    I can prove all my purchases if need be. I've got my digital receipts for most of my purchases and can take photos of my retail keys. That shouldn't be an issue. I've just gotta wait on a response.

    Yeah, they emailed you receipts for your purchases, that should suffice as proof.

    Software Studio President Flown to Australia By Gaming Community

    October 1, 2009 - Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Half-Life and Counter-Strike) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced its studio co-founder and president, Gabe Newell, will be visiting Australia next week to meet local game designer Joe W-A, who raised over $3000 for Newell's visit through the gaming community.

    The fundraising began after Joe heard that Newell had recently flown the leaders of a gaming community group boycotting Valve's upcoming Left 4 Dead 2 to Valve's Seattle, WA headquarters. Joe emailed to ask if Newell would fly him to Seattle so Joe could show him his "mod" (a PC gaming term for modifying an existing game into something new).

    Newell playfully replied that he wouldn't fly Joe to Seattle because he was "boycotting" Joe's mod. The Australian-based game designer appealed to the game community for $3,000-the funds necessary to fly Newell halfway around the world-and raised the money in less than 48 hours.

    "The power of the gaming community and their ability to rally around a cause - be it serious or fun in nature - is amazing," said Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve. "In 2003, the community helped the FBI and European law enforcement officials find the people who stole the Half-Life 2 source code. This year, the community is putting me on a plane to the other side of the world to meet Joe W-A and see his MOD. It's going to be a fun trip."

    Newell and Joe will meet in Australia next week. Reports of the trip will be posted on L4D.com's blog section by Valve employee Erik Johnson, who will be traveling with Newell down under.

    Made Steam news. Nice.

    I haven't played Audiosurf in a long time, but an update that seems pretty big has just been released for it.
    A new Audiosurf website has been launched and it's kinda neat.

    Ooh, I see that they did some rebalancing so that the mono modes yield more points. It's the only mode I'm really into with Audiosurf, and it was depressing watching all my scores drop when people realized Eraser mode got more points.

    edit: Eraser still seems to allow people to get more points, but at least I don't feel like I'm so far behind. Maybe.

    The whole new website and in-game browser stuff is great!

    Updates to Audiosurf have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

    Community Stats Website:

    * Community Stats website launched (www.audio-surf.com)
    * Community Stats website integrated into the game with an embedded browser
    * See how many times a friend has tried to beat your score (and failed)
    * See your own dethroned alerts crossed off after you earn revenge
    * See what thrones friends and rivals are proud of
    * Try for a Skillrating that earns a Top Ride of the Day
    * Earn all achievements multiple times (how many Ninjutsus can you get?)

    Extensive Ride Statistics:

    * Every ride on the stats site shows: number of overfills, number of greys hit, percent of total score from white blocks, best match points, longest chain, number of erases, paints used, and max consecutive blocks hit.

    Character Balance:

    * Eraser Pro: can now undo erases with right click (grid graphic shows where undone blocks will land), 8 puzzle rows, bonus for matches that clear the grid.
    * Mono Pro: unlimited jumping, more points per block.
    * Vegas: can shuffle with left click, generates powerups faster, multiplier powerup goes up to x7 now.
    * Pusher Pro: 8 puzzle rows, bonus for matches that clear the grid.
    * Double Vision Pro: 7 puzzle rows, shared match bonus increased to 175%.
    * Storm now applies 8 blocks to Double Vision characters
    * Ninja Mono: more points per block.
    * Eraser Elite: can now undo erases with right click (grid graphic shows where undone blocks will land), bonus for matches that clear the grid, slightly increased chain timer.
    * Double Vision Elite: shared match bonus increased to 240%
    * Double Vision Pro: shared match bonus increased to 150%

    Fixes and tweaks:

    * Autopilot now transitions smoothly with mouse control when toggled on and off.
    * Fixed autopilot ship lagging behind camera
    * Fixed camera turning too sharply with Minimal graphics
    * Dethroned emails point to the new site and offer a link to launch the game and get revenge
    * Fixed F10 exploit

    I've played around with it a bit. In Ninja Mono it says you get more points per block, but this isn't really correct. You get more points per combo. I imagine it will be the same for others. It's not a really big bonus, but the songs I played were slow songs (with very little big matches) perhaps for fast songs with lots of giant matches it will make more of a difference. I also get the idea that the visual effect for passing by gray blocks was changed. It's now kind of like a spinning star instead of a dull lens flare. It's more distracting, but it also looks better.

    That's basically what they said, if the Oddworld re-releases sold well enough they might consider doing a port of SW. I doubt there was enough interest really.

    I didn't like Audiosurf when I first played it. Then I discovered the mono modes which are more relaxing and simple.

    But yeah, if you don't have a good collection of music, or just aren't into music in general, you probably won't enjoy it,

    Since I seem to be the resident Audiosurf-Addict, I'm gonna have to hop in there and see if they changed things for the better.
    Like most of you, I find the only fun mode is the Mono Mode, so I'm kinda hoping that the changes are worth it.
    Be back with some impressions.

    I don't ever sit down to listen to music as an activity, it's only for background noise when I'm driving in my car or taking a shower. Sure I have certain (bad) tastes in music, it's just not a very big aspect of my life.

    Well, so far the increase in points for Mono certainly helped. I had a high score of 60,000 for Michelle Branch - Breathe before the update, and running through it again netted me another 40k making me the highest Mono score for Pro. But that was right underneath 5 high scores for Eraser Mode.

    What I'm really jazzed about is the Webpage thing. It's a much better method of dealing with friends and what they've played, what they beat you on, etc. etc.
    The only problem I seem to be having is that it still doesn't auto-pull from my Steam list. It seems that it makes everyone on your Steam List who has the game a "Follower" and then, much like Facebook or MySpace, you've got to promote them to "Friend" manually.
    Except it only seems to have a maximum Friend limit of 24. Which is weird and makes no sense.
    Anyone else dicked around with it and gotten more?

    css scifi is smod, but for some reason, the character in the new version don't follow me and just run forward, Alyx goes down first, Barney next, and the vortigant dies in the rear. It is hecka funny to see them try to kill a strider with bullets.

    Hi.

    I figured as much. How did you pull that list initially Suds, screen scraping or do you hook into something?

    I was thinking of building a steam historical prices database. I've already got part of the screen scraper done I just need to get the database hosted somewhere.

    Probably is the data would be very boring until you had about a years worth of prices in there.

    I'd have to look at my code again, but essentially I was getting all the IDs from one of the valve employee's game list, then going to each of those pages and grabbing the current price of that game.
