The Mega Man series seems to have been silently killed off by Capcom ever since Keiji Inafune left the company back 2010 after working for them for 23 years. It was a bittersweet departure, as it was taken as a sign that one of Capcom's most beloved franchises was done for. The cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 and Mega Man Universe further signified the end of the Blue Bomber, although Capcom did give him a strange cameo and an awesome one soon after. However, Keiji Inafune is now bringing back the spirit of the Mega Man series with Mighty No. 9, a game that is essentially the Blue Bomber's successor.

Things aren't looking to great for Microsoft, and it's only getting worse. While there is plenty of the Xbox One bashing throughout the internet, we tried out the console ourselves during E3 last week, and it's a pretty capable machine. Unfortunately, it seems as though the impressive Xbox One demos weren't being run on an Xbox One... they were using a PC.
