On this week’s episode of The TouchArcade show, we discuss how to pronounce games names, studio names, and regular name-names. We also find the time to discuss some hard-hitting topics like tacos, fan fervor, cat games, a prolific forum spammer, and this incredibly creepy octopus video. If you’re not into any of that, rest assured that we also chat about some of the coolest new releases and some of the hottest front page news from the week, just as we usually do.

    Jared, check out http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/ninjacat-candyfactory/id407771147?mt=8 If you have yet to, as a fellow cat lover (maybe obsessor is more accurate) I think you need to try this, free with IAP but you can earn what you need to unlock stuff without buying... As long as you don't suck at it like the people who gave it one star. It's a endless climber style game but you have to charge to jump.. Kinda hard to explain the rest of the gameplay as I'm about to go to sleep, just listened to the podcast before bed and thought I'd mention it as it's had me hooked for the past few weeks, heard bout it in chess's free game thread(which I might add should be stickied BigTime IMNS :P)... Oh and it has octopuses with helicopters. Anyway lovin the podcasts guys, keep it up!!! And screw the haters 😉 you guys are the shit.

    Is there really anyone out there who listens to an one hour podcast about iOS Games?

    • http://twitter.com/JaredTA Jared Nelson

      Yes, thousands actually. Are there really people who take the time to comment on things that don't interest them?

        I have to agree with him though. I'd take a one hour long 3ds or PSP podcast over stupid iOS any day 😉

        The past few months have been incredibly crappy for iOS games - can count on one hand the ones I've enjoyed this summer. However I would agree with your sarcasm, this has been a good year for mobile gaming!

      • Mike

        How do you know that thousands listen to the entire hour?

      • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

        We get tens of thousands of downloads, and since I can count the complaints we get on one hand... I think it's safe to assume the vast majority are downloading, listening to, and enjoying The TouchArcade Show.

      • Mike

        Oh okay, thought there was a way to actually tell.

        Great non-answer answer. Your future in politics should be glorious.

  • Spazzing

    On this week’s episode of The TouchArcade show, we discuss how to pronounce games names, studio names, and regular name-names
