I'm so glad April Fool's was on Saturday this year. When it's during the work week, I'm trying to frantically decide what's real and what's not, but when just about everyone is off for the weekend, most of the jokes came early on Friday nig...

Now I'm a believer: RV is the future of gaming

I have to admit that I was skeptical. When something's so absurdly out of left field, you kinda have to be. For 40 years now, video games have been about sitting on your couch and staring at a TV screen. I didn't want to believe that would ...

Square Enix's ChocoGo parody apes startups, ridesharing apps

Dark Souls III gets a grainy grindhouse VHS trailer

This is one of those things that's clearly done in the soul of April Fools, even if it's basically just a marketing trailer. Taking a decidedly grindhouse strategy, this new Dark Souls III promo basically sums up the plot of the game w...
