The Nintendo 3DS hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since its release and that’s because there hasn’t been a ton of great games for it yet. That all changes this week with the release of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Hit Metacritic and you’ll see that the original game for the Nintendo 64 is the highest rated video game to ever be released. Of course, it came out way back in 1998 and standards have certainly been jacked-up since then. So it’s a good thing that Nintendo has completely revamped the graphics in addition to being able to play it in 3D. It’s already a massive game, but after you finish it you can essentially play it all in reverse. If your 3DS has been collecting dust it’s time to rekindle your relationship.

Based on the novel Out of My Head, Unknown is a new thriller starring Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones, and Frank Langella. In it, a doctor (Neeson) wakes up in Berlin from a coma and discovers that someone has taken on his identity and not even his wife believes him. With the help of a young woman, Neeson takes matter into his own hands to prove who he really is. The brand new DVD/Blu-Ray release supplies viewers with both the theatrical version and extended cut of the film as well as audio commentaries and the featurette Le Making Of. Liam Neeson flicks are indeed an acquired taste for most dudes lookin’ for an action-packed flick featuring a grown-ass man forced to kick some ass after being backed into corner. This is obviously one of those movies. Get it, guys.

The geek is back! Alpocalypse is the 13th studio album by parody legend "Weird Al" Yankovic and looks to be yet another classic in his amazing repertoire. This will be Yank’s first legit studio release since 2006’s Straight Outta Lynwood. Featuring the parody standout of Lady Gaga’s international smash "Born This Way," Al’s "Perform This Way" is from the point of view of Gaga and pretty much lays out her performance style and fashion nonsense in a very hilarious manner in which only Yankovic can uniquely pull off. The rest of the awesome LP features parodies of songs by The White Stripes, Miley Cyrus and B.o.B. On another rad side note, you can also grab this LP on vinyl as well.
