On this week's episode of The TouchArcade Show, we battle through discussions on farts*, beards, and Dredd in order to bring you the latest, greatest, and best in iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch gaming. At the top of our games section, the guys roast the latest Final Fantasy game while I struggle with why it's not hitting me as terrible. We also discuss Temple Run 2 and its iterative design. Later, we dive back into The Blockheads, as well as Zenonia 5. Lots of game talk this week.

After the break, we hit up some news. We talk about Minecraft, what makes it special, and how many units it sold in 2012. We also get into some racing game design theory, of all things. Weird, right?
