CES 2024: HyperX has a new line of gaming products just for kids

HyperX's mini headsets and controller.

At CES 2024, HP unveiled a suite of new products un der its HyperX brand. Some of the most interesting new accessories are the Cloud Mini Headsets, Clutch Tanto Mini Wired Controller, and Pulsefire Haste 2 Mini mouse, all of which are designed to be easier for children to use.

Smaller in design than a normal pair of gaming headphones, the wired and wireless versions of the HyperX Cloud Mini Headsets have “volume-limiting capabilities” that make them safer to use for younger players, as well as a microphone that can be easily flipped to mute. These headsets launch this spring for $50 each.

The Clutch Tanto Mini Wired Controller is equally compact, and it boasts a mobile mode switch, a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack, and compatibility with the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Windows PCs, Steam Deck, and Android phones. It will also come out sometime this spring for $40.

For children who prefer PC gaming or those who just want a really lightweight mouse, HP also introduced the HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 Mini mouse, which is small in size, but packs a 100-hour battery life while also featuring HyperX’s 26K Sensor, dustproof switches, adaptable grip tap, and dual wireless mode connectivity. HP will release it later this month for $80. Those looking for a way to carry all of these devices around might also want to check out the Knight and Delta Gaming Backpacks that HyperX plans on releasing in February for $70 and $40, respectively.

HyperX had even more to show off at CES 2024 too, including new keyboards. We went hands-on with the upcoming Alloy Rise Gaming Keyboard, and believe “it might be the go-to gaming keyboard in 2024.”

All Trinkets in Tales of Kenzera: Zau, explained

Your main upgrades in a metroidvania like Tales of Kenzera: Zau will always be your new abilities. These transform the way you move and fight, but there are other ways you can make Zau a more powerful shaman. Trinkets are introduced right away, but aren't given away as freely as you might think. Each one requires you to overcome a small trial that tests your platforming abilities off the main path. Technically, you can miss every single one aside from the one you begin the game with. Even though there are a few fast travel points, backtracking isn't a particularly fun experience. Here are all the Trinket locations in Tales of Kenzera: Zau, plus which ones you should equip.
All Trinket locations
You can see which zones have Trinkets on the map, and for the most part, you will be able to grab them as you navigate through them for the first time. Here are each of the Trinket locations roughly in the order you should naturally be able to get them.

This is the Trinket you begin the game with and is equipped by default.

How to start The Forgotten Kingdom DLC in Remnant 2

Remnant 2 is a massive game that already boasts nearly endless replayability, but that isn't stopping developer Gunfire Games from adding even more to do in the popular looter shooter. The game's new DLC, The Forgotten Kingdom, provides players with a substantial amount of extra stuff to check out, such as new biomes to explore, an additional archetype known as The Invoker, and plenty of fresh enemies to take down. If you're ready to see all of what The Forgotten Kingdom DLC has to offer, read on to learn how to access it from within the game.
How to start The Forgotten Kingdom DLC
The first step in accessing The Forgotten Kingdom DLC is to ensure you've purchased and downloaded it. You can buy the standalone version from your respective storefront for $10, or you can opt to snag the $25 bundle, which includes The Awakened King, The Forgotten Kingdom, and another future DLC that has yet to be announced. If you intend to play the full trilogy of DLCs, the former is your best option, as you'll save five bucks off the total cost of all three.

Once you've purchased and downloaded the DLC, you'll be ready to access The Forgotten Kingdom by visiting a World Stone and opening Adventure Mode. You'll need to have completed the Yaesha biome at least one time. At that point, you can select "Reroll Adventure Mode" and choose The Forgotten Kingdom: One Shot on the right, which will notably give you exclusive DLC content your first time through. Keep in mind that while this initial run won't feature any older content, your subsequent playthroughs of Yaesha will weave DLC areas in with main campaign content.

All Baobab Tree locations in Tales of Kenzera

While it wasn't marketed as being a particularly punishing game, Tales of Kenzera: Zau is by no means easy. You will have plenty of environmental challenges that can instantly sap your life, and the enemies you face -- especially the bosses -- are no slouches. When you first begin, it will only take a couple of bad hits to send Zau to the land of the dead himself. Alongside the Trinkets you can unlock through hidden challenges around the map, there are also Baobab Trees where Zau can stop to reflect on his journey thus far, have a short dialogue with Kalunga, and get a small addition to his health bar. Like everything in the game, these trees aren't prohibitively hidden, but you could easily pass one by and have no idea where it was when trying to backtrack. These are all the Baobab Tree locations so you can max out your health bar.
All Baobab Tree locations
There are six Baobab Trees to find in Tales of Kenzera: Zau and each adds a small segment of health to your total. When you collect them all, you will roughly double your HP bar. Here are each of their locations in the rough order you should naturally find them in. Most can be picked up on your first time through that area.

This one is very hard to miss as it is directly on your critical path. If you do, you can fast travel to the nearby campfire to grab it.
