The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

 

We get really excited about Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice. Well, one of us does. 

Marc plays a little bit of The Escapists and a lot a bit of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. 

Joe tries to play this month's pick for The Free Cheese Game Club, but ends up playing a lot of Rocket League instead. 

We also talk about how much fun Splatoon is and the new content coming up next week for the game, in addition to new content coming to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (hopefully) this Friday. We ask the question that everyone has been asking, "Where is Bomberman and why isn't he in Super Smash Bros.?"

Don't forget to check out AmiiboHunt on the App Store if you're stuck driving from store to store in hopes of finding that rare amiibo. Our good friend developed this app so that we don't have to waste time anymore and we can see what is in stock before starting the car.

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

We talk more about Batman: Arkham Knight. Joe finally reviews the game and the newly released DLC, "A Matter of Family." We take a break from the Batman chatter to go a bit deeper into EarthBound Beginnings and explore the insides of Shigesato Itoi's mind.

Marc returns to the basics and enjoys some Super Smash Bros. for his birthday, and tells us a bit about his trip to New York where he visited the Nintendo World Store. 

This week, Marc asks the question, "Why do we play video games?" We try to get to the root of the question and discover what draws us to play video games over something else and where we see ourselves with games in the years to follow.

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

We remember Satoru Iwata.

We went to the arcade and played some of gaming's greatest games, and we fill in the week with our usual Super Smash Bros. sessions.

Joe explores a bit more of EarthBound Beginnings, slowly begins to understand Splatoon, and continues to wonder why Warner Bros. hates Arkham Knight.

This podcast, our passion for video games, and everything that we do on The Free Cheese would not be what it is without the contributions to the industry made by Satoru Iwata. He will be greatly missed.

Thank you Satoru Iwata.

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

Joe and Marc are joined by a very special guest, Joe's nephew Jake, to talk all about Rocket League. Since we last met, Marc wakes up inside of the Wii U eShop to find himself inside the world of F-Zero. Jake rides elephants and blows stuff up in Far Cry 4, and Joe really doesn't like #DRIVECLUB.

The common thread in this week's show is our love for the recently released Rocket League. We had known about the game for some time, but its debut this week has us hooked. We've already completed (and were crowned champions of) our first season, and we're trying to learn how to make cars fly.

We also discuss the best games from this year so far, as well as this month's pick for our monthly game club.

This week on The Free Cheese Podcast:

Marc makes a serious investment but still can't paint the world. Kyle is annoyed with the recording schedule. Joe still loves Arkham Knight, even after the grueling endgame.

We determine which cheese is the best cheese, although Kyle is still wrong. 

We discuss the difficulty of reviewing a game based on something you love, and then we talk about comic books and comic book movies for a while as a little bonus at the end.
