Timeshift deserves attention according to Kotaku

Impressions: Timeshift Makes Me Shift My Pants - Kotaku

I had to sneak this one in before I left.

Crecente sounds excited for this one, which is a good sign. As described, the summary of his post screams, "Holy S#!+! someone figured out an interesting time manipulation mechanic!"

It sounds like instead of simply slowing time for everything, Timeshift is setup so everything and everyone around the protagonist is affected by slowing, stopping, or reversing time. It can be used to cover your tracks (break a window, then reverse time to fix it), steal weapons from stronger opponents, or use the environment in reverse time to recover a mistep (float back on an object that fell earlier).

They even figured out how to do multiplayer without playing an entire match in slow-mo, but still having the power via grenades.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one, that's for sure.
