April Fools 2012 Collection

So, just some of the April Fools jokes that I've found this morning.

Google never fail to deliver: Google Racing

Virtua Vineyard by Sega

LoveFilm - 23 Minute Feature Films

I've also realised that as you become more and more desensitised to the weird stuff on the web, it gets harder to actually tell what is an April Fools joke and what isn't.

It's always nice to have a compilation of the year's April Fools Jokes, because not everyone can experience everything - so if you find anything, post away.

I doubt many people around here read The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal but if you do there's a seriously gliterry revamp of the site for april fools.

Same for the Devil's Panties webcomic...or should I say the Devil's Spanx.

and

It's always interesting to see what companies come up with on April Fools.

As usual from Guild Wars they made some changes to the skills

http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Feedback:Game_updates/20120401

My favourite from the skills changes are-

Thunderclap: changed skill type to shout. Renamed to "Thunder, Thunder, Thunderclap! HOOOOOOOO!"

Elementist: All magic damage is now based on rank in the Friendship attribute.

Warrior: Added new shouts: "Objection!" "Take that!" and "Hold it!"

Shadow Form: added the following functionality: "Deletes all characters on your account when Shadow Form ends."

I'm guessing Virtua Vineyard is for people who think Desert Bus is just WAY too exciting...

I laughed so hard at the end to the Assassins Creed one.

"Available whenever someone makes it, which they won't because we just made it up".

"Also available for Wii ... definitely not available for Wii"

And the look on the folks faces when that guy dives on the floor.

That was hilarious.

Necromancer
Minions have formed a union; you now pay 1 gold per second per animated minion.

Adblock decided it felt like showing pictures of cats in place of ads today. I would provide a link but that would mean googling it.

There's a link to play it at the bottom ;)

Bunch of other games on the site, but this is my favourite.

Wait a minute...

Xenoblade Chronicles is released today. My Gamestop pre-order.

Why...? Why have I been so blind? They're not going to release Xenoblade Chronicles today, after all!

If Xenoblade Chronicles is an April fools joke. You are going to see me in the news.

Blizzard announced the new authentication module called the Zergotchi. It also acts as your virtual pet.

Also, Blizzard are turning to some educational games with Blizzard Kids. There is a demo of the Flash game "Zergling teaches typing" on that page.

And Supply Depot which SirBryghtside mentioned.

I just discover this. If you're the type who hate seeing ponies threads on here then be glad you're not on the Bethesda forum today (if you are on that forum and also hate ponies then I take it you avoud it for the rest of today)-

Also going to the Guild Wars 2 wiki got that Minstrel from the Mesmer reveal update playing his song while you're on the page.

As part of an article that concludes: "with $450,000 in public damages, there were no survivors."

ThinkGeek have put out their new April Fools products.

Also, on Bulbapedia they are claiming that GameFreak is working on a "demake" of Pokémon Black and White to be released for the original Game Boy system.

Loving that one. Especially some of the features:

- A game ending that makes sense.
- Waist high walls.

I literally howled with laughter at those hidden blades! I was actually thinking this would be a really cool control scheme until I saw how you would need to dive from viewpoints! The faces on the people behind him are priceless.

Oh my god, there is an awesome xkcd special today (link will be valid until tomorrow). And the thing that blew my mind - you can't link to the picture. So I said "Oh, whatever, I'll just grab the link from the source code" but when I used Firebug to view the HTML code, the picture shrunk into nothing spectacular. When I closed the Firebug panel, it was awesome again. I laughed hard. I decided to leave that to Mr. Munroe - he's willing to provide me with entertainment to stop me from reposting it, so I'll oblige.

Changed the name of White Crabs in the Tarnished Coast and the Depths of Tyria to "Some Kind of Cave Demon."

Tee hee. Guild Wars always does some pretty good April Fools stuff. Good to see Corporal Banes back.

Smertnik:
Skullgirls to be released on handhelds

Now that's just not funny.

LOL

OT I remember some morning TV show the claimed this special water was like a magic weightloss drug. They had a massive segment about it, showing tons of before and after pictures etc.

I think there was a lot of angry calls when people remembered what day it was.

Totally want the the Ackbar bass and Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie. Even the Game of thrones perfume is epic.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned YouTube yet...

No idea why everyone's going for the ponies this year, but here's Ponies in the Playground: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/
