Check out the latest Project CARS trailer, which highlights night racing, severe weather conditions and more. The game arrives on March 17th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC with a Nintendo Wii U release later in the year.

Read the full press release below.

NEW PROJECT CARS NIGHT RACING TRAILER
SCARES UP THRILLS FOR HALLOWEEN

Slightly Mad Studios and BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today released a brand new trailer for Project CARS, coming to PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One® all-in-one games and entertainment system and PC on March 17, 2015 and later in 2015 for the Nintendo Wii U™ system.

The new trailer throws racers into a thrilling white-knuckled night race to celebrate the Halloween season. The Halloween trailer exemplifies Slightly Mad Studios’ approach that everything they put into Project CARS not only has to look stunning but must add additional gameplay.

The video showcases the incredible visual fidelity that allows tracks to be recreated with absolute perfection, but also highlights the added challenge that night racing and severe weather conditions bring – especially in a tight pack of blisteringly fast GT spec cars. So sit back and enjoy the thrill and drama of this dark decent and Happy Halloween!

WWE 2K15 on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 are debuting a new mode called, "Who Got Nxt" into the game.

Quote:
" In a nutshell, our idea was to create a compelling unlock method. We wanted to create a mode or area of the game where players could control a handful of NXT Superstars with the stipulation they’d be strictly confined to the mode and not be available for use outside of said mode until certain requirements had been fulfilled by the player – and when I mean confined, I mean confined! Until completing said requirements, NXT Superstars would be prohibited from all game modes (e.g. Exhibition, Online, Creation Suite, Universe), and their associated assets (e.g. moves, entrance videos, etc.) would be locked. We wanted the unlocking of an NXT Superstar to be similar to that of an actual NXT Superstar being called up to the main roster."
You can see more screens from the mode in our WWE 2K15 media section. What do you think about the Who Got Nxt mode?

Another week of NFL football gives us another new Operation Sports FanDuel fantasy football league. It's $5 to enter again in week 8 and first place wins $75. Click here to join.

OperationSports Member mattman1398 cruised to a 7 point victory in week 7, thanks to a great lineup that included some of the day's best picks. Demaryius Thomas and Sammy Watkins had breakout days for mattman, combining for 17 catches, 293 yards and 4 touchdowns. Neither player was owned by more than 10% of the field. Mattman paid up at quarterback to select Andrew Luck who didn't meet expectations, but he was still able to best the 72 other entries to secure the week 7 win. Had mattman entered his team into the Sunday $2 Million tournament, he would've finished in 640th out of 91,000 teams, good for a $250 payday.

Sweettouch finished in 2nd place, carried by a strong day by an off-the-radar selection, Matt Forte.

Here's mattman1398's lineup, which was good for a nice $75 first place prize.


Here's the link for week 8's league. Good luck!

The new courts, which were scheduled to arrive for NBA 2K15 before the regular season tips off, are already here. This update includes new courts for the Cleveland Cavaliers, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets.

These should be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (no word on PC yet), per 2K. It doesn't appear to be an addition for old-gen consoles.

While it would be ideal to have an online franchise/booker option with multiple friends, one of the coolest additions to WWE 2K15 could be the use of friends’ created characters in the MyCareer mode. The “invasion” concept only supports five characters per career, but this is something that I think will really add some personality and randomness to the story-based offering. Reality is already bent by having your own created character in the world, so why not add some additional wackiness with your friends in the mix?
