I just wanted to give a heads up to any and everyone that is interested in Starhawk  about some dates for the multi-player beta. If you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you are a lucky one and have been playing since January 17th. If you’re one of the few. . .million that purchased a new copy of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, like me, then you are able to jump in RIGHT NOW. Finally, if you’re part of the general public, then you are in on February 21st. So, now that you have all this information, whichever group you are a part of, download the beta, give them feedback, and enjoy the game. I know I am.

On SSWL this week, Rick threw a curveball at us and decided to not really have a format for the movies section. We took a swing at it and hit a solid stand-up triple in my opinion. . .maybe a home run. You be the judge and let us know. After that we had two movie reviews, Flix We Pix, and video game news. All in all, it was a blast and we might have to be a little more free wheelin’ in future episodes.

MOVIES
News – Oscar nominees
Review – Haywire
Review – Underworld: Awakening

FLIX WE PIX
Rick – Billy Madison
Mike – Strange Brew
Bryce – Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

In the first half of this Super Happy Fun holiday edition of SSWL, Ryan O’Leary and Francis Sky join us and explain what they loved about 2011. Then we get down to brass tacks and shared our own top five movies and games of the year. With our lists out of the way, we went through some very complicated math (fucking addition) and calculated the Some Shit We Like movie and game of the year (Please note that the calculations included only the lists of Rick, Mike, and Bryce).

Major thanks  go out to both Ryan O’Leary and Francis Sky for joining us this week. Please be sure to keep up with Ryan at ryanolearyfilms.com and @thebloodymess on Twitter. As for Fran, you can web-stalk him on the official Facebook page for The Massacre Twins as well as @massacre_twins on Twitter.

We have had a great time doing the show this year and an equal amount of enjoyment came out of individually creating and sharing these lists with you. All that being said, please sit back, relax, and enjoy our final show of 2011!
