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 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.


Worth a look

We haven't been able to play the final version of each of these, but from what we've seen over the past few months both have the potential to be very good games. Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce can be fairly crudely described as Monster Hunter set in China, what with its four-player co-op and slaying of massive creatures, but its style is very different to Capcom's series. X-Men Origins: Wolverine looked pretty good when we played it a while back, so we're pretty confident the final game is going to be good fun. It's incredibly violent too, which is sure to please Wolverine fans who have seen him tamed in the X-Men movies.
