8-4 Play 11/12/2010: JACK IT TO HARD

The 8-4 crew’s too busy working on next year’s games to have much time for this year’s offerings, so they called in intern Alex “cvxfreak” Aniel to help discuss everything they wish they were playing (but mostly aren’t). Tune in for baseless, uninformed talk about Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kinect, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, Vanquish, 25th Anniversary Super Mario Bros., and (as required by law) Call of Duty: Black Ops, not to mention the usual chit-chat on the latest news out of Japan (Inafune quits! Mikami gets bought! Uniqlo makes t-shirts!). As a great fairy once said: “LISTEN!”
