New week, new freshness! It's time once again for a new episode of the ESH Podcast and this week we cover lots of gaming topics as well as a touch of anime.

Your thumbs will be sore, you'll be screaming at the TV when the Continue Screen appears, and you'll be thinking for days on a proper strategy on how to defeat the bosses. Is Scott Pilgrim VS The World worth all this anguish? To put it bluntly: hell yes!

Here it is: the DLC pack we’ve all been waiting for. Gearbox Software and 2K Games have announced the impending arrival of the fourth DLC for Borderlands, and it’s a doozy. If you’ve beat the main storyline then you saw the Interplanetary Ninja Assassin Claptrap, well he’s finally here.

Ted Stevens is gone, but his tubes yet remain. Pictured here are the tubes that exclusively carried MP3 audio files.

Those lazy days of summer are upon us and with them they’ve brought along another game release drought.  Don’t get me wrong, there are a few gems out there if you’re into things like crafting stars, but what are you to do to fulfill that console itch?  I’m here to remind you that there are still options for you out there.

Apparently, Hulu Desktop is still in beta

Hulu's offering of anime.

It upsets me that I end up missing out on all the free & legal anime that's out there. Funimation is probably the best at offering free streaming video of their titles, and Hulu plays them as well. With that in mind, I took a moment to see what I can get for the best price of all.

Here's what's new on Hulu:

Alright, so in May I got myself a brand-spanking-new Mac laptop, which since I was previously a die-hard PC fan was a big step for me. I even went so far as to name it "The Destiny Prognosication Machine" like the good little Escaflowne fan I am. So, since I was now an hip and cool Justin Long rather than a boring old suit-wearing John Hodgeman, I figured it was required that I make something video flavored. Because it would be easy and quick and I could do it right out of the box without having to load more software, which can I say really screwed me up. I spent more time trying to figure out what I needed to do to set the thing up than I would have spent actually setting a PC up.

At the time I was also rabidly watching Star Trek every chance I got, to the point where the end credits would roll and I'd press play again. I'm a crazy insane Karl Urban fan and have been ever since his Caesar/Cupid days on Hercules/Xena. As I type this, I just finished watching 'Pathfinder' and my background image is of Vaako from the Chronicles of Riddick, so you can guess how nuts about him I am. I'm also a huge Zachary Quintos fan, so Star Trek XI is like visual crack for me.

Star Trek mixed with the idea of making a fanvid in my head and this is what popped out...

Do you like action video games? Do you like creepy jack-in-the-boxes? You do? Well if you have all of that and $99.99 you too can pre-order the collector's edition of Ubisoft's forthcoming Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
