Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to another Monday and another episode of The Downpour Podcast!

Did you guys know? Jared was in Japan. This week’s episode is all about that! Randy and Jonathan catch up with their well-traveled friend as he accounts the greatest moments from his trip. What did he see? More importantly, what did he buy? This episode seeks to answer those kinds of questions, for all who are curious.

But don’t worry! The three hosts also talk about what they’ve been playing and watching. Jared talks about the games that traveled with him to Japan, what he brought back, and the occasional mention of Super Mario Bros. 3Randy continues to conquer his backlog with mentions of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: FULL BURST and Mass Effect 3. And Jonathan, slowly but surely beginning his descent into retro-gaming madness, talks about the three games he bought (and played) from the Game Boy era–Adventure Island II: Aliens in Paradise, Bomberman GB, and Final Fantasy Legend III. More madness to come! Determined to stay modern to some extent, though, Jonathan also talks about Kirby Triple Deluxe. His reaction to the game may surprise you! Anime talk concerns magical girls, and how Jared’s magical trip to Japan may or may not have left the man a little too distracted to watch much.

Enjoy the show this week! As usual, we always appreciate your feedback. Please let us know how you feel in the comments below or by sending an email to downpourpodcast@oprainfall.com.
