Wasduk Review: Oblivion 3031

If it were not for Black Panther, the most anticipated film to grace the big screen, that accolade would easily have gone to Oblivion 3031.  The remake of the cult classic Oblivion might have gone unnoticed were it not for the fandom’s tireless efforts to promote it. You may remember how in the closing stages…

WASDuk Review: The Cloverfield Episodes

Each episode in the Cloverfield film series has had an amazing viral marketing campaign behind it. The original and first Cloverfield (2008) sent the masses heads spinning through the previews, which highlighted the Statue of Liberty’s face bouncing down a New York street, and so began some truly rampant rumors. Was Cloverfield actually a Godzilla film? Were the giant aliens invading…

WASDuk Review: Battle Angel / Gunnm

The trailer for the upcoming James Cameron produced and live-action take of Alita: Battle Angel lit quite the spark of curiosity among fans of all movie genres. The Anime legions in particular have posted numerous videos across every social media platform to give their own takes on why 1993’s Gunnm (aka Battle Angel) is so very important. The diatribes in these videos…

WASDuk Review: Gotham by Gaslight

The new animated feature from WB/DC continues a welcome change and direction for fan boys as well as those put off by the latest DC live-action duds: return to the superior animated features of the 90’s! Gotham by Gaslight, a vastly better product than the 1989 one shot comic it’s based on, vaults Batman back…

Something squirms in the ever-encroaching shadows of SteamWorld Dig: A Fistful of Dirt’s randomly generated mine, but this is no time to worry about…

Japan bids to introduce competitive e-sports

If you’re like me you watch the Olympics and wondering why you aren’t a competitive figure skater while shovelling a particularly gravy-laden steak and kidney pudding and starting an eighteen-hour Crash Bandicoot binge. Well good news, there might be an Olympic sport to suit our unique talents as Japan tries to legalise esports, with the…

Nintendo puts own head down shitter yet again

In a move less shocking than a jog around an insulated room in rubber shoes, Nintendo has proved the “nintend cycle” is an unfortunate reality, and begun their push for weird, gimmicky peripherals made out of cardboard rather than wasting any money on a new F-Zero game or that Metroid title that’s gonna be a…

Let Them Come PS4 review

If the bad times are coming… Let Them Come takes the best part of most shooters ‘the turret sections’, and dispenses with all that unnecessary running, gunning and ducking behind shoulder high walls. You stand, you shoot annnd that’s it; An angry space marine, a bloody big turret, and a corridor full of angry aliens.…

BrawlOut (PC) Review: Crack Open A Boy With The Cold Ones

Dig, if you will, a brawler. There’s going to be some very, very obvious comparisons here, which I am going to tiptoe around if only because they are entirely redundant. Let’s face it, dear reader. You don’t play a brawler game because you want out of this world storytelling or gameplay that leaves Smash in…

ELEX (PC) Review: It Gets Better After Season 3

Okay so. We’ve all had those folks that we know, who try and sell us on a TV show, or a manga, or something similar. And they warn you that it gets better, you know – once you get through the troublesome first season or first eight chapters or whatever. Alright, you might say. Can…
