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.

Just when you think you have everything nailed down, the boards on the front porch start warping on you. Suddenly, you're tripping on a surface you presumed was perfectly flat and level. That's precisely what happened to us on Sunday. Ninja and Panda were settled in on the couch with pizza and champaign, watching and commenting on last week's Game Awards Show for this episode of the podcast. We spent the next three hours doing just that. And then, a few hours after Panda left the House of ESH, Ninja went back and listened to the recording. With the exception […] The post ESH Cast #614: A funny thing happened on the way to the podcast appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

It happens in musicals all the time. Characters are conversing with each other, then, suddenly, one of them breaks out in song. Before the 1940's, the song had nothing to do with the action on stage, but that all changed with the musical Oklahoma!, which introduced the concept of songs that went along with what the characters had been talking about. There is little difference between that and what happens on a regular basis in our weekly podcasts. One of us is talking about something when, suddenly, the other one breaks out into a song. The juxtiposition usually results in […] The post ESH Cast #613: Suddenly, a song broke out appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

If you can't say anything new, don't say anything at all. That seems to be Sony's policy, at least. Sony caused a bit of a kerfuffle on the internet last week when it announced it would have no presence at next year's E3 conference in June. "Say it ain't so, Joe!" many people on the internet cried out. What can this mean for the vaunted E3 conference? Is this the beginning of the end? So what if Sony isn't showing up? Does this mean Sony has no new equipment to show up in 2019? Does Sony have no new groundbreaking […] The post ESH Cast #612: Sony gets better publicity by announcing they’re not showing up for E3 appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

During the past 12 years, we have said many a dirty word. We can't help it. It's how we were raised. Naturally, that stuff filters out into our show. We knew it would happen. It's why we put an Explicit tag on our show from the first episode. We're now more than 600 episodes in, and that's one thing that's never changed. Panda tried going a whole show without saying any dirty words. Once. She made it, but she never worried about that again. So this week, we've gathered up some of our proudest profanities and happily present them to […] The post ESH Cast #611: We have a personal beef about this show appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Sometimes it just takes one word. That's when the smooth-running train simply falls off its tracks. That's what happened in this week's show. Ninja was calmly recounting the events of the Microsoft X018 event when she said a certain word. Panda immediately jumped on the word and, suddenly, both were singing. Those kinds of things have been happening on this show for more than a dozen years, so we should fully expect something like that to happen. Still, it comes off as a complete surprise every time it happens. And it will, undoubtedly, continue to happen. We've learned to put […] The post ESH Cast #610: Just the mention of Matt Booty’s name nearly stopped the show appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

The Netflix anime of the ever-popular Castlevania game has turned this week's show topsy-turvy. In it, NinJaSistah actually spoils something, but Pandalicious doesn't. So be forewarned before listening to this week's show. If you don't want to know how the second season of Castlevania ends, don't listen to this thing until you do. Among the other things the Sistahs discuss are questions such as: How do astronauts keep warm in outer space? What would happen if you started living in someone else's body? What would you do if you knew a comet was about to destroy your home town? How […] The post ESH Cast #609: It’s a Red Letter Day when Ninja spoils something and Panda doesn’t appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

When was the last time you put in a 100-hour week for your job? Awww, come on now. You know you've done it. When the job (or, usually, the boss) demands it, you'll put in the time. You want that paycheck at the end of it all. And it might just help those paychecks keep coming. It's the quandary that video game developers face when it's time to finally roll out that new version of their products. Not only do their bosses demand it, but there's a whole worldful of game players who expect it. Remember how disappointed you were […] The post ESH Cast #608: Deadline has the “D” word in it for a reason appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Panda and Ninja love to buy things. When they go to the mall, it's hard to keep them out of the stores that offer those little knick knacks that make the day go a little better. Tchotchkes, baubles, doodads, geegaws, trinkets, whatever you want to call them -- that's what Panda and Ninja like to plunk down a little cash for. The same goes with the video games they play. They don't mind spending a little cash on a great-looking outfit for their players. It "completes" their look. But when microtransactions are useful only to continue playing a game they've […] The post ESH Cast #607: I use microtransactions to accessorize, not successorize appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Ninja and Panda head for opposite coasts, so you're all in for another week of an exciting new clip show. New clip show? That's right. It's stuff you haven't heard before. If you're a long-time listener, you should be used to receiving irregular doses of what we call "cutting-room floor" shows. This is the stuff we had to cut out of recent podcasts due to time constraints, but we're finally delivering it to you. Nothing goes to waste around the hallways of the ESH International Headquarters. We're presenting some relatively timely clips, including the Sistahs' preview look at the upcoming […] The post ESH Cast #605: The unofficial official podcast of ESH appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.
