Counter-Strike Global Offensive
There isn't much information out there, but there seems to be a rumor that a new game called Global Offensive is coming. Thing is, the rumor is propagated by Valve people. I'm still wondering about Tactical Intervention. http://www.tactical-intervention.com/
Will be playable at PAX Prime. Guess I'm waiting in line.
Is there any meaning to this game having AppID of 1800? Valve loves them ARG-type puzzle thingies. Also, maybe you can tell hlds to install server for appid 1800 and run a server right now! A longshot, but maybe they f'ed up?
Oh, and any of you fuckers who try to play this on XBox or PS3 are excommunicated from geekery.
I will laugh pretty hard if it's playable at PAX, but only on an Xbox. I can imagine Scott hopping from foot to foot going "But what do I doooooo? WHAT DO I DO?"
I'm not going to say that's what he'd do - are you kidding, this is Rubin, he'd just not play it and wait for it to come out on steam - but it's a funny mental image.
The truth:Not real :P
It will get hyped, it will come out, everyone will bitch and whine because of "Consoles ruining everything" and that everything is horrible and shit, and then go back to playing Source or 1.6.
It's not that I don't have any faith in Valve. It's that I don't have any faith in people, particularly the PC gaming community, Not to act like complete fucking dickheads about literally nothing.
