Counter-Strike Global Offensive preview thumb

CS:GO is go! Yes, the Counter Strike: Global Offensive beta has been launched. I'm sure the new features will be discussed elsewhere, but we can tackle the more pressing issue of how to refer to it. Counter Strike: Source is usually just referred to as Cee Ess Ess, so should we name it Cee Ess Gee Oh? Or perhaps we should follow the more modern styling of Codblops (rhymes with god drops) and call it Cee Ess Go? Or even CisGo? I vote for the latter.
