This week on The TouchArcade Show, we push through even more Skyrim discussion and other delightfully off-topic shenanigans to bring you the latest and greatest iOS talk. Because this week has been woefully light on interesting news, we instead decided to run clean-up. At the top, we discuss the 2011 games we liked the best but didn't quite make it into our GOTY show. Also, we dive into Eli's experience with OnLive on the iPad and, of course, answer your user questions.

2011 was a radical year for the site and especially this podcast. Thanks so much for tuning in over and over again and rating us so highly on iTunes. You guys are the best. Seriously. The best.

You can give this week's episode a listen via those download links listed just below. Additionally, you can download and subscribe to us over iTunes or the Zune Marketplace. The coolest people on Earth listen to us via the latter method, so get on that. Peer pressure!

    All that talk about Skyrim on the podcast made me go out and buy an xbox and the game. Thanks aholes!

        Hodapp, this is when you call Microsoft and demand commission for Netsquash's buy.  And a quick question, I believed a cat game platformer not in the "cat corner" where you fight robots, sorry for the vague description, but I used to have the game and forget what it's called.

    Misu Misu Kaboom was renamed 'Bomber Cat' =o(

    Still a great game though!

    I agree with Brads pick for most time spent in a game, Morrowind. The combat system was weak but wow the world was so immersive, the sheer variety of culture and terrain was jaw dropping and the mythology so deep.

    I played that game religiously, and didn't even pursue the main quest to defeat Dagoth Ur for over year. Actually, I killed Almalexia before starting that.

    Despite Skyrim being far superior in many ways, I personally enjoyed Morrowind more.

    I'm sorry to be offtopic, but tomorrow I'm going to be getting a Galaxy S II, and would like to find a website nearly as good as this one, but for Android gaming.  Any suggestions welcome.

    If there isn't one, let's get one started and I'll write for it 🙂

    Naturally I'll still come here for all my iPad gaming, but my phone must have games.
