This 27-inch VA monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate is a bargain at $250

Monoprice has been my go-to vendor for various types of cables, but if I was in the market for a gaming monitor, I'd give this deal for a 27-inch VA display (2560x1440) a long, hard look. From what I can tell, it's a new entry in Monoprice's lineup (it replaces the TN model), with an aggressive price ($249.99) to boot. It's also been out of stock for a couple of weeks, but is now available.

Outward's first DLC will corrupt you on June 16

Outward is an unusual juxtaposition. It's a challenging, obtuse survival RPG that will happily let you fail time and time again. But it's also an RPG where you don't die. Maybe you'll be knocked unconscious and left for a kindly stranger to rescue. Maybe you'll get locked up in a mine, forced to work for slavers. It's punishing, but those failures are part of the story.
