    I'll be more interested when the details come out. As long as they don't change too much, it should do fine.

    Most Valve games use the Source Engine which is meant to run on most machines easily. Your MacBook Air will probably be fine running the game on low/medium settings since it has the 320m GPU, but having less than 4GB of RAM may slow it down. The less powerful Core 2 Duo processor does not help either.

    There are no images or videos of the game yet so I cannot exactly say how well it will run.

    Interested to see where they take this. The Counterstrike beta was really a huge step forward. I just always thought they'd pull a TF2 and keep updating CS Source until there was enough reason to make a sequel.

    I won't get it on day 1 but I'll wait for a sale.
