Oversized gaming laptops are slowly starting to fade away. In its place are slimmer versions with slightly less gaming cues. The same is true for Dell’s G series. Introduced in the Philippines today are the new Dell G3, G5, and G7.

The Dell G7 15 (7590) is slim and powerful

Nothing personifies Dell’s new approach better than the G7 15. At 19.9mm, it’s one of the thinnest gaming laptops in the market.

It’s made with a three-piece metal construction making sure it stays strong despite its thin profile. Completing the look is a palm rest with brushed metal finish.

It’s also equipped with a quick-charging 60 or 90WHr battery to make sure you can continue gaming on-the-go.

The G7 15 will be available in Abyss Grey.

The Dell G5 15 & G5 15 SE (5590) won’t leave you wanting for ports

Next on the line are the Dell G5 15 and G5 15 SE. They follow the same sleek design without sacrificing performance.

Despite the slimmer profile, it’s not lacking in ports. The Dell G5 has a full-size HDMI 2.0 port that can plug into external monitors and supports up to 4K. There’s also Single-cable docking for video, data, and power with the laptop’s SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports. This laptop comes with a 60Whr integrated battery.

It is available in Deep Space Black color with blue accents. A special edition in Alpine White is also available.

The Dell G3 15 (3590) is a great value for getting started

Dell’s G3 15 delivers plenty of power and performance at a competitive price point. It has the new Game Shift feature enables maximum fan speed for optimal processor performance.

It has an S-curve thin-and-sleek design and narrow borders to accommodate larger component ports near the back. At 21.6mm thin, the G3 comes with a 51Whi integrated battery.

It is available in Eclipse Black.

No compromises

As far as specs go, here’s what you’re getting with the redesigned G series laptops.

All three models will have the 9th Gen Intel Core mobile CPUs, up to i7. That’s desktop-caliber performance delivering up to 5.0 GHz Turbo, 8 cores, and 16 threads to play demanding AAA games or complete taxing, creative workloads.

They also have NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX graphic cards up to 1660Ti. Graphics card options are GeForce GTX 1660Ti and RTX 2060 and 2070 graphics options.

Cyberpunk 2077 is already getting a sequel

Codenamed Orion

Published

on

Without a doubt, Cyberpunk 2077 faced one of the world’s most controversial launches for a video game. Though CD Projekt Red released several updates to fix the game’s reputation, the developer is already moving on to bigger projects. In a new tweet, CD Projekt Red has already confirmed development for Cyberpunk 2077’s sequel.

Earlier today, CD Projekt Red announced that the next Cyberpunk 2077 game will have the codename Orion. Unfortunately, the announcement doesn’t reveal much else about the upcoming project, except that it will “take the Cyberpunk franchise further and continue harnessing the potential of this dark future universe.”

Following a smattering of bugs and glitches on launch, Cyberpunk 2077 further progressed through its redemption story through patches and an upcoming DLC. However, that’s as far as the story goes. With the sequel’s development underway, it’s hard to imagine much more coming for the first game. Unlike No Man’s Sky (which suffered a similarly controversial launch), Cyberpunk 2077 is calling it early.

Besides the cyberpunk title, the developer also announced more updates for the future of the Witcher universe. The next major entry in the series is codenamed Polaris and will precede two more entries to create a new trilogy. Outside of the main series, the franchise is also getting Canis Majoris (a spin-off from the main series and developed by an external studio) and Sirius (a multiplayer game with a single-player campaign).

Finally, CD Projekt Red also teased a new franchise called Hadar. Unlike Cyberpunk or Witcher, Hadar will be an original setting, marking the developer’s first following the success of the preceding two franchises based on past properties.

Horizon Zero Dawn is likely getting a remaster

For the PlayStation 5

Published

on

How many remasters is too much? With newer hardware coming out, several developers have decided to update their old games to function more smoothly and gorgeously on modern consoles. However, there’s still an unresolved issue on where the industry should draw the line. Pending a resolution to that conundrum, here’s another remaster: Horizon Zero Dawn is likely getting a remastered edition.

According to sources in VGC and MP1ST, Sony is planning a PlayStation 5 remaster for Horizon Zero Dawn, the first game in the franchise. The upcoming edition will likely bring updated graphics and a few technical tweaks to the 2017 title.

For a while now, Sony has found a new obsession in remastering and remaking its old titles for the new console. The company has already released similar editions for the Spider-Man duology, for example. Besides remasters, PC ports are also making their way to Steam, creating a new market for Sony’s former exclusives.

Of course, one can argue whether Horizon Zero Dawn truly needs a remastered edition. For a 2017 title, the game still looks gorgeous even on newer hardware. Though there are graphical differences between the first title and its sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, Horizon Zero Dawn is still a beautiful game.

That said, the remastered edition is still likely coming, albeit at an unknown time. Also, the same source speculates that the franchise is getting a new multiplayer game sometime in the future. With the franchise’s success over the years, Sony is unsurprisingly going all-in on more Horizon titles, including a confirmed VR-exclusive game for the upcoming PSVR 2.
