The Cane and Rinse podcast Vol. 7

Rez – Cane and Rinse No.303

“aren’t you afraid?”

Belatedly following on from issue 3 of the podcast(!) – in which we spoke to producer James Mielke about Child of Eden – we finally get around to taking a deep dive into that game’s synaesthesiac predecessor, Rez. Starting with the game’s initial release on Dreamcast and PS2 in 2001, Leon, Josh, Michiel and Tony chart each subsequent version right up to the recent, virtual reality-enabled Rez Infinite – which some of the panel have been lucky enough to experience. As usual of course we also share memories of Rez from members of the community, and Jay pops in to tell us about the evening he spent hanging out with creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi himself.

Music used in this issue:

1: Buggie Running Beeps 01 by Keiichi Sugiyama
2: Fear (Rez edit) by Adam Freeland

Cane and Rinse 303 was edited by Jay Taylor (@JaySevenZero).

  1. Why on earth does Josh keep calling the game “Rezzed”?

  2. Brain farts! Don’t worry – he has been admonished.

  3. Correction, you play as a hacker. The “you are a virus” thing comes from some Wikipedia vandalism that somehow stuck around for months.

  4. Yeah, didn’t think that sounded right!
