    Molotov and Decoy nades sound sweet. I'm interested to see if this will be F2P.

    See i'll act against that because F2P annoyed me when TF2 got it because it added alot of noobs and made me feel upset that i'd paid but they haven't.
    I guess with CsGO it'll be different because I wont have been playing it yet. On the other hand this will allow people who wouldn't normally but CSS to play it and they'll probably play very badly and block me every two seconds.

    Nope.avi

    I saw it on other forums yesterday, but then I noticed there was no thread on TF2maps.net, so I made one.

    The way I look at a purchase is amount of time spent vs money spent on it.

    I aim for a £1/hour of play ratio, seems fair enough. I paid £15 for The Orange Box on Christmas 2007. As of this post, Steam Community Stats tells me I've spent 1184.4 hours playing Orange Box games.

    This works out at just over £0.01 per hour. This does not include time spent in the Source SDK, nor does it take into account money I've made from The Orange Box (Swamp Theme). EDIT 2: Just done the math, with these, I've been making just over £0.07 an hour! Woo!

    Overall, I'm pleased with my purchase, and I'm not annoyed at all for it going free to play. If it means there is more time to enjoy the game I bought (nearly 4 years ago!) with a kickass community, then I'd say my money was well spent.

    Probably the best £15 I've ever spent.

    EDIT: But yeah, on topic; CS! Woo!

    ...

    This isn't why I wanted a new CS. I hope that's false information, because if I'm not running a server with a rotation, I'm 100% not interested in this game.

    To be fair, that's what interests me most, because most CSS servers I ever went on were full to the brim with plugins and mods - I'd rather get in a lobby with 5 friends and look for a game than trying to squeeze into a server one-by-one. It does have dedicated servers still.

    Thanks :D !

    The lighting is loooking sexy and so are the maps and guns. Also thank the gods for new gun sounds.

    I'm not sure why some of those guns have un-usable sights on them but oh well I guess It's P90 all over again.

    The only thing i've got against it is this

    Ohh noes D:

    Sounds like I don't need to worry anyways, from the reddit thread it seems like the "Casual" mode is server rotation.

    Wait, doesn't this mean something related to Half-life won't be shown until 2014?

    Thank you so much for posting that, I was horribly disappointed that Valve could have produced a trailer that was so substandard... I mean that skybox and the fact it was so stylised, almost cartoony, really disappointed me. But i'm glad to know it's not real

    Exactly. Valve doesn't do out-of-engine CGI trailers. I could not believe it as I watched it. Let's see how many fall for it \o/
