Wow I didn't realize that EGM's been doing the best April fools' jokes. I wonder what they have in store for us this year.

Relientk773049d ago

I wonder what stuff we'll hear this year. Bring on the lies lol

TrendyGamers3049d ago

Mars Effect and the NES Google Maps are the first ones I've seen so far.

I had never heard about the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker remaster until now, haha. That's pretty good!

And the Zelda movie trailer from IGN was pretty convincing at first (at least for the first minute or so).

TrendyGamers3049d ago (Edited 3049d ago )

I still can't believe I fell for the Wind Waker one.

Relientk773049d ago

I forgot about the Wind Waker one. Wind Waker is fantastic

IGN had me fooled with the Zelda movie trailer...

they actually had some pretty good april fools jokes...

This was my favourite due to its sheer stupidity and awesomeness at the same time


Kingdom Come3049d ago

You must be the first person I've seen who actually fell for the Zelda Movie Trailer. I mean, really. You fell for that?

Nimblest-Assassin3048d ago


Hey...when you get excited for something... you fall for it easily...

Also, IGNs April fools this year was hilarious

April fools jokes are getting pretty predictable in regards to gaming. Guess we have learned to take any great news with a grain of salt comes this time of the year.

Who in their right mind would make a Lord of the Rings racing game, anyway?

Soldierone3049d ago

It would be a little more believable today though. With apps and cell phone "games" anything is possible....doesn't mean "anything" is good though.

DeadIIIRed3048d ago

Agreed, I've become more skeptical of most news now anyways

OhMyGandhi3048d ago

Ever since kart racing spinoffs came into existence, I don't know what to expect anymore.

Sheng Long In Street Fighter – EGM (1992)

I Do remember this one allright,

my understanding of the cheat was you needed all perfects on the bosses, balrog/vega/sagat/m bison which actually i could manage

lets say i never did get to fight Sheng Long even with four perfects

Dante1123049d ago

Yeah lol, that was a good one, MC.

Rainstorm813049d ago

I had many many....many attempts at this before i completed it and got nothing ...then after the fact find out it was all an April fools joke
