Valve Announces Counter-Strike 2

Valve's massively popular FPS gets an engine upgrade and a test starting today.

Valve officially announced Counter-Strike 2 today after weeks of teases, speculation, and rumors. The developer calls this "the largest technical leap forward in Counter-Strike's history" and I'm inclined to believe it.

Counter-Strike 2 will launch to everyone starting in Summer of 2023. Counter-Strike 2 will be a free upgrade to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Some Counter-Strike:...

Review: The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition

Initially, I believed that this looked exactly like the same game that I had played on PC back in late 2019 when it first came out.

"I'm just not seeing what makes this Spacer's Choice Edition worth...

    So long loot boxes, hello overpriced microtransactions.

    When Overwatch 2 launches later this year, the loot boxes we have all come to know and hate will be no more. Replacing the RNG-filled boxes will be seasonal Battle Passes and apparently some optional cosmetic microtransactions that will allow you to, presumably, buy the skins you want without delay.

    This all sounds super great, until you hear that Blizzard recently sent out a survey that seems to suggest they are...

  • Poll: What Platform Do you Game on the Most?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Do you prefer consoles? PC? Maybe mobile is your preferred platform?

    This month's poll is a bit generic if only because I really don't know what to ask right now and this is the easiest thing that came to mind. The question is simple: Which sort of platform do you prefer to play games on?

    Do you like playing on consoles? Do you prefer to play games on PC? What about mobile games? Maybe you prefer to spend most of your time on your phone playing this, that, or the other....
    Consoles (Ex: PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, etc.)
    PC (Including Steam Deck)
    Mobile (Ex: iOS or Android phones/tablets)
    Standalone VR (Ex: Meta Quest 2)
    Other (Ex: No preference or maybe you play only at arcades or those handheld Tiger Electronic games)
