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 pose a valid question in this week's show. How, exactly, are they able to make scary scarier? Of course, we don't answer the question -- we're leaving that all up to you. Instead, we spend considerable time talking about the upcoming game Evil Within 2. With a name like that, it is vital that the sequel end up being scarier than the original. The sequel has to try to be more than its earlier chapter, right? And whether or not you agree with Panda's take on the subject, she freely and openly offers it up -- you have to […] The post ESH Cast #542: How do they make scary scarier? appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Although we were separated by almost 3,000 miles, it didn't keep us from having definite opinions about the E3 show that concluded this week. As usual, we're full of it. Full of E3. Full of eight-dollar hot dogs. And full of the knowledge that we gained at the annual video game show held in Los Angeles. And we didn't hold back. In this week's show, we talk about a wide variety of subjects. If you're into name dropping, how about these for size? Xbox One X, Cuphead, Perfect Dark, Seagate Game Drive Hub for Xbox, Ori and the Will of […] The post ESH Cast #541: It’s not just a game, it’s an experience appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

It's sister versus sister in this week's big battle royale. Except they don't really hate each other. In fact, they love each other. You wouldn't know it by listening to NinJaSistah and Pandalicious that either they ever agreed or disagreed with one another. Anyone who has listened to them for the past 11 years knows that they are liable to come right out of left field with a disarming comment. That's what makes them so loveable to everyone else. As Ninja surveys the new field of video games at E3 this week, the girls are taking a week off, resulting […] The post ESH Cast #540: It only sounds like fighting appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Ninja was calmly spending Saturday morning like all Saturday mornings -- recovering from the hectic week by sleeping. Suddenly, she was awoken by a text message. Panda said she was 15 minutes away and asked what Ninja wanted from McDonalds. Thus began a whirlwind day of gaming. Panda arrived with an armload of goodies from McDonalds and Ninja hurriedly threw together the appropriate controllers and such so Panda could guide Ninja through the travails of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch. Luckily, a quick-thinking producer suggested that the girls mic themselves so their exploits […] The post ESH Cast #539: We’re adulting — and playing Zelda appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

We don't want to make it sound like we're bragging, but we've got our own predetermined vision of the future. It makes life much more convenient that way. At least, that's what it sounds like in this week's show. Panda's back from a sun-and-fun honeymoon in the Caribbean and has come face-to-face with the reality that is the run-up to this year's E3 show in Los Angeles in a couple of weeks. So Ninja spends the show catching Panda up on the latest developments. If you've similarly had your head in a hole this week, you might be in a […] The post ESH Cast #538: I’m probably wrong, but here’s what’s going to happen appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

As you might be able to tell from this week's podcast title, there's a lot of swearing and rhyming. It's another clip show, and this one has to do with music. You see, we make a lot of references to songs in our shows. Sometimes, like in a Hollywood musical, we suddenly break out into song. We simply can't help ourselves. And you, as a result, are the happy recipient of our tendencies. Not only do you get to hear us sing, but you also get to compare our singing with the original song. And now, in conjunction with Amazon, […] The post ESH Cast #537: Rhymes with Other Truckers appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Actually, you can't blame us for turning Arizona into a frightening place. They're doing that all themselves. Some of the latest video games extoll the scary possibilities of the place. It is, after all, the home state of Barry Goldwater and Timothy McVeigh. Danger is its middle name. But we kid. It's just happenstance. It could happen to any of our glorious 50 states. Or, at least, that's what we're trying to convince ourselves. (It is no coincidence that we live half a world away in Massachusetts). And that's just a minute piece of what we talk about in this […] The post ESH Cast #536: We turn Arizona into a frightening, frightening place appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

The biggest news thus far in 2017 about video gaming has been the overwhelming introduction of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Sistahs have not been immune to the hype, either. As a result, they devote the entirety of this week's show to the Zelda game. Panda got a head start on Ninja this time, having played the game for much of the month of April. Ninja is a latecomer, having had the new Nintendo Switch for only about a week. So much of the discussion relies on questions from Ninja to Panda about the inner workings […] The post ESH Cast #535: I thought I was going to blow through Zelda.

As the saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. And that old saying is very much in evidence around the ESH hacienda this week. What has changed? Ninja has just received a brand new Nintendo Switch, heralding the dawning of a new era. At the same time, she has given up on the old Wii U and sold it to GameStop, which must think they actually have a use for it beyond an extra doorstop. What has stayed the same? That will become more than evident once you start listening to this week's show. As […] The post ESH Cast #534: My opinion of the new Nintendo console has switched appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Everybody managed to stay within voice this week, meaning that this show is brand, spanking new. And, as with most episodes after a hiatus, it quickly devolved into tangents. And this week's show has a tangent that takes up most of the time. Ninja and Panda got caught up in comic book canon as they discussed the things that are right and wrong about past and upcoming comic book movies with characters from DC and Marvel. As you can tell from the title of the show, they spend a lot of time discussing the minutiae of the ages of certain […] The post ESH Cast #533: We spend time carbon dating X-Men appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.
