Welcome to Heads-up, our 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 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


The Wii continues to receive Japanese RPGs while other consoles don't, but Pandora's Tower isn't in the same league as the recent Last Story or last year's excellent Xenoblade Chronicles. The game's mix of action and role-playing is decent, and the premise of a cursed young girl slowly becoming some kind of creepy monster is unique, but we've played far better on the Wii.

And the rest...

It's a poor week for new releases, with very little quality hitting shelves. Hardcore PC FPS Hard Reset is back with some extra content in the Extended Edition, while well-received Worms spin-off, Worms: Crazy Golf, gets a retail release at a budget price point.
