The Game Awards 2016! “Super Metalborne 3: The Wild Fallout”

HAI GUYS.

Tonight, the Game Awards 2015 will take place, this time in Los Angeles, at the Microsoft Theater. It’s been a mixed bag for video games this year (at least for me). Sort of like a bag of Chex Mix that you pick around in, eating only the super salty Chex pieces, and ignoring the gross  brown circle thingies that you just know have some sinister intent  that you can’t quite place.

For those too lazy to go to their official website: the Game Awards 2015 begins at 6 PM Pacific, and you can watch it on the usual channels (Twitch, Youtube, etc.)! Continue reading The Game Awards 2016! “Super Metalborne 3: The Wild Fallout”

This Is About a Game Called “Undertale.”

Here I am. Back from the land of the dead. How long has it been since I wrote something here? A year? Probably more. I ask myself why I am here. I don’t really know. I mean I DO know, but I uhh . . .

Look.

I will talk shortly about a game. A game I’ve just recently finished. There are no plot or story spoilers here but there are some out-of-context images that are visual spoilers; it would hurt me physically to spoil this game. Nope, and no tips or tricks on how to play it either. I’m not even reviewing it or rating it this is a review, Tyler, you idiot.

It is–without a doubt–the best game I’ve ever played.

Super Metroid: The Sandwich Review

Yes, after a long hiatus, I return to you with a Sandwich Review of the Nintendo’s Super Metroid! This was the first time I had ever played this game and only the second Metroid game I’d ever played (Metroid Prime being the first, which I never got around to finishing). With Super Metroid’s legendary fame, I expected it to be great, and I was not disappointed! But like all sandwiches, it isn’t perfect for every palate.

“Halo 5” Theme Music Leaked, And It’s Goddamn Beautiful

Between this, The Expanse, and Star Wars Episode VII, it’s a good time to be a fan of sci-fi. October 27 can’t come fast enough.

It’s great to hear Kazuma Jinnouchi (who remixed the soundtrack for the Halo 2 remaster) return to Martin O’Donnell’s iconic Halo themes, and in doing so, returning to the “mystical” feel that I tend to associate with the franchise. But, don’t get me wrong, the guy is still doing his own thing, particularly with the piano. Jinnouchi replaces Neil Davidge, who scored Halo 4.

Final Fantasy XV Demo: The Sandwich Review

Prime your toasters, ‘cuz it’s time for another ASV Sandwich Review! Your Sandwich Artist today, however, will not be the indefatigable Brian Pham, but rather his younger brother of lesser power (<9000). Today’s menu features the long-awaited demo for the long-awaited FIFTEENTH installment of Final Fantasy. That’s right: developer Square Enix has, over nearly 28 years, made 15 main Final Fantasy titles–only ONE of which can be considered a stinking pile of moogle crap. (Of course, I won’t say which, at the risk of angering fans of the game in question. Let’s just say the number is more than 12 but less than 14.) Now, to the sandwich!

Halo 5: Guardians Official Release Date + New Trailers

It’s official! 343 Industries has announced that Halo 5: Guardians will be available for purchase on October 27, 2015, a little over 6 months from now. I wouldn’t be surprised if that date was pushed back 3 weeks or so, but nor would I be too disappointed. Halo 5 will definitely be out this year. Check out the new live action trailers below, and join me in my hype/confusion. Hype-confusion. Hyfusion. Conype. I’ll stop now.
