FIFA 16 Ultimate Team: 20 Legends Who Must Be Included

Mark Allan/AP

FIFA 16 chatter is starting to swell, with rumours of new features and cool additions constantly swirling around message boards, though one of the most heart-warming changes to the modern games was the introduction of old legends.

Some world renowned names took centre stage in the finest stadia around the world long before the virtual universe was spawned, while others have previously featured on earlier FIFA instalments as little more than a rudimentary chunk of pixels spewing out from a rugged, trusty Sega Genesis.

The game has improved immeasurably since then, with each edition being coated in thick layers of realism, though now players get the chance to see Pele, Beckenbauer, Maldini and more grace their HD screens – very much a step in the right direction.

Apex Publications brand new zombie imprint Tzf Books has just released it’s first title: Asylum by Mark Allan Gunnells.

Lady Gaga has never been one to shy away from the topic of sexuality. Whether it's her barely there outfits, her double-entendre-laden lyrics (infer from "I'm bluffin' with my muffin" what you will), or her onstage escapades, she's more than willing to discuss, dissect or display sex.

And in the September issue of Out magazine, Gaga gets deep, addressing rumors about her own sexuality — specifically, her supposed preference for women — her lifelong immersion in gay culture and how both of those things have helped make her the very fabulous star she is today.

"I had a few gay piano teachers. I was in acting class and ballet from a very young age, and I remember being around a lot of gay boys in dance class.
