All been keeping an eye out for cool April Fools gags on annual “Don’t Believe What You Read On The Internet Day”?
Blizzard, as usual, have put a lot of work into entertaining the masses (aka us) with their April Fools. I think they have a nice balance here of fun ideas that aren’t SO good that everyone would be pining for the rest of the year.
Blizzard EU: P1mp My Mount – Yeah I want a shoulder mounted sub machine gun for my nether ray too!
Blizzard US: Check out the new Dance Battle System. And check out the ads on that page also (I don’t blame them, it’s gonna get a zillion hits).
And thanks to The Ancient Gaming Noob for the heads up on the Starcraft II and Diablo III April Fools.
Diablo III: Archivist Class. It has an ability called Shush! There’s even an animation showing it in action … *pines for D3 some more*
Starcraft II: I can’t get through to this one but you’re welcome to try here.
And as if that wasn’t enough, they’ve run the US WoW forums through a roleplaying parser. Which they really should keep since it makes everything way more amusing. Here’s a random example (of someone asking about Malygos phase 1):
Dammit, I’d actually LIKE that Dance Battle system thing, heeee! 😀
