    Caving on the M1 Mac – The TouchArcade Show #472

    Caving on the M1 Mac – The TouchArcade Show #472

    We’re back after taking last week off for Thanksgiving! This week’s show delves deep into Jared’s rampant consumerism as I talk about all the dumb junk I’ve bought recently. Yes, this includes finally caving in and buying an M1 MacBook Air. Also a SodaStream. We then talk about the hot topics in mobile gaming for the past two weeks, including Apple’s own slightly odd picks for the Best Games of 2020.

    A Trifecta of New Devices – The TouchArcade Show #470

    In this week’s episode of The TouchArcade Show we have A TON to talk about, which is weird because despite that this show ended up shorter than usual. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Eli talks about his trifecta of new devices: the Nintendo Game & Watch (affiliate linked below, buy 30 of them!), the Xbox Series X, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. We then talk about Apple’s event this week where they unveiled new Macs featuring their custom Apple silicon, the already bananas value of Game Pass that shot up a ton with the addition of EA Play this week, and of course the big mobile gaming stories of the week.

    The Official Hades Fan Club – The TouchArcade Show #469

    We kick off this week’s episode talking about the US election which has been going on for approximately 47 years now. Were you aware that there was an election this week? Apparently it was a big deal or something. We then launch into all sorts of mobile gaming news, like the long-awaited iOS release of HopFrog’s Forager or the possibility of Fortnite making its way back to iOS via Nvidia’s GeForce Now streaming service. We also pause for a moment to reflect on our love for Supergiant’s Hades and its ingenious God Mode option.

    Making Slinky Noises with Our Mouths – The TouchArcade Show #468

    Making Slinky Noises with Our Mouths – The TouchArcade Show #468

    In this week’s show Eli recounts his finding of the slinky and then losing it again, and then contemplates the merits of just buying a new one (or a three pack). I then dive into why I’m feeling like garbage which is directly related to my toddler son feeling like garbage last week, which resulted in a Covid scare over the weekend. Not fun. But everything is ok! We then manage to wrangle ourselves back on track to discuss mobile gaming news including Eli’s impressions of the League of Legends Wild Rift beta test and how to get in on it even if you’re not in one of the soft launch territories.

    In this week’s episode we talk about the brand spanking new iPhone 12 I just received in the mail! And… can’t use because it gets stuck in activation. Apple: It just works! Until it doesn’t! Then you’re screwed! We also talk about the latest Apple drama surrounding them finding a way to pull the Stadium app, which allowed iOS users to access and play Google Stadia on their devices, from the App Store.

Interesting, Informative, and Awesome

The TA guys know iDevice gaming and know how to make a consistently interesting and informative podcast. I've been listening for almost a decade, and continue to enjoy it every week. I also support the Patreon.

I wanted to get this updated review posted, because the first reviews should show you all how awesome your show is :-)

Gatlan ,

My favorite podcast!

Eli and Jared rock- real guys, real reviews and really good gamers that care about me not wasting time on BS- garage apps. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to this site and your podcast. Rick from Oregon.
