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.

I'm sure random dude on the internet opinion doesn't mean much to Mark's wife. But I went from a 55" to an 85" TV a couple years back and it was incredibly worth it. Even my wife warmed up to the idea after seeing it on the wall. I haven't missed going to the theater at all since then.

Hi @janman If time permits, it would be great if episode 300 (most recent) of the 8-4 Play podcast could be put up. They are celebrating the milestone and reminisce a bit about the show's history. Thanks!

@rorie@janman Hey! Just wondering if posting episodes will continue at some point, or has something changed? 8-4 still calls GB their second home at the end of each podcast. I probably would never found 8-4 Play without it showing up on GB, and that would have been a real shame. Thanks!
