This week on The Free Cheese, we enter Ultra Reality.

Joe and Marc gather this week to discuss the Nintendo 64 and its twentieth anniversary. We share the stories of receiving ours and the games we got at launch.

Marc plays some Hyper Light Drifter in a glorious 60 frames per second and wonders why he has to in the first place. Joe wants more out of Slain: Back from Hell and finds it in Super Mario 64. While Joe treks deeper into Dragon Quest VII, Marc leaps higher with one hand in Leap Day.

Finally, we talk about how a decade-long rival ended up as a partnership and strong collaboration.
