The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese, it ain’t no soup. We celebrate the fifth anniversary of the website with stories and anecdotes from our adventures over half a decade together. We talk about some of the stuff you might remember, and moments that happened behind the scenes.

We’ve all got Red Dead fever and share our thoughts surrounding the opening to Rockstar’s latest release. Marc wraps up Lara Croft GO while Matt starts Metro 2033 and Ben doesn’t create characters in Soul Calibur VI. We also hear about Hello Neighbor, DayZ, and more Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII. Then, Joe tells us about his return to Destiny 2, at long last.

We continue to conversation around crunch in video game development and lament the existence of leaks. Then we share news about a few unfortunate delays and reveal the addition of a fan-favorite character to our new favorite fighting game. 

Thank you all for hanging out with us, whether you’ve followed us from the start or you’re just joining us today.

This week on The Free Cheese, we complete a scavenger hunt. Marc and Joe discuss recent adventures away from the podcast and talk a lot about the Analogue Mega Sg. Marc dives deeper into the catalogue of Rare's history while Joe goes back to a franchise he hasn't touched in a decade.

We talk about 100-hour work weeks, what to do in Pokémon Let's Go, and another delay to a PS4 exclusive.

This week on The Free Cheese, we try grandma’s gravy. As all video game podcasts go, we start things off yelling about soup again and designing marriage certificates. Then, Ben takes us into the world of The Forest one last time as he sees it through to the end. Matt makes a lot of money on Steam and spends his time becoming a part of something special with the CS: GO community. Joe is starting to “get” Overwatch and wanders the depths of The Binding of Isaac while Marc changes his Xbox avatar and counts down the days until Red Dead Redemption 2.

We talk about the fourth generation of Pokémon inside of our phones, the future of video games, and what Matt is changing his PSN name to.

This week on The Free Cheese, we find out what really happens at the circus. Marc helps us to remember all of the details from Resident Evil 4 and checks in with the latest in the Halo: Combat Evolved cooperative adventure. Ben learns how to read and uncovers so much more than what the surface offers in The Forest. Joe watches the seasons change and uncovers what's new in Forza Horizon 4.

We talk about PSN name changes, new Nintendo Switch revisions, the future of Capcom movies, and we celebrate the anniversary of a lifetime.

This week on The Free Cheese, now available with Spooky Vision. We're fresh into what the world would definitively state is the best month of the year and with it we've brought the fright into the night. Or, we talk about stupid energy drinks and koffee for a while and also some video games.

Ben explores the great outdoors and the terrors that await below in the full release of The Forest. Matt climbs behind the wheel of the car again to see where he stacks in ranked mode of Rocket League. Joe samples a few games for a little while and remembers what's great about Let It Die now that it's on PC.

We also talk about Ring of Elysium and how it stands out in a sea of battle royale games. We find out if Sony is truly ready to play ball with the competition. Then, we speculate what might get announced at X018 and give you the inside scoop behind the absence of PSX this year.
