Manhunt 2 News | Sony Say No to Adult Orientated Games
<p> <a href="http://www.wired.com/gaming/gamingreviews/news/2007/08/esrb?currentPage=1" target="_blank">Wired</a>
have posted an article titled &#8216;Manhunt 2 Meltdown Shows Game-Killing Power
of Adults-Only Rating&#8217;, the article, which is pretty much just a summary
of everything surrounding the rating of Manhunt 2 does, however, contain a new
quote from the director of corporate communications at SCEA, David Karraker.</p>

<p>Karraker reiterates that Sony and adult rated titles are not something that
is going to happen:</p>
<blockquote>
<p>We want to offer age-appropriate entertainment for our consumers but do not
want to be associated with material that is gratuitously violent or pornographic.
</p>
</blockquote>
<p>That is a pretty absurd statement, what he is in effect saying is that the
consumer is unable to differentiate the content and creator of the game from
those that have manufactured the console itself. That is like implying when
you go and see a movie that you assume that your local cinema made the movie
that you are watching. </p>
<p>In the future can we look forward to Sony installing an anti-gore prevention
system into their next line of Bravia television sets or a self-blur filter
to prevent the innocent eyes of the world from the explicit nudity available
on the internet through their VAIO line of computers?</p>
<p>I can understand not wanting to create such content, but not third party publishers,
publish the content, should they choose to do so is ridiculous. And besides,
he obviously is not too familiar with the games that Sony themselves develop
and publish, God of War anyone?</p>

Manhunt 2 News | Manhunt 2 Once Again Confirmed
<p> I have just received word from a trusted source that they have recorded dialogue
for Manhunt 2. </p>

<blockquote>
<p>Manhunt 2 is already in the can, and yes--I voiced a character for it. Unsure
of the release date, however.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>There you have it, short and sweet. That takes us too 3 voice actors confirming
as much, and as many other sources hinting at it. As soon as we know anything
else it will be posted here.</p>
<p>For all of you Ramirez fans out there, we have managed to get the opportunity
to ask Chris McKinney (voice of Ramirez and Wardogs #4) some questions about
his work on Manhunt and anything else you may like to know. If you have a question
for Mr. McKinney then you can submit them to us via <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/contact/index.php">E-Mail</a>
or post them on the <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/forums/">Forum</a>.</p>
<p>There is also an update on the petition front; you can add your name to the
petition by clicking <a href="http://www.manhuntuncut.com/petition.php" target="_blank">here</a>
or by clicking on the image to the left of the page.</p>

Manhunt News | Fan Creativity
<p> Just thought I would drop in with an update of sorts, of what has been happening
over the past few weeks.</p>
<p> There are a ton of rumours going around concerning Take-Two, Rockstar and
potential games due to be released, I would dismiss them until we receive word
from Take-Two/Rockstar themselves. Thanks to everyone that sent emails in, we
haven&#8217;t ignored them, it is just impossible to report on every rumour
that turns up concerning Take-Two and Rockstar. If we get anything we feel may
have some element of truth to it we will be sure to post it here.</p>
<p>There is a movement taking place within the Manhunt community that is worth
noting; many fans are attempting to send the word to Rockstar that they would
like to see a sequel for Manhunt released sooner rather than later. If you too
would like to add your two cents into the mix or would like to just post a general
comment, you can do so by going <a href="http://www.manhuntuncut.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1044" target="_blank">here</a>.
Spread the word, nothing speaks like volume.</p>

<p>PC first person shooter fans are in for a treat as there is a Doom 3 mod in
the works by the name of &#8216;<em>Lynch</em>&#8217;, the mod takes cue from
Manhunt to name but one of its inspirations. Koroshiya Ichi (the author) sent
me a brief overview of the project:</p>
<blockquote>
<p>For those of you who like myself are desperately awaiting some news on Manhunt
2, I have a project you may be interested in.</p>
<p>Lynch is an upcoming, episodic Doom 3 modification which is greatly inspired
by games such as Manhunt, Condemned: Criminal Origins and films in the vein
of Irreversible and Man Bites Dog. As the player, you will be thrown in a
desperate situation, where you must think and/or fight to survive. You'll
be constantly forced into asking questions regarding moral inclination against
the primal instinct to survive.</p>
<p>Told entirely through CCTV and body cameras, Lynch is a first person survival
horror which combines elements of stealth, suspense and brutal melee combat.
Just remember, it's only as violent as you are.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>You can get more information on the mod by clicking <a href="http://www.lynch.bloodspitstudios.com/" target="_blank">here</a>.</p>

<p>There have been a few homemade Manhunt videos made over the past few years
but if you would like to peep the latest then click <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLqy1M7DzYI" target="_blank">here</a>.
Currently they have made a short movie dedicated to the Smilies, next up for
them is the Skinz, the team behind these movies have also been keeping the forum
members updated with the status of them, by clicking here you can see images
of the fourth coming Skinz short and other pieces of information.</p>
<p>There is a rather strange outburst of creativity taking place right now amongst
Manhunt fans, this can further more be proven by checking out the newly added
<a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=17">Fan
Art</a> section to the <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/gallery/">Image
Gallery</a>, forum member PiggsyX has been hard at work putting together busts,
figures and memorial statues all relating to Manhunt characters and they look
great. There is also some other submissions been added including potential gang
members and characters by fugshot, as well as his (seemingly) monthly newspaper
column dedicated to the happenings of Carcer City. Elsewhere there is a Manhunt
comic in the works, but they aren&#8217;t up for showing that quite yet. Regular
members to the forum are able to get an early preview however. There have also
been quite a few text based works done including potential sequel scripts, weapon
selection and a bevy of other subjects; you can join in on that fun <a href="http://www.manhuntuncut.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=8&sid=8e44560b495c596b77aee11ad60afa45" target="_blank">here</a>.</p>
<p>We are late in posting this but you can check out a Manhunt speed run <a href="http://speeddemosarchive.com/Manhunt.html" target="_blank">here</a>.
Apologies to Sigma for taking so long to post this, it must have slipped off
the radar. Anyway he is looking for feedback, if you have any words for him
you can pass those along also on the <a href="http://www.projectmanhunt.com/forums/">Forum</a>.</p>

<p>Site updates coming soon.</p>
