Out of the Blue

Yes, it's April Fools' Day, the annual celebration of amateur comedy based on stretched credibility. As always we will attempt to separate the jokes from the actual news, and will likely got crossed up at least once. I'll do my best: It's the least I can do before taking over my new job as ambassador to Monaco.

Tried the demo, wasn't impressed. Seems pretty repetitive.

Anyway, remember the Left-Handed Whopper for April Fools?

"Canadians and Americans are world-renowned for their love of fast food, so it's no surprise that this prank fooled many on both sides of the border. In 1998, Burger King published an ad in USA Today heralding the launch of an exciting new product: the "Left-Handed Whopper." The burger was described as having the same ingredients as a regular Whopper, but with all the condiments rotated to optimize flavour for leftie customers. The next day Burger King announced that thousands of customers had requested the sandwich, while many others specified that they wished to continue receiving the right-handed product. After all, you don't mess with a classic."

The best thing about sandbox games, for me, is how you can play them for a LOOOOONG time, in a casual way. the storyline doesnt really press you to play every day, and especially in JC2 its almost just window dressing and not even a factor at all. its a very fun kind of gaming, a way to wind down or whatever

so.. here is the new ultimate sandbox game: Just Cause 2 + Red Faction Guerilla + Saints Row 2...

add that shit up, dude - it make you say "Whoaaa.." like keanu

alright devs fucking get on that
 
Go forth, and kill!

If that's your idea of an AF joke, it's not working. Bored
