Episode 21: TimeSplitters & Geist

AA - Unique FPS

The GameCube Was Cool is back with three new games this week: TimeSplitters 2, TimeSplitters Future Perfect, and Geist, 3 first-person shooters that seem to have faded away in today's over-saturated FPS market. Neil and Mike discuss TimeSplitters' legacy, and the idea that it really is the true successor to N64's GoldenEye as well as lamenting what could have been for the developer Free Radical Design, made up of former Rare employees. The boys fittingly take a look at the past, present, and future TimeSplitters and theorize where this franchise goes from here. They also cover Geist, another game that often gets forgotten but displays some very early capture mechanics (Mario Odyssey much?) and still has a place in the GameCube lore today. Skip to 30:58 to hear Neil's YTV commercial of TimeSplitters 2.
