In Tokyo, the holiday season brings a mix of imported Western traditions and uniquely Japanese flavors (Google “Japan KFC Christmas” if you don’t know what we mean), so that’s exactly what this T-day episode of 8-4 Play delivers. A rundown on the best Black Friday gaming deals one minute, a detailed explanation of table-flipping arcade title Cho-Chabudai Gaeshi the next. Hardcore Final Fantasy IV: The After Years and Tactics Ogre talk here, ultra-casual Pac-Man: Championship Edition DX and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood chat there. As special guest CheapyD of cheapassgamer.com would say: “There you go!”
