For our second entry in our Video Game Book Club, we played CrossCode, a wonderful love letter to they heyday of MMORPGs! And what better way to pay our own homage to this era than by trying to play a 40 hour game in two weeks? Maybe this was a bad idea! Or maybe we just aren't in high school anymore? Either way, we (mostly) had a great time, and now we're ready to sit down and talk about it!

In this episode: MMO experience, I play too much Zelda to have a silent protagonist like this, we fail to explain what CrossCode is for 10 minutes, if the game wants me to stop it'll have to tell me to stop, gamepad vs mouse & keyboard vs secret third option mouse & gamepad??, this love letter to MMORPGs plays a lot like Zelda, we really tried to do a 40 hour game in two weeks, too many shoutouts (sorry not sorry?)

Space Cowboy Online got bought and sold a bunch of times and apparently you can still play it?

Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates! Is also still kicking, god bless
