Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

Other the weekend we took a more in-depth look at Magic Leap's mixed reality headset and NVIDIA's RTX claims.

(FYI: If you'd prefer to get this in your inbox six days a week and of course you do, we have good news -- after a short break email signups are open again.)


This was the first satellite tournament in EA's Madden NFL 19 Classic.Mass shooting takes place at 'Madden 19' tournament in Florida

Multiple people have been killed and others injured at a mass shooting during a Madden Championship Series tournament at the GLHF Game Bar in Jacksonville, Florida. According to police, a man who participated in the event brought a gun into the venue and opened fire, killing two people and injuring nine others before taking his own life. A Twitch livestream of the tournament captured audio of the shooting shortly before the feed was cut off.

In a statement, EA said "The tragic situation that occurred Sunday in Jacksonville was a senseless act of violence that we strongly condemn. Our most heartfelt sympathies go out to the families of the victims whose lives were taken today and those who were injured."

While the company is emphasizing giga rays and RTX-OPS, games will need to be designed specifically to take advantage of ray-tracing. Until testing and reviews make the picture clearer, you might want to wait and see how it all shakes out.

Now that we have a better sense of what Magic Leap's $2,295 hardware is capable of, we can take a step back and consider what the company is actually trying to accomplish. As Magic Leap content officer Rio Caraeff told Engadget after a recent demo, "We wanted to focus on essentially a full-stack approach" including hardware, software and development environments for a new medium.
