2018 might be over, but the games it left are still fresh on our minds… okay, maybe we need a reminder! This episode, we’ll have Cuki and Scott’s take on their favorite games from 2018, and maybe some that didn’t exactly release this year. Unfortunately, Dio Brando’s Stand ZA WARULDO was used to remove Neil’s list from this episode, but that should hopefully be up and corrected in time for Part 2!
