Ubisoft has announced the availability of PlayStation 2 and PC versions of XIII at retail outlets around the country. The conspiracy-driven, cel-shaded first-person shooter is highly inspired by graphic novels and features the voices of David Duchovny, Eve and Adam West. Both the PC and PS2 versions are online-enabled, with the latter getting an exclusive online mode called Power Up. Four players can compete online in a single PS2 game, while up to 16 can battle it out on the PC platform.
Rockstar Games, a publishing division of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., has released Manhunt for the PlayStation 2 at retailers in North America. Europeans will have to wait until November 21 to get their chance to play as James Earl Cash, a death row inmate freed only to take part in a brutal sport that features hordes of enemies hunting him down for sport.
The Secret Level-developed game is based on The Wizards of the Coast trading card game, and features a single player Quest mode that is made up of six chapters, each with 15 quests. The Xbox version supports online play, complete with stats and rankings.
New creatures, arenas and spells will be offered up through Xbox Live as well down the line.

B… For Brazil, in which lives a Brazilian that though it would be quite funny to exploit our poor little web server, and exploit it he did. So, bravo little Brazilian dude. I aplaud you, for you sir… are THE MAN! In retrospec, various parts of GamersEd will not be working for a while. Off the top of my head, the TA and the Picture Gallery as well as the forums will be down until we can rework the code to accomodate our new security patches.
