This week on the TouchArcade Show, we are joined by Special Guest Joseph Leray because Eli's European hotel Wi-Fi isn't, uh, so great. But don't worry: we manage to bring the pain without our favorite president-in-chief of a web site on the Internet. At the top, we discuss the THQ auction and what it means for the industry. Later, we dive into some of the latest and greatest iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch games including notables like Wave Trip, Traal, and Might & Magic.

In the second segment, we discuss some of this week's biggest news and get to some more user comments, questions, and feedback. Jared also reveals that he's been a naughty boy on Amazon, if you're into that sort of thing.

    Yeah, I also wrote a 5 star review, noting my username, but did not get anything. Happy to give it either way, I love the podcast, but if you're still giving them out, then I'd be happy to take one!

    Same here. Haven't heard anything back yet. I reviewed the podcast last summer too when they were also giving out codes, but didn't get anything then either. Anyway, I still like the show!
