Old User wondering what's new in the iPhone/iPod Touch World

Hi all at TouchArcade. I haven't been keeping track of gaming for the past hmmm 3-6 months. Just wondering what are the new killer apps, any deals that are on offer that I should really get, and any other concerning information regarding the world of Touch gaming... Thanks.

There's a reason Angry Birds is the top paid app. Get it, if you don't have it already.

Why dont you says what genres you enjoyed before, because the recommendations are all over the map and skewed towards recent stuff.

For example, like Dual Stick Shooters? There is probably still consensus that Meteor Blitz is the best.

Like RTS? There is general consensus that Land Sea Air is the best single player experience by a comfortable margin, although it lacks multiplayer.

In the pick up and play genre, Fruit Ninja and Tilt-to-live got and get lots of love from most TA'ers that like casual games.

And so on, and so forth
