Plus some lame ones too

Today's that special day in the year where everyone likes to lie and mess with people's heads. Some are better than others, so let's take a look at what we think were the best ones of this year's April Fools festivities.

Out of all the jokes, Octodad with 32 dads is the one I think that really needs to happen. Come on, you know you want it too. 

 

Is Dean Evans screwing with our minds again with this Blood Dragon III: Vietnam War 2 teaser?

An awesome fanmade Pesona 5 trailer.

Goats invade Dead Island: Epidemic.

You can go catch Pokemon in Google Maps.

Blizzard shows us their take on a fighting game with Blizzard Outcasts: Vengeance of the Vanquished.

Nester joins Super Smash Bros.

Titanfall is getting Optimus Prime DLC, made by IGN

League of Legends gets Ultra Rapid Fire mode.

Paradise Lost: First Contact changes from stealth/puzzle solver into a shooter.

Nuclear Throne is now a first-person shooter.

The Witcher 3 mocap session goes horribly wrong.

Path of Exile becomes a Pay to Win game.

Arma III gets go karts.

Mighty No. 9's gets an apple character.

War of the Vikings gets a God mode.

Holo Vision comes to Gunnars. Okay kind of lame but hey there's a 15% discount code for today at least.

Garrus Vakarian Body Pillow

Skullgirls pokes fun at Ultra Street Fighter IV's Decapre
