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.

Perhaps a better title for this week's podcast episode is "Let's hear it FROM the Sistahs!" That's because "hearing" it is what this week's show is all about. Panda and I have taken a break from recording this week to recharge our batteries while we're dealing with last month's burst water pipe and the resultant drenching the House of ESH took. Let's just say that the place is still unoccupied after a month and a half. It's probably a good thing we don't do a podcast about insurance companies. If you think we're rough on the folks at E3... For […] The post ESH Cast #574: Let’s hear it for the Sistahs! appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Long-time listeners are going to hear something different at the beginning of this week's show. For the past 11 years, we have opened the show saying the were "the best" girl-gaming and anime podcast. That changes this week. Sure, we're still the best (at least we think so), but we have never done enough to accentuate the fact that we are the ORIGINAL girl-gaming and anime podcast. We've been around, providing weekly commentary, since May 2006. That's before Obama became president. Steve Jobs, Michael Jackson and Prince were still alive. When we showed up, the term "podcast" had existed for […] The post ESH Cast #573: This game turns gritty, violent crime into a party appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Never let the rules get in the way of having a fun time. That's the lesson we keep learning as time goes on. Panda discovered that for herself when she was introduced to the music-mixing game DropMix on Thanksgiving of last year. Why worry about the game when you can have a blast making music mixes? And although her husband originally feigned disinterest in the game, Panda reveals in her review of the program this week that he's been buying extra cards to make new mixes for the game. And that's just one subject in this week's show. We get […] The post ESH Cast #572: We play DropMix like most people play Monopoly — we just make up the rules appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

It was an unexpected happenstance, and that's what made is so infuriating. Panda was watching the anime "Ancient Magus Bride" at Ninja's request. She was only a couple of episodes in when, suddenly, she was enveloped in tears and grief. Memories of previous hard times washed over her at the same time that she was awash in her own tears. There was only one solution: To blame her sister for the whole thing. That's the tale Panda tells in this week's podcast, along with her other observations about the anime. She and Ninja also discuss more about the upcoming PAX […] The post ESH Cast #571: It was so sad, I got mad at my sister appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Opinions are just like the Sistahs from ElectricSistaHood -- everybody has one. It doesn't matter if you agree or not, anyone who has listened to us for the past 11 years knows that we have an opinion about everything. Even things we don't know anything about. But one thing we do know about is video games. And we know about anime. And we know what we like. And now you do, too. We're back with a live show this week after having to deal with the flood that swallowed up Ninja's house a few weeks ago. Ninja's still in temporary […] The post ESH Cast #570: I’m known as the girl who has all the opinions (No, we are) appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

This week there's a lot of singing. Last week there was a lot of rain. That's how we came up with the title of this week's show. If you were looking for a show last week, we're sorry to disappoint you. A water pipe froze in Ninja's house and it rained for three hours before somebody finally managed to shut it off. Now Ninja's holed up in a hotel for a few months while her house is getting repaired and is still too discombobulated to do a new episode. As you might expect, there hasn't been a lot of game […] The post ESH Cast #569: Singin’ in the rain appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

One of the truths we hold self evident is that we all know just how addictive video gaming can be. Heck, almost anything that we enjoy could become addictive. But when the World Health Organization said it was studying the possibilty that gaming was addictive, long-time gamers were up in arms. How dare could you accuse gaming of something so heinous? But, as we discuss in this week's podcast, the WHO study is probably a necessary and good thing. We've certainly seen addictive personalities ourselves, and if it ends up being classified as a disease, it will be easier to […] The post ESH Cast #568: No one likes to be slapped with the truth stick appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

After a year as timultuous as this one, what's a better way to end it than with a collection of balls? At least, that's what we've been asking ourselves. Although this week's episode of the ElectricSistaHood podcast is not a new one, it's filled with stuff that will be new to you. It's one of our "cutting room floor" clip shows in which we present segments from episodes that were previously excised because the show was running a little too long. See, we're both winners here! Panda and I get a week off, and you get a podcast full of […] The post ESH Cast #567: We begin with a collection of balls appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

The annual game awards show comes on conveniently at the end of the year, and for the past several years, the Sistahs have watched the festivities and delivered their opinions about it. They admit that they are usually disappointed by the thing. Either the show is too much over the top or the categories are wrong or the winners that have been chosen are wrong. But that wasn't the case with this year's effort. As you will hear on this week's show, the game awards folks have finally gotten the thing right. The show was good, the categories were good […] The post ESH Cast #566: The 2017 Game Awards: You doin' it right appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Panda is very demanding about anime. They must be animated well. They must be interesting. And they must have a good story. And she's found that with the anime game Doki Doki Literature Club. And she doesn't mind that, even with the word "Literature" in the title's name, the thing's not really about reading books. Oh, they read books in the anime, but they don't talk much about them. The anime's not about literature criticism. There are harems, there is horror, there are girl-problems, but there's not much literature to be found there. Panda delivers her thesis on the anime […] The post ESH Cast #565: This Doki Doki game is not necessarily okey dokey appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.
