Oh, Internets. You and your silly April Fool's Day jokes. We would never do anything like that. We're far too serious. To combat this nonsense, Destructoid has collected all the April Fool's Day hoaxes we could find as a public service, presented here in one easy-to-manage list. We'll be updating this list throughout the day, so keep us posted if you see anything.

Best gaming AFD jokes:

Not-so-funny gaming-related AFD ones:

  • Taito: a press release on Space Invaders and bringing the quarter back
  • Gameloft: press release announces The Oregon Trail: Origins - cave men going west
  • Blizzard: new character, Archivist

Ones that had us fooled but were true:

There's even more internet nonsense after the jump, including the non-gaming stuff. More is coming throughout the day.
