Weekly Dose of Gaming News: Playdate & You Suck At Parking
Hey, there I'm back for more weekly gaming news.
Today we start off with a console! Sure it's something to play games on but this one's a little different. Meet the Playdate : it's a yellow square console that's the size of a post-it pad made by the developers at Panic. It's got an a button, b button, d-pad, Wi-fi, bluetooth, usb-c charging port, a headphone jack, and the coolest part i think is a crank seriously a crank on the side that you use to control the games makes you think of the play date as an upgraded form of a fidget spinner right it's got a mono speaker and reflective black and white display works as a nice low power clock when you're not using it too now let's discuss the games on this pocket size console what's so unique about this is the season a whole season is 24 free games that cater to a lot of genres however you won't get them all at once you'll start to receive two games every week for a span of 12 weeks as they are sent to you over Wifi in the works also is a play date developer site where you will also be able to make your own playdate games the software will be free to download and side loading of games directly to your play date is easy which means you can also play games other people make in between game seasons I'm not quite finished on this panic has also made a play-date stereo dock that acts as a charger a stereo bluetooth speaker and a pen holder with a matching yellow pen all yours for pre-order at $179 so shall we make it a playdate I think.
So I got a question for you would you rather suck at racing or parking? I'd rather suck at racing and prefer to be really good at You Suck At Parking. You suck at parking is a brand new racing game from happy volcano it's like American ninja meets fast and furious meets real life I'm not even close to joking the objective is to try and park your car into spaces as cleanly as possible the spaces aren't the ones you see in regular parking lots where they're all lined up nicely these spaces are either located on a cliff or ledge even in a slant position the catch is to only stop when you're sure to park on the space if you stop you won't be allowed to start the car again and some levels will have you on limited fuel like I said real life did i mention the obstacle courses yep you'll have slippery roads boosters jump pads swinging hammers ramps and even industrial fans making your parking all the more challenging you can customize your car pull off tricks like spinning mid-air and even drift you have to remember to not go too slow as your timer will jam up ruining your score watch out for the corners too because you might find yourself flying over the edge and costing you a life there will be a real life leaderboard which lets players try to beat each other's times the visuals on this game have a cartoony feel to it and the music i have to say is impressive both of which should make the experience all the more enjoyable something to really watch out for and put on your wish list youth second parking won the dev com indie awards 2021 as well as an honorable mention at the unfold games awards this year it launches next year for PC, XBOX, Playstation and Nintendo switch hopefully with this game we all become masters at parking.
