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."

Artist Reimagines Disney Princesses as Characters in 'Game of Thrones'

deviantARTist Sam Tsui a.k.a. DjeDjeHuti created a brilliant series of two fandoms melded into one gallery, and the result is spot-on. Who knew that so many characters in one universe had a doppelgänger in the other?

This might be the best and most unanticipated voice swap of all time.

Don't watch the video above if you're anti-spoilers. In it, Robert Kirkman makes a joke about a main character death from The Walking Dead comic books that they've been hinting at all of Season 5. Also, Josh McDermitt (Eugene) is pretty funny.

Too bad he's not a scientist.
