It's a fact: in the fighting game realm, women kick more ass than men. Chun-Li, Zafina, Sonya Blade, Mai Shiranui, and Sarah Bryant hold many a candle -- sometimes lit at both ends -- when faced against their male counterparts.

A classic from the 1990s returns. That's what we learned from the recent PAX West conference. The Sistahs weren't there, but they sure wish they were.

These days a good pair of headphones can cost you between $100-200, and that's if you're seeking the best quality both in audio and comfort. So imagine getting deep into online gaming or -- in my case -- Podcasting, and

In the summer, you could abandon your TV, forget about your apps, and take a break from anime. Or you could be like me, and watch as many of the summer's anime as possible. We do have some great shows in the summer, so I might  convince you to add a few to your queue.

The Netflix Effect

Netflix picked up some very interesting titles this summer, but we wont be able to see them legally at least until the fall.

Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger

So, from what I can tell, Sirius the Jaeger is about a secret vampire society at war with humans. It is set in the Japan of the 1930's. The humans have Jaegers, talented killers banded together to eliminate the vampire threat. The action is spectacular, so I am definitely going to add it to my Netflix list.

Juushinki Pandora

What is Juushinki Pandora? It looks like it's about transforming tank mecha fighting giant alien creatures. A nerdy dude with two-toned hair pilots one of these tanks, called the Pandora. I'm up for this, because I'm a bit of a mech head. I don't feel a strong pull towards Pandora, but I'm give it a standard 1 episode viewing.

Baki

Even though I've heard terrible things about it, I still would like to see Baki. Baki is the kind of ridiculous action show that I will watch and be amazed at. Since the original Baki film (30 years ago? More?) Baki has always had a loose definition of what realism is. This is not a supernatural show, but Baki may as well be Jojo's Bizarre Adventure or Fist of the North Star. Expect a lot of maiming, and, I think, murder. This might be the most violent Baki we've ever had.

 

Returning Favorites

Attack on Titan

What is Attack on Titan without its titular monsters? Well, it's still pretty good. I don't know where all the titans are, or why they all decided to stop munching on humans, but they haven't really shown up, and I don't think they will for any episode- unless it's in flashback. You can tell right from the OP that this is going to be a very different season.

My Hero Academia

I love anime. I like superheroes. "Why not both?" My Hero Academia is still the best itch-scratcher that I could possibly ask for. Season 3 continues with the provisional exams, which introduces us to a new set of students with quirks. I wont go any further, because I think that one of the most popular shounen of the decade needs no push.

FLCL

It's back! It's Fooly, it's Cooly, and it has come back to TV after a decade of being away. FLCL Progressive brings a couple characters back from the original show, but the rest of the cast is totally new. It was hard to get used to the new people and new story, but I felt comfortable by the time I watched the second half of the season.

 

It takes a lot for a video game to truly wow its audience. Some go for over-the-top violence, others showcase a heart-wrenching story usually reserved for Oscar-winning movies. In the case of Sabotage's The Messenger, the way it wows gamers

Just count this week's podcast title as a guide to go by. You don't really want to live with anybody who acts in such a binary way.

Sometimes I want to give the benefit of the doubt when it comes to kart racing, the one kind of gaming I can be a sucker for. With big names like Mario Kart and underdog winners like Jimmie Johnson's Anything

On paper, Binx Entertainment's I Hate Running Backwards sounds keen to have a great time. With characters from Serious Sam, Shadow Warrior, Broforce, and other Devolver Digital favorites teaming up for an all-out shootout, the ideas and possibilities that could

Cooperative games that require a lot of communication seem like they are played best in person. This was the thought issued by the original order-delivering chef game Overcooked. While this certainly makes a lot of sense, it can be deceptively

As the Sistahs determine in this week's podcast, your gamer cred is not measured by the number of consoles that are gathering dust in your closet. Your gamer cred is not the number of Xbox 360 boxes you have displayed on your wall.
