Wooderon’s favourite Video Games of 2019 – #7

There was a lot of drama surrounding the release of today’s game. Totally unnecessary drama too if you ask me. A whole bunch of swinging egos and misadventures of the people at the top of the development team that were worthy of a farcical comedy sitcom.
