Holiday shopping season is here, and this week the ladies of ESH share their purchase recommendations for the geeks/nerds/gamers nearest and dearest to you.

As anime likes to do from time to time, this is a period in the Rouroni Kenshin TV timeline, just retold from a different perspective. The Rurouni Kenshin: Shin Kyoto-Hen OAV will be screened in Japan in December.

Kick your week off right with a brand new episode of the ESH podcast! This week the ladies continue their Broke Bitch November video game rants/raves/reviews chatting about the freshly released Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Saints Row the Third titles from Ubisoft and THQrespectively.

As a day-one owner of the Nintendo 3DS, I’ll admit that choice software for the system has been few and far between. While we’ve already had hits like Ocarina of Time 3D and Star Fox 64 3D to enjoy, it just hasn’t been the same. What we’ve all been waiting for is a great game to play that wasn’t released in the mid-to-late 90s. Nintendo has finally answered our pleas with Super Mario 3D Land. Is this the breakout brand-spanking new game for the 3DS, or is it simply too little too late?

If you want to play the new Star Wars MMORPG before it's released, a boatload of beta keys have been floating around the internet. Get your beta key here. If those are gone, try getting one here (requires free registration)

20111114-221238.jpg Monday, new podcast episode. This week the ladies talk Broke Bitch November with NinJa's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 review while Panda tears herself away from The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim long enough to talk about it.

After The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was given, as a wonderful gift, to the world, Nintendo was faced with a huge problem. I can see them sitting there at a conference table, faces buried in their hands, trying to figure out exactly how they’re going to top their previous effort. This is the how The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was born. While topping Ocarina of Time seems almost impossible, giving it their best effort, they created one of the most unique and risky titles in the series to date.
