Podcast-Illustration-0121On the eve of the iTunes freeze, Jared, Mike, and I all joined together to listen to Jared attempt to operate his $6 slide whistle, which is a thing that actually exists- Joining the library of dumb crap Jared owns such as eagle talon backscratchers. Oh, and we talk about the latest and greatest iOS games, get into how tired we are of the supermarket impulse buy candy display of power ups in games, and touch on some of the hottest news of the week.

Pizza Vs. Skeletons, $2.99 - Do you love pizza but hate skeletons? Kick some brittle undead ass in the award-winning game Pizza Vs. Skeletons from Riverman Media.

Control a 25-foot pizza as you bash skeletons, learn karate, rescue puppies, demolish skyscrapers, grow a mohawk, raid a meat factory, and much, much more in the most ridiculous pepperoni-based game ever to hit your iPhone or iPad.

Pizza Vs. Skeletons was one of the top 10 reviewed games on MetaCritic in 2012, and it's on sale this week for $2.99 on the App Store.

    I wouldn't mind kicking some "undead brittle ass"

    Nintendo will make scads of money going mobile. It'll be gross. They technically were the emperors of mobile games for decades. Experiment in mobile game? They are gonna turn into Scrooge mcduck. Good for them! Anyone else interesting in seeing a Nintendo phone? Hmmm wouldn't be too difficult. Little bit of catchup and bingo bango! (I doubt there's go this way though, making their own hardware would be a large gamble even if they went with android or something).

    They will however easily make a disgusting amount of cash simply producing their own software with their own content. That won't be a gamble. They will make millions. What's this a brand new Mario game for iphone/android? Woah! Paper Mario? Bought. Pokemon? Bought. Metroid? Kirby? OMG OMG omg omg I'll be broke! They must be feeling a hit on their handheld systems now that's why they are "experimenting". God, they'll make tons off that IP of theirs.

      They're taking a huge bath on WiiU sales right now. Their handheld stuff is the only thing really making them any money right now. I'll be pretty psyched to see Nintendo stuff on mobile though!

    Seasons Greetings to E, J and M along with everyone here on the forums. It's been a great year hasn't it?
    Back in the day when I was in Toastmasters International we would keep an Oops Jar and collect a pittance when speakers fell into verbal clichés. If we could do that for "I dunno…", "I suppose…", and "ya…well…" we would all be able to celebrate Christmas in Hawaii next year.
    Jus'sayin'. You know I kid.
    Meantime everyone's invited to my place for some real egg nog.
