The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese, keep yourself wet.

After a week playing through two games that divided their audiences, we have some feelings about making your own opinions and approaching content with an open mind.

We talk about Microsoft saying goodbye to Mixer, a new sequel to Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, and how rollback netcode is being implemented into a nineteen year old game.

This week on The Free Cheese, it’s time to talk about the future of video games.

We are in the wake of the PlayStation 5 event from the week and talk about what we saw, what we’re excited about, and what we still want to see more of next.

We also talk about the Destiny announcements from this week and where we both fall in with the future of Destiny.

Matt has completed Witcher 3 and found himself hopping into micro sessions with some of the newly acquired games from the massive itch.io bundle, while the updates to Call of Duty: Warzone set the path for the next season in the game. Joe played halfway through The Messenger before finding himself stageside at a Hatsune Miku concert and taking on a giant statue in a mech in Phantasy Star Online 2.
