Decided part of why I enjoyed this game so much, was playing it with friends. Need them to come back soon. CounterStrikeSource

Practicing offline on all the maps to get back into the swing of things. Managed to achieve a positive kill-death ratio online. CounterStrikeSource

Looks like wireless is good except when someone's on the PC at the same time. Getting better - been ages since I've played regularly. CounterStrikeSource

I'll have to try a direct net connection to avoid extreme lag and game screwing up - not helped by mum and her FB obsession. CounterStrikeSource
