It’s time to honk in co-op.

There’s lots of games to pay attention to this week, but the one that many will happily explore is the Melbourne-made Untitled Goose Game. Not only is it launching on Steam this week, but the game will get a free co-op multiplayer update on all platforms, giving everyone a reason to be an avian shithead all over again.

There’s a lot of classics headlining this week in games too, depending on what you grew up with. For console fans, you might like to know that Panzer Dragoon Remake is appearing this week — albeit only on Steam. It’s looking crisp and clean, and sometimes you just need a good, basic rail shooter in your life.

Along with Panzer DragoonCalifornia Games 2 and Ironseed are back this week. If you like sports games, Tennis World Tour 2 (from Aussie devs Big Ant) is out on the big consoles and PC. (The Switch version drops on October 15.) There’s the yard-building simulator Ducktopia, a game all about managing a city of feathered friends.

Soldat 2 and Rebel Galaxy Outlaw both hit Steam this week. The supremely talented Indonesian devs at Mojiken are back with When The Past Was Around, and the makers of 80 Days have their latest title, Pendragon.

But that’s not all. Do you want some more Serious Sam? Then Serious Sam 4 is out this week. Also, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 is back? And the Switch is getting a ton of banging indies, including the absolutely gorgeous WartileArt of rally is out as well, and you can check out how I feel about that below.

It’s a busy week. Let’s go.

Anyway, decent lineup this week. Goose is gonna be a cracker for those who need a laugh, but there’s a lot of really solid titles to look forward to. What do you think — see anything you like?
