Hot on the heels of Halo: Reach comes Civilization V. Do not buy this game if you value your social life. No, seriously. You won't believe how addicting taking over the world can be. It's like Risk on a hot skillet. Our brah-heem over at GameTrailers say it's one of the best of this year. For a strategy game that's sayin' something. Proceed at your own risk but it's definitely worth checking out for those inclined.

Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe, 2010's Robin Hood is an adventure based on one of the most legendary and classic characters in the history of cinema. Duh. Viewers can get their hands on a single-disc DVD, two-disc DVD, and Blu-ray/DVD/Digital copy combo pack. Both DVD and Blu-ray contain an unrated version of the film as well as the theatrical edition. The unrated version will be approximately 15 minutes longer than the theatrical version. All those people out there who adore the now-classic combo of Ridley and Crowe will have nothing but love for this action-packed feature. Get it.

For those that don’t know, the Zac Brown Band is an extremely talented country outfit from Atlanta, Georgia. The lineup consists of Zac Brown, Jimmy De Martini, John Driskell Hopkins, Coy Bowles, Chris Fryar, and Clay Cook. You Get What You Give is the second major label studio album by the group and it looks like it could be their best yet. New tracks “Let It Go," "Who Knows," "Whiskey's Gone," "Colder Weather," and "Make This Day" were previously featured as live versions on their album Pass the Jar, but the band has apparently dolled them up in the studio for this amazing release. All of the members of the Zac Brown are standup gents who truly know how to throw down some southern country ditties.
