The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.249  

“That’s enough out of you, Sparkles.” Not D-pads nor analogue sticks but styluses. Or should that be stylii? Either way, a contentious change of control method as we conclude the first year of our complete run through of Zelda reviews with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Leon, Josh and Leah discuss Daiki Iwamoto’s directorial debut, including – of course – its innovative but controversial conceit of a repeating ‘central’ […]

MDK – The Cane and Rinse videogame podcast No.248  

“Good job Kurt, you saved Kirkcaldy (tourism is safe!)” Leon, Tony and Sean Bell display their Mighty Deep Knowledge of Shiny’s bizarre 1997 3D run and gunner and consider the game’s origins, technical achievements and legacy, as well as considering whether or not hero Kurt Hectic’s phallus-headed bondage suit is the Most Daringly Kinky element of the experience. Will MDK receive a Mildly Derogatory Kicking or Mainly Decisive Kudos? Listen […]

Metropolis Street Racer – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.247  

“It seeks ambition… and it will change the way you think about driving. Forever.” Join Karl Moon (@NokkonWud), Tony Atkins (@GhostWorld80)and guest Gary Blower (@Xantiriad) as they race through the city streets of London, San Francisco and Tokyo, giving kudos to the origins of videogame street racing in Bizarre Creations highly influential, yet also troubled, Dreamcast release, Metropolis Street Racer – aka MSR. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_247.mp3   Music used in this issue: […]

Fallout: New Vegas – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.246  

“It’s… a thing. A science thing. It hurts robots.” Honest hearts Josh, Sean and James take a long journey down the lonesome road towards Obsidian’s Fallout: New Vegas. Will the bright lights of the big city still dazzle in this post-apocalyptic wasteland, or will they be dulled by old world blues? http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_246.mp3   Music used in this issue: Track 1: In the Shadow of the Valley by the Lost Weekend […]

Amnesia: The Dark Descent – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.245  

“There is nothing left, everything is gone.” Join Josh, Leah, Sean and special guest Simon Cole, as they explore the dilapidated halls of Brennenburg Castle and face the Lovecraftian monstrosities found within. Can we keep our cool when confronted with horrors that decay the mind, simply by baring witness to them? A seminal horror title, that may well have had a hand in crafting the beginnings of the “Let’s Play” […]

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.244  

“He’s not exactly what I had in mind, but… I guess he’ll do.” Swansong for Nintendo’s GameCube and curtain raiser for its Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess arrived at the end of 2006 to critical rapture. Leon, Josh, newly ‘permanent’ Cane and Rinse member Leah and the departing (for Nintendo) Ryan consider whether a game can be simultaneously “underrated”, “overrated”, “the best Zelda game ever” and “the worst […]

Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.243

D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.240  

“I hate drugs and chewing gum.” The daring and diligent dudes of digital dialogue discuss the deviant, delerious Dark Dreams Don’t Die. Does it demand devotion, or do the discussants dryly dismiss it as they are driven to delete its data? Ryan, Tony, James, and Sean disembark into SWERY‘s D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die. http://media.blubrry.com/caneandrinse/caneandrinse.com/podcast/cane_and_rinse_issue_240.mp3   Dulcit ditties demoed in this issue: Track 1: Theme from D4 by MANYO Track […]

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.239  

“It’s not big; we’re just small!” Capcom’s dinky Game Boy Advance offering gets its own full-sized podcast of course.

Grand Theft Auto V – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.258  

"Nothing looks more suspicious in America than someone who's actually prepared to make something."

The panel dissect the open world, the gameplay mechanics and the unholy trinity of characters, as well as the game's story and script. Expanding online component GTA Online is also on the menu and up for discussion. As usual we also get to hear about the experiences of the ever-reliable and articulate Cane and Rinse community on their experiences of playing one of the most successful games ever released.

Out Run – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.237  

"Checkpoint!"

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, SEGA AM2's iconic coin-op racer Out Run is the subject of our latest podcast retrospective. Leon, Ryan (new to the game in 2016!) and returning guest Dan Clark talk arcade awe, sprite-scaling, Magical Sound Showers, and special techniques as well as touching upon the myriad - successful and unsuccessful - conversions over the decades. The panel also remember the game's direct legacy of spin-offs and unofficial sequels, stopping short of OutRun 2 - which will get its own podcast in the future.

Kick Off, Player Manager, Kick Off 2 and GOAL! – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.236  

"Penalty."

Dino Dini and Steve Screech collaborated in the late 80's to make the 16-bit footy phenomenon that was a ubiquitous multiplayer fixture for the next two to three years, at least until Sensible Soccer came and stole away its title. Soccer lovers Leon, Karl and guest CJ Black remember the original brace of Kick Off titles, as well as Kick Off's deep and compelling spin-off Player Manager and both Kick Off 3 and - 'the real Kick Off 3' - GOAL! (a.k.a. Dino Dini's Soccer). Supported by our faithful fans, we also bring things up to date with talk of the ongoing Kick Off scene and a brief look at the recent release of Dino Dini's Kick Off Revival.

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords – The Cane and Rinse podcast No.235  

"Even if you worms attack me as a group, I'll skewer the lot of you on my mighty trident!"

Our ninth The Legend of Zelda podcast sees us tackle the co-op multiplayer antics of Four Swords on the GBA and its sequel, Four Swords Adventures for GameCube. Leon, Josh, Ryan and Sean (along with contributions from the Cane and Rinse community) discuss the considerable barriers to entry - both then and now - needed to jump through to play these curious collaborative components of Nintendo's mighty franchise.

The Wolf Among Us – The Cane and Rinse podcast No. 234

Rock Band – Cane and Rinse 233  

"Hello there ladies and gents, are you ready to rock?"

A combo of Leon (guitar), Ryan (bass), Tony (drums) and full combo-meister Paul Shotton (vox) passionately recall their many, many hours with the various iterations of Rock Band, from the 2007 launch of the first band-in-a-box, via numbered sequels, LEGO and The Beatles, right up to its current gen revival in 2015. We also feature some wonderful contributions to the set-list from the Cane and Rinse community.

80 Days – Cane and Rinse 232  

"We leave for Paris on the 8:25. In an hour."

Pack your bags! Ryan, James, Tony, and special guest Sean Bell grab their train schedules, wool trousers, and iPhones to play the globe-trotting interactive fiction favorite, 80 Days. The wayward adventurers go under the hood with the game's deceptively complex mechanics and narrative structure and unearth treasure over 140 years in the making, with some helpful travel tips from the lovely Cane and Rinse global community. Share their tales of travels near and far, but beware: there be spoilers!

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker – Cane and Rinse 231  

"Oceans... Oceans... Oceans... Oceans... Oceans as far as the eye can see."

Or Zelda IX. Or is it VIII? Seven-and-a-half? That's why no-one calls it that. Anyway, this is definitely the eighth of our 18 planned podcasts on Nintendo's fantasy franchise. Leon, Josh, Ryan and Leah Haydu consider and confer all aspects of the 2002/03 GameCube game, it's 'controversial' unveiling, divisive art style and its (perhaps surprisingly different) 2013 HD update. Messages in bottles from the far-flung corners of the sprawling archipelago that makes up the Cane and Rinse community are also opened and orated.
