Resident Evil 5 - Cane and Rinse 341

“You’re merely postponing the inevitable!”

For the eighth of our ten podcasts on the mainline Resident Evil games, we return to Kijuju for potentially the most controversial and divisive entry in the series. Leon, Charlotte, Jacob and Michiel decide whether or not Resident Evil 5 retained enough of its mighty predecessor’s DNA to stay relevant, or if – Uroboros like – the franchise was starting to eat its own tail as a ‘me-too’ Gears of War type affair. The panel and our contributors also discuss the thorny issue of the game’s African setting and accompanying imagery.

Music used in this issue:

1. Item Box by Kota Suzuki
2. Gigantic Attack by Kota Suzuki

Cane and Rinse 341 was edited by Jay Taylor.

Each issue of The Cane and Rinse podcast is available a week early through our Patreon for just $1 a month

For a quick laugh, compare and contrast with this atrocious rip-off feat. NotChris and a shamelessly random "Claire" skin swap:

Good podcast, I enjoyed this one a lot.

I’m fairly certain I played this through once, when it came out, in co-op and enjoyed it quite a lot - as everyone eluded too on the podcast.

I can’t remember feeling like it was potentially racist but looking back at it, it is cutting it rather fine.

I don’t think I ever played the Mercenaries mode on the main version, although I did spend some time with the 3DS version which was just the Mercenaries mode put into a cartridge and sold as a fully fledged game on the 3DS.
