We’re closing out the week with a bunch more interesting bits of announcement and release news, and a little bit of detail on some already announced upcoming titles. And just to let you know… if you come back here on Monday, you’ll find Dr. Adam Jahnke’s epic Blu-ray review of CBS’s Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery box set! So don’t miss it.

What would the Christmas season be without those last two? [Read on here...]
