So far there's already some good April Fools pranks going on: Notch's new game, Mars Effect, Turtle Beach's 360 degree headsetand pixel Google Maps(click 'Quest').

So, post any other April Fools related pranks you come across (games related or otherwise).

God damn it. I was just about to post a thread with this title and you went ahead and made one 9 hours ago. Oh well.

Reddit "Archives"

Razer Augmented Reality Visor

Edit: Blizzard announces their new iOS game Starcraft: Supply Depot 2 (some great jabs at both Valve and Bioware), their new line of Educational games, and their competitor to the Tamagotchi

And for E-Sports fans Complexity announces that they shutting down all their teams to focus on the mobile gaming scene (this is a jab at the World Cyber Games who are actually cutting every game from their tournament except for mobile game)

What about that [adult swim] thing that's going on, apparently?

Guys, check out YouTube. Something stupid has popped up.

Today/Tomorrow is probably the worst day to have a heart attack. Just a heads up if anybody was planning on going all heart attacky today/tomorrow. Carry on.

Specifically that if you go to "the end of time" the top post is Half Life: Episode 3 released.

I think Pixel Google Maps may actually be a real feature because on the front page they're advertising a new NASCAR car with a Google Street View set up.

Also, Ad Block now shows cats instead of ads.

Are there any special sales going on anywhere? Like that time Oblivion's Horse armor was like 60$ and the other DLCs were 1$.

I'm guessing this is something for April Fools, but Grooveshark gives a pop-up of "Hipster <name>" dissing your musical tastes when you play a song now.

Now I hope they keep the Google Quest Maps and AdBlock cats. April 2nd might actually suck once they're gone.

The SWTOR ship droid one is pretty great, mainly just for the intensely epic music in the footage.

Definitely. Some of these April Fools jokes are great; it's sad to see them go after only being around for a day.

Kitty-blocked images is the best, though I wish it had a puppy option.

I would really keep this on all the time.

I don't think that's a joke. It's been like that since the change.
