DiRT 3, the highly-anticipated third installment in the Colin McRae Rally series, is now ready for epic consumption on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. Our good homies over at GameTrailers have already given the new game a stellar review and it’s pretty obvious why. With the gameplay and all around presentation being all top-notch, DiRT 3 takes diehard rally race fans to the best tracks and racing locations all around the world including epic spots as Finland, Aspen and even Kenya. The limits of the Youtube functionality seem to be a bit questionable, but that’s us just nitpicking. Are you ready to get DiRTy? Of course you are.

Starring a string of unknown teen heartthrobs, I Am Number Four is a sci-fi drama about nine infant aliens that flee their home planet and hide on Earth from an invading species. These deadly killers eventually follow the aliens to Earth to hunt and kill them. Each of the nine aliens is placed with a guardian and all of them develop superhuman powers as they grow older. The brand new DVD/Blu-ray package supplies viewers with a gang of extra goodies including 6 deleted scenes, a blooper reel and the featurettes Becoming Number 6, Extended Strangers in Paradise and Extended Warsaw Basement. Even though this seems like a teenybopper sci-fi flick, the budget and high-tech makers of the film will most definitely differ. Do it.

Back with RedOne and a gaggle of top-notch producers, Lady Gaga has openly stated that this is her best record to date. She even made a public “promise to give” her fans “the greatest album of this decade.” This is obviously up for debate, but there’s really only one way to find out if she’s telling the truth. You might as well get the album now cause you’re pretty much gonna be forced to listen to it one way or another down the line. Just sayin’…
