    My god.... Counter Strike: Source has an update!

    There is a new beta for CS: S with muti core support, stats recording, awards, kill cam and more! It's only about 2 years too late! Let's hope it's for the better.

    It still has a huge player base. Most are 12 year olds.

    Re: My god.... Counter Strike: Source has an update!

    It is one of the best FPS games though, easily beats COD and Battlefield....

    I saw that update today but its a beta and i tried to download it and the system said they already have enough beta participants . One thing thats good though... you dont have to pay for it!

    Re: My god.... Counter Strike: Source has an update!

    No sign of Episode 3, or was it 4 ?
    That I'd still pay money for.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: My god.... Counter Strike: Source has an update!

    I wouldnt say that CS:S is better or worse that Battlefield, ok they are both 1st PS, but that is where the comparisons stop. I love and play games so you could say im a fan boy of both

    anyway ... glad to see that they are making some changes/improvements.

    Re: My god.... Counter Strike: Source has an update!

    CS:S still enjoys popularity in the competitive scene while there might not be so many leagues anymore, it has still endured after all these years.

    From a competitive standpoint I'm a little concerned judging from youtube footage and comments I've read over steam forums.

    They've supposedly done something with the strafing and acceleration making it 2 high and reduced the recoil on some weapons which I'm not too happy about.

    I've been waiting a long time for a CS:S update because its been criminally neglected until now but not some superficial UI and achievements changes which I'm sure some will farm for the sake of it.

    I'm not trying to sound ungrateful/elitist but it just seems like the game will turn into some poor man's BC2/MW2 when most CS:S players just wanted new maps and fixes for exploits like bunnyhopping and the much maligned hitboxes.

    I'll reserve final judgement until I get to play it for myself.

    Yes you are correct, i was in a rush as my PSU had broken at this point . But yes battlefield and CSS are the top games, they are in different leagues but both of the easily beat Cod tbh.

    so they have changed the actual game mechanics? I just wanted the bugs sorting and some new maps, I hate it when you spend years learning a game then they change it!

    Re: My god.... Counter Strike: Source has an update!

    My god..... I ain't played CS for, like, 10 years or something. Ok, that's an exaggeration but back in the Beta 5/6.2 days it was the King of online shooters. And I was totally amazing at it. Now, I'd rather be on the open maps of Bad Company 2.

    I think my age is catching up with me. I'd get pwn'd on CS now!!

    Well that seems to be the impression I'm getting off the steam forums but I'm gonna take it with a grain of salt given because some of the criticism is contradictory.

    While I've not "mastered" the game entirely, I've still become pretty accustomed to it over the years and any significant changes to gameplay is a mistake imo.

    Granted it'll probably invigorate interest from the casual pubbers who still play or those lost interest years ago.

    I think it would be a grave mistake to the alienate the competitive community, but I just think we're going to have to see how this Beta plays out.

    If my suspciions are true then I just hope it'll go the way of that dreadful dynamic pricing nonsense heh.

    Well things like the kill cam are server side options which can be turned off.

    They have finally removed bunnyhopping, that goodness.

    The only thing that I have read that could be an issue is they are saying that movement speed is slightly slower
