This. Is. Incredible. The latest release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has added a battle royale mode called Danger Zone (faint whisperings of Kenny Loggins....). If another game company, like Activision with Call of Duty did this, it would be seen as a copycat, a mere clone of the greatness of PUBG and FortNite. But when it's Valve adding more awesomeness to an already awesome game (and making CSGO free to play??) It's more than a copycat, it's a new competitor for the title of Best Battle Royale mode.
The weapons in the Danger Zone mode are the same classic CS:GO weapons, so if you've got good aim in regular play, you'll have good aim here. That's one thing that has always put me off PUBG and Fortnite, the mechanics and aim and spray patterns are different, so the style of play is very different.
I never thought I would see the day, but it's true, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now free-to-play
Valve is injecting more life into CS:GO with free-to-play
As if playing de_dust2 isn't enough for players haha
It's amazing to see this game go free-to-play
Now no one has any excuse but to try it out CS:GO
Kind of a serious issue to talk about here, video game addiction. it's all fun and games when you binge on a video game for a night or two. But if it becomes a regular thing, as apparently it has for some Fortnite addicts (one player mentioned clocks in 12 hours a day!), then it's time to get some help.
From the article: "For now, Fortnite is the game of choice. On a recent afternoon, the game was the most-viewed on Amazon.com Inc.’s Twitch streaming service, with 250,000 people watching others play."
This is why TRS80 Gaming is into casual games and keeping casual gaming hours. There's a world and life outside of video games, and addiction is no joke.
Streaming on Twitch!
