Geekdipointment - Civilization Revolution, Heavy Rain, Death Race, The Pit and the Pendulum, and DIY T-Shirts!

We get a little culture with Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution. Our context gets sensitive in the Heavy Rain trailer. Garbage or gory genre goodness from Death Race? Plus, we make our own shirts!

This week in Movies:

Alex, Dan, and Jeff throw caution to the wind and drive headlong into Death Race, the new mindless action film from Paul W.S. Anderson. Is it good, old-fashion high-octane fun, or insipid tripe unfit for viewing by humans? One thing's for sure, it will tear the guys apart!

There is a new stop-motion adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's The Pit and the Pendulum, produced by special effects legend, Ray Harryhausen. The guys take the opportunity to discuss the state of stop-motion in film.

This week in Video Games:

The wildly popular Civilization series has been redesigned for the console market. Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution takes the turn-based strategy of Civilization IV and streamlines it, making the game more accessible to a wider audience. Alex, Dan, and Jeff leap in, and find that "educational" isn't the opposite of "fun".

The developers of Indigo Prophecy (or Fahrenheit outside the US), have a new PS3-exclusive adventure game in the works, which looks to combine spectacular graphics with emotional, thrilling storytelling. The guys take a look at the recently released new" target="_blank">trailer for Heavy Rain and give their thoughts.


What happens when Alex, Dan, and Jeff decide to make their own t-shirts? Yep, it is much more difficult than they thought it would be - and not for the reasons you might think!
