Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

For all of you old school Counter-Strike players, the upcoming release of Global Offensive is much anticipated. The full release is scheduled for early this year and we can only hope that it doesn’t get pushed back past Q1. This year at CES, Plantronics was using an online multi-player demo of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to showcase its gaming headsets. Counter-Strike 1.6 is the reason that I (Speedway) got into computers in the first place, so you can imagine my excitement when I walked up to the Plantronics booth to find Global Offensive running on a computer. But, it got even better when I found out that it was in fact a playable demo. Dust 2 was the map loaded up and I was on the terrorist side with another player, facing off against two counter-terrorists on the other team, who were AFK, so some things never change.

In the picture below, you can see I am standing in the terrorist spawn holding a Desert Eagle. As you can see, the back of the spawn location is reflecting off the back of the gun, but what you can’t see is when the model would turn from side to side, the sun light would reflect off of the shiny .50 Cal D Eagle, which was pretty impressive. Past that, the maps have gotten a big overhaul and look great with many added props everywhere. Needless to say, anyone who is excited about the release of the latest CS installment, given the improvements to the game, will be a happy camper. Just don’t be a camper on the terrorist side, or you will probably still get an earful.
