Every time April 1st rolls around I pretty much just have to avoid the Internet with the exceptions of Wikipedia and this blog. It’s not that I’m gullible, I just always forget what the date is. I’m sure if I had a job in accounting or something I would be more date-aware, but as a plumber I haven’t needed to know since I was in high school. So when I read about the new Deus Ex game last night, I was pretty stoked. Then the “official announcement” was made in this video.
Avoid the Internet and Read a Book Day! (April 1st sucks)
Attention: this blog post is completely RickRoll-free. Seriously. I’m sick of that fucking video.
Some of this news seems pretty legit at first. I guess that’s the idea. Thankfully, I didn’t fall for this very official looking Half-Life 3 prank.
Anyway, Dorkly has a pretty funny April Fool’s/Half-Life 3 comic here.
As for today I’m going to spend my free time in bed with a book. And maybe I’ll finally catch up on The Walking Dead.
