Imagine if the Halo movie had all sorts of "epic" marketing, no hints at anything but straight up Master Chief shootin' dudes. Now, imagine if it ended up as a Bollywood movie. That would be the greatest thing ever. :lol

Civilization V Getting Extreme Diplomacy Mode




Firaxis Games is tweaking the classic Civilization formula with an all-new way to become the world's mightiest nation: Extreme Diplomacy mode. When standard military conflict and diplomacy aren't effective in Civilization V, players can enter a deathmatch with another world leader.

Whoever comes out victorious automatically gains control of their opponent's entire empire. As such, the threat of being challenged to fight one-on-one is a constant factor to consider while upgrading your cities and expanding your fine country.

Each leader will have a special attack and finishing move, including: George Washington's Wooden Tooth Chomp Attack, Otto von Bismarck's Hurricane Helmet Spike Attack, Cleopatra's Phalanx of the Leopard Army, Genghis Khan's Arrow Shower from the Mongol Bow, and Julius Caesar's Reverse Assassination.

Lastly, Firaxis confirmed the existence of a deluxe edition with a special eight-button joystick intended for the Extreme Diplomacy mode. No price was given at the time of writing, unfortunately.

Is anyone else being accused of being a fraud who trades stolen merchandise on cheapassgamer.com?

Edit: Guess it's a joke. I hate today :/

Phantom Dust 2 To Be Revealed At E3!
Our inside sources today told us that the sequel to a forgotten franchise Phantom Dust is in development. The project is being outsource to Artoon and From Software with Yukio Futatsugi as the lead director.

Yukio Futatsugi was unable to comment but he noted on his blog that he was recently hired to develop a "mysterious" game.

Our sources said it is 99% likely to be Phantom Dust 2 or Panzer Dragoon. It will most likely be revealed at E3 or Tokyo Game Show this year.
:lol

Yeah, weak one.

I know this isn't totally related but Conker's Bad Fur Day not being the April Fools Joke in that one EGM was the best April Fools Day not joke of all time.

I just ran into a 2006 april fool's article on Gamespot which gave a prediction about the console market in 2010. It's actually more accurate then any prediction done by 'real' analysts. :lol

lol wikipedia:

Did you know...

# ... that Martin Van Buren was over twenty feet wide?
# ... that residents of Castleford, England, were incensed when their council tried to eliminate Tickle Cock?
# ... that the citizens of Picoazá, Ecuador, elected foot powder as their mayor?

Wikipedia's approach to April Fool's Day is to post things that are true... but misleading. Or just so bizarre that they're hard to believe they're true; last year's Featured Article was on a notable woman named Ima Hogg, for instance.

Guild Wars Skill Updates.

Highlights:

Vengeful Was Khanhei: changed functionality to: "While you hold Khanhei's ashes, skills used on you are interrupted, but are allowed to finish when you drop his ashes. This skill is the best item spell of all time. OF ALL TIME."

Durability
Weapons and armor now have durability. Durability decreases whenever you take damage or use a skill. When the durability for an item reaches 0, that item is destroyed. Repair Kits (100 uses) are available from the Guild Wars In-Game Store.

Hard Mode Adjustments
Now called Hard-Core Mode.
All player deaths in Hard-Core Mode are permanent.
Permanently dead characters can still log in, but they may only visit the Underworld map and cannot trade, access account storage, or interact with merchants.

Heh... but wait...

NOOOOO

# All vampiric skills, when equipped, now cause your character to sparkle in sunlight.

I like my necromancer... :(


Really though, good "update" there. It's pretty funny, for sure.

Fun thing about the 'PlayStation Scent' joke is that LittleBigPlanet's April Fools costumes turn your sackboy/girl into bottles of perfume.

Was the Blaster Master: Destination Fred thing posted yet?

It's pretty damn obvious that thing is a joke, what with the other Blaster Master being revealed days before release with this one being revealed a month prior.
They even went ahead and put the game on eBay RIGHT after the announcement, too, to make sure we're not actually hoping for it.
