You Could Pre-Purchase Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

By John Walker on August 8th, 2012.

This shot always reminds me of Tomb Raider, and then I feel like I can identify with the game. I can't.

Here are some things you could do today: You could finally read that article you’ve left in your tabs for over a week now. You could give your mum a call – just to say hi. You could pre-order Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. You could high five a stranger and tell them they look amazing.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta Begins

By John Walker on November 30th, 2011.

This is what we aren't playing.

If you were lucky enough to receive a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive beta invite (and we weren’t) then you’ll be pleased to learn the beta has just begun. We don’t care, because we don’t have an invite, so it’s pretty irrelevant to us. The beta, that arrived via Valve Time a touch late, will scale up (when perhaps we’ll be invited, maybe), aiming for a release “early 2012″. Which could mean any time between now and the eventual entropic destruction of the universe. Apparently it’s only a teeny weeny bit of the game, so doesn’t even require a pre-load for excited people who are able to play it, which we aren’t.
