Default April Fools

April 1st, 2016, 11:35
We could try to collect some April Fools stories.

Larian had one yesterday with the VR option without having the need of goggles.

Humble Bundle has a font collection, just for the day.

well, google had a totally failed one!

They added a extra send button "send + mic drop" which would send a gif minion and a message in the style of "conversation" has ended. A really cocky way to end a conversation, once this had been sent you'd not see any more replies in that conversation.

The problem? it was to close to the real send button, so a lot of people pressed it by mistake leading to a lot of problem for business using gmail

From trading card game to "classic" MMO with heroes, items and other stuff everyone adores (read: grinding) - Blizzard is redoing Heathstone.

Rocket League offers free so called ragequit bot on the official site. So far noone posted what happens if you actually download it, probably people don't want to admit they suck in that game.
One thing is sure, if real, this thing would be nifty to have in many team pvp games.

Worms are getting another sequel. A "loveable" one.

League of Legends becomes League of Draven. Everyone will play Draven and Draven is the league!
Not only next free rotation champions are only Draven, the store gets new entries, of course all about Draven and the site gets special Dravencentred new sections:
http://na.leagueoflegends.com/

It's not the end of it. Australia/New Zealand server gets localisation pack.
http://oce.leagueoflegends.com/
Alistar will be renamed into Big Al, Bard will get a proper name - Brad, etc.
Expected are more suggestions on changes, so far everyone's too shy to write a champion should be renamed into PluggerBuster.

-

Reddit, a common HQ for spamming, trolling and other misbehavior including games and gaming got governments' attention.
http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news…t-Surveillance
While in 2015. the site received guarantee they're not under any kind of surveillance, this year such note wasn't send, which logically means if you're reddit member, now "all your base belongs to" the government.

-

You always wanted to cosplay all those impossible_to_exist in RL cutes from Final Fantasy games? An official store with just about every single FF15 ingame cloth piece possible is now open:
https://roen-ff15.com/en/html/
Yea, those prices suggest it's… But who knows, let's wait till someone tries to buy something.

This news just came in from CD Project Red
NEW DLC FOR THE WITCHER 3: WILD HUNT


CD PROJEKT RED, creators of the really cool game with a lot of dialogues that don’t actually bore you to death, are proud to announce an entirely new DLC -- Roach.

Available soon for only $4.99, the Roach DLC unlocks limited premium content -- a horse you can finally identify with! Pre-order customers will receive an exclusive Roach sticker so they can stick it… on their gaming system.

We’re always listening to gamers, and gamers are telling us they are throwing money at the screen and nothing happens. That’s why we’re extremely thrilled to be able to make something happen, said April Loofs, Senior Executive Officer of Incremental Revenue Acquisition & Fun, CD PROJEKT RED.

We’ve created a special developer video to show you how the DLC was created, so giddyup and click below!

I must admit, the horse voice acting got me laughing out loud. Also, loved the Worms one (pun intended!).

In RL me and an trainee were fooled quite hard by our autistic ( ! ) team member : He silently exchanged the week's meal card with an older one … I hadn't looked at it until that dday, so I didn't notice that.
You know, I was quite astonished as I was reading the *real* meal card in the canteen !

OnlySP becomes OnlyMP:
https://www.onlysp.com/announcing-change-onlysp-onlymp/
Over the seven years since the site was founded, OnlySP has watched the industry evolve. With the advent of more widespread internet connections, multiplayer gaming has evolved. Once a small niche—an additional gameplay mode accompanying an already-complete game—multiplayer is now a staple of the industry. Games such as Fortnite, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and Apex Legends are some of the most popular at the moment, and several developers are correctly following the trend to multiplayer, such as Bethesda with Fallout 76 and Treyarch with Call of Duty.

As such, Only Single Player is due for a rebranding. From today, we will be known as OnlyMP — Only MultiPlayer.
