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.


Two games at complete polar opposites of each other this week, with the long-awaited Guild Wars 2 and this year's instalment of Madden. Guild Wars 2 looks set to be the biggest MMO released since The Old Republic and should do considerably better in the long term thanks to an existing fan base from the first game. Madden NFL 13 is unlikely to get too many people excited over here in the UK, but if you're a fan of throwing pigskin virtually you don't have many other options.
