Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Pre-purchases

Valve announces Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now available for worldwide pre-purchase on Steam, offering the upcoming multiplayer shooter at a 10% discount. This will also entitle customers to early access to the game's beta on August 14th, which is a week before its planned official release. Word is:

CS: GO expands on the classic team-based action gameplay that Counter-Strike pioneered. Featuring an arsenal of over 45 weapons, loads of maps, new game modes, new visuals, leaderboards and over 165 Steam Achievements.

Additionally, players can take advantage of huge savings on the entire Counter-Strike franchise during this week's Midweek Madness from August 7 - August 9.

If you're wondering how this game plays, go and fire up any old version of Counter Strike you might have. No matter how much you might have liked it back in the day, it was back in the day. For better or worse, shooters have changed a lot in the last 10 years and there are probably things that you just expect from one these days. Playing CS will yank you back 10 years in game design. If you find yourself comfortable and enjoying CSS or CS1.6 just like you used to, then by all means go ahead and get CSGO. It's a fairly decent remake of the core CS gameplay without rocking the boat too much.

"Yank you back"? You act like that's a bad thing. Most modern shooters are pretty bland. Regenerating health, large numbers of generic hitscan weapons that are only slight variations of one another, ranking systems that force you to unlock weapons, items and modes, simplistic traversal mechanics... these are not good things.

Really, the only thing I want from modern shooters is the ability to create parties and easily find and join my friends online. When it comes to actual gameplay, I'll gladly go back ten years.
