"My video is way out of date on this one but CS remains an extremely popular multiplayer shooter for a very good reason.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."

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!

- Serves 4
- 10 mins to prepare and 10 mins to cook
- 325 calories / serving
- Healthy

INGREDIENTS:

- 1 orange, zested and juiced
- 2tbsp soy sauce
- 2tbsp sesame oil
- 250g (8oz) tender stem broccoli
- 5cm (2in) piece root ginger
- 1tbsp sunflower oil
- 1 garlic clove, finely sliced
- 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
- 150g Straight To Wok Noodles
- 400g (13oz) chicken fillet, cut into thin slices

METHOD

Step 1 - Mix together the orange zest and juice, soy sauce and sesame oil and set aside.

Step 2 - Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 2 minutes, then drain well and set aside.

Step 3 - Finely shred the ginger. Then heat a large frying pan or wok, add the sunflower oil, heat it until sizzling, and fry the ginger till it's crisp.

Step 4 - When it's done, remove with a slotted spoon. Add the chicken and garlic, and stir-fry until just browned. Remove the meat using a slotted spoon and set aside.

Step 5 - Add the red pepper and broccoli and stir-fry for around 2-3 minutes until it's just tender. Add the soy sauce mixture, bring it to the boil then return the chicken to the pan and heat through. Serve with noodles.

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

I like it because I'm incredibly bad at it and it is enjoyable during free time.
- Not for new players who do not adapt quickily, I got my ♥♥♥ handed to me when I tried it out for the first time but that's just me.
- Good graphics
- Optimizable
- Triggered
- Kids saying outdated your mom jokes that can be found during the age of neanderthals.
- Adults trash talking me as well.
- Memers (The good section of the community, but my word is biased.) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
- Not as toxic a community as my friends made it out to be but it is still toxic nonetheless.
- Most importantly, it's fun. Unless you are the kind that gets angry easily for no damned reason.
(This is not a roast post.)

(8.2/10)

This game is really fun. Csgo is a great teamwork game and if your board just go play the steam work shop stuff. The skins though can be quite exspencive so thats a bit of a let down, its a great game. For me its a 8.7 out of 10.

Best game ever! The new sounds are great! This is not realistic game, you can still bhop there and boost on your teammates! I got some friends in enemy team, they were scanning me through the 3 walls! Thanks Volvo! PS. I'd been playing with some cheater around 3 months ago, he was shooting all positions where we were with pre-fire and scanning us, you know what? He is still not banned! Gr8 work Valve! Regards

WARNING TO NEW PLAYERS:

Expect to be ♥♥♥♥ at the game for a long ♥♥♥ time. This is no casual shooter, I have over 100 hours as you can tell and I'm still crap.
You will be kicked if you don't know the callouts for the map you are playing on. Don't just jump into competitive as soon as you can, if you do that you are a huge part of the cancer that is this community.

If you take this into consideration we will get on just fine.

Oh and expect Russians. Lots of Russians.
