Thank you for your response and awesome.

I neglected to suggest the Sims series (take your pick out of which few, as I wouldn't expect you to cover every Game in the series. My introduction to the series began with the PS2 version that came before 'busting out,' if I remember correctly....so maybe cover that and one or two others?) Is this suggestion already on the list?

As I'm a new fan/community member, is there a way to see the list so that I don't repeat suggestions? :)

No, the long-list is for team eyes only.

It has around 1500 games on it so it's generally fairly safe to assume that any 'obvious' choice is probably on there.

Don't worry too much about making what might be duplicate suggestions though.

When is the list due to be finalised? Remember it being around the end of November last year and being ridiculously excited to find out what was on it.

The next 50 shows will be announced at some point in December.

Hope that I'm asking this in the right section, given that this thread relates to the podcast. I have listened to 10+ podcast episodes so far. From my understanding you very rarely have guests appear on the show (there is sometimes an American cast member...and on the God of War 3 podcast there was an individual named Darren Foreman - just finished listening to the God of War 3 podcast). So I'm curious, how does one earn a slot on the podcast panel?

Actually we have quite a lot of guests on - I haven't done the maths but I'd say it's around one in three shows maybe?

Guests are invited on basis of their knowledge, passion, reliability and - crucially - for their capability to express themselves verbally.

They usually have a solid track record of producing entertaining podcasts of their own, though not always.

Darren Forman was part of the original Cane and Rinse line-up but isn't around any more btw.

There's no hard and fast rule about how one gets to be a part of the core team. It tends to happen organically, although some have targeted the 'job' and have made their way in by proving their commitment to the project, as well as impressing me/us in some way (or multiple ways).

It's a pretty big commitment too, and unlike other podcasts there are a lot of stipulations about 'house style', editorial, tone and such that everyone tries to stick to, without compromising their own opinions or personalities.

One thing I especially like about C&R is that adherence to a set of rules. No matter who's presenting, it always feels of an ilk. Not the same of course, but there's a comforting familiarity, as with Radio 4 breakfast. You feel in safe hands.

The fact you guys have a 'house style' is one of the things that marks you out as a different kind of beast to something like Podquisition (as fun as that is) and so on.

The 'express themselves verbally' is also why I'm unlikely to ever go from sometimes guest on Sound of Play to the main cast. I'm a terrible rambler, mumbler and 'speaks too fast' type :) (I'm definitely better working from script which I've had time to write beforehand. My medium would more likely be short scripted videos like Extra Credits or Game Maker's Toolkit if I did decide I wanted to put my voice out there).

That's the intention (or one of them anyway) so that's gratifying to hear, thank you guys.

It's essential for me to know that I can leave particular shows in the hands of the rest of the team and know that all is in safe hands - plus as a bonus I get to listen to a Cane and Rinse podcast 'fresh'.

But... I was told he'd come back to aggressively educate everyone on a potential future Ninja Gaiden podcast... My hopes and dreams... Extinguished in an instant. :(

If we ever do decide to cover Ninja Gaiden I will endeavour to get Darren back in the studio.

Was Darren Forman the very strong accented Scottish gentleman from the earlier volumes ??

Indeed he was (and probably still is). Very knowledgeable on the topic of mechanical systems and action games.

That's right - he earned himself a place at the finals of the World Ninja Gaiden Championship back in 2004, or whenever it was.

He's a good guy and I still count him as an online pal but he didn't sufficiently commit to being part of Cane and Rinse to keep him on as part of the crew.

Based on the current podcast listing, I'm not sure whether your panel would be interested in playing a Hip Hop-focused Fighting game for C&R discussion, but the following is highly praised as one of the best PS2 fighting games, period.

- Def Jam: Fight For New York (Note: This is a story continuation of 'Def Jam: Vendetta,' incase this warrants an inclusion)


Also, you all did a podcast on the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, excluding Underground 1, Underground 2 and American Wasteland (similar to how you covered some Assassin's Creed games (briefly mentioning the remainder, then revisited those that were previously briefly mentioned in an additional podcast). With this being said, I'd additionally like to suggest:

- Tony Hawk's Underground 1 & 2
- Tony Hawk's American Wasteland


Finally, given that you've covered skating games, that are "limited" in terms of game scope, I feel that I can suggest:

- Fight Night Champion ('Champion Mode' aka story mode) - Has a well-crafted and interesting narrative that provides further purpose to gameplay etc
