Pokemon Ultra Sun (3DS) - I enjoyed it more than the original Sun, but only just. I liked the little changes, but flying between worlds is dumb. Why would anyone want to use gyro controls? They're awful. If I had to recommend one 3DS pokemon, it would probably be this one. My Team:
Sgt Peckers the Decidueye - Leaf blade, false swipe, spirit shackle, pluck
Mcpl Bubble the Vaporeon - ice beam, scald, shadow ball, muddy water
Lt Surge the Raichu - psychic, thunderbolt, nasty plot, charm
Cpl Grimes the Muk - crunch, poison fang, poison jab, knock off
Mcpl McBurn the Magmar - confuse ray, feint attack, fire punch, flamethrower
Lt Patootie the Ribombee - pollen puff, dazzling gleam, quiver dance, roost
Muk was useless, to be honest. He can hit for a lot of damage, but he's slow and only has not bad defense. The move spread just didn't cover a lot of weaknesses. I didn't even use it during the pokemon league. I would've liked to evolve magmar, but I like him and it's the first time I used a magmar, so it was all right.

Mercenaries Saga 2: Order Of The Silver Eagle (3DS) was a solid, simple Japanese tactics game. I liked how each character felt different, and that you can't unlock everyone's best class so you have to pick and choose with some guesswork and fingers crossed on what you're changing a party member into. Kenneth as a Merchant (mostly using Assassin skills) was my hero. I liked taking Colette down the Dancer, Monk, Valkyrie path. Although I didn't unlock Valk until 2 or 3 stages before the end, she became the most versatile and useful character I had for those stages. A healing, buffing, damage-dealing, unkillable queen of combat.
The balance and length were perfect on this one. It was fun to play something so simple/retro from a subgenre I rarely touch anymore.

I also played three games of Into the Breach (PC) on Easy over the weekend. The package as a whole is more simple than FTL, which was disappointing, but as a tactics game it's very rewarding to plan out a series of moves and pull a victory out of a bad situation, and bad situations happen often. Each squad I've used has been a new experience, which is cool. I keep feeling like I'm barely winning, so I haven't tried Normal yet. I might see if I can win with each squad once first, then take my favorite into Normal and see what happens.
