About
Hello, I'm Knives but a lot of my friends will usually call me Knivy. All I should have to say is that I live in the happiest place on earth (Tijuana!), but that's not all I'm gonna say.

I started playing games at around age 4 and I simply love games....No, really, I'll play pretty much anything: RTS, FPS, RPGs, TPS, Shumps, Puzzle, Rhythm, Sports, etc.

I currently play on PC, Wii, PS2, DS and 360, I tell myself I'll get a PSP and a PS3 soon but I keep spending money on things like MAGfest, Miami, PAX , Baltinarp and Cancun.

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.

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.

Rules of the contest can be found here.

Last week was won near the end by Time Pants, who redeemed his points for some weird creatures on some weird game.

This week's song will be Pointman Elite Only, made by our very own GuitarAtomik and dedicated to CTZ, he's a shark and you know what to do (besides downloading the song from here).


The end is near :O.

THURSDAY UPDATE
