Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another Monday and another episode of The Downpour Podcast!

This week is a special episode of the podcast. While we certainly do touch on some happenings on the site, we devote much time to Jonathan, Randy, and Jared sharing their gaming stories. From childhood to youth to now, everyone has a story of how they got into gaming. And no one’s is ever the same, even when some strings of the intertwined web cross.

Have we been about niche RPGs and Japanese games our entire life? Or is there much more to each of us? It’s a lengthy show-and-tell, but we know that once you hear our stories, you’ll want to share your own—which we happily encourage! Tell us your gaming story in the comments below, share them on Twitter @downpourpodcast, or email us at downpourpodcast@oprainfall.com. We know you have your own story, and we would all love to hear them.

We always appreciate your feedback! Be sure to comment on this post or send an email to downpourpodcast@oprainfall.com.

    I just wanted to point out that Phantasy Star is not Sega’s answer to Final Fantasy. The two series came out quite literally three days from one another, and PS draws a lot more from the original Dragon Quest than any other RPG.

    An origins podcast with more members of staff would be pretty interesting, I think. It’d be cool hearing about how various members of staff got into games.

    Games that Higgins hasn’t played… Okami? Solatorobo?
