Counter-Strike is dead, long live Counter-Strike!

Without a press release in sight, Valve has launched Counter-Strike 2 to the world. This free-to-play release is available right now and will replace your current installs of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

    The studio promises to never do a patch like it ever again.

    60FPS Performance Mode Confirmed for Remnant 2

    In a world where 60FPS on current-gen is uncertain, it's nice to get some good news.

    Several games lately have shipped without any sort of a 60FPS performance mode option on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. What used to be the norm near the launch of these newer consoles has now seemingly become so uncertain that it's now newsworthy when a game announces it will ship with a 60FPS performance option.

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
