    Definitely not the first time there's been a Quakecon-exclusive reveal (in fact, I think there's been at least one trailer or live gameplay demo every year).

    Assuming you buy in relative bulk to combat Paypal fees (or just use Bitcoin), you save roughly $0.30/key by using cash rather than buying from the Steam market. But I agree, you can't understate the...

    The text is poorly phrased, but it does actually give you Zeno Clash and the coupon (assuming Reddit is to be believed). Unfortunately that means you can't redeem the key just for the coupon if you...

    Differentiation was easy in 1.x and CS:S, but the models and the maps (via clutter and fog) in CS:GO make it much more difficult IMO; "_se" maps fix the issue for the most part. I don't think we'll...
