  1. This was a great episode guys, well done.

    I have just started going through and listening to a bunch of sound of plays as I get things done at the office, and was so pleasantly surprised to hear an original fable track on here!

    Aside from being a terrific game, the original Fable had a very strong soundtrack. Every song feels chillingly appropriate for its place in the game and really feels very emotional for me to hear the song from the Temple of Avo again.

    I also found it funny in that game that the sole purpose of the church was to donate money. The franchise certainly isn’t shy from political commentary. If I remember correctly there’s a bit in the second game where you help the twin brothers who rose the dead where they talk about “how silly it is to believe the teachings of a thousands of years old book”

    Anyways great job guys!

  2. Thanks for taking the time to post such kind feedback, Colin.

  3. My Pleasure Leon,

    Cane and Rinse is by far the best gaming podcast I have ever Listened to.

    Its so well constructed, very thoughtful and articulated while at the same time very fun to listen to!

    I also hold you guys and the gentleman who do “prepare to try” on IGN UK responsible for making me a die hard “souls/borne” fan. So thank you for that.

    I live in the states too so a podcast is always ready for me before I get to work Monday morning.

    Your guys work is unparalleled and I appreciate the time and care you put in it.

  4. I’ve passed this onto the team, thank you so much!

  5. Hey Colin,

    Thanks for the feedback man, we love to hear that our efforts are appreciated! And to reiterate Leon’s comment, thanks for taking the time to leave us this message.

  6. Hey no problem Jay, thank you guys for responding to my comments too!

    I gotta say one of my favorite things I learned in the podcasts was finding out that your wife did some music for Little Big Planet. Get it Together is a great catchy track as well! That’s pretty special to be involved in a big Sony project like that! Little Big Planet is very much a game that reflects how creative the game and gamer can be at the same time too so the art style and music is immensely important. I would make an obligatory “floaty” comment as well but I think you guys nailed that one.

  7. Cool, I’ll let her know what you wrote! 馃檪
