Level 200 - Stats and the Union Address

This Week's Panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, FuFuCuddilyPoof, Matrarch

This Week's Question - What are suggestions for a great game where you can play and get all achievements without missables or having to follow a walkthrough?

Ell and Michelle played an excellent point and click Game Pass game. Kenny played a hilarious Game Pass game. Nate...did NOT play a Game Pass game, but he played some straight fire!
Ell played the best Rockstar game and tailed Candy Edwards! Could be this be the start of the Achievement Showcase? Are there any hidden codes in these shownotes? 

Several retro games are discussed, as we are very old people. Time for some Mega Man X, on sale now!

PS - There will be a fair amount of reminsicing about the first 199 episodes, and kT Echo provided us with some great stats! Thank you, Echo!
