Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions features favorite superhero Spider-Man and blends together four universes from the Marvel Comics multiverse, allowing the player to play as four different Spider-Men. Neil Patrick Harris, Christopher Daniel Barnes, Dan Gilvezan, and Josh Keaton voice a Spider-Man from each of their alternate universes. The game revolves around an artifact known as the Tablet of Order and Chaos. When it is shattered into pieces during a fight between Spider-Man and Mysterio it causes problems with multiple Marvel Universe realities. Madame Web calls on four versions of Spider-Man from four realities to assist her in bringing the realities back into balance. Shattered Dimensions is a great new take on the series and should be an epic delight for fans looking for a fresh Spider-Man game experience. The adventure has just begun, guys.

How does anyone ever get tired of this show? We're glad to announce that the US version of The Office is back with their sixth season of wacky cubicle shenanigans. The DVD consists of 13 hours of material, divided into 22 half-hour episodes and two hour-long episodes. In this new season, Jim becomes co-manager of the Scranton branch, Michael starts dating Pam's mother, Dwight and Ryan attempt to get Jim fired, and Dunder Mifflin faces an uncertain future due to rumors of bankruptcy. This is a no-brainer for true comedy fans. Get into it, y’all.

They’re back, dudes. Interpol is the self-titled fourth studio album by the popular New York post-punk outfit Interpol. The new LP was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village with details of the record having already surfaced in early June. This album will be the band's last effort with original bassist Carlos Dengler as he left shortly after the album's completion. With lead singles "Barricade" and “Lights,” it’s easy to see that Interpol is back in top form and seriously better than ever.
