[QUOTE=Reimu;34348087]Uhh CoD and Halo never even tried to be CS. There was always a different gameplay flow found in CoD and Halo. CS was always about balancing survival with objective, Halo and CoD never worked towards that balance and instead always focused on objective more than survival. Games like Red Orchestra and Killing Floor are much more inspired by Counter-Strike. Not Halo and CoD. Wow, way to stereotype. Just check my Steam profile, I've played my fair share of time on MW2, Black Ops, and even some MW3. About 140 hours a piece, save for MW3, which I can't stomach and therefore only have about 20 or 30 hours on. Likewise 4 or 5 years ago I was crazy for Halo: CE on the PC. Had some good times playing. Both games are fun, but they're not as good as games like CS, Red Orchestra, early Battlefield, and Unreal.[/QUOTE] Red Orchestra seems like it was inspired more by the old Battlefield games rather than Counter-Strike to me. [QUOTE=Meatpuppet;34341215]you completely missed my point. CS was one of the first games to bring the "warzone, lots of guns, lots of bullets at once, but you still need strategy" type gameplay.[/QUOTE] You're pretty much describing any FPS that was ever made. Hell, you could pin Doom, Quake, or Half-Life to that.
[QUOTE=Meatpuppet;34349149]or maybe i'm just tired[/QUOTE] Yes. Because being tired means your argument isn't falling apart. Everyone knows that. GUYS HE'S TIRED HIS ARGUMENT ISN'T FALLING APART OBVIOUSLY

[QUOTE=Reimu;34347695]CS barely invented the "generic FPS," because CS has way too much of a tactical focus compared to the generic FPS out today. Games like Halo, CoD, and, say, Warhawk really don't have as much strategy as Counter-Strike does.[/QUOTE] Are you saying Halo is generic? Because under the hood it's a huge universe with a metric fuck-tonne of back story that makes Mass Effect's look like a bed-time story.
[QUOTE=Raijin;34353793]Are you saying Halo is generic? Because under the hood it's a huge universe with a metric fuck-tonne of back story that makes Mass Effect's look like a bed-time story.[/QUOTE] But does any of that "deep" back story actually matter in-game? From what I can tell, it doesn't. It's mostly third-rate sci-fi laid over a great FPS series who's plot is basically "oh man what a bunch of dickhead aliens! kill 'em all!".
[QUOTE=Ziron;34353939]"oh man what a bunch of dickhead aliens! kill 'em all!".[/QUOTE] hahaha you have no idea
[QUOTE=Raijin;34353793]Are you saying Halo is generic? Because under the hood it's a huge universe with a metric fuck-tonne of back story that makes Mass Effect's look like a bed-time story.[/QUOTE] Plot and gameplay are 100% separate of each other though, and when we talk about "generic FPS" over 80% of that is gameplay. You can have the absolutely best plot in the world but still have generic gameplay. Some of the best games around don't even have a plot, it just is what it is (like TF2 or CS).
sure is topic in here
Thread about CS Current topic is plots whoops.

Got a beta key yesterday from Steam Translations, it looks great but it's unplayable for me because I get 8 FPS outside and 20 FPS inside buildings, and no I don't have a shit computer.
I hope Valve might one day implement a zombie mode in the counter-strike series, but I doubt it. Anyhow I look forward to this game and hopefully back to doing a couple of more maps.
[QUOTE=NOCTURNATIX;34360804]I hope Valve might one day implement a zombie mode in the counter-strike series, but I doubt it. Anyhow I look forward to this game and hopefully back to doing a couple of more maps.[/QUOTE] I believe they were going to patch in a zombie mode sometime after release.
[QUOTE=DeanWinchester;34360653]Got a beta key yesterday from Steam Translations, it looks great but it's unplayable for me because I get 8 FPS outside and 20 FPS inside buildings, and no I don't have a shit computer.[/QUOTE] Personally, you aren't missing much yet anyways. It still needs some fine-tuning. Reg and hitboxes are even worse than Source. [QUOTE=NOCTURNATIX;34360804]I hope Valve might one day implement a zombie mode in the counter-strike series, but I doubt it. Anyhow I look forward to this game and hopefully back to doing a couple of more maps.[/QUOTE] Valve has actually hinted at doing just that, along with other popular mods.

[QUOTE=userman122;34337604]Have anyone played BF3? Oh God the low recoil on some of the rifles there. CS is a tactical shooter. And I hope it will never morph into MW3/BF3 style.[/QUOTE] Funny that "badatvidyagames" dumded that post. :D Looking forward to open beta. Anyone has some insight in when valve opens up the beta?
How much more detail is there in the models and maps?
[QUOTE=tesher07;34362197]How much more detail is there in the models and maps?[/QUOTE] Graphics-wise it looks to me like the best looking Source game yet, and I can finally play, turns out it was my beta nVidia drivers causing all the fps drops.
[QUOTE=tesher07;34362197]How much more detail is there in the models and maps?[/QUOTE] It's pretty detailed. About Portal 2-level detail, give or take a bit.
Made two 720p videos, will upload soon.
[QUOTE=Meatpuppet;34350194]i didn't say my argument wasn't falling apart[/QUOTE] You said "or." He's either dead or alive. He's one or the other. Your argument is either falling apart, or you were tired. If you weren't tired, why would you suggest it? If you were tired, you claim your argument wasn't falling apart. It still is.

I got a fake email that said someone sent me a copy of CS:GO beta. I almost clicked on it because it said the email came from steampowered.com, but then I realized the link was a malware. :(
[QUOTE=Meatpuppet;34363649]sue me for trying to not derail the thread! can't wait for the open beta[/QUOTE] Jeez what are you doing? You were obviously proven wrong, your argument is falling apart and you cant defend, deal with it. On-topic from Meatpuppets charade, What weapons from css are exactly missing and what ones were added? And any word from steam on Xbox Live yet? Two more things, was V.I.P confirmed and and more hints on Zombie Mode? Thanks.
I have a "meh" video about the GO4CSS mod. Some plays of the maps. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLdAmqg_qXk&list=UUWhoaMcNBrwto9kdSqXTl9g&index=2&feature=plcp[/media]
