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.

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.

There are two truths you should always abide: Never watch an elevator being repaired and never watch sausage being made. You just don't want to know what goes into either service. You may never ride an elevator again, and you may never eat sausage again. Panda found a third truth this past week: Never expect anything good out of the anime King's Game. You can hear all the sordid tales on this week's show. You'll also hear of Ninja's disappointment with the anime Evil or Live, which she still can't decide the proper pronunciation of the word "Live" in the […] The post ESH Cast #564: You can’t put crap in one end and get a good anime out of the other appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Electronic Arts learned the true meaning of infuriation this week. They crossed the wrong people. And who are the wrong people? The video game players who also frequent social media. I don't need to explain it all here. Ninja and Panda lay it all out very succinctly in their podcast this week, so you can here it all in there. Suffice it to say that EA won't be making as much money as they would have liked. Players may have to spend a little more time with the game, but they'll be able to afford plenty of caffeinated drinks along […] The post ESH Cast #563: They should’ve called it Star Wars: Money Grab appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

For the Sistahs of the ElectricSistaHood, playing video games used to be hunting and killing. But as they've grown older, there's a new aspect of gaming that overrides merely taking aim. They demand that the game has a worthwhile story. That aspect of gaming shows up in both the games the girls have been playing lately. For Ninja, the game is Assassin's Creed Origins. Although Ninja says the game forces the player to become an inventory clerk, she's certain that there's a good story there. She has as yet to find it. Panda is certain of the same thing in […] The post ESH Cast #562: There’s a very good story in here somewhere appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Don't worry. We haven't started to sell naming rights to our shows. The name of the company you see in our title is not a real business -- it's the name of Ninja's co-runners in Destiny 2. If you think you've heard that before, you just might have. You see, this week's podcast is a clip show. Ninja is away on business for her day job, so both she and Panda have been given a break by offering this episode filled with funny bits from previous episodes. So you'll hear such timeless bits as Panda's invention of a concept called […] The post ESH Cast #561: Girthy Pete's Tasty Meats appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

As Thomas Jefferson said, there are things that are self-evident. One of those, according to Panda, is that great-looking water makes a great game. And that's precisely what she found in newly released Super Mario Odyssey. Panda was even able to figure out the connection between the new Nintendo game and Homer's epic The Odyssey. And she has a college degree to prove it. Those revelations and more are what you can expect from this week's show. Ninja, meanwhile, has been so busy, she's only able to manage some updates on Destiny 2 [PS4 | PC] and the new South […] The post ESH Cast #560: Good-looking water is the hallmark of a great game appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

In the 11 years that Ninja and Panda have been doing their weekly podcast, they have devoted the entire show to a single subject only twice. The first week, way back in 2006, they talked about the game Kingdom Hearts. And now, this week, they talk about South Park: The Fractured but Whole [Xbox | PC] -- for the entire show. The reason for their emphasis on Kingdom Hearts back in 2006 was easy -- it was their very first podcast and they were simply feeling their way through their first show. But the reason for devoting their 559th show […] The post ESH Cast #559: The South Park game is sooooo South Parky appeared first on ESH - 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.
