    Welcome to a shadow drop! Yes, friends, this is a special edition of Nerds Without Pants hitting a few days before episode 154 releases. Because we love you. And Julian is an editing masochist. Anyway, enjoy this meandering talk between Julian and Justin before the show as they wait for Patrick to show up. There's some E3 talk that didn't make it into the main show, a little bit of Consumption Junction, and even some behind the scenes talk. Maybe not the most riveting content, but we like seeing when podcasts pull the curtain back, so maybe you will too! Enjoy, and please look forward to episode 154, coming soon!

    So, 2018 was like eleventy billion years long, but at least we got a lot of great games to play. And the Nerds Without Pants even played some great games last year that didn’t come out in 2018. So, seeing as how this is a podcast and all, we decided to sit down and talk about our favorite games that we played. Julian dropped the ball on booking a guest for this one, but thankfully Justin Hamm of the Clickbait Update podcast was nice enough to pitch in again, and at the last minute, no less! We run down our top five games that we played in 2018, along with some honorable mentions, and y’know what? It ends up being a pretty cool and eclectic list of games. NEXT EPISODE: THE RETURN OF STAGE SELECT! Patrick wants to know what retro-style indie game would you design? You only get one, so make it interesting! THE BEGINNING OF THE GREAT GAME GIVEAWAY!
