MomoCon 2016 Dates Revealed

I'm not going to say that this comes as any surprise, actually I think they've been saying this for a while, but now it's official official. May 26th - 29th you can once again attend MomoCon. Now as many of you might have noticed this convention does get bigger and bigger, so when the tickets go on sale, you're probably going to want to snatch them up.

Speaking of attending, I would highly recommend that you get to work on your amazing costumes for this as well. There's nothing quite like having people stop you because of your amazing work, and of course there's always the group photos.

Now I know that there are those of you out there who are wondering, "Well will Altered Confusion be there?"

As of today Altered Confusion plans to be in attendance both with a booth and perhaps some panels, but there might be a surprise headed your way when it comes to Altered Confusion and MomoCon... I just can't tell you yet ;)

SIEGE Reveals Warren Spector as Opening Night Keynote

It's been a while since I saw Warren Spector give a keynote, and the last time I did was to a room filled to the brim with PAX goers. This time around in a smaller venue I get to hear Warren Spector speak again. The thing is you can to. All you need to do is come to SIEGE in Atlanta, GA. It is happening Oct 9 - 11. This is the Georgia Game Developers Association industry convention.

If you are or have ever been interested in find out more about the game industry, what schools you can attend, what pointers or advice you can get for audio, art, programming, etc... well then this is the place you can get it. Registration is already available at the Official SIEGE website.

If somehow you don't know of Warren Spector, let me list a couple of games that he worked on for you:

  • Wing Commander
  • Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss
  • Ultima VI: The False Prophet
  • Wing Commander: The Secret Missions
  • Bad Blood
  • Wing Commander II: Vengeance of the Kilrathi
  • Wing Commander: The Secret Missions 2 - Crusade
  • Ultima: Worlds of Adventure 2: Martian Dreams
  • ShadowCaster 
  • Ultima Underworld II: Labyrinth of Worlds
  • Wing Commander: Privateer - Righteous Fire
  • Ultima VII Part Two: Serpent Isle
  • Ultima VII Part Two: The Silver Seed
  • Wings of Glory
  • System Shock
  • CyberMage: Darklight Awakening
  • Crusader: No Remorse
  • Thief: The Dark Project
  • Deus Ex
  • Deus Ex: Invisible War
  • Thief: Deadly Shadows
  • Epic Mickey
  • Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
  •  

    So the last thing I have to tell you is that he will be heading up the first Keynote slot of the convention and that is the Friday night slot (October 9th). So if there is only one day you can make it I would recommend at least Friday night.

    The Pain of Not Completely Winning

    First off I would like to point out that ESPN is also reporting on this so for those out there who think that eSports is a fad, or will never be mainstream... ... ... I think the fight it over folks, the SUPER SPORTS GIANT is talking about it as if it was just another boxing story.

    Video had to be switched out because of Copyright issue

    Now for the love of all things holy, you make DAMN sure that that clock says zero, or that your opponent leaves the court/stage/area. I can't tell you how many times I've seen the true heartbreak, much like this gentlemen had. There's nothing like being up on high to CRASH to the lowest of lows because you mistakenly thought it was over.

    I do have a personal story on this subject, and if you'd like to hear it I'll tell you, but I don't think I need to write it out, then again I guess if enough people ask I'll just write it. I will, however, leave you with this wonderful second that changed an entire season.

    AndoCon is but a Short Time Away

    Now I know that if you have been watching most of our videos we have made mention of this convention in Atlanta, GA called AndoCon that Altered Confusion is beyond excited to be attending for the third straight year. Now this is a slightly smaller convention than most, but its one of those conventions where you can really get to know the goers and they aren't just a mob of faceless people who make you feel like you're never going to get anywhere cool. 

    I don't really want to use the word intimate when I describe AndoCon, but at the same time because its not Humongous, you definitely do get to meet a lot of people and have real conversations when the talent that will be at the convention. 

    I know I'm planning on perhaps sampling some of the games that will be on displayed, and of course we will be giving our usual two panels as well.

    So I guess the moral of this story is that if you are in the Atlanta area, or can make it down for a weekend in August (Aug 15-16 to be precise), you should definitely make it over to AndoCon.

    Altered Confusion @ Monster Con 2015

    Holy crap we are less than four days away from the start of another Monster Con, and of course you know that Altered Confusion will once again be making their presence known both with a fan table and as panelist at the convention. I know that some of you out there have been asking when and where the panels are going to be happening, so here you go:

    Friday @ 3 PM in Panel Area 1: The Destruction of the Game Industry
    Saturday @ 3 PM in Panel Area 1: So You Finished Making Your Game and You think You are Done

    Now if you have somehow STILL not gotten your ticket for this weekend's event, run over to the EventBrite Page and correct this issue immediately. We hope to see you there, and if you are coming to the convention  please stop by, stay a while, and listen.
