With so little information about TimeSplitters 4 circulating around the Internet and Haze not going over well with a considerable number of people, it's hard to know what to expect from Free Radical.Will TimeSplitters 4 be on...


Having only played through some of the demo for Haze, I'm not even going to comment on the quality of Free Radical's PlayStation 3 first-person shooter. I will say that the four-player cooperative drop-in/drop-out sounds real...


Here's the song by Korn that was made Ubisoft's and Free Radical's Haze. The song is called Haze and Korn performed it live at a concert. The song is available on Korn's new album that was released overseas. To quote the pres...

I love Timesplitters 2. I mean really love it. In an almost scary way. If it were a girl I'd marry it, if it were a food I'd gorge on it until my stomach lining burst, and if it were a drug my veins, lungs and brain would now...
