Think E3 is easy?
Watch here on E3 week and see how much exercise I do.
Osama bin Laden's final hiding spot in Abbottabad, Pakistan, has been made into a playable map for Counter-Strike: Source. Honestly, we're a little surprised that it took this long.
Fletch, the map's creator has explained that there are plans to, perhaps, make this into a "bomb or hostage map" at a later stage, but right now it's 'just' a general purpose multiplayer map based on what we know about bin Laden's mansion.
So far, ratings have been positive, and the modding community at GameBanana have been calming each other down, squishing calls of "Too soon!". The map itself looks pretty polished and well-made, and you can grab fy_abbottabad (1.41MB) from the GamePron File Library.

I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
