    Star Raiders - Cane and Rinse No.619

    Star Raiders - Cane and Rinse No.619

    "Ahead of its time" is a barely adequate phrase with which to describe Star Raiders. Doug Neubauer's 1979 space combat simulator was a sensation at the time, and still manages to impress 45 years later. Leon, Chris O'Regan and Jesse activate shields and take on the might of the evil Zylon empire, before diving into the game's incredible legacy, including long-range scans of its various conversions, spin-offs and follow-ups.

    428: Shibuya Scramble - Cane and Rinse No.618

    428: Shibuya Scramble - Cane and Rinse No.618

    A visual novel about ten hours in Shibuya, Tokyo. Not much could possibly happen, right? Spike Chunsoft’s cult classic, originally released for the Nintendo Wii in 2008, would tell you differently.  Join Chris Worthington, Brian, Karl and Leah as they peel back the layers.

    Ghostbusters – Cane and Rinse No.617

    Ghostbusters – Cane and Rinse No.617

    The summer of 1984 and Activision lights a fire under Davd Crane's butt, giving him and his team six weeks to get a computer game out to ride the hype-wave of smash hit supernatural comedy movie, Ghostbusters. 40 years later, Leon, Chris O, Chris W, Jesse and community contributors fire up unlicensed nuclear accelerators and wave P.K.E. Meters at the C64 resulting software, as well as its many conversions to other formats.

    Loom - Cane and Rinse No.616

    Loom - Cane and Rinse No.616

    Lucasfilm Games teamed up with Infocom's visionary creative Brian Moriarty in 1990 for the fifth of the studio's SCUMM-based point and click adventures, the whimsical and musical Loom. Leon, Chis Worthington, Jesse (who selected this game as his pick for the Volume) and Ryan - along with contributions from the Cane and Rinse community - pick their way stitch-by-stitch through this unusual and accessible yarn.

    Pikmin 2 - Cane and Rinse No.615

    Pikmin 2 - Cane and Rinse No.615

    Somehow, nearly six years has passed since we covered the original Pikmin back in podcast issue 321. 20 years on from the sequel's original GameCube release in Japan, we get cosy with Pikmin 2. Leon, Brian, Chris O'Regan plus community contributors weigh in on Nintendo's much-expanded and divisive follow-up.

     A Plague Tale: Innocence – Cane and Rinse No.614

     A Plague Tale: Innocence – Cane and Rinse No.614

    A lovable set of siblings, a journey of hope, and a billion rats. Brian, James, Jon and Karl revisit A Plague Tale: Innocence to examine whether or not the story of Hugo and Amicia remains relevant. Come for the discussion, stay for the rat tornadoes.

Excellent gaming podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast for 5-6 years now, and the team still delivers! My teenage daughter has also started listening and she finds Leon very relaxing to listen to. As a host, Leon excels, and the rest of the team are great too; particularly Michiel, Chris, Jessie, Leah, Karl and occasional guest Ben. They’re always very passionate about the games they play… except for Rayman!

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.

Great… Most of the time

As with most ensemble podcasts some members of the team are better than others but that’s personal taste more than anything.

This is often a great show but I just can’t stand the sanctimonious left wing sjw drivel they break out into every now again. You’re reviewing video games ffs, does anyone care what about what a podcaster thinks about “problematic themes“ in a 20 year old video game ? I know I don’t.

Keep up the good work !
