ElectricSistaHood


Join self-proclaimed geeks (and actual sisters) NinJaSistah and Pandalicious each week as they share a unique look at video games new and old. From console gaming (Xbox, Playstation, Wii) to mobile (iOS and Android), triple "A" titles to independent developer releases, trade show coverage and even one-on-one interviews, these ladies review and preview it all. Sprinkle in a little bit of anime and tech gadget and a whole lot of randomness and you've got yourself an episode of ElectricSistaHood.

For most podcast recordings, NinJaSistah and Pandalicious are not in the same room. Ninja is typically bundled up on the cold second floor of her house, while Panda is sitting in her den, usually with her cat, trying to keep it from making a ruckus during the show. Both of them are usually very civil during the procedings, but when Panda's ire is raised, Ninja can feel it 10 miles away over the Skype connection. And you should feel fortunate to be able to participate in such a moment during this week's show. The Sistahs are back from a weekend […] The post ESH Cast #528: I can feel your anger through the Internet appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

The big PAX East event was in Boston this past weekend and our feet are still reminding us of it. According to Ninja's iPhone, which keeps track of these kinds of things, she walked 17 miles during the three days of the show. And she proclaims Never Again -- until next year, of course. Panda's work and wedding preparations kept her away from the show until the last day, when she joined Ninja's gang for this week's annual PAX East roundtable to discuss the show for all of you. The Sistahs were joined by a jovial bunch: Evan Bourgault, better […] The post ESH Cast #527: Beware of falling ice appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

We don't do this often, but we're taking off a week. Ninja's just returned from a week on the West Coast and Panda's been attending to some pre-nuptial details and the time just got away from both of us. And rather than subject you to yet another clip show, we decided to take the show dark for a week. But have no fear, we'll be back in full force with our annual roundtable show next week, in which we'll recount our experiences at the upcoming PAX East show in Boston. Just to tide you over until next week, we suggest […] The post No new podcast this week (Don't be so disappointed) appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

So this past weekend, Ninja was visiting her MVP pals at Microsoft and Pandalicious was busy preparing for her impending nuptials (T-minus one month). As a result, you are rewarded with a clip show. This one comes from the ESH archives, featuring some funny stuff, particularly the first clip, which deals with the subject in the title of this show. We won't try to explain it here -- it's best that you experience it for yourself. In all, the show contains a great numbewr of clips. Here are just some of the subjects: It’s never all right to shoot yourself […] The post ESH Cast #526: Night of the Living Poop Coma appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Before you start laughing at this week's podcast title, it turns out we've been beaten to the punch. No fewer than three internet websites have already featured this joke as the headline for stories about the video game called Thumper. So we weren't the first. But we are the latest. That's not much, but it's something. Thumper is an interesting game reviewed by Pandalicious in the show. We also could have made Bambi jokes, but someone would have invariably written that first as well. There's just no winning in the podcast titles game. In addition to talking about Thumper, Ninja […] The post ESH Cast #525: A Knight, a Viking and a Samauri Walk Into a Bar… appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

There will be 15,000 more people at June's big E3 bash than were expected. That's because the show's promoters are letting in some paying customers. And there are some people who have become a little upset. Of course, this doesn't make all that much difference to our crew. Our decisions to staff the show -- and we have had a presense there for a decade -- has never depended on anything besides the ability to afford the trip and the time off of our day jobs. A few thousand extra souls will add only to the Con Funk. Let's hope […] The post ESH Cast #524: The Sky’s Not Falling, Just the Exclusivity appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

If this was 1950s Hollywood, we'd be proclaiming this week's show with a huge banner: More Than 10 Years in the Making! Well, it's true. But it's a good thing we're not flashy like that. It's another clip show this week, so we don't focus on anime or video games. This week we focus on grammar. And not the kind that makes red-hooded cherubs coo, "Oh, grammar, what big eyes you have." This is the kind of stuff you should have learned in school. But we hope you enjoy the lesson. We dig deep into our voluminous archives for some […] The post ESH Cast #523: The Bird is a Word appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Your hand is just the first thing you get to lose in the Resident Evil 7 video game. If you don't watch out, you're going to lose a lot more. At least that's what Ninja and Panda have determined after seeing more than half of the game thus far. They haven't finished it, but they were so enthused about it, they decided to devote this week's show to it. Among the things they do to entertain you this week is to show you the difficulty they have in counting backwards. Ninja didn't actually play the game, but tells you of […] The post ESH Cast #522: You’re Gonna Lose a Hand — Guaranteed! appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Technically, human beings don't have nerve endings in their brain, so it's not actually possible to feel pain up there, but that's not how Ninja and Panda feel right now. It's been a long week of highs and lows for the girls, after you'll soon discover listening to this week's show. But they try to keep an optimistic attitude, which you'll surely appreciate. The topics this week focus on video games, and you'll hear them talk about several subjects, including Oxenfree, Tearaway Unfolded, Dark Cloud, For Honor and Saints Row. As usual, they take their usual diversions to discuss other […] The post ESH Cast #521: It hurts my brain just thinking about it appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Nintendo keeps slipping away from what made us their biggest fans so many years ago. Either that, or we're just getting old. Naaaaaah. It couldn't be that. Nintendo's announcement of the availabilty and price of the coming Nintendo Switch provokes a lot of comment on our podcast this week. We mainly complain about the pausity of desired games for the new system. Have they simply run out of itdea over there? But we do give our general view of the slim offerings released at their announcement. Among the topics of discussion: Zelda, Mario and Splatoon. It's like a Greatest Hits […] The post ESH Cast #520: Nintendo Makes Me Work Too Hard to be a Fan appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.
