The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast, Joe sits down with Marc and Kyle to discuss MAGfest and Nintendo's new console. Marc continues on his quest to complete the Kid Icarus games. Kyle professes his love for breakfast foods and his current disdain for his 3DS. Joe struggles to keep interest in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire but lets Mother 3 consume his life. 

We try to find a game for Kyle to enjoy on his 3DS and we come together to play EarthBound for our February Game Club.

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

Joe, Kyle, Marc, and newcomer Troy sit down to recap last week's Nintendo Direct after we lost part of our recording from episode 104. We discuss the death of Club Nintendo and share our hopes for what replaces it. We talk about the disappointment of Civilization: Beyond Earth and the fun of Nidhogg. We give some early impressions on the new EarthBound-inspired RPG Citizens of Earth and cave in to an uncaring Nintendo of America to enjoy Mother 3 on our own terms. Finally, we discuss the state of Pokemon and what we would do to fix the game and make it more palpable for those of us who have grown tired of the formula.

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

Joe and Marc are joined by new best friend Mike DeMarco to talk about Destiny, Kid Icarus, and Metroid among other things. We spend some time discussing the faults of the Halo 5 Beta, the joys of inexpensive eShop titles, and why Tetris Ultimate could ultimately be a little bit better. We learn about Mike's relationship with the brotherly band Hanson, why Marc didn't hate being sick, and how Joe was disappointed in Nintendo. 
We also lose half of what we recorded this week, including everything after we cut for break. We get through what we have been playing but we lost our most anticipated games of 2015 and our reactions to the latest Nintendo Direct. We'll try to recycle some of it on next week's show, but enjoy what we still have!

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

We look back at our predictions for 2014 to see how well we guessed, and then we make some new predictions for 2015. Joe, Kyle, and Dan read last year's predictions from members of The Free Cheese and tally up the scores, then follow up by sharing a bit of the plans and ideas for The Free Cheese in 2015. After a break, we share our predictions for the year, including new Metroid and Pokemon games, Steambox predictions, and a lot more. We also read the predictions of our friends who couldn't be here to record, and we hope for a great 2015 in video games.

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

We decide on our choices for game of the year. Through heavy debate, oration, or in some cases the toss of a coin we voted on the best games of the year across multiple categories. Joe, Marc, Sandeep, and Kyle spend a few hours talking about the best console, soundtrack, developer, story, and of course the best game of 2014. We each stated our choice for the category in question and then had a few minutes to state our case for why we chose it, in hopes to convince the others to change their vote. 2014 was a great year for games, and we hope that we recognized the ones that deserved it most.
