316645_largerThis week's episode of the podcast was dominated by game discussion of two awesome titles that were released this week. We get down and dirty with Adventures of Pip [$4.99] which seems like a really clever platformer that manages to blend pixel art both as an art style and as a game premise. Unfortunately, the virtual controls sort of suck. On the other hand, we're all excited for The Executive [$2.99]. It's a deceptively deep fighting game even though the controls seem so simple, oh, and even just calling it a fighting game is weird as there's so much more you do in it. We hit on the weekly Nintendo drama, and there's even some exciting news about the future of TouchArcade hidden in the podcast that you'll have to listen to to find out- Otherwise it'll all be revealed next week when we make our official announcement.

131498_largerFinally back to regular podcast episodes, it feels like it's been too long. We kick this week off with a bang, talking about our Patreon a bit before moving on to discussing what an absolute complete and utter sh*t show Sonic Runners [Free] is. Seriously, it's almost like the game is some kind of modern high-level satire on free to play. From there we move on to quickly chatting about games like Arrow [Free] and Piloteer [$2.99]. From there, we move on to discussing the news drama of the week split between what Nintendo is up to and the explosion caused by Apple removing the Confederate flag from the App Store.

LogoE3 is absolutely exhausting, and our overall exhaustion level is well represented in this week's podcast, which was recorded immediately after the show floor closed yesterday. We chat about the coolest things we saw in mobile including accessories and devices, weird things at E3, and our experience with various VR demos. We'll be back to normal episodes next week, so please stick with us through another episode with weirdo audio quality.

Among our first appointments of the day was sitting down to chat with Bethesda VP Pete Hines. Unsurprisingly, he didn't have anything new to talk about, as they put all their cards on the table during the E3 event... But, it's always nice to get some more details on where Bethesda is headed, what they're thinking with their mobile strategy and more. Instead of doing an article with a bunch of quotes pulled out and such, I figured it'd be cooler to just post ten minutes of raw audio of us chatting at E3...

LogoWe just made it to Jared's place in Sacramento and decided to throw down a podcast about our experiences this week. WWDC is a strange event, because you really never know who is going to be there- Particularly as the lottery for tickets gets more and more competitive. So, most of the stuff we saw is secret, at least for now. As cloning becomes a bigger and bigger deal on iOS, developers are increasingly hesitant to let anyone publicly see their projects until it's too late for anyone to beat them to market with a clone. Weird, right?

Either way, E3 is next week, and that event will be overloaded with games, so stay tuned for that insanity.

LogoWell, this is kind of crazy. I rarely look at our podcast download stats because... Well, it's just not something I think about a lot. The podcast is just sort of something fun we do at the end of the week when I get a chance to BS with Jared and Mike. I think that reflects on the podcast itself, in that it's just a fun thing we do without worrying about too much. Well, it's been growing steadily over the years and we're at the point now where we're peaking around 63,000 downloads a week. That's insane! If you would've told me back on episode #1 that we'd even have more than a few hundred people listening, I would've been skeptical. But, hey, thanks a ton to all of our supporters and listeners. It's really cool so many people are voting with their downloads.

Oh, and we threw down a great podcast this week too, focusing a bit on Mike's new game Move the Walls [Free], the shockingly elaborate Blades of Brim [Free], and potentially the greatest game in human history You Must Build a Boat [$2.99]. Also of course is random talk of the news of the week, our WWDC and E3 plans, and just a hint of wrestling chat near the end.

Hey there, everyone! Another month has flown by, and that means it's time for the latest episode of the RPG Reload Podcast. This month, we decided to talk about Final Fantasy 4 [$15.99] because it's a very special game to both Eric and me. Having a third person join us went so well last time, we decided to do it again this month. None other than TouchArcade's own Shining Sultan of Salt, Andrew Fretz, joins us this month via remote satellite feed from B25 of TouchArcade Towers. As usual, we talk about recent RPG releases, what we've been playing, and the last month's RPG news before we go into the main topic. I should mention that we recorded this about a week ago, so you won't find any discussion of Chaos Rings 3 [$19.99] in this episode, but you can be sure we'll talk about it next time...

LogoFresh off the Memorial Day holiday, this week has been flooded with insanely awesome game releases. We touch on a bunch of them, but Jared and I definitely will need to spend this weekend playing catch up. From there we discuss some of the news of the week, including how neat it is that we live in a world where you can turn your phone into a VR headset by folding up a fancy piece of cardboard. THE FUTURE, I tell ya'.

122371_largerThis week's episode of The TouchArcade Show is loaded with discussions of the various games of the week and Mike's odd depth of knowledge when it comes to anything to do with Growing Pains. It's really creepy, in a way that's actually creepy and not just in one of those "Oh I'm just joking around" kind of ways. It's a good time, I promise, you might even learn something... About Growing Pains.

Brickies, Free - The team at Noodlecake isn’t a fan of over the top sales pitches. So they gave us an ad that was simple and to the point.

Brickies is a new take on the classic breakout game genre. It has everything you know and love from brick breakers and a few surprises you won’t see coming. It has lots of levels, great visuals, an endless high score mode, and stackable power ups that result in big time destruction.

If you are a fan of breakout games, or are looking try one out for the first time, Brickies is free on the App Store so you might as well check it out. You’ve got nothing to lose. Except sleep if you stay up all night playing it.

LogoNow that both Jared and I have our Apple Watches, we start the show by talking a bit about some of the things covered in my review. We're both hopeful for the future, and hoping for Mike to even get an iOS update that would allow him to connect an Apple watch were he to buy one. From there, we move on to some brief game discussion before diving into the drama of the week... Which, this week, seems to be everyone and their brother announcing that they're diving head-first in to mobile from AAA.

LogoRecording early in the day means we don't get Mike to eat cereal on the podcast, but that's alright as we talk about iOS boxing games in the wake of the Mayweather and Pacquio fight, as part of a somehow relevant conversation with a listener proposing a TouchArcade show drinking game. This is the Power Hour thing we talked about, as we wrestle through attempting to do math. The only game we really get into is the fantastic Test Chamber which snuck up out of nowhere. Finally, we bring it back home with Jared's wacky Apple Watch adventure, discussion of Apple Watch games, and of course... The Nintendo news.

Hello, friends! It's time once again for a new episode of the RPG Reload Podcast. It's a special one, because this time around Eric Ford and I have a guest joining us for the first time. The main topic this time around is King Of Dragon Pass [$9.99], and neither Eric nor I have a particularly long history with the game. I've played it a few times since its release, and Eric played it for the first time leading up to this podcast. With that in mind, we decided to tap one of our expert readers, a fine fellow by the name of Zack Kline, to join our discussion. He offers a unique perspective on the game, and not just because he's a big fan of it. Zack is a blind gamer with a keen interest in hardcore games like RPGs. He was instrumental in King Of Dragon Pass adding full voice-over support, making it one of a small selection of RPG titles that are accessible to the visually impaired. It was a pleasure to have Zack join us, and we'd like to have him on again if the opportunity arises...

LogoThis is a pretty awesome podcast episode, we start with troubleshooting Jared's weird inability to figure out Reddit, move on to shout outs, and then discuss some great games of the week including The Line Zen [Free], the subsequent Ketchapp drama. We also chat about Sheep Frenzy! [Free], Bears vs. Art [Free], Lonk's Awakening [Free], and Skatelander [Free]. There's a lot of other random game discussion in there, but those are the main ones. About an hour in we switch gears to WWE chat, so stick with us for that if you're into wrestling.

077016_largerCongratulations lucky recipients of the Apple Watch and... Well, people like us who are still wondering when the hell ours are going to ship. I had hoped this episode would be all about our first impressions of the Apple Watch, but, hey, when life gives you lemons... Talk about how awesome Does Not Commute [Free] and the other great games of the week are. We've got a full news rundown as well, along with rumors, speculation, and little WWE chat at the end.

One last thing of housekeeping here, the podcast is now available on Stitcher.

If nothing else, it's just one more way to listen to our show. Also, since we're new on Stitcher, it'd be really rad if anyone who uses Stitcher would leave us reviews over there.

LogoSorry we're late this week (or late from last week, I guess) on posting our podcast, I was attending Pocket Gamer Connects Bangalore and if you think hotel WiFi is bad in the USA... Well, you ain't seen nothin' yet. But, hey, whatever, even though we're a couple days late we still cut a great podcast complete with tons of India talk, Apple Watch hype, Hearthstone stuff...

If you listened to our show last week, you know that it's been a pretty hectic couple of weeks for Eli and myself and it's been difficult to find the time to sit down and hammer out our podcast. A shame, especially since we should be celebrating our 200th episode! This week, Eli is in India with an internet connection that's… well let's just say it's not reliable. Not even close to reliable enough to get through even a half hour edition of our show. So it's with a heavy heart that I announce there's no podcast today, but worry not: Eli and I will reconvene on Monday when he's back in the States and record our voices talking to each other for you. Hey, we might even invite Mike Meade on if he's awake!..

exec_icon_roundedRecorded live in Las Vegas, episode #200 tells the tale of 100oz daiquiris, walking all over the place, secret video games, and so much more. We also touch on Jared's wicked obsession with Mortal Kombat X, our try-on experience with the Apple Watch, and the drama of the week which includes both Hearthstone and Angry Birds Go. Audio quality is a little weird as we just recorded with my MacBook Air's mic, so we just did a short episode. We'll be back next week with a semi-normal episode of The TouchArcade Show, maybe.

It's a martial arts fighting game with a deep upgrade system and timing-based platforming. After three years in development, it's coming this spring from Pizza Vs. Skeletons creator, Riverman Media.

It's that time again, my friends. The most excellent Eric Ford and I got together to produce another episode of the RPG Reload Podcast. There are lots of exciting revelations this episode, the first being that we have our own theme song! It turns out at least one of our fine listeners is also a fine musician, and they have graciously provided us with an awesome arrangement of one of their songs. It sounds a bit like retro RPG battle music, and both Eric and I agree that it's perfect for the type of show we're doing. A big, big thank you goes out to Sweet Diss of Sweet Diss And The Comebacks for helping us out with a special TouchArcade Remix of their song Color Of Love from the album Emerald City Love Song. That album is available on iTunes if you want to show some appreciation...

001538_largerAnother huge week of iOS releases and significantly increased content output thanks to our awesome new writers has had Jared and I pretty busy on all the not-so-fun back-end stuff that goes in to managing TouchArcade... But we still manage to get together with radical Radical developer Mike Meade to talk about the awesome stuff that's been going on. With Apple Watch preorders next week, we stress out about which ones we're getting, talk about some games, then get on to talk about the Wrestlemania results.

LogoUnfortunately, radical Radical billionaire Mike Meade has fired Brad Nicholson as his body surrogate, so we're back to normal episodes of the podcast- As if that is ever possible. This week has been pretty crazy from an overall story output perspective, so we're kind of scatterbrained and recording late in the day. But, I'd argue those circumstances make for the best podcasts. Also, we get Mike's predictions for Wrestlemania, as we all agree Brock Lesnar just has to retain the title- Especially with a phatty-boom-batty three year contract under his belt.
