8-4 Play: 8-4 Play 7/7/2023: FANG IN THERE

Mark’s out, John’s out, and we’re locked out of the office! That won’t stop this ragtag crew from gathering online to discuss the PC Engine’s Fang of Alnam, debate the merits of the Pikmin 4 demo’s tutorials, and best of all, catch up with our pal, Roy!

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.
