This months retro gamer brings something to mind:

Rebelstar - Rebestar Raiders - Laser Squad - XCOM
Chaos - Lords of Chaos

How many of the Gollop-verse games are already on the long list? The first XCom would be probably the most interesting to cover (first game I ever bought a strategy guide for, fact fans)

Just about all of Gollop’s games are on the long-list. We touched upon the original UFO/X-COM in the show about the XCOM reboot.

Xenonauts is also on the long-list.

I can confirm that the entire Resident Evil series is on the list. I know Leon, Tony and Jay have been mulling over when to cover these, so your vote won't go unnoticed, ThirdDrawing!
Thanks for replying.
I don't like to request stuff I already figure was on the list, but it's nice to hear that a series playthrough has been considered.

Far better to let us know even if you suspect a game (or series) may be on the list.

Resident Evil is a bit of a weird one, since RE4 was covered in the very early days (Issue 2, I believe), but I know there's a desire for the series to be covered.

As always, no promises, but just wanted to let you know that it has been, and is being, discussed. :)

Hey guys! I would love to hear your thoughts on:

Super Metroid
Condemned: Criminial Origins
Prey (the first one)

Especially "Condemned" is a way too overlooked game. Please cover it!

Someone is enjoying my issue of Retro Gamer right now. Or worse still, thrown it in the bin!

Replaying it now and would love to hear you guys cover Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen, though I'm sure it's on the list.

I think - and I could be wrong - but it was before Dark Arisen came out though.

Had a listen to the Blast Corps podcast while at the airport today. Very good and quite funny too :)

A few game suggestions:

The Getaway (PS2)
Shadow of Memories (PS2)
Mindjack (PS3/360)

ISS/ Pro Evolution Soccer. Any chance at all of those getting covered at some point?

So obviously we've already looked back at some of the older footy franchises in one show, but tackling FIFA and/or ISS/Winning Eleven/PES in one show would be a massive task, while doing multiple shows about the series' would almost certainly lose us listeners! So we're still thinking about how to approach these but we have some massive football (and footy game) fans on the squad so we are keen.

We'll only schedule them when we've found a way to do the subject(s) justice though.

What about weirdo sports games that don't have much of an audience beyond their home country? Stuff like MLB: The Show or AFL Evolution. Might be a good way to approach a sports game mechanically because you don't have a real personal stake in how the game should play

Mutant League Football on the Sega Megadrive! (not a serious suggestion, just a reply to Whippledip's post, but a game I loved at the time nonetheless!)

International Handball! :D

I play MLB The Show and it'd be a big ask to do it justice from this side of the pond, given the technical (sports) knowledge that you'd need to assemble for the podcast.

I'd love to hear a sports-game-based show or two though.

I imagine it’d be hard to find the right guests to do sports games. Soccer is relatively easy, I know several regulars are fans of the sport (remember the football manager episode?).

It’d be harder for, say, ice hockey. When you’re doing a sports game you really do need people that are deep into that sport for the proper depth. I could tell you what I think of EA’s NHL games as games, but not anything about how well they actually translate the NHL itself.
