BS: Midway had some unique gamer pics available for download. All those WW2 pinup girl style pics were great. I still have the patriotic busty blonde as mine (I think she's on the back of the game box too). Several friends have other pinup pics too.

Will we be getting more cool pics like those or will it be just pics of BB's, DD's, Zeros, subs, etc.?

In other words you want more pinup girls :whistle:

That would be great. It would be hard for me to pick one to replace the one I have though. But . . . there was a lot of interesting artwork done during WW2 for military units. From the artwork done on the sides of airplanes to ship insignias, I think there's more for Eidos to offer than just the generic pics of units and weapons. Every game does that.

Here's a cool page with art and an interesting article about noseart up through Desert Sorm.

And from the same site, actual WW2 posters. http://www.jcs-group.com/military/store3.html
I like this one: http://artfiles.art.com/images/-/Everett-Johnson/WWII-Posters-Giclee-Print-C11858679.jpeg

And I know there's a strong BS: Midway following in the U.K. so perhaps some art from their side of the war would be appreciated:

And there's also been talk about Microsoft's new "avatars" that are supposedly going to be customizable.

What Eidos could do with those is up to the imagination and the limitations MS has. You might have an avatar in a WW2 pilot's outfit, a naval commander's, sittiing in a plane, sitting on top of a small battleship/submarine/ carrier, etc.

They can be animated so maybe the avatar can actually be in a divebomber as it dives down, waving at the screen with a big grin.

Maybe you could have an avatar standing on a small sub yelling "fire", yanking his fist down, and a torp fires out the sub at the same time.

There certainly are plans afoot for art releases, etc. I've been totally er, stacked, with Tomb Raider stuff lately, but let me do some catching up and I can hopefully give you an idea of what's planned.

I personally hope they're gonna do something a little more creative than just sex appeal.

Maybe Eidos will save some budget money and just put Lara Croft in a sexy sailor's outfit. :nut:

Lara Croft is very much stacked indeed, Keir. @_@
