We recorded early this week, as Jared and I both have crazy stuff going on this weekend. Jared is going on some kind of crazy camping trip, and I'm going to Dark Lord Day at the Three Floyds Brewery. We both might not make it back from each of our adventures alive, in which case, 255 is a pretty great number to end on I guess. Anyway, we chat quite a bit about the various big announcements of the week like Nintendo bringing Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem to the App Store, along with talking about the following new iOS games: Loop Drive 2 [Free], Goo Saga [$4.99], War Tortoise [Free], and Outdodge [Free]. It's a good time, I promise.

Hey everyone, it's Friday and we're close to the end of the week of TouchArcade blasting stories out (unless anything cool happens over the weekend we need to cover), but the fact still remains: To survive, we very much need your support. The business of running a web site is tricky, and as we pointed out in our original cry for help, the way developers promote their iOS games has changed significantly with the rise of metrics-centric free to play and in-game directly tracked advertising. It's supremely difficult for us to compete with that, and as such, we've been appealing to our community directly. If you like hanging out on our forums, listening to our podcasts, or reading some of the best long-form content in mobile gaming, please consider supporting us on Patreon. We never hit our initial goal, but we've been slowly climbing none the less. We're hopeful we get there eventually!

It doesn't take a whole lot to keep us afloat, as we run super lean as is. As I've mentioned before on the podcast, even if our hardcore podcast followers each just contributed a buck a month we'd really never need to worry about this again. It'd be awesome to not need to worry about this kind of thing, and instead just continue focusing on combing the App Store for the best games iOS has to offer. To do that, we need your help. Think of it like subscribing to a magazine, except that magazine shovels rad content your direction 24/7 and is home to a great community of people to discuss every aspect of mobile gaming with.

Of course we appreciate the support of our current and former backers, but if you haven't chipped in yet... If you like what we do around here, please consider supporting us on Patreon.

It seems I've somehow caught whatever Jared had last week, through the internet, and spend this whole week randomly muting myself to cough but we push through anyway and talk about a whole heaping helping of brand new iOS games. Game chat includes Loud on Planet X [$3.99], Loop Mania [Free], Star Knight [$0.99], Pang Adventures [$3.99], Fold+ [$1.99], Yakin [$0.99] and last but not least, Choppa [Free]. We eventually hit up some news too before a surprise arrival from UPS takes a turn to Doomsday Preppers the TV show. It's insane!

patreon_logoEarlier this week we hosted a small get-together for all of our Patreon backers who might also be in San Francisco this week. Jared and I are rarely ever in the same place, so it was really cool to hang out and hang out with all the people backing us on Patreon.

It's worth saying again, you guys are all awesome and it's really cool to hang out with fans of the site. Oh, and a special shout out to Andy, a reader/backer of our site who was buying drinks left and right for everyone who showed up. Thanks for making the meetup so great.

LogoWe recorded a little early in the week, as today Jared is off at some professional golf thing following Justin Timberlake around. No. For real. Anyway, we kick things off talking about my new furnace, my trip to New York to visit the guys at Turbo and getting a behind the scenes peek at the upcoming Super Senso which we've also been streaming pretty regularly on Mobcrush. We then went through our massive backlog of listener emails, so if you've sent an email in and haven't heard it yet, chances are it's on this show. Games discussed include the onslaught of RPG's released this week such as Adventures of Mana [$13.99], Ys Chronicles II [$4.99], and Final Fantasy IX [$20.99]. From there I gush over the soft launched Saber's Edge for a while, then Jared and I discuss both _PRISM [$2.99] and Tomb of the Mask [Free] before we bring it on home.

811576_larger-2With me visiting Turbo this week for a look behind the scenes of Super Senso, we actually ended up recording the podcast in the limbo between when all the games start sneaking out in the morning and when they are released globally in the evening. So, with no new games to talk about yet we spent the first half of the podcast talking about my super secret trip to Blizzard as part of their process of figuring out what to do with card rotation in Hearthstone. On the other side, we talk about some of the cooler news stories of the week, and get back to the time honored tradition of speculating what Nintendo is going to do after all the Nintendo news this week.

LogoPicking up from where we left of discussing our Game of the Year post and the best games included in it, we start with The Executive and move through the remaining best games list. If you already have all these games, this will probably be a great refresher. If you don't have all these games, hopefully our discussion leads you to picking up some of the best stuff 2015 had to offer.

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, and love decoding messages written entirely in emoji. As always, you can listen to us with the links below...

January Patreon Update: Here's to 2016!

Free Buy Now

When we launched our Patreon half way through last year, things were pretty dicey, and the future of TouchArcade was sort of cloudy. Since then, readers and developers have supported us in a huge way and through adding things like TouchArcade Deals, we've been able to stabilize significantly. Things aren't so scary anymore. One slightly annoying thing is we were pretty close to hitting the $9,000 threshold on Patreon, then they changed how they display contributions. Currently, the total reflects how much we actually get every month after all the various processing fees, which I suppose is a more accurate way to do things, but it really shows just how far off our original $10,000 goal we still are.

We still need your support. If you like what we do here on TouchArcade, please consider heading to our Patreon page and even just contributing a dollar. Everything adds up, and is highly appreciated. A good way to think of it is like a magazine subscription, except instead of just getting a sorta out of date paper publication once a month, you're getting the bleeding edge of what's going on in the world of iOS gaming every day. As I mentioned in an editorial yesterday, the amount of content we've produced (totally for free to our readers) is ridiculous. We're on track sometime early this year to have reviewed the iOS equivalent to every PS2 game ever released.
