The Out-Cast: EP.4 – Being a Gamer in Japan

What on earth is the Out-Cast?
Well, this was a series of podcasts I did back in 2010~2012 on videogames and videogame culture in Japan for an old website with a completely different crew.
I’m republishing them here on DecultureShock, but for anyone who is interested, the original website can be found here.

Welcome to our fourth regular episode of the outcast. This one runs for a bit over three hours and we look in-depth at being a gamer in Japan and the PSP’s 5th Birthday.
Download below and please leave us any comments on how we can improve this podcast. Thanks for listening.
