WASDuk Review: Kill Your Darlings

Word on the set was that first time director John Krokidas was screaming at Daniel Radcliffe to kiss Dane DeHaan as though they were having crazy fucking monkey sex. And its this type of shit-slinging vivacity that makes Kill Your Darlings one of the best films of 2013 that nobody watched. Radcliffe sheds his wizard’s skin to…

WASDuk Review: Son of Batman

When an unfamiliar antagonist going by the moniker of Phantasm took center stage in 1993′s Batman: Mask of the Phantasm the nerves wore thin until the Joker showed up. There is something historically refreshing about proven and familiar villains that the audience knows are important. When the viewers meet any new character, friend or foe, then chances…

10 Sequels We Could Do Without

Sequels are always going to be hit or miss. Games that warrant a sequel have usually enjoyed a measure of success and give the developers a chance to develop a story, improve on gameplay and generally fix any problems in the original. Unfortunately sometimes sequels just don’t work out. Games that enjoy immeasurable popularity will…

Yu-Gi-Oh Corner: Beating the XYZ monsters

We here at WASDUK are really not used to playing any card game that doesn’t end in nakedness, so it’s up to faithful WASDuk contributor and all-around awesome bloke John Brizuela to offer some handy hints on tackling Yu-Gi-Oh’s nastier cards, the XYZ monsters, with a gallery of all the cards used: Have you ever…

iOS/Android Injustice Challenge Stage: Wonder Woman 600

The big four (Darkseid, Wonder Woman 600, Containment Doomsday, Boss Solomon Grundy) have seen two of their members finally make the jump to the non-hacked mobile arena. Last month’s Challenge Stage made every Bronze-level character better, as Darkseid’s passive ability grants his minions the largest damage and health boosts in the game. Now, for April,…

The Women of the Three Kingdoms

March is National Women’s History Month, the theme of this month is ‘Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment’ which I’ve been writing about over on my other, more history orientated blog. While many video games take place in historical settings there aren’t a massive amount of games that specifically draw on historical events. Enter;…

iOS/Android Injustice: Tuesday’s Trinity (March 25th)

WASDuk brings you a large amount of coverage for your favorite DC/NetherRealm’s game. The primary reason is that the team strategies never stop evolving alongside new Challenge Stages each month and, also, the huge volume of fans that have made Injustice: Gods Among Us one of the greatest games in recent memory deserve a voice. Thus, every…

Flappy Bird to Fly Again

In mid-February we at wasduk looked at the lessons learned from the widely reported Flappy Bird saga, and we rather cynically chalked the whole episode up to excellent marketing. Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen decided to remove his exceptionally popular game Flappy Bird just days after it was released on Android for rather mysterious reasons. We…

WASDuk Review – Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher

The Punisher, otherwise known as Frank Castle, has never settled into a good cinematic adaptation. Writers, producers, and directors all struggle between balancing Frank Castle’s brand of justice with making him personable. The Punisher (voiced by Brian Bloom) is a vigilante who refuses to stop killing because his family was murdered by gangsters, which forged…

WASDuk Review: Haunt

Mac Carter doesn’t really give a shit. Or does he? The film industry is a different monster and a lot of people get stuck with projects so that they can earn credits or pay mortgages or fulfill contract burdens. Honestly, do you really think Forest Whitaker wanted to host the new Twilight Zone TV series…

Loading James Gunn: Slither vs Guardians of the Galaxy

James Gunn jumped back into the spotlight a few weeks ago when the first trailer for Disney/Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy debuted. Let’s face it though, when new superheroes transition to the live-action mold the director is most often overlooked. Did you know that Game of Thrones guy, Alan Taylor, did the last Thor flick? Huh. Why did it suck so…
