Fake WoW Patch Notes Are Still The Funniest Part Of April Fools'

Fake <i>WoW</i> Patch Notes Are Still The Funniest Part Of April Fools'

“Players now take 10% less damage in PvP.” “Players now deal 10% more damage in PvP.” “Players now act like they take 10% less damage in PvP, but they really don’t. They’re just kidding around.” You haven’t failed me yet, annual fake World of Warcraft patch notes.

You Can Play <i>Pac-Man</i> On Google Maps Right Now

April Fool’s Day is imminent, which means that we’re about to see A) lots of unfunny people making awful attempts to prank everyone; and B) some people—often including big tech companies like Google and Blizzard —creating some brilliant things. Here’s one example of the latter.

Go to Google Maps, find yourself an area with lots of roads (New York City will do nicely), and click the big...

Every Guild Wars 2 Character Is An Airplane Today. Vroooom!

Every <i>Guild Wars 2</i> Character Is An Airplane Today. Vroooom!

Whooooooosh! A hilarious old bug becomes the status quo for one day in Guild Wars 2, and fans are having a blast.

Now I can see how some players might be a bit angry about their characters having their arms transformed into airplane wings for a day—poor role-players. Aside from a tiny bit of dissent, players seem to be enjoying themselves, as seen in Triple T Gaming’s rapidly-assembled music...
