Lt_Sky said something in one of my threads that brought up my attention and at the risk of becoming lame, I want to know, Is CS:S just another cheap, hoaky money making ploy like CZ? Is Valve going to come out with a "Counter-Strike: Two" and laugh in the faces of the people who bought CS:S???

    Condition Zero was basically a way for Valve to flex there Potential and make money off of it, well I have never owned the game or played it for that matter, that is what it seems like, anyway.

    HL3 cant be done with the existign Source Engine,it will have to be beefed up which would be a newer Source Engine,like the Unreal Engine,DOOM and other engines

    since i first saw TF2 screenshots back in the day i had a theory.and as time went on and CS:S was supposed to come out as well as HL2,then when i got to play them my teory was a possible truth.

    the Source Engine can be played on older systems unlike most other engines
    the "color" in the screenshots has never been crips and clear like the DOOM 3 engines,even when playing the game

    i havent played CZ so i cant really comment on gfx changes that were seen in that but they did test some stuff out in previous titles then had them all combined together in HL2 and CS:S

    it makes me believe that the current Source engine is just a heavily modified HL1 engine

    ^ Da darling, HL3 will be made with the Source engine, my guess is HL4 will be done with Source 2.

    beefing up an engine they already own is cheaper than "inventing" a new one

    do they really need to beef up the source engine? Only a minority of pc owners can actually play the game.

    most likely they will modify the current Source engine alot more and then rename it Source 2

    thats been my feelings bout the current source engine,they had already the HL1 engine,just tweaked it heavily and named it Source Engine

    In that case i wont need too worry anyway cause i know my gfx card wont support it.

    But i dont see why they would make a BRAND NEW engine just for Counter-Strike 2 when i heard Half-Life 3 will be on the source engine anyway. Dont see why they would go out of the way to make a new engine for something that was never really there game to begin with. They probably just made CS:S because they wanted alot of people to get hl2. Afterall i dont even think hl1 would of been as popular if everyone didnt start liking cs.

    HL2 is the main game,CS:S is the multiplayer game that you get when you buy HL2

    just CS:S is played more than HL2DM

    valve is prolly already workin on Source2 engine

    The only reason i refused too get cz was because of the fact it was pretty much the same game except new models and maps. I got source cause it was on a new engine, so i doubt im gonna get cs2 if its just the source engine with new models and maps.

    agreed omi, CS was never the main game, Half life was, but they decided to make a MOD called CS.. and here we are, CS:S isnt a NEW game, its just a rebuilt

    Well, nobody really "bought" CS:S...it was a bonus that came with HL2. So whether or not a CS2 is still on the horizon, you didn't get cheated.
