Counter-Strike 2 Reaches All Time Low for Valve

A surprising outcome for Valve’s famous remake of CS:GO, it is apparently now one of the most disliked games on Steam with over 1 million negative reviews. Players have been showing discontent over things like glitches, crashes, and a general feeling of the game being released under-developed. This becomes a greater issue because Counter-Strike 2 has completely replaced CS:GO, and older devices may not be able to run the game due to lack of DirectX 9 and 32-bit support. Suffice it to say, fans of the original game are not happy that they can no longer play the original and are forced to play the underdeveloped sequel. Valve has been responding to the backlash with updates to solve some of the more major technical issues, but will it be enough to repair the bad image they have created with the fan base? There is also some drama over Valve incorporating reviews from the original CS:GO to mask the many bad reviews on the second, something that has been criticized in the past over EA and Activision games.

 

Valheim: Trial of Tyr Winners Announced

With the crazy challenge of being the player who took the least amount of time to beat every single boss in Valheim on Hard Mode without dying. For anyone who has played a little bit of Valheim, you would know just how easy it is to die in certain areas like the swamp or mistlands. The three winners from top to bottom are; Time Traveler, ThreadMenace, and Mr ADEL. All playthroughs can be seen on YouTube and you can read the interview here. Time Traveler was able to beat the game in an astonishing seven hours.

Breathing some life back into Infinite, season 5 will be adding Extraction mode, enhanced Forge tools, and many new cosmetics. More details will be available through the Halo World Championships taking place October 13-15. After a severe drop in player base from the beginnings of Halo Infinite, 343 may finally be taking serious actions to get back into the good graces of fans. Do you think Halo can return to its glory days or has 343 dropped the ball too many times?
