A mini episode of sorts. Except for the the that extra long interview. But it's for the best really. Dave and Mike talk with the guys with Team2Bit and their game Fist Puncher. Tayor, Erron, and Dan cover the usual bases.
Dave takes the week off and Sidequesting's Editor in Chief, Dalibor Dimovski steps in to fill the void. He provides a wonderful excuse to talk about more mainstream news than usual, but all in an indie frame of mind.
Dave and Erron both return from a week off, each with a different tale to tell. Dave's might be a bit more exciting, but we don't hold it against Erron. Dave also talks up Little Racers Street.

In part 2 of the Armles Octocast's GOTY Special, we all go over our individual pics for 2011. We also have a some surprise lists involving: cats, tripping, and box art. Stay tuned!
Well it wouldn't be a calendar year without a Game of the Year discussion. With so many great XBLIGs, we had to bring in a large support team to handle this malarchy. That's why we've decided to break up this year's GOTY discussion into two parts. Today we have Brooks Bishop and Geoff Schultz of Two Fedoras, as well as Nate Graves of Gear-Fish to weigh in on what they thought some of the best titles of 2011 were.
Part 2 will feature the rest of the Armless Octopus staff duking it out for while titles they believe holds the top spot in a number of categories.
