The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese, yeah! We're all together again to talk about video games—and to slowly incite riots around the table. Between yelling about which games are or are not good, we find one thing we can all agree on. Marc returns to a mobile camp he can carry in his pocket but spends a while going on adventures with Pikachu. Matt gets lost in the open fields and forests as he tries to narrow down his choice for the best video game this year. Ben takes a break from getting harassed on the internet to see if he can find a hammer. Joe transcends earth again only to find himself on a racetrack in Miami.

We talk about the triumphant return of Tomagotchi, the potential of a new disc drive-less Xbox One console, unchanging Rainbow Six Siege, adding new characters to Mario Tennis Aces, and more before we spiral into madness.

This week on The Free Cheese, where is Jack Tretton's money? Matt returns from his bedridden nightmares with tales of falling blocks, jumping girls, and cowboy criminals. Ben updates us on his spreadsheet of science documenting online fighting taunts while hanging out with death metal. Joe continues his journey to enlightenment but takes a detour into a reimagined world of pocket monsters.

We discuss the next series from Castlevania producer, when to expect PUBG on PS4, and why PlayStation doesn't need E3 2019. All this, a pitch for a Jack Tretton video game, and more on this episode.

This week on The Free Cheese, the fine makers of jelly bring you "horseradish." In between his adventures on the road, Marc grows his ever-expansive family of characters in Diablo III. Despite being the victim of what many would argue is unwarranted taunting, Ben still loves SoulCalibur VI. Joe sinks deeper into the comfort of vacation and loses a day to everything Destiny 2 can throw at him.

We also talk at length about the magic that is Tetris, and how its newest iteration takes the series somewhere incredibly personal and transforms what we understand of the classic game.

Finally, we hear about the future of Final Fantasy and which series Activision blames for its shortcomings. We recap the X018 event from Microsoft and speculate on what's next for Xbox. Then, we outline Geoff Keighly's Game Awards for you.

This week on The Free Cheese, it’s a hash brown vacation. After last week’s reminiscing, we talk about the future of The Free Cheese with an overview of changes to the site and tease some secrets. Marc plays a bit of SoulCalibur VI while Joe finds himself back into Destiny 2. We both finished Halo: Combat Evolved and began the nightmare that is Halo 2 on Legendary. We also embarked on our portable adventure through Diablo III: The Eternal Collection.

We recap the latest and last Super Smash Bros. Ultimate focused Nintendo Direct, discuss changes to Rainbow Six Siege, and share news from Blizzcon. We also tell you which games should’ve been on the upcoming PlayStation Classic.
