"My video is way out of date on this one but CS remains an extremely popular multiplayer shooter for a very good reason.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

- 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

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.

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

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.

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.)

I was only 20 years old
I loved GabeN so much, I have all his games
I pray to GabeN every night before bed, thanking him for the games i've been given
"GabeN is love" I say, "GabeN is life"
My roommate hears me and calls me an elitist
I knew he was just jealous of my devotion to GabeN
I called him a peasant
He rages and leaves the room
I'm crying now that people can be so stupid
I sit next to my PC and it's really hot
Something is moving towards me
I feel something touch me
It's GabeN
I'm so happy He whispers in my ear, "this is my wallet"
He grabs my wallet with his powerful hands
I'm ready
I open my wallet for GabeN
He starts taking the money
It hurts but I do it for games
I can feel my finances flying away
I try to resist the urge
I want to please GabeN
He roars a mighty roar as he fills my library with games
My roommate walks in
GabeN looks him straight in the eye and says "Come join us"
GabeN jumps out my window
GabeN is love, GabeN is LIFE.

In the beginning this game was very good. The rankes were very balanced. After every patch the game is going bader than it was before. Now there are many smurfers and Hackers. The ranked system is really unbalanced. The sounds of the weopens are ♥♥♥♥. For new players it is even impossible to get in the game, in case of the smurfers.
