This Week In Games: Red Dead Stranding

Howdy, partner.

If you’ve been waiting for Rockstar’s Wild West to finally come to PC, then this week is for you.

If you just have to see what Death Stranding is all about, you’ll finally be able to from this week. There’s a ton of footage that can’t be released until after the game’s launch too — the discussion later this week should be plenty fun.

There’s a few standouts on the PC too. Planet Zoo drops later this week, and there’s a new Need for Speed. The Switch gets a Professor Layton title and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, if you’re into Tokyo 2020 themed mini-games.

There’s definitely plenty to choose from. Here’s the full roster:

  • Death Stranding (PS4)
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 (PC)
  • Just Dance 2020 (Switch, PS4, Xbox One)
  • Planet Zoo (PC)

Just kidding.

It’s Garfield Kart.
