"My video is way out of date on this one but CS remains an extremely popular multiplayer shooter for a very good reason.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

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- Kids saying outdated your mom jokes that can be found during the age of neanderthals.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)

I don't understand why you would pay $288.60 for a red knife. A red VIRTUAL knife that you can't hold or use to cut things. Not to mention you can buy a decent knife for a cheaper price- scratch that, you can buy a real version of this skin for around $50. People compain about microtransactions in mobile games, but this is a PC game so it's totally okay. $288.60 FOR A FAKE KNIFE? WHY???

I don't have a soul so here's a reciepe for a pizza:

Ingredients
250 ml semi-skimmed milk
1 x 7 g sachet of dried yeast
2½ teaspoons caster sugar
400 g gluten-free bread flour , plus extra for dusting
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 large free-range egg
olive oil
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
FOR THE TOPPING
½ bunch of fresh basil
1 clove of garlic , peeled
1 x 400 g tin of plum tomatoes
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 x 125 g balls of buffalo mozzarella

Method
Preheat the oven to 220ºC/425ºF/gas 7. Place a pizza stone or a large baking tray in the oven to heat up.

Heat the milk in a small pan over a low heat until lukewarm, then place 50ml into a jug with the yeast and sugar. Mix well, then set aside for a few minutes until starting to bubble.

Meanwhile, sieve the flour, xanthan gum and salt into a large bowl, then make a well in the middle. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and the remaining milk, then pour it into the well, along with the yeast mixture. Gradually bring the mixture together with a fork until it forms a smooth dough.

In a small cup, combine the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar, then quickly knead it into the mixture. Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towel, then leave to prove in a warm place for around 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

Meanwhile, make the topping. Pick the basil leaves and set aside, then finely chop the stalks and the garlic. Heat a splash of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, then add the basil stalks and garlic.

Cook for a few minutes, or until golden.
Pour in the tinned tomatoes, break them up with the back of a wooden spoon, then cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until thickened.

Transfer to a blender along with half the reserved basil leaves, blitz until smooth, then season to taste.
Once doubled in size, divide the dough into four equal-sized pieces on a flour-dusted surface. Roll out until roughly 30cm in diameter and 2mm thick.

Place the pizza bases onto the preheated pizza stone or baking tray (you’ll need to do this in batches), then spread over the tomato sauce, leaving a rough 2cm gap around the edge.

Tear over the mozzarella, then pop in the hot oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and crisp. Scatter the reserved basil leaves on top, then serve.
