‘Stardew Valley’ iOS vs Nintendo Switch – What Platform Should You Buy it On?

TouchArcade Rating: When Stardew Valley ($7.99) was announced for mobile, I was very excited.

I already compared Dead Cells on iOS and Nintendo Switch and decided

A New Setup – The TouchArcade Show #435

Ayyyyyyy we’re back again with another normal* episode of The TouchArcade Show. I’ve completed my move to Tennessee, and set up all my recording stuff in a slightly different way so if things sound a little different it’s either because I’m using a slightly different software package to do the podcast or because I just have way more carpet than I did before. Either way, we recap what’s been going on both with my move and with all the iOS gaming happenings (along with a few Switch stories). It’s a

TouchArcade Game of the Week: ‘Incredible Mandy’

TouchArcade Rating:The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn’t necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable “best" thing.

The internet changed gaming forever. How’s player support keeping up?

“Gaming has changed,” I thought to myself as I slowly maneuvered past the young cosplayers crowding the halls at Gamescom, the largest gaming conference in Europe for players and industry professionals.I thought back to my childhood, and the games I grew up with. Mario and Sonic were still present, I could still find Street Fighter and Fallout merchandise, and FIFA 20 was, somewhat expectedly, huge. But that was pretty much it — the gaming universe I used to know, tucked in between massive displays of games I’ve never heard of.

Insert coin: Level up your player support experience

If you’re wondering if I’m a gamer, I’m not.I don’t play video games every day, I don’t crowd my mobile phone with gaming apps, belong to any gaming community, I’m not even that good at them! However, from time to time, I do play a game or two.
