Will GTA IV's new DLC make you feel Lost and Damned? The PS3 gets Flower power! Can an animated documentary work? Movie trilogies ranked! Plus, Jeff v. Alex at the Puzzle Quest release party!
This week in Movies:
Alex, Dan, and Jeff discuss a very unique film this week, the Best Foriegn Language Oscar nominee, Waltz with Bashir. Is it possible a documentary in Hebrew about a war in Lebanon can actually be... cool?
The guys debate the merits of this chart, which tries to graph the relative qualities of several major film trilogies. Is it geek science or weak sauce?
This week in Video Games:
Two major downloadable releases this week. First, That Game Company's gorgeous, sanguine antidote to dark, violent shooters, Flower. Will Alex, Dan, and Jeff be dazzled by its simple beauty, or yearn for more substance?
Then, the ultimate violent, adult video game series, Grand Theft Auto, gets a new main character with the download-only add-on, The Lost and Damned. Is it a bold new direction or more of the same?
As possibly the world's most outspoken Puzzle Quest fans, Alex, Dan, and Jef just HAD to be at the fan appreciation/launch party for Puzzle Quest: Galactrix. And what better place to try the out the new game's versus mode than in a Dippin' Dots-fueled throwdown?

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.
