Groove Coaster Wai Wai Party!!!! (not my exclamation marks) is an amazing rhythm game. I'd love something from this genre on the show. The Rhythm Heaven issue was a good one.
Uhh, yeah, I forgot about the Donkey Konga show.

Clippa, this obsession will last at least ten minutes. Have some respect.

An interesting and different show in theory, but it would mean several of us spending a lot of money on a lot cardboard and having the time, space and inclination to set it all up...

As it stands, I believe only Darren has any at all of his own.
All perfectly valid reasons, yeah. I'm surprised nobody else has any Labo, although I don't know why I'm surprised really. Just assumed it was more popular than it probably was.

I’ve added it to list of course, so I can gauge interest among the crew.

I've picked up a couple of sets for my sons 4th birthday in a couple of months

Yeah I got the boys a set for Christmas. Was only £20 or something. You can pick them up well cheap now.

My issue with Labo is the games, they’re just naff little fuss about things. The actual building is great fun.

The bazooka kit is supposed to be a fun game, which I’ve bought and not opened.

Labo is all about the making and not the actual game, in my opinion - which makes it a bit hard for a gaming podcast perhaps 😄.

I mean, we could talk about the cardboard and the building... if a bunch of us were keen to do it, it would make for a fun and unusual show...

Mafia 3. There's a lot to say about this game!

I know it must have been suggested already but I’m gonna say the Pokemon series.
On a more unusual note have you ever considered the Police Quest series?

I wonder whether the Taiko Drum Master/Drum 'n' Fun series is on there? I think a couple of the team mentioned it around the time of the Switch release, so I'd assumed it was.

I own the Switch game, but it's a difficult series to cover as most people don't own the games or have access to the coin-ops. Also, we just covered the Donkey Konga trilogy which is pretty much a Nintendo reskin of those.

Fair point about Donkey Konga! I think I've probably missed that particular boat, but I enjoyed the episode.

I might have a look for that on eBay but I just picked it up off the Japanese eShop because it's on sale. Been waiting a little while and they kindly emailed me to encourage me to spend more money. Having fun so far even just in handheld. The Splatoon theme is great.

I've got to say though it pales in comparison to Groove Coaster if you're ever tempted to give that a whirl. Absolutely class game.

Most games of that sort of profile get added as they come out, if not before.
