The ugly face on Deviant Art is even more annoying - it jacks up writing notes and comments/journals. And then we have slashdots stupid "day of choose your own faux news" i am not even sure there was a single news item today on slashdot that was not fake.

I think geeks are simply never funny - even xkcd has managed to make reading the comic annoying (albeit extremely geeky) (it nearly froze the browser, teaches me to use tabbed browsing ~.~)

Huh, is that a sign of getting old? There just wasn't much funny today.

Crabby was amusing to read about until he showed up on the wow forums. Yay for ad/flash blocker!

GW2 Commando skill videos take the cake. Awesome job ArenaNet.

Absolutely. I love the screen of the guys repeling out of the helicopter in the village, heh.

This is the first year that I think Google's April Fools is just not funny at all. Using motions to communicate is supposed to be funny? Have they never heard of sign language?

There is a quest npc in GW's Embark Beach where you have to defeat a robot which was sent from the future to kill a hero's mother named Sarah..

Sure most of them are dumb, but I think it's usually worth it for the few gems. (Could be said about most things in life I guess.) Blizzard has done a fine job this year - that StarCraft video wins on multiple levels.

So do I. It's best to just turn off the internet on April 1st. Every geek tries to be hilarious and very few are successful and most are just annoying.

Yeah... the Radeon 7770 one is really stupid, since, short of them changing their nomenclature around, they're likely to actually announce one in the next few months...

There has to be a big Duke Nukem forever April fools joke coming right? I mean you just can't ignore such an important day with a franchise like that...I will be extremely disappointed if there isn't some big news from that dev/game.

Same here, but the good thing is you can get over the day by just not reading any news on non major news sites. ,)

Every year I find a few articles that although are released on April 1 I sit and say "ah, damn, that would be nice to have in game XYZ".

I think Blizzard wins, so far...

side note: Last year, Blue did some post on 3d at some point (can't find it now), and actually made the post with alternating red/blue letters. I emailed him and told him this would make a great april fool's day gag for the site (an entire day of posts like that, to make people blind), but I'm guessing it would have required a TON of work (each news article would have to be manipulated), and the reward would have been pissing most people here off.
