In Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, enter the remote and deadly Wild West, where the outlaw McCall brothers are on a quest for the legendary Gold of Juarez. In their journey across a vast landscape, these lawless gunslingers will stop at nothing to achieve their goal -- and woe to any man who tries to stand in their way. Arm yourself with pistols, cannons, machine guns, and more as you strike out on a mission with two fearless compatriots whose bonds of blood are only strengthened by the blood they spill together.

Based on the 2009 summer movie blockbuster of the same name, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince transports fans both old and new to the beloved and action-filled video game universe of Harry Potter. In this most recent adventure players return to the famous Hogwarts School for Wizards, as well as other surrounding parts of the wizarding world, to help Harry survive a difficult and danger-filled sixth year.

Wait For Me is a radical departure from Moby's recent albums. Liberated from the pressures of trying to please himself at the same time as the industry, in making Wait For Me Moby decided to forego the expensive studios, state-of-the-art equipment, big name guest artists, and phalanxes of graphic designers and image consultants that have characterized some of his previous albums. "There's something so relaxing about doing everything yourself, and not trying to second-guess the market," Moby says. "It's nice to try to do things for the right reasons and just make a record because you want to make a record."

DEFINITIVE JUX is proud to present Depart From Me, the latest full-length album from underground/indie-rap legend Cage, a.k.a. Chris Palko. The follow-up to Hell's Winter, his 2005 critically-acclaimed LP, Depart From Me continues Cage's musical saga of a no-holds-barred, brutally autobiographical journey through his past and present. Plagued by abuse, institutionalization, drugs, and violence throughout his life, these nightmarish experiences have permeated his art and defined the music he makes today. Cage's music is truly reflective of a reality far stranger than fiction. On Depart From Me Cage illuminates the struggles he's faced upon entering a world that continues to be a source of loss and confusion. He's helped along in this task with production by El-P, F. Sean, the late Camu Tao, and also Aesop Rock.
