So yeah anyway buy it. If not for the lovelyness of the first person shooter gameplay but for cat racing.

PC release? It really bugs me that PC's have always been the best platform and yet the releases are released about 6 months later. Look at GTA: SA... We haven't bloody got it yet! I know it takes a while to port and (in some cases) improve, but surely they can release both versions when they are BOTH finished?

Thanks

It won't be released on PC as it can't compete in that market against shooters of the calibre of Half Life 2
GTA was a PS2 exclusive for 6 months because Sony pay Rockstar a heap of money to make it exclusive so SOny get all the best sales from it. On the whole games are developed for other platforms at the same time. The XBox version was almost certainly finished about the same time as the PS2 version theyre just not allowed to release it. Money talks [!--emo&:p--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/tongue.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'tongue.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

Looks good, but I don't have a modern gaming console. All I've got is a PlayStation (original version, not PS2). But I have an in-law who's fanatically devoted to these types of games, so I'll get him to buy it.

RW, what parts of the programming were you involved with? Some graphics obviously, but what else?

Timesplitters 2 was excellent, and Future Perfect looks to be better than it in every possible way. There are too many games out there that take themselves too seriously in the place of being fun, so Timesplitters is always a breath of fresh air.

Cool [!--emo&:D--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/biggrin.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'biggrin.gif\' /][!--endemo--] I did a lot of code that helped with making the game use less memory which people won't actually get to see but the visual side I did all the challenges with the exception of the Timesplitters Classic challenges which I didnt do much with. I also did all of the computers that you interact with such as the one in the screenshot above and I also did almost all the lifts in the game [!--emo&:)--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'smile.gif\' /][!--endemo--]
Earlier on I also did a lot of work for the artists to make their job easier

In my opinion TS2 was the best and most underated game on the PS2...and by the way its shaping up to be TS3 looks so much better. I especially like the idea that you can meet yourself in the past. well done mate. It looks like you have done a good job!!

I've been away for the past few days due to MGS3. Completed it. It was amazing. Lets hope your right RW! Its going to be hard for me to enjoy that more than MGS3 though... [!--emo&:D--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/biggrin.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'biggrin.gif\' /][!--endemo--] When is the exact release date? I need another game. Does it have a lengthy single player story mode this time? Good plot?

all the information you need should be available at eagames.com/timesplitters

It has a full narrative in the story mode with cutscenes and buddys who play on your side to help you out. The plot is great [!--emo&:)--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'smile.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

Should be out on the 22nd in US and Friday after in the UK/Europe depending on the shops stance on Easter Friday

RW, one question, very important. Is there an inclusion of the original spaceways level from the first game. Me and my friend were remenicing today of the fun that level gave us in multiplayer.

Reviews are starting to come in. According to them, it's better than the other Timesplitters games, which of course was to be expected. However, it's obvious standards have also gone up, which means the scores are hovering in the low 90's and high 80's, just like Timesplitters 2. If it's an improvement over the second, though, then I'll be quite happy with it.

Now, if only I had some money...

Yeah the reviews are pretty good apart from the French who hate the game for some reason. Should be out today in the US so if anyone gets it let me know what they think good and bad [!--emo&:)--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'smile.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

[/quote]Awesome, those ones were my favourites from Timesplitters 2, except for perhaps the Streets level. Do these ones feature visual upgrades over the older versions? What about new rooms, etc.?

I was in a gaming store over the weekend, pointed at the big display for the game, and said "I know a guy who designed that. He's about this tall:

Is yellow, and bobs back and forth.
