Giveaway: XIII (Steam)

We have four Steam keys for y’all!

They remade XIII. Craziness. Awesome craziness, but craziness none the less. I’ve always had a soft spot for this fps conspiracy fest. Maybe it’s Adam West, or ole Smouldering Mulder. Maybe it was the cel shading, which blew me away at the time (and made me miss Shogo). Doesn’t matter what it was, because PlayMagic and Microids went and did it, and it’s out today! That’s we are here, with four copies of the Steam version to giveaway to you lovely folks. What is XIII you ask? Let’s hit the blurb: 

XIII is a remake of the cult first-person action game that was initially released in 2003. You play as “XIII”, a man without an identity, in a solo campaign with numerous twists and turns. Inspired by the eponymous graphic novel, the game features a completely reinvented and unique cel-shading design. In XIII, players can also take part in fierce multi-player fights.

The country remains in a state of shock following the assassination of President Sheridan. You wake up, wounded and with amnesia, on a deserted beach on the east coast. The only clues as to your identity are a tattoo of the number XIII near your collarbone and a locker key. Even though your memory is failing, you discover that you have the reflexes of a highly trained professional fighter. You set off in search of your past, discovering that you played a role in the murder of the President of the United States of America, and revealing the most astounding conspiracy ever hatched in the country’s history.”
