    I've noticed several members are playing Audiosurf (me including), so it might be nice to have one or several TF2Maps-song(s) to compete eachother.

    I've run a search on my mp3 dir on "build", "map" and "create":
    Sarah McLachlan - Building a mystery
    Fatboy Slim - Build it up - tear it down
    Muse - Map of the Problematiqué
    Queen - Is this the world we created

    Not the best results for Audiosurf...

    Anyone better suggestions?

    EDIT: Although Fatboy Slim's song isn't his best one, it does produce a nice (mostly) downhill ride...

    they do a different mode, and its not about getting ALL the blocks, its about getting the RIGHT blocks

    I like mono best, you get 25% bonus for a clean finish as well as a 30% bonus for not hitting a single grey.
    :D

    A colleague suggested a - to me unknown - song of the Counting Crows, Perfect Blue Building.
    Good title, too bad it is a slow, slow... ballad... slow...

    LOL, surfing Rick Astley :)
    And it is not a bad ride either. But surfing on elite (ninja mono is my fav) is almost every song okay.

    Try O.T. Quartet's Hold that sucker down. Old house classic with a downhill ride.

    For TF2Mappers songs: Peter Gabriel - Sledge Hammer

    So, do you think Audiosurf is worth the $10? I was not really sure so I have held out. Also, I heard it came with the Orangebox sound track, can you listen to that seperate from the game?

    The Orangebox Soundtrack is just a folder in the Audiosurf dir. All mp3's so, copy and play!

    The game, for me it was worth the $10. Its a nice game to play for 10-15 minutes, to fill some time-gaps in the day planning or just venting off some steam.

    I am a bit disappointed though in the rate they fix bugs...
    In todays update 6 things updated, but looking closely reveals they just fixed only 2(!!) bugs. And those are not my reported bug about not being able to play mp3's from a different PC on the LAN (although there is the workaround by mapping that share to a network drive).

    I think I found THE song: MC Hammer - Can't touch this

    Stop! Hammer Time!

    Only thing is, I don't have it yet as mp3, so I don't know if it is a nice surf

    I played some godsmack songs, and if you like godsmack, they were pretty fun.

    I play lots of remixes from OCRemix.org, and some of those are pretty intense. I had one electronica mix from Sonic 2 called "Chemical Juice" that had 374 traffic congestion. Some of the rock mixes from various games are really good too.

    Feel free to add "apex_" as a friend. I'd be happy to give remix recommendations to you :)

    A couple songs I think are the most fitting mapper theme songs:

    - Harder Better Faster Stronger by Daft Punk... we're always working harder to make our maps better and faster and... something, stronger creativity? :D
    - The Shaping of the World from the World of Warcraft soundtrack. The title is obvious, and it sounds very epic like it could be set to a video of planetary terraforming :p
