Luxury fashion company Balenciaga will debut its next clothing collection in a video game on December 6th, according to WWD. Afterworld: The Age of Tomorrow is an âallegorical adventureâ set in the year 2031, in which âa hero avatar advances throughout distinct zones, motivated by tasks and interactions.â As game descriptions go itâs not the most detailed â it could apply to every video game from Super Mario through to Wolfenstein â but obviously the focus here is the companyâs fall 2021 collection. Input reports that the Afterworld will be playable through browsers.
Like many other industries, the world of fashion has had to reckon with how to drum up excitement in a year where big in-person launches are impossible. Approaches have…

Assassinâs Creed Valhalla will be able to run at 60fps on all next-gen consoles thanks to an update that Ubisoft is set to release on Thursday. With the new 1.0.4 title update, Ubisoft is adding a performance mode, which will let the game adapt resolution and graphics settings to maintain 60fps while youâre playing, and a quality mode, which will max out resolution and graphics settings to maintain 30fps.
Digital Foundry found thatAssassinâs Creed Valhalla sometimes dips below 60fps on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X (with the Series X doing so more often), and the game currently doesnât run higher than 30fps on the Xbox Series S, so the update seems like it should be a welcome upgrade. The new update is also supposed to address…
This is the lowest price we have seen on the AirPods Pro to date; normally, these wireless earbuds would set you back $249. This historically low price beats the previous best-ever price by $21.
The AirPods Pro offers a more customizable fit that includes three different silicon tip sizes, making it easier to fit in your ear canals, unlike the standard AirPods, which offer a âone size fits mostâ design. My colleague, Chris Welch, notes that the AirPods Pros are the best wireless earbuds on the market if you own an iPhone and/or…

When it comes to PC accessories, I always felt that Black Friday and Cyber Monday were some of the best times of the year to buy new PC-related products. If you are planning to upgrade or even build your very own PC, Black Friday is a good time to save money on the parts you need for your rig.
âHi, Iâm Rivers from the band, Weezer,â Rivers Cuomo says with a slight smile and a wave. He turns away from the camera for a bit, before launching into his best infomercial pitch. âImagine youâre on tour, and youâre sitting in your dressing room or your tour bus. Youâre backstage. You have stage fright, youâre […]
While SpaceX’s constellation of Starlink satellites is nowhere near its projected final size, the company has enough of the birds zipping around in low Earth orbit to start a limited testing period they call the Better Than Nothing Beta.

14 years ago in 2006, a group of ranchers in the Hell Creek Formation of Montana made a monumental fossil find: the largely-complete remains of a triceratops, who died right nearby the bones of a T. Rex, presumably in battle.
Ernest Cline’s long-awaited sequel to Ready Player One is out this week! My copy of Ready Player Two just arrived and I can’t wait to dive back into the Oasis. Meanwhile, here’s a bit from an interview with Ernie in Entertainment Weekly:

Apple isn’t often associated with super Black Friday deals. The company has long adopted a no-discount pricing strategy, maintaining their products at the same price all the time. But, while the Cupertino clan has historically been sales-averse, it doesn’t mean you can’t ever find discounts on even their most popular products. — Read the rest

AMD-based ultra-compact form-factor (UCFF) systems are slowly gaining market acceptance, with the Zen architecture slowly catching up with Intel on both the performance as well as power consumption front. AMD’s latest and greatest has been reserved for the high-end desktop market, with the parts meant for low-power / compact systems appearing a few quarters later. Zen 3-based desktop CPUs were introduced recently. However, it is only now that Zen 2-based parts with 12-25W TDP (Renoir APUs) have started to appear in compact desktop systems.
