Podcast-Illustration-0121On this week's episode of the TouchArcade Show, we actually manage to dive right in to iOS talk. Staring the show off with our tales of standing in line for the iPhone 5s, dealing with launch day coverage on zero sleep, and how much we've come around on touch ID. From there, we move on to the standard game chat before taking a break to come back to chat about adventures in house hunting, the three Steam announcements this week, and some crazy happenings in the iOS gaming world.

As always, feel free to listen to the podcast via the embedded player below or by subscribing via whatever service you prefer. Oh, and leave us some reviews too, those always are appreciated.

    Wow, how did I miss it?

    Anyway, I'm not so thrilled about the fact that they took the concept that they initially rejected, and are now coming back to. Pocket Planes was actually supposed to be Pocket Trains, but they changed to planes because trains can't go over water. They also stated that Pocket Planes would be the last installment with Bitizens. So they're now coming back to an already developed concept in a rushed effort to make a profit.

    The Marsh brothers are creative. I love their games, and I'll love Pocket Trains. It's just that this seems like a quick, rushed idea, and it'll get plenty of criticism for being too much like Pocket Planes. I hope it does well, though. I'm always a fan.

    I have to say guys that I thought I would really miss the mighty Brad on the podcast...but you guys haven't missed a beat! Great job. My only recommendation would be to at least acknowledge Mikey Shorts/Hooks every once in a while since you have the developer on the show as well. Only fair since you often mention the TA app & website.

    I know most people won't care, but if you guys bring the Kitty Corner back, I'll update Misu Misu Kaboom (you know, the cat that spits bombs out of its mouth), rename it back to that name AND get started on a sequel!

    As always, we enjoy the podcast stylings of Mike Meade!

    I never thought I'd say this but I actually think I prefer the podcast post-Brad. Not that that's a criticism of Brad in any way - he was great, but I prefer the slightly more in-depth and lengthy discussions that seem to occur now that Eli is host, and much of the humour has remained as well. Keep up the good work!

    Eli just needs to say "Welcome back to the TouchArcade show, that's in case you forgot" 🙂

    Keep up the great work! You too Mik3 M34D3!

    Regarding npc character that does the work for you, there are games that do have them npc managers but the kicker is you have to spend real money to use them and only last for a limited time .

    I liked your comments about adding late game automation to nimblebit games. I've made suggestions like that during their betas, but they always seem very averse to any mechanics that could be perceived at "paying not to play"
