Ship Simulator Extremes Collection and New Magicka DLC Released

Posted on June 19, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

Paradox Interactive has announced the release of two titles today. The first is the Ship Simulator Extremes Collection which includes the base game and all of its 6 DLCs.  This collection will allow land lubbers to be the skipper on ships ranging from puny dingies to gargantuan cargo vessels. The press release promises hundreds of hours of gameplay and several real world ports, hopefully most of those promised hours won’t involve being stuck in St. Paul Island‘s dock because of ice. The collection also includes a revamped mission editor and 24 player online multiplayer (I shudder to think of the traffic jams).

The other title is a new DLC for Magicka titled The Other Side of the Coin. This DLC lets players take on the role of “Alucart the Vampire,” who is totally different from various vampires named Alucard. For one thing, Alucart’s name ends with a T rather than a D. Furthermore, he’s got some necromancer buddies and a mission to destroy everything that is good and wholesome in Magicka’s universe (if there is anything wholesome in a series that practically encourages you to “accidentally” kill your friends).

You can view trailers for both titles after the jump.Read More


Magicka Collection Giveaway

Posted on May 23, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

The news about the Dead Island Game of the year Edition made me nostalgic for countless cooperative games from the halcyon days of 2011. Well, we don’t have copies of Dead island to give out, but we do still have some keys for Magicka, an excellent cooperative game where you can “accidentally” kill the other players. You will find Steam keys for the Magicka collection hidden in our articles, Twitter, Steam group, or Facebook page.

We’d like to thank Paradox Interactive for the free keys.


Daily Giveaway: Magicka May Day

Posted on May 1, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

I hope that you have all survived Walpurgis Night unscathed and are ready for an excellent first of May. In the past, the first of May was May Day, a springtime festival. It’s also International Workers’ Day. This year is different. May 1, 2012 will be remembered (by a few of you) as the day that began Broken Joysticks’ epic month of game giveaways and contests.

Most of the staff of Broken Joysticks are somewhat puzzled by what the May Day was all about. However, I have it on good authority that it involved wizards, breaking the fourth wall, and accidentally crushing your friends with magic rocks. Thus, we shall commemorate May Day by giving out three steam codes for the Magicka Collection. You may find them hidden in our articles, twitter account, or our steam group.

Directions for activating the game on steam and a trailer may be found after the jump.
