Once a year, every news writer's day is trashed by the annual "just plausible enough to maybe be real but really aren't" jokes that game developers seem to have a penchant for foisting on the world. That's right. Today is April Fools' Day, the day of silly jokes, goofy devs and outrageous pokes at the games they make. We'll be adding to the article throughout the day, so put on your chuckle shoes and join us.

    Today china invades Alaska, and nuclear bomb has been launched, and we are minutes within the beginning of apocalypse. stock up your ammo and run to your nearest nuclear shelter. This is not a drill, I repeat this is not a drill.

    My fav so far is the Corsair Launcher Launcher to launch all your other launchers. :D

    Oh and PCGamesN's "news" that DOTA 3 will be an Epic Games Store exclusive :D

    As a news person, I 100% agree. However, some of them are pretty funny. :)

    The turn based Yakuza JRPG would have actually been great.  :'(

    The best one would be game studios announcing that they wont do layoffs this year.

    After 6 years and 13% completion,Star citizen will release as finished by 5pm this afternoon.Gratitude will be shown to early backers in the form of discounts,15% off your next ship purchase.

    On a lighter note .Blizzard is set to release their first mmorpg !!

    Twitch streamers are doing it for the gaming and not the money.

    Taxes and bills will plummet this year and governments will be 100% transparent and honest.

    The Canadian dollar will close by end of day at 99.9 cents US.

    McDonalds is a very healthy alternative to real food.

    There will be no more unfinished games released in 2019.

    It only takes one blonde to screw in a light bulb !!

    Diablo 4 will be GOTY and all Blizzard executives will have their bonuses reinstated,they earned it.

    Don't forget to turn your clocks back an hour

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I read it and just shrugged. Talk about underwhelming. I smirked very slightly at the "Baeblade" comment but that's about it. Maybe I just don't care anymore... @Wizardry Well done. :)

    Worlds First RGB CPU.

    While there's no mention of it anywhere in the notes, CO is switched to monochrome and players get the "Dark Champion" perk after login. Probably it is Cryptic's version of a joke :)

    (It looks really nice though. Have a certain Burton's Batman vibe, since it ain't simply a black and white switch, the sky is dark and cloudy too, etc.)

    I actually think this post coming from you, finally out of character, is the best April 1st joke out there. Well played mate, well played.

    'the only way he could nail it any better is if he used a cross.'

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 


    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    You could have just done the Star Citizen one. That was the best one and was worth an 'awesome' by itself.

    The Corsair Launcher was the one I found funny. I really hate this day.
