Welcome to Heads-up, VideoGamer.com's weekly feature which gives you an at-a-glance run-down on the games you'll be able to buy or rent this weekend. Every Tuesday 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 splash the cash.

Recommendation of the Week: Devil May Cry 4, PC
It's slim pickings this week, and expect even less to chew on next week. There is at least one game worthy of our recommendation though, Capcom's Devil May Cry 4 for PC. The home console versions provided fantastic fun and you can expect the same and then some with this PC release.

Capcom hasn't settled for a straight-up port and should be commended for having put in some effort for the PC gamers out there. New additions include Turbo Mode which increases game speed for even more insane action and Dark Knight Mode which increases the number of enemies on screen. The game also supports up to 120 frames per second, both DirectX 9 and DirectX 10, and is fully compliant with Games For Windows.

In fact if you've got the hardware to play it and a decent controller, the PC version of DMC4 may just be the definitive version available.

And the rest...
Doodle Hex (DS)
Ferrari Challenge (PS2)
Fighter Pilot 2 (PC)
Jewel Quest II (PC)
Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2 (PSP)
Secret Agent Clank (PSP)
Top Spin 3 (DS)
