I’ve performed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and could now declare it’s for me, as well.
Around the eve from the open public debut of their newest sport, Valve Software program allow me to into their ever-expanding workplaces in Bellevue, California to offer me a trying of several vintage Counter-Strike maps as they’ve been remade regarding 2012′s Counter-Strike: GO.
This was, My partner and i dare admit, the first time I’ve ever played Counter-Strike.
Forget our shame, along with i want to tell you just how terrific a good experience it was. There is a great deal to this game which will end up being intriguing to experienced persons and newcomers. Continue reading →
Hi all there, sorry for the long times for updates. It seems that the new Counterstrike Global Offensive is not getting pretty big attention from the media right now. I hope that will change when it becomes what a Counterstrike game is supposed to be.
I have found an interesting article over to Joystiq super site about CS GO that has an interview of Chet Faliszek and I decided to share here. Have a look and submit your comments over this here or at the original source of this article.
I can’t imagine how hard it is to be a development studio with some of the most beloved franchises under its belt. Fans expect so much. It can’t be easy to be Valve — doubly so when trying to develop the next entry in one of the studio’s popular competitive franchises,Counter-Strike. Valve’s Chet Faliszek really wants to please the fans and eventual communities that will spring up around Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. read the rest…
In August 2011, Valve announced Counter Strike: Global Offensive, the most recent in the Counter Strike series. Slated for an early 2012 release, the new game within the Counter Strike series is becoming developed by Valve Software in collaboration with Hidden Path Entertainment for numerous platforms, including PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 besides PCs and Macs.
It originally began out as a CS: Source PC to Xbox port. However, throughout the development phase, Valve realized the port’s potential and finally decided to transform it into a full fledged new game. Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of what CS GO is all about and what its going to be like.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Nicely, to be brutally honest, the Counter Strike series does require a visual revamp. But the thing that most Counter Strike fans will agree to is that the gameplay does not need any tweaking – the primary reason becoming Valve has already fine tuned both Counter Strike 1.6 and Counter Strike: Source to perfection over the years… Continue reading →
Hey folks! As many of you probably noticed we’ve been down for the past week… please accept our apologies! We ran into some issues while migrating servers and transferring the domain which have finally been resolved. On a better note, we are now on a much nicer server and the site should be much faster and more responsive from now on. Please let us know of any errors or issues you encounter using the site.
CS:GO news has been quite slow lately anyway – but Valve did mention on their official CSGO developer Twitter that “our next step, launching the beta, begins in the New Year”. This means that Valve will slowly be expanding the size of the closed beta starting sometime in 2012 (most likely January), meaning that for those of you who didn’t get one of the 10,000 keys distributed for the stress test phase of the beta will now have a chance to get your hands on Global Offensive! We’ll keep you guys posted on ways you can get a key – we’re hoping to procure some ourselves to give out to our readers but at the moment we don’t have any to give away. You’ll know as soon as that changes!
On top of that, we have some big things planned for CounterStrikeGO in the next month or so. We’re launching our community forums in January – and those of you who join up early and help us build a thriving forum community will be rewarded down the line! We’re also planning to roll out version 2.0 of the main site, which will eliminate our dependency on WordPress and switch the entire site over to a Xenforo backend (the forum software we will be using). For an example of what to expect, check out our sister site Battlefieldo which uses the same system that we’ll be changing over to later in January.
It’s an exciting time for Counter-Strike fans and we’re thrilled to be a part of it all! If you have any suggestions or feedback on our site so far, feel free to let us know in the comments.
Our Steam forums were defaced on the evening of Sunday, November 6. We began investigating and found that the intrusion goes beyond the Steam forums.
We learned that intruders obtained access to a Steam database in addition to the forums. This database contained information including user names, hashed and salted passwords, game purchases, email addresses, billing addresses and encrypted credit card information. We do not have evidence that encrypted credit card numbers or personally identifying information were taken by the intruders, or that the protection on credit card numbers or passwords was cracked. We are still investigating.
We don’t have evidence of credit card misuse at this time. Nonetheless you should watch your credit card activity and statements closely.
While we only know of a few forum accounts that have been compromised, all forum users will be required to change their passwords the next time they login. If you have used your Steam forum password on other accounts you should change those passwords as well.
We do not know of any compromised Steam accounts, so we are not planning to force a change of Steam account passwords (which are separate from forum passwords). However, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to change that as well, especially if it is the same as your Steam forum account password.
I am truly sorry this happened, and I apologize for the inconvenience.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS GO) will grow upon the team-based action gameplay that this pioneered when it was released 12 years back.
CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). Moreover, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and a lot more.
“Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise once the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world right away after its release in August 1999,” said Doug Lombardi at Valve. “For the past 12 years, it has always been among the most-played games worldwide, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS’ award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac.”
CS GO is now being developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment. The title is targeted for release in early 2012 and will be playable at this year’s PAX Prime and Eurogamer Expo.
I tried something different today! I went to Youtube and I typed the word “counterstrike”. Filtered out channels and crappy videos and then I hit the “most views” filter.
Voila! The 5 most viewed videos on Youtube containing the word Counterstrike! I guess that in a year from now I can make the same post about the 5 best videos of CSGO on youtube right? I have high hopes of Counterstrike global offensive and I will kick valve’s ass if they don’t make it right like the original cs.
Ok, number 5 in our category for “best Counterstrike videos of all time” we have:

IGN First Look Review for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
It’s easy to forget how unforgiving Counter-Strike can be. Valve’s competitive online shooter truly rewards the skilled and stomps all over the newcomers. There are no Call of Duty-style kill streaks, no artillery barrages to call in or packs of dogs to let loose. It’s just you, your guns, a few grenade types and your ability to react. Map knowledge, teamwork and quick reflexes are the only things that matter.
With Global Offensive (or GO), the next version of Counter-Strike,Valve isn’t trying to completely reinvent the franchise. This isn’t Counter-Strike 2, it’s more like an incremental update. Terrorists still fight Counter-Terrorists in round-based combat. You still plant bombs on Dust and rescue hostages on Office. Some maps, like Dust and Aztec, received updates while others, like Dust 2, are largely unchanged. Though the changes aren’t wild, franchise fans will find a few new interesting additions to the formula that may very well turn out to be series staples moving forward.
If you’re using GO’s matchmaking system you’ll be dumped into relatively small maps for five versus five gameplay. Valve built an ELO-based ranking system into GO to determine your skill level, so ideally you’re set up with players around your level of skill. Bots of appropriate difficulty settings will also be added in if a full game of live players can’t be put together. If the idea of a five on five match sounds too limiting, PC players will be able to set up custom matches that Valve assures will provide the same degree of flexibility as is available in Counter-Strike: Source. Console players will not have the option to set up servers, however.
