Red Dead Redemption 2 has been confirmed and we talk about the technicalities of whether or not it’s the second game or third game in the series. The new Plants vs. Zombies card game is out. Will it be able to steal some audience from Hearthstone? And speaking of Hearthstone, Blizzard has announced a new Heroic Tavern Brawl. We’ll give you the details. Voice actors are getting ready to strike because they can’t reach an acceptable deal with game publisher. Plus the head of World of Warcraft is working on another project. What could it be? There’s something about Smite that’s hilarious, and finally there’s going to be a tv show based on Candy Crush. We’ll tell you what’s up with that?
