April Fools' Day 2015 – Best Gaming Gags

Half-Life 3. IGN's Legend of Zelda film. Collecting Pokemon on Google Maps. The first day of April has become a day when you can't really trust anything that on the internet. But from misdirection to shameless fabrication, there've been some utterly brilliant gaming gags over the years.

We've asked what your favourites have been in this week's #GMGasks, but here are five of our picks from this year's gaming-oriented slew of daft pranks and fake announcements.

Pac-Maps
Google did magnificent work last year with Pokemon scattered across the world in Google Maps. This year's might be even better. Simply click the Pac-man button on Google Maps to turn the streets in your general vicinity into a maze for everyone's favourite greedy blob.

What's your favourite games-related April Fools or gaming prank? #GMGasks


Today is a day of jokes and pranks, of false hopes and fake products. It's a day when most announcements should be taken with a truck-load of salt rather than the regular pinch, but we love it all the same.

Happy April Fools Day!

With that in mind, this week's #GMGasks is all about joking around. We want to know... what are your favourite games-related April Fools or gaming pranks?

Rochard - Playfire Rewards Tuesday


Rochard is a physics-based puzzle-platformer with a gravity gun à la Half Life 2.  Cracking stuff.

COMPETITION! Win Talisman – 20 keys up for grabs

Nomad Games' mission statement is simple: tabletop gaming redefined. For the past few years, the studio have been working with Games Workshop to bring the tabletop classic, Talisman, to digital platforms. Since releasing Talisman Prologue, the game has spread to mobile platforms, seen additional modes, characters, and spells added, and can now be enjoyed in multiplayer by up to 4 players thanks to the launch of a new version.

In short, the freshly named Talisman: Digital Edition is pretty sweet. You can learn more about it here.

Nomad are also a studio heavily involved with their community. Only recently, they ran a community competition in conjunction with gaming charity Special Effect to design the latest character for the Talisman board, with sale proceeds going towards the charity too. The winning entry – the Shaman – is in active development and will be available to buy later this year.

Right now, though, we've got 20 keys of Talisman: Digital Edition to give away.

Vote for the Winner! The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 Competition

You may remember that we ran a little caption competition not long ago for some super sweet swag for The Book of Unwritten Tales 2. Thanks to everyone who entered, there were some absolutely brilliant entries, and we've created a shortlist of 10 of our favourites.

Now it's over to you, our dear readers!

We'd like you to decide the worthiest winners by sticking a vote on the entry you think is the best. We'll keep the voting open through until 12 noon BST on Tuesday 7th April, when we'll close the voting and announce the three winners.

However, to say thank you for being awesome, everyone on the shortlist will also win a Bloodsports.TV key. Personally, I love more creative competitions like this, and it's been great to see the response. When we get some special freebies in for giveaway, there'll be more of this to come!

Anyway, enough waffling from me. To the shortlist!

Aspyr Mac deals – Up to 75% off on SimCity 4 Deluxe, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum, Fahrenheit Remastered

Who says Macs can't play games! We've got discounts for Mac-compatible Steam keys on a trio of barnstorming titles.


First up, it's Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered. Quantic Dream's early effort isn't quite as refined as Heavy Rain, but it's more of a fit for the cinematic genre than Beyond: Two Souls, and the multiple protagonist approach suits the engrossing narrative very nicely indeed. If you like you games stuffed with branching storylines and player-driven narrative choice, this is a classic.

Competition Winners | Fractured Space, Pillars of Eternity, Bloodsports.TV

You may have noticed there've been a lot of competitions recently, and we're doing everything we can to keep that trend going. If there are spare keys, we want to give people in the community the chance to win them!

The past week has been rammed full of giveaway goodness, with Fractured Space, Pillars of Eternity, and Bloodsports.TV all featured. Thanks to everyone who entered, there'll be lots more to come going forwards, so even if you didn't win anything this time around, do stay tuned for more competitions in the very near future.

We will be dealing with the awesome triple-prize giveaway for The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, but we're just finalising the shortlist for the public vote. But yes, that'll go up this week too.

Before that, though, here are the winners from the Fractured Space, PoE, and Bloodsports contest. Drumroll, please!...

Strategic Savings – Up to 80% off on XCOM titles


There's always a slight worry whenever a company announces that they're rebooting a classic franchise that something is going to go horribly wrong. Even though the classic game or film or whatever will always be there, there's that little bit of fear that the new product might not live up to legacy of its classic inspiration, and that something might be lost in the process.

Thankfully, though, that couldn't have been less of the case with XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

IMPORTANT! Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition Update

Brotherhood of Steel? Let's talk about the Brotherhood of Deals...

As with our enormously popular promotion on Skyrim: Legendary Edition, we've seen a vast number of orders for Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition too this weekend. Again, a case of unprecedented demand has unfortunately led to limited stock. We can only apologise, we should have seen this coming, but more keys are incoming.

Massive Nordic Sale this weekend – save big on Darksiders, Painkiller, Titan Quest and more


Along with the huge Rockstar sale we're running again this weekend, not to mention the swathe of Mac bargains and the hefty Bethesda promotions we've got going on over the next day or two, there's are huge discounts to be had on a range of Nordic titles. We've got up to 80% off on franchises like Darksiders, Painkiller, Titan Quest, The Book of Unwritten Tales, and a whole lot more.

IMPORTANT! Skyrim: Legendary Edition Update

FUS-ROH-DAH!!

Since our killer Bethesda bargains went live today, we’ve seen an exceptional amount of orders placed for Skyrim: Legendary Edition. We'll be honest; we might have outdone ourselves with this deal! This is to let you all know that our stock has been flying off of our digital shelves far quicker than we could ever have predicted! It's our oversight in this regard, but more keys are on their way.

Weekend Mac Deals: Up to 75% off Star Wars, Batman, Hitman and more

Mac fans rejoice! We have deals for you this weekend too.


We've got 75% off on Batman: Arkham Asylum this weekend, with 50% off on Batman: Arkham City GOTY as well. Arkham Knight has been delayed until late-June, but that does mean there's more time to catch up with the previous games in the series. Action-adventure titles don't come much better than Rocksteady's superb firs two efforts with the Caped Crusader, and at these prices there's no excuse to not get involved.
