8-4 Play: 05/04/2018: BEET STREET

It’s Golden Week at 8-4! But we gather around the podcast table to talk TV shows, comic book movies, and video games just the same! Mostly video games though, honest.

Every other week, tune into 8-4 Play for talk about video games, Japan, and Japanese video games, straight from the 8-4 offices in beautiful downtown Tokyo. Hosted by 1UP Japan's own Mark MacDonald, John Ricciardi, and Hiroko Minamoto.
