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 (Thursday in this case) 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.


Recommendation of the Week: Space Siege, PC

The summer new release drought is almost over, with September onwards looking like one of the busiest release periods in years, but that doesn't help this week's line-up look any more appealing. The pick of a disappointing bunch is SEGA's Space Siege. It's essentially a sci-fi follow-up to Gas Powered Games' Dungeon Siege. When we saw the game many months ago it showed promise but early reviews suggest it's not the spectacular space RPG we hoped it would be. While not a glowing recommendation then, if you're after some new action RPG PC gaming Space Siege will be right up your street.
