The new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is apparently based on the Portal 2 Source engine, as tweets of some pro gamers reveal.
Well they did say the game looked really good. Happy to hear its the Portal 2 engine.
. Going by what Digital Foundry had to say about Portal 2 on 360, that isn't very good news for the 360 fanbase. Valve needs to get with the program if they want to port games onto consoles. Yes, we all know the limitations of consoles at this point but with games like Halo reach, Crysis 2 and Gears 3 delivering incredible games/graphics with multiplayer and co-op modes to boot, there are no room for excuses.
VALVe isnt doing this game, just a heads up on that one.
look s like ps3 will be on top again since portal 2 played better and looked better on ps3 plus ps3 users got the pc version free
I hope there is Steamworks in this as well. It was a blast playing my PC mates.
Lol you better hope steamworks isnt there, unless you would like to go up against mouse keyboard users, which really will be very unfavorable.
who cares about the ps3 version i prefer the pc better you fanboys just shut up the console versions looked great and similar but the pc was much better
portal 2 was perfectly fine on the 360 looked better than the ps3 but of course pc trumps all graphics dont make a game dudebro, need to learn that if you wanna enjoy games.....even if they are 5 hours long with stupidly easy puzzles a 4 yr old could figure out
ps3 ran at 720p xbox ran at sub hd and lens of truth showed ps3 looked better
Lmfao Portal 2 PS3 pissed all over the 360 version. You might want to check out the Lens of Truth head 2 head and Digital Foundry's face-off. Don't be delusional.
Why would they use the Portal 2 engine and not the updated version used in DOTA 2 with improved lighting and cloth physics?
because they didn't.
And "pro gamers" know this how? You could imagine them sending this email: Dear pro gamer, we are writing to inform you that counterstrike global offensive will be based on the portal 2 source engine just because you are really good at games and ought to know first. Go tweet about it. Yours sincerely, your best buddy, Valve. But either way, I'm actually kinda excited at finally getting the chance to play a counterstrike game because I've never been a PC FPS gamer.
You been hacking my inbox Kee ??? =(
"And "pro gamers" know this how?" I'm guessing because they're testing it.
They got to play the game at valve hq, there's tons of info out on it, do your research.
Haha, So you got that email too? I WAS RIGHT!!! Yay. Iron the cookies out!! :) Edit: lol forgot to reply to staystatic. :D Hate that
I hope it's good.
The whole idea of episodic gaming and steady upgrades to a forever improving engine is decreased development times, so... where the fuck is episode 3?
PS3 fags saying it was cool playing with your PC friends on Portal 2. If CS:GO has SteamPlay on PS3, then I hope you enjoy getting your arse kicked by your more superior PC friends
Srsly. Do you even play games? Stfu.
Everyone knows Keyboard/Mouse is better than Sticks/Autoaim. If CS:GO does implement autoaim, its going to be a competitive shooter. BTW Why ask if I play games? Do you even play games?
I hope it has auto-assist aim. We console players need auto-assist aim.
