10 Characters who can’t catch a break

Video game characters, especially protagonists never have it easy. Unless you’re playing Goat Simulator, coz that guy has it made. But games thrive off conflict, constant conflict so your standard character is going to subjected to a round of character developing trials, followed by another round and another round and another round. And if they’re…

10 great PC games made awesome with mods

We should stop kidding ourselves with all this “PC gaming master race” bullshit; there are two main reasons anyone owns a gaming PC.  The first is so that we can bore the living arse off people by talking about FPS,  FXAA and refresh rates as though they actually matter for shit.  The second is motherfucking…

10 most unlikely ideas for LEGO games

With the news that Traveller’s Tales have another brick-based bonanza in the pipeline (namely LEGO Jurassic World), we’ve been thinking.  There are tons of great movies and movie franchises out there that deserve the kind of homage that can only come from being completely remade in everyone’s favourite Danish fun-block.   For a start, there’s Back…

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,…
