Warriors Wednesday: The Solid Whack You Can Deliver with Wood

Things are getting noticeably more difficult as we approach the conclusion of the Samurai campaign in Warriors Orochi.

For existing Musou fans, I hope you enjoy. For those new to the Musou series, here’s pretty much where it all began.
