RespawnAction: "I have been hearing/reading a lot of good things about the Timesplitters series for quite a while now. Back in the day I was a huge fan of the N64 Goldeneye game and had many a night playing multiplayer with my friends and cousin. Whipping out the dual P90′s or dual Lasers was great and I’m sure even today the multiplayer would be loads of fun.
Recently I had been looking at Youtube videos of Timesplitters 2 and saw a great similarity between that game and Goldeneye. I thought to myself about how I had never heard of the series before. I am sure my cousin had told me about it as he was always playing first person shooter games, but I guess I had blown it off. I have been playing a lot of online shooters and was in the mood for a nice single player adventure. I love those old school single player FPS games; the games that had a great focus on story as opposed to just the multiplayer. So after seeing Timesplitters 2 for a while now I finally made the trip to Gamestop and picked it up used for roughly $7. Quite a deal, huh? There’s something about buying a last generation game in this day and age, I just can’t describe it. Maybe it is my feeling of last generation games being superior to this generation. Who knows."

PS3attitide: Today the US PlayStation website received an unexpected revamp with a brand new cleaner look.
The dark black site we have become used to has now disappeared in favour of a brighter grey feel that is more akin to its European counterpart.
So far we have to say that we’re impressed with it, and the website feels a lot more inviting.
It will even tell you how many of your friends on your PSN account are online at the top of every page, although this doesn’t appear to be working right now.
The forums are also offline so we will have to wait and see if there is any change there.

Joe Russell writes, "Call of Pripyat was a decidedly difficult game to anticipate. Coming as it was from a series which has spawned both a hit and a miss, for many the third instalment was anything but a certain success. In 2007, gamers worldwide found themselves enraptured by GSC Game World’s depiction of the radioactive world of the ‘Zone’.
Now, in 2010, we return once again to the uniquely atmospheric setting of the Zone. But will Call of Pripyat be more akin to the classic Shadow of Chernobyl, or the underwhelming Clear Sky?"

GB writes: "Folks we are in the seventh generation of gaming and are being blown away by the power of Xbox 360. All of us who have bought the Xbox 360 must have bought many blockbuster games along with it like Gears of War, Halo 3 and the more recent Mass Effect 2.
But there are many great games which we have played last generation (and in previous ones too) and we are forced to wonder if we will ever get to play them with next generation graphics and game play. We decide to list those games which should be remade on the Xbox 360."
