WASDuk Reviews Decay: The Mare (PC Steam)

It’s 2005, and I’ve just finished watching Syriana, starring George Clooney and some guy named Matt Damon. The movie is excellent, a mixed bag of thrilling treats that drew shocks about the powerlessness of governments once horror scenarios wedge their way into normal life. However, many panned the flick for being “too smart”. The same may be…

Lootcrate review: February 2015 “Play”

It’s that time of the month again. The time when Fantaesque and Arkworthy barricade the door and watch the road for the postman, only to throw buckets of noxious fluids from the upstairs window, in the hopes that he’ll turn around and never darken our doorstep again. Which probably isn’t the most positive note that…

iOS/Android Review: Naughty Kitties

It’s therapy gaming that’s pure adrenalized syrup without the cathartic wait time of boring grinding. Coconut Island Games Limited has created the sleeper iOS/Android hit of 2015, and it uses the meows of feline battle prowess to warn us of desperate aliens while the player crazily swipes cat marines on and off of a hyperactive…

Never Alone Review: The Northern Lights are Trying to Kill Me!

Some games just feel important, Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) is one of those games. On the surface it’s a relatively simple 2D puzzle platformer in the mould of previous indie darlings such as Limbo, Braid and millions of other imitators.  It combines simple platforming with the occasional physics puzzle to test the old noodle and…

Lootcrate review: January 2015 “Rewind”

  It’s time again for lootcrate, and that means it’s time once again for our less-than-intrepid looters Fantaesque and Arkworthy to tear into a small box of toys and complain rigorously about them.  This month’s theme is “rewind”, and promises to be either filled with retro-themed goodies, or an old VHS tape that someone has,…

Mexican’t Standit – Grim Fandango: Re-mastered PC review

Oh dear.  This is going to be a difficult one.  You see, anyone that’s actually excited about Grim Fandango: Re-mastered is very likely to be a fan of the 90’s classic, and for good reason.  It’s one of those games which is legendarily hard to criticise.  The storyline, setting, gameplay and soundtrack are damn near…

WASDuk Review: WWE Immortals

When WB, DC, and NetherRealm teamed up to unleash the mobile version of Injustice, they hit the ground running and were wildly successful. Is it any wonder that NetherRealm has now joined forces with the superstars of the WWE in an attempt to duplicate the same fortune? And, let’s just emphasize that point: WWE Immortals is simply a…

Saints Row IV Re-Elected Review: PS4 MORE YEARS!

Saints Row IV was easily one of my favourite games of 2013; funny, irreverent and a hell of a lot of fun. A big, dumb unapologetic satire of popular culture’s current obsession with superheroes that happily jumped the shark whilst dressed as a hot dog. I’m not one for repeating myself, and since Re-elected offers…

Fluster Cluckers

Fluster Cluck Review: Microwave Meal for Four

The hardest reviews to write are those for games that are completely unremarkable. They’re not good, they’re not bad. They’re just bland. And it’s into this category that Loot game’s Fluster Cluck falls. The premise is probably the most interesting thing about the game. You work for Chikken Corp. an intergalactic fast food conglomerate that…
