Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
« on: March 14, 2014, 03:11:45 PM »
The game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is on sale on steam today for 75% off, making it less than $4.

It's a multiplayer team-based first person shooter.

I'm not sure we will ever play it, but there has been some talk in the #donationcoder chat channel (see link at top of forum) of playing it all together, so I just bought it.

If anyone else wants to join in playing, pick it up!

If you're on steam, want to play it, but for some reason can't buy it, and have made more than 5 posts on the forum, send me a message today and i'll try to buy you a copy.

I play this a lot.  If I had know someone wanted a copy, I would have chipped in.  I guess I need to read more often...

What we need to do is set up a DC-only server.  That way, I can provide Josh with enough nightmares to last him forever...   :D

a dc-only server would also mean we can do what i really want, which is play with 0 bots and no other humans besides a few dc folks.  can someone set that up?

I've set up game servers like this in the past, no problem.  However, it's a matter of hosting, i.e., finding a hosted box to run it on.

Doesn't the game come with dedicated server software? So anyone can set up their own host?

Yes, it does.  However, then you depend on somebody else's home box and their home internet connection.

I am down for this.  That is one of the reasons I stopped playing it daily is the punks and trolls.  Private server with friends?  Yes please.  :Thmbsup:

While it can be played solo for practice, it is joyless and pointless to play solo.
