Scotland: “Votekick ‘England’”

Scotland: “Votekick ‘England’”

[This metaphor is a big fail, but bear with me.] You might be aware that on the Scotland server of the game commonly known as First Life, players have called a vote to kick the whole of England. As far as we can gather, Scotland claims there’s no way England could have so much stuff […]

Untitled Assault Squad 2 Post

Untitled Assault Squad 2 Post

Our last post got me thinking about suicide attacks and unfortunately I remembered an old draft I’d written about how much fun it is to play Japan in Assault Squad 2. It began with: ‘Suicide  – more than 60 years later this tactic is still a winner for Japan in Assault Squad 2. It pains […]

AVP 2000 Classic: An Alien’s Guide To Killing Predators.

AVP 2000 Classic: An Alien’s Guide To Killing Predators.

Alien Vs Predator is still the second best multiplayer deathmatch game, over 14 years after it was unintentionally developed by British company Rebellion.

Grim Dawn Multiplayer Checklist

It is by now an acknowledged ‘fact’ that Grim Dawn is the GREATEST ACTION-RPG OF ALL TIME. All time?? Well the past definitely, but since the game isn’t finished yet… it’s got a bit more credibility in the future than the present right now. Since everyone lives in the present, this is arguably the most […]

Assault Squad 2: Unexclusive Developer Interview

Assault Squad 2: Unexclusive Developer Interview

Assault Squad 2 doesn’t suck, which is a clear sign that its developer isn’t listening to the fanbase, marketing people or publishers. While this does have the the side effect of making the game intermittently functional with barely any players, that has never stopped it from being Wasders favourite game. So we were shocked today, […]
