The Playdate Episode – The TouchArcade Show #527

TouchArcade Rating:

It’s another video-less episode of The TouchArcade Show as we continue to try and figure out our technical issues. However, this is a super-sized dose of audio podcast goodness as we start things off reading a few reader emails that spark some interesting discussion, and then we highlight our own Shaun Musgrave’s excellent list of must-have 3DS titles to pick up from the eShop before it shuts down next spring. Then the entire back half of the episode is entirely dedicated to talking all about the Playdate, which officially launched this week. You can find a link to Shaun’s list and my full review of the Playdate hardware in the Show Notes below.

Don’t forget to shoot us emails with any questions, feedback, or anything else relevant or irrelevant to [email protected]. We read ’em all, and love decoding messages written entirely in emoji. As always, you can listen to us with the links below… And if you like what you hear, please subscribe and/or drop us a review in iTunes. Much appreciated!

As a companion to this audio podcast, we also do a video version of the same show that is exclusive to Patreon which allows you to see us playing the games we’re talking about.
