The Free Cheese

This week on The Free Cheese, we talk about movies for a while.

Matt spent some time fixing a PC this week so we could all play Sea of Thieves. Marc looked into the goggles again to take Astro Bot on a little adventure. Joe found a team of Sonic characters to go racing with in the latest in the series of Sonic kart racing games.

We talk about what Jack Tretton has to say about PlayStation 5, how long the Xbox E3 Briefing is expected to run, DC Universe Online coming to Switch, and how you can watch Pirates of the Caribbean on Twitch.

This week on The Free Cheese, the waffles might be burning. We induct another game into The Free Cheese Hall of Fame, bringing our total to three.

We also talk about Sony and Microsoft's partnership in the cloud and what it probably actually means. We find out what The Video Game History Foundation is doing at Game Informer. Additionally, we get the latest details on Treyarch's Black Ops IIIII.

Marc gets dancing with a bit of Beat Saber while Matt explores the wasteland without Andrew W.K. and Joe reads Netflix producer biographies in a Castlevania game.

This week on The Free Cheese, we bring back the dead. Marc teaches you how to rig the arcade so you and your family can get switchblade combs. Matt maintains his status on Xbox Live without compromising his trash talking. Joe checks out a bunch of video tapes.

Without a lot that we've been playing recently to talk about, we instead look backwards and forwards in time to talk about video game remakes, reboots, and revivals. We talk about some of our favorite examples of each and share our dreams for games that could see new life somewhere in the future.

Then, we recap some news from the week and think a bit about how close we are to Electronic Three.

This week on The Free Cheese, we’re not slowing down. Marc and Joe are excited for the future of Sonic the Hedgehog cinema and talk about our favorite live-action Pokémon so far. We also talk about how Microsoft thinks you should trash talk appropriately and how crunch is affecting the video game industry.

Marc spent some time this week waving a tiny ball at his screen while Joe continued to learn the art of the cards.
