Podcast-Illustration-0121On this week's episode of The TouchArcade Show, we make a big-time effort to stay on the topic of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. At the top of the show, we talk about Bloodmasque and what makes it so hilarious. We also give some time to a couple of updates, including the now-released Ridiculous Fishing update. Also, we lay down some thoughts on emulation and the now-closed Enterprise loophole folks were using.

Later, we discuss Riptide GP2 and our fond memories of wave racing games (and N64 titles in general). We also dive into some news items, including the reveal of Angry Birds Star Wars II, the fact that EA is now making more money on the App Store than Origin and some other good stuff.

    By the the show you guys were talking about with the planes and flashing lights on the screen is/was Captain Power and The Soldiers of The Future. A CG and live action kids show from the late 80s. 87 to 88, in fact.

    Good show as always.

    35:35 Brad says, "That person was never buying a real video game anyway"
    So, congratulations to Sales for snagging Big Fish Games' "Dark Manor" this week. It's an extraordinary app. No kidding.
    For the past three weeks it been running on "the other" iPad here. every twenty minutes or so and, yes it it exactly what you think it is. Hidden objects meets FarmVille. Cow tipping deluxe with really outstanding graphics plus puzzles. There's lots to do when you combine building and solving with BFG's newest tech goodies. $5 IAP buys enough for an outstanding social game experience.
    Not my game but one of the best I've seen this year. We didn't find it through TA. Did it ever got more than a nod? Not that it matters. It isn't a "real video game anyway".
    Great show again this week.
