Got a sweet tooth?
Tuesday night on The Late Show, Stephen Colbert addressed the recent news that King Digital Entertainment — the creator of Candy Crush — was bought for $5.9 billion last week by Activision Blizzard.
Yes, you read that number right!

As the late night host HIGHlariously pointed out:
"That's even more than Disney paid for Star Wars or approximately how much I would pay to see the next Star Wars movie right now!"
In light of this news, Colbert announced it won't be long before we see a Candy Crush movie. Stephen went on to say that even though the film doesn't exist yet, he has a clip form the flick — starring Liam Neeson as Mr. Toffee!
Ch-ch-check out the crazy and wild sketch (below) and let us know what you think of the idea of a Candy Crush movie!

Dude sings like a lady and he did not sign up for that!
Adam Levine of The Voice and Maroon 5 is suing Activision over his avatar in Band Hero. In the game, a character using his likeness is used when a player reaches the band's hit She Will Be Loved in the game. That Adam agreed to.

Sad. We know a lot of people who
wasted enjoyed a lot of hours rocking out with this game.
Activision Blizzard Inc. has announced they are ending the "Guitar Hero" franchise after a run of more than five years. Over the past year, the game has become an "unprofitable product" for the company, so they've opted to cut their losses.
The decision to end the franchise of musical video games will also mean a loss of about 500 jobs in its Activision Publishing business division.
Such a bummer.
Our condolences to all those who have lost their jobs and those who have lost their favorite past time.

Holy shiz, geeks! Look what you did!

INSANE! How does that even happen?
What do U think? Is that video game really that good?
