First off, just a reminder that the very lucrative FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Anniversary Tournament is well underway online, so be sure you get involved the next time you log in. You should also make sure you try and win yourself some of the big money cards this week. Topping the list is everyone's favorite Swede, Zlatan Ibrahimovic (ST, Paris Saint-Germain) at a beautiful 92 overall. His 95 shooting and 90 dribbling stats are more than enough to make you want to pick him up. Juan Mata has had a couple of stellar weeks, enjoying a brace against arch-rival Liverpool including a gorgeous scorpion kick for the winner. His 89 dribbling and 86 passing make him a must have in your attack. Gerard Pique enjoyed a victory over Real Madrid this week at center half, and his 89 defensive stat gives him a leg up on most any La Liga or Spanish squads.
As always, these cards and others listed in the picture will be available until next Wednesday.
I'll admit, I don't fire up my Xbox 360 that much as of late, especially since I tend to play Ultra Street Fighter IV on my PC, but I'll typically connect to Xbox Live once or twice a month to claim my free games. While browsing Facebook I found a link to Xbox's news site that states players will get double the games in April for Xbox Live's Games With Gold program.
Xbox One owners will be able to get Pool Nation FX and Child of Light, while Xbox 360 owners will get a whopping four games, two per half of the month...and we're not talking just random piddly little games (except one in my opinion), but pretty big titles. From April 1st through the 15th you can download Terraria and Gears of War Judgement, while from April 16th through the 30th you can get Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel. Something tells me my hard drive will be losing a lot of space this month.

Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Obsidian Entertainment has announced that their Kickstarter-funded, role-playing game Pillars of Eternity is available now on Steam and GOG.com. Pillars of Eternity was created as a love letter to classic isometric role-playing games such as Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment, but combined with the design of a modern video game.
Along with a new launch trailer, the developers will be hosting a special live stream today that will include an introduction to the world of Eora. Tune into Twitch starting at 3 p.m. PT to catch the stream.

Sega has announced a massive publisher sale on Steam that begins today and will run until Monday, March 30. During the Steam sale, a Sega Super Bundle will be available for purchase for $80 that includes 93 games in total. Other bundles include the Total War, Company of Heroes, and Dawn of War series of games.
Sale highlights include Alien: Isolation for $12.49, Valkyria Chronicles for $6.79, and Football Manager 2015 for $33.49. My personal recommendation of the sale is Aliens: Colonial Marines for $3.75, which I know a lot of critics and fans absolutely loathed. If you don't expect too much from the game, but a generic first-person shooter set in the fantastic Aliens film universe and you're sure to have a good time.
Remember to make your selections and purchases this weekend as the sale ends on Monday, March 30, at 9 a.m. PST.

Tons of Mortal Kombat X news out today. As Jeremy pointed out earlier, it appears that a new trailer for Mortal Kombat X was released, for whatever reason, in Russia, which highlights the Kung Lao, Kung Jin and the John Cena of Mortal Kombat himself, Liu Kang.
That's not the only trailer coming soon however as rock band System Of A Down is teaming up with NetherRealm Studios for not one but two different trailers.
The first trailer, a TV spot, which features SOAD's "Chop Suey" will debut tomorrow, March 27th. The worldwide launch trailer, directed by SOAD's Shavo Odadjian, will premiere on Monday April 6th.
Some interesting snippets of the game can be seen in the teaser video including what appears to be Baraka and The Dragon King Onaga, who was the boss in Mortal Kombat Deception.
Mortal Kombat X is only a few weeks away as it launches on April 14 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Still no official word yet if the last gen versions were delayed. Apparently their launch dates have been changed on some sites to June.
