The Free Cheese

Joe discovers the magnificent world of Steam just in time for the Holiday sale and just in time for everyone else in the world to see his Steam wallet information... James bought and finished Wolfenstein: The New Order in less time than it took for Joe to install Windows 10 on his computer. Marc draws the year to a close by finally experiencing Phantasy Star Online 2, even if it's a backwards nightmare to make work in America.

We also discuss some of the games we are looking most forward to in 2016 and why those games are called Cuphead. We tell you which games you should buy before they aren't on sale any longer and how to build a PC from scratch!

This is the one we've been waiting to record for a whole year.

We came together to talk about the best games that were released in the year 2015 and decide as a team which would earn the spot at the top of our list.

Listen as Joe, Marc, Mike, James, and Jeff share their individual top five lists and why each game deserves some discussion as Game of the Year.

Finally, we tally up the votes for each game and crown one title victorious and The Free Cheese's 2015 Game of the Year.

Let's slow down this week and listen just a little bit to 2015. 

As we wrap up the year and begin to discuss the best games of 2015, Joe sits down to give you a taste of the best music in video games of 2015.

Hear selections from Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, Super Mario Maker, Batman: Arkham Knight, and more in this special episode dedicated to the subtleties that make our games that much better.

On the latest episode of our thrilling podcast, we discuss slumber party movies and legitimate uses of chloroform. 

Joe, James, and Mike gather to talk about why someone would comb the ocean floors in Fallout 4 or what the PlayStation VR will cost. We share our thoughts on the final Super Smash Bros. presentation and what to make of a new controller patent from Nintendo.

We're not too surprised to hear about Kojima's partnership with Sony but we're pretty stoked for him and even more curious about what is happening with Konami.

Finally, we argue about the validity of Picross and get ready for game of the year discussions.

We travel through time and realize that nothing we thought would happen at PSX actually happened.

Joe, James, and Mike discuss the floundering of Lara Croft and how vapid Battlefront truly is. We talk about what its like to wander aimlessly through the wastelands of Boston and the glorious feeling of defeating a giant spider and all of its sixteen babies.

Join us as we prepare for our game of the year discussions and tell you how you can be involved, and find out which console you should buy this holiday season.
