Timestamps for the Last of Us stuff?

Edited by Undeadpool

@hassun: That appears to have been an error in the description, there is no Last of Us talk.

Every time I listen to a new 8-4 podcast I get sad that it's not weekly.

Breath of fire 6... I want it more than any other game now! This made my freaking day. I can not get hammer fu**ed at the bar tonight in an awesome mood.

Great. Giant Bomb is getting "Work from home on your computer for millions of dollars!" spam bullshit now. At least it's not soccer games?

minor correction for you guys, they will be releasing a complete killer instinct game where you can buy the whole thing for one price.

i do agree though that game looks middling.

I'm glad their intern girl chose Trials and Tribulations as her favorite Phoenix Wright game. She made the right choice.

WTF is that photo? I know that middle row, 2nd from the left is the winnah tho'.

That person speaking about logos in the outro sounds like GB's Alexis, but I'm not entirely certain.

I do wonder about the fate of the WiiU though. I mean, you can't count it out from making a turn-around, but where is that must-have game? "X" is that title for me, but I don't see any other games on the horizon that are different enough to justify the console on their own.

the japanese lady might like that phoenix wright game more after she beats it, cause that last case is pretty nutssss.

but i agree though phoenix wright 3 > phoenix wright 2

but for me nothing beats the first games final case against von karma. and the last case in apollo justice is pretty great.

kinda surprised you guys were down on the phoenix wright vs professor layton. game especially when the villain can rewrite events.

The second phoenix Wright game has the best final case but everything before that is just average.

I haven't listened yet, but I wanted to ask if any of you have seen, or were planning to see The Wolverine.

I know it's coming out late in Japan, maybe even in a month or two, because presumably they'll modify some scenes (like the atomic bomb dropping on Nagasaki). At least I think they do that kind of modification for movies releasing in Japan.

Also, I was just wondering about the way Japan is portrayed in The Wolverine. Seemed kind of goofy to me, but I've never been there. By the way, do the above ground bullet trains go through cities or mostly outside cities?

8-4 is the best, slowly becoming my favorite podcast because where else can hear about Japan, games and Japanese games

I fell asleep towards the end but when talk about logos started happening my eyelids flew open and mt ears perked up. Being a graphic design major I agree 100% with what was said.

I can't speak about the Wolverine stuff since I don't intend to watch that movie, let alone in Japan, but I can speak from experience that bullet train routes go through a mixture of urban and rural areas. They're naturally only going to be mostly useful for people wanting to reach major hubs from one part of the country to another in a timely manner, so they have to go through at least some cities as a matter of practicality. But on the other hand, noise and infrastructure concerns are also obviously present, so weaving your way through less populated areas is also ideal whenever possible. However, I can speak from experience that if you're going from, say, Osaka or Kyoto to Tokyo that each end of the line will take you through the hearts of those cities and pretty much every other really major city in-between.

You might want to change your major.
