It’s been a long, dry spring for games with the exception of March, but all of that is about to change as summer rolls around. This Tuesday there are plenty of games to drop your cash on, and good ones too. We all tend to burn a lot of time playing video games, but Singularity allows you to get some of it back. This sci-fi shooter allows you to manipulate time back and forth with explosive results on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. If you want something a little less visceral, the next in the popular LEGO franchise touches down on Tuesday with LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4. These games always find clever ways to work around the LEGO aesthetic, and with the magic and flexibility of this franchise it’s looking like the best one yet.

For those that don’t know, Hot Tub Time Machine is a wild and raunchy comedy starring John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke. In addition to the main Hot Tub gang, the film also features classic ‘80s stars Chevy Chase, Crispin Glover, and William "Sweep the Leg" Zabka. In the film, four friends hit the Kodiak Valley Ski Resort, have a crazy night of drinking in a hot tub and all somehow wake up in the year 1986. The group can see each other as their proper age, but when they look at their reflections and to everyone else they appear as they did in 1986. Hilarity then ensues. Even though it didn’t do that great at the box office, Hot Tub Time Machine is a really solid comedy. Get it.

Love King is the third studio LP by the multitalented R&B superstar The-Dream. After reports came out that the album was in the works, The-Dream stated that the album would be his final studio album. Following the release of the first single, The-Dream described his album being "deeper than space." Love King is stacked with soon-to-be radio classics as well as some hood bangers. The-Dream is easily one of the best producers on the planet and we should all take full advantage of his time as a solo artist.
