The nerds of the world are always at an impasse when it comes to consuming media. Between videos, games and our Kindle libraries, it’s genuinely difficult to ever choose one thing to give our full attention. (And that’s if we put down our phones long enough.)

Fortunately, it’s our job to sift through the piles of new goodies that come out every week and tell you which ones are the most worth your time. We’ll do so in our brand new Read, Watch, Play series, which you can look forward to every Friday, starting now. 

So put on your favorite Pusheen shirt, throw your pants into a dark place where they will never return, and enjoy these Daily Dot-approved picks.


Star Wars: Complete Locations


The Star Wars universe is a vast one, and fans know they can spend the rest of their lives digging into its furthest reaches and never fully grasp it. If you’re enjoying the quest, Star Wars: Complete Locations contains more than 50 full-color maps packed with lore about every locale in the films, including The Force Awakens.

Beauty & the Beast: 25th Anniversary Edition

With the release of the live-action adaption of Beauty & the Beast right around the corner, it’s a perfect time to throw in the brand new 25th anniversary edition Blu-ray. Sing every song at the top of your lungs, and start planning that Belle cosplay you’ve always wanted to do but never gotten around to.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past

Any RPG fan has a soft spot in their heart for a good Dragon Quest. The newest is actually a remake of Dragon Warrior VII, which originally came out for the PlayStation in 2001. The good news is that the new version is polished, super engaging and 100 percent adorable.

We’ve spent some time with the game and are amazed by how good the storytelling is 15 years after its original release. The minute you see that first slime, you get those chills that remind you how good it is to return to the classics.

Price on Amazon: $39.99
