Apologies if I've requested this already. If not, would you ever consider the Goldeneye game on Wii?

I reckon it'd make an interesting show.

I loved it for how, when you tweaked them, it made motion controls for FPSs brilliant. It's also interesting from the viewpoint of how it handled remaking a game years later with new licensing restrictions.

Think it's a bit of an overlooked gem with a handful of great ideas and levels.

We talked about the other ‘GoldenEye’ games on our GoldenEye 007 podcast. I would say a full show is unlikely, though not inconceivable.

I must have missed that, apologies. I'll go check it out.

I'm heartily recommending Wandersong for a future volume. It'd make a great indie palate cleanser between meatier backlog blockbusters. It clocks in at under 4 hours, has a lovely soundtrack and a charming concept, and narratively toys with the concept of heroism and solving problems without violence. It's not perfect, but it is rather lovely.

By the time it comes around to a future volume I expect it will be cheap as chips and available on Xbox as well as the current platforms.

Unsurprisingly that is already on the list. Any show on it is a minimum of two years away however.

I detect some Leon-Leon nepotism going on here. Hecc.

As a ballpark guess, as a percentage, how many of the previous recommendations will end up being full episodes? I know I did a big ol' list when I first joined, and a handful of those would make really compelling podcasts. Just not sure how to temper my expectations for actually seeing them. :P

There are 2000 games on the list. We do 50 games a year.

And as the CaR gang have mentioned before,
if lots more people subscribed via Patreon, that would surely result in them being able to cover more games per year...

I should say that we’re no longer actively running the (unsuccessful yet very helpful in terms of boosting income) ‘2 shows per week’ Patreon campaign.

However we are still very much working towards the point where Jay and I can go ‘full time’, which will allow us to do more, and do it all much better.

We’ve still a long ways to go though, and all contributions are very much appreciated.

Plus you get a load of early and exclusive content for just $1 per month!

Just wondering on average how many games get added to the list per year?

If there's already 2000 on the list and as 50 will be struck from that list over the course of the year I wonder if the number will be any lower than 2000 by the December the 31st.

Well I guess on average it’s 330+ a year, but that has certainly decreased over time as most of the ‘classics’ and cult curios have already been added.

That said, there are interesting new games released almost on a daily basis, so that figure actually tracks.

You're going to need a succession plan. :)

I am assuming they are on the list but I would love for the drakengard series to be covered. Given the Nier spin offs have made the list why not go back to the origins? Go on you know you want to!

If you’re assuming they’re on the list why are you adding them to the games to go on the list thread..?

I think almost every game I would've suggested is on this year's list!

One big suggestion I'd offer is Anodyne - I feel it's very underrated, especially considering how it relates to that warped nostalgia present in something like Undertale and Petscop (it's not a game, but a C&R chat about Petscop would probably be really interesting).

As an old-school adventure games nerd, I'd love for a continuation of the Monkey Island 'casts (I know it's maligned by some fans of the original two, but Curse occupies a very special place in my heart - in fact, my ideal remasters of the original two would have had them in that dreamy-looking cartoon style of CoMI)

I always thought Curse Of Monkey Island was fantastic, I really enjoyed it. The less said about the fourth game the better, though!
