PieWorld: Spice Up Your Pies

I’m not one for mobile games. Farmville, Candy Crush Saga, Twilight Imperium, they all sorta passed me by. But when I’m feeling, sad and low, I can’t deny that they have the ability to take you where you want to go. PieWorld is the only mobile game I have, it’s got something kinda funny going…

WASDuk Review: Bomb City

The no name cast of stellar actors (Dave Davis, Glenn Morshower, Logan Huffman) separate Bomb City from the modern norm of claiming a film was based on a true story only to sugar coat it for consumption. Achievements such as Gus Van Sant’s Elephant and, now, Bomb City drag the audience into horrific, societal changing situations and force each viewer…

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 Ritual

It’s undeniable that once The Ritual ends you’ll feel short-changed. The film can be divided into three acts. It’s the first act where mates Luke, Phil, Hutch, Dom, and Robert are getting piss drunk and sorting out where they’ll mancation together that the film excels. When the friends wander into a liquor store they stumble upon a…

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: Godzilla – Planet of the Monsters (Part 1)

There’s a horrible disease that infects perfectly decent ideas (that eventually become shitty films). It’s known as StarWars-ism and, as we didn’t see in the Star Wars prequels, the Emperor tells the audience of the tale of Darth Plagueis. However, the audience doesn’t ever see Darth Plagueis and there’s no flashback. This is StarWars-ism at…

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…

SteamWorld Dig: A Fistfull of Dirt (Switch) Review

I owe my soul to the company store Darkness creeps closer as the light from my lamp fades, but I continue to chip away against the rock in front of me anyway. 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…

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition release date confirmed

If Nintendo has taught us anything, it’s that nostalgia sells. Combine nostalgia with an actually good game and it’s a recipe for success. Age of Empies, the game that defined a generation, has been worked on to bring us Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, a remaster worthy of the classic. Originally slated for release in…

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.…
