Some found footage on Cloverfield. Is the Star Trek prequel preview promising? The new Turok demo's a dinosaur. Bionic Commando in 2 dimensions. Plus, the boys review The Boys.
The enigmatic monster film, Cloverfield has finally been released. Steve knows this must be recorded, so he whips out his camera while Alex, Dan, and Jeff try to survive the attack (and the motion sickness).
Attached to that very same film is the brand new teaser for JJ Abrams' upcoming Star Trek prequel. Does it make the guys want to explore the universe with young Kirk, Spock, and Bones?
This week in Video Games:
Games based on the comic book character, Turok the Dinosaur Hunter, date back to the Nintendo 64, but it has been a while since they've been considered AAA. Alex, Dan, and Jeff check out the demo for the new PS3 Turok to see if it can recapture some of the series' former glory.
The guys have already weighed in on their anticipation for the upcoming 3D Bionic Commando game. But Capcom has even more in store for the series. Bionic Commando: Rearmed is a 2D remake for XBLA and PSN that might be ever more exciting to Totally Rad guys.
This Week in Comics:
One of Dan and Jeff's favorite comic books is The Preacher, by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. One of Ennis' newest projects is The Boys, which he promises will "out-Preacher Preacher". The guys all check out the first trade to see if it fulfills such high expectations. For in-depth discussion of Preacher be sure to watch iFanboy episode 51.
American Splendor artist, Ed Piskor's new self-published comic, Wizzywig, is based on real-life hackers of the late 70's. Alex, Dan, and Jeff let their geek flags fly as they're drawn in to the phone-phreaking adventure.

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.
