Gosh, the internet is a fun place this time of year. :D With all the pranks and hoaxes floating around the web today, I say we might as well just list them all in one place instead of making a new thread for each one. If you find a good April Fool's prank while browsing today (game-related or not), post it here so the rest of us can get a laugh out of it (or lament our gullibility for having taken it seriously). Let's see how many we can get! :)

I have had SO much fun with Google Nose today, it is hilarious. Everyone should check it out x3.

Google has totally outdone themselves this year.

Youtube is the only winner though Destructoid turning into one of the worst sites on the internet is a good 2nd.

Been holding it in for a while,
Take you with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child

There's a report on fool.com (dead giveaway) today about some sort of financial bubble. Apparently, we're all going to lose our savings. Or we're gonna be rich. Or it's April Fool's day and it's really fun and easy to make people panic about money. ;)

The sad thing is that this was the first time i've ever heard Nintendo comment on a confirm/denial involving frequently asked releases of games (Mother/Earthbound for example)...and what makes it sadder is that I still haven't ;(

Backloggery. Now playing: Armillo, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Golden Sun, Klonoa: Empire of Dreams, The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, Radiant Historia, and Rayman 2: The Great Escape.

Blizzard did the best one thus far IMO. I really got taken off guard when I got rushed 2 minuets in to a game, took me quite a while to get what was going on.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

Andrew W.K. tweeted that's he's giving up partying forever. I think he wins.

Also, Reddit claims they bought TF2 and all users have to pick sides now. It's hilarious.

Also, some obscure band I follow on Facebook wrote that they got a grant from CalArts so they'd be playing in Shanghai for a year. I thought that one was pretty good.

Exactly.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Teen Nick's prank. I got so excited for the lost Rocko's Modern Life episode, they got me good.
