Hehehe! Quite a discussion we have here. =)
Who needs CS when you have the allmighty DoD?!?!
Have any of you seen my Counter-Strike wallpapers? Like the one that was on the official CS website for Christmas?
I saw it =)
What's the difference between the CS you can buy in the store and the version you can download for free off the net?
free, and not
and MAPS, there is a couple maps that are not in retail.. and guns are not the same names in retail.
So I assume that you recommend the free version?
Please let me know.
Otherwise, I will stop by Best Buy and pick up the retail version, which is on sale for $19.99.
it is good =)
if you have cable though.. pick up half-life it is fun as well.
I have the retail version. I downloaded the extra maps and AA gave me the gun names, so it's the same. I don't have half life so I needed it.
Are you saying that CS is only a good online playing experience if you have a cable modem?
Or are your referring to the download time for getting the free version off the net?
Cable modem makes it more enjoyable...
not a must .. but a good plan =)
Make sure you get the Game of the Year Edition of Half-Life, and not the new Platinum edition, because the later comes bundled with the stupid retail version of CS.
Here's the [link=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00001KUII/o/qid=991240577/sr=8-1/ref=aps_sr_vg_1_1/107-3866122-3498164]URL[/link] to the box that you need to look for.
we all can feel PB's love for the retail cs.
I do have it, but I only bought it to support Minh.
does he actualy get money from it?
//must buy if he does..
Yes he does get a piece of it, as Jess Cliffe told me on ICQ:
[blockquote]just buy HL : CS when it comes out. don't send us money.[/blockquote]
//needs $30 lol....
Can someone (maybe AA?) give me a black & white answer to whether I should buy the retail version or download the free version?
I'm having trouble reading between the lines today.
Also, I have HL-Game of the Year edition already.
If you already have Half-Life, download the free version. Lamers only use the retail version.
If you already have half life just go download it. it's free. duh.
I guess that makes me a Lamer then, huh? Only reason I bought the retail is because after attemting to d/l it 3 times, I got a corrupted file message every time. Not to mention that it takes a looong time to d/l on 56k.
But as I said before, who needs CS when you have DoD?!?!?!
dod is fun.
I prefer Multi CTF for UT myself, some of those maps are just plain crazy. And I can't wait until the SAS mod comes out
I LOVE H-L & C-S!
I'm a novice though
How do you start a server & what do you need?
you need the game.. good connection ... =)
