Son of Must-Have RiffTrax Shorts

The library of RiffTrax Shorts is a vast and confusing place.  It is one where you can hear the call of drugs, choking, and turkeys.  It can be hard to figure out why to spend your hard earned dollar (or two) on.  Don't worry though, because I am here to make it all okay.  And to help you make up your mind by showing you five more of the best of the best RiffTrax Shorts.

The Bottom Shelf: Canadian LTD Whiskey

The Bottom Shelf with Russ: Canadian LTD Whiskey

Welcome to The Bottom Shelf with Russ! I am back from camping in upstate Michigan, where we saw some great weather, beautiful countryside, and friendly residents.  This review of Canadian LTD Blended Canadian Whiskey however, is from late winter in Michigan, when even the winter loving people start thinking about spring.

Animal Crossing: Inception

Now you can visit my Animal Crossing: New Leaf town of Tamarin in your dreams.  Only if you've done the public work for the Dream Suite.  At least you can go to the island and farm beetles for an hour and get all of the bells you need for it.

I haven't tried to visit anyone's town in my dreams, but I wonder what would happen if you went in the Dream Suite in their town while you were in the dream version already.  We must go deeper!

Nintendo Download 6/20/13 - Farming Simulator 3D!

Farming Simulator 3dFarming Simulator 3d

Today is an exciting day for 3DS owners in America, because now we can finally download Farming Simulator 3D!  I can't think of a better game to download on the last day of spring than Farming Simulator 3D.

Other releases include Mega Man 6, Tails Adventure, BUGS vs. TANKS!, Game & Wario, and Project X Zone. Little Inferno and Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo are the two latest titles to have a sale price.  Oh, and there is also something having to do with Luigi and DLC... I don't know.  You can read the full list after the break.

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara is Finally Here!

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, one of my most anticipated digital releases of the year (and two of my all time favorite arcade games), is finally here!  The game is available today for $14.99 on Steam, Xbox Live Arcade (for 1200 MS Points), and PlayStation Network here in the US, and tomorrow for €14.99/£11.99 in Europe.  The title is also coming to the Wii U "soon after", but unfortunately, no release date has been announced yet.  That makes it kind of a bummer for me, because I have funds sitting in my eShop account on my Wii U waiting to be spent on this game.

You can watch the trailer after the break.

Review: Pop-Tarts Gone Nutty!

New Pop-Tarts: Gone Nutty Review

As the name of the site might imply, I'm a pretty big fan of things involving peanut butter.  That's why, when the new Pop-Tarts Gone Nutty! flavors were announced, I was pumped.  I was actually double pumped, because as you all know, I kinda of have a thing about Pop-Tarts.  After weeks of searching, I finally found both flavors!  Once again, it involved going into Walmart (ugh), but it netted me some of the best GMO-filled breakfast pastries ever created.

The Bottom Shelf: R&R Canadian Whiskey

Bottom shelf whiskey, we love the price, and hate the taste!

The Bottom Shelf WIth Russ - Rich and Rare Canadian Whiskey

My quest, my challenge, is to explore the bottom shelf to see if there are any whiskeys with redeemable value. R&R Canadian Whiskey is such a rare and rich discovery.  Nothing suits me better than lampooning poor whiskey, but I find myself unable to do that with R&R.  I used a mix of diet cola and R&R whiskey at a one to one ratio and I settled back to watch the Detroit Lions at my brother-in-law's man cave/garage on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf: Life in Tamarin

My first few days in Animal Crossing: New Leaf have turned me into a slasher movie psycho.  Let me bring you up to speed:

I moved in to Tamarin a few days ago, and was instantly named Mayor.  Like a tool, I forgot to get a picture of any part of the ceremony, but I did get a snapshot of the train bringing me into town.

Nintendo Direct: E3 2013 - Mega Man Edition

If you missed this morning's Nintendo E3 Direct, you can watch the full thing right here.

If you don't have forty minutes to kill, here are the highlights: Mega Man in Smash Bros., Wind Waker HD in October, Super Mario 3D World on Wii U this Fall, and Mario Kart 8 has anti-gravity.

Nothing majorly surprising outside of Mega Man, but everything they showed looked good.

Fable Anniversary Coming This Year on Xbox 360

In between the fits of pain and vomiting that passing two kidney stones are causing me to have (on my birthday, no less!), I found this cool little tidbit of news, and it is almost, almost, enough for me to miss my 360. 

The original Fable (and The Lost Chapters expansion) is getting an HD makeover for the 360, and will be released later this year.  On this morning's podcast, Major Nelson made the announcement, and it was revealed that beyond looking prettier, the game would feature faster loading times, SmartGlass support, and leader boards so you can see who kicks chickens best.  Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky and they will release Fable HD on the PC.
