[REVIEW] Mercenaries Saga 2: Order of the Silver Eagle

Mercenaries Saga 2: Order of the Silver Eagle
Played on: 3DS
Genre: Strategy RPG
Developer: Rideon, Inc
Publisher: CIRCLE

3DS-owning fans of strategy RPGs have a cool new way to scratch that waiting-for-Fire-Emblem-Fates itch: Mercenaries Saga 2, a well-designed little package that's as addictive as one would hope for an entry in the genre. Better yet, it's a title that's as large in gameplay time as it is cheap to get.

[REVIEW] Watch Dogs

Watch Dogs
Played on: Wii U
Genre: Open-world action-adventure
Developer / Publisher: Ubisoft

Nintendo has a well known modus operandi, choosing to pave its own way rather than follow industry trends. For the most part, this is precisely what has kept me so interested in the brand over the years, although there is a particular trend I wish they'd show more interest in: open-world gameplay. Sadly, Wii U has seen only a few such games, meaning the existence of Watch Dogs, which is supposed to be Ubisoft very last non-casual offering on the platform, is welcome.
