12 years ago, in a world of Quake and Unreal, Counter Strike came out as a mod to the original Half Life game.

 

Fresh off the press, Valve announces Counter Strike; Global Offensive! Not much is known about the game yet, aside from what is stated in the article. Will be playable at PAX and is aiming for a release in early 2012.

 

In Valve Time, expect it in late spring or early summer.

Eh, I always thought Source was 1.6's predecessor. But I'm still pretty excited for what they will come up with, especially with new the new weapons. But most likely it'll just be a visual update of the old model though... they're probably going to play it safe.

So in case anybody missed it, Gabe Newall went to Germany for Gamescon, to talk about DOTA 2 (and its accompanying tourney), to "officially" unveil CS: GO (GO GO), and to delay Episode 3 some more.

 

Gaben talked about how GO is going to be a cross-platform gaming experience, which means we would be able to play with the prepubescents on the consoles. My memory hasn't been quite the same lately, but I saw a video during the G4TV interview with Gaben and now it's on the steam page. I can't remember if that video was there before, either way its there and it showcases a few of the graphics, which looks like it builds on CS's style, where it doesn't look like a TF2 mod or a COD rip-off. It also changes the store's interface drastically (taking a radial design rather then what it is now in CS:S). There's also a new batch of screenshots released, all viewable on the Steam Page.

 

Since I'm not at my computer right now, I cannot provide a link to the video where Geoff talks to Newall, but I'm sure with a little bit of searching you can find it on youtube or on gametrailers.
