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.

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.

Ninja knows what she's good at. And she knows what she isn't good at. If she's not very good at certain types of video game, she stays plumb away from them. She doesn't go chasing waterfalls, she sticks to the rivers and the lakes that she's used to. She tries not to put down any video games she doesn't play well. She loves to watch people enthusiastically play them on game streaming and YouTube sites. She just knows better than to try to compete on that level with the experts who perform so much better than she could. But don't […] The post ESH Cast #604: I know my lane — and it’s the slow one appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

As a famouse poem says, "there is no joy in Mudville". But this week's story has nothing to do with baseball. It has to do with a video game development company. Telltale is a shadow of its usual self today. Most of its employees are hitting the internet to look for another job, rather than writing engaging stories about things like TV and movie Intellectual Property. And for most of us, we didn't know anything about their problems. There were no warning signs. Shakespeare told us that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern were dead, but we didn't even know they were sick. […] The post Episode 603: Telltale was in trouble, but they weren’t telling that tale appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Ten Dragon Quest games have come and gone, but it took the eleventh one to finally attract Pandalicious. That's right, she avoided the first ten of the games, thinking they were just a Poor Man's Final Fantasy, but she has learned her lesson. She's already 50 hours into Dragon Quest 11 and figures she's not even a third of the way through. We admire the effort. Panda's already deeply involved in Octopath Traveler, and there are quite a number of enticing games soon to come that will test her fortitude in finishing the 11th chapter of the long-running Dragon Quest.

Early on in this week's show, Ninja says the prophetic words, "Our video game and anime podcast has turned into a film and superhero podcast." The comment shows just how much the wheels flew off of the thing. Regular listeners expect the girls to trail off into the movie world, but they take it to an extreme this time when they spent most of the first 45 minutes on DC and Marvel movies. Finally, however, they do manage to spend some quality time talking about video games. Politics even rears its ugly head, as evidenced by the title of this […] The post ESH Cast #601: The best way to avoid talking about current events is to take a knee appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

A classic from the 1990s returns. That's what we learned from the recent PAX West conference. The Sistahs weren't there, but they sure wish they were. Ninja and Panda had bigger fish to fry this week. This week's show represents the 600th podcast in the series and they wanted to both be on hand for the festivities. Of course, there were no festivities to be had. Everybody else was over at PAX West. Although their anniversary shows usually feature a guest, there were simply none to be had. As a result, you have a very special episode of the ESH […] The post ESH Cast #600: Tonight my streets are gonna rage like it’s 1992 appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Just count this week's podcast title as a guide to go by. You don't really want to live with anybody who acts in such a binary way. This topic came up as part of Panda's review of the Angels of Death anime, which is an adaptation of a video game of the same name. And, although having such a boyfriend might sound exciting at first, you probably will get tired of continually having to watch your back. You shouldn't have to do that around a loved one. In this week's show, Ninja also discusses Germany's big Gamescon show, which she […] The post ESH Cast #599: You don’t want a love-me-or-die boyfriend appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

As the Sistahs determine in this week's podcast, your gamer cred is not measured by the number of consoles that are gathering dust in your closet. Your gamer cred is not the number of Xbox 360 boxes you have displayed on your wall. Your gamer cred is not your Xbox Gold card. Your gamer cred is not the number of Mario T-shirts you've accrued. Your gamer cred is not how cool your gamertag name is. Your gamer cred is not how many E3 conferences you've attended. Your gamer cred is not the signature you got of Mark Septic Eye. Your […] The post ESH Cast #598: Your gamer cred should be in your fingers, not up on the wall appeared first on ESH - 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.
