"My video is way out of date on this one but CS remains an extremely popular multiplayer shooter for a very good reason. Nothing beats the tension."

About This Game

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 14 years ago.

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

"Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombardi at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, 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."

Your first engagement. You have passed the test with the best grades, but this is your first actual mission. "Why did I even choose this job?" you're asking yourself staring at your gun. The commander places his hand on your shoulder and asks:
"You okay, kid?"
"Y..yes." You reply, and you place the magazine into your M4
"Alright, let's do this, then, Bravo squad!" The commander says over the radio.

You and your teammate are walking down the streets of the war-torn city, destroyed vehicles
everywhere, the gunfire from far away echoes between the ruins. You come across a tunnel that you got to go through to get to the other side of the area.

"I'll flash it" Your teammate says, but he collapses down before he could even reach for the flashbang on his belt.

You get blinded by the sun shaft reflected by the sniper's scope for a split second, and then you see him. A terrorist. You aim your rifle at him and shoot him before he blew your brains out. You check your teammate's pulse...dead. And then you notice a small hole in your kevlar, with a stream of blood coming out of it. You got hit. You get on your knees and puke. You slowly get up from the blood and vomit soaked sand and you continue down the corridor. Your intel says there were 5 terrorists. You killed one, four to go. You ask your other teammates for a report through the radio, but only your commander responds.

"They're at point Alpha, I'm pinned down!" He screams over the radio as you rush to the target Alpha

You flash the corner, and you see all four of them blinded, and your commander lying on the ground in a pool of blood. You kill them while they were blinded. They're all dead.

"T....the bomb...." Your commander moans

A small pack of C4, with a timed detonator flashing red is placed between the UN carepackages. You approach it with your defuse kit. You have defused live bombs before, but this was different. Your numb fingers struggle to find the right wire to cut. 15 seconds. You collect all of your strenght and you try to concentrate....but you fail. 10 seconds. They always say "CUT THE RED WIRE" in the movies, but you know that movies have nothing to do with real life. You drop the defuse kit. 5 seconds.

"Come....on..y...you can do it..." your commanders says

You pick up the defuse kit again, but it's too late. You watch in terror as the countdown reaches zero. And, right before the bomb explodes you hear someone yell over the radio:

"♥♥♥♥ YOU, ♥♥♥♥! KICK THIS NOOB IDIOT!!"

You close your eyes as the C4 detonates.

If you're looking for a positive review, then you're in the wrong place, HOWEVER, if you're here for a tremendous chicken Stir Fry recipe, THEN LOOK NO FURTHER!

- 2tbsp sesame oil
- 250g (8oz) tender stem broccoli
- 5cm (2in) piece root ginger
- 1tbsp sunflower oil

At least they're still adding skins, right?
Who needs bug fixes and general improvements to the game when you can buy new skins?

Before I started playing CSGO I was depressed and not motivated to do anything and I hated my job and didn't know what to do in my life.

But this game has totally changed my mind and opened a new chapter to my life. Finally I found something that I am good and helps me to reduce stress.

However, this have become an addiction and I can not STOP playing this game 24/7 and even got FIRED by my boss for being late and tired at work. But who CARES that job sucks anyways.

But now I have become a potatoe and jobless and still opening cases to get a knife and hoping to get a PAYDAY $$$ :)

The most toxic gaming community you could ever come across. Full of rage hacking kids who are toxic as hell and need a leather belt whipped on their bare ♥♥♥ more than a few times. Spend hours aim practising and smoke maps etc to bust your ♥♥♥ out of gold nova to finally make it to MG. Turns out anyone and everyone who is in MG and plays like a god is apparently an smfc smurf, and "clearly not a hacker" The amount of smfc there is in Australia is outstanding, but yet still manage to come up with a ♥♥♥♥ team like the renegades.
Prime is ♥♥♥♥ing ridiculous, you have more luck queueing non prime to get legit players.
Incredibly hard being a girl gamer, use your mic and you're going to get roasted by 12ies who have mummy issues and most probably virgins and also that you have a voice changer because clearly females never leave the kitchen and wouldnt be half decent at "a man's game". Don't use your mic to avoid said situation and get accused of being broke and not being able to afford a mic.
After nearly a year of playing this and watching the game turn to ♥♥♥♥ as all they care about is adding new skins every ♥♥♥♥ing month and not giving two ♥♥♥♥♥ about their anti hack, I shudder to think where it'll be in a few months, and ive only been playing a year -.-
GGWP Gaben you freaking tool.
