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."

How To Make a Basic Butter Cake from Scratch

Makes one 2-layer cake
What You Need
Ingredients
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (plus extra for greasing the pans)
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups buttercream frosting, such as basic buttercream

Equipment
2 9-inch round pans
Stand mixer or hand mixer
Measuring cups and spoons
Cookie scoop or measuring cup, for dividing the batter

Instructions
Heat the oven to 350°F.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Prepare the pans: Rub the bottoms and sides of the cake pans with a little butter, shortening, or baking spray. Make sure to get into the corners and all the way up the sides. Flour the sides and bottoms of the pan by scooping a bit of flour into the pan, then shaking and tapping to coat the bottom and sides of the pan with flour; dump out the excess. Alternatively, cut out a parchment round and use this to line the bottom.
Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy and light. Cream together for about 3 to 5 minutes on medium spread (see above notes for more information).
Add the eggs one at a time. Beat until the batter is very smooth and creamy-looking. Adding the eggs one at a time gives them a better chance at incorporating into a smooth batter. Be sure they are room temperature so the batter does not appear curdled.
Beat in half the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the sifted dry ingredients with the mixer running at low speed. Continue to mix until incorporated.
Beat in the milk and vanilla. Alternate adding in the liquids with the dry ingredients so the milk has a chance to be absorbed without needing to overmix the batter. Stream in the milk with the mixer on low until combined.
Beat in the remaining flour mixture until just combined and no more visible flour remains. Stir a few times with a spatula to make sure no more flour remains on the bottom of the bowl.
Divide the batter between cake pans. Use a scale or mechanical ice cream scoop to evenly divide the batter. Smooth the tops with an offset spatula. Drop the pans against the counter to shake out air bubbles.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes: When done, the cake should be puffed like a pillow, golden, and pull away from the sides of the pan. When done, a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes should come out clean.
Cool for 15 minutes in the pan. Run an offset spatula around the cake to make sure it's completely loosened from the sides of the pan.
Flip the rounds out of the pan, remove the parchment lining, and flip right-side up to cool completely.
Once cool, frost and assemble the cake with the buttercream.

this game is like a drug

you're tempted not to buy it

but you get peer pressured by your friends

so you decided to buy it

when you first did it, it felt pretty good

but then you realize the health hazards and decided to quit after awhile

however after awhile you got restless and decided to come back

you eventually stop sleeping for 2 months and die of sleep deprivation

drugs are bad
cs go is a drug
dont do cs go kids

Russian Plan - Rush B!

I opened my eyes
I tried to see but I'm blinded by a flashbang
I can't remember how
I can't remember why
I went to B alone

And I can't hold the rush
And I can't even throw a grenade
No I can't hold the rush

How did I get matched with this team?
I've made my mistakes
I've got nowhere to run
The round goes on
As my health is fading away
I'm sick of this game
I just wanna leave
How did I get matched with this team?

Everybody's shooting
I tried to make a callout but no one hears me
I'm slipping off the ramp
I'm soon going to be dead
I wanna start this over again

So I try to hold onto a time when my rank mattered
And I can't explain what happened
And I can't erase the games that I've lost
No I can't

How did I get matched with this team?
I've made my mistakes
I've got nowhere to run
The round goes on
As my health is fading away
I'm sick of this game
I just wanna leave
How did I get matched with this team?

My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, 'If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately.'. Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- 'Don't ever smoke. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed. At 21, I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because this game gave me cancer anyway.

11/10 would get cancer again

Ever wanted an amazing FPS, team based, strategy game? You have the need to unleash the strategic beast in you? You want to co-operate with friendly people to win 16 rounds? Well, hopefully you can get past Legendary Eagle Master rank ASAP or your dreams will never come true!
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the best FPS on the market. It teaches you about teamwork and your place in the squad as an individual, both on the offence and the defence. It offers multicultural experience. It feels like a gateway to Russia. De_Dust2 is only one click away! Get your russian dictionaries and prepare for the ride of your life!
But what does the game offer, you might ask?
- Amazing and responsive 64 tick servers!
- Regular updates to feed your gambling addiction introducing new ways to waste money!
- A chance to meet Russians from all over the world!
- Inhuman strength giving you the opportunity to jump with a sniper rifle and still hit your shots as recoil doesn't matter! It's pure RNG!
- New to FPS genre? Don't sweat it! Just ♥♥♥♥ blyat idi nahui
- A world where pistols do more damage than rifles
And much, much more!
Don't miss out! CS:GO is the game for You!

I had a lot of enjoyable moments on this game, I'm not going to lie about that. The issue with this game lies in the potential for addiction (yes this is legitimate with this game), the potential to lose a lot of money, and the community.
Let me start my story of CSGO from the beginning. I bought the game a bit over a year ago. I actually hated it at first and didn't like the mechanics. I dabbled into it more in the summer and found once I got a little bit better I started to enjoy it more. I bought a skin that I liked for about 20$ and played with it for a while. This was my second phase, and it wasn't nearly as bad as when I had first gotten the game, but still didn't keep my attention, as I stopped playing again at the end of August. I then got back into the game right before the holidays at the end of 2015. This was the best and worst phase of the 3. I got pretty good, and the feeling of getting better was euphoric. I got into skin trading and held a solid MG1 after the major update (which would have been DMG or LE pre update). FFW to mid- late January and that's when things were starting to go down hill. Of course I didn't know it at the time but I had become extremely addicted to CSGO. Just for perspective I had about 50 hours on this game last november. 500 of my hours were logged between December 2015 and March 2016. On top of the addiction to the game itself, I got addicted to skin trading and the rush from making a successful trade. I ended up sinking hundreds of dollars into it, and ended up losing about 300$. This all may sound ridiculous but the game damn near ruined my life. I'm in my senior year of high school, and I almost failed my first semester due to a combination of this game and working retail during the holidays. Had I not stopped playing in March I may still be wasting as much time now as I did before, and that could really f*ck me up. Additionally, the community is often toxic and often unpleasent to play with. Casual is canceraids. Please, if you do buy this game, never let it consume you. It's hard to realize when it does, and you can lose a lot of money very quickly if you're not careful. Skins and cases are almost NEVER profitable. You are also NEVER going to be a pro, so please do not waste too much money on a new keyboard, monitor and 2 mice like I did unless you have other reasons. I repeat, do not let this game get to you.

Counter-Strike:GO is a pretty darn good game but its toxic community is absolutely horrible.

Competitive mode mostly consists of people that show zero respect towards other people.
They tend to flame, teamkill, etc. (you name it) others if players don't meet their expectations and will just ruin your game(s). Most of them lack communication skills as well.
Competitive mode is supposed to be a 5v5 team-oriented game but it just feels like a Onemanarmy:walkinglikeaheadlesschicken mode because most of the time people refuse to cooperate as a team.

For the other modes; I'm not going to cover them, either because they're not relevant for this review (This review is primarily focused on the competitive mode) or because the same ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t mentioned above applies there too.

I only recommend playing competitive mode with friends. You won't get any fun out of it otherwise, unless you get lucky and get grouped with 0,01% of the community that are actually nice and show some respect.

A great game in the shadow of an absolutely horrible community.
Pathetic. Just pathetic.


On a side-note; take a general look at how the communities of online PVP games have changed over the last 10 years. It hurts me to see how gaming communities in general have changed to what they are now.

Pros: Fun Competitive game to play with friends

Cons: Hackers and smurfs plague the community

Valve need to make their Anti-Cheat better. It's disgusting the amount of hackers there are, and I'm not talking about really "good" players I'm talking about FULL blown hackers that don't even hide the fact they are doing so.
