While it’s still Easter Sunday on United States, many websites are already celebrating April Fools Day. Likewise, we’ve gathered some of the best pranks done by gamers alike.

Half Life 4 (link)

Since Valve is having a hard time confirming the existence of Half-Life 3, why don’t we just skip everything and release Half Life 4? Yes, SteamDB site nailed this one pretty good. They even included this on their official database app to make it look more legit. Take note this game is playable on Linux OS too.


After SoniComi, it appears devs are busy on releasing a new project for Super Sonico and it will be released next year.

Tanks, moon craters and outer space. What could go wrong? Expect this new map to be included on WoT 8.5 update which is ready to release on May.

Blizzard’s Crabby Is Back


This creature was first introduced by Blizzard a couple of years ago and today, it’s back appearing on the side of your screen whenever you try visiting any forum links under WoW EU. For those who can’t see it, crabby pretty much works like the ‘wizard’ widget from Windows XP’s search bar.

Valkyria Chronicles x Sailormoon (link)
