Gamewatch: Divinity II Dragon Knight Saga, Patapon 3

If you shrugged off this sequel's first try for your wallet, Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga (Xbox 360) promises to be a little smoother and cleaner. Larian Studios' action roleplaying trip through stock fantasy world Rivellon (bosky dales, Germanic cities, hordes of goblins, etc.) might not have Skyrim's cachet, but it does include the "remastered" original (Ego Draconis) plus the previously Europe-only expansion Flames of Vengeance. They've even slapped a play hours total in a bullet point (over 100) and tallied up the mission count (over 180). Grinding? Perhaps. Epic? Beyond doubt. ETA: April 12

Patapon 3 (PSP) sounds a lot like Patapon 1 and 2 in that you're tap-drumming commands on the PSP's button diamond to tell platoons of cyclopean Patapons whether to rally or retreat. The draw this time may be online competitive play, including a four-player online mode. ETA: April 12
