Now is the time of ‘80s cartoon remakes. It happened with Transformers and so it shall be with G.I. Joe. What this film lacks in substance it makes up for in explosions and cool gizmos. And now you can watch these explosions and gizmos to your heart’s content. There’s a two-disc DVD and Blu-ray available, both of which have some pretty cool extras. There’s The Making of G.I. Joe featurette, commentary by director Stephen Sommers and producer Bob Ducsay, the Next-Gen Action featurette and more. Time to get your Channing Tatum on.

Brought to you by the makers of Guitar Hero, Band Hero takes a decidedly more "Top 40" approach to rocking, with acts including Taylor Swift, No Doubt, Lily Allen, The All-American Rejects, and Jackson 5. Headlined by some of the biggest names in music as in-game artists and playable characters, Band Hero brings the rhythm game to the masses, where players of all ages will be able to experience the signature easy-to-learn but difficult-to-master Guitar Hero gameplay.

The peeps who brought us the action-RPG awesomeness that was Mass Effect now offer to you Dragon Age: Origins: a glorious tale of violence, lust, and betrayal. Dragon Age: Origins is a single player role-playing game set in an alternate middle age, and featuring three playable character classes, accessible in the form of three races. The game also features meaty character customization, a new game engine, party-based gameplay utilizing non-player characters and a built-in personal history system for each hero character rooted in a variety of possible origin stories. Here's your one-way ticket to sword-wielding brutality.

Bleach went virtually unnoticed when it was first released, but the enormous success of the Nevermind in 1991 motivated fans to scoop Nirvana's amazing debut. This 20th anniversary edition of the album is accompanied by a previously unreleased 1990 concert, recorded live in Portland, Oregon. Get this!

Invisible Girl is the fifth studio release from garage rockers The King Khan & BBQ Show. The album was recorded back in 2008 and is finally getting released now.

This new LP showcases their effortless skills at summoning rock 'n' roll's classic elements and traditions.
