Mega Man animated series announced

Capcom announced that in conjunction with Man of Action Entertainment and Dentsu Entertainment USA, that a 26-episode Mega Man series is coming in 2017. Dentsu Entertainment will gain worldwide broadcast and licensing rights for the new Mega Man TV series, under the deal between the parties. Man of Action Entertainment was handpicked by Dentsu Entertainment because of their previous work on Ben 10 and Big Hero 6. The series release date of 2017 is significant as that is the 30th anniversary for Mega Man. Exciting stuff!

GameStopLogo_BlackRedHot Topic outbid by GameStop

Last week I reported that Hot Topic was buying GeekNet, parent company behind ThinkGeek, but now it seems they have been outbid. GameStop has decided to throw its own weight around and purchase GeekNet. GameStop offered $20.00 per share versus $17.50, along with offering the same $37 million in cash. The transaction has a total equity value of approximately $140 million. Because, you know, who would take $122 million over $140 million dollars?
