The Jackbox Party Pack is Coming to OUYA

So some of you might remember a trivia game with an attitude back in the 90s that went by the name of You Don't Know Jack, well the group behind that game is coming at you with not just a new YDKJ, but is going to be bundling up four other games for you to challenge your friends with. Here's what you can look forward to in the very near future on the OUYA:

The team behind YOU DON’T KNOW JACK presents FIVE guffaw-inducing party games in one pack!

Games include:

  • The comedy trivia sensation YOU DON’T NOW JACK 2015 (1-4 players) with hundreds of all-new questions.
  • The hilarious bluffing game Fibbage XL (2-8 players), with 50% more questions added to the original hit game Fibbage.
  • The bizarre drawing game Drawful (3-8 players), where you draw right there on your phone or tablet.
  • The racy-as-you-want-to-be fill-in-the-blank word game Word Spud (2-8 players).
  • The wacky-fact-filled Lie Swatter (1-100 players).

Now of course this pack has already been release in a couple other forms, so if you do not own an OUYA you can still get in on the action, but I think its safe to say that Altered Confusion will be aiming for the OUYA version to help further build our collection of fun games.

Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock is Coming February 17th

So it would appear that Phoenix Online publishing is at it again releasing another title that will have the gamers buzzing. This time around it is Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock, a sci-fi point and click that will have you surviving a crash landing on a strange planet. Do you have what it takes to survive, or will you be destined to be forgotten upon this strange planet you find yourself on?

HAUNTING FIRST-PERSON SCI-FI ADVENTURE MORNINGSTAR: DESCENT TO DEADROCK COMING FEBRUARY 17TH, 2015

Phoenix Online Publishing Brings Space-Age Mystery Adventure to PC and Mac

St. Louis, MO – February 3rd, 2015 – Phoenix Online Publishing and Red Herring Labs today announced that Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock, a chillingly alien and atmospheric sci-fi first-person point-and-click adventure, will make its debut for PC and Mac on February 17th, 2015. Inviting players to crash-land upon and explore an isolated alien landscape that appears deceptively empty and benign, this adventure by Red Herring Labs brings new life to their hit game Morningstar, offering all-new puzzles, scenes and encounters to discover. Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock will be available for PC and Mac for $9.99 on February 17th via Steam, the Humble Store, the Phoenix Online Store and other major online retailers. Check out the trailer here: http://youtu.be/Hm9NPnkKClo



Crash-landed on a desolate, alien planet, gamers will discover that what should have been a routine work-for-hire job for Powell has become a deadly mission to save the merchant vessel Morningstar and her crew. With one man dead and the captain gravely injured, Powell is on his own to repair the ship and find a way to escape the strange gravity well of the empty planet they've landed on. If the situation weren't dire enough, the only signs of life on the planet are the remains of a much larger and better equipped ship and her crew, all dead, and not by natural means. What—or who—brought down these ships and is killing their crews? Why? And can Powell find a way off-planet before he shares the same fate?

Key Features
  • Experience an immersive sci-fi adventure, packed with gorgeous HD graphics, brand-new puzzles and scenes, and an all-new, streamlined interface
  • Newly remastered cinematics display the haunting landscapes in beautiful high definition
  • Uncover the mystery of Deadrock through new and optimized puzzles and an extended storyline
  • The alien planet of Deadrock comes alive with full voice acting and engrossing sound effects

Sony Online Entertainment Sold, Becomes Daybreak Game Company

Well this is interesting, although the way that Sony has been doing almost anything nowadays it doesn't come as this big of a surprise that a company that actually has their namesake in the title has been sold off. It will henceforth be known as Daybreak Game Company, and will immediately focus on multiplatform releases. According to sources this is just a move by Sony to trim some fat, apparently this company was too heavily invested in game development, and Sony is interested in cutting back in that area... ... ...

Yep that's right folks Sony is starting the wonderful trend of sliding downhill again. Now that of course does not mean that you, PlayStation 4 owners, aren't going to see games come out for the system, it just means that the mothership has decided to tone down on the first party participation. I'm sure as long as people want to obtain a license and give a share of profits for their games on Sony's console, they are just fine with that.

Personally I think that Sony has been shooting themselves in the foot since the PlayStation 3, but that's just me. Although its kind of hard to ignore when Sony keeps making odd decisions with their "gaming" products.

Rumor: AOL Forcing Joystiq to Close

Well I think we can all say that this is yet another case of the overlords not really understanding how vital one of their pieces is, and as a result the rumors are circulating like crazy saying that AOL is closing down many of the sites that they control and Joystiq is definitely on the chopping block. If this is indeed the case it is going to be a sad day when the final day ends. Joystiq is one of the few websites that I actually trusted opinions on. There are too many of tainted sites out there and I found Joystiq full of opinions and none felt truly forced from the writer.

Where will we get our news outside of Altered Confusion now, since Joystiq is going to close? For that, my dear friends, I don't really know the answer there are some other amazing sites out there, but to find one to replace Joystiq will be extremely difficult.

SMITE World Champs Sign with Cloud9

I'm going to be totally honest with you I didn't see thing coming, but something told me that Cognitive Prime was going to leave the Cognitive nest. I just felt that Cognitive as a whole was more interested in Cog Red than Prime, and I have a sneaky suspicion that roster changes were going to come for Prime. So after winning the entire Smite World Championship the entire team of Cog Prime:

  • Andrew “Andinster” Woodward - Jungler
  • John “BaRRaCCuDDa” Salter - Hunter
  • The “JeffHindla” Love (Rosario Villardi)  - Support
  • Brett “MLCSt3alth” Felley - Mid-Laner
  • Ryan “Omega” Johnson - Solo-Laner

Have signed on with Cloud9, this coming on the heels of the news that the previous Cloud9 team had been disbanded. Now with this new team in place you can be sure that Cloud9 will be right back up there as one of the top teams. Now of course it does appear that this team is going to stay stateside, so the Cloud9 European presence is still left in flux.
