Alienware likes to push the bar when it comes to their gaming machines. It doesn’t matter if it’s the design or the hardware inside; they want to push intense gaming to its limits. They’ve even launched a new gaming laptop with a name that best fits what it offers.

They call it the Alienware Area-51m R2, and no this isn’t a UFO from the depths of space. This is Alienware’s latest gaming machine that packs some serious heat in terms of gaming performance. For one thing, this machine comes with up to a 10th generation Intel Core i9-K processor and up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM for unbelievable productivity. It also comes with up to an NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER that is responsible for all that heavy-duty gaming.

There are two options for the display at your disposal. Competitive gamers will like the 17.3-inch 300Hz FHD display, while most content creators can opt for the 4K UHD display. Both displays have a 100% sRGB color gamut supported with Tobii Eyetracking technology. It also comes with up 4TB of M.2 SSD storage to accommodate a pool of games and gameplay footage at your dispoal.

The Alienware Area-51m R2 will be available by June 2020, starting at US$ 3,049.99.

Netflix’s Blood of Zeus now in the game Immortal Fenyx Rising

In a themed quest called “A tribute to family”

This crossover just makes so much sense. Netflix’s animated series Blood of Zeus is in Ubisoft’s Immortal Fenyx Rising. Players will be able to dive into a Blood of Zeus–themed quest and purchase an all-new character pack and weapon pack.

From January 21 to January 28, in a Blood of Zeus–themed quest called “A tribute to family”, players will take on two evil creatures of another world: Chimera and Cerberus. Upon completion of the quest, players will earn the Eagle pendant and all-new character customization options tied to “Blood of Zeus.”

The weapon pack contains Blood of Zeus–themed skins for your Sword, Axe and Bow. Meanwhile, the Blood of Zeus character pack lets you walk in the footsteps of the Amazonian warrior Alexia.

Immortals Fenyx Rising is a fresh game with an action and puzzle filled open world that has humor and Greek mythology enclosed into it. You might say it can be a mix of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Zelda: Breath of wild.

Animal Crossing is launching a ColourPop makeup collection

Featuring your favorite characters

Published

on

Despite a full slate of exciting games last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the most influential games of 2020. The island life simulator allowed everyone stuck at home to connect with another despite the pandemic. However, even with the gameplay, the game is just so darn cute. If you wholeheartedly agree (and why wouldn’t you?), Nintendo is collaborating with ColourPop for an Animal Crossing-themed makeup collection.

In its announcement post on Twitter, Nintendo unveiled four color palettes in the collection. The forefront of the collection features Isabelle’s yellow complexion and her cute-as-a-button pink top. If you’re looking for something more inspired, Blathers and Celeste have their own color palette featuring combination of their colors. For the stylish, the Able Sisters shine in purple and lilac. If, however, you’re looking for capitalist chic, Tom Nook has his own palette featuring his cash-money green.

The Animal Crossing x ColourPop collection will launch on January 28. Though only four palettes were showcased, the collection might include further characters. Besides the main characters around your island, the game also has a wide variety of cute potential villagers.
