Game of the Week (10/21): Ratchet and Clank Future: ToD

Who knows how far this will go, but I'm starting up a Game of the Week item here on Virtual Viewpoints and what better game to usher it in than Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction for the PS3.

Outside of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune coming next month, this is the game that will most likely be the Playstation 3 Game of the Year. This is the next game in a proven great franchise and Insomniac would have to really screw things up in order to not make a good Ratchet and Clank game.

It is a sad state of affairs that Sony's best games are coming out so late in the year for the Playstation 3. I don't think this game is going to spur sales in any way, but it should be a really good game and probably the best game so far for the system.

Other games this week include:

Eye of Judgement (Sony, PS3) - will be reviewing once copy is here

EA Playground (EA, Wii/DS) - looks fun with a lot of sports games

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation (Bandai Namco, 360) - some people swear by this game and there is even a controller to go along with it

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles (Konami, PSP) - must get if you have a PSP. Rondo of Blood in 3D and 2D as well as Symphony of the Night included

Naruto: Clash of the Ninja Revolution (Tomy, Wii) - sounds like a good fighting game for the Wii

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trails and Tribulations (Capcom, DS) - many people love this series, so why not pick up the new one?

Zack and Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure (Capcom, Wii) - good word of mouth so far on this one

Painkiller: Overdose (Dreamcatcher, PC) - a mod that turns into a full game
