Did Sony just leak God of War’s release date?

The PlayStation 4 has a lot of exciting games coming up, but perhaps one of the most exciting is God of War. Though you'd think most players would tire of God of War by now, after 12 releases across various Sony consoles and handhelds, this soft reboot of sorts is definitely shaking things up a bit.

Mega Man 11 revealed for late 2018 release

It's been a long time since we've had a proper Mega Man game, but that's all going to change next year. During Capcom's 30th Anniversary livestream for the Mega Man series today, the company revealed Mega Man 11, continuing the mainline series that first started on the NES back in 1987.
