* While I had my doubts about Music/{{Eminem}} after ''Relapse'', his DuetsAlbum ''[=BackToBasics=]'' not only returns him to his ''Slim Shady LP''-era sound, but pumps out CrowningMomentOfAwesome after CrowningMomentOfAwesome. Highlights include "Six White Limit" (feat. [[RageAgainstTheMachine Zack de la Rocha]], the surviving Music/BeastieBoys, & Music/KidRock) and "No More Rage" (feat. Music/RunDMC). Even if you don't like Eminem, buy this album--you won't regret it!

* In a similar vein, the one-shot graphic novel ''[[CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers The Planeteers]]'' also manages to bring a 90's icon into 2010 in a mature, respectful fashion. There's been "dark future" imaginings of Captain Planet before, even in the original show itself, but ''The Planeteers'' manages to pull it off without any anviliciousness whatsoever. Much is made of the real economic and social forces contributing to our planet's pollution. Cap appears very infrequently, as the colorful rogues gallery of the Planeteers' youth is replaced by poverty, corrupt governments, and powerful industry lobbies- hardly a job for a briefs-and-boots superhero. Angst, however, is non-existent. The Planeteers are weary from their lifelong struggle against pollution, but share a resigned optimism to their cause, even as the forces aligned against them constantly manufacture distrust in their motives and their mission. Children who grew up with the Planeteers in the early 90's know now that there's infinitely more to cleaning up the planet than just picking up highway litter and snipping six-pack rings- the adult versions of Kwame, Ma-Ti, Wheeler, Gi, and Linka are no different.

* Nippon Ichi's new ''GurrenLagann'' StrategyRPG is a must-play for any fan of the series. The way they handle Spiral Energy by having it deplete or increase based on how well you're doing in the battle is innovative and true to the series, the art style is perfectly accurate, and the action commands during battles are great fun. While you can play through the exact events of the series (with some of the best parts from the movies - they even ''finally'' fixed the [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot waste of a perfectly good plot]] by giving Lord Genome a Tengen Toppa Lazengann!) if you take the main quest, the real fun is trying out all the "what-if" paths and seeing what happens. But the best part is how [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything they handled the Thymilph fight]]. Ordinarily, his lance will deal enough damage to kill Kamina if you're at the level you'd ordinarily be at by that point, but if you've done enough LevelGrinding and sidequests to build up Kamina's maximum HP, he'll actually shrug it off, and you get to keep him for the rest of the game! It's just as awesome as it sounds. And, since it wouldn't be Nippon Ichi without crossovers, there's a secret sidequest where you can get the cast of ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' to join Team Dai-Gurren, and HilarityEnsues. Flonne's conversation with the Anti-Spiral in the final battle is positively ''hysterical.''

* The Newest ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' Anime Movie, which includes robots from Anime that weren't in the games before, one of them happens to be GurrenLagann! Best part? The part where, Simon is knocked unconscious, who pilots Gurren Lagann while he's unconscious? [[spoiler: ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji]]'']], who does a very impressive job, for someone with not much confidence! If I'm missing anything, please tell me!

* I just played EliteBeatAgents 2: Music Lives! They pretty much topped themselves on every level in this game. Seriously, the final levels make GurrenLagann look ''sedated'', and the TearJerker level made me cry so much, I couldn't play for a week. And the {{Ouendan}} are playable too! The best part is, [=iNiS=] somehow got the funds to make a tie-in movie! I'm looking forward to Lady Gaga as Foxx.

*Did you guys hear about that new Jungle Book and Jaws crossover? Man, they really improved the special effects--the scene with Mowgli vs. Bruce actually looked real!

* I absolutely LOVED the ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}'' anime series! It not only adapts the games faithfully (with the ''[[VideoGame/Klonoa2LunateasVeil Klonoa 2]]'' adaptation being especially good), but it expands upon scenes from the games, including the backstories. I knew Lolo went through crap from the pristesses, but never thought one actually bullied her! You can't help but feel bad for the poor girl! They also made the battles even more extensive Klonoa's battle with the King of Sorrow was particularly a MomentOfAwesome. The animation is pretty sweet, too! Check it out if you can!

** From the same author, we have ''The Anachronistic Adventures of Amelia Earhart''. Basically, Amelia crashlands on a hidden island, which turns out to be the secret lair of Film/DrMabuse, who, in collaboration with FuManchu, Fantomas, and [[TheMarxBrothers Gummo Marx]], is plotting to rule the world. Amelia teams up with Glenn Miller, IndianaJones, Boxcar Betty, special agent Gaius Julius Caesar, and a horde of {{giant spider}}s to save the day. It's surprisingly awesome, as well as being a great comment on the emergence of fascism in the 1930s.

* Oh man, you guys HAVE to watch the DC/Marvel movie. Combining the two cinematic universes, plus Fox's X-Men films, the Arrowverse, and the Supergirl universe paid off without making it feel overstuffed. Probably helps that it's [[spoiler:four hours long.]] And the cameos from [[spoiler: Christian Bale, Micheal Keaton, and Adam West, all as Batman]] in the after-credits scene.

* Did you know that the ''WesternAnimation/CatDog''/''Franchise/LoveLive'' crossover [[EasternRPG JRPG]] ''[=CatDog=] X Love Live! The Dark Secret of Nearburg and Otonokizaka'' is considered one of the best if not the best UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn games in existence? If you don't know about this game, which was co-developed by {{Sega}} and Creator/VicTokai and released in September 1998 in Japan, then here is some info on it. It is a CrisisCrossover between, well, [=CatDog=] and Love Live! where [=CatDog=] and their friends team up with eight members of the ''Muses'', with your choice between five party members when you go to CatDog's house, with the Greasers, Rancid Rabbit and Eli Ayase performing Heel Face Turns after you defeat them. And later on in the story, the group has to face the greatest threat to their respective universes, [[BigBad Entropy]], a shapeless pitch black blob of Dark Matter that threatens to tear the fabric of their respective universes into nothingness. Even though it is a DarkerAndEdgier take on both universes towards the end, there are also some [[RuleOfFunny funny jokes]] due to both shows being animated comedies that are [[LighterAndSofter light hearted]] for the most part. The game was [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff so popular in Japan]] that it got ported to the original UsefulNotes/SonyPlaystation in July 2001 followed by a North American release by Creator/WorkingDesigns in February 2002. And the darker portions of the story have been since compared to the likes of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and even ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''.
