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.
A Short Hike – Cane and Rinse No.550
So we arrive at the conclusion of yet another mighty Volume of the Cane and Rinse videogames discussion podcast. In a change to our originally scheduled programme, we decided to give ourselves an easier time at the close of the year by taking on A Short Hike. Leon, James, Josh, Leah and community correspondents help Claire in her mission to the top of the Hawk Peak Trail, and although her main mission is to latch on to a mobile signal, the real story is the friends we made along the way.
Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne – Cane and Rinse No.549
Just another day at the end of the world, chatting up demons, eating magic worms, and exploring labyrinths…..so many labyrinths. Join Brian, Leah, and Rich as they explore the apocalypse with the first game in Atlus’ long-running SMT series: Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne.
Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse – Cane and Rinse No.548
Whether it's the third, fifth, sixth or even seventh instalment in the series, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (Akumajo Densetsu) was the epic culmination of its Famicom/NES trilogy. Leon, Jon, Michiel and returning guest Ben Cartlidge of One Credit Classics thrash out what it takes to beat this notoriously challenging 8-bit instalment with one or more characters, plus we have memories and opinions from the community to share.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales – Cane and Rinse No.547
A shiny, new Spider-Man for a shiny, new console. Two years after his mentor thwipped onto the scene, demolishing PlayStation sales records, and sparking a new Marvel Games era, it’s time for Miles Morales to step into the limelight. Will the young protegé swing into our hearts or feel the sting of a tabloid bludgeon? Join James, Ryan and Tom as they wrap up warm for a wintry trip to Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Astrobot: Rescue Mission / Astro’s Playroom – Cane and Rinse No.546
From Playroom to the PS5, it's time to talk about Astrobot. Join Jesse, Karl, and Brian as they navigate virtual reality and the PS5 to discuss Astrobot: Rescue Mission and Astro's Playroom. Does Sony have a mascot in the making? Let's discuss.
Nintendo Land – Cane and Rinse No.545
The park is open! Ryan, Michiel and Jesse have their tickets to Nintendo Land, the Wii U's bundled-in launch title, and all of its charming minigames. As Nintendo's first step into a console generation that would prove to be more challenging for the company than the immensely successful Wii generation it was exiting, was this game a distillation of Wii-generation magic or the first harbinger of the Wii U's ultimate fate?
Phenomenal long form video game insight
As an adult, I am lucky to finish 2 games a year but whenever I do I check to see if that game has a Cane and Rinse episode. The discussion is insightful, thorough and entertaining. Often when I am struggling to pick my next game, I look at my unplayed episodes for inspiration. Even episodes on games I have no interest in playing are a joy to listen to such is the high quality of the show.
Simply the best
Straight to the point yet incredibly in depth. The Cane and Rinse podcast is my favourite gaming podcast ever. Professionally produced and created to such a high standard you can easily listen to the latest episode or listen in to an episode from 2014 and it all sounds crisp and uniformed. The host and guests are both educated in the field of gaming as well as pure gaming fans which leads to an incredibly interesting show every time. My favourite shows are the console episodes that really get my nostalgia flowing through my veins. Great show guys and gals. Love it
