Cane and Rinse is a weekly podcast made by passionate videogaming enthusiasts aimed at like-minded listeners. Our ambition is to provide in-depth discussion with help from knowledgeable, articulate guests from the gaming community, the world of games development and beyond.
Overwatch – Cane and Rinse No.469
Join Josh, Brian, Jesse and Rich as we slip into some brightly coloured spandex, use unstable sci-fi contraptions to defend our position and get angry at Josh for picking Hanzo…again. What does superhero theming and Pixar style animation bring to the multiplayer FPS genre? Does the meshing of a Team Fortress structure with a MOBA approach to the large roster of characters work? What complications come about with a game that is aesthetically inclusive, but with a gate keeping community? All this and more, as we cover Blizzard’s 2016 Multiplayer Hero Shooter, Overwatch.
Disco Elysium – Cane and Rinse No.468
A mystery is afoot. Ryan converses with the voices in his head; Josh, Leah, and Jon, to discover the grim political realities at the heart of 2019's CRPG classic Disco Elysium.
Trinity – Cane and Rinse No.467
For the first time in the ten-year history of the Cane and Rinse videogame podcast, we deep-dive into a text adventure: Infocom's Trinity. Leon, Jesse, Jon and Sean Bell from The Computer Game Show use only their brains, fingers and keyboards to attempt to unravel a complex sci-fi narrative that features no graphics whatsoever. The crew also looks back at the origins of the form, with reference to other examples of the genre, while keeping this particularly intricate and intelligent 1986 example front and centre.
Streets of Rage 4 – Cane and Rinse No.466
Eight years on from our original Streets of Rage trilogy podcast, we are finally able to bring you the sequel. Daring revivalist developers Lizardcube and Guard Crush Games, under the publisher umbrella of retro specialists Dotemu, brought us the long awaited Streets of Rage 4 in 2020. Leon, Brian, Michiel and community correspondents head out once again to tear up the seedy sidewalks of Wood Oak City and beyond.
Mario Kart Wii – Cane and Rinse No.465
The biggest selling racing game of all time (at the time of recording), and the sixth mainline entry in Nintendo's character racing series, Mario Kart Wii. Leon, Brian, Jesse and community correspondents remember wrangling Wii Wheels and wilful wifi connectors to go karting with Miis around the world.
Wave Race 64 – Cane and Rinse No.464
Between an early showing and its release, transforming powerboats became personal watercraft (i.e. jet skis) and Nintendo had itself a massively upgraded sequel to US only niche Game Boy title, Wave Race. Leon, Brian, Darren, Michiel and community contributors recall just what a splash Wave Race 64 made with its debut, and how Nintendo Software Technologies followed up with the GameCube launch title Wave Race: Blue Storm, a few years later.
Amazing video games podcast
These guys and girls are really awesome and really go in depth with what game they are covering.and they don’t interrupt each other and they let everyone have there say and they all flow naturally and the podcast never seems to bore me I wish them all the best.
A well rounded, informative video game podcast. Seemingly less concerned with the LOUD REACTIONS and almost hive-mind like opinions that proliferate the mainstream, the Cane & Rinse team present a professional and knowledgeable episode each and every time. Highly recommended.
Essential for those who love games
The deepest and most comprehensive game review/retrospective podcast I have yet encountered. The panelists always come armed with knowledge and experience to dive into the minutia of each game they discuss.
