Rockstar has unveiled a trio of new shots of its retro-fuelled fist-fest The Warriors, the ages-in-the making free-roaming fighter inspired by the cult movie of the same name.
While there is still little in the way of firm info known about the game, we're expecting it to have elements of prior Rockstar games like and , just with added bandanas.

This latest World of Warcraft expansion provides players with some pursuits that are more commonly associated with first-person shooters, such as that perennial favourite capture the flag.
Once within the Battlegrounds playing field - which was apparently designed by one of the level designers from the original Quake, although Blizzard wouldn't confirm which one (John Romero, maybe?) - players simply locate a minigame hub and wait to join in the merriment.

The Rockstar PR machine has kicked into life again today with the result of the first proper screenshots of The Warriors. However, in typically enigmatic fashion, the GTA publisher hasn't released any new information on the game.
What we do already know, however, is that the game's storyline is set before the cult classic (and entirely cheesy) 1979 gang flick, which follows New York gang The Warriors as they attempt to escape from the enemy turf of the Upper Bronx back to their home territory
As European players of Blizzard's hugely popular MMORPG were having their first taste of the game's controversial Honor system over the weekend, World of Warcraft's lead designer, Kalgan, told the game's official site forums that Blizzard are considering implementing a dishonor system to counter some of the problems that players have experienced since the Honor patch was introduced.
The Honor system, which offers rewards for killing members of the enemy faction, has been widely opposed by
After hearing whispers of Rockstar's take on cult movie The Warriors for what seems like years, we've finally got hold of some solid details of what the PS2 and Xbox title will entail.
Not only that, we've also uncovered the first ever shots of the game in action (albeit in dodgy scanned-in-from-a-magazine stylee).

Blizzard has today announced that over 1.5 million subscribers have now signed up for their massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft.
And, incredibly, the total number of people playing at any one time has peaked at over 500,000. That's a whole lot of MMORPGing.
World of Warcraft debuted in the US in November and finally reached Europe in February, where it has since garnered over 500,000 active subscribers and a peak of 230,000 subscribers playing
Blizzard Entertainment has exiled over a thousand players from its MMORPG World of Warcraft following an investigation into what it calls 'gold farming'.
Basically, gold farming is a practice whereby users spend all their time collecting - or 'farming' - large quantities of Warcraft gold for the purpose of selling it on to other players for real-world cash.

The Smackdown wrestling series has survived the legal wrangles between grappling supremos WWE and the games' publisher THQ, gamesradar.com can exclusively reveal.
While THQ originally signed up for the licence to produce WWE-themed games until December 2009, a cast major doubt over the future of THQ's critically and commercially successful Smackdown franchise.
But a source at THQ has today revealed that they have already been briefed on the next five WWE games - none of which, as yet, have
Stuff Jean Rousseau, Karl Marx and Stevie Wonder. Forget all those philosophers and idealists who dream of societies 'living together in perfect harmony'. If you want to see how nasty, brutish and short life really is, take a peek into the world of MMORPGs. Mugging, murder, violence and exploitation are everyday events in these fantasy worlds and, in WoW, so are the high-tech crimes of gambling and spamming, or they were until Blizzard stepped in to ban them. The problem was that 'casino'
was probably the most successful transfer from tabletop to desktop since Wes Cherry thought about making a Windows version of Solitaire for PC, although it was probably about . After numerous clumsy conversions of Games Workshop's world of Warhammer, Relic's realtime strategy game converted more gamers to the delights of Space Marines than a holy water cannon. So the announcement of an expansion pack, called Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War - Winter Assault, is as inevitable as the backfiring of
