidding: it isn’t) or whether it should be, but it is quite the PR stunt. Have a look at the trailer below for what to expect. It is quite hilarious.
