Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another Monday, and another episode of The Downpour Podcast! With Randy as our Managing Editor, things are becoming a bit more structured around these parts.

To open, Jonathan discusses his latest obsession (look out, world) intertwined with talk of old school Final Fantasy and new school Final Fantasy. After a brief diversion on Square-Enix, the discussion moves on to encompass Level-5 & Studio Ghibli collaborations, Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate, the Playstation 4, the Vita, the key differences between a chicken and a chocobo, and…much, much more, folks.

The final half-hour of the show is focused on anime. What exciting stuff do Jared and Randy have to talk about this week? Will Jonathan eventually be able to join their discussion? Speaking of: what Studio Ghibli movie did Jonathan choose for his first-ever viewing? All these questions and more are answered.

    Oh man. I could write a book on what’s wrong with FFXIII. Just… Ugh.

    Entertaining as always, gentlemen! This should be called the Josh Conversion Podcast, since it’s about Vita and Anime… 😉 You should consider a segment of the podcast for anime noobs such as myself, with Jared and Randy suggesting where to begin, etc. Also, Persona 4 Golden was really close to forcing me to buy a Vita…
