The Free Cheese
This week on The Free Cheese, we live by the curse of the moon. After a day drinking in the sun and five and a half years of podcasting, we gather to catch up on the week's video games yet again. Marc spent some time piloting Orbital Frames in Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS, Ben is almost in Hell as he continues to look at how good DOOM looks on his PC, Matt plays more DOTA 2 in order to collect the card packs for The International, and Joe begins the descent into flipper fever with The Pinball Arcade yet again. We've got a lot to say about Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon as we've all spent some time with it since its launch this week. Any worry we had about whether or not someone else could still make a Castlevania game has vanished as quickly as the sun come nightfall. Finally, we talk about the next generation of PlayStation and how console gaming will likely differ in the next generation. We discuss cloud-based gaming on Nintendo Switch and what we expect from Battlefield V. Then, we weigh in on a little rumor about a potential port (it's not a port(or is it?)) of one of our favorite games. The Free Cheese Opening Theme is “The Origin” by Legna Zeg.
