SkyChase (CS 1.6)

Feature Friday is another day of the week in which we pump out a post (or posts) with a common theme. Friday is a little different than Tuesday though, in that we may post upwards of 3-5 “Feature Friday” posts simply because of all the different games and all the sweet videos people dish out. Today’s first FF post is a kickass CS 1.6 frag video from PLDX. It’s a little short and the frags aren’t really anything special, but the visuals and audio are totally awesome. I don’t want to spoil anything, so just check it out yourself.
