April Fools videogame stories – Have you been fooled?1 Apr 2014
On occasions there’s the odd press release that drops into our mail boxes on April Fools that may catch us out. It’s doesn’t happen often, but it can happen. Today the industry is up to its old tricks again, and seeing as its after midday, we’ll point out the stories that have surfaced so far. Most have been quite obvious this year although I think the Starbound game updates may have caught a few people out.
