The Free Cheese

We celebrate the 35th anniversary of Castlevania with some talking points around how to replay your favorite games and still keep them fresh. We let the Rot carry us deep into Kena: Bridge of Spirits and discuss (again) why PlayStation 2 is still the best of video games. Oh, and we're all playing Magic: The Gathering.

This week on The Free Cheese, delete your social media.

Our video game marketing discussion continues with a conversation surrounding how marketing instills a fear of not being part of the club and if we aren't there at launch, we missed something. We talk about where this can benefit us, like visiting Final Fantasy XV years after its release.

We also check out the newest set in Magic: The Gathering and the mechanics it brings to the game for the first time, while opening up more on card games and when it's fun to gamble in video games.

This week on The Free Cheese, heaven is a place on Earth.

We wonder when marketing goes too far and what we want in the lead to a new game release. We try to find the balance between leaks and corporate condescension as we prepare our guidelines for how to market your video game.

Ahead of new card game releases, we design our perfect trading card game and realize it's probably a board game. Finally, we go home.
