10 Things You Might Not Know About Knivy :O

So I woke up today after and found the Cblogs filled with blogs of like this, I hopped on IRC and I was told I should make one, so I did! It just took a bit to do it because I kept getting sidetracked with the Puppybowl cuteness and reading and commenting on the other blogs.


1.- I used to study videogames design in Guadalajara

Before that I studied at the Monterrey Tec, but didn't like how teachers and administrators looked down on the animation part of the career (which would've been my last 3 out of 8 semesters) and then I found out about another the other place so I changed school.


2.- I ended up in Communications

After one semester in Guadalajara my dad got diagnosed with cancer, so I had to go back to Tijuana and help out getting money and not spending it. I took a year off school and once my dad got better after having surgery I decided to go back. I got a bit tired from tech careers, and even when some friends told me I could do good in psychology, I still liked writing and things like that, so I ended up in Communications (I'm on my 4th semester now) because it has a bit of everything I like.


3.-Cat people yay!!

As far as I can remember I've had cats as pet. My love for cats started after watching a lot of Tom & Jerry, I hated how Tom was made to look like the bad guy even when Jerry was the one that started it, so I got a kitty and treated him well like he deserved (and of course, I named him Tom :P). Now I think that the media has something against cats, and that's why pretty much every cat (except maybe for Felix) is shown as the bad guy (even Top Cat, with his behind the alley business). This in no way means I hate dogs or mice.

4.- I get along way better with girls than with guys.

From what I've been reading from the other "10 things" blogs this is kinda common among us here :).

It has its ups and downs for me, on the good side I get gifts ^_^ (candy, cake, coffee, tortas, sandwiches, cupcakes) often and I meet lots of girls, on the bad side it's really easy for me to get friend zoned (It's not rare for me to get a "Guys are jerks, except for you") and I have a tendency to have problems with the boyfriends of my friends.


5.-I didn't have an avatar for the longest time

I knew I should get one, but I really really liked the robot in the default one. I think I spent like a year before getting the one I have.


6.- I was with Dex in the male nerdcore contest back in the days

Click at your own risk :O


7.- I need to make gift wrapping special

It all started with the first xmas gift I bought for my best friend, I didn't want to wrap it normal like, so I made it look like it was wrapped last minute with torn up paper and the "to: from:" with crossed out names and below those ours. After that I got this obsession of making the wrapping of my 3 best friend's something awesome, weird or annoying, I think about that as much, or even more, than the gift.


Some of the wrapping I've taken picture of, I hate not having a picture of the one I wrapped with wax.

8.- I love sweets
Of everykind, I wouldn't be surprised if I already had diabetes :P, I eat cake, cookies, m&m's, kit kats, butterfingers, reese's (love pieces), duvalins, mazapan, tutsipops, ice cream all the time. I even carry sprinkles with me in my backpack :P.

9.- I love Coffee
Supposedly my grandpa used to give sips when I was a baby, still, I can't get through the day without coffee, is not even that I get sleepy without it, I'm just used to having a nice latte after eating. I like coffee so much that my best friend's xmas present was a candy dispenser filled with chocolate covered espresso beans.


10.- I'm indecisive/impulsive
I overthink things a lot, so I'll end up thinking about doing something for the longest time ever, or just doing it without thinking.   read

Small Thanks To Everyone

I’m really tired, still dealing with postpax sadness and with a ton of school stuff to catch up with, yet I feel that saying thanks to all of you, even in a short manner, is something way more important.


I’ve read some of the blogs that are already up about pax trying to steal (yeah I’m mexican) some words, but all I can say is thanks Niero, thanks for making this amazing club and thanks for letting us join in. This will sound fucking cheesy, but if there’s a heaven, I can’t imagine the surreal dream like feeling of meeting again with the people you cared about in life being that much different from meeting all of you guys in person.


Thanks again everyone, I think I managed the incredible task of hanging out at least a couple of mins with everyone of you <3<3<3. Now I gotta go read some stupid ethics book which I'm pretty sure will lack Necros on Fire.   read

Amazing SMW Image Merges Levels





A friend sent me this amazing image from the place that should not be named.

As you can see it contains a ton of characters from SMW and a merger of the different types of levels. Even if the dolphins aren't around I'm pretty sure Chad will like this picture.

PS: I did try looking for the original source of the image, but I couldn't find anything besides gravity codes for the SMW roms :/   read

Audiosurf Gets Massive Update

I just opened Steam a few mins ago and received the pleasant surprise that Audiosurf got a massive update .

The FM update introduces a host of new features and content including last.fm audioscrobbling, the ability to run Audiosurf as a music visualizer, scoreboard comments, and much more. Many of these new features were produced as a direct result of community requests and feedback.

In addition, this update introduces a Mod interface for developers. The interface was made available during its beta phase and several Audiosurf extensions are already available. These include Shuffle Play, an MSN Messenger status writer, and a context menu that can launch Audiosurf directly into a song by right-clicking it in Windows Explorer. A full list of the Audiosurf extentions is available here: http://www.audio-surf.com/mods


The full list of new stuff and fixes is here, the ones that get the most attention from me are:


Comments tab on every song's scoreboard

Will this be used to trash talk? Criticize songs? Give recommendations? Spam? Only time will tell.



Customized player news on the song loading screen (when friends last played, songs you're champion of, etc...)

I like this, it gives me a reason to take the time to add friends.



Added Vegas ability: generate a random powerup every 60 seconds

I guess there was a disadvantage for the Vegas character, not sure if this will balance things though.



Eraser Elite now has 8 rows of tiles (like Pusher Elite)

I have to say, at first I thought this was good, then i realized I don't remember how many rows it originally had =/.




Maximum song length extended to 60 minutes
Yay!!! I can listen to some podcasts while playing now :P, also really really long songs. Should I do a 1 time contest thing with a 60min song?




Last.FM audioscrobbling

I just like this because I started using last.fm like a week or two ago.





I'll try to get on with checking the mods later in the week, I also have yet to try using custom textures.   read

[AS Contest] Week 10 Song




Rules of the contest can be found here.

Last week was won by TimePants, I still don't know if he's gonna redeem his point or not, but I'll update this once I know.

This week's song was one of my favorites from an AS giveaway I had when the game came out, so what better way to end this contest than with one of the songs that gave me the idea. This week's song is an Earthbound remix, Snowbound by Blind, and it can be downloaded from here, this week will be Ninja Mono Only

Thursday Update


Also, since Timepants kept his point in play, if you beat his top score, and stay on first place till tomorrow. on last week's song then you steal his point.   read
