When Pandalicious, Nenya and I went and saw Amanda Palmer perform with the Boston Pops this past New Year's Eve, we headed on over to the bar for some drinks. To our surprise we discovered an up-and-coming ragtime band by the name of April Smith and the Great Picture Show performing in-between Symphony Hall's two bars. After I downed an Appletini I went and pre-ordered their upcoming album Songs For A Sinking Ship, which arrived at my doorstep this past week.

The Mega64 guys crack me up constantly, and while I'm not an avid YouTuber I hope to be when I grow up so I can make videos like this one on Sony's newly release title, Heavy Rain

Hit the jump to peep it.

Yakuza 3!!! Yakuza, for the U.S., is the little open world beat-em-up that could, with sequels that were in danger of  not coming to our shores. Now there's the Yakuza 3 demo, which puts me in a precarious position, since I haven't beaten Yakuza 2 yet.

A few weeks ago I got to spend some quality time with a new microphone from Blue Microphones called the Yeti. If you getting into recording live audio or podcasts and you aren't aware of Blue Microphones' products you really should read the rest of this article.

I grew up loving audio. My uncle was a DJ and had the most amazing vinyl collection I had ever seen in my life. My dad was a huge tech fan, especially when it came to speakers so monkeying around with turntables, speakers and microphones was second nature to me by the time I was 12. When I stop to think about it, the fact that I have ended up in working in the IT industry and host an internet audio show should come as no surprise to anyone including myself. But back to the topic at hand, the Yeti.

There's only one demo that made a big splash on the PSN, and that is Heavy Rain. If you think that adventure games, detective noir, and quick time events are like a thousand ants crawling on your leg, this is not the game for you.


Still,  I would say that even if you are cautious about playing a game that is not constantly full of excitement, you should still take a chance on the demo.

What is it about Dante's Inferno that makes these women talk this way? In this week's video excerpt from Episode 185 of the ElectricSistaHood podcast, NinjaSistah and Pandalicious ponder the seven sins of this new videogame.

We all know that online gamers can be tools. We expect them to be. But what happen when it seems an Xbox Live moderator is abusing his power. Controversy ensues!

On the latest episode of Electric Sista Hood, The Sista(er)s briefly mention how great dogs are as companions in games. If you don't believe them, or you need a refresher course, here are some dogs who are down for the cause.

A new week should always start off with a new episode of the Electric Sista Hood podcast, and this week you just happen to be in luck.

As I have grown disappointed of the anime industry in the past year, I decided to search for a couple series that have yet to be licensed in America that were released before the "anime crash." One show that I came across via Crunchyroll was called Skip Beat, and man is it shiny.
