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.

We don't always follow the party line with what we say. Anybody who has listened to us for even a few episodes could tell you that. There's no telling what we may say next. Our producer could tell you. He has had to bleep us out on more than one occasion when we have said something we shouldn't, and there are plenty of times he has had to scold us for giving our opinions on subjects, but made them sound like facts. We apologize for that. We understand that it's appropriate to say the word "alleged" when we talk about […] The post ESH Cast #597: If it’s not inappropriate, it’s not from us appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

This week's show goes into a lot of areas the Sistahs haven't explored much in the past, including the mysterious world of computer programming. Computer programming? That's right. Pandalicious sticks her big toe right in the middle of the world of computer programming through the game Human Resource Machine. If that doesn't sound like much of a game to you, you would be wrong. The game is chock full of puzzles to solve and, along the way, you'll learn a number of computer programming concepts you might try to use later in normal computer programming languages. If you think that […] The post ESH Cast #596: I got no jam — but have you seen my jelly? appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Pandalicious has her opinions, and she makes sure everyone is aware of them. One of her strong opinions this week is about a video game she has been playing called Octopath Traveler. She is more than 45 hours into the game, and she expects to play at least 100 more before she is finished. But there is one thing about the game that she is clearly not enamored with. Her computerized players just don't seem friendly enough with her or each other. There's no banter between them. There's no small talk. They travel from one place to the next in […] The post ESH Cast #595: Panda wants her computer players to be better friends with each other appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

The Sistahs rarely veer away from the general topics of video games and anime, but with their recent two-week vacation from the show, they've been energized to bring you some different topics this time. Along the way, they do manage to talk about Ninja's progress on the latest version of the Destiny 2 game, and Panda talks about the genesis of one of her favorite games, Resident Evil. In any case, agree or disagree with them, they manage to stay entertaining. Please give a listen to ESH Cast #594: Where do the Tweets go to die? They don’t. http://www.electricsistahood.com/podcast/ep_594.mp3 We […] The post ESH Cast #594: Where do the Tweets go to die? They don’t appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

The dog days of summer have struck hard, and we've got so much extra-curricular stuff going on that we're taking a few weeks off. So we're forwarding a fun clip show to you for this week. We hope it holds you for a couple of weeks. This show is a special one, in a category we call "Save it for the show." It contains interesting and, we hope, funny bits that occur as we prepare to start a show, as well as the things that go on after we finish recording a show. Our producer informs us that some of […] The post ESH Cast #593: We know where the line is now appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

It's the simplest title we've ever chosen in more than 11 years, but it's a subject that just might make you wince. Sure, in the past, we've discussed incest on more than one occasion. We've even talked about a game that makes you have sexual relations with birds. At least birds are organic. The same can't be said about kitchen appliances. I guess we can say it this way -- if you're mechanophilia-curious, by all means listen to this one. We just want to warn away the young and/or squeamish. That game's called Kitsune Kitchen and is currently available on […] The post ESH Cast #592: Romancing the scone appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Sometimes we're more clever than our normal pay grade. For those of you who are unaware, today's title is a homage to the movie Pulp Fiction. For your enjoyment, here is a link to that clip. This whole topic was brought about by a discussion between Panda and Ninja about battle royale games. And that's just a small sample of what we talk about in this week's show. Ninja also brings up virtual reality and the upcoming games The Last of Us 2 and Soul Caliber 6. The Sistahs also continue their long-running discussion of the game Detroit: Become Human.

It's always difficult to know what's real at E3 and what's not. You sit and watch a trailer for an upcoming game that looks like the best game ever made and it inevitably disappoints. Conversely, the game you saw at E3 that looked like another average game ends up having stellar play and becomes your next favorite. The problem is: You just can't tell by watching a five-minute trailer at E3. So you have to look beyond the trailer and imagine two different scenarios. First, imagine that the game you just saw is better than the one you just saw, […] The post ESH Cast #590: I don’t know what I saw, but here’s what I think I saw appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Of course, the "leak" we talk about in this week's title is the big leak made a few weeks ago by WalMart Canada. It's the reason this week's announcements at the E3 conference weren't quite as surprising as they might have been. Ninja and Panda talked about the leak a few weeks back, but, as occasionally happens, you're not hearing what they said until now. They discussed the leak in Episode 585, but because that show was running a little long, we decided to hold it back until the girls took a break from recording. And we knew this week […] The post ESH Cast #589: The last time there was a leak like this, Noah built himself a boat appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

We dredge up an old TV commercial from the 1970s to produce this week's title. Do you know what the commercial was about? Well, that doesn't matter. What matters is that Ninja and Panda get together for the last time before the big E3 show goes on in Los Angeles next week, and they discuss a wide variety of titles that are expected to be featured at the show. Final Fantasy, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Death Stranding, Last of Us 2 and Devil May Cry are just some of the games expected at the show and, undoubtedly, lots more. The girls […] The post ESH Cast #588: You got reality in my fantasy! (You got fantasy in my reality!) appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.
