Hmmm... I see there are only 2 'cs_' maps... mainly bomb-based... here's hoping we see hostage rescue mission pack!

Although, did anyone play the 'cs_rat' maps...? Very much akin to the Duke Nukem shrunken stages, fighting in oversizer kitchens/bathrooms/whatnot! :p

I shall indeed be purchasing - bonus: only working until 1300 tomorrow, due to scheduled maintenance in my building, so... a few afternoon games, anybody? ;)

If only cs_militia were included from the get-go... lots of memories on that map (first I ever played, and subsequent favourite at the LAN cafe some friends and I used to play at weekly...)

I just traded in Mafia 2, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, Fifa 09 and PGR4 and got a 2100MS points ready for tomorrow. So yeah, I'll be there!

I applaud the achievements for it. I'm very positive that the game will sell well for the 360 side of things, as there will be a community for it, though massive on PC than compared to 360.

The achievements do indeed look meaty, but if it encourages more game time like Neon-Soldier perfectly says, then I am game for all that. Hey, I'm willing to help out on those cheevo's, as it seems they are all progressive anyway, so fun all the way through! You getting the game Clockpunk?

@Draytone - Hook me up if you getting the game pal. Any more users here getting the game? Hey! Maybe get a VG game night on the bleeder, though I think PC would be the preferred choice of platform to play it on...

I think it would have warranted a full achievement / trophy list - CSGO will have more longevity than most downloadable titles and I think having a full list may have encouraged longer play.

Sounds like a fairly tricky/tough set of achievements/trophies: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/g.../achievements/

XBLA titles tend to become available around 12:00 midday. Obviously it won't be on PSN until some time on Thursday, as that is when the PSN store updates. As to PC, it is still listed as Beta on my Steam list, and new games tend to appear on that about 6pm. (All times in GMT)
