On Counter Strike Ads

Counter-Strike Gets In-Game Advertisements describes the addition of ads to Counter-Strike and Valve Did Not Approve In-Game Counter-Strike Ads is a follow-up revealing that this has been done without Valve's permission. There's more on this on Shacknews where they have learned this all seems to be arranged between server operators and an agency for the advertisers (thanks Frans). Also, a new Steam Update has a screenshot of the upcoming remake of the Militia map for Counter-Strike: Source.

I'm not in the least looking forward to this trend in gaming, but I expect that advertising will try and ruin this form of entertainment as well. It's not bad enough that we cannot go to a movie without having to sit through 20 minutes of commercials before the movie even starts, now we'll have it broadcast into our games as well. As long as some asshole thinks he can make a buck from ruining the experience I suppose it will be done.
