ESH Cast #484: I Hate the Words “Coming Soon.” (Don’t Lie to Me. Don’t Lie)

The Sistahs discuss Nintendo NX and the anime "The Lost Village"

If you've ever watched the proceedings at any of the press conferences at a show like E3, you know the feeling. One of the big companies promoting a new video game shows a fantastic preview of a new thing they're developing.

It's a marvelous trailer -- showing action and capabilities you've never seen in a video game before. There are fantastic characters rendered so perfectly, you swear they couldn't be done in a mere game. You sit there and watch for seemingly an endless eternity. Then the screen goes black and the words appear: "Coming Soon."

And then reality sets in. Soon? Sure. And you start shaking your head "No." It may be coming soon -- but not soon enough for you.

That's the reality NinJaSistah and Pandalicious face in this week's ElectricSistahood podcast. What with a new console coming out next year for Nintendo, the reality sets in that the Zelda game they've been waiting for the past three years is going to play best on the console that hasn't been released yet, not on their already-purchased Wii U.

But the depression doesn't bring them down too far. Although they discuss the ramifications of Nintendo's next console release, they also discuss an anime they both enjoy, "The Lost Village," as well as some additional notes from last week's PAX East conference in Boston, which they both attended.

In all, it makes for an enjoyable show. Enjoy it for yourself, as the Sistahs present ESH Cast #484: I Hate the Words “Coming Soon.” (Don’t Lie to Me. Don’t Lie)..
