After a long break from saving the world, we are back and we brought a friend! Francis Sky of Flash Flood Media joins us to talk about the shit we liked this week and his experience at the premier of ‘The Devil’s Carnival.’ Enjoy this captivating tale of our adventures and survival!
After everything that has happened in his past, Rick is running from the Gotham police with no where to hide. Suddenly, the sky turns green and Mike hits the scene to bail Rick out. Rick is not the only one running. With a quick change from red and blue spandex to blue jeans and a shirt, Bryce is being hunted by Lex Luther and General Sam Lane? Whoa, looks like Earth 2 just collided with Earth Prime. While we get Flash to run backwards to fix this mess, here is what happened in this week’s show:
News – Wally Pfister read for his directing debut
News – Josh Trank in talks to direct a Venom Movie
News – Christina Hendricks phone hacked = Sexy Pictures
Review – Project X
Review – John Carter
Review – Motorstorm RC (PS Vita)
Review – Touch My Katamari (PS Vita)
Early Impressions – MLB 12: The Show
Review – SSX
Well we might be a week late, but we’re kicking off 2012 with a bit of a different version of Some Shit We Like. The new year (as is usually the case) is slow out of the gate with very little, shall we say, fresh shit for us to like and discuss amongst ourselves. However, never being at a loss for words, we improvised and presented what we were most looking forward to in the year to come of video games and film. Also, good friend of the show, Ryan O’Leary, joined us and shared his latest projects, Snack Shack and Jesus Christ! 2!!, much to our delight. Finally, for good measure, there is always our usual banter and randomness, but you’ll just have to listen for more on that.
Otherwise, here’s a glimpse of what else awaits in our first show of the year:
News – Starhawk’s potentially new and surprising DLC strategy
News – Kaz Hirai soon becoming president of Sony
News – Gran Turismo 5 XL releases January 17th with $20 DLC voucher
News – UFC on Xbox Live FAIL, promises future free access…again (only to those who registered for free access of UFC 141)
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!
In this shocking episode of SSWL, we all admit to watching and enjoying Spice World. Also, Bryce is back, so we are once again at full strength. Here’s what we ranted and raved about this week:
