8-4 Play 7/15/2011: ¡QUE MAGNIFICO!

15 July 2011

Played Shadows of the Damned? You should! Why? 1) Read the reviews, it’s a great game! 2) We here at 8-4 worked on it! 3) Oh yeah, so did some other guys, Suda 51 and Shinji Mikami. 4) You will enjoy this podcast a helluvalot more, since we discuss the soundtrack with legendary game musician Akira Yamaoka and talk shop about creating the script. When you tire of our self-congratulatory nonsense, there’s plenty more chit-chat about Xenoblade, PS4 motion controls, Dragon’s Crown, Final Fantasies XIII-2 and Theatrhythm, and more. Do me, do m—er, do it!

Frankly, it’s too damn hot in Tokyo to spend much energy writing up a fancy description of our latest episode, so let’s just cut the crap, OK? We talk about Operation Rainfall’s attempt to bring Wii JRPGs to the West, Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D save file-gate, Journey (the game and the band), Wii U, famed game director Yasumi Matsuno moving to developer Level-5, yadda yadda yadda.
