0827 AC Feature

We won’t blame you if you observe that South Korean developer Webzen has come up with a near carbon copy of Counter-Strike with its free-to-play FPS, Arctic Combat.  And if you look closely at the title’s description on its Facebook page, you’ll see that the game is “based on team/clan strategic gameplay involving tactical perks, weapons, and equipment with realistic warzone effects in the modern warfare battlefields” – see if you can spot another mainstream […]

0824 CS Promo

Just a few days after the release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve has already posted two non-beta updates for the title on consecutive days.  Releasing updates for a new title isn’t anything new or uncommon, but to see two daily updates in a row shows how committed Valve is in making CS: GO a successful throwback to those early days, while integrating some new elements such as the game modes we had talked about last […]

Already having established itself as the premier service provider of PC games on the web, many believe that if anyone could make some noise in the console arena, it would be either Apple or Valve. And although it […]


The year was 1999 and the world had just seen Half-Life being released a few months earlier when the first version of Counter-Strike was released, but at this point it was more of a Half-Life mod. But as the community grew, it was remade into a stand alone game based on the original Half-Life engine. And it quickly turned into one of the pioneer games which built the road for eSports. Since Counter-Strike 1.6 was […]
