Feature: Valve demands heavy ransom

CS GO – Operation Vanguard review

A recent study by the PEW Internet Project exposed the blindingly obvious hypocrisy of most people's attitudes towards online services. We don't want our privacy compromised, we don't think big companies can be trusted with our data, and the power of corporations like Google makes us uncomfortable. But despite all these deeply-held and very serious fears, billions of people still use the products involved. So…

The Sound Of Silencers: CS:GO Music Kits

And in "Well this is a nice idea but it would involve me not playing Jason Derulo on repeat while headshotting Ben so you can count me out" news: there are now Counter-Strike: Global Offensive music kits.What that means is when you have a music kit equipped it replaces the in-game music with music from your kit. That covers *deep breath* the main menu, round…

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies Shambles Into Open Beta

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is a weird thing. A zombified free-to-play version of dear old CS 1.6 made by not-Valve always would be but gosh, this video game! I've inadvertently played a good five hours since Nexon launched it into open beta on Tuesday. I'm baffled but fascinated. It feels like a cover-disc collection of mods passed through a portal from a world where Valve released…

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies Shambling F2P To Steam

One mode in the free-to-play Counter-Strike Online 2 sees players turn into a deadly cartoon pig. Another gives terrorists cloaking devices, and of course the game does zombies too. The original CS Online has an event starring giant bug men. In Japanese arcades, Counter-Strike Neo had sexy cyberbabes. The straight-faced man-shooter lives a fabulous double-life thanks to Valve licensing it to Asian developers, who rebuild…

Counter-Strike Update Adds Six Maps, Calms Dogs, More

How long is it before everyone copies Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update structure? The latest addition to the venerable multiplayer shooter is called Operation Breakout, and it adds six new maps for everyone to play for free. For those willing and able to pay $6, you then get a now-familiar bundle of upgrades including access to mission drops with the chance to unlock "45 exclusive…

Almost Everybody Wins: Counter-Strike Online 2

This information is coming to me via a blurry video and Google Translate, so I make only a slight claim of accuracy on this. I'm fact, I'm going to create a pseudonym to deliver it. Look over there while I change my clothes. No peeking, now! I'm shy. Right! Ready! Hello, I am Graham Journalism: Games Journalist. I used to host the late night Channel…

Counter-Struck: Tactical Intervention Out This Month

Counter-Strike will probably outlive us all. It will also probably keep bunny-hopping onward long after we've disposed of all terrorism and achieved glorious grievance-free utopia. There will be no counters or strikes. Only Counter-Strike. So it's exciting to hear that the implausibly enduring formula's original creator has decided to revisit it, and the fact that his new game, Tactical Intervention, is actually gonna be playable is pretty neat…

Feature: Game Developers Have Planted The Bomb

Tactically Intervening With Minh Le

Despite having originally released all the way back in the year 2,000 Anno Domini, CounterStrike is still - still! - the number one game being played on Steam right now. That's not even taking into account CounterStrike Source. It's an astonishing achievement, and CounterStrike's continued popularity is reason enough to pay attention to the new game from co-creator, Minh Le. That new game is Tactical…

An Hour Of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Last time we brought you news of Counter-Strike: GO (go go!), we were able to show you nine new images from the game. Nine! That's a lot of global offense. This time, prepare for an offensive overload because there is over an hour of footage waiting for you below, in the form of a competitive match between the United States and Europe. I wouldn't spoil…

Counter-Strike GO: Gun Game Mode, Screens

Valve are a canny bunch. They know that remaking Counter-Strike is sure to be met by cries of "THIS PIXEL IS ONE NANOMETRE TOO FAR TO THE LEFT!" So it makes good sense for them to look at the best mods that have created the largest audiences, and work them into the new version of the game. So it is that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will…

Counter-Strike: GO Explained Properly

Friday saw the sudden news of a brand new, all-formats Counter-Strike game, which in PC gaming news terms is probably the equivalent of simultaneously swearing in a crowdpleasing new president and announcing a world war. The coming months will be characterised by both excitement and rage, I don't doubt. What we don't know is much about it, other than that it's broadly going to be…

Revealed: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

As rumoured this morning, there really is a new Counter-Strike coming. And it's not some side-project: this sounds like a major sequel-come-relaunch of Counter-Strike for a new generation of manshoot fans. Valve have just solemnly and officially declared its existence to the world - Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, aka CS: GO, is indeed its war-lovin' name. It will feature new maps, modes, weapons, characters and social…

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Confirmed?

A thread on the Steam forums seems to confirm that rumours about a new Counter-Strike game - Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - are true, with commenter "Cliffe" (who is Valve designer chap Jess Cliffe) saying "Global Offensive". There have been a bunch of other references to it, on Twitter and so forth. And update on the ESEA Facebook page reads "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive... More info in…

Gaming Made Me: Counter-Strike

This week in our ongoing retrospective series on games journalists' most formative games, we very proudly welcome Eurogamer's god-king and operations director Tom Bramwell to the word-stage. He's here to tell you about his long years spent with arguably one of the most definitive PC games of all time, and what for one generation of gamers was a global obsession that today's shooters, no matter…

“When Will You Release Counter-Strike 2?”

Aw, bless. I share the below video not because it gives much away in terms of when and if we'll see Counter-Strike 2 (though it's certainly not a denial, which is some kind of good news at least), but because of the charming awkwardness of Gabe Newell's reaction when asked directly in front of THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE whether Valve's evergreen man-shooter will be sequelised any…

So when it came to compiling an exhaustive list of the greatest, most important PC games of all time, we realised that the only way we could articulate the importance of the…

Terror-ist: MP Blames CS For Racist Murders

There's an argument that the media shouldn't given any air to known enfant terribles - that by giving more profile to someone who spouts wild and dangerous innacuracies you only serve to further their cause. It's not one I believe, though - that would mean someone like disgraced game-haranguing UK politician Keith Vaz would essentially get away with ritually blaming the evil that men can…
