The Free Cheese Episode 459: Pikmin 3
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.
The Free Cheese Episode 458: Paperboy 2
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.
The Free Cheese Episode 457: NBA Hangtime
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.
The Free Cheese Episode 456: Tokyo Jungle
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.
The Free Cheese Episode 455: NHL Stanley Cup
This week on The Free Cheese, gonna be a big man someday.
Tape up those sticks and lace up your skates, it's time to hit the ice in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System's NHL Stanley Cup. We discuss the title's use of Mode 7 to bring hockey into the third dimension and stack it up against its Genesis counterparts.
The Free Cheese Episode 454: Viewtiful Joe
This week on The Free Cheese, t h i s w e e k o n T h e F r e e C h e e s e.
What do you get when the team who made Bayonetta didn't know they would make Bayonetta and still worked at Capcom and wanted to make a 2D beat 'em up? Viewtiful Joe 2! But before that, they had to make Viewtiful Joe so we could talk about and rank it this week.
My buddy went to a training with one of the guys on this podcast and told me I had to listen when he got back. I took his advice and I am really digging the dynamic and format of this podcast. I am totally glad this was recommended to me and I am definitely going to go through the backlog and listen to everything I can.
Keep up the good work guys!

Thorough content and great information
It's refreshing to hear honest opinions, experiences, and expectations from and for video games. Very deep cut content. I always learn so much from every show.
I stopped listening to the IGN, Joystiq, and other gaming podcasts because they got annoying for numerous reasons. This one is well structured and will give you the same information but is more fun since these guys have a sense of humor.
