1:54:12
“Prime core fully seated.” Our second PlatinumGames joint of the year, comes in the form of 2019 Switch exclusive Astral Chain.

1:59:27
“None of us were there when it happened.” With some delay, we bring you our podcast about the Hungarian/Japanese developed shoot 'em up, Sine Mora. Originally a 2012 Xbox Live Arcade title, but since ported to multiple formats, this supergroup developer mashup with an Akira Yamaoka soundtrack is a game that pleased mainstream game reviewers more than it pleased the dedicated shmup community. Leon, Michiel, Tony and community correspondents debate the benefits of bullet time and popcorn. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_526.mp3   Music featured in this issue:1.

1:58:53
“By the Scribes, we gather in their names. To face the Nightwings here before the flames.” In 2017 Supergiant games returned with the launch of their next game. A unique complement of high fantasy role playing game and pseudo sports simulator.

What Remains of Edith Finch – Cane and Rinse No.522
1:59:42
“What kind of family finishes building a cemetery before starting the house?” An interactive rumination on what death means to the living, is one way to describe Giant Sparrow's follow-up to The Unfinished Swan. Or, a walking simulator set in a big house is another. Leon, Brian, Leah, Tony and community correspondents follow in the Finch's footsteps to attempt to decide for themselves whether they believe a curse, fate or simply the fragile nature of existence is at play in What Remains of Edith Finch. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_522.mp3   1.

1:59:26
“GOAL IN!” Although Taito ultimately followed up the original with some more formulaic, direct type sequels, Rainbow Islands tells the real and true Story of Bubble Bobble 2. Leon, Karl and guest Sadie Flayeh - along with correspondents from the Cane and Rinse community - muse on a more innocent time, when the deliriously cute and colourful Rainbow Islands was widely available on then-contemporary systems and a beloved part of the late 80s/early 90s gaming zeitgeist.     http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_521.mp3   Music featured in this issue: 1.

Haunted Castle – Cane and Rinse No.509
“ONE PLAYER ONLY” In the third of our current run of Castlevania series podcasts, we arrive at the 1988 arcade game, Haunted Castle.

Dracula. Leon, Michiel, Tony, returning guest (and Haunted Castle tatsujin) Ben Cartlidge reflect upon this widely derided work, as well as looking in depth at the varied experiences offered by the various ROM sets. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_509.mp3   Music featured in this issue:1.

“Is it our destiny to defy destiny? It’s an interesting question.” When a beloved game is remade, there’s always the question: what will it be when it comes out... again? So many people have been asking that same question since the original Final Fantasy VII came out in 1997 that the long (long, long) awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake couldn’t help but be a pretty big deal. But is it really a remake? Or a sequel? Or something in between? Leah, Brian, James and Tom try to figure it out, and examine how the game got to where it is now. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_494.mp3   Cane and Rinse 494 edited by Jay Taylor You can support Cane and Rinse and in return receive an often extended version of the podcast four weeks early, along with exclusive podcasts, if you subscribe to our Patreon for the minimum of $2 per month (+VAT).  Do you have an opinion about a game we're covering that you'd like read on the podcast?

Double Divas by Motohiro Kawashima2. On Fire by Olivier Deriviere Edited by Jay Taylor The Sausage Factory is an interview-based podcast that lifts the lid on the makers of videogames. It examines the way in which games are made by asking the very people who create them, though the questions asked aren't just about game design, they also cover how developers made their start and what inspires them as creators. Split into two halves, the first segment delves into what makes the developers tick by asking about how they started, what and who inspires them and what games they are currently playing, whereas the second part of the show covers the game that they are currently working on and the thought processes behind its development. So, if you really want to hear about a game's gestation in full and frank detail then you have found the right podcast.

“Now you're playing with power; SUPER POWER!” Everything about our latest single format special podcast is just super. Leon, Brian, Michiel and returning guest Ben Cartlidge - along with a slew of contributors from the Cane and Rinse community - remember Nintendo's initially reluctant but ultimately triumphant foray into the 16-bit market. The Super Famicom/SNES/SNEZ/Ess-Enn-Ee-Ess boasts perhaps one of the most glittering libraries of any machine, and in this show we get to take a long, lingering look back at its many successes (and a few failures) as a machine, and as a platform. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/console_special_snes.mp3   Music featured in this podcast: 1.

Leon, Brian, James and Thomas discuss 2015's Batman: Arkham Knight, including what it means to play as the bat in 2020, the inclusion of a playable Batmobile and whether or not we feel that the developers over-egged the pudding with this epic finale.

Resident Evil 2 (2019) – Cane and Rinse No.403
1:59:42
“Enough with this cat and mouse game.” After almost two decades of feverish speculation, Capcom finally brought us the remake of Resident Evil 2 that the fans craved in 2019. This comprehensive, ground-up retooling of the original boasted quality of life refinements to bring it in line with modern games, but did it recapture the 1998 magic? Enter Leon, Jon, Josh, Leah and a rabid horde of contributors to review.

Console special No.6: SEGA Dreamcast
3:23:19
“Up to 6 billion players” The latest of our single platform podcast specials focuses on SEGA's final console, the Dreamcast. Leon, Karl and guests Ben Cartlidge (One Credit Classics) and John Linneman (Digital Foundry Retro) unpick the magic from the smoke and mirrors in an attempt to understand how and why the most powerful console ever (circa 1998/1999) failed to win the hearts and minds of the general public. Passionate prose from the community and a swift(ish) rundown of the machine's diverse and colourful library round out the show. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/con_spec_dreamcast.mp3   You can find out what both Jon and Ben are up to via the links below:Jon's twitterBen's twitterDreamcast special was edited by Jay Taylor

Final Fantasy XV – Cane and Rinse No.400
2:55:21
“My hair does not look like a chocobo butt.” In this issue, Josh, Leah, Charlotte and Tom hop into a convertible and embark on an adventure out on the open road. We'll take in the scenery, say hello to local wildlife and then share some laughs at camp over a bowl of suspiciously beautiful looking stew. That's right, this is our last issue on the mainline Final Fantasy series (for now) and we discuss how what was originally intended to be part of Final Fantasy XIII's Fabula Crystallis saga, evolved into a full-fledged numbered entry. With the change of leadership, the shift to real-time combat, a greater focus on an open world and many notable changes post-release, there is a lot to discuss, and don't even get us started on Mr. Feathers!

“Get bananas back from the Tikis!” In our latest podcast on the bequiffed ape, we land late in the Wii era with Donkey Kong Country Returns. 16 years after DK's third outing to the Country (see podcast issue 389), Retro Studios took up the reins and attempted to wrangle the hairy simian into the 2010s. Leon, Brian, Darren and Michiel have all beaten this notoriously challenging game - 'waggle' and all - and, along with contributions from the Cane and Rinse community, want to talk about it. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_399.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

Planescape: Torment – Cane and Rinse No.398
1:59:35
“Time is not your enemy, forever is.” A rare foray into the world of the Western CRPG for us, but 1999's Planescape: Torment ticks a lot of boxes. Leon, James, Jon and guest Sean Bell contemplate the nature of humanity and its relationship with impermanence, as well as why you shouldn't play the Switch ports of 20 year old games that were designed specifically for mouse and keyboard. As usual we also incorporate pandimensional missives from those who have already trodden their own tormented path through the Planescape. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_398.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

"Hey, Been a long time, Donkey-Dude!" After the rousing success of Diddy Kong Racing and Banjo-Kazooie, it was time for Rare to step up to the plate and turn (almost) the rest of the Kong family into three-dimensional beings. Explore DK Isles for the first time in glorious 3D and admire the charisma which pours out of almost every facet of this behemoth adventure. Jump into the tag barrel and choose between Darren, Brian, Ryan and returning guest Joey Bagi to see just what they think of the N64 platformer so big, Nintendo had to include an expansion pak just to fit it all in! It’s time to party like it’s 1999 and this party starts off with a simian-themed rap. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_395.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

“Eight long years to bounce back here, I’ll win this time and make you cheer!” Eekum Bokum! It’s another Banjo-Kazooie adventure but this time almost everything is different. The famous Bear and Bird duo are back in the groove but also firmly in the seats of many bespoke (or pre-built) vehicles. In a rather controversial move, the fourth outing for Rare’s charismatic creatures isn’t a traditional 3D platformer and requires the player to think outside the box by playing with physics. What do Darren, Ryan and guest Joey Bagi think of the first Banjo-Kazooie game under Microsoft's wing? Have a listen and find out.

Interview Extra: Benn Powell
41:05
In this Interview Extra episode, Charlotte chats to Benn Powell about the ins and outs of designing randomisers for REmake Remastered and the remake of Resident Evil 2. Is your heart's desire a dozen Lisa Trevors in your RE game, or do you yearn for nothing but a swarm of bees? The choice is yours, thanks to Benn's hard work in adding an element of surprise to your favourite spooky zombie game! Benn (@bennpowell) has been developing games for many years, working at Team17 as a programmer on Worms Revolution and designing his own puzzle game, Operator Overload. Thanks to the support of a few Resident Evil speedrunners looking for a novel horror experience, Benn now devotes a huge chunk of his time to mapping out randomisers for the series. As Charlotte (@ccuttsgames) learnt, his door randomiser for REmake literally required plotting a detailed map, retracing the steps of Capcom and perhaps of Oswell E. Spencer himself... The interview covers a range of topics such as developing mods in an ethical fashion, the harsh world of independent development and Benn's favourite blooper reel footage from testing his mods. If you want to learn how mods read the memory of the game and even deter piracy, give our interview a listen! http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/benn_powell_interview.mp3   For further information on the mods, please visit Benn's site. To throw a few quid Benn's way in appreciation of his tireless dedication to the project, add to Benn's tip jar. You can sign up for Benn's Patreon here.

“At least we thought to bring entertainment.”  The eleventh show in our 13 podcast series about the mainline (and non-MMO) Final Fantasy series is all about 12. Final Fantasy XII spent a (then) world record five years in development as Square Enix pushed the boat out in terms of production values and innovation - shaking up the formula by taking cues from Western RPGs and MMOs. Leon, Brian, Josh, Leah and Cane and Rinse community contributors elaborate upon what struck a chord with them, and what hit a nerve. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_382.mp3   1.

Pilotwings 64 – Cane and Rinse No.380

“You earned a perfect score!!” The Big N roped in simulation and silicon graphics specialists Paradigm to assist them with N64 launch title, Pilotwings 64. The sequel to their 1990 'amateur flight simulation' Pilotwings (itself a previous gen launch title for the SNES), Pilotwings 64 replaced Mode 7 with spectacular solid, textured polygons - but did it retain the challenging yet quirky multidisciplinary gameplay? If nothing else it certainly brought the funk. Leon and Darren talk Birdman, Meca Hawk, Gyrocopters and Jumble Hoppers - as well as the series' follow-ups and legacy. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_380.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

Prey (2006) – Cane and Rinse No.377
1:59:47
“The world is full of stories, and from time to time they permit themselves to be told.” Before Duke Nukem Forever... in fact before Duke Nukem 3D, an ambitious first-person shooter called Prey was conceived. This 1995 concept lived on until the late 90s before being cancelled, then succeeded by a new take on the same scenario of a Native American jumping through dimensional portals to save humanity from hungry space aliens. The resulting game eventually arrived in 2006 to solid reviews, but how do we feel about it now?

“That’s disgusting” Stop me if you've heard this one before. A crack team of specially trained operatives are sent to investigate the mysterious goings on at a hidden research facility. However, something deadly has taken residence in the halls of the now abandoned structure, and it's hungry. Yes, we're talking about the other Shinji Mikami lead Capcom Survival Horror, or "Panic Horror" in this case. As Josh, Charlotte, Jon and Maria Roberts wander into the blood soaked metal corridors of the third energy laboratory, they ask themselves, is the removal of zombies and the addition of prehistoric reptiles enough to take this game from under Resident Evil's shadow and carve out its own place in the history of the genre? How do tank controls cope with more agile foes? How many heads does Regina have in her freezer? And finally, is it really necessary for Josh to be this much of a pedant about Dinosaur classification?

"Life is short, play more" In the fourth of our single format console special podcasts, we look back at Microsoft's big fat toe in the water, the 'OG' Xbox. Leon, Karl, Michiel and Tony consider how the Direct X Box changed the landscape of console gaming forever, coming out of the traps with a built-in hard drive and ethernet port combo. As usual, we also take a look at some of the key titles, the highlights and lowlights of the mean green machine's 1000+ game strong library, and we enjoy some memories from the first half of the 2000s from Cane and Rinse community members too. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/console_special_xbox.mp3   Our console specials are timed exclusive for our Patreon supporters, they become available here and on our regular feeds when our next special is ready for release.

Interview Extra: Metako
1:10:44
In this interview extra podcast, Charlotte Cutts interviews Metako, a speedrunner who regularly bashes through 80+ hour marathons of the Final Fantasy series JRPG speedruns are a bit of a strange beast: runners try to complete the games as fast as possible, yet they can still span over several hours. Imagine Charlotte’s surprise when she found out that one speedrunner strings together games in the Final Fantasy series into one enormous run that lasts several days. Wondering how you can come out of the other side of such a feat with your health intact, she had to have him on the show for an interview about his marathon techniques. Metako (@met4ko) very eloquently explained to Charlotte (@ccuttsgames) how he goes about physically and mentally preparing himself for his marathon attempts, as well as talking about how he balances streaming with his demanding day job as a secondary school teacher. He also talked about his appreciation for Final Fantasy X-2 and the thrill of competing in speedrunning races. Be sure to give it a listen – it may give you a whole new appreciation for speedrunning as an endurance event.

Disney’s Aladdin – Cane and Rinse No.369
1:58:57
“A cave of wonders...”  Separate licensing deals meant that both of the major 16-bit consoles received a bespoke game to tie-in with Disney's 1992 animated feature, Aladdin. Dave Perry and his Virgin team employed actual Disney animators, Western sensibility and a scimitar for the Mega Drive/Genesis incarnation. Meanwhile in Japan, a pre-Resident Evil Shinji Mikami and his Capcom crew conjured up a more fanciful, pastel shaded interpretation of the source. Leon, Brian, Leah, Tony and a company of correspondents compare and contrast the two different, yet curiously similar approaches. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_369.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

Persona 5 – Cane and Rinse No.368
1:59:56
"Let us start the game." In this issue Josh, Leah, Charlotte and Cane and Rinse newcomer Jesse uncover the treasures and dark desires of the fifth entry in Atlus and P-Studio's Shin Megami Tensei offshoot JRPG series. We discuss the game's message to "Wake Up, Get Up, Get Out There!" in the face of societal injustice and corrupt individuals in positions of power, but "Beneath the Mask" we uncover a desire to engage in the very thing it's so keen to criticise. Do the Phantom Thieves manage to steal our hearts? Is sneaking, shooting, slicing and Persona splicing a success? Can we manage to focus on our studies or do we end up eating unreasonably large burgers, believing this somehow makes us "brave"? Will the Cat let us sleep when we god damn choose or will it continue to steal precious hours of social time from us!? Does the game hold a "Last Surprise" none of us were expecting?

“None could stand before the horde but the Doom Slayer.”  Three years on from the release of id Software's sequel-cum-soft-reboot we ask just how DOOM is DOOM (2016)? Leon, Jacob, Jon and Karl kite and circle strafe their way through the campaign, the multiplayer and the creative carnage of the user created levels found in the SnapMap foundry. Contributions from the Cane and Rinse community also help us to answer that key question, and find that the answer is, of course, 'very'. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_367.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

"There is no good, there is no bad. Just perspective and opinion." It is my great honour to congratulate Josh, Leah, Brian and Tom for passing their exam and graduating to become official members of SeeD. As you all well known, being a member of SeeD comes with many privileges, but also many trials. They will be able to explore the many far reaches of the globe. From Deling City at the heart of the Galbadia Empire, all the way to the hidden technological super power of Esthar. The sights and sounds of which, will fill your younger class mates with a great deal of envy. But they must also summon their courage when facing down corrupt armies, time travelling sorceresses...wait, does this say a water fall of moon monsters!? Any way, every SeeD must master the elaborate technique of drawing and junctioning magic. Yes, this may feel tedious at first, but those with patience can unleash swift death upon their enemies. ...It is also important that you all sign this waiver, that states that "Balamb Garden is not responsible for any brain damage you may incur while using Guardian Forces on the field." Don't worry, it's just standard procedure. Nothing to worry about (cough). So, are you four ready for your first mission? It's to evaluate the 1999 entry in a popular JRPG series.

A little over twenty-one years on from its release, Leon, Josh, Leah and Thomas, along with a treasure chest of messages from the Lifestream, come together to express just why this instalment is held so dear by so many, while also acknowledging the game's infamous quirks and shortcomings. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_350.mp3 Music used in the issue: 1. World Map Theme by Nobuo Uematsu 2. Those Who Fight / Let the Battles Begin by Nobuo Uematsu Cane and Rinse 350 was edited by Sean O'Brien Don't forget, you can get the Cane and Rinse podcast a week early if you support our Patreon for just $1 a month!

“Welcome to the family, son!” And so after a year's worth of zombies, spooky mansions, scary laboratories, definitely not zombies, horrific scripts and shocking performances, we reach the end of our Resident Evil series of podcasts. 2017's Resident Evil VII: Biohazard felt like a reboot of sorts and so Leon, Brian, Leah and Sean debate - partnered with a divided Cane and Rinse community - whether or not another change of perspective was a step too far, or the shot in the arm that the franchise needed http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_349.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

Leon, Josh, Karl, Michiel and our support team of community contributors debate the pros and cons of the sequel over the original; its enhancements, refinements and those areas where perhaps we feel that it didn't quite succeed in making a great leap forward. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_348.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

“You've made it this far, haven't you?” In our penultimate Resident Evil series show, Leon, Karl, Leah and a host of community contributors partake in a cathartic session of group therapy. We speculate on what internal and external machinations led Resident Evil 6 to turning out the way that it did, as well as doing our best to articulate why this game seemingly disappointed so many players. We even find a few things to about the package to like, and share a few laughs along the way. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_346.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

1:59:27
“Play nice! Play nice!” Leon, Brian, Darren and Michiel pair up for a frantic session of the fourth game in Nintendo's cartoon racer series, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! The game launched to great anticipation but a mixed reception in 2003. Was the GameCube game too gimmicky, too chaotic for its own good, or is it only right and proper that this was the instalment that locked in the aesthetic and handling templates for the next 15 years and five instalments (or more)? http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_344.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

1:59:30
"The world before the fall, Lovely is the light of dawn, Noble is the heart of man..." Josh, Leah, Jon and Maya Santandrea continue our journey through the Final Fantasy series with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System's final entry. Hironobu Sakaguchi, who has been intimately involved with the series up to this point, takes a reduced role as Producer for this title and instead Yoshinori Kitase and Hiroyuki Ito take on directing duties. With this change in responsibilities came a change of style and approach as compared with series up to this point. This would ultimately shape the trajectory of Final Fantasy as it moved onto new devices. We discuss how we feel about these changes, plus our responses to the largest cast of playable characters in the series entire history and a villain that represents a very different kind of evil than we've seen up this point. This and more, as we cover Square's 1994 release, Final Fantasy VI. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_342.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

“You're merely postponing the inevitable!” For the eighth of our ten podcasts on the mainline Resident Evil games, we return to Kijuju for potentially the most controversial and divisive entry in the series. Leon, Charlotte, Jacob and Michiel decide whether or not Resident Evil 5 retained enough of its mighty predecessor's DNA to stay relevant, or if - Uroboros like - the franchise was starting to eat its own tail as a 'me-too' Gears of War type affair. The panel and our contributors also discuss the thorny issue of the game's African setting and accompanying imagery. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_341.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

We discuss the lengthy development time for Headfirst Productions' second and final release before the company went bankrupt. The panel also asks how effectively it feels that Lovecraft's vision of cosmic horror can be conveyed in the context of a first person shooter.

“You don't seriously think a conservative mind can chart a new course for the world, do you?” For the first time ever - as we continue our run through the mainline Resident Evil games - we give a game a second Cane and Rinse podcast treatment. 13 years on from its release and seven years since we last reviewed, it, Capcom's hugely well reviewed Resident Evil 4 comes under the microscope once again. Leon, Karl, Leah and Sean are your panel this time around as we pick up some of the elements that we missed in our first show, including the critical adaptive difficulty working behind the scenes.

1:59:09
“GO AHEAD DAUNTLESSLY! MAKE RAPID PROGRES!” Strawberry print boxers all round as Cane and Rinse makes its first journey to the Demon World Village of Ghosts 'n Goblins (aka Makaimura). Leon, Michiel and guest Ben Cartlidge consult their internal thesaruses in an attempt to use as many variations on the words hard/difficult/challenging as possible, and we also hear from the community who have sampled the NES, C64 and Spectrum ports of Capcom's 1985 'levels and ladders survival horror'.

Resogun – Cane and Rinse No.334
1:59:53
“Armageddon.” Veteran Finnish code aces Housemarque helped launch a new generation with their PS4 (then) exclusive, Resogun. Taking its cues from classics Defender, Drop Zone and Datastorm - as well as a few from Housmarque's previous gen banger, Super Stardust HD - Resogun pushed the PS4's voxel-pumping power to the limit. Leon, Josh, Karl and community member Camille Rousseau get deep into aesthetics, mechanics and score chasing - with particular emphasis on Camille's 100+ hours spent in survival mode! http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_334.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

"Squad 7, move out!" Alright squad, listen up. The objective is to assist Josh, Michiel and Simon Cole in successfully evaluating Sega's 2008 Tactics RPG, Valkyria Chronicles. They'll be under heavy fire from difficulty spikes and a flawed ranking system, but we'll be countering with sketch book aesthetics, rousing music and third-person combat.

Final Fantasy V demands a lot from its players, and our panel.

Leon, Michiel, new contributor Marvin Alexis and the Cane and Rinse community attempt to go beyond Daytona USA's beloved basics - those SEGA blue skies and some memorable music - to understand why people are still playing this vintage arcade title a quarter of a century on from its original release. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_331.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

“It's gonna be dangerous from here on in, why don't we cooperate?” Perhaps appropriately, the last 'classic' style Resident Evil game (for a long while at least) would be the official, canonical prequel - Resident Evil 0. Leon, Darren, Michiel and guest Jon Salmon climb aboard the Ecliptic Express - the last train to Biohazard central - to report on their leech-infested adventures.

Secret of Mana – Cane and Rinse No.329
1:59:27
“Time flows like a river... and history repeats…” On a mid-90s roll, some of the team behind the Final Fantasy games broke off to create a follow-up to Square's 1991 Game Boy title, Seiken Densetsu (aka Final Fantasy Mystic Quest). This sequel was intended to be a more ambitious and action-driven type of RPG for the - then forthcoming - SNES CD add-on. When the relationship between Nintendo and Sony broke down, Seiken Densetsu 2 was repurposed for cartridge and released in the West as Secret of Mana. In this podcast, Leon, Brian, Josh and Leah see if they can (re)discover the magic of Randi, Primm and Popoi's colourful and whimsical adventure. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_329.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

Josh, Tony, Darren and new contributor Brian Edwards discuss their opportunity to indulge in the common fantasy of being able to reverse all your mistakes, in Jonathan Blow's 2008 Summer of Arcade release, Braid.

“Here we go!” It's the third of our sporadic but ongoing series on the Mario Kart franchise and so we arrive at 2001's Mario Kart: Super Circuit (aka Mario Kart Advance) on the GBA. This time, Nintendo handed the reins over to their trusted independent allies Intelligent Systems, for which this title remains to this day the one and only racing game on their largely stellar CV. Leon, Darren and Michiel decide if they think this handheld SNES/N64 hybrid-cum-sequel took the chequered flag, or whether it's since been retired by its own successors. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_327.mp3 Music used in this issue: 1.

The Stanley Parable – Cane and Rinse No.318
1:24:55
“In here, I can be happy, forever. I will be happy.” Stanley popped his headphones on and started listening to his favourite podcast, Cane and Rinse. Disappointingly, this issue was hosted by "Diet Leon Cox" Joshua Garrity and a panel that included some Computer Game Show cast off called Sean Bell... oh, and James Carter was present I guess. But then something surreal started to happen. At first Stanley dismissed it as a hilarious coincidence that this game character they were discussing, shared his name. But as the conversation continued, Stanley could no longer dismiss the truth of what was accruing. "They're talking about me!" Stanley thought. "Not just me, but every choice I've ever made! Every choice I ever even pondered!" This was deeply troubling to Stanley. After a quick google search, Stanley's fears were confirmed. In 2013, a man by the name of Davey Wreden had taken his life story and passed it off as some subversive, choice driven game called "The Stanley Parable". Though the violation Stanley felt, soon turned to fascination. What would the panel feel about Stanley's choices? What do these choices say about the nature of choices? Also, did James really play that mini-game for four hours? Only one way to find out... http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_318.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1. Introducing Stanley by Blake Robinson 2.

Leon, Karl and Michiel's souls still burn as they relive the giddy days of the PS1 original and its astonishing Dreamcast follow-up, before SoulCaliburs II, III, IV and V each brought new guest characters, gameplay elements, glitches, technical issues and even memory-card-threatening bugs. Your razor-sharp community correspondence and Three Word Reviews also ring out. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_316.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1: Edge of Soul by Benten Maru 2: Under the Star of Destiny by Junichi Nakatsuru, Yoshihito Yano, Asuka Sakai, Rio Hamamoto, Ryuichi Takada, Junichi Takagi Cane and Rinse 316 was edited by Sean O'Brien (@Xer0Signal).

"Maybe they're out pillaging the countryside like good soldiers of doom?" Continuing our ongoing series, Josh, Leah and Jon say goodbye to the NES era of this franchise with the light hearted, short story collection that is Final Fantasy III.

Interview extra: Gareth Damian Martin of Heterotopias
50:54
Gareth Damian Martin (@JumpOvertheAge) is a writer, game designer, and photographer. Early last year, he took his column at Kill Screen, entitled "Heterotopias" and fleshed it out into a full online magazine. He and numerous contributors have used this platform to discuss video games using architectural sensibilities. From the faux-soviet future of 1989's Strider to a thorough examination of gaming's various bathrooms, Heterotopias finds artistry and design in unlikely and thrilling corners of the medium. Heterotopias' newest project is a book! The Continuous City is a exploration of video game cities, captured on physical black and white film. In this interview, Jacob Geller (@yacobg42) talks to Gareth about his unique method of photography, how to define a city, and the unique architectural space games reside in. The Continuous City is being funded on Unbound. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/gareth_damian_martin_interview.mp3   Edited by Jay Taylor (@JaySevenZero).

“Ricky Winterborn!” As the N64 original turns 20, Leon, Darren, Michiel and Tony wrap up warm for another few runs down the mighty twin peaks of 1080 Snowboarding and 1080 Avalanche. Remarkably, before the first 1080 there had only been a handful of snowboarding videogames created, yet in the five or so years between 1080 and it's GameCube follow-up, a further 40 such titles were released. Did this fact have an influence on how our panel and correspondents feel about the respective games - and in the wake of them renewing the 1080 Ten Eighty trademark, will Nintendo ever return to the slopes? http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_305.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1: Vacant Lives by Kenta Nagata 2: Choke by Cauterize Cane and Rinse 305 was edited by Ryan Hamann (@InsrtCoins) Don't forget, you can get the Cane and Rinse podcast a week early if you support our Patreon for just $1 a month!

“Skills for Kills, Agent. Skills for Kills.” In anticipation of the series' forthcoming third instalment, Leon, Leah, Tony and guest David Turner from The Computer Game Show podcast revisit Realtime Worlds' 2007 Crackdown. Arriving in the relative early days of the open-world sandbox experience - and featuring online co-op to boot, Crackdown wowed many with its intoxicating cocktail of liberating superhero powers, large-scale destruction and the addictive hoovering up of some orbs. Does the game stand up more than a decade down the line, why did the sequel seemingly miss the mark and what does Crackdown 3 need to offer to recapture players' imaginations? http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_304.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1: Main Menu Music Instrumental (Paradise Bird Theory) by DJ Krush 2: Beat em by DJ Krush Cane and Rinse 304 was edited by Jay Taylor (@JaySevenZero).

Our Patreon update for December 2017
16:12
Thank you to all of our Patreon patrons and supporters. We didn’t hit our ambitious target, but we still thrive on your support. We knew it was a tall order and in the end we fell quite a way short of the amount we needed to go full time and produce twice the amount of podcasts in 2018. HOWEVER! We more than doubled our income which is just wonderful, and really incentivises us, as well as allowing us to keep on putting our maximum into continuing with this fabulous project. The next 50 podcasts will be announced before the new year. Keep your eye on the website and our social media spaces. The whole team is thrilled about the 50 shows we have lined up for you in 2018, and we can’t wait to be able to share the schedule with you. As a reward, from issue 301 onwards, backers will receive a link to download each Cane and Rinse podcast a week early. Issue 301 will be released on Monday 15th January for backers, Monday 22nd January for everyone else. If you have any great ideas for other bonuses or incentives that we could offer to those who do back the show, please let us know via the Patreon page, the forum, Facebook or Twitter. Don’t forget that you can also support the show by buying yourself a lovely Cane and Rinse or Sound of Play T-Shirt or bag from our Spreadshirt store. We net £2 to £3 from each purchase. We intend to add some smaller items of merchandise that you can order directly from us in the New Year. Watch this space but look out for things like mugs and keyrings that will cost a little less per item than the bags and shirts, but will be equally well made and come adorned with our classy logo designs. We will also be adding a PayPal button to the Cane and Rinse homepage, giving you lovely people another way of supporting our endeavours with a simple, one time payment with no further commitment or sign-up required. Remember: The minimum donation remains at just $1 US per month - which is currently around 75p, or €0.85 - for an absolute minimum of 12 hours of quality podcasts per month. We believe that’s great value for money, even if you don’t listen to every single show. You may be aware that the terms and conditions of Patreon had been announced to change, but due to a swift and strong backlash, that decision has since been reversed. Patrons will continue to pay what they pay, while the creators (i.e. us in this case) will continue to bear the brunt of Patreon’s admin fees and such - which is absolutely fine as far as we are concerned! You will hear me refer to this matter in Cane and Rinse podcast issues 299 (Call of Duty) and 300 (The Witcher III: Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine) as they were recorded in advance, but the matter has since been resolved. The more financial support we get the more time and effort we can put into researching and producing the show, meaning that everyone ends up with a better experience. Jay and I plan to check in with you all via monthly update mini-casts with all the latest from the world of Cane and Rinse from now on. Thank you once again for your incredible support throughout our sixth year, and here’s to another twelve months of Cane and Rinse ahead. Finally, as always, if you are not able or do not want to support Cane and Rinse, please consider a donation to the incredible charity Special Effect who work to put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play videogames. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/patreon_update_dec_2017.mp3

“Death to the fascists!” Following on from our Medal of Honor: Allied Assault podcast back in 2014, we move on to Infinity Ward's first ever game, the original Call of Duty. Leon, Karl, Sean and Tony return to WWII as the theatre of conflict - just as Activision has done itself with its latest entry into the franchise - and see what this once technical tour de force and critical darling has left to offer in 2017. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_299.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

Mario Kart 64 – Cane and Rinse No.298
1:47:24
"Battle." Cane and Rinse rejoins the race in 1996, as we review Mario Kart 64 - a wildly divisive entry in a much-loved but polarising series. Leon, Darren, Leah and Michiel discuss the transition from Mode 7 to polygons as well as many other significant (including some still controversial) alterations to mechanics and handling Nintendo made for this, their first kart sequel. As usual we also hear of the community's love and hate for Mario Kart 64 when we collectively reminisce about fun and fury filled days and nights of blue shell shenanigans on the Nintendo 64 in the mid-late 90s, and beyond. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_298.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

Final Fantasy – Cane and Rinse No.297
1:59:06
The people wait, their only hope, a prophecy....” In the first podcast of what we intend to be several years' worth of Final Fantasy coverage, we return to the original 1987 title. Warriors of Light Leon, Josh, Leah and Jon Salmon have ground their way through the 'bare bones' of Square's business-saving epic across various formats and have survived to recount the tale. We also hear from some members of the community who saved the world from Chaos 'back in the day', as well as those who have returned to the start of the FF journey having stepped on board further down the line. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_297.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

Mega Man and Mega Man 2 – Cane and Rinse No.296
1:59:13
“FIGHT, MEGAMAN! FOR EVERLASTING PEACE!” Capcom's Rockman - better known in the West as Mega Man - blasted his way onto the scene 30 years ago with a tough, tantalising Famicom/NES debut. 'The Blue Bomber' would go on to appear in well over 100 games across countless formats, yet perhaps his most fondly-regarded outing was his second, 1988's Mega Man 2. OLD MAN Leon, DUTCH MAN Michiel and COOL MAN Sean each has their own take on the earliest games in the long-running series, as do many contributors from the Cane and Rinse community who weigh in with reviews of three words and more. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_296.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

Project Gotham Racing 3 and 4 – Cane and Rinse No.295
1:48:57
"ROLLING START" Moving onto the last lap, Karl, Tony and returning guest Gary Blower round out the final two iterations in the Project Gotham Racing series. Project Gotham Racing 3, launch showcase title for the Xbox 360, a technical tour de force, but did it live up to the fond memories of PGR2 (as discussed in podcast issue 262)? Then Project Gotham Racing 4 introduced bikes into the series, but was it necessary - and did it help or hinder the experience? Join the team as we discuss the pros, the cons and the legacy left behind by the now defunct Liverpool studio, Bizarre Creations. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_295.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

"My scythe... I like to keep it next to where my heart used to be." Tim Schafer's final game for LucasArts was his much-loved noir meets the Mexican Day of the Dead mashup, Grim Fandango. Has Manny Calavera's four year undead odyssey proved timeless, or - even when Remastered - have the visuals and puzzles seen better days? Leon and Karl plus returning guest Brian Tarran and Sound of Play Extra's Thomas Quillfeldt remember trying to resist consulting walkthroughs, meanwhile we have some sharply divided community correspondence regarding Grim Fandango's merits. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_291.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.

Bayonetta 2 – Cane and Rinse No.290
1:49:42
"Heaven condemned me, and hell deceived me. Now, it's time to teach them both a lesson." Autumn 2014 saw PlatinumGames' Bayonetta 2 arrive as a Wii U exclusive, reviewed well and showcased the Japanese developer's talents for creating mind boggling set-pieces, deeply technical combat and naked ladies summoning hair demons. Leon, Leah, Michiel and special guest - hardcore Bayonetta player and superfan Yoshesque (@yoshesque) - discuss the game in both its own right and as a sequel to the much-lauded 2009 original. As usual we also hear from the Cane and Rinse community, which is divided as to whether Bayo 2 is an improvement upon, or a step back from the Hideki Kamiya-directed predecessor.

1:58:03
"...Who am I?" Join Josh, Tony and Sean as we travel to the year 2104 and try our best not to slip up on the mysterious black gel slavering the hull of the deep sea research facility, the PATHOS II. We confront monstrosities created in this abyss that not only make us fear for our lives, but some that make us doubt what it means to be human and what value our individuality really has. We find out whether the nightmares stalking the corridors scare us nearly as much as the nightmares manifested by own minds, in Frictional Games' SOMA. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_289.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1.
