Every now and then I come across a franchise that I eventually become addicted to. But there are times that I also ignore certain franchises. Up until about a year or two ago Ratchet and Clank was one of those franchises that I ignored. Maybe it was because of the cute and cuddly Ratchet, maybe it was because I was broke as hell and didn't value the franchise, but one day I decided to splurge and spent $20 on Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal. It turned out to be one of the most entertaining games I've ever played.
