Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in August

Valve announces Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is planned for release on August 21st for Windows, OS X, PlayStation Network, and Xbox LIVE Arcade at the same price of $15.00 across the board:

Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) is targeted for release on August 21, 2012.

To be available via the Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam (for PC and Mac), CS: GO will expand upon the team-based action gameplay pioneered when Counter-Strike was launched almost 13 years ago (CS beta 1, August 1999).

CS: GO will be sold for approximately $15 on all platforms.

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO introduces new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

Developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment, the title will be playable in the Sony and Microsoft booths this week at E3 in Los Angeles, CA.

I haven't played vanilla CS yet (Casual and Competitive in GO) I've only played a tiny bit of Destruction (a new de_ infused GG) and metric shit ton of Arms Race (GG DM). I win over 80% of Arms Race maps.

The bots are adaptive based on your skill (seems to go off of KDR). If I get knife very quickly on Arms Race (therefore have a good KDR) the next map the bots will be at hacks level. Other times I enter a game full of bad players and the bots will be terrible... It's pretty neat.

As far as my overall impressions go... I like it a lot, it's an improvement in graphics and (IMO) an improvement in shot registration and aiming mechanics. They added 2 new shotguns, 2 new pistols, a new sub, a new rifle, a new machine gun and a molotov. Love the new radar, the inclusions of GG as two official modes, and all the new built in commmunity/stats features.

In the end though it's still CS, if you like CS you'll probably like it (unless you want to nitpick, waaaah they ruined CS!) but if you don't like CS you likely won't change your mind for GO.
