For noting, the War Thunder Ponies faction are fully flyable jet powered ponies which shoot rainbow cannons, travel at over 900 km/h and carry a heavy arsenal of weapons...

Last night when I logged over 3.5k people were blasting each other with ponies. It's all sorts of hilarious (particularly when some poor bastard in a P51 or a FW190 gets caught in the matchmaker and dumped in to the game...).

Yea my guilds been having a freaking blast playing the Super Adventure Fun Box. Anet is running it on the official twitch channel atm for those who want to see what it's all about. Think guild wars 2 with a dash April fools goofiness and a heavy dose of 8 bit gaming nostalgia. SAFB is sticking around for the whole of the month so if you can't get to it today, no biggy.

The Super Adventure Box is amazing.

ArenaNet loves to go all out for holiday events but this one takes the cake. A group of four friends and I spent four hours in it last night and we only got halfway through the "game". The game itself plays like what would happen if you took Super Mario Bros and Zelda, mixed them together and added in a touch of Golden Axe/Gauntlet/Castlevania. I even got a Mario 64 vibe from it too.

It's a blast and I wish it was staying. It's more than an April Fools joke, it's a love letter to old school games, there are plenty of hilarious references too. For example, go into a shop and you'll find you can smash not only pots, but everything the shop keeper owns. All the while he'll be making passive aggressive quips at you.

The scale of that chart is idiotic.

I guess the scale is nVidia's idea.

Or in case of AMD providing the GPUs for the consoles they should call themselves envy-dia?

No, I meant idiotic given that NVIDIA is trying to show how much better they are than consoles, a technology they make no money off of.

That they stretch it so far just moots that point. It makes it look like consoles aren't too far from Titan, their $1000 special use product. That little "3X" isn't prominent enough to show the dramatic difference.

Paradox announced Crusader Kings Z: Forum

Wouldn't surprise me at all, if we'd see this idea becoming reality in a mod.

I thought Sunset Invasion (Aztecs) was a joke, but it ended up being real, so who knows?

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

My friend just sent me a key for Guild Wars 2 last night, and 20 minutes after I started playing I happened along one of those "Super Adventure Boxes". I opened it and was like "ummmm... WTF??"

EA was a bit too early with their Sim City, today would have been the right time for launching that joke!

GW2's Super Adventure Box is one of the best holiday events I've seen any MMO do ever. It's obvious they put a ton of work into it, from the sound track to the sound effects to the pixelated dancing flowers and Mario-style mountains.

of all the days, Today I had a booming Metropolis in the new SimCity, and I found some legendary items that were equal to those that are normally posted by Blizzard in their RMAH store. Not sure if I'm being fooled, or oh wait a minute! I , oh, ahaha...
