This show starts quick and keeps rocking the whole way to the finish line. We kick things off with a listener email about the new Sega Forever games, and breaking down the whole timeline of hype teasing to release, along with what we think of the games sinks up the first half of the show. Other than that, we talk about two other games, the classic re-released puzzler Cash Cow: Anniversary Edition [$2.99] and Fidget Spinner: Journey of Secrets [Free] which we're pretty sure there's something more to... Additionally, as usual, we chat about some of the big news stories then call it a day!

We've got a lot to talk about this week, and aside from a few 90's music jokes for episode #311, we hop right in to talking about the latest and greatest in the world of iOS gaming. Kicking things off with discussing the new iPad Pro and the odd situation Apple has themselves in with how difficult it is to continue to perfect their devices, we move on to the few E3 announcements that pertain to mobile. From there, we discuss a few of the huge releases of the week including Supercell's soft launched Brawl Stars, Noodlecake's Flipping Legend [Free], and the Metroidvania forma.8 [$3.99] which has been years in the making.

We're back from WWDC and ... I'm super sick! The WWDC plague this year is extra strong, but after packing my body with cold medication we were ready to rock. The show starts off with answering a couple emails and then we hop right into talking about a ton of the new things announced during the keynote. iOS 11, ARKit, and more are among the thingd we discuss. We chat a bit about Monument Valley 2 [$4.99], but WWDC is definitely the star of the show!

Ahhh the Friday before WWDC! With preparations to be made to head to San Jose on Sunday, this podcast is a few minute short but we still hit all the big news stories of the week along with a few tiny predictions for WWDC.

Even More Rants - The TouchArcade Show #308

Is there anything better than a Friday before a holiday weekend? I'm not sure there is! We kick things off talking a bit more about the roundups I've been doing over on MacRumors every Friday and what a bummer it is that the common perception of so many people is that there aren't any good mobile games- A statement which is obviously untrue. After a little rant session, we move on to four great games which were released this week: Prison Architect [Free (HD)], Skullgirls [Free], Zombie Gunship Survival [Free], and Rogue Wizards [Free].

Another Friday, and another episode of the podcast! Weeks like this are easy to record as there's so many rockin' games to talk about that we actually ended up running a little longer than usual. After some followup from last week's beer chat, we talk about all the awesome iOS games we played and then shifted gears to speculating about Zelda. The games we talk about this week are: Arkanoid vs Space Invaders [$3.99], Old Man's Journey [$4.99], No Stick Shooter [$1.99], Guns of Boom [Free], Beholder [$4.99], Lode Runner 1 [Free], and Timber Tennis [Free]. Sorry about the Windows notification noises, I didn't realize my recording software was also picking those up! It'll be fixed for next week I promise.

We've also got an Amazon referral link set up on http://toucharcade.com/amazon, and would really appreciate it if you do your shopping on Amazon through that to support the site! It costs you nothing! (Well, other than what you'd buy on Amazon anyway.) From there, we get into a pretty awesome podcast featuring the following games: Robot Unicorn Attack 3 [Free], Match Land [Free], Family Guy: Another Freakin Mobile Game [Free], Penarium [$1.99], Super Senso [Free], and Suck It Up [Free].

Double apologies for TouchArcade Patreon backers this week, as a SNAFU with my dumb computer instantly rebooting when I told it not to install Windows Updates (Thanks, Windows 11) resulted in a corrupted MP4 file for the first 3/4 or so of our video podcast. If you're a bad enough dude to attempt to recover the file, you can download it from my Dropbox here and then hit me up on Twitter. You will become the podcast king if you can save the video podcast kingdom. I can provide more details, but tl;dr basically amounts to the MP4 recording got cut off and so it didn't write the moov atom at the end, resulting in 1.4GB unplayable file. Fun stuff. Anyway, if you don't care about the video side of things, this is a pretty great episode this week. We kick things off talking about DotEmu's fabulous Wonder Boy port on the Nintendo Switch (which we really hope comes to mobile, like most/all other DotEmu stuff), then we kick into discussing some games. Those games include: Trailer Park Boys: Greasy Money [Free], Office Space: Idle Profits [Free], CATS: Crash Arena Turbo [Free], Nonstop Chuck Norris [Free], Vignettes [$2.99], Get Me Outta Here [Free] and Invert [$2.99]. It's a good time, I swear.

Jared is dog sitting this week, so apologies in advance to random barking as the unruly beast he's watching is... Randomly noisy. It's a real cool show though regardless, which we kick off with two awesome emails. One from the original creator of Snake and another from a listener asking us about the impending 32-bit app-pocalypse. From there we switch gears to talking about (a ton) of new games including Mystical Runes [Free], Tape it Up [Free], Fairyland Story [Free], Hempire [Free], Mallow Drops [$2.99], Full of Stars [Free], Bazoo Mobile Esport [Free], Super Plexis [Free], Footy Golf [Free], Bacon Escape [Free], and Star Cat Adventure [Free] which I think is a record for one podcast, maybe.

Ahhhh sorry for missing last week's episode of the podcast, but we're back and better than ever with our 300th episode. That's nearly six years of weekly podcastin', which is pretty crazy to think about.

Games played on this episode include Death Road to Canada [$8.99], Gangstar New Orleans [Free], Meganoid 2017 [$2.99], Climb! [$1.99], Bethesda Pinball [Free], and Ballz [Free].

As we mentioned a few weeks ago, March has been filled with crazy travel for me. Originally we planned to record this week's podcast on the one (1) day I was going to be home before immediately flying out again to attend the Hearthstone Championship Tour. It certainly isn't the first time I've vastly overestimated the amount of time I had to do something, and it won't be the last. However, given the excitement surrounding the release of Death Road to Canada [$8.99], I've actually got the perfect rewind episode to throw in the feed from the first time Rocketcat Games and Madgarden fist bumped and made a game together. We loved the game when it was released, and on this old episode of the podcast we chat with Kepa and Paul about what went into making it and their decisions behind how many of the mechanics work. It's actually fascinating to go back and listen to now, as it seems the same vibe has persisted in Death Road.

We'll be back with a normal podcast episode (with a video version for Patreon backers) next week. I've got some other cool video stuff I've got planned for the future too, I just ... need to be more, for more than a day.

With Eli on vacation this week, Jared recruits the most villainous human being on the planet, Carter Dotson, to co-host this week's show. We talk at length about Apple's recent "Celebration of Indies" promotion as well as their new initiative to give indies more visibility by giving them their very own separate storefront in the App Store. Then of course we dive into some of the new games from this week, which was one of the most loaded weeks in recent memory. Seriously, my wallet is crying. Finally, we dip into some of the more interesting news stories of the week, including the all-important registering of a trademark for "Swifties" by Taylor Swift. We bring the hard-hitting news stories, that's for sure.

We barely dipped our toes into first impressions territory of the Switch on the previous episode, but this episode, we're all about it. We fill up the first 20 minutes or so of the show talking about the console, Zelda, and the way it's integrating into our lives without really replacing our mobile devices at all. From there, we shift gears to talking about some new games released this week, including Mushroom 11 [$4.99], Kingdom: New Lands [$2.99], Yo! Let's UP [Free], Hardway [Free], Free Rider HD [Free], and 1942 Mobile [$1.99]. We finish stuff off with some quick news, and call it a podcast!

As you could probably tell by the avalanche of GDC coverage that persisted through the weekend and most of the day today, GDC was busy. At some point at around 10:00 PM Pacific on Friday we were like, "Man we can't record a podcast tonight, it's just going to be us talking about how tired we are." We regrouped, and recorded a pretty rad show today which covers a random assortment of things we saw at GDC and our first impressions of the Nintendo Switch.

We recorded a little early this week, but we still threw down a hell of a show.

Unfortunately, the fears I mentioned in last week's podcast episode came true and I'm currently stuck using the world's worst hotel WiFi (which really describes basically all hotel WiFi). I wasn't even able to place a simple Skype call yesterday, so there's not a whole lot of point in trying to record an hour long podcast today... But, thankfully, we've got tons of back catalog stuff to pull out which I'd bet not many people have heard before. (And if you have, you're a serious hardcore fan of TouchArcade and we really appreciate you sticking around for so long.

Anyway, this week's episode is actually from the third episode of our podcast in 2009 where we had the developers of Pocket God [$0.99] on the show. Pocket God was somewhat of a TouchArcade community sensation, with a following that was sort of incredible at the time. What also makes this episode fascinating to listen to is it was recorded right when there were initial rumblings of free to play and in-app purchases potentially coming to the App Store. Listening to this episode, we don't even really know what to call this style of game and continually refer to in-game purchases as "DLC" as that was the only reasonable comparison at the time.

We'll get back to our regular podcasts next week, and with GDC and all sorts of other stuff coming up I'm hoping to work towards having a few non-time sensitive episodes we can have in queue so we can have normal, new, and unreleased podcasts ready to go in times like this when WiFi doesn't cooperate. But, hey, this will be a great blast from the past for most people I think.
