GooglePlay Gets a New Endless Dungeon Crawler

Now when I say the words Looty Dungeon, you might need a bit more information to really get your interest, so here we go. Looty Dungeon was developed by Yodo1, the same company behind Rooms of Doom. Players will have to navigate levels with 1 of 40 different heroes and make it to the exit before the floor completely falls away. This is a game of risk and rewards with what seems like A LOT of risk.

This game is currently slated to come out in the GooglePlay store on September 27th, and will be free-to-play with optional in-game transactions. You will battle through area after area until you meet your end, but have no fear what you accomplish during that run will be applied to your overall gaming experience and help you unlock other pieces in the game. There's also different fighting techniques for the characters. This will allow you to pick your most deadly approach to defeating the gauntlet of enemies, traps, and sometimes other heroes.

Valve Removes Hostile Game Developer from Steam

I think at this point that if you are a gamer, you've probably heard about the craziness that is currently going down between the company Digital Homicide and basically anyone who has had a bad thing to say about their games. They are in the process of trying to request a subpoena that would force Valve to reveal the real identities of 100 Steam users so that they can then be sued for personal injury to the company and its employees. This lawsuit is looking for damages totaling $18 Milllion.

This company has already gone after a YouTuber by the name of Jim Sterling. The company feels that because of the way Sterling slammed all of their games, and then his supporters added on to the abuse through the mail that they should be awarded $10.7 Million. 

Now with all of this going down Valve has made the executive decision to remove any trace of Digital Homicide from Steam. They also vow that they will no longer work with this company now or in the future.

Ghost in the Shell Teaser Trailer

I know that there are many of you out there that think that this is just another whitewashing of Hollywood, and that Scarlett Johansson has no right to play the major, but I have to say that if there was an actress I would like to see in that role, it would be her. 

Personally, I think that one misconception that is going around is that since it's anime all the actors and actresses have to be of a certain descent. The fact of the matter is that most Anime lovers, myself included, know that for the most part you can't really tell what nationality a character is, hell most of the time the universe, city, world, etc. that the characters are based in is fictional so really there isn't a US, Japan, Africa, or even Russia.

So I say before we pass complete judgements on what this movie may or may not have can we at least see the damn thing first? I know this is a radical idea, but lets have ourselves make up our own minds.

Hi-Rez Steps in to Allow Pradigm Team Players a Chance at SWC

I think it is abundantly clear that we at Altered Confusion are huge fans/supporters of Hi-Rez Studios' MOBA SMITE. You might also have guessed that we are always looking forward to seeing the Smite World Championship, and seeing all the teams from around the world compete to see who will reign supreme.

Well there is a team called Paradigm, and it would appear that the organization by that name will have to forfeit their spot at SWC because the players that qualified were unable to reach an agreement with contracts and have since left. The group of players have been named Bipolar Method for the time being and will take the forfeited slot. 

Just in case you were wondering what the players were being offered:

$1 salary for each member of the team, no profits from skin sales and a 25 percent cut for the organization on winnings

Longtime Blizzard Employee Set to Walk Away

Many people have probably either heard of Chris Metzen, or at least heard of what he's worked while at Blizzard. He was part of the team when Justice Task Force was the big name for the company, and he's been a vital part of many of the projects (Starcraft, Warcraft, and Diablo) Lore. Now he did point out that he's not stepping down to go work somewhere else, he feels that at 42 it is time for him to slow down and rest. He of course will be missed, and I'm sure some of the more hardcore fans will mourn his absence.

It’s a massive change for me, but it’s one I’ve been looking forward to for a while now. It’s ironic given the fact that things have never been better or more energized at Blizzard. Just this year alone has been incredible.

Legion’s arrival. The launch of Overwatch. The Warcraft feature film.

I’ve never been more proud of Blizzard and the quality of its products than I am now. It’s remarkable that even after all these years we can still reach new heights and take the world for an amazing ride. I believe Blizzard’s future is brighter than ever.

I won’t lie—it’s going to be really hard stepping away from these worlds that I love. But I’m content that I’m leaving them in the hands of the most passionate, talented, and dedicated craftsmen ever assembled.
