World of Warcraft has been a bona fide sensation—and the butt of jokes--for years now. The crazy thing is that, in all this time, it’s never really been updated all that much. All that changes with Cataclysm. The biggest expansion pack yet, it increases the level cap (how many times you can level up for you noobs), completely reworks the visuals, and introduces two new races to play as. Unfortunately, it does not come with something that will help you get your life back. If you’re a recovering addict we recommend you stay far, far away as Cataclysm is essentially digital crack that will suck you so far in that you won’t care if yours is showing. If you have any semblance of self control, it’s probably the best online multiplayer RPG ever released. Just make sure you say goodbye to the loved ones before taking the plunge.

Ever since the crazy success of The Dark Knight everyone and their mother very much wanted to see the next film writer/director Christopher Nolan had up his sleeve. Inception was that movie and damn did it deliver. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Inception is a psychological thriller where people's ideas during an intense dream state can change the world around them in very destructive ways. The film has taken in over $800 million up to this point and with the new Blu-ray/DVD releases, it’s gonna rake in even more green. Diehard fans of Nolan’s work can now take home an Inception Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD with a briefcase gift set which includes a metal replica of the briefcase used by DiCaprio. There are also tons of other extra features such as a metal replica of the spinning top totem notoriously seen in the film's final scene. Either way, the movie by itself is worth the purchase. Get this now so your mind can be the scene of the crime, guys.

The best soundtrack of the year is finally here for personal consumption. The epic score developed by electronic legends Daft Punk for the upcoming sequel TRON: Legacy is what true fans of film live for. The few movie clips that have been released over the past few months with the Daft soundtrack incorporated have been nothing short of mind-blowing. Not only do these arrangements make the world of TRON truly come to life, they also effortlessly stand on their own two feet as an independent work worthy of a full listen. Get your hands on the deluxe edition of the album for a  free poster of Daft Punk from the film. The score itself was also arranged and orchestrated by Joseph Trapanese. This might just turn into one of the most epic driving albums of all time. Just sayin’.
