Welcome to another Monday and another episode of The Downpour Podcast!

This week: join Jonathan, Randy and Jared as they recap the holidays! What games did they play with family and friends? What games did they manage to sneak away and plan on their own? You’ve got questions—they’ve got answers. The show starts off with plenty of Mario talk, then discusses recent news about things like Phantasy Star Online 2, Mighty No. 9, and the December 18th Nintendo Direct. Games discussed include Super Mario 3D World, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, The Wind Waker HD, Tearaway, and much more.

This week in anime: expect some talk about Akira and Wolf Children, as well as Kill la Kill, the recent announcements regarding Sword Art Online, the ending of Valvrave The Liberator (minus spoilers), and more! This show is certainly worthy of being our first of 2014. Stay tuned for Episode 42 headed your way on Monday, January 27th, 2014.
