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.

It's a show about video games and anime, right? You wouldn't think that by listening to the first eight minutes of this week's show. The program goes completely off the rails for a little while, but returns to a steady course after that, we're glad to say. Once we get back to the usual subjects, we discuss the Assassin's Creed series in general and how that all leads us to the upcoming Assassin's Creed Origins game [Xbox One | PS4]. Will we play it? The jury is still out on that one. Depends on what we see on YouTube, I […] The post ESH Cast #558: We’re already off the exit to Tangent Town appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Everyone needs positive recognition -- that's a fact that the Sistahs suddenly realize about midway through recording this week's show. As a result, it's an appropriate title for the podcast. NinJaSistah and Pandalicious discuss the usual wide range of topics this week, including the Great Szechuan Sauce giveaway this past weekend at McDonald's (and, no, they didn't get any). Among the normal gaming- and anime-related subjects, they discuss the just-released Cuphead game [Xbox One/Windows 10 | PC] , in which the use of 1930s-style animation is a major distraction. Things weren't like this in the old 8-bit days. Another major […] The post ESH Cast #557: Everybody wants an attaboy appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

For the first time in what seems like forever, Xenocore joins the Sistahs for this week's rollicking podcast. Xeno is an old friend of the show, having appeared many times in past episodes, and he returns in good spirits, with plenty to add to the discussion of both video games and anime. Specifically, Xeno contributes his opinions about League of Legends, the new Gamers anime, the Knights and Magic anime and Rage of Bahamut. Ninja starts off the program expressing her lust for the new hotness: 4K TV sets, and all the things that go well with them, such as […] The post ESH Cast #556: Ain’t nobody got time for time travel appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

The weather dramatically changed in Massachusetts recently -- from hot to cold and back hot again, and it's done a number on Ninja and Panda. It hit Ninja first, affecting her at work on Friday, then carried through the weekend. She couldn't go to the Boston Festival of Indie Games (BFIG) and threatened to take out this week's podcast. Panda wasn't affected as quickly, and attended BFIG with some friends, but she developed some kind of crud at the show and deteriorated greatly before the podcast recording on Sunday afternoon. But both of them got their act together and powered […] The post ESH Cast #555: The Sistahs are not on top of their game this week appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

We present everything in black and white on this week's show. And we try to accomplish that without getting red all over. It's hard out there for a geek. Especially when you're a geek of color. There are lots of unthinking 12-year-olds out there, and they aren't necessarily bound to just one age group. We try really hard not to draw a certain card out of the deck, but sometimes there it is -- in plain sight. And, in the 21st century, it's difficult to call a spade by its name. So we deal with some less-than-comfortable subjects this week, […] The post ESH Cast #554: Act like you’re from Massachusetts. Never end any word with an R appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Ninja and Panda were both back home where they belong this week, but they were both chock full of games, travel and movies. Ninja had just returned from Washington state, where she attended both the PAX Dev developer's conference and the adjoining PAX West conference. Although she had been there 10 years ago, she says it has seemed to shrink greatly. Perhaps it's all that rain it gets. In the meantime, Panda has seen the Stephen King movie It. Having also read the book, she says she enjoyed it greatly. It's not getting such great reviews from everyone, probably mostly […] The post ESH Cast #553: Destiny rears its ugly head — ain’t that great? appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

We've been doing this weekly podcast for 11 years, and even with more than 550 episodes recorded, we have to admit that we're not perfect. We have to admit that there are sometimes when we get a little long-winded. We go on tangents. We get into protracted arguments. And then we find we are starting to run a little long. It's a policy at ElectricSistaHood that our shows never go more than 80 minutes long. That seems to be about the maximum amount anybody wants to sit there and listen to us drone on. So when we go a little […] The post ESH Cast #552: You heard it here last appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

It's getting perilously close to the holiday shopping season, and Ninja is already frightened of all that space she has left over in her pocket book. What was once green is now bare. And that means that a leather money-holder is now in control of things. With the Xbox One X and the SNES Classic coming out, she might be forced to go without for a while longer. But that doesn't stop her from dreaming, and some of her dreams come alive in this podcast. While Ninja laments her lack of an Xbox One X, she realizes she probably isn't […] The post ESH Cast #551: My wallet’s making all of my decisions for me appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

If there's one thing Panda prides herself on, it's her reputation as a completionist. In most every game she plays, she's the one who can be depended upon to collect every trinket that comes her way. Just don't depend on her doing that very quickly, though. She'll admit that to you, as she does during this week's ElectricSistaHood podcast. She'll get that last bauble... eventually. You might not be able to set your clock by it, but you can certainly set your sundial for it to happen one of these days. The game in question was an early Sonic game, […] The post ESH Cast #550: Sure, I’m a completionist, but I’m lazy, too appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

We designed this week's podcast as one that you can both see and hear -- at least, that's the plan. As you will hear, we spend the entire show playing the early stages of the video game Overcooked. And, with any luck, you'll be able to see us play it on our You Tube channel. That's the plan anyway. Seeing it is actually going to take a few more days, but we're very hopeful. And what should you expect to see? If you've played or seen Overcooked, it is a game in which partners operate the backend operations of a […] The post ESH Cast #549: It’s not about perfection — except it is appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.
