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.

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
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).
The shots in question have been hosted by a Warriors fan site and are taken from the new issue of US mag Game Informer.
The images aren't of the highest quality but they do
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
After World War II, mouthy but endearingly furry sidekicks and cel-shading, the latest trend in gaming seems to be for multiple playable characters. Or games where groups of heroes share the lead role, giving the gamer their own unique view of the story. Core Design's Project Eden first attempted it a few years ago but, since then, we've seen Metal Gear Solid 2 divide the battles between Raiden and Snake and soon Killer 7 will be here to do the same - but with multiple personalities. Which in a
In a turn of events almost as bizarre as the pseudo-sport itself, wrestling giants WWE have filed a lawsuit against THQ - who possess the licence to publish WWE-based games until December 2009, which includes the hugely successful Smackdown series.The suit alleges that a former WWE licensing and merchandising boss received bribes from toy manufacturer Jakks Pacific in 1998 to ensure that a joint venture between Jakks and THQ would be given the rights to produce WWE videogames - even though
THQ have just announced the full roster for forthcoming PS2 scrapper WWE SmackDown! vs Raw - and the game will mark the first time grapple legend Bret 'Hitman' Hart makes an appearance in the SmackDown! series. Hart hasn't appeared in the WWE (or WWF as it was then called) since the infamous Survivor Series double-cross in 1997.The roster also features 41 current wrestlers, eight more 'legends' characters (including Mankind, 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper and the Road Warriors) and a smattering of
THQ have released a grapple-bag full of new screenshots of WWE SmackDown! vs Raw, the sixth iteration of their well-regarded SmackDown! series.These latest shots give us an eyeful of some of the game's characters, including Torrie Wilson, Kane, Shelton Benjamin, Eddie Guerrero, John Cena, Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels. There's also a shot of one of the game's 'legends', Andre the Giant, in action against his modern-day equivalent Big Show.We'll have loads more on SmackDown! vs Raw this
THQ have just released a slew of new screenshots of WWE SmackDown! vs Raw - the sixth game in the acclaimed grapple-series. The PS2 title is again being coded by Japanese wrestle-game uber-coders Yuke's and, despite the name, isn't related to the underwhelming Raw games for Xbox. Phew.Little official information has been released as yet but, as evidenced by the shots, we can expect a fully updated roster (including Randy Orton, John Cena and Batista) and the usual backstage antics as part of an
The trickle of screenshots from Winning Eleven 8 - the Japanese game that will eventually become Pro Evolution Soccer 4 when it reaches the UK - continues apace today with a smattering of new in-game images.The shots, which are taken from Japanese games mag Famitsu, aren't of the highest quality but they do give you a taster of what's in store from what promises to be yet another superb outing for the seminal footie series.While it's been confirmed that Winning Eleven 8 won't include an online
