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 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.

When was the last time you put in a 100-hour week for your job? Awww, come on now. You know you've done it. When the job (or, usually, the boss) demands it, you'll put in the time. You want that paycheck at the end of it all. And it might just help those paychecks keep coming. It's the quandary that video game developers face when it's time to finally roll out that new version of their products. Not only do their bosses demand it, but there's a whole worldful of game players who expect it. Remember how disappointed you were […] The post ESH Cast #608: Deadline has the “D” word in it for a reason appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Panda and Ninja love to buy things. When they go to the mall, it's hard to keep them out of the stores that offer those little knick knacks that make the day go a little better. Tchotchkes, baubles, doodads, geegaws, trinkets, whatever you want to call them -- that's what Panda and Ninja like to plunk down a little cash for. The same goes with the video games they play. They don't mind spending a little cash on a great-looking outfit for their players. It "completes" their look. But when microtransactions are useful only to continue playing a game they've […] The post ESH Cast #607: I use microtransactions to accessorize, not successorize appeared first on ESH - ElectricSistaHood.

Free is such a magical word, isn't it? It invokes such hopeful things. The best things in life are free. You are now free to move about the cabin. The truth will set you free. Trouble free. Free and easy. Free throw. Pain free. Free love. Cruelty free. Free spirited. Risk free. Free-for-all. Tax free. Free will. Toll free. Free trade. Scot free. Freebird. Home free. Free market. Freeway. Freelance. Free rein. Freedom of the press. Get out of jail free. The free thing we talk about this week? A video game. That's right. It's $60 you can keep in […] The post ESH Cast #606: You got me at free appeared first on ESH - 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.

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.
