Elsinore is a Shakespearean Groundhog Day

It must be frustrating to create something with a time-looping premise when everyone talking about it is immediately going to compare it to Bill Murray film. Anyway, Elsinore is Hamlet meets Groundhog Day. It looks very neat.

The Division 2's first free episode is out now

The Division 2's first free episode, DC Outskirts: Expeditions, is live now, letting agents venture further afield and visit the Manning National Zoo and a Black Tusks base hidden deep in the woods.

Save a mighty $950 on this MSI GE63 Raider gaming laptop, with an RTX 2070 inside

You can save almost $950 on a MSI GE63 Raider laptop through NewEgg until Monday July 29, and the whole thing costs a damn good $1350 overall. This deal is, to quote Doc Brown from Back to the Future, "some serious s**t". It’s a good piece of kit, too: Packing an Intel i7 8th Gen 8750H CPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card, an NVMe SSD, and 1TB HDD, it’s no slouch from a technical perspective. You usually see 2070 laptops, often without the dual-storage solution, way closer to $1700-1900. Oh, and one more thing: you’ll get a free MSI Air backpack that’s (apparently) worth $99. So that’s cool, I guess. It is specifically designed to protect laptops when you carry them around.

China's anti-addiction regulations put American game developers in an awkward moral situation

Despite being the largest market for PC games in the world, China's PC gaming scene is also the most heavily censored and regulated. Not only do game developers have to navigate a complicated bureaucracy to get approval to release games, they also have to ensure those games adhere to aggressive rules against violence and gore, spiritualism, and political messaging that isn't aligned with China's communist values.
