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.

Everybody managed to stay within voice this week, meaning that this show is brand, spanking new. And, as with most episodes after a hiatus, it quickly devolved into tangents. And this week's show has a tangent that takes up most of the time. Ninja and Panda got caught up in comic book canon as they discussed the things that are right and wrong about past and upcoming comic book movies with characters from DC and Marvel. As you can tell from the title of the show, they spend a lot of time discussing the minutiae of the ages of certain […] The post ESH Cast #533: We spend time carbon dating X-Men appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

High times have returned to ESHland this week. No, it's not a celebration of sorts. In fact, it is Ninjasistah who is out-of-sorts. Her voice has taken a little vacation from her body, so it is another clip show. But we hope you'll enjoy this -- the featured part has to do with that all-adult sport of drinking. It is a subject the Sistahs are all too aware of. Although they know their limitations, that doesn't keep them from continuing to participate. And you, dear listeners, will be the happy recipient. It's not all about drinking, of course. That would […] The post ESH Cast #532: I’ll drink to that — in fact, I’ll drink to anything appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Life returns to normal around the ESH hacienda this week. Ninja and Panda have returned from The Wedding To End All Weddings, everybody's gotten sick and well again and we still have a weeks before the Easter hijinks that normally occur around here. So the girls are getting themselves in trouble the normal ways. Ninja is playing Mass Effect Andromeda and putting up with an unexpected upgrade hiccup in the game. Panda is burrowing herself in the world of the Switch and the new Zelda game, and both are debating the merits of the next version of the Xbox One, […] The post ESH Cast #531: I wasn’t gonna touch it.

We were a little busy this past weekend -- Panda got married and Ninja was in the wedding party. So there won't be a new show this week. Instead, we hope you'll listen to this clip show, with its special focus on Panda. As you might already know, if you've listened for any time at all, Panda has said many, many things about her opinions on all things -- and that includes guys. So we've collected some of the best stuff over the past 11 years of the show and are presenting them for your listening pleasure. We hope you'll […] The post ESH Cast #530: Since I graced this earth, it’s always been about me appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

We've seen a lot of complaints about recently released video games and anime, and we'd just like to say that while we understand the complaints, they aren't completely justified. While we aren't in the school of "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all," we do think that some of the haters out there could be a little more benevolent in their opinions. With that said, we give our own two cents and a couple of things that have gotten such complaints lately -- the game Mass Effect Andromeda and the upcoming live-action version of Death Note.

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.
