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

This week sees EA's sixth Dead Space game hit stores, although it's the third in the main series. Early buzz isn't great due to the feeling that the game has diverged too far from the original Dead Space experience, but we'll give you the full verdict tomorrow. Scribblenauts Unlimited is a more sure-fire quality experience, and a game well worth picking up if you're looking for new games for your Wii U.

And the rest...

First of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 is the other notable release this week, but we can't honestly recommend anyone picks this up, even if you're a fan of the manga.
