In this Side Mission episode, Steph, Marlee, and Lindsey bring back an old game back into the rotation. That's right, Fortnite is back! But only because of Zero Build Mode.

Side Mission: Stray
Season 6, Ep. 8
Hang onto your cupcakes! Linds and Mar dive in (or rather fall in) to a walled in cyberpunk world and discuss Stray! We do our best to not talk (and cry) just about how much we love cats, and to cover this delightful little indie cat adventure game. Steph couldn't make it this time, but our irl cats (Marlee's Harvey and Lindsey's Hamilton) step up to the plate to try to fill the void. Afterwards, we chat about the games we're playing, and equally importantly... the Hogwarts Legacy outfits we're making!
