Chris Livingston, Staff Writer: I got into The Division 2 for a while this year, and while it seems like a weird fit for Star Wars, I'm still interested to see what they do with it. I love the detail in The Division 2—walking down any given street is always a feast for the eyes, even if that feast is mountains of trash from a collapsed society. I didn't really care for most of the main missions—they're way too long for my tastes, and I was playing solo.

However, it will be forced to concede in multithreaded performance, as even the top chip, the Core i9 11900K, will arrive with two fewer cores than its predecessor at eight cores and 16 threads. That's half the count of AMD's 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X. … [Read more...] about The 7 announcements from CES 2021 that every PC gamer should know about

The KEEP is something I actually saw last year, but I still think about it every day. The Keep Smart Storage may look like a clock, but it's actually a safe to store your weed, and I guess other medication, but mostly weed. KEEP would have been perfect for me back in college when I thought a chin-goatee and boot-cut jeans with sneakers was a good look. … [Read more...] about Somehow only one of these funny looking CES gadgets is a sex toy
