Steam is one of the reasons PC gaming will never die.You have a hundred bucks and a great sale you could fill a hard drive.

Apparently thats not the only thing they got going. Make a wishlist of your favorite games and you have a chance to get them for free.

PC gaming at the moment is the most economic way to game due to such low game prices.

Agreed, there are some great deals and besides the major releases, a ton of interesting indy games you'd never find on consoles.

Impulse is doing a Thanksgiving sale as well
not as good as Steams but it's something
The wonderful job that Valve has done is that with Steam it has made it essential for the other DD services to have good sales to compete

comp_ali  +   1714d ago

What's so great about CS? I'm not trying to start an argument here, I'd just like to know what's special about it and what it has (besides mods) that other games don't. I played a demo of it a long time ago and didn't particularly enjoy it.
solar  +   1714d ago
it is a very tactical shooter. very unforgiving and has a huge learning curve.

it is the essential competitive gaming FPS, and it's 10 years old. no other game has touched it.
TheBand1t  +   1714d ago
The gameplay and the commnuity, mostly. That and all the fun mods like zombie mod, zombie horde, jailbreak and surfing.
vickers500  +   1714d ago
Are there servers dedicated to people completely new to it?

Also, the community aspect doesn't really do much for me since I don't know anybody who plays pc games other than WoW, and I imagine playing a tactical fps without friends sucks and would be ultimately pointless.

If the CS community is anything like the Socom community, then f*ck CS. I don't want to be playing with a bunch of elitist a**holes who take the game way too seriously and get pissed off at the most trivial of issues.

Also, you can give me as much sh*t for this next question/complaint as you want, but it's just the way I am since modern fpss have spoiled me, but does the game have respawning, and if so, how long will I have to wait to respawn? Some people don't mind watching their team mates play for like 5 minutes after they get killed, but I can't stand waiting that long, seeing as how I don't really give a sh*t about whether my team mates win or lose if I'm not alive to help them. I can stand like 10-15 second spawn times, but no respawning at all or only respawning after the round is over isn't my cup of tea.

Not to mention since I'm going to be new to the game, I'm going to suck, and I'd rather not spend the majority of my time watching the game after I get my @ss killed within the first 20 seconds.

I don't mind tactical shooters, but I don't want to have to be sitting my @ss out on the sidelines for the majority of the time because I'm not very good.

@vickers500

Yes there's servers for newbies to the game, and no the majority of the community isn't elitist stuck up people. Hell 1/2 the time people make fun of their own shortcomings.

As far as respawn, it depends if the server has a mod or not, but it varies depending upon if a team gets eliminated, or the objective is completed. Along with that look around for some servers that don't have long round times.

Well, I went ahead and bought it anyways. This will have been my first pc game purchase ever. Hopefully it doesn't suck and isn't just one of those things that I play for like 30 minutes and then lose interest in.
Mista T  +   1714d ago
the community is the best in any online fps.
solar  +   1714d ago
uh oh, i think vickers500 is gonna rage fast in CS hehe. no disrespect to him of course.
GrilledCheeseBook  +   1714d ago

Just bought Counter Strike: Source for $5.00. I've only been on STEAM since June, and I've already got 41 big named titles due to the sales on STEAM.

Steam is the best gaming service!
lucifon  +   1714d ago
Nothing today that interests me. Xmas sale is the best sale Steam usually do, expect a good one this year. And the odds of you getting 5 free games out of the millions that use Steam is so incredibly low.
