"My video is way out of date on this one but CS remains an extremely popular multiplayer shooter for a very good reason.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

- 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

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.

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- Kids saying outdated your mom jokes that can be found during the age of neanderthals.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

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 child graduate, you have to stop immediately." Tears welled up in his eyes, when he realised what 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 28, I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I have a slight sense of regret for never having done it, because this game gave me cancer anyway.

CS GO-Your daily stupid updates. Honestly guys I have been playing this game and every dam time I get used to the gameplay you change it up with some stupid updates. I have given up on this game just beause of that. You want to update ♥♥♥♥, update the hit boxes. The accuracy, the aim and recoil. How can a crosshair be placed on someones head and does no damage but walking with an AK does!?

This game used to be the best. Everyone was liking it and recommending it to his friends. When I started playing a year ago, I liked this game a lot.. Untill the 2016 summer craps started happening.

Valve no longer treating this game as they used to. They only care about money right now.

It is really bad to see such organisation not solving the bugs of this game.

They add crappy sounds instead of fixing the aiming bugs and the gaming bugs.

Either start fixing it soon, or simply developping it and close Conter Strike. Conter Strike 1.6 was and still going to be the best, better than your s h i t t y CSGO that you don't care about.

I still play this game after all. I still like it, but Valve no longer care about us and our enjoyment.

The game is fun. When you play it the first time, it will be hard, but Counter Strike is a competitive game, that you need to
learn your self, to practise and etc.
