Re: The Cane and Rinse podcast Volume 9 (2020)

Interesting response Jay. Seems like a decent approach. I always think that >=3 years is a good window, as it allows reflecting on a game and its peers in a more detected way. Also, I think there is a large proportion of gamers who play games late and they have different opinions to those in the zei...

Re: 433: Rayman

Got this as a 8 year old, thinking it was suitable. It might be a great game, but it was too hard and I experienced very little of it.

Re: 404: Assassin's Creed Origins

Ok Jay I'll keep it short! Visiting the sights of ancient Egypt is thrilling and the world building is great. But AC is best for me in cities, exploring buildings, running across rooftops, stalking targets and infiltrating bases. I don't feel the combat and traversal lend themselves to traipsing thr...

Re: 402: God of War (2018) *recording the week ending 19th Jan.*

The word that comes to mind for God of War is ‘ chunky’ . Everything in this game has weight and heft. You feel the inertia of Kratos’ mass before he moves, sense the impact of his many, many axe throws. When they finally appear even the Blades of Chaos seem to carve the flesh of enemies, rather th...

Re: 402: God of War (2018) *recording the week ending 19th Jan.*

The Limited open world works for me! I was surprised to love this. The game is not massive open world, but hub and spoke or connected linear paths. I like this limitation, the open world feels very curated; enabling the design of well built and thrilling levels with paced combat, puzzling and story....

Re: Well Twitter has been interesting today hasn't it.

I’ve been listening to the pod for years because of the balance you bring to the games you review, and the lack of ‘dude-bro’ culture that turns me off so many other gaming sites. Agreed, It's a bit of a generalisation (and things have changed a lot in recent years) but videogame media has tended t...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Too late for this year but I'd add Trackmania Turbo to the long list. It's a series with a very dedicated community. I've mainly played the criminally underrated local multilayer hotseat mode but the single player challenges are compelling too. And the community made track are something else Re-upp...

Re: October 2019 monthly

Hey @Jay. I get the Speke scrambler bikes (I'm near South parkway). Although I hear the anfield / bootle scrambler bike groups are way worse. I'm based in Old Swan, but I've noticed there's been a police car presence over the last few weeks so I'm thinking they're there as a deterrent to those litt...

Not sure if need to repost from old thread before 1 podcast became 2 The core gameplay is compelling... for a while. Each base is a self contained puzzle with multiple strategies. Stealth and non-lethality is encouraged with the carrot not the stick; fultoning enemies to build up your strength is m...

Have you tried Castbox? That's the podcast app I've always used for it.
Just did, only 2 episodes from 2017 :(

I put in a support request with patreon

You live in Liverpool too? Cool! Don't suppose you know if there are any retro game store anywhere in or around the city do you? I heard Retro Dojo was good but that has since gone the way of the dinosaur and there doesn't appear to be anywhere that deals in anything much older than last gen (looki...
