Pokemon Go Starts to Fade

Now this isn't to say that Pokemon Go is about to disappear off the face of the earth, but there has been a drop in the user base since its release. Many could point at the shiny new luster has started to fad, some might even point at the tracking issues, and the shutting down of third-party sites that actually made the game more enjoyable.

The thing is that the developers are still planning to continue on with their now currently 30 Million plus users, and hope that further patching will keep those left happy. I do find it slightly humorous that even though they did shed around 12 million users people are freaking out saying that this game is doomed. Personally, there's not enough data to suggest that it is doomed. If you look at any game with online capabilities, there's a spike that the beginning as everyone needs that shiny new thing, and then as time goes on those who actually find their groove in the game will stay and the rest will be distracted by the next very shiny new thing. That's just how the world turns.

Destiny is Currently Listed as Free on XBox One Marketplace

Well I'm not really sure what to make of this, but I have to say that if you have an XBox One that doesn't currently have Destiny, you're going to want to snatch this up pronto. Now that being said it might just be a clever way of getting you pulled in, and bolstering the user numbers for when the next expansion comes out.

Personally I thought Destiny was a bit empty and grindy, but that's because I got it on launch day. I've heard that there have been some amazing and awesome improvements to the game that I wish I had the time to take in, but sadly I will just have to stare longingly at the box, yes I still buy hard copies of games, on my gaming shelf.

Dear Lords and Ladies of the Realm

As many of you might have found out shortly after starting last night's Thursday Night Hangout we went off air and there wasn't a true response from us, except on Facebook. The sad reality of it all was that just as we were finding our groove the cable cut out and thanks to whatever Angered Gods we didn't regain the cable until 8:50 AM this morning. 

So what I propose is that for those who are sadden, maddened, or are still curious what a Thursday Night Hangout is all about, that I, Charlie, give you a LIVE Broadcast tonight starting roughly around 8 PM EST and I will run it until I can't see straight. Sadly I don't think that Zealeus will be in attendance, and I hope you can forgive us for that.

Since I will be hitting the interweb data stream tonight is there any topics that you would like to be covered so that I can better plan our time together. Remember tell your friends, share the love, follow all the social media that we have to offer, and if you are feeling extremely frisky help keep the lights on for Altered Confusion by either doing a 1 time donation through the Donate button on our website, or do a monthly small or large contribution through Patreon.

Now if for some reason you have decided that you don't want to donate money to us or perhaps you are the kind of person who likes to donate to many causes, don't forget that we are participating in Extra-Life and all the money donated to that goes to the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

 

See you tonight,

Charlie

Gawker to Shutdown Next Week

Well it would appear that the Hulk Hogan lawsuit was indeed the end of Gawker.com and with Univision purchasing the overarching company Gawker, I think it is safe to say that we all saw this coming. Now before everyone gets crazy, the website, www.Gawker.com, is the only one going away. The rest of the sites attached to Gawker will remain alive and well, although personally I wouldn't mind if a couple of those were to disappear either.

Gawker has been around for quite some time, but it would appear that when the judge decided on the $140.1 million that the founder knew that bankruptcy was the only out. He, Nick Denton, has stated that the new owners will be moving existing staff from Gawker onto other sites. I'm not sure if that means all or some, but at least it looks like there is somewhat of a safety net in place for most of the employees that had nothing to do with the Hulk Hogan case.
