This week on The Free Cheese: we’ll provide copies on release day!

We bring our month of monsters to a close with a conversation about Casltevania: Aria of Sorrow, our pick for this month’s game club.

Matt continues to love Batman: The Telltale Series in the latest episode release and tries the latest in first-person shooter offerings, Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2. Marc goes to the eShop and brings back Pirate Pop Plus and Gotta Protectors, the latter is the latest from the developers of Streets of Rage 2. Joe goes to hell and doesn’t want to leave thanks to the latest DOOM released earlier this year, but finds himself back in  high school in Persona 4.

We try to guess what Nintendo is announcing at the Japanese Animal Crossing Direct, wonder what a new Final Fantasy on mobile looks like, and why Marc fell suddenly in love with Pokémon Sun and Moon.

As companies begin to withhold review copies from media outlets, we discuss what this means for the future of games media and for our purchases. We talk about which companies are already taking steps to control messaging and what we care about in a game review.
