This Is Why CoD: Ghosts Is Best on Wii U

On point

'The latest instalment in the phenomenally successful Call of Duty franchise launched earlier this week, and it's probably already broken all sorts of crazy sales records' - is a sentence that you've probably read every year now, since around 2007.

Mega Man 2.5D Beta Blasts Into View With Co-Op Play

Fan game teams up with Proto Man on PC

So, OK, time continues to pass and we still don't have a new and official Mega Man game to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise.
