The TouchArcade Show – 06 – Sending Smoke Signals to Kairosoft

This week on TAS, we discuss more games than news due to the startling lull in App Store controversies, craziness, or compelling offerings. Pocket Academy takes the first spot, as we go deep on what makes it so good. Then, we follow with a light Puzzle Agent 2 discussion, followed by Street Fighter 4: Volt, 8-Bit Rally, and Amazing Breaker.

Somehow, we get off the rails hard enough to have a legitimate discussion about the Xbox LIVE beta program and classic online PC gaming. Also, Jared’s puffy and beautiful beard gets a notable mention among other tangential riffs.

As always, you can check us out via the download link just below or on the iTunes music store for music and other things, as well as the Zune Marketplace. If you’d be so kind, we would really like to read more of your questions or comments on air, so throw us e-mails at our inbox: [email protected]. You can also hit us up on Facebook and the Twitter, though your longer-form thoughts are always appreciated.
