  1. It’s been a long while since Valve launched the remake of the original Counter-Strike using the Source engine in 2004. Then last Friday, out of nowhere, the prolific game publisher…

    CS:S has been one of the only games that I can recall not playing for a year or so and then pick it back up for a few months. Can't wait to see more details on CS:GO

    So far it sounds good, read few reviews which were published by the "pros" and they praised it alot. Only thing I am worried is that it will be catered to consoles which may ruin the whole CS imho..

    This brings back good memories. I'd love to see what they can do with it now.

    Still nothing about episode three... Why Valve, why?!

    Still though, this are great news. I love CS. Hopefully they don't focus on the consoles like they did with Portal 2...

    great news. I just hope HL2: episode 3 doesn't go the way of Duke Nukem Forever! ;p

    YESSS. Extremely excited. I'd pre-order if I could. :D
  8. "Next-gen consoles"? None of that technology can even compete with the hardware that's being produced these days. I'm just saying that there's no point in glorifying our current generation of consoles as being something they're not.

    I cry every night, I am SERIOUSLY pissed they haven't announced anything yet. Stop making everything and anything, drop everything and start full steam on Episode 3 PLEASE!

    Agreed, I don't like the fact that the menu is all consolised and that the lighting in all of the ending rooms are fake and reflect onto your own gun and characters, sucks big time.

    Spent far too much time (often when I should be sleeping) planting/defusing the bomb.
    Looking forward to seeing what can be done to bring CS up to date with modern shooters without spoiling the original.
