621424_largerThis week was kind of a blur for me with so much cool stuff happening between Bioshock getting announced, desperately trying to beat the Military Quarter in Hearthstone, Dragon Quest IV launching, and so much more. We manage to distill all this amazement into one hour of podcast. Or, try to, anyway.

Tin Man Games are well-known for their many varied gamebooks, with a slew of licensed ones including Fighting Fantasy: House of Hell [$5.99] and Judge Dredd [$5.99], but they made their name with the original Gamebook Adventures series. And right now, all nine entries in the series are on sale from their regular $5.99 prices:

 

  • Gamebook Adventures 1: An Assassin in Orlandes [$5.99]
  • Gamebook Adventures 2: The Siege of the Necromancer [$5.99]
  • Gamebook Adventures 3: Slaves of Rema [$5.99]
  • Gamebook Adventures 4: Revenant Rising [$5.99]
  • Gamebook Adventures 5: Catacombs of the Undercity [$5.99]
  • Gamebook Adventures 6: The Wizard from Tarnath Tor [$5.99]
  • Gamebook Adventures 7: Temple of the Spider God [$5.99]
  • Gamebook Adventures 8: Curse of the Assassin [$5.99]
  • Gamebook Adventures 9: Sultans of Rema [$5.99]

Of course, if I had to suggest one game to pick up, it'd probably be the fifth one, if only because that's free and the rest are the exorbitant sum of $1.99. The series are meant to be individual self-contained adventures in the same universe (with some gamebooks being sequels to others), so just pick a few and jump in.

LogoHappy 4th of July, everyone! If you're in the USA, hopefully you're in the midst of an awesome barbecue before doing the whole fireworks thing. If you're outside the USA, well, we've got a podcast for y'all. It was sort of a crazy week for me personally with lots of flooding in my area, so I didn't play quite as many games as I usually do… But we still manage to talk about a lot of iOS stuff regardless.

So Very America

There's nothing that screams America!! quite like putting stuff on sale to celebrate July 4th, and this year is no different: app developers from all over the world are putting games on sale for America's birthday, a tradition like bald eagles, fireworks, and Tim Howard blocking everything sent his way – which this year includes paying more than a couple bucks for games. U-S-A! U-S-A! So, Americans, and the rest of the world, enjoy the cheap games this weekend. The first wave of sales is coming in, and here's some of the interesting stuff that's gone cheap so far:

Godfire [$2.99]
Botanicula [$4.99 (HD)]
Battle of the Bulge [$9.99]
Drive on Moscow: War in the Snow [$9.99]
Badland [$3.99]
Sine Mora [$5.99]
Majesty: The Northern Expansion [$2.99]
100 Rogues [$2.99]
The King of Fighters-i 2012 [$3.99]
Steampunk Tower [Free]
Sometimes You Die [$1.99]
Laser Hell [Free]
OTTTD [$2.99]
Nozoku Rush [$1.99]

..

The Infinity Blade series has just gotten a series of very appropriate price drops for the July 4th weekend.
The original Infinity Blade [$5.99] is $0.99. Infinity Blade II [$6.99] is $1.99. Infinity Blade 3 [$6.99] is $2.99. You know, like one dollar for IB1, two dollars for IB2, and so on. Very clever, Chair. This bold new strategy of sales-based-on-which-sequel-it-is might not save much money once Infinity Blade 75 comes out, but let's cross that bridge when we get to it, eh?

143449_largerWith us back from E3, the duo is now a trio again with the addition of Mike Meade who has three weeks worth of pent up wrestling chat to get out of his system. Oh, and new iOS games too. We debate how to pronounce VVVVVV, try to compare games to Flappy Bird, and get on a weird tangent about how expectations increase exponentially as production values of an iOS game increase. From there we move on to the hot news of the week, and then discuss our predictions for the Money In The Bank Pay Per View.

character-optimusprimeWe got some news straight out of the "Sure, why not" department of the TouchArcade command center this morning on Rovio's latest co-branding initiative. Following closely in the footsteps of both Angry Birds Star Wars [$0.99] and Angry Birds Star Wars II [Free] is Angry Birds Transformers.

Revealed through a vague teaser site, not a whole lot of details are available yet other than the game is "coming soon." Knowing what we know about Angry Birds games though, I'm guessing it'll be available on every platform imaginable.

Additionally, Angry Birds Star Wars launched at 99¢, so it's entirely possible that the Transformers-themed game sees a similar initial price point- like most Angry Birds games. It'll be interesting to see what kind of Transformers flavor Rovio manages to injects in to the Angry Birds formula, but, like all Angry Birds games, I'm sure it'll be fun.

LogoIt's been a pretty overwhelming week for us at WWDC, and with E3 next week, Jared and I are on the cusp of trying to have a relaxing weekend at his shack before heading down to LA. In this weird and sort of short podcast, we discuss the stuff we saw at WWDC and the future of iOS with all the cool new iOS 8 features on the horizon.

From there, we quickly blow through some of the cooler news this week, and break just in time to bro out and watch Smackdown. Next week's podcast might be a little weird too, but we'll be back to our normal format in a couple weeks when all these events are over.
