From hints at the potential Left 4 Dead 3, to Rockstar responding to getting sued by a soon-to-be-washed up reality TV star, things just kept on rolling high and fast in the world of interactive entertainment this week.

In fact, Watch Dogs continued to dominate the news headlines like wonder-boy Brendan Boyle managed to win the house seat in the 13th district of Philadelphia with a Rocky-sized K.O to take home a tree-hugging position he can proudly show his parents... and teachers. There was also a little matter of Nintendo shutting down the Wii and Nintendo DS online multiplayer, a move that's sure to burn some players the wrong way like an ignition switch in a General Motors automobile.

And finally, Pete Hines from Bethesda Softworks finally puts his foot down regarding Fallout 4 news... sort of. These thrilling stories and more in this May 24th, 2014 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
