Ah, sweet. Never seen that list before, cheers.

What's the etiquette on starting threads for games that haven't been covered yet ??

If there's a game - or series of games - without a thread and you have something to say about it, then start a thread!

The Etrian Odyssey games are on the long list, but I'm not sure that we have any players among the team.

How about Uplink? The Introvision (?) hacking game from the early 00's.

I tried to be a good forum member and search the thread before posting this. 'Query for 'Shovel', 0 results found'

That said, how has there never been a Shovel Knight episode of CaR? I started a dozen games in 2016, and out of all of them Shovel Knight was hands down my favorite (comparing it to games like Hotline Miami, Limbo, XCOM EW-Plus and Axiom Verge).

Speaking of Axiom Verge..... can yall get on that too? Thanks, appreciate it lol

Hello!

Both Shovel Knight and Axiom Verge are on the long list.

The reason that there haven't been podcasts about those particular games (yet) is the same as with any number of other at least equally as amazing/famous/interesting games - because we have a shortlist of some 1500 titles and we can only do 50 shows per year!

Definitely both candidates for the future though, but not this year coming.

Just saw Axiom Verge for 50% off on the PSN store (the US one at least).

No doubt! That's why I love this podcast -- there's no focus on one particular genre or even platform resulting in a list 1,500 games long lol. That said, I'm really looking forward to the Mega Man 1&2, FF I & II, MKI, II & III and Witcher series episodes. Been waiting a long time for those series to make an appearance on CaR!

It may well be on there but the Amiga game Wings was one I absolutely adored and would play for hours. It never seemed to end, mind you!

All of the CinemaWare games are on the list, not a lot of enthusiasm among the team to actually play them however!

I am gutted to hear that.

I love this series and I've played all of them.

The only knock I can give the series is they are a *massive* time sink.

Did you ever play Persona Q? I'm a big Persona fan, so I picked up even though I had heard it was more of an EO game. Is it representative of the series?

Not yet. I actually received it for christmas this year, but I also got Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 and I've been playing that first.

I'm relatively close to being done, but these games are a massive time sink.

After finding some comprehensive and exceedingly agreeable episodes on some of my most highly-regarded flawed games, such as NieR and Dragon's Dogma, I had to suggest a couple titles that haven't seemed to have been mentioned:

Radiant Historia, probably my favorite original RPG on the DS. Relatively considerate of your time for an RPG at 30-40 hours and quite a good time-manipulation story with a sort of tactical combat system revolving around enemy placement management on a grid and using that to your advantage; laying traps and shoving monsters onto them or lining them up for a powerful strike.

Patapon or one of its two sequels, a rhythm-based game where you are the god of a sort of stylized tribal silhouette-people and enter sequences of instrumental tones to move your little army to defeat foes.


And as much as I desperately want to suggest something from the Monster Hunter series, I completely understand the inherent difficulty of properly covering those games in this format. As someone with far too much time over four iterations of the games, even with thousands of hours of experience you can still find plenty of nuance with different weapons or using armor skills to devise new strategies and even going back to the far less polished beginning of the series to see how things began: greatswords without a charge, dual blades as merely an upgrade path to individual sword-and-shields included in the G-Rank expansion, and bizarre system choices such as an item box which had only a single page and where each item slot only held as much as was allowed in your inventory as opposed to current stacks of 99 in an up-to-14-page box.

I'm going to guess it's probably already on the giant list, but Mafia 2?

The Mafia, Monster Hunter and Patapon games are all on the list. I shall add Radiant Historia.
