I could wax on and on about my love for Grand Theft Auto IV — how I lost 40-some-odd hours playing it while my children wondered why I spent so much time with the “brightly colored ladies,” how my dreams started to come with radars/threat meters, how I perfected an awesome Niko Bellic voice (and almost got thrown out of the Russian Vodka Room because of it) — but I’ll just let you imagine me jumping up-and-down at the sight of this, the first trailer for The Lost and the Damned, the first batch of downloadable content for GTAIV.

Not sure how much it’ll cost to download when it’s available on February 17, but I know that my Xbox 360 (the only platform upon which The Lost and the Damned will be available) and I will be taking a “sick day.” How about you?
