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.

"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.

No I didn't act like it was a bad thing. You pulled that one right out of thin air.

Unless someone still plays the older CS games in 2012, they are going to find the transition to CSGO a little jarring if they've been playing modern FPS games. Even if you insist on believing that every single change to FPS games since CS has been bad, odds are most people will be used to a lot of those things now. All I suggested was that those are unsure should give the older games a whirl to see if they're still comfortable with it's design.
