The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese, April fools!

We approach the end of our Game of the Game of the Year list with another title added. We talk about when gameplay from spin-offs finds its way back into the mainline series and then share stories about when box art led us astray or led us to play.

This week on The Free Cheese, preparing for the hurt.

Konami?

Just ahead of Metroid Dread we talk about playing through classic games with modern conventions and contemplate when that goes too far. We share the least requested characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and figure out what gets us in the mood for the respective games we're playing.

This week on The Free Cheese, ruining birthday parties since 1996.

We make some new changes to our Game of the Game of the Year list and reminisce on another from the best in 2016. We talk about revisiting PlayStation games in new ways and how the right combination of mechanics and systems can create an endless gameplay loop.

We make our final predictions for a new Super Smash Bros. fighter and lament the end of a long journey through one developer's library.
