AudioSurf On Sale This Week

Hey. Go buy AudioSurf. Unless you already own it.

Don't listen to our podcast through AudioSurf. It'll just make you crazy.
Saw over on Shacknews that AudioSurf is on sale via Steam this week for $2.49. That's cheap. That's, like, completely ridiculous. AudioSurf is easily worth four times that much, which is what it normally sells for. That is a steal, people.

If you don't currently own AudioSurf, you should. It's a cool music-themed game that lets you import your own MP3s. The game then generates levels based on your music.

Apparently the sale is due to the latest addition to the Steam service... a shopping cart. Now you can buy multiple games from Steam without having to enter your credit card each time you buy. That means you could also buy a hot game like World of Goo at the same time, if that's your thing. Shopping carts! The future of Internet commerce is here!

What is this exactly? Does it make rhythm games or platformers or what?

Posted by Ruisu

Man that's a sweet deal I bought it for 4.99 the day it was released on Steam.
Thanks for telling me about this game Jeff in your old blog. I love it

Shopping Carts are revolutionary indeed.

Posted by Fade2Gray

Wow! And I thought I had stolen the game when I bought it a few months back for $5. Great game. EASILY worth $2.49.

I paid 5 bucks for it last time i went on sale.  its a fantastic game but 2.50?!  There is no excuse not to own this game

AMAZING game!

Posted by LCad

They should sell it "on a disc".

I love this game. I wanted to play something epic on it like March Into the Sea by Pelican (which is just over 20 minutes) but it told me it was too long... Oh well. Get it!

@chililili: It's kinda like Guitar Hero Racing. The game generates tracks based on info(tempo, volume, etc.) from any mp3 you give it. It's fun.

It's all about playing the fastest song you can find.

Posted by JackiJinx

Man, I hardly play that anymore. Good game though, fo sur.

Posted by Jezzasaurus

It's a color-matching puzzle game similar to Klax with a few power-ups, but the blocks come down in time with the music. Amazing game, they should make it for the iPhone!

Posted by RHCPfan24

oh cool. i will get it.

Posted by gbrading

I already own Audiosurf, but if I didn't, I would be buying it at this point. :P Listening to the Bombcast through it certainly would be interesting.

Posted by HTTenrai

Sweet!

Posted by erinfizz

Spiff. I will go get it now, even.

Posted by elektrixx

I've tried listening to the bombcast with Audiosurf before. I had to trim it because it went too long.

Posted by kboy

I just purchased it. What a steal. I've been waiting for a sale on Audiosurf, but totally wasn't expecting a markdown like this.

Posted by Simsfreak14

GRRR!!! I paid $9.99!

Posted by TomboDemon

@ Chilli
its like Guitar Hero,
but you fly a space ship around the incoming buttons

Shopping carts are going to be the future of retailing.

Posted by insanejedi

GRRRR I payed $5 FOR IT!

Posted by Milkman

I already own Audiosurf and anyone who doesn't have it should buy that. However, I am much more excited about shopping carts on Steam! I absolutely hate having to put my credit card information in every time I want to buy a game on Steam. Hell yeah!

Now, there's only one more service that needs to fix this shopping cart-less problem...I'm looking at you Wii Shop Channel.

Posted by dagas

Been waiting for a $5 sale (guess I missed that one reading a post here saying there was one) but $2.50 is even better. I can afford that even though our currency have crashed lately and the USD have increased 25 % in value last couple of months...

Posted by giventofly462

That's about the same price as a pretzel with cheese at Target.

Posted by zoozilla

Well, I've got no excuse not to get this now.

Posted by Neurogamer

Just picked it up! Thanks for the tip, Jeff! I've been waiting to get for a while. Now is the perfect time!

Posted by LordAndrew

Do it. Do it now. Now now now.
Audiosurf is entirely worth it.

Posted by LordAndrew

Also, shopping carts? Damn. Now I'm going to end up buying even more Steam games.

Posted by AllThatBacon

I would buy it...but Steam's shopping cart won't let me. Augh.

Posted by Media_Master

meh

Posted by LordCrom

Thanks for the heads up Jeff!  Excellent price!  Purchased!

Posted by daniel_beck_90

wow listening to Bomb cast while playing is an amazing experience lol

Posted by jangofett88

Dude! That's loose change.

Posted by Zeniblade

Damn it, I've totally thought about listening to the Bombcast in Audiosurf, but I never had the guts to try.

Posted by F1

$2.49????
Amazing!

Posted by MisterSpiffy

I've been on the fence about this.  I will DEFINITELY pick this up.  It's just such an amazing deal.

Posted by Nettacki

I payed $10 for Audiosurf, and I STILL got my money's worth anyway! Whether $2.50 or $10, it's worth it!

Posted by LordAndrew

I actually have ridden the Bombcast in Audiosurf.

Posted by Daveyo520

LOL I actually bought it because of this. Well it is only 3 bucks I couldn't pass that up.

Posted by Milkman

I think I gotta try doing this Bombcast in Audiosurf thing now.

Posted by Kraznor

Dang, and I thought I got a steal of a deal at ten dollars. Anyone who fails to purchase this is missing out.

Posted by PitifullPete

Everyone who doesnt buy it for 2.49$ gets punched in the face with gears of wars 4 if I ever see him/her.

Posted by PitifullPete

If you bought feeding frenyz  & didnt buy  audiosurf you will get hit twice.

Posted by BinaryDragon

If you don't own Audiosurf by now, you are mad.
