Welcome to Heads-up, our weekly feature which gives you an at-a-glance run-down of 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

We've been waiting ages for Aliens: Colonial Marines, accepting numerous delays in the hope that the final game would be the xenomorph-surviving experience fans have wanted for years. The game hits stores tomorrow alongside reviews, so we can't tell you whether or not SEGA and Gearbox has delivered. Take a risk on what you've seen so far or hold off on your purchase until you've read our review.
