    You mean models?

    Yes, the deagle looks like it's straight from L4D2 but the AK is a completely original model (it was stated in an interview)

    plus the deagle with that new texture actually looks way better than in L4D2 IMHO

    Edited:

    So I finally put my beta code into Steam and I get the message its already been activated. Turns out my friend wrote down my code on scratch paper and used it for himself.

    I guess you could try contacting Steam Support

    Re-post for new thread.


    Also on a similar topic to the video, is it just me (it probably is) but is it easier to get kills by just randomly shooting now. I don't remember spraying being so damn effective in CSS.
    Paused video after "Let the Bod..."

    Edited:

    Also why are Valve even doing this, they havent made any engine improvements and it looks like absolute shit to its competitors, plays horribly, and spraying is so effective its insane. CS 1.6 actually required some skill and such when it came to gunplay-and played alot better. This pretty much eliminates this game for me, poor graphics compared to other games of its kind for 2011 and horrible gameplay, sure gameplay can sometimes make up for horrid graphics but not this time because both previous games are funner, harder and generally play better while looking the exact same. And they don't have shitty matchmaking bullshit and this rank crap.

    This just was released in beta, it is not even close to being finished

    for a Source game this is really impressive, I even have a friend who plays Battlefield who was impressed by the graphics, and gameplay will be fixed through testing

    stop complaining about a game that isn't done, Valve has stated that the game is subject to change

    Its a beta, its what Valve sees as nearly complete. Its in testing phase. The graphics feel stale, its more of a question of why would I play the closed beta when I can play a game with the same graphics, a cleaner interface and much much more.

    well, they lied, deagle and ak are both taken from l4d2, but with shitty retextures.
    l4d deagle is better, it's more shiny and reflects everything well, because it has a proper reflection map.
    csgo gun textures are lame in general, just look. notice the lack of details in general and specular maps, which is basically just repeating the diffuse, thats a bad, lazy way to do them.

    Depends, maybe if you run BF3 on low. The textures just make me *ugh* after playing games with decent graphics. Why hasant valve improved on them one bit.

    Source is flexible and that's why they continue to update it. The physics and lighting are very realistic and the graphics aren't that shabby.

    Keep in mind guys, this is a beta.. Send feedback in and it may be fixed, remember when BF3 had so much glitches and shit but on its release was mostly fine?

    I prefer CS:S over 1.6.

    You're confusing graphics with glitches. I know they both start with the letter G but that does not make them the same. Jokes aside, Source is really getting old Valve needs to update it. The "oh some peoples hardware..." is out of date. Everybody has a more then capable machine now, or atleast most people who PC game do. If you have a AGP card its not really our fault and I dislike how this is holding back the Source engine. Also the lighting in source is horrible, the shadows are horrible etc. The textures are flat etc. I'm not saying its a bad engine, its just outdated.

    Both are fun, however CS:GO is basically a CS:S spinoff with slightly more detailed geometry work in the maps, and different texturing mixed with some horrible L4D2 matchmaking and limited player amounts/ no skill involved in the gunplay.


    I mean fuck, come on even Call of duty has SSAO and other graphical features.

And what's your reasoning for saying it has "no skill"?

    They probably would have just added new features to CS:S if the CS fanbase wasn't so whiney and unpleasable.

    Annoyingly we live in an age where whenever a new game comes out people will find ways to flak and poke at it.
    I get annoyed reading people who have played the game and haven't say, a big claim I keep seeing is there is no recoil, it's consolised, ugly and the models and animations look horrible, which = a big flop of a game.

    People keep ignoring the fact that is a BETA, an early one at that.

    You've also go to remember that despite it being called a beta, it's actually more of an alpha, since there are very few maps/gamemodes/weapons and as Valve say, everything is up for change.

    When it comes to CS games, graphics have never been a massive concern. 1.6 is still the most played game on Steam (afaik). Honestly, who cares that its on the Source engine?

    1.6 is most played because it runs on pieces of shit, and the gameplay outweighs the graphics by far. CS:S is the same. CS:GO has shit gameplay and shit graphics so its disqualified.
    They should reintroduce AS_ maps, thats the only way they would get me to buy this shit.

    Figured I'd dump some pictures from the game. It's pretty for a Source game.








    Click 'em for larger res.

    As for how the game plays, it's pretty fun. Lots of people say it reminds them of 1.6, personally I think it reminds me of Source, so I dunno. There's this one obnoxious movement bug where you can strafe side to side and move faster than you normally could, but hopefully that will be fixed.

    In fact any media outlet that was at either PAX (Kotaku) or Eurogamer (RPS) must have got a key or they didn't bother going along to one of the booths. Plus I'm fairly sure valve would send one to you if you were a nice respectable news outlet.

    there's a difference between saying "source is better than 1.6" and "i like source more than 1.6" hence why people aren't yelling at him.

    Just as an FYI, if you have ANY problems with the CS:GO beta's gameplay, Valve is 100% receptive to it. The direction of the game is in our hands, literally.

    But keep in mind that the game was tested prior to the current "closed beta" by a decent number of pro CS players. They had their own private forum and private build, and they were beta testing before any of us were. So if you think the gameplay is "dumbed down," talk to them and ask their opinion.
