Downloadable Games
Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty [metacritic] {$15} – They missed on either the price or the length; it feels like a bonus level for Tools of Destruction, but maybe not enough to justify the price. (I’m only about 45 minutes, maybe I’ll change my mind.) It’s still a good game, but lack a little. As such a direct follow up to Tools of Destruction, you’d think they could’ve provided some benefit here for playing the last game.

EA SPORTS Live Score Tracker {$1} – for those so into fantasy football, they rather hang out on the Madden ’09 menu screen then watch the games as they’re happening…
