CounterStrike claimed a good part of my college life. Everytime I sit down it'd be a 3-5 hr session before I knew it. I know some people are even worse than that. haha


Yea.
I actually think i'm about to delete CS:Go from my PS3. Not because it's bad. Because it's so good, and I kicked the CS habit a decade ago... yet have already played maybe 7 hours today. it's past 4am right now.

the last thing i need is a CS addiction again. as much as i want. to. play.

it's so good.

Am i the only one who hated it? I mean, i played it with dualshock and the controls suck balls. The dualshock features are very limited, the game is probably a lot better with a keyboard. And please, i´m a consoler owner, if i wanted to play some game with keyboard/mouse i would play it on PC. I´m a huge CS fan, but that thing disapointed me. Guess sony will have my money next week, with the launch of THPS.

(I will apologize beforehand for my bad english , as i´m not a native english speaker. And you guys seriously need to stop correcting each other, how old are you?)

CS is a real mans shooter! They still have that "break that glass" stuff? Where the floor could be shot out and it was like a last man standing thing...or maybe that was just a mod. Im too old to remember.

It was a fan-created map. Man, i really enjoyed that map.

I have no idea. Maybe for the PC version. And then maybe they release the best created maps in DLC form. That´s a lot of maybes.

Every button is mappable and sensitivity is really fine tunable (vertical and horizontal separate). I have my sensitivity at .95, .9. (Default is something like .5, .45 or something, which I agree, doesn't work for me, especially not online where you need to be fast).

I've changed almost every button (I prefer firing with R2, for example) and upped the sensitivity, so for me the controls are dead on. And there's a fantastic ability to customize it to your liking.

I can't think of another game with this level of care put into the mapping systems (most games can't even be mapped, and here, in addition to options like 'cycle secondary weapons', you can also hotkey specific grenades, etc, which is very useful), and to put icing on the cake, they gave you the option of using keyboard/mouse which is something ps3 users have been clamoring for in MANY games that might benefit from it... for them to actually do it is commendable.

Complaining about the controls is more indicative of you not tuning them or giving them a chance than any problem with them, because honestly, i don't know what else they could have done. They did far more than most.

Imo, the only valid complaint about the controls would be the lack of a 'down the sights' view, which is more a gameplay issue than a control issue. Honestly, though, that's something I got used to quickly. But since everything else can be set to your liking... yea, I don't buy that the 'controls suck'. And how in the world are "dualshock features are very limited" when you can re-map everything?

You can't aim down the sights in Counterstrike? That's how I play every FPS. I'm glad I didn't buy it.

You didn't have to because shooting from the hip with any AR was dead accurate and took skill to handle the recoil properly. You'd probably enjoy the MP5 though, because you could still spray n' pray like a noob. ;)

If I want to aim down the sights, what makes you think I spray and pray? Handling recoil is easy, you shoot in bursts and slightly hold down on the right stick, big deal. Everything that has been said about Counterstrike so far makes it seem like a beginner FPS, which it probably was for a lot of you.

i was wrong. you can get the plat in cs go with all offline bots. as long as they aren't on harmless difficulty. altho a few like knife vs knife and sniper vs sniper might be harder.

sniper vs sniper is easy but knife vs knife cannot be done offline

did
gold knife vs bot gold knife nothing

Hey, if you're "deadly accurate" shooting from the hip with any assault rifle, that doesn't seem like it takes much skill.

Man, I'm getting all nostalgic watching random videos of 1.6. Reminds me of my awp-whoring days. The ORIGINAL quick-scoping game ha.

Everything that has been said about Counterstrike so far makes it seem like a beginner FPS, which it probably was for a lot of you.

Because aiming down the sights gives a higher degree of control than from the hip, so you can just spray n' pray. Try doing that in CS and you'll bounce all over the place, unless you have any skill.

I've never seen someone link spray and pray with more control.

If you buy them, it should work fine. The only way you'll have an issue is if you cancel your sub since you'd need the first episode to play the rest.

Hmmm, I wonder if I should get Psychonauts. I have it on Steam (haven't played it yet) but I much prefer playing games on consoles rather than the computer.

The God of War Collection hits next week at stores also and has GoW3. So I would imagine the PSN download does.
