Just a friendly reminder
, folks, tomorrow is April Fool's Day, so be very careful about "breaking news" you might stumble upon. Whether it's Blue Hobbits or Wii.TV
, just take what you read with a grain of salt until the clock strikes midnight. Here's some helpful advice:
- If it seems too good to be true, it probably is: We'd all love for Nintendo to suddenly give everyone who clicks a link a free Wii, but face it, it doesn't seem too likely.
- Sourcing is important: If a blockbuster April 1 story comes from unnamed sources or a mysteriously dead web site, remain skeptical. The least they could do is forge some documentation for their joke; make them work for it.
- Pimps at Sea is never coming out: It's a Bungie inside joke, and someone always manages to fall for it. Also, whatever Blizzard announces tomorrow is a lie, so just have a laugh.
- Duke Nukem Forever is never coming out: That 100% confirmed release date you'll read about tomorrow? Total baloney.
Any questions? Here's a bunny with a pancake on its head.
