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: Guitar Hero: On Tour, DS
We know this was out last week, but in our E3 frenzy we didn't get around to writing a heads-up. That plus the fact there isn't a great deal to pick from this week, means the DS' first Guitar Hero title is the VideoGamer.com recommendation of the week.

Unlike the home console versions, which carry a higher than usual price tag when including a guitar controller, this DS edition costs the same as a standard DS release and includes the Guitar Grip peripheral - a nifty device which allows players to take control of a virtual guitar using four fret buttons.

It's certainly not perfect, with the Guitar Grip proving a little uncomfortable to use, but it's the best available for DS gamers - that is except for Ubisoft's Jam Sessions which provides a guitar simulation but nowhere near the same level of fun.

And the rest...
