April Fools’ Day 2011 Compilation

All the fake stories in one place.

April Fools

It’s the worst day of the year! A bad time to be on the internet, today is when all your gaming hopes and dreams seemingly become apparent, only to fade away into fiction four minutes later. So, rather than create an influx of ‘April Fools’ Watch’ posts, we’re compiling them all right here.

We don’t want you getting excited over announcements that will never materialize. We know the feeling.
