Would anyone know how I could use the API to retrieve the images of the games in a franchise? It would seem this would do it...

http://www.giantbomb.com/api/franchise/508/?api_key=[API KEY]&format=jsonp&field_list=games&json_callback=JSON_CALLBACK

But, this only returns the game names and IDs, and no images. Is there a way for me to add the image field to the request somehow?

Thanks a bunch.

Is this what you want ? The images at last :

api/franchise/508/?api_key=[**key**]&format=json&field_list=games,image,concepts

That would only include the image of the franchise itself, not for the individual games in the franchise.

This page does exactly what I'm asking: http://www.giantbomb.com/mario-party/3025-508/games/

Perhaps this page is making an API call that isn't exposed us developers? Can any devs from Giant Bomb confirm if this is true?

For that you can chain APIs

Grab game->api_site_url

Call api_site_url->image

That way you can get that game's image, thats just vivid descrip of how I would have done it using loops
