It's almost time to do engage once again in Mortal Kombat. But for the sake of argument, let's say that you're into NetherRealm's recent renewal on the MK lore and want to catch up with the Mortal Kombat storyline. If you don't own Mortal Kombat X, you are in luck. Xbox Live Gold members can play the full MKX game this weekend only. This is your chance to catch up before April's Mortal Kombat 11 arrives.

For PlayStation 4 owners, it's time for another Flash Sale. There are some intriguing deals in place for recent blockbusters, like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Hitman 2. But if you're a PlayStation Plus user and don't feel like parting with your money for Black Ops, there's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, which just hit the PlayStation Plus freebie list this week.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it.
