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.


Recommended: Bionic Commando - PC

It's taken a while for Capcom's third-person swinger to arrive on the PC, but now it's here all action junkies should definitely take a look. With keyboard and mouse controls the shooting has been made slightly easier, and targeting objects with your grapple is less problematic. We still preferred using an Xbox 360 controller as the swinging feels more natural, but the choice is yours. The PC game can also look considerably sharper than the console versions, assuming you've got a PC that's up to it.
