Good one, Escapist staff! You had up until "the Rolling Stone" of game journalism and I nearly spit my tea all over the monitor. My monocle did pop though. Good show!

Wow, on April's Fools day... how lame.
Really guys, just don't try if you're just not gonna make up something actually worth a chuckle. :(
April Fools Day has become so popular and routine these days that there's no surprise involved at all. Nobody believes anything that anybody says on April Fools Day, which defeats the purpose.

No way, I was considering posting this exact topic as an April Fools when I was at work today and then come home to find I was beaten to it by the staff themselves, great minds think alike eh? Good on you, hope a few head's spun when they read this XD

Wait, what?

Wait, WHAT?

Oh, right April Fool's. Damn, it gets me every time. Well, gotta admit, I had a nice laugh over the sheer absurdity of this, when I saw the article posted.

Love it ^^ my favorite parts were the:
"Mr. Sterling will be transitioning from the company in May."
"Mr. Chipman will be transitioning from the company in May."
etc.
jokes :)

When I saw the title I actually believed it until I realized what day it was, you managed to win this time but next year I shall have my revenge.

April Fools jokes are only good if you're going to fully commit to them, esccapist.

Come on! Where are the intrusive adds, the popups, the autoplaying... ads... the... uh... ummmmmm.... shoddy videoplayer?

Well, this is awkward.

EDIT: Hey, at least you don't require us to sign in exclusively through our facebook accounts yet. Yet.

:D HA! For a second it got me, then I thought, and then I laughed. Well done. Good timing what with the recent changes. Though, it would have been better if ya waited to change today.

I guess I'm more gullible than most here, because I almost had a fucking heart attack. Granted, I never pay any attention to the dates.

They totally had me up until I checked the comments and found out that I'm the slow one of the group.

I'm not laughing. No one here is dumb enough to believe it. Should've tried harder to fool the audience.
