The Wonderful 101
Cane and Rinse Vol. 11

The Wonderful 101 – Cane and Rinse No.515

“Who are you calling sweaty!?”

Why settle for controlling just a single solitary hero when you can wrangle a supergroup of 100? The Wonderful 101 is PlatinumGames’ answer to the question that possibly no-one was asking. Leon, Brian, Josh, Michiel and community correspondents bust out their Wii U GamePads one more time to wrap their tongues and thumbs around combos, launchers, Unite Morphs and Unite Mixes in this deceptively deep cartoon action game.

 

Music featured in this issue:

    Can I ask why Josh keeps participating in the games that he doesn’t like? I’m just incredibly frustrated how in dozens of episodes he’ll be one of the members of the podcast to play a game that he knew ahead of time he was unlikely to like and he goes on to be a wet blanket during the podcast, bringing everything down with his nitpicks and pet peeves and derails the whole mood.

  2. Hey, Specter. Sorry that Our Josh harshed your buzz on this one, but here’s the thing about that: We absolutely don’t always know whether or not everyone on the panel will like a game or not when we put the schedule together, that’s the most important thing to note. People put themselves forward for games they are interested in playing, not necessarily ones that they already know that they are going to be positive about. Besides, Leon’s qualms about W101 were aligned quite closely to Josh’s issues with the game.

    Secondly, the one criticism we get more than any other about the format of the Cane and Rinse podcast is that we have too many shows where everyone agrees with one another. You can’t please all of the people all of the time, as the old saying goes. What are the chances that you’ll always agree with everyone about any game? Pretty slim we’d suggest. Michiel was utterly effusive in his praise for The Wonderful 101, giving it a place on his epic shelf. So if you aligned with him, that’s cool, right?
