Having just lost office-wide productivity for six glorious minutes, I'm a man in a hurry - unlike Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd and company, who have spent 20 years not putting out any new Ghostbusters stuff.

Until today, that is, as their surprisingly engaging collaboration with Terminal Reality arrives on PS3 and PS2. The other versions are due out later this year after Sony stepped in to publish the game for Atari for reasons unknown (well, reasons unpublic).

But really if the week belongs to anyone, it's split between two very different extremes: 505 and Bohemia's superlative ArmA II on the PC, and Yuji Naka's percussive Let's Tap on Wii, which surely sum up the diversity of gaming: one's a comprehensive simulation of war from the soldier's perspective, the other's a game where you clap your hands on a cardboard box to make stuff dance and jump.

This week:

  • A Little Bit of... Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training: Maths Edition (DSiWare)
  • ArmA II (PC)
  • Ghostbusters: The Video Game (PS3, PS2)
  • Icarian: Kindred Spirits (WiiWare)
  • Let's Catch (WiiWare)
  • Let's Tap (Wii)
  • Magic the Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers (Xbox Live Arcade)
  • MySims Racing (DS, Wii)
  • Rock Band Unplugged (PSP)
  • Rocket Riot (Xbox Live Arcade)
  • Sam & Max Save the World (Xbox Live Arcade)
