A look ahead to this week's new releases.
Welcome to Heads-up, our weekly feature which gives you an at-a-glance run-down of the games you'll be able to buy or rent this weekend. Every Monday we'll pick out the best of the bunch, link to our reviews and previews and keep you in the video game loop so you have enough time to pre-order for Friday's post. Time to smash open your piggy bank so you can spend its coin-shaped guts.
Worth a look
It's a week of good but not great games, with all platforms getting at least one new title of note. The biggest of the bunch is Epic's Gears of War: Judgment, which the hardcore following are likely to enjoy but we found it to be a bit of a stopgap. Dead or Alive 5 Plus is a Vita port of the existing PS3/Xbox 360 game, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate arrives on Wii U and 3DS to a small army of European fans, Most Wanted finally hits the Wii U but with some new features, and Activision's The Walking Dead looks like it needed a few more months in the oven.
