Counter-Strike co-creator unveils trailer for latest game photo



Minh "Gooseman" Le is a guy you may not have heard of, but you probably know about a little game he co-created with Jess Cliffe called Counter-Strike. Well, Minh has unveiled his latest game and wouldn't you know it, it's a tactical-based FPS entitled Tactical Intervention

Developed by FIX Korea and published by free-to-play group OGPlanet, Tactical Intervention sure does look a lot like Counter-Strike, but I suppose a modern tactical shooter set in the real world doesn't give you options for a lot of flair when it comes to art direction. However, there is the interesting idea of having vehicle missions which might freshen the genre up a bit.

Tactical Intervention is going to be free to play and there is a closed beta available for some North American gamers to try out. I hope this works out well for Minh Le but I gotta feel that he's in the unenviable position of trying to improve on a genre he pretty much nailed spot on the first time 'round. Still, we'll see what happens when Tactical Intervention launches later this spring.

Warframe's next update lets you fly around in space as a ninja

I had played a bit of Warframe on PC to see what it was about, thought it was merely okay, and moved on not much later, as you do. Digital Extremes' free-to-play cooperative action game has since come to PlayStation 4 -- and...more

Review in Progress: Firefall

Firefall is a game that has seemed to get a lot of press over the past few years, often for the wrong reasons. Whether it's word of troubled staff, protests, or delays, most Firefall news isn't good news. But alas, as we...more
