One of EAís most eagerly anticipated titles at this yearís E3 must be the third game in Free Radicalís Timesplitters series (available on PS2, Xbox and GC). Predictably, it will follow the adventures of Cortez as he seeks to eliminate those pesky time-splitting fiends from the history books. It should all be as expected: single player and co-op modes, 16 player death-matches, online play and a fun-packed Arcade mode. It is claimed to contain several hundred hours worth of action, which is just about believable thanks to the proven longevity of its prequel.

The most exciting feature, feeding from PS2ís online support, has to be the new and improved Map Editor. Players will be able to create their own levels, and then invite other online folk to step in for a rumble. This feature will of course also take advantage of a healthy library of pre-designed levels for those less creatively inclined.

Expect more hype-mongering over the course of next week, and the finished product some time at the start of 2005.

Oh goody, a map editor, just what we need - more cubular grey warehouses to walk around.

The Timesplitters map editor blew my PS2 up, Sony had to fix it.

Cool. I loved Cubular Bells that that crumbly old fart did for the Exorcist. Cubular Bells 2 & 3 sounded the same, though...

Anyway, everyone knows that fan-built maps are the life blood of PC games. If only Sony had a great online infrastructure where TS2.5, sorry, TS3 fans could upload and share their maps groovy maps. That would rock. What a concept, ay?

That's nothing. Rockstar ate my hamster, and Codemasters had to pay out millions in damages. Now I own their asses.
