    Wish I was in the beta..
    Really tempted to make a comeback as a "hardcore PC gamer" again.

    Played a ton of Counter Strike in early 2000.
    From what I've seen of CS:GO so far, its looks pretty neat.

    Now I realise that its just a beta, but what performances are you getting?
    Im not sure if my old Ati 5770 1GB card would hold up too well..

    Well, if you have all the CS games, you have a chance at getting the beta.

    I still play 1.6 and source to this day!
    CS:GO is very neat indeed, the graphics are very nice and the game play feels like 1.6.... Its still dam fun basically!

    You need the requirements of L4D2 and you should have no problem.

    Nice. My rig runs L4D2 45-60fps on max settings :D 
    Thanks for sharing!

    Unfortunatly I only own CS:Source on my current Steam account.
    Lost my old account years ago..

    I played CS since... I dunno, but put it this way at the end of a round the guns stayed on the floor till the server changed levels.

    man I recal the fail at vehicles a jeep map that was clunky as hell (ok it was a test map) and an APC in CS_Assault

    But on topic its a given I will get this no questions asked

    I'm downloading the beta currently. It seems quite awesome from what little I've seen and heard, so hopefully it lives up to that hype. :D

    Yeah, I agree. Was playing it last night, and it was beautiful. I forgot how much I suck at CS, though. xD

    Well, I think it's time you try it out!
    The beta really makes the game shine.

    For some reason I got a free copy of the game.... I know I didn't buy it but the only reason maybe because I was in the beta or it's a glitch in the system.
    Can someone else who has the beta check if you have a copy of the game?
    It says it in the store or if I try to buy it... It says "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: According to our records, you already own one or more of the items included in this package on Steam. If purchasing for yourself, see the Extra Copies support article to determine whether the items you already own can be shared with friends."

    When I go to the store page, it gives a an unlock time, and at the top says "You already own". Pretty sure having the Beat meant getting the game as well, IIRC

    so, spent some time with the beta finally
    Easy Offline Bots, it's my first time playing any CS
    Like what I've seen though, hope enough TFWers get it, so at the very least we can have one full team.

    Preordered this. Not sure how well it'll work with my computer, but it's only 13 bucks, so if it doesn't work, I can wait until I get some upgrades.
    EDIT: Tested the beta, works fine with my computer :D
