You Can Now Change Your Battle.net Name Whenever You Want For $10

On Battle.net, it's possible to change your BattleTag free of charge as long as it's the first time you do it. Now, if you're still unhappy with your username, you can change it as many times as you like for a fee.

Blizzard writes, "Whether you've outgrown your BattleTag or you've decided it's simply time for a change, you can update your BattleTag with just a few clicks." By heading here, you can choose a new name for $10. Blizzard reassures users that friend lists will remain the same. If you've never changed your name before, you're still eligible for one free name change. You can choose whatever BattleTag you like as long as it coheres to Battle.net's naming policy.

In comparison, Xbox Live grants users the ability to change their gamertags once, whereas PlayStation Network doesn't allow any name alterations.

Valve Removes Digital Homicide's Games From Steam In Response To Controversial Lawsuit

Digital Homicide, a developer that made headlines earlier this year for suing game critic Jim Sterling, has filed a lawsuit against 100 Steam users after they left harsh reviews of the developer's games. Yesterday, Valve removed nearly a dozen of Digital Homicide's games from its digital store, stating that it "stopped doing business with Digital Homicide for being hostile to Steam customers."

After being granted a subpoena by a federal judge in Arizona, James Romine of Digital Homicide seeks the true identities of the 100 Steam users that left negative reviews. He is requesting $18 million for personal injury because of their criticisms of the developer's products, including The Slaughtering Grounds (pictured above).

Earlier this year, Jim Sterling was also sued by Digital Homicide after he criticized one of the developer's games in a video. The developer sued Sterling for $10.7 million, accusing him of "assault, libel, and slander" for his comments.

about X hours ago from

Geralt sure is getting a lot of a love this week. After hearing about Poland getting its own Witcher stamp featuring Geralt, our favorite mutant monster slayer is now also getting his own life-like figure.

The $770 statue, which stands 26" tall, features Geralt conquering a defeated enemy, and standing over its dismembered head. It's gruesome in the best way, with Geralt looking absolutely fierce. The polystone statue features high-quality resin, which gives a life-like effect to his skin.

The figure is currently available for pre-order, and is estimated to ship in 2017 between July and September. You can go here to pre-order

Replay – Siren

about X hours ago from

Join us as we take a look at the bizarre stealth-horror PlayStation 2 game, Siren.

Originally released in 2004, Siren follows a collection of characters gifted with the ability of "Sightjacking" which allows them to see through the eyes of others. It's a survival horror game that uses the digitized faces of real actors to create creepy performances in foggy, unwelcoming environments. It's a weird one with lots of accidental humor, but some genuinely scary stuff – basically the perfect game for Replay.

For part two, Andrew Reiner, Jeff Cork, Brian Shea, and I do some competing out on the water and punish those foolish enough to try and spend a relaxing day on the lake.
