This afternoon I showed Brad just how mad my skills are in Mad Skills BMX [$0.99]. It's another one of those side-scrolly physics-powered racing games, and feels like an evolution of the developer's previous title, Mad Skills Motocross [$0.99].

The main difference here (aside from graphical upgrades and things like that) is the addition of a neat swipe control method. I'm still not really sure how I feel about it, since, weirdly enough, virtual buttons just seem more "natural" to me in games like this. I realize how crazy that sounds, but Brad and I dig into that as I play through the whole tutorial. We also get on a weird tangent regarding just how disappointing Tony Hawk Pro Skater's Xbox Live Arcade re-release was. I'm not sure what that has to do with anything, but, whatever.

    I really enjoy watching all these TA plays videos because you guys have really fun commentary and you can tell you have good vibes with each other, but it's weird how you always endorse all the games in videos you make, like this one for example you didn't seem that into the game but you still recommended it at the end, I think an honest opinion would be better, do you ever do a video for games which you wouldn't recommend?

      We usually don't waste time with bad games since I think people come to TouchArcade to discover new cool titles to load on their iPhones. It's not challenging at all to find bad things on the App Store. πŸ™‚

    I second that as far as being a fan of the videos and podcasts. You guys do seem to have a good time and i like the fact that you guys talk about console games, as well, albeit briefly.
