Asura's Wrath
The Cane and Rinse podcast Vol. 2

Asura’s Wrath – Cane and Rinse No.53

“Stop praying. This is pathetic.”

Asura’s Wrath doesn’t so much defy description as demand a lengthy one: The game, produced by CyberConnect2 (best known for the .hack and Naruto series’ as well as Solatorobo on the DS and Silent Bomber on the original PlayStation), is a pseudo-episodic Hindu/Buddhist cosmology and anime inspired revenge romp comprising of arena brawler, on-rails shooter and extended QTE sections! Leon, Tony, Darren Forman and James Carter max out their synchronic rate and burst furiously into action.

  1. I’d just like to point out that I do know that Yoshinori Ono is “the Street Fighter guy” and not Shinji Ono, who is a footballer [embarrassed giggle]! Still, it proves I’m not just reading from a script, right?

  2. Just listening to this one, I would also like to add to the pronounciation difficulties by saying that Asura is by origin a Sanskrit word and is pronounced something like “Ah-zurr” in modern Hindi. 🙂
