With yesterday being April Fools' Day, the internet was set ablaze with crazy rumors and fake news. DS Fanboy was even on hand with its own little something something to mark the occasion. Aside from telling you our most darkest fears, we broke news involving a certain Nintendo president and his the...

Did you enjoy our French Reference Day? We thought it'd be a fun way to celebrate the first of April. For those that missed it, in every post yesterday we included some reference to France, French language or French culture*. Feel free to take a look for yourself and try to catch 'em all. For all t...

As we bid adieu to this All Fools' Day, it's time to take a broom to the leftover balderdash and sweep it out of the house so we can start fresh and clean tomorrow. Straightgamer.net -- OH NO! The boys over at GayGamer.net went to "therapy" and are now devout heterosexuals. Now all they can ta...

With only so much time left in the day, we thought we'd fit in a handful of the gros amount of April Fools' pranks found in the various MMOs today. Age of Conan announces the Elf class (If you think this is real, check out the creation video) Guild War turns everyone into stick figures, maki...

We know, Gob Bluth. It's sad to see things come to an end sometimes. But, with each sunset comes a new sunrise. Does that cheer you up, little guy? Good. There were a lot of interesting things happening today. Oh, what with it being April Fools' Day and all, there's bound to be some interesting and ...

The problem with all of these April Fools' shenanigans is that some of the fake games, peripherals and features people dream up are actually quite awesome. Case in point is this first-of-April report on the WiiWare version of Tetris which, according to a conveniently broken-linked Famitsu source, ...

Hey, did you hear the one about Nintendo "seeing the light" and nixing Friend Codes? Or how about all the Nintendo 64 games being ported to DS? Final Fantasy VII DS? All these jokes and wishful thoughts are enough to make a Nintendo fan cry. Our amies at the Mario-centric Fanboy blogs compile the ...

Harmonix released its own in-game gag today, announcing "Rock Band Kart 2008." The Fools' revelation was posted in Rock Band's 'Community' section, accessible from the game's main menu. We can't help but read the "road" reference as a jab at recently unveiled Guitar Hero: On Tour, which severs the ...

ThinkGeek is certainly on a roll today with the April Fools hijinks. Not only do we have Super Pii Pii Brothers (and its bizarre peripheral), but now we have Wii Sports on the iPhone, as well as a conduit for shuffling between dead video formats. The Wii Sports on iPhone gag is nothing more than a...

In what's become de riguer for the folks at Turbine Software, this April Fools' Day sees the announcement of a brand new content update for Middle-Earth's MMO, The Lord of the Rings Online. Dubbed "The Battle of Amon Hen," the not-at-all-downloadable peckage introduces a new playable chicken clas...

If the truly, unforgivably old are given a driver's license despite their age, why is the same right not extended to children? That's the question automobile maker Kia dares to ask with their new KEE_wii, which forgoes the steering wheel in favor of a Wiimote. According to the release, the car als...

Oh ... dear. This is exactly the sort of video the internet shouldn't be showing us. Does it not realize the colossal, sensory danger posed by a combination of two of our favorite franchises? Seeing the Assassin's Creed garb running around a modern environment is one thing, but when the mise en sc&e...

In the rush to trick people on April 1, too many outlets forget the value of actually being funny. Thankfully, Planet Grand Theft Auto is there with our current (genuinely funny) favorite: Chris Tucker (perhaps best remembered from the Rush Hour series) starring as the voice of Niko Bellic in ...

Well, we admit we were snookered by the iPhone Dev Team's "we're selling out" alert, and so was our sister site -- but on a day when the hoaxes range from the desperately unfunny to the merely goofy to the silly-but-funny to the triumphantly hysterical, who can keep anything straight? Google's vario...

If you're trying to visit some of your favorite (and occasionally game-related) webcomics today, you might be a bit confused by the URL redirection. Here's a handy guide: XKCD's site now directs you to Questionable Content Questionable Content's site now directs you to Dinosaur Comics Dinos...

ThinkGeek has a proud history with April Fools' Day gags, even going so far as to make one of its jokes into reality after it snowballed in popularity. This year, the gang is pretty much guaranteeing that won't be the case with its super-exclusive Wii title ... Super Pii Pii Brothers. And yes, as yo...

IGN has a little fun this April Fools' Day with its exclusive Legend of Zelda movie trailer. The preview plays out like one giant cliché with fan service and a distinctive Uwe quality to it. We'd love to embed the preview and show you, but the code is broken and all we seem to get is some P...

Fantasy Guitar Hero controllers aren't new territory for April Fool's Day, but rarely have we wanted one to be real so badly. Imagine the class, the prestige of striding into the neighboring dorm with GAME's massive double bass controller slung over your back! Imagine how angry your significant ot...
