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.

Worth a look

It's another drab week as far as new releases go, but there are a few titles that are at least worth considering should you be feeling particularly flush. Phantasy Star Portable for the PSP offers a surprisingly solid take on the classic multiplayer RPG series, delivering the kind of co-op fun the Monster Hunter series had monopolised on Sony's handheld. Also worth a look is Dementium on the DS. This first-person survival horror is unlike anything else we've seen on the portable wonder and delivers more than a few chills when played using headphones.

Dementium - DS
Phantasy Star Portable – PSP

Also out this week
CID: The Dummy - PS2, PSP and PC
Dragonball Evolution - PSP
Mytran Wars - PSP
Rock Band Song Pack 2 - Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and Wii
Skate City Heroes - Wii
