Here’s more Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, this time looking at Lake, a new map made specifically for Demolition. There’s lots of open space and flanking opportunities here, and the bomb point’s in the building, meaning windows and snipe-spots. Tricky. Watch as Sam and I fail to exploit any of it and get the shit shot out of us.
This is part of our CS: GO Super-Grind, the intention of which is to talk through all modes and maps in the just-released Valve shooter. Get the first episode here.

Good morning, UK campers. Counter-strike: Global Offensive went live overnight on Steam and hits console networks today. Fire up your platform of choice – be that PC, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 – and allow Valve’s latest assault on the eSports scene to enter your life. If you played the beta, you should get caught up on what’s been patched for the CS:GO’s final release, and don’t forget that if you somehow run through the launch content on day one, there’s the first mod to check out – it’s about zombies, of course. PlayStation 3 friends, remember you have a free trial to check out.
