Looks like Christmas comes early this year, 'Counter-Strike: Global Offensive' has reached 'playable' status according to steamdb. On the steam store you don't see the game listed yet. However, the game can be installed already!! Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) is a first-person shooter video game which is a part of the Counter-Strike series. It was announced to the public on August 12, 2011, and is developed by Valve Corporation and their partner, Hidden Path Entertainment. The game was later released on August 21, 2012 for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, and OS X as a downloadable title.
The in San Francisco based game studio, Turtle Sandbox, is about to release ' Cannon Brawl' to the public. The game play is pretty addictive (to me) and has proven to be great fun playing against friends. 'Cannon Brawl' is an advanced artillery game with RTS elements, which reminds me of open-source games like 'Wormux' and 'Scorched 3D', but with more dynamics.
