Extremely sweet. After a month like this, I guess it puts an end to thread asking if Plus is worth it. Shank and a relatively recent NFS game? For free? After Trine 2 was free last month? It's been an amazing year for Plus users.

Also, if you love retro games (well, somewhat retro), Silent hill is a winner.

RE 2 & 3 last month as well.

Shank 2, Shift 2 for free?

Don't mind if i do!

Only had PS+ for 2 months and it's already more than proved its worth.

It's nice because it's the only one of the original trilogy (before the nonsense that was Silent Hill 4) that isn't in the HD collection.

No doubt the haters will be along soon to say there is nothing there of interest to them and how Plus is a big waste of money.

Great update for April and my subscription has possibly been one of the best purchases I've made, just after PlayTV which I got on launch and have used ever since.

Yep. I got my subscription to plus as soon as they launched it and I've renewed once. I think it is a no-brainer to get a subscription if you've got a PS3.

Whats I Am Alive actually like?

I remember seeing it donkeys years ago and being very excited for it.

It dropped off the radar then appeared again recently, I've tried looking at reviews but it seems to get wildly different scores for each website.

Is metacritic a reliable average metric?

I think its a good one. I saw, not played, a bit on 360. It looked okay.


IGN hated it. 4.5
GameSpot liked it. 7.5

Still have to get around to playing the first Shank game but my friends who've played it all seemed to have enjoyed it. Also nice to see Shift 2 there, been a game I've had my eye on for a while but never actually bought. Have had other things keeping me busy as of late but I'll definitely get around to it at some point here.

Right after Mrach and just before Mya. :)

It's been too long since I posted the topic so I can no longer edit it. If a mod would be so kind, I'd be much obliged :)

Noticed that my subscription was ending the middle of this month, just managed to pick up a £35 PSN card for less than £28 so that's the bulk of the subscription paid for think I have the other £5 in my wallet already. Not quite as good as my previous year for £30 deal but still pretty decent for 12 months.
