Well look at the DLCs for COD, or BF3 and you only get a few new maps. This is an entirely new game, that looks a ton better, new guns, and new maps. Theres also going to be tons of awesome mini games that will come out of a new CS.
This is a update to CSS that they are calling a new game. The framework and physx are the mostly the same. The only thing I have seen that is updated is the models and skins. There is a few new weapons but not much. If I wanted CSS I would play CSS but I hate CSS so....

bah, you just haven't played CSS with the right people and on the right server :) minigame servers are the best.

I have played CSS for years along with running over 5 servers and 8 clans. Its just not the original.

I got so upset with the mechanics of the game and will not play it anymore. I get my CS fix by hopping on to the last of the good CS 1.6/CZ servers.

Supposedly they worked with 1.6 pro gamerrs and it's suppodsed to be more like the original.

For $13 it's a steal. Sure beats shelling out $60 for a new COD.
I played the crap out of the original and CS:source, both were fun if you didn't take things too seriously.

The hit registry was the biggest complaint in CSS. When you could spray the ground and get a mysterious headshot is were it became ridiculous!

It's all your fault MM :rolleyes:


But really, I think it's not bad. Hit registry still needs some work. It's definitely better than CSS. I just had the expectation that it was going to be a lot more like 1.6, which it isnt, sad to say. But Im definitely going to continue playing until I get the hang of this game. Versus Source, I didn't do half bad on the games I jumped into. Broke even at least, and others had a 2:1 k/d ratio. In due time, we'll see if Valve can make it better with some minor updates *cough* hitbox registry *cough*

Some of you guys sound like Crazyeyes now. "Im not a crappy shot. Its the hit boxes fault! I'm gonna go plant some Christmas trees so I can eat a chili dog and then write an angry email to DICE. They need to know I'm an awesome shot and thier game is broken."

The beta was released yesterday to anyone who has bought the game, but the beta is so damn buggy. It freezes and crashes left and right. 5 minutes within joining a server. Hopefully the official build won't be so bad.

I'm no good at this game and don't really care but I got it for my son who still remembers the good old CS days before COD4 changed the rule of the game. Me, I'm a slowhand guy, can't compete and really hate fast paced multiplayer shooters. lately I even developed some motion sickness. When BC2 came out I knew I found my daily addiction and BF3 is just what everybody really needs in these kind of games. Once you see a building crumble when you fire your tank at it there's no going back. But CSGO is fun and considering how many hours you can put into it with some friends for just 10Euro it's a purchase.

What I meant to say and what I should've said, is that when it comes out, I hope the shooting pattern is VERY similar to 1.6. But I should've known since it was still based on the source engine that it would naturally be more like CSS :shadedshu
And it's true, I am a great shot.......in CS 1.6....:D

I've played it a lot the past 2 days and no crashes.
Maybe your system is messed up. You have problems in Skyrim and now this.

I bought it for lack of intersting other games and it plays good, looks good, but the gameplay is still the shitty old CS ping pong bang bang... but for the ocassional 5 minute duck range shooting before going to dinner it is ok.
