This week on The Free Cheese, we become human.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary in North America next week, we discuss our list of favorite 20 N64 games and some of the games that made the cut. Marc tells us about the time he tricked a child.

We find out if Joe was right about the NX after last week’s prediction, and why Marc and Kyle struggle to find enjoyment in thatgamecompany’s Journey. We discuss the uniqueness of Journey and how it holds up after almost five years.

Dragon Quest VII is out and so far we’ve delivered one sandwich. Shovel Knight is still a great game and Plague of Shadows is still a perfect expansion to the original title. Finally, Slain: Back from Hell is released on PS4 and we find out if it feels as great as it looks.
Witness the return of Lightning Round as it leads us into our topic of the week, all about the ethics of VR development and what the future holds for our X-Files episode called “Life.”
