    Thanks to ExpressVPN for sponsoring our channel Visit for more information on AT&T 5G! Fans and critics have spoken and Genshin Impact is a hit! But… it’s recently been revealed that the game has a series of keywords and phrases banned from chat due to China’s regulations around media censorship. Of course this may not come as a surprise to those who already know that the game is made by a Chinese company – but since players in the west are restricted from those words as well it’s hard for many to ignore. China has obviously had a tight grip on anything made within the country that might threaten the notion of perfect national unity but this is another story in a long list about how China’s politics and its stance against free speech affects games that we play. Rest assured we won’t be censoring anything on today’s edition of Inside Gaming Daily!… well unless someone says !@#$… or like they [REDACTED] you know? Anyways, enjoy the show.

  • In This Story: Hong Kong

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
