8-4 Play 9/30/2011: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHIN’

30 September 2011

With Mark out of town on business and Tokyo Game Show now behind us, life at 8-4 towers has pretty quiet lately. But that’s no excuse not to record a podcast! …OK, actually, it kind of is, but we went ahead and recorded one anyway! Tune in to hear us talk about Dark Souls, Zelda: Four Swords 25th Anniversary Edition, the Diablo III beta, porntips from Thailand (not what you think!), “Lucky Lassi” Monster Hunter drinks from Family Mart (…probably what you think), and plenty more.
