I'm so incredibly happy gun game is going official. 99% of my CS time is spent on gun game servers.
So I tried playing last night. Menu was nice, the music was odd but nice, tried to join a game and my computer exploded. Time to get a new computer.

New source textures for mapping? +1!
[QUOTE=rezOnance;33527478]Source?[/QUOTE] Chet has said it in a lot of interviews
Are people allowed to upload the music files? If so, please do, cause I crave soundtracks
if you want to make the viewmodel fov higher type this in the console: viewmodel_offset_y 6 edit: hope they remake de_phoenix for cs:go too, that map is wonderful
Is there shell ejection depicted on the L4D2-style weapons? I think being able to leave that out is part of Valve's love for this new viewmodel style (the only non-pistol that ejects shells in their last "modern" shooter, L4D2, is the AK-47 and it actually ejects unfired cartridges for some reason).
Looks amazing! Hopefully I can get a CS:GO beta key and try it out :D
[QUOTE=rezOnance;33527478]Source?[/QUOTE] it's been been confirmed in several different interviews by now
[QUOTE=Mech Bgum;33520184]i just have found the names of some csgo maps[/QUOTE]Embassy sounds interesting.
definitely looking forward to this game, a new counter-strike needed to be released most definitely. nice thread also, answers a lot of good questions i was wondering about myself.

Figured I'd dump some pictures from the game. It's pretty for a Source game.

As for how the game plays, it's pretty fun. Lots of people say it reminds them of 1.6, personally I think it reminds me of Source, so I dunno. There's this one obnoxious movement bug where you can strafe side to side and move faster than you normally could, but hopefully that will be fixed.
i dislike that theyre using rimlighting, its cartoony i thought after the l4d games they didnt want to use it anymore
I prefer the CS:S minimap tbh
So I finally put my beta code into Steam and I get the message its already been activated. Turns out my friend wrote down my code on scratch paper and used it for himself. :pwn:
[QUOTE=Butthurter;33532267]i dislike that theyre using rimlighting, its cartoony i thought after the l4d games they didnt want to use it anymore[/QUOTE] it highlights the silhouettes well, so i'm sure they will keep using it everywhere. it doesnt look that cartoonish wit a good lighting btw [QUOTE][IMG]http://media.steampowered.com/apps/csgo/blog//2011/11/csgohome1.jpg[/IMG][/QUOTE]

ported l4d2 skins to csgo, much better, especially the deagle.

Yes, the deagle looks like it's straight from L4D2 but the AK is a completely original model (it was stated in an interview) plus the deagle with that new texture actually looks way better than in L4D2 IMHO [editline]2nd December 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=superdinoman;33533984]So I finally put my beta code into Steam and I get the message its already been activated.

[QUOTE=icemaz;33519407]Re-post for new thread. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXMu2bP-reM[/media] Also on a similar topic to the video, is it just me (it probably is) but is it easier to get kills by just randomly shooting now. I don't remember spraying being so damn effective in CSS.[/QUOTE] Paused video after "Let the Bod..." [editline]2nd December 2011[/editline] Also why are Valve even doing this, they havent made any engine improvements and it looks like absolute shit to its competitors, plays horribly, and spraying is so effective its insane. CS 1.6 actually required some skill and such when it came to gunplay-and played alot better. This pretty much eliminates this game for me, poor graphics compared to other games of its kind for 2011 and horrible gameplay, sure gameplay can sometimes make up for horrid graphics but not this time because both previous games are funner, harder and generally play better while looking the exact same. And they don't have shitty matchmaking bullshit and this rank crap.

Its in testing phase. The graphics feel stale, its more of a question of why would I play the closed beta when I can play a game with the same graphics, a cleaner interface and much much more.
I don't know about you, but some of the screenshots look almost like Battlefield 3.

[QUOTE=fruxodaily;33534622]I don't know about you, but some of the screenshots look almost like Battlefield 3.[/QUOTE] Depends, maybe if you run BF3 on low. The textures just make me *ugh* after playing games with decent graphics. Why hasant valve improved on them one bit.
[QUOTE=ripple3000;33534636]Depends, maybe if you run BF3 on low. The textures just make me *ugh* after playing games with decent graphics. Why hasant valve improved on them one bit.[/QUOTE] Source is flexible and that's why they continue to update it. The physics and lighting are very realistic and the graphics aren't that shabby. Keep in mind guys, this is a beta.. Send feedback in and it may be fixed, remember when BF3 had so much glitches and shit but on its release was mostly fine?
I'm going to be 100% honest here. I prefer CS:S over 1.6. Feels good to finally say that.
