    i think about half the people who are in the beta on facepunch got it from personguy when he held the little poem contest and the other half got it from conventions.

    then we have smashman and snowcanary who are a part of sts and wiki.

    Edited:

    also i thought you died zips ever since garry closed down your newsbot
    Nope, I've been around. Even after a ban (or was it two?) and my newsbot being replaced by the BBC (wait, really?), I'm still kickin'. I pop up in threads here and there with some exclusive news stuff I figure you guys would like, largely keeping to Valve or Steam related game stuff.

    I could probably say something in the DOTA 2 thread and talk about the beta there. Super Monday Night Combat is also fun. The upcoming KF update too, but I'm under strict NDA for that until a particular time.

    But anyway, I do plan to do more of these comparisons if/when Valve adds more maps to the beta. This, while time consuming, was a lot of fun if for only getting to see just how much the games changed in terms of map layout.

    Based on that tentative list of maps posted earlier in the thread, there are some great revivals that even missed a Source release, so it will be very interesting to see what happens. Plus it's REALLY crazy actually having Counter-Strike news on the site again.

    Okay, just to clean it up, I've edited it.

    Pics :
    Whiteboard with names of pelope from HL2.


    New vending machine skin
    \
    Found second new skin of vending machine


    I know, it's just crowbar, but could it be HL2 reference ? (CT playermodel)


    Videos :
    Video of that chicken posted, but with animations.

    At this second, I'm making video about hostages models.

    The ct looks like he has a snow pickaxe thingy more than a crowbar, and that would add evidence to possibly a new map because somebody else found a skybox with snowy mountains.

    So I feel like playing some CS because of this thread, should I play CS:S or try CS.1.6 or CZ since I got them from a friend when they were on sale for 3 bucks in a pack.

    Valve should remodel all the maps to have unpolitically correct jokes and stuff about the place, and then rename it Counter-Strike: Globally Offensive.

    Counter-Strike: Source had terrible, terrible animations, while TF2s animations were just flawless.
    GO's animations don't look that much better either

    Why are people hating on CSS? The way it works is so tightly wound and it's still the most fun I've ever had online.

    I loved the models. They are by far my favourite of any game. They just feel so right, for a game.

    Edited:

    If every game had the css models I'd be a happy man

    Hello guys, check it ModDB.
    I've ported de_aztec map from CS:S to CS:GO. So, it's fully working map, including global achievments and map selection icon in menu!

    CSS for mods, CZ for shits and giggles, and CS for redirect server list infection.

    Some counter-terrorist units carry crowbars to pry open doors when rushing in. Could be an easter egg or just some equipment.

    That was quite funny. I think it was moreso the reaction both from myself and the angry people that led to the ban, not necessarily the news tease itself though, which ended up being true.

    upcoming kf update i wonder what it could be (christmas)
    Not quite. Not wanting to derail this thread, I'll simply say to check out the Tripwire Interactive Facebook page. It's probably not what you're expecting.

    The fuck?

    Do i see a revolver?

    Is there weapons that they are hiding here or were they just cut from the game?

    EDIT:

    If this is true the revolver will be my bitch 24/7 especially if its accurate.

    EDIT 2:

    Sent an email to Robin to find out if he knows anything about this.

    EDIT 3:

    The one in the middle looks mysteriously like an RPG and the one on the lower right looks ALOT like a grenade launcher.
    Thats "Riddle" is from Killing Floor.

    Instead of making another video as a comparison and taking up far too much of my time trying to edit everything together, I made a screenshot comparison between CS1.6, CS: Condition Zero, CS: Source, and CS: Global Offensive.

    It shows off differences between near identical positions in Dust and Dust 2.

    http://csnation.net/content.php?818-...ust-and-Dust-2

    It's two pages. There's a button on the top and bottom of the article that will take you to the second page that showcases the Dust 2 shots. Figured some here might like this.
    I remember the days when CS-Nation was in the News Node.

    I've never been able to successfully listen for footsteps and deduct that it was an enemy.
    I have this problem in CS:GO as well, at least in terms of figuring out where the sound is coming from.

    And I don't think it's just me either, someone else in the last game I played also complained about it. Positional audio is all weird for some reason.
