Hiya pricey readers, and welcome to a different spherical of Newsbytes. There isn’t a lot to speak about this weekend

Deer Farm Teases Q3 Launch For Shikhondo Pink Purgatory

I wasn’t capable of get round to an Exa preview this week (I additionally must do one thing comparable for Polycade), so it will suffice. A recreation developer often called Deer Farm has highlighted the upcoming arcade model of their shoot ’em up title Shikhondo Pink Purgatory, posting this trailer to Twitter. The title is a part of the Exa-Arcadia recreation choice and will probably be accessible “Q3,” which suggests any time now by means of September. This definitely will probably be an providing for extra hardcore gamers – this isn’t the sort of recreation I’d count on to ever see at an FEC. However, it definitely will do effectively in Japan, the place such video games nonetheless take pleasure in sturdy followings and strong earnings.

How the arcade construct will differ from the console variations (often called Shikhando Soul Eater and is on each main house platform on the market, plus Steam which isn’t talked about on their web site) does transcend the “Pink Purgatory” subtitle, together with a brand new UI, voice appearing and steadiness modifications that can make it acceptable for arcade enjoyable (will probably be capable of function in both vertical and horizontal modes).

Do Racer Video games Make For Dangerous Drivers?

H/T to Arcade Belgium for highlighting this text on the UK Telegraph that touts a brand new ballot to make some information and assist with a sluggish information day, I suppose. The ballot claims that individuals who play racing video video games on daily basis are worse drivers, as they apparently have horrible actual world driving data. I’m not satisfied that that is one thing that ought to be taken as gospel just like the headline proclaims – it’s not precisely following the scientific methodology to reach on the vaunted conclusion. However that by no means stops articles from being printed today.

In fact, it does appear logical that driving video video games could make for unrealistic expectations of the way you deal with a car on the highway, however anybody who has a little bit of time driving below their belt is aware of that it’s a really completely different expertise to have an actual automobile, with the load and physics throughout you versus a recreation pad.

If anybody was going to scientifically have a look at this, they’d even have to check it throughout a big number of drivers, as driving in Cruis’n Blast is sort of completely different from Mario Kart Arcade, which may be very completely different from Most Tune or Preliminary D, and many others.  I’ve a sense that the ultimate outcomes can be completely different from what that ballot claims, however what do you suppose? Have you ever ever double tapped the fuel and count on to have your automobile begin drifting round a nook (or to do a barrel roll)? I can’t say that I’ve…

We’ve talked about Overtake VR earlier than, having seen it at sure commerce exhibits, though I can’t recall if there was a trailer like this for it. This new trailer posted to YouTube by IGS highlights all the intense ACTION that you simply get within the recreation, one thing that I’ve joked earlier than ought to have this recreation referred to as Stunt Driver. Overtake VR is obtainable now and has been for some time, though I’m undecided how widespread it’s to search out right here within the West.
