It is on the list. It was given away when Bowie died too.

There is not a lot of love for Quantic Dream among the team though as you may have gathered from our previous podcasts!

I gathered that although it’s a different beast entirely. It’s actually got gameplay for a start! Part adventure game, part FPS/beat em up and completely bonkers!

It’s very ambitious and I think would make a great podcast.

Curse of the Monkey Island just popped up on Steam/GOG. So maybe its a good time to revisit thought of doing Monkey Island Trilogy ? :) I know that first two are usually considered "must-play" but i think that addition of great voice actors in Curse makes it great part of the series.

Correction: a very entertaining lack of love for Quantic Dream! :D

The rest of the Monkey Island games are all still on the list.

If people are throwing point and click games on the list, I'd like to add

Syberia 1 and 2

The Raven

I believe those are all on the list but I’ll check.

Edit: They weren't, but they are now.

I’m sure this has been requested but Dino crisis would be a great show off the back of the resident evil shows

I've always wondered why they didn't continue that series, OR make another game in another setting following the exact RE template in the way Dino Crisis did.

The third game was pretty bad and didn’t really sell that well. Capcom aren’t as cash rich a company as many of their rivals either, they’re pretty much the only major Japanese publisher that hasn’t merged with another publisher or a larger parent company (Namco with Bandai, Square with Enix, Koei with Tecmo etc...)

Ah, well I never even knew there was a third game, which shows how well it obviously did!!

There was also a mobile game and a ‘Gun Survivor’ spinoff.

I’m sure they are on the list but I’d love to hear some more Amiga games get the cane and rinse treatment.

Cannon fodder, Zool, alien breed, turrican, lemmings, the dizzy series would be great and popular enough to be in with a chance.

There a few more obscure titles I loved but I doubt anyone would be interested in playing them for the show or tuning in to hear them discussed.

Cannon Fodder is one of the few games from back then that I would just so love an update for. Not even an update really, a straight up port of the Amiga or Megadrive version in HD would suit me just fine. It baffles me they've never gone back to that series.

It’s a fine game. I remember the graveyard of all my fallen soldiers was huge and the theme tune still jumps into my head every now and then!

I suspect the problem of a remake or reissue would be one of ‘who owns it’.

I'm sure these will be on the list but I'd love a C&R take on Dodonpachi or Mushihimesama. This stuff has taken over my life.

We definitely don’t pick our games on popularity or potential listeners!

Most of those games are on the list, a couple aren’t but I will add them.

One of the main issues with the likes of Lemmings and Cannon Fodder is the incredible difficulty of actually completing those games.

Honestly I think Zool is a really, really long shot though.
