10 Classic Pokemon Fan Theories

We at WASDuk do enjoy a good fan theory. Although sometimes downright weird or far fetched, a good fan theory can capture the imagination and enhance a game, maybe even improve on it. The larger a game’s universe the more theories can spring up, obviously. The world of Pokemon is constantly expanding and with it…

10 free indie games that are better than most AAA titles

Gaming is a large part of our lives, but sometimes, we get tired of the hype and the spectacle, the sneakily-crafted ‘in-game footage’ and the outright lies.  We yearn for something simpler and more humble, yet just as engrossing.  It’s at times like this that we are reminded of the great developers that (sometimes single-handedly)…

10 Video game occupations vs IRL jobs

When we play a video game, we’re doing it for the escapism. No one wants to play Desk Clerk Adventure 2012: A Problem with Calendars or Call Centre 3, but most games contain a job that appears in the real world. Unless you’re playing one of the endless Simulator games even the most standard job…

10 most definitive Batman moments

There’s no point trying to deny it.  We all have, at some point in our lives pretended to be Batman.  For most of us, it’s a regular childhood game that we eventually grow out of when bedsheets don’t quite cover us like they used to.  For some of us, it’s something that three South Wales…

10 most annoying things about video games

We all love video games.  So much so, that on a planet of near-infinite possibility, where the only thing to hold us down is the infinitely-vast limit of our imagination, we can think of no better way to spend an afternoon than to plonk ourselves down in front of a small box and play Sim…

10 Horrifying Inspirations for Pokemon

Pokemon are inspired by all manner of creatures; real, not so real and definitely not real but with a hint of magic about them. We have Rattata inspired by, of all things – the common rat. There’s Moltres, based very obviously on the Pheonix that pervades a great number of mythologies across the world or…

10 minecraft mods no player should be without

For many of us, the party is over.  When we bought Minecraft back in the day, we did it so that we could tour other player’s creations, be they large-scale models of the starship Enterprise, or something a little more..crude.  But, ’twas all in good fun, nonetheless.  Then, we would set about destroying the creations…

10 Unexpected Gaming Moments

In the big wide world of storytelling we can all think of moments that have utterly blown our minds. But sometimes equally impressive (or disappointing) are the moments that we really weren’t expecting, where a story builds up and takes U turn leaving us pleasantly surprised or thoroughly annoyed [delete as appropriate]. Join WASDuk as…

10 Perfect Poptronica Songs to Improve Your Gaming

In the 80′s and early 90′s, certain school-cliques gravitated towards each other based purely on musical tastes. There were the Headbangers, the Country Folk, a weird annual outbreak of flavor of the week aficionados that would summon putrid demons from the bowels of hell, like New Kids on the Block, Milli Vanilli, or Rick Astley,…

10 videogame weapons that wouldn’t work in the real world

We’ve all had THOSE moments.  The ones where you’re bored out of your mind in a queue, waiting room, traffic jam or funeral and you can’t help but imagine picking up the nearest object to hand, and laying waste to everything and everyone within a half-a-mile radius, possibly with a smattering of explosions and one…

10 worst places to live in videogames

We have stopped kidding ourselves about the possibility of leaving the house again.  It’s horrible out there, with chemtrails, and giant rats and those people who keep asking if you’ve had an accident in the last three years.  It’s only really when we check our connection speed that we remember that we even HAVE a…

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…

10 Video Game Love Stories That Never Were

And Valentine’s Day fades into memory for another year. Initially I thought that Valentine’s Day would be the perfect time to celebrate the loving couples in video games. Their struggles and their sacrifices rewarded with a happy ending have taught us that the path of love rarely runs smoothly, but that true love conquers all,…

10 Awesome Video Game Fan Theories

  If there’s one thing a lot of story based video games have in common, it’s that we can usually spend a great deal of time discussing why we think certain things are happening. Mostly these theories are just fans thinking, ‘wouldn’t it be cool if…’ but every now and then comes a theory that…

10 Awesome Video Game Speeches

Like all aspects of gaming, video game dialogue has been improving beyond the robotic, synthesised one liners of the 80s to fluid speeches that enhance and add to some already excellent story telling. Good dialogue can have us reeling from the profound implications, ready to lay down our lives in a suicide mission or just…

10 WTF Video Game Endings

Traditionally a game’s ending is what you most look forward to. It is your hard earned reward for all those bosses you’ve fought, all them people you have saved and for generally being awesome enough to complete the game. Of course occasionally there are games that dash all your hopes and dreams and leave you…
