Android Virtual Reality is here

When I first laid my hands on the Oculus Rift, I was stunned. Finally, the childhood dream of ‘proper’ virtual reality was tangible and within reach! Sure, you could count each pixel. The audio required separate headphones and the peripheral vision could be better. There was also a problem with the refresh rate, which made…

Pokken Tournament: Can’t Catch ’em All. Because Nintendo.

An unspeakable amazeballs in Japan has given birth to a new team-up that has created quite the stir in the gaming community: Pokemon and Tekken. It was predictable that the debuting savage battle between Lucario and the four-armed Machamp last August would inspire a crisis of confidence in the Eastern/Western media: will the roster satisfy all…

They Are Not Exactly Avengers

  Kevin Feige had a few things to say in relation to Spider-Man and the Marvel cinematic universe as a whole. Feige and Pascal’s cash cow collection of not-exactly-the-comic efforts have been a bit ambiguous at times, but basically Feige and company have declared that freeing characters is a fundamental nerd right, but not an absolute one. “We always…

Superman’s New Flare

To begin with the end, Superman has a new suit! Ta-dah! Fin. Just kidding- even though the new suit, which made its little turn on the catwalk on the last page of this week’s Superman issue #38, looks suspiciously like his previous New 52 attire, fans are kryptonian-ing about the other surprise in the issue: Superman…

iOS/Android Injustice: Don’t Fear the Glitcher

I read a lengthy explanation and watched several videos about The Glitch last night, and hated it slightly less than I expected to. Like most kooky glitches – and I like some glitches, like back in the day when Silver Green Arrow and Superman’s “ice” attacks would freeze the opponent indefinitely, for the most part – it’s…

The Conceptual Injustice of Champions: DC vs. Marvel

In 1982, Marvel released a three-issue story arc called Contest of Champions. Over three decades later, that story arc has been saved from days of future past in order to allow super-hero fanatics the opportunity to use Marvel characters in a competent manner (No, Marvel vs. Capcom’s controls were ridiculously useless on mobile devices). This…

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…

The Flappy Bird Saga and What We Learned

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, let’s say a particularly dense rock that is impenetrable by mainstream media and news outlets, you will have heard the words Flappy Bird, probably repeatedly. Flappy Bird is now met with one of three reactions; a) “OMIGOD I WANT IT SO MUCH!!111oneone” b) “Yeah bitches I…

Infinite Crisis Reveals Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy is a classic example of how great the DCAU was and continues to be, especially Batman: The Animated Series, because it not only show-cases classic story arcs, but it also redefined some one-note villains into fan favorites. And, Poison Ivy was one of the luckiest villains. She went nuts and grew her own…

WASDuk Reports: The Insomnia gaming festival 50th LANiversary

This weekend showed the 50th LANiversary of the Insomnia gaming festival, and our WASDuk roving reporters were on hand to detail all the action as it unfolded. Upon entering, the most immediate difference between this and other gaming festivals is the wide diversity of attendees.  Everyone, from toddlers to pensioners on mobility scooters, seemed to…
