I like the NA update just a bit better. I'm pumped for rayman origins for $15 and symphony of the night, as well as Awesomenauts and getting Trine 2. I do wish we got mushroom wars though.

Bloody nora, how many free games? I nearly bought Mahjong the other day — glad I waited. Helluva line-up!

PlayStation Plus is the gift that keeps on giving.

Think I may buy myself some PlayStation Plus as a present.

@James It's well worth it man. It keeps getting better as well. I'm continually staggered by how much they give away on a monthly basis. It's worth it for the discounts alone, but when you factor in the free games too it becomes a no-brainer.

EDIT: I've just noticed we get Max Payne too.

My PS+ ran out last week Ill definitely be upgrading it again. PS+ is worth every penny and the freebies in May look really good. Max Payne anyone?
