On this week's wildly off-topic episode of The TouchArcade show, we dig into weight loss and buffalo wings. When we do get around to the latest, hottest, and best in iOS, we do it hard. At the top, we discuss Be-Rad Entertainment's WarGames: WOPR. Later, Eli tells us all about Crabs and Penguins, while Jared gives us his take on Unstoppable Fists. In our news section, we cover a smattering of topics, including the reveal of Horn, Temple Run as a genre, and Zynga Partners.

I want to mention here that the new official Apple podcast app is a great way to get our new stuff on the go, if you usually listen to us on your phone or tablet.

This week's episode of The TouchArcade Show is sponsored by FDG Entertainment and Ideal Bureaucracy's Captain Antarctica.

How far would you go to rescue your kidnapped wife and children? Would you team up with a crazy inventor and ride an experimental fish-powered jet scuba suit?! Would you boldly go where no penguin has gone before? YES, we hear – and that’s the spirit!

Join Captain Antarctica on a breakneck mission and help him overcome tons of devious enemies and obstacles, destroy massive bosses, and save his family and friends by making use of every crazy invention you can get! Inventor Ed has prepared powerful flashlights to overcome darkness, fish magnet add-ons, energy containers, and some of the wackiest gadgets since the invention of fruit slicing.

Captain Antarctica will be available for iPhone and iPad in July.

    You can't die in the first level of Crabs and Penguins.  After that level, however, you can definitely die.

    With regards to your diet stuff, check out the Primal Diet. It's got the ketosis thing going for it, but you can actually eat lots of good stuff (read: fat). It's not an all or nothing, but you need to be more on it than off.

    It was not fun for a week (mind was really fuzzy) but after that I started feeling superhuman and it's not a chore at all. The best thing I've gotten from the diet has been putting an importance on quality food. For the effort, I'm more energized and mentally clear than I have been in a long time. Good luck on whatever diet/fitness approach you do, :).

    Great episode guys. As far as Temple Run as a genre, I worked on Survival Run with Bear Grylls (
    http://itunes.apple.com/app/id503421893?mt=8 ) and our goal was not to just clone Temple Run, but rather to expand on it. We are already working on the next content update and are looking to add new features to a style of game that people already love.
