The Free Cheese
Save this episode This week on The Free Cheese: We survived E3, maybe... During the aftermath of the annual video game show, we recall our predictions and see who was the worst at guessing what would happen. We also give some more thought to what we watched unfold from Microsoft, PlayStation, and Nintendo over the last few days. Marc played a lot of Friday the 13th, learning how to become Jason's mom and work with his friends to steal a car. Matt doesn't like Mass Effect: Andromeda, but he's determined to finish it so that he can dive into Prey. Joe got the itch for more Final Fantasy and has been dancing to the beat with Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call while he waits for Lightning Returns to arrive.

Save this episode Nintendo detailed some plans for 2017 and beyond in its Spotlight presentation earlier today and we're pretty excited with what was shown. Super Mario Odyssey looks like a weird 3D Mario game that we've been waiting for, while the expansion for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild seems to bring new life into the game after we've moved forward from it. The announcement of Rocket League coming to Nintendo Switch has Matt throwing his credit card once again as Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle had before. Finally, we got a taste into the further future with peeks at gameplay for both Kirby and Yoshi and Nintendo stopped our hearts with a single Metroid Prime 4 logo.

Save this episode The Year of Dreams becomes the Year of Realities as PlayStation showcases seventeen experiences for E3 2017. We gather after the showcase to discuss Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Horizon: Zero Dawn The Frozen Wilds, along with some of the other games coming to PlayStation in 2017. Additionally, we look with PlayStation at what is coming in 2018, and how a lot of the press conference detailed what we can expect in the first half of 2018. We walked away feeling pretty good about what was shown off, but we argue a bit about whether or not we were truly impressed with the show.
