New batch of Musou Stars character trailers feature my dude-a Opoona

The Dynasty Warriors series is my favorite video game series overall. Musou games bring me a joy I can't describe, really. It's just so satisfying to mow down waves of enemies as a super powered jerk who couldn't care less about their medic...   read
