This week on The TouchArcade Show we discuss taco meat, vomit, chest hair, and League of Legends. Somehow, we also find the time to talk about some iPhone and iPad games. At the top of our games section, we break down what makes Talisman a good board game. Later, we argue about whether Robot Unicorn Attack 2 is the premiere release this week before we get into that House of the Dead port people seem to be digging.

Of course, we also get into some user questions and dip into a little news. We ran a wee bit long this week, so the e-mail section had to be shortened. We'll get to your letters next week though, for sure.

    I can confirm that there is something added in NZ produce that makes us great at making video games

      It's boredom. Boredom is the answer you're looking for.

  • Luigi_Mario

    According to your readers, it only took a few seconds for TouchArcade to sell out.

    You guys were talking about being upset that you can't keep your
    saved games when you delete an app from your ios device, but in fact you can!

    I use a program called iFunbox and there's another one
    called iPhoneExplorer to "explore" my phone and it gives you a list of
    all the apps on your device.

    All you have to do is select the app you want to back up your save for and drag the "Documents" folder to a location on your computer. It creates a copy, so if you ever reinstall that app just drag the documents folder from your computer to the iFunbox window and it'll add your saved data back to the app and you can pick up right where you left off!

    I've done this with many games including JetPack Joyride, Fruit Ninja, GOF2 HD etc... works like a charm.
