The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese, we need to find the car keys.

Stranded on a strange planet, we take control of three lost adventurers and a fleet of tiny creatures to discover cell phones, trash, and delicious fruit. We revisit Pikmin 3 for the Wii U, talk about how it's changed on Nintendo Switch, and of course, rank it with the rest of the games this season.

This week on The Free Cheese, there goes another customer.

We explore a sequel to an arcade classic in Paperboy 2. Within, we discover ghosts, break windows, and trap strangers beneath cars. We also compare the multiple versions of the game and of course rank it against the rest of the games from this season.

This week on The Free Cheese, he's on fire.

Right alongside the NBA Finals, we're checking in with an arcade classic that made its way home across a number of platforms. A sequel to NBA Jam and a bonafide hit in its own right, NBA Hangtime let us continue the 2-on-2 arcade basketball that we first fell in love with in Jam.

This week on The Free Cheese, an event has started in Dogenzaka.

When all that remains of Japan's metropolis are its buildings and wild animals, everyone is just trying to survive. As we play Tokyo Jungle, we're also celebrating the class of games that you could only find on PlayStation Network in the PS3 era. We look for other games that try something similar (there aren't many) and discuss how the developers took an unconventional approach to building this game.
