Audiosurf -- Now with names!
« on: February 15, 2008, 01:20:27 pm »
Well as most of you steam addicts know, Steam released a new game today called Audiosurf. You get to ride your music collecting coloured squares to gain points.  It's pretty addictive, despite the trouble I'm having with the controls, maybe it's because I'm using the keyboard, I should try with mouse.


Oh man, you guys are going to see what I've been playing and LAUGH. An important note about the Audiosurf friend system. It is one way. So if I add someone, they are my friend, but I am not their friend until they add me. There is no prompt that I saw saying someone added you as a friend so we are basically going to tell each other who added who.

Now, the list. It's forum username and then Audiosurf username. If you want me to add your name just send me a PM. I'll add people as I add them to the list

Wow, fixed it now it's 110% better. If you have any other sort of controls plugged in, unplug them. My guitar hero 3 controller kept causing me to snap to the left

Still, the mouse is way better for me on harder (200+ traffic) songs.

the mouse is better, but with my GH3 controller plugged in it wouldn't even recognize the mouse (I thought I was doing something wrong). When I played the game would constantly pull me into the left lane so I had to almost always have a finger on the right arrow, releasing when I didn't wnat to hit a block, needless to say it was very hard to play.

I got the demo (full thing with 4 song plays limit) and it's pretty great. They should use this technology in GH4!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Does it work with any music files you have? Or is it just the music they provide?
nvm
