This week on the TouchArcade Show, we dedicate half the show to Paradox Con 2013. Both Eli and The Bearded Dude are there right now and have been seeing and eating all sorts of cool stuff, so we figured you'd want to know about it. Later in the show, we do get to the latest, greatest, and best in iPhone and iPad. Minecraft - Pocket Edition and Banana Kong leads off our games discussion, while travel greats like Super Hexagon and The Blockheads close it out. We also dive into some news, including the announcement of the Next Great Nimblebit gmae. Buckle up.

If you'd like to listen to us this week, just bang one of the links below. You can also subscribe to us via iTunes or Zune. This is the coolest way to listen to us since you'll get our latest shows the second they hit the Internet and don't even need to bother with manually downloading them. Neat, right?

Just a minor note: this week's audio is a little weird because that's what happens when you talk to people over the Internet using hotel Wi-Fi in another country. We'll be back to normal next week.

And here are your show notes:

    A missed chance: only achievements, no leaderboard. Also, installed size is 249 MB on my iPad2

    'nother great show, guys.

    it was cool hearing about iceland and those upcoming games. i'm sure they're all too hard for me, but they sound fun. i agree with hodap about the company's pricing ideas. i can tell you with 100% certainty that i'm never going to drop more than $5 (was that high enough to not make eyes roll?) on a deep strategy game that i've got no idea about. if anything, something like summoner wars where the game is free/cheap for entry, and if you get into it more, you can buy expansions.

    also, really great hearing extended love for spaceteam. i feel like it gets pooped on a lot because people are just playing with one other person (or by themselves on two devices...or they're just pissed that they have no one to play with). it's really fun, and you guys are right, it's not just for 'gamers'. i got several non-gamer friends to get it, and we played it all night. and i've heard they continue playing sometimes when i'm not around. that's pretty awesome.
