One of the best!

Love this podcast especially when Mark is on. Wish they would talk about Wizardry once and awhile since they are in Japan.

Years later - still fantastic!

Updated 6/1/18: the show has seen a lot of upheaval over the last year or so with longtime co-hosts and fan favorite new folks leaving. I was worried, but they’ve handled it with aplomb. Some chairs are rotating a little more now (I love Masa’s perspective!) and we are getting a little more everyday BS, which I know isn’t everyone’s bag, but I personally love. Looking forward to many more debates about questionable cheap “tacos.”

Original review: Not everyone is on every episode - even Mark who typically hosts - but every episode is worth listening to if you're truly into "games, Japan, and Japanese games". Guests are typically memorable and even when I haven't known who they were before their appearance it is quickly apparent why they're there (see: Kevin Gifford on the NES & SNES retrospectives.) Keep up the great work!
