Joust – The Cane and Rinse videogame podcast No.278  

"BUZZARD BAIT!" Recorded one day after the 35th anniversary of the game's arcade debut, the Cane and Rinse crusty crew remembers Williams' bizarre bird-battler Joust. Leon, Michiel and returning guest Dan Clark mull over the origins of John Newcomer's crazy concept, as well as trying to establish exactly what the game's legacy is, beyond Balloon Fight and Joust 2: Survival of the Fittest. Painful puns are mostly circumnavigated, as are our podcast's trademark mentions of predictable touchstones such as Dark Souls and Super Meat Boy.

Life Is Strange – The Cane and Rinse videogame podcast No.277  

“No wonder they call it a ‘web’ – nothing can ever get out.” Time travel is complicated. When time travel is the best hope you have of finding a missing friend, as it is in Life Is Strange, it’s even more of a minefield.

Join Leah Tony, Jay and Josh as they follow the story of Max Caulfield and Chloe Price through five episodes of Dontnod Entertainment’s tale, and discuss the choices they made along the way. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_277.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1: Max & Chloe by Jonathan Morali Cane and Rinse 277 was edited by Jay Taylor (@JaySevenZero).

Robotron: 2084 – The Cane and Rinse videogame podcast No.273  

"DUE TO A GENETIC ENGINEERING ERROR, YOU POSSESS SUPERHUMAN POWERS." Robotron: 2084 - by Williams' 'Vid Kidz' - may not have been the first twin-stick shoot'em up, but it was perhaps the one that most clearly defined the genre template which would be followed for three and a half decades (and counting). Leon, Michiel and returning guest Dan Clark attempt to understand what makes this most challenging of games so enduringly compelling, and also enjoy a collection of your Three Word Reviews from Twitter (follow us @caneandrinse). http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_273.mp3   Cane and Rinse 273 was edited by Ryan Hamann (@InsrtCoins).

Tales of Vesperia – The Cane and Rinse videogame podcast No.272  

"I can't even win with a sword anymore." For more than twenty years, the sprawling, lush titles of the Tales series have captivated JRPG fans the world over. Like its more “Fantastic” brethren, the series doesn’t require that the games be played together or in order, so even as the tenth title of sixteen (or so), Tales of Vesperia serves as a perfect jumping-off point as the first on the seventh generation of consoles and the only entry on a Microsoft platform. Leah, Karl, and Michiel immerse themselves in the world of Terca Lumireis and explore the intriguing characters relationships and intricate battle systems that they find there. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_272.mp3   Music used in this issue: 1: The Dawn of Departure by Motoi Sakuraba/Hibiki Aoyama. 2: Crossing the Small Hills by Motoi Sakuraba/Hibiki Aoyama.

Double Dragon – The Cane and Rinse videogame podcast No.271  

"INVADE THE ENEMYS BASE" After the success of Nekketsu Koha Kunio-kun and Renegade, Yoshihisa Kishimoto of Technos Japan set about outdoing himself with Double Dragon. The resulting two-player brawler would go on to spawn multiple sequels and spin-offs, as well as influencing every game in the genre that came after it. Leon, James, Karl and Michiel start at the beginning and work their way through as far as Technos' demise and Double Dragon Advance. Contributions from the forum flesh things out as we try to pay lip service to the myriad successful and unsuccessful ports. A second Double Dragon podcast - issue 285 - will focus on Double Dragon Neon (2012), Double Dragon II: The Wander of The Dragons (2013) and Double Dragon IV (2017). http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_271.mp3   Music used in this issue: Track 1: Opening Theme by Kazunaka Yamane Track 2: Slums by Kazunaka Yamane Cane and Rinse 271 was edited by Ryan Hamann (@InsrtCoins).

Tetris – The Cane and Rinse videogame podcast No.270  

"LINES LEFT" Tetris: Such a simple, elegant game with such a complex and convoluted back story. Leon, Josh, Karl and Leah recall the heights of their Tetris addictions and the versions (among countless versions) that worked for them and those incarnations which failed to capture the spark of Alexey Pazhitnov's original. As usual, the panel is embellished by the memories of the Cane and Rinse community, and also discuss high level play of both the NES version at The Classic Tetris World Championships, as favoured by purists - and also Arika's super-hardcore The Grand Master series with its speed 999 and its invisible tetrominoes. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_270.mp3   Music used in this issue: Track 1: Tetris theme (Game Boy version) by Hirokazu Tanaka (Russian trad.)
