Stadia may have been a failure, but that hasn’t stopped Google from continuing to try in the gaming world. They have recently started testing “playable games”. These are the games that can be played directly in the Youtube app. Anyone participating in the test will see this on their home page. There’s been no word yet on what games will be offered, but it’s expected to be the casual arcade game Stack Bounce. This partly indicates the target group for which the playable items will be intended.
Steam helps PlayStation fans
Playing Steam games using a PlayStation controller is nothing new, but finding out that such a game wasn’t supported by PlayStation controllers can be quite annoying. They’re starting to do something about it at Valve. Starting next month, we’ll be able to see which controllers you can play this game with on the game’s Steam page. The information will specifically explain whether you can play with Xbox, PS4 DualShock and PS5 DualSense controllers and whether they can be wireless as well.
Fewer matches in October
October will be a very busy month for gamers. Then release dates are set for dozens of games like Detective Pikachu Returns, Forza Motorsport, Lords of the Fallen, and Sonic Superstars. Ubisoft recently announced that the release date of Assassin’s Creed Mirage has been postponed to October 5. Alan Wake 2 also wanted to avoid crowds and postponed it to October 27. While Super Mario Wonder and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 are both scheduled to hit the streets on October 20, THQ Nordic has also decided to avoid the month altogether. Alone in the Dark has been postponed to January 16, 2024.
Roblox is coming to PlayStation
The hugely popular Roblox game is making its way to PlayStation. The game was released in 2006 for PC and received a mobile port for iOS and Android in 2012 and 2014. It took until 2015 for the game to receive a console release, but only for Xbox One. And while Nintendo hasn’t got a copy yet, PlayStation players will get the chance to play the game starting in October!
Stray is getting an animated movie
Stray, which has won awards such as Best Independent Game and Best Debut Independent Game, is getting a film adaptation. Game publisher Annapurna Interactive is moving the project to its own animation studio, Annapurna Animation. Robert Byrd, co-president of animation, sees a lot of potential in the story. He calls it a buddy comedy about a cat and a robot. Stylistically, they focus on “evil hope,” which uses positivity, goodness, and optimism as rebellious weapons. After the success of Super Mario Bros and The Last of Us on HBO, it’s exciting to wait and see what the film adaptation will bring for Stray.

In this turtle game, you play as Michelangelo, the last surviving Ninja Turtle.
