Smile Why does Valve advertise CS: Source in CS: GO?

In the de_dust levels in CS: Source, Valve had written some funny texts on the walls.

However, in CS: GO, Valve has decided to reuse the same texts, which makes it really awkward if you're playing Global Offensive and can read the text:

I'm guessing its an Easter egg from CS:Source but some textures got reused. Well spotted

Your probably right. I'm just surprised that VALVe let Hidden Path use so much of CS:Source in a CS game using Source. They could have just ended up with another CS:Source!

Why wouldn't Valve advertise would be a better question. I doubt any of it is accidental.

If the implication is that CS:GO is another CS:S

Then i ask, have you played CS:GO? Because its nothing like CS:Source ,there is very little similarity in terms of gameplay.

O_o

Yeah, it's ten times worse than Source and that says a lot when Source itself isn't that good of a game compared to the real deal.

I'm not a massive fan either. I just struggled to see the similarity between GO and Source.

Yes, I mentioned that one earlier in this thread.
There is also another graffiti which says فرگتستیک which says "Fragtastic".

It took me a while to realize this wasn't an actual Persian word but rather an English word written with Persian letters. :P
