TorrentFreak reported that Blizzard has filed a lawsuit against Germany-based cheating company Bossland (a company that Blizzard also sued over World of Warcraft "buddy bots") for an Overwatch cheating tool called "Watchover Tyrant."

"Defendants' sale and distribution of the Bossland Hacks in the United States has caused Blizzard to lose millions or tens of millions of dollars in revenue, and to suffer irreparable damage to its goodwill and reputation," Blizzard said in its complaint.

"Moreover, by releasing 'Overwatch Cheat' just days after the release of Overwatch, Defendants are attempting to destroy or irreparably harm that game before it even has had a chance to fully flourish," it added.

"Defendants not only know that their conduct is unlawful, but they engage in that conduct with the deliberate intent to harm Blizzard and its business," the developer said. "Blizzard is entitled to monetary damages, injunctive and other equitable relief, and punitive damages against Defendants,” the complaint reads."

A Georgia judge sentenced Kayla Dixon to 40 years in prison after she pled guilty to shooting a man over his Playstation 4. WSB-TV in Atlanta reports that Dixon gave her confession to the crime as part of a plea deal.

The horrific incident occured when Dixon and her boyfriend attempted to steal the Playstation 4 after 28-year-old Daniel Zeitz posted a listing for the console on Craigslist. Zeitz resisted, and Dixon shot him.

“I would trade anything, almost anything, to bring Daniel back. But I know I can’t,” she said in a statement to press. “I know he had plans. I wish I could tell him I’m so, so sorry that this happened, but I can’t.”

This is kind of awesome. Redditor Calycae says that two pros bet their very professional careers on the firmly held, and shared belief that 17-year-old Geguri is a plain old cheater in Overwatch. Blizzard reportedly confirmed that Geguri wasn't cheating, and now those two dudes are fresh out of the game..

They just couldn't believe that she's really this good. The young lady's stats are truly astounding. She boasts an 80% win rate, and a KDA of 6.31. 

Korean site, Inven, says that much of the suspicion players hold stems from Geguri's ridiculous accuracy. You can watch her in action, in the clip below:

EA Games and Maxis are ending all gender restrictions in the latest version of The Sims 4. According to Associated Press, over 700 pieces of content were locked based on gender before this change. That includes hairstyles, clothing and voice options and apparently a lot more. 

Maxis worked with LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD on the update. The game mechanics as well as the cosmetics of characters will be a little more gender fluid. Now characters can look however players choose AND change gender at any time and decide whether they can reproduce with other characters or not. Gender symbols will also be removed from the game's gallery feature. 

So far, the response has been mostly positive:

Access to secret menus sometimes called Ed Boon or EJB menus (after co-creator Ed Boon) have finally been found. It only took 23 years... 

This wasn't discovered in the past two days, as the man in the video says, but they were still found very recently. According to Eurogamer these menus were found late last year by the folks at a website called The Cutting Room Floor as they looked through the classic game's code. 

According to the video description, anyone can access this special menu on Mortak Kombat 1, 2 and 3 using these instructions:

The code is P1 Block (x times) then P2 Block (x times) then P1 Block (x times) etc...

MK1...

P1 (5), P2 (10), P1 (2), P2 (1), P1 (2), P2 (3), P1 (4)

MK2...

P1 (5), P2 (10), P1 (2), P2 (8), P1 (2)

MK3/UMK3...

P1 (5), P2 (10), P1 (3), P2 (1), P1 (2), P2 (2), P1 (3), P2 (4)
