The Shelf rings in the new year by waxing nostalgic about 2010’s best and worst games and movies, and talk about what we’re looking forward to in 2011. Will and Zack are joined by Emily and our old friend Lucas for this best/worst of ought ten show. The episode also has the distinction of being the only podcast you’ll ever hear successfully segue between Gaspar Noé’s brutal Enter the Void and Pixar’s heartwarming Toy Story 3. To read more of our favourites be sure to check out our recently published “Best of 2010” lists.
