Rounding up the Alienware May 2020 lineup are two powerful and portable gaming laptops. These two laptops prove that gaming power can come in relatively light packages. Sporting the latest processors and powerful GPUs, these devices fit gamers and content creators on the go!

Introducing the Alienware m15 R3 and Alienware m17 R3, steps up from the previous generation of Alienware M gaming laptops. Both laptops feature up to a 10th generation Intel Core i9-10980HK processor and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM. This alone is a configuration that will surely bring power for any task you throw at it.

The Alienware m15, however comes with an NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER Max-Q, which will dip gaming performance by a tiny bit.

For content creators, you can opt for the 4K UHD OLED panel that comes with Tobii Eyetracking technology for enhanced screen experiences.

Meanwhile, the Alienware m17 will come with an NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER, maxed out for the best gaming experience. It also comes with an option for both a 300Hz FHD display or a 4K UHD display, the latter coming with Tobii Eyetracking technology.

The Alienware m15 R3 and m17 R3 will be available in May 2020. The Alienware m15 will start at US$ 1,499.99, while the Alienware m17 will start at US$ 1,549.99.

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.
