    as this is a CS post, i recently saw a vid about a CS that had amazing graphics in what was described as a teaser trailer. It was called "counter strike Online", has anyone heard of it and if so, when the hell am i gonna see it on steam. The vid i saw looked too good to be fake i.e. no one making a fake vid would make one that good looking.

    Counter Strike Online is a oriental version, it's pretty old.

    Played it last night for 5 minutes, it's exactly the same as CSS used to be but they've added to nemesis / revenge system from TF2 and DOD:S. Also they have added achievements.

    People ingame claim the graphics have been improved and it looks better, but they are speaking ****!

    Some new maps or a graphics overhaul wouldnt have gone a miss! Waste of time!

    Missed it :( Mind you I hadn't used steam for 24 days, damn work...
    CS Online is just 1.6 for Koreans or something, somehow MMO style...
    Think this means CS:S is with us for a bit longer? Delaying CS:New more?
    Also any idea what the acheivements actually are? 144 sounds alot, hopefully its not "X Kills with Y Gun" or something boring.
