Sure, if you own a PlayStation 3 then you’re probably good to go with Gran Turismo 5 for, say, the next five years. But for everyone else, the shine of Forza Motorsport 3 has long since worn off. If you’re looking for something new and unique from a racing game, we recommend Test Drive Unlimited 2. Available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on Tuesday, it’s like the World of Warcraft of motorsports with a persistent world that all the other players live and race in. You also have your own crib and can fill it up with things you buy using points you earn. Basically, it’s like you’re transported to a magical wonderland where everyone is a multi-millionaire who’s driving a $100,000 car. There’s no other driving game like it and it’s suited up with plenty of licensed cars and miles of roads to uncover. It’s Gran Turismo, World of Warcraft, and The Sims rolled into one. Girls are also a part of the equation, totally justifying the saying, “Build it and they will come.” That didn’t come out right.

Let Me In is the American remake of the amazing Swedish horror film Let the Right One In. The remake is about a 12-year-old boy in a New Mexico town in the early 1980s who develops a friendship with a very young vampire. I know vampire movies are all the rage these days, but I gotta say that this one is seriously a diamond in the rough. Chloë Moretz (Hit Girl from Kick-Ass) co-stars with Kodi Smit-McPhee. The Blu-ray release features audio commentary with writer/director Matt Reeves, a grip of unrated deleted scenes and From the Inside: A Look at the Making of Let Me In. Do this is you know what’s good for you.

Recorded 30 years ago in support of his album Uprising, Bob Marley & The Wailers - Live Forever: The Stanley Theatre, Pittsburgh, PA is Bob Marley's last recorded concert ever. Live Forever is a 2CD/3LP/digital compilation that features every one of Bob Marley's classics and then some. It give fans legendary renditions of "No Woman No Cry," "Jammin'," and "Is This Love" as well as a nostalgic look at the reggae superstar before he left this world too far soon. Forget all these wack pop stars that try way too hard to get attention and watch a real pro at work at the peak of his powers.
