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.

Has it been a year already? It seems that we got tired of 2018 about three months in, and the rest was just an endurance race. But now we're here in 2019 and, like every year before it, it seems nothing's changed. So what're we talking about in 2019? The same thing we've been talking about since Episode 1 of this show way back in 2006: Kingdom Hearts. The very-long-awaited KH3 shows up in a few weeks, and what do we know about it? Not much, apparently. Although we were totally enamored with the first and second iteration of the […] The post ESH Cast #618: New year. Same us. appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

We see a lot of video games -- we get some for free, and we buy others. The amount of money we spend on a game has no relationship to what we think about it. We tend to like games we buy, but that's not always the case. Take, in point, games in the Assassin's Creed franchise. We absolutely adore some of them and despise others. Before starting to play the latest version, Odyssey, there were two A.C. games that we never finished. Now there is a third. It's not that we didn't try. Ninja put 74 hours into Odyssey, […] The post ESH Cast #617: I was 74 hours in when I realized I didn’t like the game appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

The year is winding down and the Sistahs are wrapping things up by concentrating on new anime and video games this week. Panda gets things started by talking about a couple of games she's played lately: Momoka and Wandersong. It's from her review of Wandersong that this week's show gets its title. Ninja also brings up an upcoming game that cleverly combines popular anime called Jump Force. Then Ninja talks about two anime she's been watching: Back Street Girls and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. Auxilliary subjects in this week's show includes nuns with guns, the problem […] The post ESH Cast #616: A musical bard saved my life — with a song appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Time changes everything. And that's particularly evident this time of year. The Sistahs spend this week's episode giving you advice on how to shop for your favorite person for the holiday season, particularly if that person is enamored with video games or anime. As formerly young people themselves, the girls come to the realization that they would be perfectly satisfied with gifts that might be considered to be mundane. While they were horrified when they got practical gifts as children, they gladly welcome socks and scarves today. They do eventually get beyond those types of presents in this week's show.

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.
