The lights are on
What new ideas the game brings to the table and how well old ideas are presented.
How good a game looks, taking into account any flaws such as bad collision or pop-up.
Does the game’s music and sound effects get you involved or do they make you resolve to always play with the volume down?
Basically, the controller to human interface. The less you think about the hunk of plastic in your hands, the better the playability.
Flat out, just how fun the game is to play. The most important factor in rating a game.
Valve dropped a bunch of knowledge on Kotaku's Stephen Totilo, going
into details on the team's goals for the upcoming PlayStation
Network/Xbox Live Arcade/PC/Mac version of the classic shooter. In
short, Counter-Strike: GO is a slight update to CS: Source with an
emphasis on inviting new players while giving hardcore veterans what
they want.Global Offensive aims to bring
Counter-Strike's core five-on-five lethal gameplay to new audiences.
Some maps have been tweaked, like the notoriously imbalanced Dust and
Aztec. Valve added a few new weapons and a "casual" mode that removes
the in-game cash requirement for setting up your loadout between rounds.
Other than that, this title is the Counter-Strike you know and love
with modern matchmaking and community support.One amusing
tidbit: Xbox 360 players will have their own matchmaking pool, while
PC/Mac/PS3 players will share a separate one. On the plus side, you can
plug in a keyboard and mouse to your PS3 so that you aren't at a brutal
disadvantage against PC/Mac players.Read Totilo's full article
for a bunch of interesting tidbits from Valve's Chet Faliszek and Ido
Magal, including what they think about CS:GO's potential as an eSport
("If it happens, that's nice"), why dying in CS isn't bulls--- ("You
died because you made the wrong choice), and why Valve decided to do
another quasi-remake of Counter-Strike in the first place ("We got
excited").Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is scheduled to come out for PC, Mac, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 early next year.
I might get it for all three!
CS was my all time favorite game I would love to get this next installment but I am having trouble deciding if I should buy the PS3 version (as i hate playing shooters on PS3 for some reason) but if it comes with a code to download on my PC then that might be the best route. Or the xbox version since I enjoy the controller more and have a larger friend pool on live than PSN, plus I like lounging on my couch
side note though I really hope they push the competitive aspect of the game with sponsored tourneys as that is what made CS so enjoyable in the past for me not the pubs
Bring. It. On.
"Mac is going to be killed because of lack of 3rd party mouses, and PS3 is going to be killed because Mouse and key>Controller."
LOL? Most computer mice are plug & play and all Razer gaming mice have Mac drivers.
If it's using a new engine, then HL3 is on it's way, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
xbox users can't play with the pc/mac community? That just screams stupid.
If Xbox 360 can't play with PC, then I'll get it for the PC.
For sure going to get this when it comes out for the 360! Loved playing the original and source, actually I still am playing source.
