10 Things Arkham Knight Got Dead Right

Arkham Knight’s tagline offered us one thing.  The chance to “Be The Batman”, and that’s basically all we ever really wanted.  Of course being The Batman, if you think about it for longer than a minute or so, would kind of suck.  Sure, the gadgets would be cool, smacking people with serious mental illnesses in the…

10 Older PC Games You’ll Want to Re-Install Right Now

Over-nostalgia is an easy trap to fall into.  The belief that everything was better back in the days when we were too young and stupid to recognise the cynical marketing ploy behind He-Man is a comforting one, however much of a lie it is.  Most cartoons existed solely to encourage children to nag their parents…

10 Insane things blamed on Video Games

Video games get a bum rap in the media. It’s very rare that you will ever see a mainstream media outlet praising video games for anything. Minecraft is used by schools and homeschoolers across the world as an educational tool but you won’t see anything about that in the media, because as any gamer worth…

10 Incredible Boss Themes

Game bosses are iconic and yet there is a divide between people. Are they still relevant, or a relic of the past? It’s true that as games become naturally more open, the extremely traditional and linear model of bosses begins to seem shoe-horned, unnecessary and takes you out of the world. Whilst I agree to…

10 problematic video games and their proposed revisions

I think, at this point, that we can all agree that video gaming is the most problematic form of media that has ever existed in the scope of human history.  If it weren’t for visionaries like Jim Sterling (the current desperate poster-fool of the SJW community) the bigoted trans-haters at Obsidian might never have been…

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].
