Friday Is For Screenshots

GTA 4 Lost & Damned, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Halo Wars, Noby Noby Boy. It's an asset extravaganza!

For whatever reason, a huge pile of screenshots was released today for games I really want to play. So here they are, assembled for your clicking pleasure.

I'll also take this chance to let you know that the Guys Upstairs have pushed out some rather elite new image-embedding features, the results of which you see below. You can use these same image tools in your forum posts, blogs, guides -- anywhere you embed images, really. Also, yes, I said elite. What is this, 1997?

GTA IV: The Lost and Damned


As we posted yesterday, the first GTA IV add-on is now set for a February 17 release date and comes in at a modest $20. Why modest, you ask? I pegged this one at $30, easy, and since they're saying it will be a third as long as the original game, that sounds like a pretty good bang for your buck.



Star Wars: The Old Republic


All quiet on the BioWare front for the time being, but these shots at least give you more of a sense of the art direction the team is going in. Plus, I think the lightsabers are getting a little smaller, thankfully. You get a bonus wallpaper here because our embed tool likes to wrap every six images.




Halo Wars


Microsoft announced today that Ensemble's Halo RTS has just gone gold in advance of the release in late February, and a demo with two campaign missions and one multiplayer map will be hitting Xbox Live on February 5.


They've also started a series of interview-style documentary videos on Halo Wars; we posted the first one, so go take a look.


Noby Noby Boy


Namco Bandai put out a release yesterday that this one--the first new game from Keita Takahashi since he created Katamari Damacy--will be hitting the PlayStation Network on February 19 at the surprisingly generous price of $4.99. At that price, how can you not buy it?!


While I was on Namco's FTP, I also grabbed these new shots of Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2. Enjoy?



SimAnimals


Yeah, don't ask. Ryan is weirdly interested in this game, for some reason. Here's shots from the Wii and DS versions.

Hmm...those rabbits do appear to be performing a romance dance. Maybe this is a game I can appreciate after all.

hmm.. needs moar pics of Left 4 Dead....

For some reason, I think TOR will fail hard.

Edited by DiGiTaL_SiN

That's enough screenshots for a whole week!

BTW; Only slightly interested in GTAIV: The Lost and Damned.

Posted by RHCPfan24

Yeah! Actively using the photo table feature FTW!

Posted by Snail

Star Wars is looking GOOD!

Posted by IceColdGamer

Star Wars looks entertaining but not for a monthly fee. I think they should have stayed on course for Single Player installments of the KOTOR series, rather then un-necessarily go the MMORPG route.

Interested in Lost & The Damned only. 

Posted by Sabata

Fuck yeah, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2!

Posted by theuncannygiraffe

Shiny. I'm liking the KOTOR look, but I can't see me gng down the monthly payment route.

Posted by Scooper

Can't wait for The Old Republic.

Posted by Reetesh

Say what? Namco's FTP? Man.. you guys have all these crazy sources.. I guess you could make an interesting post on the ways (other than email and post) that these guys give things to you..

bring on the gundams!

Posted by spiceninja

The Old Republic looks fantastic. I can't wait to play it.

I love bioware but

Star Wars: The Old Republic

looks horrid ATM, the combat especially

Terminate (but) Stay Resident
I would argue that these image editing tools are actually 1337.

Now let's play Trade Wars 2002 like it's 1993! Come on! I've got the WWIV BBS, you've got the 2400 baud modem. Put your mouse driver in high memory and let's do this!

Can't wait for the GTA IV DLC.

...What? The game came out the beginning of November...

Wonderful SWtOR screens! The lightsabers are looking much better too! Man, I really hope so much that BioWare can pull this off. It has such amazing potential.

Dear God, what is that bear doing to that poor owl! Flasher, Flasher!

Posted by Hef

ugh...stop making gundam and dynasty warrior games. Especially the combination of the two.

Posted by zityz

GTAIV-good
Star Wars:the old republec- also good.


Sim animals- not so much.

Posted by MeatSim

GTA 4: LD and Star Wars: TOP are looking nice so far.

Posted by CallMeRotten

Really looking looking forward to The Lost and Damned, especially after watching the entire first season of Sons of Anarchy. I like Bioware, they do good work..well Jade Empire felt like it could have been so much more, but KOTOR was a fine game..although I can't help but cringe whenever I see another company taking a whack at an MMO, especially when the franchise has a huge (understatement) following. Galaxies was complete crap, I tried to like that game..as much as I would love to see some more variety in this genre and to actually see someone provide a real alternative to WoW, I gotta play the "I'll believe when I see it" card.

Make me give a damn about Star Wars again Bioware..I dare you!

Posted by PrintedCrayon

How can nobody be excited by Noby Noby Boy!?

That game looks like it'll retain all of the wonderful madness from Katamari, and then add in some more!
GTA IV: The Lost and The Damned is going to be sweet.
Hopefully SW:TOR will be a great MMORPG as well.
High hopes for all of these games!

Brad, Brad, Brad. If this was 1997, you wouldn't have called it "elite". You would have unironically called it "1337" or "l33t" or something equally retarded.

TOR baby!

Can't wait for that GTA IV add-on.

CANNOT WAIT FOR THE LOST AND THE DAMNED

The screen-shots of Noby Noby Boy - why do those chefs have chins like butts, and why are they riding a giant carrot? What's with the phallic looking extension to the mushroom house in the background? It seems so wrong in a way that demands attention.

Posted by Gregomasta

Noby Noby boy looks like a rough saliva trip.

Posted by carlthenimrod

I really hope they keep the size of those lightsabers down. They look really goofy oversized. I never remember people complaining about the size of the lightsabers in Star Wars Galaxies. People complained about a lot of things but the size of the lightsabers wasn't one of them.

Posted by Dudacles

Cool, a demo for Halo Wars sounds nice.

Posted by chapman12

I may be a sucker to thier franchise but wooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh yer halo wars

I think Star Wars the Old republic, will turn out really great...
Bioware (since 2004) as come through with every game...From KOTOR 1, Jade Empire, and Mass Effect. Each was better than the last, and I think it might be the same this time, unless Mass Effect 2 comes out before TOR comes out. Mass Effect 2 will be awesome.
