Episode #601: Is ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ Easy For Non-Gamers Who Want To Explore? And More MuggleMail

On this week’s episode, we delve into our MuggleMailbag for the first time in 2023! Coming off our recent review episode of Hogwarts Legacy, listeners share their thoughts and discoveries about the game. And we properly wrap up our Chamber of Secrets Chapter By Chapter series by choosing ONE 7-Word Summary to redo, based on patron feedback.
