Either way, tons of games, and we talk about our favorites as well as recent news, drama, and Money in the Bank predictions for this weekend.

Don't forget to shoot us emails with any questions, feedback, or anything else relevant or irrelevant to podcast@toucharcade.com. We read 'em all, even if they don't make it into the podcast. As always, you can listen to us with the links below... And if you like what you hear, please subscribe and/or drop us a review in iTunes. Much appreciated!

First Strike: Final Hour, $1.99 - First Strike is nuclear war, but it's fun!

This real-time strategy game puts you in command of one of eleven atomic superpowers when global thermonuclear war breaks out. And as the death toll rises, there's always the question of who the real winner is while you blow our little blue planet to smithereens…

After earning a spot in the top 10 iPad strategy games worldwide and a nomination for the IMGA's "Best upcoming game" award, First Strike is now finally available for iPhone.

25% of all revenue goes towards charity projects, so get First Strike on iPhone right now!

    Awesome game, has a few bugs but the developers are highly committed so that'll be patched up.. As far as tower defense not many better in my opinion

  • JJE McManus

    FYI the podcast never showed up in the iOS podcast app. Possibly that app bug that's been going around.

    Listening to this while I work this monday morning. Just need to point out that you guys were very mistaken about World of Tanks. You CAN join another game, with a different tank, while you wait for the game you died in to end. Your destroyed tank stays tied up in the battle you died in until its over, then you receive whatever exp and money you earned and get the use of that tank again. So with the 5 garage slots you get by default, you can pretty much just keep playing even if you really really suck.
