So guess what i found out this morning.. That's right, a new counterstrike is coming out.
I know right? THAT'S SO AWSOME! I don't know how many of you guys played the older
counter strikes, but I've been playing counterstrike since 1.6, and I still ocasionally
jump on and play a couple of rounds. I loved that game man, and i had a good nostalgia
moment when i saw the trailer for the new "Counter-strike: Global Offensive" game.
I just remembered, how my sommers would be spent on playing css all night, then get up,
play some more and then go out and skate with my friends. All summer. Epic..
now let's talk about the game itself.
In the trailer, I noticed a couple of things.
1. The graphics is not amazing, or on Call of duty/battlefield level. But I have to say,
it does look pretty damn good for a counter-strike game.
2.New weapons. Weapons everywhere! Now for me this is a good thing, because let's be honest,
we are all a bit tired of the old weapons. And then plus, more gun veriaty is allways
good in a first person shooter.
3. New maps. This is not really a big deal to me, since there were so many good map makers
in the css and 1.6 community. But It's still pretty nice.
4. Ranked match making. AWSOME! awsome, awsome, awsome! I can not say this too much,
match making is key! This is where the cod and bf franchise fails to me, no good matchmaking.
It just makes it all the more fun, and compettetive.
5. New game modes. Now this is just like the maps, not such a big deal to me. The modding
community made tons of gamemodes by themselves in css, so GO* souldn't be a challenge.
However, having official game modes, with possibly leaderboards and such, is pretty damn cool.
Counter strike GO is coming out in 2012, realesed by the company valve. It's cross platform wich means console kiddies can play too.. *sadface*..see the trailer on steam now!
So, I'm definitely getting out. How about you? Are you as psyched as i am?
Tell me why / why not.
*Global offensive. The name of the game.
