I gotta admit, the Human Defiance video is pretty damn funny. But I'm still damn disappointed there's still no sign of a new Deus Ex game.

The best April Fool's thing I have seen so far (not necessarily in the "it fooled me" department) was the Thinkgeek Eye of Sauron desk lamp. I hope they make that for real!

I wonder what other countries must think of this shit though. Surely not everyone knows about or celebrates this retarded half-holiday.


thinkgeek always has cool stuff for April 1st. I liked the batman vinyl sticker and the trench run beanbag deal...


I love that some of their April fools stuff become real products too. I like the Batman family stickers but they may be too grim to do for real (although I would happily put them on my car). Every year they seem to come up with something that you think, "maybe..."

Still, the best April Fool's gag had to be the BK "left-handed" whopper. Lefties coming in asking for it, other people getting angry and demanding a right-handed one. Lol!

The Human Defiance joke was pretty lame since they teased it yesterday.
I didn't see the teaser, so I thought it was pretty funny. I love the 8 bit spoof bc that's a trend I don't really like.

Yeah I'm pretty pissed too! They've been really quiet about new stuff and then boom they say their going to announce a new game. Very very poor taste.

Yeah, me too. They wouldn't have these people doing Deus Ex-themed AF jokes if they weren't still working on DE stuff.

lol@ the Deus Ex, what a kick in the nuts. Even though this is April Fool's I am pretty sure a sequel is in the works.

The DE thing is annoying to people because they hyped a new game.
Had they simply put this video on the internet, as most companies do, people would be laughing rather than feeling duped.

I don't much care. I'll take a new game when it comes, and I'll ignore all the endlessly unfunny AFD jokes.

But if you're craving more it's because the last serving was good, so wouldn't you rather laugh with the cooks than be pissed at them? That's kind of the point, I care about Deus Ex myself, and the people who made this gag seem like they care too, so it's all good ... I might be more pissed off at the lack of competence if I didn't have so much goodwill toward them, but even then it's just an April's Fools.

I suppose the Deus Ex thing is upsetting because people genuinely crave another game in the franchise. I can also understand the people upset with Google, that they have time to work on these high-quality gags, but can't figure out where they are going with Google Local or how to gracefully monetize Google Reader.

C'mon you bunch of wusses! Suck up April Fool's, you bunch of party poopers. What, are you pissed that you got fooled? That's what it's all about, you sissies!

It has nothing to do with "entitled". Nobody here claims to be entitled, acts entitled, and this is nothing more than you tossing out the word for no other reason than you feel differently.

I'll admit it's a hypothetical since I missed out on the premature tease, but I'd like to think that I'd still have rolled with it and tried to get some entertainment out of the devs of one of the best games of the last few years poking fun at themselves. Makes my day better than being pissed off at an imperfectly deployed friggin' April's Fools gag. It's that contrast in attitude that has me puzzled.

I just got done washing my Gigabyte GTX 680 OC Windforce X3 like the picture showed and the PC won't boot. I wonder if he used some special soap. /:

Geez, people feel entitled enough to bitch about an April's Fools not living up to their expectations now?

I came in cold and thought it was pretty well-done. Heck, I'd play it ...

It has nothing to do with "entitled". Nobody here claims to be entitled, acts entitled, and this is nothing more than you tossing out the word for no other reason than you feel differently. Most here are pointing out out that it was a lame joke because the setup and teasing came on not-April Fool's Day. Imagine throwing somebody a surprise birthday party a week or so before the birthday: true, the person would be surprised, but the fact that the party was being deliberately thrown on the wrong day makes the 'surprise' kind of a cheap one. At that point nobody would have had to an effort into keeping the secret, which is part of the fun. In much the same vein the impact of the joke, here, is lessened as the setup was very cheap: you can fool anybody with an April Fool's gag if you don't hold it on April 1st, but primarily on a different day, even if that day was close at hand.
