    Quite possibly the last ever weekly Counter-strike night as most of us will be defecting to Counter-strike: Source because it will be lovely.

    Will be looking to kick off around 7pm, would love to see as many of you as possible even if it is only for a little while - lets give Counter-strike a good send off!!

    Would recommend buying it over Steam, but I think the price is pretty expensive.
    $30 I think... maybe.

    You could always download Steam, create an account and have a look.

    what is steam and why would I want to download it?? Remember I am a UT freak. I have never touched nor to I know anything about CS.
    Maybe we should do a tut about CS UT Doom and any other popular games. Especially FPS since there is a whole onslaught of them.

    Steam is the platform for launching HL-engine (currently) based games. Has an integrated IM that works, some of the time, as well as the fastest server browser I have ever seen (still faster than Gamespy Arcade 2) ... infact as you have used it, I could easily compare it to Stardock Central - you login and it will offer to download any games you are licenced for.

    Is this a UK based thing or can anyone from anywhere become a part of it??

    Anyone, its the new method of playing Half-life and Counter-strike. Infact the old method, called WON, shut down last week.

    Thinking about it, you would have to buy Condition Zero on Steam, as it is the only way of buying the original Counter-strike on Steam.

    The only thing you actually need is a cdkey to be honest, it can download the rest. And not everyone is on a dial-up connection anymore!

    I almost got CS:CZ other day but store I was going to get it at was out and I'm not paying $40 everywhere else (even steam ;) ). I have found newegg has the best price though ... think its just under $24, but now I'm debating once again.

    -edit- the newegg link

    Aww, missed it again. I forgot to install it (again) :lol:

    Is CS:Source based on the HL2 engine? Or still at HL1? What's so special about Source?
