What is this? I cry as I get out of the masturbation basement. Game? An actual new game with some buzz around and graphics and no dreaded deck building at all? Get up from your graves, industry reporters! The drought is over! The sun has risen in a new age – I finished it in four hours. Well, that was hardly worth turning off the air conditioner in the basement.
