This week we talk about the movie Citizen4 and issues with privacy in 2014.
We finally made it to the end of the year and that means we give you our BEST OF 2013 LISTS!!!!! These lists consist of our PERSONAL favorites in both movies and games, so these are our opinions and you may disagree. If you do, give us your list down in the comments. We would like to know if any of our choices are on your list. Enjoy the episode and thanks for listening!
So before Rick abandoned (more like escaped) us for Ryan (of the O’Leary variety) and flew all the way to New York, he virtually sat down with Bryce to record a review for his newly purchased Nexus 7. Bryce was there mostly because Rick wanted the company and because he enjoys talking to someone other than himself from time to time.
In all seriousness, Rick went to New York to help Ryan out with his upcoming film, The Backseat, and left the keys to the ever responsible Mike and the super dependable Bryce. Unfortunately, neither characteristic shined through this week because Mike and Bryce are the opposite of responsible and dependable. Actually, that is only half true since Mike was indeed responsible (watching the kids), but Bryce of course wasn’t dependable (couldn’t coordinate time to record). Needless to say, episode 074 of SSWL will consist solely of Rick’s Nexus 7 review. Luckily, the boys (minus Mike) rambled on for around 40 minutes, saving us from the embarrassment of not delivering a show for all of our loyal listeners. Without further ado, please enjoy this shortened (we like to call it “special”) edition of SSWL.
Back at full strength this week, the SSWL crew talked their asses off, so let’s cut right to the chase. Here is what we covered:
News – Skype hits the Vita
News – Bioshock for the Vita will be the focus after Infinite
News – Metal Gear Rising for the Vita spotted in developer presentation
News – Uncharted series turned into movies by a fan
News – Adam Sessler leaves X-Play and G4TV
Review – Cytus (iOS and Android)
Review – Trials: Evolution (XBOX Live Arcade)
This week it’s just the Bryce and Rick show. Mike will be back next week. For this episode we went semi-note less, so let us know what you think. Also, big thanks to @MilesFisher for letting us play his song “New Romance.” The video for the song is up for a Vimeo Award so check it out and support it with your votes!
