The upcoming digital version of Space Hulk sounds like a cool deal, even if you're not all that into the board game its based on. Creator Full Control is being faithful, but smart about the conversion. It'll straddle the line between port and revision; most of the rules, scenarios, and characters will make it over, while the duller stuff like all the bookkeeping won't. Also, it'll be a hair more action-oriented; you'll finally get to see a Terminator obliterate Genestealers from overwatch, as opposed to just imagining it. New effects will give it an actual mood, plus the game's multiplayer will give people a chance to play whenever, and not just when they feel like breaking out a physical board...

This week on the TouchArcade Show, we spend around 50 seconds talking about PS4 games before moving on to the latest, greatest, and best in iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. At the top, we dig into King Cashing 2, which is a great hybrid RPG. Later, we discuss some more stuff about Real Racing 3 before touching on traditional adventure game design and how Year Walk rolls. For the most part, we stay on subject this week, so that's something...

This week on The TouchArcade Show, we go deep on this week's biggest piece of news: the Sony PlayStation 4 reveal. Or, at least, we talk about its system specs, how it'll work with the iPhone and iPad, and how it stacks up with our expectations. If this isn't so interesting to you, don't worry, we do get around to iOS stuff. Year Walk leads off our games discussion, while titles like Backflip Madness and House of the Lost Mini bring up the rear. We also get to some industry news and answer your user comments and feedback...

On this week's episode of The TouchArcade Show, we dig into Real Racing 3. We dedicate the entire first half of our show to it, actually. We discuss what makes it good, what makes the model feel weird, and even go Next Level on it by talking about how some of the current App Store trends have informed its core design. If that wasn't enough, we even get into some of the controversy surrounding it because that seemed like a smart idea at the time. We'll see how that goes!..

This week on the TouchArcade Show, we talk about ... the next generation of consoles and PCs. It's been a slow week otherwise, so we figured it'd be cool to go ahead and address some of the rumors we've been seeing and flesh out our expectations of what's to come in 2013 and 2014. If that's not your cup of tea, don't worry, we do get around to some iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone games. SEGA's arcade shooter After Burner Climax leads off that segment. Beastie Bay, Krashlander, and Roar Rampage closes it out...

This week on the TouchArcade Show, we dedicate half the show to Paradox Con 2013. Both Eli and The Bearded Dude are there right now and have been seeing and eating all sorts of cool stuff, so we figured you'd want to know about it. Later in the show, we do get to the latest, greatest, and best in iPhone and iPad. Minecraft - Pocket Edition and Banana Kong leads off our games discussion, while travel greats like Super Hexagon and The Blockheads close it out. We also dive into some news, including the announcement of the Next Great Nimblebit gmae. Buckle up...

This week on the TouchArcade Show, we are joined by Special Guest Joseph Leray because Eli's European hotel Wi-Fi isn't, uh, so great. But don't worry: we manage to bring the pain without our favorite president-in-chief of a web site on the Internet. At the top, we discuss the THQ auction and what it means for the industry. Later, we dive into some of the latest and greatest iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch games including notables like Wave Trip, Traal, and Might & Magic. ..

On this week's episode of The TouchArcade Show, we battle through discussions on farts*, beards, and Dredd in order to bring you the latest, greatest, and best in iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch gaming. At the top of our games section, the guys roast the latest Final Fantasy game while I struggle with why it's not hitting me as terrible. We also discuss Temple Run 2 and its iterative design. Later, we dive back into The Blockheads, as well as Zenonia 5. Lots of game talk this week...

This week on the TouchArcade Show, we discover that I'm a total idiot. I had my microphone on the "conference" setting the entire time, meaning I was clipping basically the entire show -- or, at least, more than normal. To correct this, I had to fiddle with the gain and pitch every time I talked on the show. Please adjust your volume buttons accordingly. We tried to make it as listenable as possible, but do realize the error. Won't happen again!..

This week on the TouchArcade Show we sorta expected to talk about a lot of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch games. Instead, we ended up chatting about Chuck E. Cheese's, a handful of old PC releases, and Nexus 7 unboxing videos. There's a reason for this: the iTunes Connect freeze coupled with the extended holiday break combined together to form a perfect storm of nothingness on the App Store. There just plum isn't a ton of new stuff out there worth talking about at length. Anyway, if you're into off-topic podcasts, this is definitely another one of those. Buckle up...

On this week's episode of The TouchArcade Show, we kinda didn't talk about iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch games. Instead, we celebrate another year of our podcast in the best way possible: by talking about Warhammer, kittens, Magic: The Gathering, and Apple TV. This is probably our most off-topic podcast ever, so buckle up if you haven't hear us go off the rails before...

You saw our game of the year post, now listen to how we came up with the choice. This week's podcast is devoted exclusively to our game of the year debate. In great detail, we break down a bunch of games and stack them up against each other. Then, we somehow come to an agreement about which one is truly the best of the best...

On this week's episode of The TouchArcade Show, we battle through idle chat on TVs, the upcoming consoles, and Magic: The Gathering in order to bring you the best, hottest, and the latest in iPhone and iPad. At the top of our games section, we talk about how Middle Manager of Justice has changed since we last played the game. We also touch on Karateka, the latest Metal Slug release, and card game sensation Fluxx...

This week on a bonus episode of The TouchArcade Show, we sit down with Mark Jacobs. You might know the name. Jacobs was the VP and CEO of Mythic Entertainment, and saw over the release of two popular MMOs: Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. Jacobs is now trying his hand at mobile. Recently, he co-founded a brand new studio called City State Entertainment and released a new game, March on Oz [$3.99 (HD)]...
