Woody & Ted: "See? Not Funny!"
Posted: Thursday April 2nd, 2009 by

I don't judge anyone for enjoying April Fool's pranks. But when it comes to news venues and sites we're supposed to be able to trust, I think it's a HORRIBLE practice. So, each year I actively rebel. I don't post or, for that matter, trust any sites on April 1st and I think it's ridiculous that I have to take that position.

What really causes issues is the regurgitation factor. So many "news" sites copy and paste items days after they were originally posted that April Fool's news end up getting tossed out there again to confuse more people. It also annoys me that some places release legitimate news and then have to fight April Fool-ishness to get their news items heard/accepted.

All that being said there were a few things that amused me. Interestingly enough they all exist without being mistaken for anything other than an April Fool's joke. The Terran Terra-Tron for example, where an entire Terran base transforms into a giant battle mech. That's great. The Diablo 3 Archivist character wasn't bad either. That dialogue wheel is hilarious. "When it's ready, of course." Ha! And the Umbrella Corporation requesting a government bailout... brilliant.

Here would be where you shake your first defiantly at my anti-April Fool's day bias and tell everyone what your favorite April Fool's day joke/prank was. Note: It doesn't have to be game related. Just keep it clean, huh?
