This week on The Free Cheese: we drink the elixir.

Joe and Marc gather around the podcast table to talk about Super Mario Run and how Nintendo's fair plumber is doing on his first outing on our phones.

We also talk about the new game from Grasshopper Manufacture, Let It Die, and how rad this unexpected game turned out to be.

We play a little more Final Fantasy XV, but not enough to find our own Chocobo. 

Finally, we talk about which games we'd like to see get remastered or remade entirely before teasing our game of the year content.

We also talk about Overcooked, Need for Speed, and Superhot as we run through some of our end of the year roundups.

We talk about what we would do if we could make our own Marvel vs. Capcom game with other companies and our thoughts on Nintendo's recent late night appearance.

Finally, we share our choices for a holiday buyer's guide, suggesting games for each platform.
