on the shelves

10/07: NBA 2K9 [metacritic]
10/07: NBA Live 09[metacritic]
10/07: NBA '09 [metacritic]

That's the order; 2K9 is ahead of Live and '09 is behind both. The quick version is 2K9 is deeper and better for the hardcore player (5 on 5 online mode! bring the fun of ball hogs and people jacking up shots they have no business shooting home!) and Live is the easier one to pick up and play. '09 is a roster update, with few bugs fixed.

10/07: Fracture [metacritic] - repetitive mediocre first person shooter with some good ideas underneath.

in the store

Qore #5 {$3, $25 for annual subscription)
- includes demo of Valkyrie Chronicle

Downloadable Games
- Linger In Shadows {$3} - I have no idea what this is. I mean, I read the game developer hyping it, and I still have no idea what this is. I'm not sure they know either. They're calling it an interactive art exhibit.

- Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Car {$15} - look, a racing game on PS3! Hard.

- Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords {$15} - this was previously downloadable for just the PSP, but they've got it on the PS3's store too now. Hope that's a trend.

PS1 Classics (8 weeks!)

Add On Content
- Hot Shots Golf Fall Fashion Line {$3}

* get the Premier League, Bundesliga German, Liga BBCA Spanish, Ligue 1 French, Primera Divsion de Mexico or Serie A Italian for $7, or get all six for $20.

This is the same as NBA Live last week; ratings for your chosen league get updated during the season. You get a "sponsored paid for" free league with purchase of the game and you can pay to get more (which seems a bit of a ripoff.)

I haven't played her team yet, but I did play against Funkmaster Flex (oh god, my lifelong dream is fulfilled). His team's stats were maxed out to 99 on everything. That's pretty cheap. Regardless, I played him twice and won the second time.
