    Oh snap. This could be quite fun - I have fond memories of the old Counter Strike: Source. Lots of nifty mods and easy to kill 10 year olds.

    I'm very much wait and see. I haven't played CS a great deal in years simply because the other people really wind me up because I don't know every single glitch and ideal way to do things. So as a noob I await what Valve will offer.

    Part of me wants to see them turn it into a Call of Duty style hatfest just to see the reactions.

    Interested to see if Valve tries something new, particularly to try and make the game more open to new players but I can't see them doing much to change such a popular game.

    I was a CS:S player, and not a bad one at that, until I got bored of it. I really can appreciate the competitive aspect of it, but it does get a bit dull. That said, it isn't supposed to be varied.

    I'm interested to see how this turns out, it should be really good actually :)

    This is a surprising and exciting move. It seemed for a while like CoDMW3 and BF3 were the only military-themed shooters on the horizon and that, frankly, is not an appealing situation to me.

    I was never 'hardcore' into CSS but I played it a bit in 1.6 and for a few years after Source came out during secondary school. It's nice to think of a third major player coming along to shake up the CoD/BF bitch-fight, especially a player as strong as Valve with Counter-Strike.

    [Insert valid but tired concerns regarding multi-platform release, pandering to modern shooter fashions, etc.]

    Mine was just an HL2 bundle, but I bought it for Counter Strike, since the last major update I have played 742 hours (before the update probably a couple of thousand at least) had over 20,000 kills and still only 86% of the achievements and I havn't had a dull moment yet.

    Played CS for 10 years. I'm super interested in what it's gonna be. I really hope they do something that's worthy to be the next CS.

    F2P is the only way they would get all those 1.6 players to even think about transferring. Tbh I just don't think this is going to be much fun.

    CS1.6 is still one of the defacto LAN games, at least where I am

    I sure hope this keeps true to 1.6...

    about EP3...

    srsly? so Valve can't work on anything other than Half Life? I'd dump the IP for a couple of more years actually... so it doesn't look "overmilked"

    I'm hoping for more than a graphical update. I'd like to see some more gameplay ideas, maybe more objective based games. Maybe each team could have 2/3 objectives to complete, turn on the generator, make a radio call or something. We'll see. Looking forward to some more info.

    Too many....

    And CS1.6 in my mind equals engine with cheats builtin, starting by depending on frames per second, all the milisecond crouch&shoot tactics etc etc.

    So i am sad that they waste the time on this game, instead of doing the good stuff (HL2E3).

    I hate being one of those people, but..

    EP3? HL3?

    They've sidestepped quite a lot now. DOTA2 is quite weird already.

    I take it this will be some kind of COD clone to get all the idiot kids to play it.
