North America’s slightly less exciting PlayStation Plus offering continues to play catch up to its infinitely superior European counterpart this week with the addition of Guardians of Middle-Earth, the Monolith developed MOBA that stars characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s dreary universe. Maybe if you pretend that you're excited about this, you might actually feel better.

The freebie will be accompanied by steep discounts on Karateka, Big Sky Infinity, and Knytt Underground. Meanwhile, lucky European members can look forward to complimentary copies of Sleeping Dogs, F1 Race Stars, and Quantum Conundrum on Wednesday. Cheer up – at least you guys get Mountain Dew Code Red.
