Ships Ahoy - Chessmaster X & The Political Machine

Ubisoft announces that Chessmaster 10th Edition for the PC is available today in North America. In spite of nine prior versions, they say the new version: "features the largest and most compelling upgrade ever to both gameplay and graphics." In further shipping news, just in time for the brunt of the U.S. presidential campaign, Ubisoft also announces that The Political Machine, Stardock's "Edutainment" title that simulates the electoral process, is likewise now shipping in North America. Here's a bit on the game:

A PC-CD strategy game based on data collected from surveys, exit polls, and the 2000 U.S. Census, The Political Machine users are challenged to spend 41 weeks on the campaign trail, serving as a campaign manager for a presidential candidate. In an effort to secure a spot in the Oval Office, the user is tasked to secure the greatest number of electoral votes and utilize the various facets of political strategy.

Players can design their own candidates based on a dozen different characteristics or use existing political candidates such as George W. Bush, John Kerry and dozens of historical politicians including Ronald Reagan and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Political Machine is both a single and multiplayer game, giving players the choice to compete against the computer or other users online at the game’s official website, www.politicalmachine.com.
