Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
In Stores This Week Around the World

And BOOM, suddenly we have some releases to get our teeth (and credit cards) stuck into this week. After a long spell of relative quietness, there's four or five games hitting stores around the world that are worthy of your time. And Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion XL.

It's a nice mix too. So shooter fans get to grapple with the tactical complexities of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, RPG fans can indulge their pawn addiction with Dragon's Dogma and racing fans get to smash the crap out of everyone with DiRT Showdown. Something for everyone. Kinda. There's even a couple of PS3 exclusives in the form of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock in Europe and Sorcery in North America.

Elsewhere, there's a few other bits and bobs. Aussies get Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion XL, North America gets the men in, the men in, the Men In Black game Alien Crisis, while Asia gets... some Asiany sounding stuff and a couple of re-releases of older Western titles.

More weeks like this please.

I'm in NA, and there's only one of those I'd buy right away (Dragon's Dogma), and even still I will probably wait. Meh.

Good week indeed. Hopefully getting Ghost Recon. Dirt Showdown demo didn't amaze me at all.
