An article on Hungary's MSN portal about teen sexuality uses an interesting image to illustrate its point. And by interesting I mean amazing.
For those who can't instantly see the disaster zone, it's a Holy Trinity of PhotoShop disasters. For starters, either the main is playing on a cardboard box, or the screenshot overlay was so poorly implemented that it looks like he's playing on a microwave door.

This mighty helpful YouTube video shows just how far Valve's shooter Counter-Strike has come over the past eight years, between the release of the landmark version 1.6 and subsequent revisions like Condition Zero, Source and the upcoming Global Offensive.
All shots are from the game's trademark level, de_dust2, and show that the biggest addition to GO isn't the lighting or fancy textures. It's the power lines.
The beta for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive went live yesterday. Know what that means? Yup! People filming themselves playing it then uploading it to the internet so we can all see.
