Just when you thought the Mega Man cartoon couldn't get any weirder

So, that Mega Man cartoon. It's a thing. It's coming next year, and it follows Mega Man's alter-go "Aki Light" as he...attends school and moonlights as the Blue Bomber. It's...like, you know, whatever. But new details from IGN have brought ...   read

The new Mega Man cartoon looks uh, well you'll see

Fans have basically given up hope. Sure Capcom is pumping out Mega Man merchandise daily, and there's another mobile game on the way, but the series has been in limbo -- no question about it. There was a glimmer of hope though in the new ca...   read

Quantum Break is the 'best-selling new Microsoft Studios IP of this generation'

The cross-media TV and gaming gamble paid off for Remedy and Microsoft, as they have just reported that Quantum Break is the "best-selling new Microsoft Studios IP of this generation." Initially the game was selling like crazy over in ...   read

That new Mega Man cartoon looks like it's seriously happening

I've seen a ton of video game related projects come and go. Some director or developer off-handedly mentions something about a TV series or a spinoff game in an interview, people go wild for a few days, and then nothing happens for over a d...   read

One year later, the Sons of Anarchy game may have been a scam

Back in August 2015 it came to my attention that the episodic Sons of Anarchy game, released six months prior, had virtually no updates regarding a follow-up -- despite the fact that a Season Pass was sold upfront. The developer and publish...   read

Powers Season 2 will debut in May, still free on PS Plus

PlayStation Plus added a nice extra last year with Powers, the first PSN exclusive TV show. Sure it was cheesy and the budget isn't great, but there are some heavy-hitting actors that at least make it entertaining. Well, the show is returni...   read

ESPN tries to be hip with the LoL kids

I know the general response to ESPN's embarrassing attempts at referencing League of Legends will be cutting snark, and I get that. They are painfully out of touch and trying too hard. But I also can't help but find it kind of end...   read

Seth Rogen is making a show about a socially inept gamer who saves the world

I like a lot of Seth Rogen joints for a multitude of reasons, but in his attempt to scattershot ideas with his writing partner Evan Goldberg over cross joints, he can come up with some pretty bad stuff. That basically sums up my feelin...   read

PlayStation Vue is off to a good start, but it needs a bit more time
