On this week's episode of the TouchArcade Show, we talk about Borderlands and discuss the power of loot lust coupled with first-person shooting. Later, we manage to throw a minute or two to the latest, hottest, and best in iPhone and iPad. Burrito Bison kicks off our games segment. Stunt Star: The Hollywood Years and Payback 2 bring up the rear, opening up discussions about open-world design and predictability.

Of course, we also talk some news and get to your user feedback and questions.

    Thank you for your great podcasts. However could you please add chapters? For example I just would like to listen to what you have to say or think about a specific game or topic (e.g. Re-volt classic) and right now I have to search for it.
