The Cane and Rinse podcast Vol. 1

Heavenly Sword / Enslaved – Cane and Rinse No.7

The gloves are off this week as no fewer than five panellists tear it up over Ninja Theory’s passion-inspiring pair. Hosts Leon and Tony are joined by regular contributor Darren Forman as well as Cane and Rinse debutants Paul Rooney (Ready-Up) and Gary Blower (Gameburst) to reconsider the merits and drawbacks of this striking duo of titles and why they have bought almost twenty copies between them.

  1. I have to agree with Leon with regards to Trip, I think its more of Stockholm syndrome. I found her a very unlikeable character and even though she develops throughout the story… I do think it is a classic case of Stockholm syndrome.

    She enslaves Monkey in the beginning not with thoughts of becoming friends….but becuase she needs him to survive regardless of how he feels about it.

    I think this is one of those stories that was maybe meant to divide the gamers thoughts on the matter. Which is the case of a good story, that it is able to come up with different facets of a story arc.

    Myself….if I were monkey…I whack her the min her back was turned.lol

  2. Has there been a more Marmite developer than Ninja Theory? It seems that mentioning their name evokes quite a reaction be it favourable or otherwise.

    I loved Enslaved from the moment I tried the demo. I never bother to earn 100% of a games achievements but I did with Enslaved. Great graphics, sound and story & much of the dialogue is genuinely hilarous. The combat is perhaps a little easy (even for an idiot like myself) but I loved it all the same. DLC was excellent too.

    I bought Heavenly Sword for a family member who has played it sporadically over the last 12 months but loves the game.

    Cheers.
