Get ready for one of the worst/best days in gaming

Culture Screenshot - 1162204

April Fools' is one of those days that I truly despise out of the whole year. Why? It's the day where instead of real news, we get fake news, or sometimes what seems like fake news, but it's real news. There are a few situations where it ends up working in our favor, like in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. And it's not like the fake news is usually that hard to discern from the real. My hatred stems from my early years, when I didn't rely on the internet and took the word of gaming magazines. So when Nintendo Power told me it's coming out with a Mushroom Kingdom Hearts, yeah, my heart/brain exploded just a bit, only to find out later that it was a joke. And after a few of these instances (I seemed to have never really learned my lesson each year) I swore off this for years to come.

But hey, I know a bunch of you enjoy it, so therefore I will still (hesitantly) post all those joke articles so you guys can get a good laugh out of it.

You can most likely look out for some of them starting today, since usually April Fools' posts starts a day early in the video gaming world.
