Among all the other April Fools’ Day pranks and jokes, games developers like to get in on the fun. The press seemed to like the Sony buys Nintendo joke. I read that a couple of times yesterday. Granted, I thought yesterday’s best April Fools’ joke was The Walking Dead’s season finale. *rimshot*
Anyway, ThatGameCompany and Eidos Montreal both had the best pranks of the day with a couple of “new game” reveals.
