8-4 Play: 8-4 Play 10/15/2021: GOOD AS DREAD

This week, we all curl up into very tight balls and barge into Jerry’s apartment to talk about nothing. Just kidding! We actually talk about Metroid Dread and big TVs.

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.
