The Golden-Esque shooters are sub-type of shooter that I hope gets revived. Timesplitters Future Perfect and Perfect Dark Zero where casual shooters done right, easy to pick up and play but no skill gap compression in the MP.

I just spent quite a bit of time tracking down in a copy of TimeSplitters 2 for my GameCube. I have to say me and my nine-year-old son had a lot of fun with that game even in this day in age

I know the dev team (Dambuster Studios) that was supposed to make Timesplitters 4 is owned by Koch Media/Deep Silver but isn’t the Timesplitters IP owned by THQ Nordic?

CBaoth2146d ago

looks like THQ Nordic bought Koch Media this past February for 121 million EUR. They remain independent subsidiaries but obviously they're all under the same umbrella now. Which is good since it's been a long time since the last TS and there's a wealth of source material to parody

Lying about the power of the "Ultra 64" ..promising an arcade 1:1 port of Killer Instinct and later just having a super poor SNES port of the game + a very gimped version of Killer Instinct 2.

Didnt buy a Nintendo Console since the gamecube, didnt regret it.

I'd say them opting to stick to carts for the N64 was probably their biggest blunder. Even more so than their back stabbing deal against Sony. It literally cost them their long time partnership with Square and the FF series. There was not a single FF (or DQ) title on the N64 when there had been ones on the NES and SNES. They came to their senses with the Cube and supported mini DVD so they at least got back into SE's good graces... but the damage was done and FF7 went on to be the biggest FF game and a huge win for PS.
