Dell unveils its Alienware Concept UFO handheld PC
At CES 2020, Dell unveiled a concept handheld gaming PC called the UFO. Specs have not been disclosed but Dell is marketing it as a “gaming-first” device that will also be able to do everything you can do on a normal Windows PC.
It has a form factor very similar to a Nintendo Switch with a dockable touchscreen and two detachable paddle controllers on the sides. A prototype model at CES was seen running Mortal Kombat 11 and World War Z with little to no lag.
Nairo wins the first Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament of the year
The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate competitive season got off to a great start at the S-tier Let’s Make Big Moves 2020 tournament, which saw Nairoby “Nairo” Quezada defeat Samuel “Dabuz” Buzby in the grand finals.
Fighting from the winners bracket, Dabuz was just one game away from sealing victory with the first set tied 2-2. However, Nairo was able to execute a perfect back-air to keep Dabuz off the platform, securing the bracket reset.
With the momentum on his side, Nairo took two quick games in the second set, including an incredible jump-spike combo to end game one.
For the third game, Dabuz switched characters, but it wasn’t enough to stop Nairo, who finished the set with a back throw to take the tournament.
Doctor Strange is coming to Marvel Super War
The Sorcerer Supreme will soon be arriving in the jungles of Wakanda to battle it out against the other heroes and villains of Marvel Super War.
Doctor Strange will be a Power class hero, and will have an array of magical abilities at his disposal, such as phasing out whenever he takes damage, a blink for his first skill, a long-ranged nuke for the second, a teleport for this third, and an ultimate that deals damage in an area of effect.
He will arrive on Jan 16, together with Season 1 of the Netease mobile MOBA.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon is coming to the Nintendo Switch
After 15 years, beloved Nintendo DS adventure series, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon is being remade for the Nintendo Switch as Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX.
The new version is a reimagining of the 2006 dungeon-crawling original with a new art style, revamped visuals, and a brand new storyline.
The new game will be out on the Nintendo Switch on March 6, 2020.
