    Super Mario Maker series – Cane and Rinse No.426

    “Coo coo. (I hear you’ve been busy, Mario.)”





    Create or Play? That is the big question asked of anyone who starts a game in the Super Mario Maker series. Join Michiel, Brian, Darren and Ryan as they ponder its significance, go over the history of the Mario level editor phenomenon and attempt to put in words what they personally get out of the 2015 Wii U release, its 2016 3DS port and its 2019 Switch sequel.

    Missile Command – Cane and Rinse No.425

    Missile Command – Cane and Rinse No.425

    “The End”





    It’s been fully four decades since Dave Theurer turned his apocalyptic nightmares into an arcade game. Missile Command told a darker story than most games of the time, and thanks to its compelling, though unwinnable, gameplay, has stood the test of time as a high score competition stalwart. Leon, Jesse, Michiel, guest Dan Clark and Cane and Rinse community members recall their own fears of Armageddon and their ill-fated mission to keep the incoming nukes at bay.

    Shovel Knight DLC – Cane and Rinse No.424

    “You don’t need a potion to win me over! You already have!”





    Steel thy shovel….. again! We’ve discussed Yacht Club Games’s Shovel Knight before, but there’s much more to this pixelated platformer than the original campaign. Mixing potions? Reaping souls? Getting really good at a collectible card game? We’ve got you covered. Join Leah, Jon and Josh as they explore these activities and many more in Shovel Knight’s DLC campaigns: Plague of Shadows, Specter of Torment and King of Cards.

    Console Special No.8 – Super Nintendo Entertainment System

    Console Special No.8 – Super Nintendo Entertainment System

    Everything about our latest single format special podcast is just super. Leon, Brian, Michiel and returning guest Ben Cartlidge - along with a slew of contributors from the Cane and Rinse community - remember Nintendo's initially reluctant but ultimately triumphant foray into the 16-bit market. The Super Famicom/SNES/SNEZ/Ess-Enn-Ee-Ess boasts perhaps one of the most glittering libraries of any machine, and in this show we get to take a long, lingering look back at its many successes (and a few failures) as a machine, and as a platform.

    Batman: Arkham Knight – Cane and Rinse No.423

    “How many more bones would you crush? How many lives will you destroy in pursuit of what you call justice?” 





    Concluding our Batman: Arkham series coverage (which stretches back many years) we arrive at – so far – Rocksteady’s final game featuring the Caped Crusader. Leon, Brian, James and Thomas discuss 2015’s Batman: Arkham Knight, including what it means to play as the bat in 2020, the inclusion of a playable Batmobile and whether or not we feel that the developers over-egged the pudding with this epic finale. A gang of streetwise hoodlums from the Cane and Rinse community also offer their opinions and Three Word Reviews.

    Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon / Ritual of the Night – Cane and Rinse No.422

    Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon / Ritual of the Night – Cane and Rinse No.422

    “Through recondite arts, the Alchemists had created Shardbinders.”





    The fruits of substantial crowdfunding and the labour of a supergroup of game devs were harvested in 2019 with the release of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The spiritual successor to the original ‘IGAvania’, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night arrived to relieved fans and some critical acclaim, along with its stretch goal pseudo 8-bit appetiser, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. Leon, Brian, Jon and Leah have all completed both titles and are keen to talk about them, assisted brilliantly as usual by members of the Cane and Rinse community.

The greatest video game discussion podcast

Been listening for years. Re listen to my favorites frequently. Keep up the great work

Incredibly and Naturally Enjoyable

I am new to this podcast. I have heard of it in the past from some cross-pollination with Bonfireside Chat and it has been on my “to listen” pile for a long time. Boy do I regret not listening sooner! This podcast is incredibly enjoyable. The games discussion is always light yet substantial. It is very relaxing and an overall great time. There tends to be a nice variety in viewpoints about the game covered and in the end the hosts try to be as positive as they can be. The huge variety in games covered is a plus as well. I plan to be a listener for a long while now. A very strong recommendation. Wishing everyone who provides the show the best.

All Killer No Filler - Best Gaming Podcast

I’ve been a listener for years (not sure why it’s taken me so long to write a review) and Cane & Rinse has been my favorite gaming podcast (maybe favorite podcast full stop) since listening to the first episode.
There are several episodes I’ve listened to multiple times, which cannot be said about other podcasts.
They cover games from all angles, the hosts are interesting, knowledgeable, and funny without veering into the “whacky morning DJ” neighborhood.
It’s just a great, genuine podcast made by great, genuine people.
I’d rate higher than 5 starts if I could.
