Magicka: Wizard Wars - Overview video

Magicka: Wizard Wars has a clever way of letting you deal with abusive teammates — it lets you set them on fire.

It's got a lot of fascinating twists on the MOBA genre, including a streamlined main mode that eschews the numerous objectives games like League of Legends task players with accomplishing. All you have to do is kill the other team and capture their spawn points; and, if along the way, someone on your team tells you how terrible a team-player you are, you can just light them ablaze. Or freeze them. Or build a prison of stone around them. Or explode them with arcane energies. It's a feature we desperately need in every other game of its ilk.

In today's Overview of Magicka: Wizard Wars, Justin and I cast all sorts of forbidden spells, like the one Shaq casts in Kazaam that makes burgers fall from the sky. If you're wondering which elements you need to combine to recreate that classic scene, it's water, lightning and burgers.
