    This will be a day 1 purchase for me, and that says something when I usually wait for games to hit $29.99 or less if I'm interested enough about them. I'm an original CS 1.6 addict and since I don't really hear much about Global Offensive, I thought I would do a google search.

    Here's what I came up with... :toast:

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-06-04-counter-strike-global-offensive-release-date-announced

    Also, http://counterstrikego.com/ for more CS:GO info including a developer interview which is somewhat interesting as he touches on topics such as recoil, info from the community, etc.
    Valve has announed this info so you KNOW its official.

    I think I'll have to skip it if they're planning on using the Source engine.

    Well, apart from all that, they did say that people will be able to try it before they buy it. So your not forced into spending the $15 that will be wasted if it wasn't everything you thought it would be.

    How about something that isn't over 10 years old. I also never implied that they were going to use Unreal or any other company's engine. Source is antiquated, simple as that.

    Source Engine used in latest Half-Life Episodes is far from 10 years old and it doesn't look like 10 years old either. I'm more concerned of it's netcode which is total crap as already experienced with CS:S...

    Yeah right, what they said there is that we in the EU will pay 15 EUR for it and others will pay 15 USD for it...

    I would like HL3 instead please!

    $15 ain't that bad even for a mere refresh. I do hate how they consoled the interface
