The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese, Cheetos and White Russians. Matt has accepted his new second job as he continues checking off quests in Destiny 2. Marc returns to the scene of the crime and sees what Leon Kennedy looks like after twenty years in Resident Evil 2. Joe practiced a bunch of combos and had someone show off gear for a real long while online in Injustice 2.

Metroid Prime 4 is restarting its development with Retro Studios at the helm. While the delay is saddening, we can't help but feel good about the news considering how it was delivered. Additionally, we discuss the continued life of The Master Chief Collection, talk about which Pokémon almost made it into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and tell you which game has an upcoming eSports tournament you won't want to miss.

We close things out with a question: Which dormant game franchise would you like to see taken on by another developer?

All that and plenty of stories about the things we see in traffic and at Target packed into this week's show.

This week on The Free Cheese, let us in the boardroom! With the Nintendo Direct on its way tomorrow again, we've been playing games to keep us distracted. Marc demonstrates his excitement for a Capcom release later this month while Matt does a bit more of the same and Joe slips back into his own fate.

We talk about why Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice won't have multiplayer, which comic book franchise is coming to Spider-Man, and hear about those keyboards designed to work with Xbox.

We close the show with the news that Bungie has secured Destiny publishing rights from Activision and we speculate what the break will bring in the future.

This week on The Free Cheese, the new year takes us back and then forward. Marc tries to find the rest of the orbs with his little buddy. Matt gets cold going for the gold—the real gold. Joe covers the world in icing while dancing in the moonlight.

We talk about which new Capcom game is coming out next January, what to do in a thirty-minute demo, and try to figure out how we missed the news we were all waiting for.

After the break, the world comes alive as we recapitulate the predictions we made one year ago and settle in to announce what we believe is coming over the course of the following twelve months.
