What’s the best way to make it through your case of the Mondays? A new episode of The Downpour Podcast, of course!

When we sat down to record this episode we were on the eve of the new generation of consoles. Here we are now – living in that new generation. Before celebrating all the new shinies on our way we wanted to talk about the favorite and stand-out games of the past gen of PS3/360/Wii (Wow, that feels weird to say those systems are last gen.) and we get a TON of thoughts from you, our readers and listeners. Then it’s into the good stuff with the big news hits.

It’s also no secret that Jonathan and Randy are big Sonic fans and Jonathan has even reviewed the Blue Blur’s newest adventure which means we’ve got lots of hedgehog to talk about. And Jared? Well, he may be new to the franchise, but he picked up Sonic Generations and has some words he’d like to say regarding his thoughts on SEGA’s mascot.

The guys also get hype for Space Dandy, the new anime headed our way from Cowboy Bebop mastermind Shinichiro Watanabe. Televised simulcast? Now THAT is interesting!

Plus a whole lot more! So strap in for the newest iteration of The Downpour Podcast – it’s gonna be a fun ride!
