Silly season is officially back people. And how do we know? Because the latest expansion for Destiny is out.
It's not just Rise of Iron that kicks off this week, however: there's a new Batman episode, Jazzpunk gets a console release, and Firewatch hits Xbox One.
Dear Esther: Landmark Edition (PS4)
What is it? Console re-release of one of the older walking simulators. Should you care? Depends on how much you liked Gone Home and Everybody's Gone To The Rapture.
The Bunker (PS4)
What is it? A live-action psychological horror game. Should you care? Horror fans should check this out. Live action games don't come along very often.
NBA 2K17 (PS3, 360, PC, PS4, XBO)
What is it? Basketball. Again. Should you care? If you didn't pre-order last week, it's officially out on the 21st Australian time. You can probably still just buy and play right away, though.
Wheels of Aurelia (PC)
What is it? A narrative-driven story about going on a roadtrip through the Western coast of Italy. Should you care? One for anybody who liked 80 Days.
Destiny: Rise of Iron/Destiny: The Collection (PS4/XBO)
What is it? The latest coat of paint for Destiny. Should you care? If you've skipped Destiny up until now and you like these kinds of shooters, now's probably a good time to jump in.
Cossacks 3 (PC)
What is it? The remake of a classic RTS featuring tens of thousands of medieval units duking it out. Should you care? I'll be checking this out for sure. I'm stunned it even got made, honestly.
What is it? An adventure game about being a spy and basically losing your marbles. Should you care? It's bonkers as fuck. Get it now; it's available on PC as well.
Slain: Back From Hell (PS4)
What is it? A pixel-art heavy metal inspired 2D platformer. Should you care? I feel like I've written about this already. Anyway, it's out digitally this week.
Tokyo Twil,ight Ghost Hunters Daybreak Special Gigs (PS3, PS4, Vita)
What is it? A visual novel about battling spirits throughout Tokyo with a funky combat system. Should you care? This looks ... real unusual. Check out the trailer first.
Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition (XBO)
What is it? The best version of the classic fighter. Should you care? More people should. The modern retake on KI has been nothing short of fantastic.
Batman: The Telltale Series Episode 2 (PS3, 360, PC, PS4, XBO)
What is it? Round 2 of Bruce Wayne's troubles. Should you care? I'll wait until the whole series is out.
What is it? Console launch of a really neat looking twin-stick shooter. Should you care? Fans of Geometry Wars will enjoy this.
Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity (PS4)
What is it? A bullet-hell crossed with a dungeon crawler aRPG. Should you care? Check out some footage. It looks a lot cooler than it sounds.
Skylight Freerange 2: Gachduine (Vita)
What is it? It says it's a 3D open-world RPG. Should you care? This was the only footage I found. It does not look good.
Firewatch (Xbox One)
What is it? An adventure in a national park that's about people. Should you care? Plenty of people loved it. Read this from Mark, and then go play it.
Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade (PC)
What is it? The full release of a Warhammer 40K FPS MMO. Should you care? There's only NA servers right now, which is a bit of a dealbreaker for an FPS.
Virginia (PC, PS4)
What is it? A single-player story about searching for a missing person. Should you care? Our UK compatriots are excited for this one. Keep an eye on it.
Forza Horizon 3 (PC, XBO)
What is it? Driving utes and dirt buggies around Forza Horizon's version of "Australia". Should you care? Ever enjoyed a Need for Speed game? Any arcade racer ever? Then yes. It looks a treat. You'll only get it this week if you pre-order, however (it comes out next week otherwise).
Zenith (PC, PS4)
What is it? An isometric 3D aRPG featuring a sassy wizard. Should you care? Got doubts about the humour. Could be fun though.
What is it? A strategy game about trying to dominate the whole world. Should you care? Looks like it'll appeal to those who enjoyed DEFCON.
That's it for this week. Did I miss anything? Are you picking up Destiny or anything else? Let us know!
