It’s been a while since we’ve been able to include a video game in Top Shelf Tuesday. After November, the game releases tend to slow to a trickle, but things are just about to pick back up. If you’re not a fan of orcs and elves then you’re probably not a fan of massively multiplayer online games like World of Warcraft, either. Well, DC Universe Online is hoping to fill the void with a super hero-based MMO that includes all your favorite DC dudes like Batman and Superman. There’s one catch, though. You do not actually play as any of DC’s biggest and brightest. Instead they’re there to give you quests and fight alongside the character you create from scratch. This game is also an anomaly in that it’s an MMO for the PlayStation 3. There aren’t many games of this type on the consoles, so if you’ve been hankerin’ for some level grinding with an analog stick now’s your chance!

As you should all know by now, The Social Network is the story about the founding of Facebook. The film was adapted from Ben Mezrich's 2009 book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal. The ensemble cast features Jesse Eisenberg, Brenda Song, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield, and Armie Hammer. Directed by David Fincher, The Social Network has gone on to become one of the best reviewed films of 2010 and is sure to be a frontrunner at the upcoming Academy Awards. The Blu-ray and DVD releases include two audio commentaries with David Fincher, the cast and writer Aaron Sorkin, the four-part feature-length documentary How Did They Ever Make a Movie of Facebook?, and endless never-before-seen goodies. Get it.
