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 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!

The Totally Rad Show is Revision3's explosion of movie, video game, TV, and comics news and reviews. TRS was born in the depths of geek culture, at an epic game of Dungeons and Dragons in 2006. Alex Albrecht, host of Revision3's Diggnation, and Dan Trachtenberg, former host of Revision3's Geekdrome, met Jeff Cannata, former video game columnist, at the D&D table, and became fast friends. Intense debates over Star Wars characters, late night frag-fests in Gears of War, Heroes- and Lost-watching parties, and the sharing of dog-eared copies of Preacher graphic novels followed, leading the guys to one clear realization: This is the stuff we love. This stuff is totally rad. Individually, Alex, Dan, and Jeff had always wanted to find a show that approached geek culture with as much fervor as they did, that wasn't embarrassed to roll dice or dress like Jedi, that realized that nerd is the new cool. Together, they decided to make it. But one component was still missing. Luckily, they turned to uber-video god and bona-fide geek in his own right, Steve Koncelik, to help create a look and feel that was as rad as the subject matter. Several months, and hundreds of exploding fist-pumps later, the Totally Rad Show debuted on Revision3. Four dudes in a garage. One green screen. A cubic ass-ton of enthusiasm. The Totally Rad Show is all about the feeling of sharing a great new movie, or video game, or tv show, or comic with your buddies. It is about the excitement in finding a piece of entertainment you love, or the pain in realizing something isn't as rad as you had hoped. It is about finding friends who share your interests and get just as excited as you do. If it is out there and it is Rad, it is on the Totally Rad Show.
