Fear and chaos has descended upon THIRD-i, as the enemy makes a deadly strike right in the heart of HQ. The terrifying spectre of 'Bloody-X' has reared its head and claimed its first victim...

Where, then, is the real file? The battle of the hackers has begun, and a slipup on any side most certainly won't be pretty.
