Pocketoid 46 - 2013 Game of the Year Awards!

In this episode it's Pocketoid's 2013 Game of the Year Awards! Here at Pocketoid we only choose portable games so that means Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita, iOS, and Android! What an amazing year for portable games! Like, for real. Choosing our winners was so difficult and we only picked from games we actually played this year. There were plenty of games that didn't make it into the running simply because we didn't have time to check them out in 2013! It's a good problem to have.

Our choices may or may not reflect your own, but either way these are OUR lists so no complaining! Some of the best portable games of all time came out this year and it was very difficult choosing between them. Still, we think we did a pretty good job. Also, audio got out of sync a very tiny bit, sorry about that.

What were your favorite games of 2013!? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter!

Pocketoid Episodes 43&44 Are Up! Zelda, Tearaway, Jett Rocket, Lone Survivor

Hey! We put two episodes up and one of them was actually on time! Hopefully that becomes a trend. We also should have the iTunes situation ironed out soon, I know we've said that before but we're putting it back to the way it used to be for now so that will fix it for sure. 

Anyways, in episode 43 we talk about the totally not creepy game, Senran Kagura Burst and Jett Rocket II. That episode also featured our good friend Browner2008/Apoli90. Then there was the usual news and other nerdy junk that we always talk about. 

Episode 44 featured reviews for Tearaway, Ohno Odyssey, Lone Survivor: Director's Cut, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds! Holy wow this episode had so much games it was insane! This was also the episode that we announced that both of your hosts now own PS Vitas so you can expect even more Vita coverage and reviews in the future. 

We had so much fun getting these episodes together for you guys so we really hope you guys enjoy it as well. Keep an eye out here for the next episode where we will be reviewing Stick It To The Man as well as possibly having a giveaway.

Pocketoid Episode 40 Records Today! PAX! Spelunky! Pokemon!

Hey boys and girls! Having a good Sunday so far? I hope so! If not maybe the fact that the 40th episode of Pocketoid is recording today can help!!

As some of you may know I (Addison/Crackity Jones) was at PAX this time last week, so on todays episode I will be talking about that a lot. Also on the menu is Spelunky, Pokemon news, other handheld news, and whatever dumb nerd stuff Jordan/Jackal27 has to talk about. 

A few updates on the show itself that I'd like to share with you: 1. We will have a full fledged website soonish! and 2. I have heard that iTunes hates us and the show is all kinds of messed up on there. I will be contacting them today to start working that out. Sorry if this has been an annoyance for you. 

As always we would love any questions you may have, so please feel free to drop them below or tweet them to us!   read
