Every other week, tune into 8-4 Play for talk about Japan, video games, and Japanese video games, straight from the 8-4 offices in beautiful downtown Tokyo. Featuring the sultry voices of 8-4's own Mark MacDonald, John Ricciardi, Hiroko Minamoto, Justin "JJ" Epperson, Roy Blakely, Sarah Podzorski, and Graeme Howard.

This week we touch briefly on The Last of Us--or how it makes us feel things. Dark things. Then it's business as usual with talk of the latest Pokémon news, the joy of mining, and of course Strong Zero.
