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

All was quiet in the lives of Jonathan, Jared and Randy. But then…everything changed. Everything they’d been waiting for happened; news came in droves, games got released, so much was played, so much anime was watched…there’s just so much to talk about. On top of all that, we’re continuing our new segment featuring special guests, this time with Chris Garcia (https://twitter NULL.com/WildCardCorsair) from 8bitfix (http://www NULL.8bitfix NULL.com/). This show was so unbelievably jam-packed that we had to split it into two parts. Click here for Part 2, which features all kinds of anime talk! 

What’s on the show this week? All of our latest reviews and editorials, some Theatrhythm talk, a dash of Monster Hunter, and some talk about the Nintendo Q3 Financial Results Meeting. Also: how do the three hosts feel about Sonic Boom and the new direction of the Sonic brand? Results may vary. Games discussed include PlayStation All-Stars: Battle RoyaleLightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (Demo), The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of Lions, and…wait for it…Pokemon Bank! There’s more where that came from, including some titles you wouldn’t expect. 

Chris sat down to talk with us about Handheld Gaming. Expect discussion on everything from Killzone Mercenary and Velocity Ultra to Super Mario 3D Land and Shin Megami Tensei IV. There’s plenty of love for both the PlayStation Vita and the Nintendo 3DS.  For those of you interested in the interview, it starts at 1:33:05
