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”
As ASV Film Editor Christine Pham continues to breathe the same air as Marty O’Donnell, I’m watching it live from the stale, celebrity-less oxygen of my room. Join me by heading to Twitch right now, but if you can’t, keep checking back here as the winners are named! (and where my predictions are wrong!)

It was a dark and stormy night.
As soon as midnight struck, I’d finally have the game I’d been eagerly anticipating for well over a year. I was excited and ready for a whole new experience. But something didn’t feel right. Something felt wrong.

Probably no one will appreciate this besides Brian, but check out this nifty graphic that Redditor KyotorIndustries came up with, pointing out the similarities between Bungie’s Destiny and Sonic Team’s Phantasy Star Online (one of the GOATs, in my opinion).
Continue reading Destiny Star Online? How Vexing!
Bungie’s newest game, Destiny, has been extremely divisive amongst gamers. There’s a lot to like, but there’s also a lot to hate. In this quick review, I’ll summarize my own opinions on the game in the form of a sandwich.
Continue reading Destiny: The Sandwich Review
As we wait with bated breath for Game Editor Brian’s official Destiny review (which, I am told, is going to be a delicious Compliment Sandwich), this Music Monday is bringing you some of the game’s seriously awesome tunes. From gentle piano to mystic vocalizing to face-melting guitar, Destiny’s OST really and truly delivers.
The soundtrack (which was officially released by Bungie last Friday) was composed by Michael Salvatori, C Paul Johnson, Martin O’Donnell (hail Hydra), and Paul McCartney.

Five days and counting!

Only four months remain in 2014. Where has the year gone? It seems like it was just last night at 3 AM that I was clawing and scratching at the infernal allergy-induced itch inside my throat and ears and eyes and nose. Oh right. That was last night. And if you must know, the ensuing insomnia resulted in my driving out to Bai Wei and gorging on Chicken Lo Mein. It was not a pretty sight.
But you know what is? The 2014 calendar for new TV, movies, music, games, and books. Below are the most anticipated entertainment releases as chosen by us at Always Sometimes Villains. Let us know what you’re looking most forward to in the comments below, and feel free to add anything we might have missed!
