Aw man, that would be a real shame.

What if you dropped the "released" part of the thread?
You're pretty dang awesome at finding the upcoming releases, is that part is less time consuming?

Yeah, I agree with E7...you're awesome at this. What if you just posted upcoming releases without following them up after release, or not necessarily even posting the releases' respected threads. Just a list of what's coming out and when. If anything I'm sure a bunch of mods (myself included) would love to help out and add the threads, TA Plays videos, etc. No promises of course, but yeah...if you're still up to it, it doesn't necessarily have to be a one man job.

I would simply love a list with confirmed games which are coming out. No need to update lists, just post when you have news of a game coming out on a certain day.

The upcoming thread ages ago used to do the same thing. Dont get me wrong this ones more precise but i'm not surprised it takes up too much of your time.

A thread where people simply post what games are confirmed to come out would be good, no need to even update 'post 1', just go back a few pages and see what games people have said are coming out.

Agreed with psj. I don't understand why the 'Games to come each week' thread has been closed.

Merely because this thread serve(s/d) the same purpose. That was a "2012" thread while this is/was (you get the idea) for 2013. It's essentially the same. I thought my closing message in that thread made that clear.

But why not doing the same thread again for 2013? Personally I don't need a list with all games that come out in the next months/years (and like raptor said, it is also a lot of work to update these lists). I just want to know what comes in the next week or 2.

Yep the next week is all i want.

Its like the old computer magazines always had a 'coming soon' section with the games coming out next.

Its a shame every Wednesday at 11am NZ time we dont always know what games are coming, i'm stunned companies dont hype up their games more before they come out.

Often theres quite a few surprises which turn up which no one knew about

If you put aside the monthly thing in this thread, isn't there already a list of games to come next week?

From the OP:

24 Banana Kong
24 Half-Inch Heist
24 Might and Magic Clash of Heroes
24 Tennis in the Face
24 Undead Slayer

Think of this thread as an expanded version of last years. There's nothing more to it. Anyways, if Raptor doesn't want to continue, this thread will most likely just end up exactly like last years. Nothing wrong with that...and we can always change the title to "Games to Come Each Week 2013".

Sure, I think I could probably do the upcoming part of this thread...it was a big mistake of mine to attempt to list the releases, those were the time killers.

I'll update the post tonight to remove the releases. Could one of you mods change the title to "Upcoming Releases of 2013"

Thanks for the encouragement!
